Rookie Spotlight: David Amerson

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on cornerback David Amerson.

It isn’t an everyday occurrence when a cornerback can say that he averaged one interception per game during a full season, but that’s exactly what David Amerson did during his sophomore year at North Carolina State University.

During the second round pick’s 13 interception campaign, he had four different games where he recorded multiple interceptions.

In a move that the Redskins hope will pay dividends both now and the future, Amerson was selected with the 51st pick in April’s draft. While the defense recorded 21 interceptions last season, only seven came from the cornerbacks.

Amerson, though, thinks that once he gets the speed of the NFL down, he’ll build the confidence necessary to replicate his collegiate success.

“I think once you get adjusted to the scheme and get familiar with what you have to be doing and what plays you have to be making, you build more confidence, and the speed comes with it.”

I think it’s the same transition going from high school to college. It does pick up a little bit more, but it makes you have to step it up a notch.”

Rookie Spotlight: Jordan Reed

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on tight end Jordan Reed.

This time three years ago, Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed was attending quarterbacks meetings at the University of Florida.

Fast-forward to today, and Reed is learning the ropes of both his new position and the NFL under veterans Fred Davis and Logan Paulsen.

Despite being a supremely talented dual-threat quarterback during his high school days, Reed knew that a move was necessary to keep his NFL dream alive.

“I had a better chance of making it to the NFL as a tight end,” Reed said. “[Even] though I was recruited as a quarterback.”

Rookie Spotlight: Phillip Thomas

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on safety Phillip Thomas.

In the months between Super Bowl XLVII and the NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins were heavily linked to several safeties and cornerbacks. While the secondary showed flashes of potential at times last year, they struggled to keep opponents out of the end zone and only recorded 11 interceptions as a unit.

Thomas had been linked to the Redskins’ 51st pick in the draft, but after the team selected NC State cornerback David Amerson it seemed all but certain that Thomas wasn’t going to be making the cross-country trip to our Nation’s Capital.

He was a unanimous All-American selection after leading the nation in interceptions (eight), ran a mid-four 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine and was rated by nearly every draft “expert” as a second round pick.

In the fourth round, 68 picks after Amerson was taken, Thomas was packing his bags for Washington, D.C. It’s been a whirlwind last few months for Thomas, who called California home his entire life, but now that he has settled in all he wants to do is play.

“I want to play,” Thomas said.  “I’m fighting for a job right now, and if I am able to get that job, great. If not, I know I’ve been working my butt off. I will play any position on special teams to make an impact. I just want to help this team.”

Rookie Spotlight: Brandon Jenkins

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on linebacker Brandon Jenkins.

One of the more under-the-radar moves that the Washington Redskins made during the offseason was the selection of Florida State University linebacker Brandon Jenkins in the fifth round (162nd overall) of the NFL Draft.

Each year, fans flock to training camps across the country to see how rookies are translating to life at the NFL level. While watching the teams gel as a collective unit, they often keep a keen eye on late round rookies, hopeful that they have landed a stud.

For those of you who are coming to Richmond, make sure to pay close attention to Jenkins. After falling down the board simply due to an injury derailed final season at FSU, he wants to do what anyone in position would—hit somebody.

“First thing I wanted to do is just hit somebody,” Jenkins said about returning to the field full healthy. “It’s been that long.”

Rookie Spotlight: Baccari Rambo

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on safety Bacarri Rambo.

Despite being drafted in the sixth round of the draft this past April, safety Bacarri Rambo is already making a large impact on the Washington Redskins.

In the afternoon practice session yesterday, Rambo intercepted quarterback Kirk Cousins to “oohs” and “ahhs” by a record-breaking crowd for the first interception of training camp. Even though he hasn’t taken an NFL snap yet, Rambo showed the poise of a season veteran.

“I’m just trying to get out there and play and help the team as much as I can,” Rambo said. “That’s all.”

Making plays that require the perfectly timing and skill that he showed on first Redskins interception would certainly help the team in its pursuit of a fourth Lombardi Trophy. If he has the privilege of hosting the trophy in his first year, though, don’t expect him to consider his football career complete.

“If I get one my first year I’d be very excited,” Rambo said of a Super Bowl victory. “But I’m still gonna work hard like I don’t have one, because I’m not just trying to not only get one. I want lots of them.”

Rookie Spotlight: Jawan Jamison

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on running back Jawan Jamison.

This time last year, the Redskins Blog met up with this little-known guy by the name of Alfred Morris.

Despite a prominent career for the Florida Atlantic University Owls, No. 46 was an afterthought in starting running back considerations. Sure, head coach Mike Shanahan had the proven track record of being a late round running back’s best friend, but his luck had to run out eventually, right?

Nope.

Despite the fact that Morris’ is now the Redskins’ single-season rushing record holder,  seventh round selection Jawan Jamison believes that he can follow in No. 46’s footsteps and could even give his 1,613 rushing yard season a run for its money—or at the very least be the best rookie/backup running back in the National Football League.

“My goal is to try to win Rookie of the Year and try to get as close as I can to that rushing title,” Jamision said of his individual goals in his first season. “I’m hoping that I can come in and back up Alfred and get closer to that goal.”

Rookie Spotlight: Richard Crawford

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 6, 2012 – 1:50 pm

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on cornerback Richard Crawford.

Richard Crawford wants a championship, and he’ll do anything to get it.

That’s what the Redskins’ rookie cornerback said late last week when we caught up with him after a morning walk-through practice.

And Crawford — the team’s seventh-round selection out of SMU — has had a strong showing in training camp so far, showing just how bad he wants to claim that eventual title.

“I want to do whatever I can to help us with a championship this year,” Crawford said. “That’s my mindset. Coach Shanahan, when we talked about it before he drafted me, I told him that’s what I’m here to do.”

Rookie Spotlight: Tom Compton

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 4, 2012 – 8:52 am

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on offensive tackle Tom Compton.

Tom Compton has seen a few of his fellow offensive linemen battle through injuries as his first training camp gets underway.

But Compton — the Redskins’ sixth-round pick out of South Dakota — doesn’t think about when his number might be called to fill in a hole along the line.

That’s because he’s too busy thinking about improving each day. Worrying about his spot in the rotation, Compton said, is for the birds.

“Regardless of if guys go down or not, you always have the mindset that you’re just one or two plays away from stepping in,” Compton said this week after a morning walk-through practice at Redskins Park. “So you have to be preparing so well to be in the position that, whether guys go down or not, you focus on what you’re doing to make yourself the best you can be.”

Rookie Spotlight: Alfred Morris

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 3, 2012 – 10:44 am

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on running back Alfred Morris.

A majority of those currently on the Washington Redskins’ training camp roster are enjoying the luxury of carrying around an iPad playbook instead of the ultra-heavy, ultra-clunky traditional paper playbook that is contained within a large binder.

Not rookie running back Alfred Morris.

Though Morris loves the latest technology as much as the next man, the sixth-round pick out of Florida Atlantic said nothing beats the simple pen-and-paper approach.

“I like taking notes,” Morris said this week after a walk-through morning practice at Redskins Park. “Like going over a play, I like writing notes on that play — if we’re talking about a certain play — I like writing notes on that play so I can come back to it, so I know where it’s at and I can flip through and find it whenever I need a refresher.”

It’s that simple approach that has pushed Morris — sought more as a linebacker than a rusher out of high school — into the Redskins’ training camp rotation of running backs.

Rookie Spotlight: Adam Gettis

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 1, 2012 – 1:48 pm

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on guard Adam Gettis.

Washington Redskins’ rookie guard Adam Gettis first played organized football his freshman year in high school and developed into a two-star prospect not recruited to play by many big colleges.

Fast forward five years later, and Gettis is the fifth-round selection of the Redskins in April’s NFL Draft.

It’s been a whirlwind experience that even Gettis said he can’t believe sometimes.

“You don’t think it’s going to happen,” Gettis said Monday after the Redskins’ morning walk-through practice. “Being a two-star guy, you don’t think those guys are going to make it, but it’s all about work and opportunity and you have to take advantage of those types of things.”
