Need to Know: Who is the most underrated Redskin?

Jul 7, 2014, 5:39 AM EDT


Here is what you need to know on this Monday, July 7, 17 days before the Redskins start training camp.

Three and out

—Here’s a tidbit on Jordan Reed that I came across over the weekend. Since 2010, only one rookie tight end has had more than 125 yards receiving in a game. That was Reed, who gained 134 yards on nine receptions against the Bears in Week 7. A healthy Reed will be a difference maker, no doubt about it.

—The NFL Network will reveal its top 10 players of 2014 this week. They already have revealed 90 of them and Robert Griffin III, who was 13th last year, has not been named. They have said that there are three quarterbacks in the top 10 and Brady, Brees, and Peyton Manning have not yet made it. That means that Griffin is off of this year’s list, which is voted on by the players. There are 14 QB’s in the top 100, almost half of the starters, and no RG3. Griffin will say that he doesn’t care but such real and perceived slights tend to motivate him.

—On Countdown to Training Camp on Comcast SportsNet, Trevor Matich picked Chris Baker as his most underrated Redskin. “I would never want to play against him,” said the former Redskins center and long snapper. “He is hard to move but worse than that he’s explosive, he gets into you and drives you back . . . He can play outside and inside.” Check out the video below and let us know who your pick for most underrated Redskin is in the comments.

    Griffin, Morris and T Williams all get their due, so it has to be Garcon on offense, he’s an absolute machine. Reed is promising but too green to be underrated. D Hall in a landslide on defense. Everyone downs him, but he always does the job well. Rak and to a lesser extent Kerrigan, already get some respect.

    Imo perry riley…..I understand lots of fans are still to b convinced but I think with fletcher no longer around he will come into his own this yr and lead the defense…..

    Griffin’s exclusion from the top 100 makes perfectly good sense. Whom would he displace on the list? No one. If he is miffed or feels a slight that he’s not on the top-100 list, he needs to look very closely at the man in the mirror. Maybe what SHOUL:D motivate him is to admit to himself that his play didn’t warrant inclusion on a list compiled as a result of his peers’ votes–not a deliberate slight or an unintentional oversight.

    Alfred Morris.

      Roy Helu followed by Darrell young. In my opinion we could have the best one two punch in the league. If you became a fan after Rg3 came to the team then you wont understand but helu has pro tape that proves that he is a special back when given the opportunity. Helu had the same fullback blocking for him a Derelle Young who has proven that he has a nose for the end zone. Archives
