Fullback is a position that hasn’t been a concern for Redskins fans since Mike Sellers returned to town in 2004. The team still has depth behind him in Darrel Young, a one-time linebacker that has made the switch to the offensive side of the ball.
Some things Young does very well. When he runs, it looks like a runaway train, and I feel sorry for any safeties and cornerbacks that he blocks. His hands still need time to develop though, which was noted during a running back screen-pass drill:
In the Shanahan offense, the fullback is active in the passing game. If Young is the heir apparent at fullback, he will need to work on his catching skills.
