S Tre Boston Visited the Redskins Today

More information about visits to the Redskins are coming out, this time a Safety tweets about his time with the team.

The Redskins had another defensive player at Redskins Park for a visit today.  Strong Safety Tre Boston from UNC tweeted that he had met with the Redskins coaching staff today.  Boston is a late round draft prospect, and a former corner who will need time to develop as a safety at the next level.  In his 4 years at UNC, Boston has 170 tackles, 13 INTs, 28 Passes Defended, and 3 Forced Fumbles.

The Redskins signed another safety today, the 7th one on the roster at this point.  Several safeties on the roster are depth/special teams players and/or signed for 1 year deals.  Also 2nd year players Bacarri Rambo and Phillip Thomas will be given their opportunity to earn playing time this season.  Will the Redskins draft another safety who needs time to develop, or wait until next year to see what they have in Thomas and Rambo?

Hogs Haven Draft Profile

CBS Sports Analysis:

STRENGTHS: Looks the part of an NFL safety with a chiseled physique and good overall athleticism. Highly physical defender who attacks the line of scrimmage in run support, demonstrating aggressive hands and impressive upper body strength to take on and shed blocks, as well as impressive closing speed and the willingness to throw his body into the pile. Fluid athlete who accelerates smoothly. Times his leaps well to highpoint 50-50 balls, showing strong hands to pluck and secure quickly. Former cornerback who could just be scratching the surface of his potential.

WEAKNESSES: Isn't the some of his parts due to the fact that he takes false steps. Doesn't trust what he sees and instead bounces back and forth indecisively, putting him in tough position to make plays on the ball. Comes in out of control in run support, at times, leaving cut-back lanes for savvy runners to exploit.
