    The NFL Draft is right around the corner and over the next few days, the staff here at The Buckeye Battle Cry want to share with you our favorite Buckeye Moments from the draft eligible players leaving the Ohio State program.

    Today, we take a closer look at defensive tackle Adolphus Washington, who finished his Buckeye career with 142 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, 13.5 sacks and a career best 49 tackles at a senior. Washington was a three-year starter for Ohio State and a first-team Sporting News All-American as a senior.

    Here are some top moments from Washington’s career at Ohio State.

    September 26, 2015 — “Big Man Pick Six” vs. Western Michigan

    Do I need to say anything more about this? The most remembered play of Adolphus Washington’s career — without a doubt.

    October 17, 2015 — “Defensive Black Out” vs Penn State

    If you ask Christian Hackenberg what he remembers most about his college career, he might respond with, “#92”.

    Hack took a beating in his final season at Penn State, especially on this night, where Adolphus Washington damn near took him off the field himself.

    Penn State was able to run the ball against the Silver Bullets, but thanks to a stingy pass rush that forced turnovers, the Buckeyes were able to take over the game.

    Adolphus had two sacks and a forced fumble. More importantly, it was his pressure inside the pocket that helped lead Hackenberg to a 6.1 QBR.

    September 19, 2015 — “A Hare in the Grass” vs. Northern Illinois

    Remember when Ohio State’s defense saved the season for the offensive side of the ball early in 2015?

    The defensive line pressure had a lot to do with that in their wins against Virginia Tech, Western Michigan, Hawaii and Northern Illinois.

    A major part of that was Washington, who had three quarterback pressures and a huge sack that helped stun momentum for the NIU offense.

    Washington led college football in quarterback pressures in 2015, with a majority of those coming on third down.

    September 8th, 2015 — “Delivering Much More” vs. Virginia Tech

    Michael Brewer took a beating against Ohio State on the road in 2014, but he was able to score two touchdowns and get the better of Ohio State at Ohio Stadium.

    So Brewer knew what he was getting into when he took the field in 2015 and was escorted off it shortly after halftime.

    Everyone talks about Joey Bosa face-planting Jake Ruddock at the end of the season.

    The two hits that took Brewer out of the game might have been the biggest pressure finishes of the 2015 season.

    Have a look for yourself above, Adolphus Washington is a monster tackler.

    Washington had three QB pressures in the season opener and was part of two huge goal-line stops for Ohio State.
