Among the Washington Redskins newcomers who were on the field Saturday at Redskins Park for the team's rookie minicamp, tackle Morgan Moses appears to have the best chance to win a starting job for the 2014 season. He could vie with incumbent starter Tyler Polumbus in training camp for the right tackle spot.
A look at how the 2nd half of the Redskins schedule fared in the draft this year and how it will impact their match-ups.
Gruden has a noticeably different coaching style from predecessor Mike Shanahan. Shanahan was more of an overseer during practices, roaming the middle of the field during those sessions and interacting little. Gruden, meanwhile, was more hands-on. Offensive coordinator Sean McVay led the unit, but Gruden frequently jumped in to instruct, talk to players, or help lead drills.
G Spencer Long can play all three interior line positions but he'd prefer to just go hit somebody to having to deal with getting the snap to the quarterback. ""I like guard a little better; I'd rather just not have a ball in my hand," he told me. "But I like the mental game of center, making the calls, that's pretty fun."
The mailbag is back, after a one-week hiatus because of a little event last weekend. So we're back to a range of questions: Keenan Robinson, how rookies such as Lache Seastrunk fit in -- and who might he bump off the roster.

A few observations from the Redskins rookie minicamp Saturday morning. Keep in mind: This was our first chance to see the rookies. Their heads are swimming with new knowledge. That serves as a warning: Take these for what they're worth. Now, having said that...
To make room, and stay at the maximum 90 players, the Redskins waived Gumbs, nose tackle Chris Davenport, tight end Kevin Perry and quarterback Tommy Rees. Gumbs appeared in eight games, starting one, for Washington last season. He was a hard hitter who contributed mostly on special teams. Gumbs was an undrafted free agent in 2012 who signed with Washington right before training camp last summer.
