The Redskins added three offensive linemen to the fray this past weekend by grabbing Josh LeRibeus, Adam Gettis, and Tom Compton. We have all heard these three players' "stories" by now so the question is...who has the best chance of starting in 2012?
I don't expect any of these guys being penciled in Week 1, but you never know. Kory Lichtensteiger's health is still an unknown so LeReibeus and Gettis certainly have an opportunity to shoot up the depth charts. You have to think that beyond Lichtensteiger that Maurice Hurt and Chris Chester will still be in their way to a starting role also.
Compton, a FCS stud, has an interesting opportunity in front of him. We have two shaky starting tackles right now, for two very different reasons. Jammal Brown's health is almost always in question and Trent Williams sobriety is also a question mark. Compton will have to show himself as a more capable back up than Willie Smith, James Lee, Tyler Polumbus, and others this preseason.
The good thing is the Redskins have a lot of youthful developmental opportunities this offseason. Hopefully more than one of these prospects will flourish in the burgundy and gold.
