Some Predictions About Rookie Class

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 15, 2013 – 10:58 am

amerson

Five Mondays from now, the Washington Redskins will enter FedExField for the first home game in seven months against the Pittsburgh Steelers. In a matchup of two multiple Lombardi Trophy winning franchises, fans will have the opportunity to see how the Redskins, in preseason albeit, are going to respond to heightened expectations.

While the heralded 2013 rookie class has already gelled with some of the veterans through OTAs and minicamp taking tips on techniques and learning the intricacies of the faster NFL style of play, the preseason is their first opportunity to show what they bring to a Pro Bowl laden squad.

As we saw during the duration of the NFC East winning 2012 campaign, the season will be extremely unpredictable. Still though, it’s fun to forecast potential performances of the newest in the NFL’s fraternity.

Take a look at these predictions via Walter Football about how some of the drafted rookies will do this year and beyond.

Your Thoughts On Backup Running Back

You have spoken and the results are in for who you believe will be second on the Washington Redskins running back depth chart behind sophomore Alfred Morris.

With his 1,613-yard, 13 touchdown performance to include a trio of end zone trips against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football to end the season, No. 46 is the clear-cut starter in the backfield entering 2013.

But what about the other running backs behind him?

Well without further ado here is who you picked to be Morris’ primary backup this year.

Comparing Rush Numbers Vs. SB Winners

With 20 days until the start of the team’s first training camp away from Redskins Park in years, the Washington Redskins are entering 2013 as the kings of the NFC East for the first time since the 2000 season.

Despite the fact that the Redskins won their last seven games of the 2012 season to include five over division rivals and one over the eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, some considered the division title a fluke!

Was it because the Redskins bucked a trend of sorts in the modern era of the NFL by relying on their potent ground game behind rookies Alfred Morris and Robert Griffin III?

As ESPN’s Dan Graziano points out, though, regardless of the shift to aerial assaults being the primary focus for NFL offenses in 2013, the Redskins have built a rushing attack that is unparalleled—and that includes five Super Bowl winning squads.

FSU Players Can Hit Historic Marks Early

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 15, 2013 – 4:32 pm

On Wednesday, 2013 fifth round pick draft pick Chris Thompson officially became a member of the Washington Redskins when he signed his first NFL contract.

Welcome to the big leagues.

Thompson was one of two Florida State University players that the Redskins selected in the fifth round as his college teammate, Brandon Jenkins, was picked just eight spots after the running back.

While the twosome have already made Burgundy and Gold history by becoming the first ever FSU teammates to be selected in the same draft class, they have a chance to be the best FSU prospects to ever come to the Nation’s Capital.

Just by stepping on the field.

The 2013 Redskins draft class along with several college free agents that are expected to be announced once all contracts are signed, will start arriving to Redskins Park today for their first taste of professional football. Two of the newest Burgundy and Golders had this to say about their treks to the Nation’s Capital:

Reed, Jamison Bring More To The Table

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 1, 2013 – 11:24 am

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:

Local Rapper Welcomes FSU Draftees

Tallahassee, Florida is the capital of the Sunshine State, the center of agricultural work in the panhandle, and now can also claim to have produced two Redskins draft picks in the same round.

Hailing from Florida State University, Chris Thompson and Brandon Jenkins were selected within eight picks of each other in the fifth round on Saturday.

While it isn’t a rarity for college teammates to find themselves making the journey together from their college dorm rooms to an NFL locker room (think DeJon Gomes, Roy Helu Jr., and Niles Paul from Nebraska for example), the Burgundy and Gold had never taken FSU teammates together in a single draft let alone in the same round.

As the two prepare to make the almost 900 mile trek from Florida’s capital to the Nation’s Capital, one man who calls both areas home extended a welcoming hand to the newest Washington Redskins:

Jenkins Added To Loaded Linebacker Unit

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 27, 2013 – 4:03 pm

As I wrote earlier today, the Redskins had an extra fifth round draft pick in this year’s from a 2011 trade and used it on Florida State linebacker Brandon Jenkins.

Jenkins was the second Florida State player selected by the Burgundy and Gold in the fifth round. Just eight picks earlier, the Redskins took FSU running back Chris Thompson.

Did the Redskins just add another future Pro Bowler to a unit that already features Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrgian, London Fletcher and Perry Riley?

Jenkins was a preseason All-American and All-ACC candidate in 2012 before suffering a season-ending foot injury. If the former Seminole plays up to his top pick potential before being sidelined, the Redskins just got another late round steal–a Mike Shanahan specialty.

Here’s a little video to get you jacked up for Jenkins arrival in the Nation’s Capital.

Thompson Adds All-Purpose Threat

Posted by Chris Herting on April 27, 2013 – 3:28 pm

thompson

In the fifth round (154th overall), the Washington Redskins selected running back Chris Thompson out of Florida State.

Over the course of his collegiate career at Florida State, Thompson displayed quickness and versatility. Despite suffering a few injury setbacks, he offers a great runner/receiver combination out of the backfield.

Thompson was considered as one of the top all-purpose players in the country coming out of High School and if he can stay healthy, the Redskins may have just found a great dual threat to compliment Rookie of the Year candidate, Alfred Morris.

In eight games as a senior in 2012, Thompson rushed the ball 91 times for 687 yards (7.5 average) and 5 touchdowns.

Let’s take a deeper look at the former Florida State Seminole who will now take the field with the Washington Redskins.
