Ranking the Redskins Talent by Position

New, comments
Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The 2017 Redskins have some talent across the board. Just how much talent you ask...well, that may be in the eye of the beholder.

Below, I give you my "fairly simple" rating scale where 10 is the best and 1 is the worst. I have rated all the Redskins starters (and a few others who get starter reps). As an extra special treat, I have added in ( ) the potential to which I feel these players can get to, or in some cases, fall to. These ratings are a combination of this season to date, and future rojections, with past performance taken into consideration for veteran players.

Rating Scale:

10 - Elite player at their position (top 3)

9 - Perrennial All-Pro player

8 - Pro Bowl Caliber player

7 - Solid starter with Pro Bowl potential

6 - Above average starter

5 - Average starter

4 - Below average starter

3 - Average reserve

2 - Below average reserve

1 - Shouldn’t be on an NFL roster
