NFL.com: These Two ‘NEED’ To Step Up

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 22, 2012 – 4:39 pm

(AP photos)

NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt today unveiled the two players from each NFC team who “must shine” for their teams to be successful.

These players, Brandt said, often fly under the radar, but can be just as important as its established superstars in getting their team to play in the postseason.

Which two players from the Redskins “must shine?”

Well, the photos above gave it away: wide receiver Leonard Hankerson and cornerback Josh Wilson.

Here’s what Brandt had to say about each Redskins player:

Hankerson:
“The Redskins passed 191 times more than they ran in 2011; with Robert Griffin III under center, this trend will continue. With his big-play ability, I think Hankerson has a bit more upside than high-profile addition Josh Morgan. The speedy long-strider will really open some eyes if he has the kind of year I envision.”

Wilson:
“The Redskins gave up 22 passing touchdowns last season, but not for a lack of effort by Wilson, who allowed just 36 of the 85 balls thrown his way to be caught (42.4 percent), according to STATS. The sixth-year veteran had a career campaign in 2011; if he can repeat that kind of production in 2012, Washington’s defense should be in good shape.”

It’s hard to argue against both players for the Redskins. Hankerson has been projected by many to have a breakout season in 2012, while Wilson is a key returner to a Redskins’ secondary that has much to prove this season.

When looking at the rest of the NFC East, here’s who Brandt points at as players that need to step up for their respective teams in 2012:

Dallas Cowboys: Andrew Holmes (wide receiver) and Barry Church (safety)
New York Giants: Will Beatty (offensive tackle) and Prince Amukamara (cornerback)
Philadelphia Eagles: Demetress Bell (offensive tackle) and Kurt Coleman (safety)
