2012 Highlight: After watching some of Rambo’s film, he plays the you would expect a guy whose name is Rambo to play. His hard-hitting ability stands out the most, but he does not shy away from coverage and he is always going to try and take away the ball, whether it is an interception or forced fumble. His most impressive 2012 highlight was the sack he recorded against Florida. He flew by the Florida running back and made the quarterback pay for no one blocking him. It was not a crushing tackle, but it was efficient and quick introduction to the ground for the Florida quarterback. Below is his college highlight reel so you can get a sneak peak at this new Redskin.

2012 Lowlight: The lowlights for this standout safety are due mostly to his off the field issues, including drug suspensions. Many Redskins fans are familiar with marijuana related drug suspensions because of Fred Davis andTrent Williams, but those two have seemingly cleaned up their acts so Rambo may possibly be in a good situation with the Redskins. And because of his off the field issues, he fell to the 6th round of the draft. That could prove to be an enormous draft-day steal in the years to come.

What is coming in 2013: I’m confident Rambo will make an impact on the Redskins this season. He has some experience in college as a returner, and with Brandon Banks off the roster there will be competition for those snaps. I think he is more likely to make an impact at free safety. While no one really knows who will end up with the safety jobs for the Redskins, Rambo’s coverage skills, hard-hitting ability, and the possible chip on his shoulder from being a low round pick may help him earn the starting job. As long as Rambo does not have any drug issues or suspensions, I think the Redskins will have a problem keeping this safety off the field. I am looking forward to having that problem with one of our defensive backs for once.
