Maybe carrying so many TE on the Redskins Roster can be a positive, if a TE can convert to a successful tackle
Over at NFP: Wes Bunting makes the following tag line: Will these rookie free agents make your team?
Every year, there are always one or two rookie free agents who come out of the blue, make good impressions in training camp and end up nailing down a spot on your favorite team’s roster. Here’s a look at this year’s top rookie free agents and a breakdown of players we think could end up sticking on each NFL team:
A physical in-line tight end who can carve out a niche in the run game but could ultimately make the move to offensive tackle in time.
Interesting, but what the line looks like at 53, including reserves maybe totally different than expected. Heyer could be out of a job, Rinehart out...Mini-camp will be most interesting to see who stays and who will no longer be a Redskin, the players and times are changing...
Good Height at 6-5 but will need to add some serious weight, listed as 264 on the Redskins Roster
A very intelligent person, who is also a solid leader for UCLA during 2009 season: a semifinalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy, college football's premier scholar-athlete award presented by the National Football Foundation, a semifinalist for a National Football Foundation Post-Graduate scholarship Named offensive winner of UCLA's N.N. Sugarman Award for Best Leadership and also earned the Jack R. Robinson Award for Highest Scholarship of a Senior Player
At his Pro day, he was looked at by most due to him being one of the top blocking tight ends in the draft,
Appears he may had already started to bulk up sources list him at 6-foot-4, 265-pounder
He bench pressed 225 pounds 25 times and turned in an 8-11 broad jump. His speed fit well with an athletic tackle for the ZBS, he ran a 4.8 to 4.9 range in the 40-yard dash.
Just something interesting about the team, while they finish mini-camp: And Happy Mothers Day to all the Mothers...
