    Interesting that I hadn't heard about this guy. Not saying we should bring him in, but interesting nonetheless. Borrowed from Profootballtalk.com:

    DENZEL'S SON HOPING TO LAND IN THE NFL

    One of the little-known facts regarding this year's crop of draft-eligible players is that the pool includes the offspring of a two-time Oscar winner.

    Running back John David Washington, the son of actor Denzel Washington, has been training in Florida for the past several weeks, with an eye toward running again for scouts on April 22. John David Washington attended the UCLA pro day workout without any formal training in running the 40 and generated a number in the high 4.6 range. He has since been working with a trainer, and he expects to post a number in the low 4.5s the next time around.

    Washington, a four-year starter at Morehouse, was named in 2005 to the first-team all-SIAC conference squad. As a sophomore in 2003, Washington broke the school's 25-year-old single-game rushing record with 241 yards on 33 carries.

    Morehouse is in the same conference as Tuskegee, which has produced several NFL draft picks in recent years. Most notably, cornerback Drayton Florence was selected in the second round by the Chargers in 2003.
