Who Will be the Redskins MVP in 2015?

New, comments

A lot of new faces at a lot of new places should lead to a very interesting season for the 2015 Washington Redskins. I use the word interesting here, because I don't know how "good" of a season it will be. I don't know if it will be a "fun" season. I don't know if it will be a "successful", or a "disaster" season. Interesting, however, seems to be the one word that should hold true.

Whatever the results, there should be a few players who rise above the others, and take their play to a whole other level. Below is a list of candidates for Redskins 2015 MVP.

Robert Griffin III: We all see the potential. Now, it's just a matter of the young signal caller staying healthy, and putting together the type of season we all know he's capable of producing. I wrote an article yesterday about how the coaches need to let Robert run, and I believe this can be a huge advantage for the fourth year pro.

Alfred Morris: Morris broke out his rookie season, but has yet to duplicate those numbers. His production has gone down the past two seasons. With a revamped offensive line, and a running game that will have more aspects of power blocking, Morris should be able to thrive once again. If Griffin becomes a running threat again, that will only help the young back. Rookie Matt Jones could threaten to take some carries away from Morris, so that will be a situation worth monitoring.

DeSean Jackson: The games' biggest deep threat is poised for another successful season in D.C. Jackson is the one player on this offense that scares opposing defensive coordinators, and he must be accounted for on every play.

Niles Paul: We haven't had impact from the tight end position in years, so it will be interesting to see if Paul can put those wide receiver skills to good use at the tight end position. But, this is not the only reason Paul is on this list. His ability to contribute on special teams is invaluable. He's the consummate team player, and already stands as one of the most valuable Redskins.

Ryan Kerrigan: Kerrigan continues to improve each season. He took his game to another level last season, and if he keeps getting better he will be recognized as one of the best pass rushers in the entire NFL.

Stephen Paea: It has been a while since we've had an impact interior defensive linemen. Paea offers great scheme versatility, a good interior pass rush, and he's still young.

Keenan Robinson: The athletic linebacker is entering his second season as a full-time starter. The injury bug has bitten the youngster, but when healthy, he's a dynamic presence on this defense.

Chris Culliver: Culliver came over as a free agent from San Francisco this offseason, and will be an immediate starter in a secondary that has struggled recently. He has the skills to be one of the league's best.
