Comparing Haason Reddick And Daryl Washington

Posted Jul 28, 2017

Linebacker Haason Reddick has been compared to ex-Cardinal Daryl Washington. Here is how the rookie stacks up to the former Pro Bowler, based off their posted measurables from the pre-draft process.

Coach Bruce Arians has not been shy to heap praise on rookie linebacker Haason Reddick in training camp.

Earlier this week, Arians said Reddick is probably the best coverage linebacker the Cardinals have had during his tenure, a high compliment considering Daryl Washington preceded him and his fellow inside linebackers – Deone Bucannon and Karlos Dansby – are quite good at it themselves.

The D-Wash comparison continues to come up, and Darren detailed their similarities in today’s feature story on the homepage.

As for Arians’ optimism about Reddick, it’s easy to see why. Here is how he compares athletically to Washington, a former Pro Bowler, based off their posted measurables from the pre-draft process. (Reddick’s numbers are from the NFL Scouting combine. Washington’s are from the combine and his pro day. He also ran a 4.66 40-yard dash, but I took his fastest recorded time.)

  • Chandler Jones And All-Time Cardinals Seasons

    Posted Jan 12, 2018

    Chandler Jones set the Cardinals’ single-season sack record in 2017 and made the All-Pro team. That monster campaign left me wondering how it compared to other great individual seasons by Cardinals since the move to Arizona in 1988. Pro Football Reference has a formula that tries to do just that, computing a player’s approximate value each season.

  • Observations From Expected Points Added

    A couple years ago, Pro Football Reference unveiled a feature called “expected points added.” It’s helpful because it compares outcomes on each individual play to a historical baseline of how teams have done in similar situations. Here are some observations from the Cardinals' 2017 season.

  • Defensive Line Holds Up Without Campbell

    Posted Jan 5, 2018

    Resources are finite in the NFL, which is why the Cardinals let star defensive tackle Calais Campbell walk in free agency last season. He signed a lucrative deal with the Jaguars and had a fantastic year, finishing tied for second in the NFL in sacks with 14½. While there’s no question the Cardinals would have preferred to keep him, the defensive line ended up acquitting itself pretty well.

  • Budda Baker Earns End-of-Season Honor

    Budda Baker was named a second-team All-Pro by Pro Football Focus for his work on special teams this season. The rookie second-round pick finished the year with a team-best 16 tackles on special teams and recovered a kickoff in Washington.

  • Bruce Arians' Confidence Was Contagious

    Posted Jan 2, 2018

    Jared Veldheer had been in the NFL for four years before signing with the Cardinals, but had never previously played for a man like Bruce Arians. The veteran offensive tackle was reflecting on that Monday, talking about the aura of confidence that pervaded from his head coach.
