One of the unsung heroes of the Washington Redskins’ season to this point has been center Will Montgomery.
Left tackle Trent Williams has gotten some attention this year — and rightfully so — for doing a fantastic job of protecting rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III’s blind side, but Montgomery and his relationship with Griffin III has been just as vital to the team’s success on offense.
ESPN NFC East blogger Dan Graziano has made sure to notice Montgomery’s efforts, however, as the six-year veteran from Virginia Tech has been a mainstay on Graziano’s weekly All-NFC East Team, which is not a week-by-week evaluation, but a reflection of an entire season’s body of work.
Here’s a look at this week’s All-NFC East Team, according to Graziano:
Quarterback: Robert Griffin III
Running back: Alfred Morris
Left tackle: Trent Williams
Center: Will Montgomery
Outside linebacker: Ryan Kerrigan
Punter: Sav Rocca
Again, the absence of Redskins fullback Darrel Young baffles me. Instead, for a second straight week, Graziano went with New York Giants fullback Henry Hynoski. The Redskins have the No. 1 rushing attack in the NFL, and a lot of the credit goes to Young, who has also been a presence in the Redskins’ passing game this season, as well.
Graziano pointed out last week on Twitter that Hynoski plays more of his team’s snaps, but despite this, I’d still give Young the nod.
