Very unofficial Redskins depth chart, 08.05.15

Aug 5, 2015, 12:00 PM EDT


The Redskins are now a week into training camp. Here is my look at the team’s depth chart as it currently stands.

The team has 43 offensive players, 43 defensive players and four specialists for a total of the offseason limit of 90. There are only 89 players listed since CB Tevin Mitchel will not play this season due to shoulder surgery but he is still on the roster.

Players in bold are starters. The players below the dotted line are undrafted players and other long shots. Those players are listed in rough order of where I think they stand, although the coaches mix up players on the second and third team and below a lot so it’s hard to draw a clear line between the units.

This chart is based on my best evaluation as of right now. If you have a different opinion as to how they should be stacked up, please let me know in the comments.

    Nice to see Phillip Thomas way down the list. I hope for his sake he can improve and make a team somewhere but when your projected 2013 starting safety is number 7 on the chart it shows how bad the safety position has been mismanaged by Shanahan (keeping in mind the cap penalty of course.)

      The real question is, how did Allen ever see him starting?? Did his injuries hurt him, now he hasn’t been able to get much of a chance, being in Grudens (unable to stay healthy) doghouse?? I know we brought guys in but is he even making any plays?? We let Rambo go last year and he ended up in Buf, I know he had a cpl INTs. I’ll be interested to see what Ryan thinks of him. Thomas may not get much time on the field during pre season so he may struggle to find a spot somewhere. That’s 2 S gone before 3 years. Thankfully Scot is here now.

        I don’t know if Allen ever saw him as starting. Shanahan drafted Thomas and Rambo and immediately inserted them in the starting lineup despite where they were drafted. Thomas has the Lis Franc misses the season; Rambo shows that he can’t make an open field tackle and is then moved to teams where he pouts. Last year, there is no mention of either being a starter. Even with Ryan Clark’s struggles Rambo was released. Safeties that can’t tackle defy the definition of their position. Buffalo with it’s great d-line may have eliminated the opportunities for Rambo to fail in the open field tackling department. The word was that he was where he was supposed to be in coverages. Agreed that it will be interesting where they end up. Drafting them where they were drafted wasn’t the problem as much as developing them from there. The Shanahan position on development seemed to be you either have it you don’t and we’ll use what you got.. Reed, Morris, and Griffin started as rookies. None of these guys have been DEVELOPED into complete players but all have abilities that put them in the starting line up. Tom Brady wasn’t the QB that he is today when he won his first SB. Neither is Russell Wilson. Hopefully now with GM Scot we will see guys improve over their Redskin careers.

      No need for worrying about PT anymore. He was cut today, shortly after this posted.

      • bangkokben - Aug 5, 2015 at 4:44 PM

        Let the purge of Shanahan draft picks commence. Although we’re a good couple years before we count how many failed draft picks are still in the league a la Cerrato.

        • ET - Aug 5, 2015 at 5:56 PM

          Not that I want to sound like an apologist, but ol’ Shanny did come up with a few good prospects.

          Good riddance to Phil Thomas, though.

        • bangkokben - Aug 5, 2015 at 7:10 PM

          True. He was a vast improvement from Vinny and greatly inhibited from the salary cap penalty. At the same time he was responsible for 3 double-digit loss seasons. Trent Williams and Ryan Kerrigan are solid pick ups though.

    Rich is trevado and jeffcoat eligible for practice squad? I like the galette signing but with the uncertainty of him for next year I hate we r going to let two young guys with potential go more than likely.

    The team certainly does not look bad on paper. When you look at it from a can this person beat the other guy one on one and the answer is profoundly Yes at most positions. On paper this team looks pretty good or certainly better than they have been in the last 2 seasons. I think if it does not work out this year the Skins are going to have to look hard at the Coaching Staff again unfortunately. If we see another crap year I can not see Gruden lasting more than another year.

  4. goback2rfk - Aug 5, 2015 at 2:56 PM

    I would like to see some big stuff from Jordan Reed this year. Getting him over 1000+ yards and say 6 – 8 TD’s would be lovely.

      If that kid can stay healthy, the sky is the limit. Archives
