Redskins Depth Chart (Washington Times Pre-Season Game 1 Release)

Recommended Posts

Sweet link, Some randome observations....

Wonder why Banks is underlined as a rookie as the PR and KR?

Kelly has no parenthese around him as being injured, yet he is buried on the WR chart. (Nice knowing ya)

Donte, TA, and Paul are competing for 1 or 2 slots. (What are the practice squad rules? My guess is that Niles is headed there)

I like the depth on the OL.

I like the depth at CB.

RB has me nervous. I hope Keiland makes the team, as he is the only proven back we have that is not fumble or Injury prone.

IF Carriker and Bowen and Jenkins play well this year, we have a potentially strong D and I am going to go out on a limb here and say that we will finish better than 30th this year. :)

Our LB corp is potentially SICK!

Looks like he's slotted to play FB.

Things I've noticed:

-Moss, Gaffney, Hankerson and Armstrong seem to be cemented as the first four receivers. I think they're going to keep five primary receivers. If that's the case, my prediction (not just based off this depth chart) is that Austin gets the fifth spot and Banks is #6 as a kick returner, and not really going to be used as a receiver except for rare occasions, if he's healthy. If he's not, Paul or Robinson may have a chance. We're not going to keep Stallworth as a 5th receiver. Or at least we shouldn't. If he's not #3 or #4 at the least, we need to release him and give him a chance to catch on elsewhere. What's interesting to me is how the receivers are grouped. I see guys that are Xs and Zs in both groups. X = Split End, or on the line receiver. Z = flanker, or off the line receiver.

-Everyone's favorite rookie last year (everyone is an exaggeration) Selvish Capers is BURIED on the depth chart. He's had a rough transition to the NFL. Best of luck to him, though. With hard work he could still make the team, but it's not looking good.

-Defense has shaken out to be pretty much as expected. Cofield, Bowen, Carriker. Keyaron Fox as London's backup is interesting. Perhaps that's just to get him on the field to see what he has, as I thought for sure he'd be competing with Riley and Rocky from the other ILB spot. But, then again, we need someone behind Fletcher.

-I put no stock in Grossman as number 1. Just as I wouldn't have put any stock in Beck as number 1. Shanahan is going to let these guys play with the first unit. Both of them. Grossman has been taking more snaps with the 1s due to Beck's injury, so he'll get the first crack.

I guess Grossman is listed as the starter, but the Shannys love John Beck. They don't love him too much.

My pet theory has been that Shanahan always expected Grossman to be the starter, but did not want to hand him the job. Rather Grossman would have to earn it.

Some of this relates to Grossman's contract. Probably Shanahan and Allen have been trying to get a multi-year deal done for Grossman at low dollars, which would enable them to draft a QB next year and keep both. Grossman called that bluff and signed a 1-year contract. He wants the upside $$ of upside performance.

Beck was strictly Plan B. I presume that they already knew before this training camp that Beck does not have a long ball. However, they still wanted Beck to push Grossman. In the event of a total flameout with Grossman in 2011, they might keep Beck and draft a rookie in 2012.

I didn't even know that Marc Verica was with us. I am not a UVA fan, but didn't he almost lose his job to a freshman last year, and didn't the Cavs suck really bad?

Honestly, he was just signed for another practice arm before Rex officially signed. I don't think he will be sticking around long.

I am a UVA fan, and I was stunned when I saw him in camp.

I think you have hit the nail on the head.
