Total Offensive Players: 41 players

There's not much surprise here.  Silas Redd and Lache Seastrunk are rookies and are sitting behind Royster and Thompson.  Royster could easily be passed by both of them, and he is definitely on the roster bubble.  The question here is how many RBs can the Redskins afford to keep on the roster, and if they keep 3 do they keep an injury-prone Chris Thompson who has looked good in camp, or a 6th round rookie who needs a lot of work.  Thompson has the edge right now.

Santana Moss is listed behind Garcon at WR1, but he is more likely the 5th or 6th WR on the depth chart and behind Roberts in the slot.  Hankerson looks like he will start the season on the PUP list, and the team will likely keep 6 WRs.

Morgan Moses is listed as the backup at Left Tackle, while Tom Compton is listed as the backup at Right Tackle.  They have been playing both positions, but Compton has gotten a lot of work at LT this year and last year.  If Tyler Polumbus holds onto the starting RT job, the Redskins have a big decision to make.  Do they keep 3 OTs and cut Compton and have a raw Moses as the swing tackle, or do they keep 4 OTs this year.

Josh LeRibeus is clearly ahead of Adam Gettis, and after losing a season due to his conditioning, appears ready to fight for a position on the team.

Total Defensive Players: 41

Not Listed: Stephen Bowen, LDE(PUP, knee), Jason Hatcher, RDE(PUP, knee)

Jarvis Jenkins is listed as the starter at RDE, but that will change once Hatcher returns to practice, hopefully next week.  The Redskins brought in two defensive ends within the last week(Jake McDonough and Jeremy Towns) due to Bowen and Hatcher's PUP status.

Chris Baker will likely start at LDE after a good performance replacing Bowen last year, and getting a new contract during the offseason.

Will Compton is listed ahead of Akeem Jordan, and John Keim speculated this morning that Jordan could be the odd man out at ILB.

Richard Crawford is listed as the 4th string LCB, but he is also listed as the 4th PR option.  Crawford is recovering from a significant knee injury and still has time to earn a spot on the team, but his special team's contributions will play a big part in his roster status.

Rambo is still listed as the backup at Free Safety, but that could change.  His tackling has been inconsistent at best during training camp.  He needs to make an impression on coaches early.

Total Special Teams Players: 12

Specialists: 5 Players

Nothing to see here.  The kicker competition won't be determined until the preseason games, but Hocker has been having a good camp.  Forbath has improved his kickoffs, but has missed some field goals during practices.

Robert Malone has a pretty clear edge at punter according to reports, and should be the only punter on the roster Week 1.

Andre Roberts has said he's open to handling both return jobs, but would prefer returning kickoffs

Santana Moss is a slight surprise as the first punt returner, but he has experience there, and they don't plan on having DeSean Jackson back there too often, if at all, this season.

Can Richard Crawford regain his role as Punt Returner?

How nice is it not seeing Josh Morgan's name listed for returns?
