“I’m jacked. I’m really excited,” Smith told the radio station via 247sports.com while preparing to play in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. “Once I found out that obviously things in Kansas City were going in a different direction, I was pumped for the opportunity. When Washington came calling, I was hopeful that was a possible destination. I’m jacked that it worked out. They wanted me and the feeling was mutual.”
With Kendall Fuller gone, what does the cornerback depth chart look like? The Redskins promoting from within and having Josh Holsey and Fabian Moreau take over for the traded Fuller and Bashaud Breeland, who is likely to depart in free agency would be the ideal situation. But if they aren’t ready, the Redskins will have to hit the free agency market. So maybe Breeland stays.
I think that we can agree that any season short of the seven to nine wins they have had the last three seasons would be a disappointment. A return to the land of double-digit losses, which is where they were in five of the six seasons prior to winning the NFC East with a 9-7 record in 2015, would have fans restless at best, rebellious at worst. Swaths of FedEx Field seats that are empty or, worse, occupied by fans of the opposing team would be a common sight.
Starting Centers can be had this year
While it’s top-heavy with little depth, there are three centers in this year’s class that have plug-and-play skill sets and long-term starter upside that warrant selections in the top 50.
- Billy Price, Ohio State – A 50+ game starter, Price’s combination of play strength and mobility makes him a universal scheme fit.
Frank Ragnow, Arkansas – Ragnow’s functional strength makes him an ideal fit for a man-power blocking scheme. There are some technical improvements needed but Ragnow is a powerful finisher with great length.
