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

Nose Tackle

Right Defensive End

Phillip Daniels 

Ma'ake Kemoeatu 

Kedric Golston 

Adam Carriker 

Howard Green 

Vonnie Holliday 

 

Anthony Bryant

 

 


Other players in the mix include: Rob Jackson (6'4 269 lbs), Trey Jacobs (6'4 295), Greg Peterson (6'5 315 lbs), and Darrion Scott (6'3 289 lbs).  

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.
