The Tight End depth chart has many interesting names on it. Fred Davis is an extremely talented receiver and is our number one tight end. But his off the field issues make many believe that he is not a long-term solution that can be counted on in the long run. Logan Paulsen was a very effective starter while Davis was injured. Paulsen was the open receiver on the spectacular 4th and 10 play against the Giants early in the season. Robert Griffin III is certainly comfortable with him in the lineup. Niles Paul is a converted tight end from wide receiver and was also effective in his playing time, but he is likely not going to be able to overtake the number one tight end spot.
The intrigue at this position comes in with the Redskins 3rd round pick, Jordan Reed from Florida. Reed draws comparisons to a former Florida Joker Tight End, Aaron Hernandez. It unclear how the Redskins plan on using Reed, but his ability as a pass catcher could cut into the other tight ends playing time or their starts. Who do you think will be starting at tight end week 1? Will it be everyone’s favorite sound bite guy in the media, Fred Davis? Will the reliable Paulson or the young Reed take over as the starter?
