Reed, Jamison Bring More To The Table

Going into the 2013 NFL Draft, draft “experts” tabbed the Redskins to be heavily invested into acquiring secondary depth/talent.

While the “experts” nailed their predictions that the 2012 NFC East champions would bolster their defensive back depth, few predicted the Redskins would add two running backs and a tight end.

When analyzing why the Redskins selected the two running backs (Chris Thompson and Jawan Jamison) it really shouldn’t come as a shock.

This is a team led by head coach Mike Shanahan and assistant coach/running backs coach Bobby Turner.

Together, these men have become the NFL’s running back whisperers. Run for a Shanahan-coached team and you’re almost guaranteed a 1,000 yard season at some point.

It will also be interesting to see how tight end Jordan Reed‘s speed and athleticism will be used in the read-option attack, as he could be lined up opposite of Fred Davis, set up out wide, or even in the backfield as an H-back

Or maybe even as a quarterback:

Once upon a time, Reed was one of the top prep quarterbacks in the nation during the late 2000’s.

In fact, according to his Rivals profile, he was one of the best dual-threat signal callers in the land.

Ultimately, he committed to Florida and transitioned to being more of a receiving threat than as a passer, but that didn’t stop him from lining up behind center as a Gator.

I wonder if the Burgundy and Gold will follow suit and insert some “Reed”-option plays into their playbook. He isn’t the only passing threat the Redskins picked up in the draft.

Late-round pick Jawan Jamison tallied four rushing touchdowns and tacked on two receiving touchdowns to his resume in his last year at Rutgers. However, in a game against Army, he showed that he can pull from his bag of tricks to throw defenses off as seen in this video starting at the 3:02 mark.

Will we see either player passing the ball this season?

Only time will tell, but opposing defenses beware.

Hail to the Redskins!
