DeAndre Washington at a glance

Selected: 143rd (fourth, fifth round)

College: Texas Tech

Position: Running back

Comment: ESPN.com’s Paul Gutierrez writes, “At 5-foot-8, 200 pounds, Washington is a threat to catch passes out of the backfield and is a change-of-pace back running the ball, but he may have to make his mark with the Raiders as a return specialist.”

College: Colorado State

Position: Outside linebacker

Height, weight: 6-foot, 229

Comment: ESPN.com’s Paul Gutierrez writes, “He’s more of a developmental player than someone who might make an immediate impact, meaning a special-teams role is probably his initial calling.”

College: LSU

Position: Offensive guard

Height, weight: 6-5, 326

Comment: ESPN.com’s Paul Gutierrez writes, “Alexander is versatile in that he can play both left guard and right tackle and was the No. 2-rated guard in the entire draft, per numerous scouting services.”
