Albert Haynesworth has moved on, so it's time for us to do so as well. With Albert likely out, here's how I see the current DL depth chart.
Left Defensive End
Right Defensive End
The first thing that comes to mind is; "Wow. Our D takes a big step back with Albert not in the lineup."
The Right side of the line is missing notable size, so that will be the likely attack spot for opposing offenses. Vonnie has experience, so he could see a lot of time with Kedric. Rob Jackson is more built for a LB in a 3-4. Several of these guys haven't played in the NFL for over 2 years and some of which are coming off major injuries (Carriker, Kemoeatu). What the Redskins OLine went through last year, I fear the defensive line may go through in 2010.
Full list of past injuries after the jump.
