Here is a look at how the Redskins’ depth chart stacks up after last week’s NFL draft. Today we examine the offense; we’ll survey the defensive side of the ball later in the week.
(Note: Since undrafted free agent signings have not been announced by the team they will not be included in this post.)
Starter: Robert Griffin III
Reserves: Kirk Cousins, Colt McCoy
The only question here is if they keep two or three quarterbacks. If it’s two, McCoy is out.
Starters: Pierre Garçon, DeSean Jackson
Reserves: Andre Roberts, Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson, Aldrick Robinson, Ryan Grant, Nick Williams
Besides Roberts, the backups here are very much in flux. It would not be shocking to see any of them make the 53 and it would not be all that surprising to see any of them get cut. The team will almost certainly sign a few college and/or veteran free agents here for OTAs and training camp.
Starter: Jordan Reed
Reserves: Logan Paulsen, Niles Paul, Ted Bolser
They kept four tight ends last year. Paul’s special teams prowess made it an easy decision. Bolser will have to fight his way onto the roster the same way.
Starters: Alfred Morris, Darrel Young
Reserves: Roy Helu, Evan Royster, Chris Thompson, Lache Seastrunk
This will be an interesting situation. Morris is the clear starter but Gruden prefers a quicker, faster running back. Helu, Thompson, and Seastrunk all fit that description to one degree or another. There could be a competition for both roster spots and perhaps the starting job that goes in to 2015.
Starters: Trent Williams, Shawn Lauvao, Kory Lichtensteiger, Chris Chester, Tyler Polumbus
Reserves: Tom Compton, Morgan Moses, Mike McGlynn, Adam Gettis, Josh LeRibeus, Maurice Hurt, Spencer Long, Kevin Kowalski, Tevita Stevens
The only reserve tackles here are Compton and Moses; they might shed some inside reserves to pick up more at tackle. Besides Williams and probably Lauvao the starting jobs are up for grabs. The only reserves who seem to be assured of a roster spot are Long, Moses and McGlynn. Training camp should be fun for fans of offensive line play.
