NFC East camp battles: Redskins

Now that free agency and the draft have played out and rookie camps have already begun, I thought it might be the time to start looking at the positions that are up for grabs in the NFC East.  Let’s start with the Redskins:

Could rookie offensive linemen like Josh LeRibeus and Tom Compton unseat a couple of the Skins' vets?

#2 Wide Receiver: Pierre Garcon is going to be the 1.  You don’t pay a guy what the Redskins paid Garcon to be anything else.  The #2 spot, however, is a 3-man race between Santana Moss, Josh Morgan and Leonard Hankerson.  I think that if either Morgan or Hankerson is anywhere close to Moss, they’ll get the nod, but Morgan has to learn the offense and Hankerson still has some healing to do.  That gives Moss the advantage, at least early in the season.

Left Guard: Kory Lichtensteiger is a player I like, but he’s recovering from a torn ACL and MCL, and he’s only in town on a 1-year deal.  The Skins drafted Josh LeRibeus with an early 3rd round pick.  LeRibeus is going to get a chance to win that job.

Quarterback: When the Skins drafted Kirk Cousins, they opened up Pandora’s box and immediately started a QB controversy.  Ha, just kidding.

Right tackle: Jammal Brown is really going to be the starting RT again?  Really?  I don’t even know who could unseat him, but I’m calling it a camp battle anyway.  That’s how little I think of Jammal Brown at this point in his career.  Maybe 6th round rookie Tom Compton out of South Dakota?  Hey, the Eagles got a starter out of a 6th round pick last year in Jason Kelce.  I sound like a broken record on this, but I just can’t see how the Skins can go into another season with Jammal Brown at RT.

Defense after the jump…

Safety: Not including undrafted free agents, the Skins currently have 7 safeties on their roster: Brandon Meriweather, Tanard Jackson, Madieu Williams, DeJon Gomes, Reed Doughty, Jordan Bernstein, and Cedric Griffin (if indeed the Skins have plans on moving him from CB to S).  I think this one is less of a “camp battle” and more of a question of who can be the least awful.

Kicker: The Redskins recently signed Neil Rackers.  To me, that’s pretty much an open competition between Rackers and Graham Gano.

    Yeah, the NFL really screwed the Skins with that salary cap penalty. Something had to give, and it turned out to be the safety position.

    What’s the RB situation going to be?

    1. The maroon bird says:

      Helu starting and splitting carries with Royster. Morris will probably get short yardage carries.
