Now that the Redskins have settled their 90-man roster, at least for the time being, here’s a look at the very unofficial team depth chart. The team currently has 44 offensive players, 42 defensive players and four specialists.

Players in bold are starters. The players below the dotted line are undrafted players or others that are not in any particular order.

    I can see Arie Kouandjio and Spencer Long take over as starters at the guard position along with Martrell Spaight starting over Perry Riley and Preston Smith starting at ROLB over Trent Murphy

      We will see one starter on the OL. Can’t see the Skins making too many changes. Spencer may beat out Chester, but I don’t see it. I would like to see Chester at center and let Spencer and Arie fight it out for the right guard spot. Chester was Kory back up. He’s a vet and he could make all the line calls and he is bigger. What do you guys think?

    Way to go redskins!:)

    Rich, based on the personal pickups through out the off season on the defensive side of the ball, it seems to me Washington is setting the table for more 4-3 fronts to help create pressure. With Smith being a bit too heavy for OLB and a bit to light for DE in a 3-4, I can see him moving around a lot like Bennett of the Seahawks if the Skins’ play more of a 4-3. Were the moves this off season a foreshadowing for a switch to a 4-3 hybrid a la Seattle? Or is it going to be a base 3-4 with a 4-3 wrinkle in sub-packages? I guess I can always just wait and see (but what’s the fun in that), just wondering what your take is.

    • jonevans511 - May 19, 2015 at 7:58 PM

      (I’m not Rich but you brought up a good point). I’ve heard Barry is a fan of mixed fronts so I think we’re going with a base 3-4 with several 4-3 packages mixed in….. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if the defense looks like a 4-3 to the naked due to tons of movement by the OLBs/DEs. It should be very exciting to watch!

    This is a great help. Are we short NTs going into camp? Need at least three. Shouldn’t Chris Baker and Robert Thomas be listed as NT (both listed at 325 pounds) ?

    • rozzmancometh1 - May 19, 2015 at 4:26 PM

      im pretty sure thomas is and always has been a nose tackle, unless they are trying him at end during camp but i doubt it. big swagggy plays it all tjo

    • rtcwon - May 19, 2015 at 4:34 PM

      I had same thought, you’re just a faster typer than me!

      Baker is a natural end & not good at NT but I’m pretty sure Thomas is a NT.

      • Ronnie Teseniar - May 19, 2015 at 7:14 PM

        In early articles they mentioned how they plan to move them along the line because all of the players we picked up and retained this offseason are versatile enough to move a long the line. He probably just put them under that classification because it would be weird to put them under both when its pretty common knowledge about their ability to play both DE and DT.

  5. rtcwon - May 19, 2015 at 4:29 PM

    Good work Rich!

    You’ve seen more practice & talked to more coaches than me (zero of both!) but pretty much how I would have it. Just a few questions:
    Didn’t Thomas play NT last preseason?
    How are rookie DBs above Porter, Rodgers, Davis & DCS?
    How is Thomas above anyone? His 7 rookie snaps were horrible & he was worse last year. To me, a rookie with no tape is better than the crap he’s put out.

    And two predictions – TRob is FS of the future & Big Swaggy earns starts over Paea.

    • 214hof - May 19, 2015 at 4:36 PM

      If you read, he says “not in any particular order”…

      • rtcwon - May 19, 2015 at 4:40 PM

        If you understood, the no particular order are the undrafted free agents under the dashed lines.

  6. Ronnie Teseniar - May 19, 2015 at 6:52 PM

    A lot of people keep saying they believe Spencer Long and Arie Kouandjio becoming starters at guard, but I find it hard to believe that 2 rookies (including sure starter Schreif) and a second year player make it to the starting line-up by the season start. Maybe by seasons end, but that puts a lot of inexperienced players on the line at one time. Experience has a bigger impact on player time than people believe.

    • bangkokben - May 19, 2015 at 7:19 PM

      Ronnie you’re spot on here. The consensus of the ‘rookie believers’ is that the status quo is so bad that anyone with or without experience is better than…Chester or Lauvao and especially whoever was playing right tackle. Yet, last year, Morgan Moses had a shot early on when Polumbus went down and utterly wet the bed. In came Tom Compton and he held on to the position for the rest of the year. Everyone praises Breeland – and they should – but the first game without DeAngelo Hall and Eli Manning was looking like a lock for the hall of fame and at the time no one had even heard of Odell Beckham Jr. Oh yeah he was the receiver the Giants ‘reached’ on in the 1st round and he’s missing the first four games. We fans know nothing but when we get it right we’ll tell you. Just you wait. Weeks 5 and 6. Vic Beasley and Leonard Williams back to back. Depending on how those guys do we will hear, ‘see we got the right guy’ or ‘see, we should’ve got…’

    DHallshould be higher on depth chart than Amerson. I still see Amerson as a FS. Archives
