Combine Look Back: The Class Of 2012

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 21, 2014 – 1:42 pm

Although 40-yard dashes, broad jumps and bench press reps don’t really give us an idea of a prospect’s viability as a football player, the physical tests can give a glimpse at a man’s raw athletic potential and ability to thrive in a competitive atmosphere. Over the course of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, the Redskins blog will take a look back at how Washington’s past three draft classes fared in Indianapolis.

London Fletcher converses with veteran Kedric Golston

Before he took the podium at Redskins Park and announced he was “99 percent” sure he would retire at the end of the 2013 season, 16-year veteran London Fletcher participated in an indoor practice.

The linebacker cracked jokes with Darryl Tapp during stretching and had a conversation with Kedric Golston while the special teams units drilled.

Here are your Wednesday practice snapshots. Read more »

Alfred Morris, Tom Compton and Troy Kropog Find Their Inner Wolf

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 6, 2013 – 3:28 pm

No one really remembers how it started, but we know it was an offensive lineman who brought the wolves into the Redskins locker room.

One of the big men came to work wearing the type of T-shirt you’d find in the gift shop at Rocky Mountain National Park, the type of shirt worn by your friend’s hippie mom who wore wool socks with Birkenstocks and made you take shots of wheat grass that one time.

Practice squad offensive lineman Troy Kropog saw an opportunity.Then the players found themountain.com.

Redskins–We Have A Bobsled Team

If you saw rather large men running down the streets with a bobsled this weekend in matching uniforms it may or may not have been the Washington Redskins. After all I’ve heard summer is the best time to practice for the Winter Olympics.

Sure it felt more like the middle of July than September, but as Derice, Sanka, Junior and Yul taught everyone in the mid 90’s, it doesn’t matter how high the mercury rises on the thermometer as long as you have your team.

So as the rest of the team wore various (and somewhat hideous) Hawaiian shirts to an island themed party, Josh LeRibeus, Adam Gettis, Kirk Cousins, Ryan Kerrigan and Tom Compton found some extremely large spandex body suits and paid homage to Cool Runnings.  Mon trust me when I say you’ll never see a pushcart team like this anywhere else.

Redskins Weigh In On Healthy Eating

With beach season fully underway, I’m sure most of you have considered techniques (possibly from the Internet) on getting fit and toned.

Sure you might have cut out those pesky carbs and decided chocolate cake isn’t for you right now, but when it comes down to it your diet may still be missing one key ingredient—fruit.

As a safe warning, please don’t tell Ryan Kerrigan you forgot to buy bananas at the grocery store again.

Combine Is Key For Redskins Scouts

Posted by Chris Herting on February 19, 2013 – 3:19 pm

morris_combine

Redskins Director of Player Personnel Scott Campbell is entering his 27th NFL season and his 13th with the Washington Redskins. Campbell originally joined the Redskins staff in 2001 as Director of College Scouting and in 2008 he was promoted to his current role as Director of Player Personnel.

As son of Marion Campbell, former head coach for the Atlanta Falcons and the defensive coordinator for the NFC Champion Philadelphia Eagles (1980), Scott’s NFL background is an extensive one to say the least, serving in numerous roles throughout his tenure in the league.

Fans sometimes look at the NFL season within the microscope of a five month season and yearly April draft. However, for Scott Campbell and the other team scouts, championships are won and/or lost in the time spent off of the gridiron. Read more »

Cousins, Compton Honor Sweetness

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 21, 2012 – 10:15 am

(Photo via @KirkCousins8 on Twitter)

The Washington Redskins’ offense had much to celebrate in the fourth quarter of its preseason game against the Chicago Bears on Saturday.

Exactly how they would celebrate scoring plays was apparently predetermined — at least for quarterback Kirk Cousins and offensive lineman Tom Compton.

Playing at Chicago’s Solider Field, the Redskins teammates decided to honor Bears’ great running back Walter Payton by trying to recreate his famous jumping hand slap with teammate Todd Bell after Payton broke the NFL’s all-time rushing record in 1984.

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 Offensive Lineman Gets Feet Wet

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 22, 2012 – 9:34 am

There’s something to be said about that first day of the season when you’re finally allowed to run drills against your teammates — and not go against tackling dummies.

Redskins’ rookie offensive tackle Tom Compton said he felt that freedom Monday in his first-ever round of organized team activites at Redskins Park.
