    • 2018 Tight Ends Assessment

      Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mock Drafts, Camps, Roster Predictions, 2018

      Greetings from BBQ to everyone here at BGO. We hope it has been a great week and hope you will have a pleasant holiday weekend. Please set aside some time to remember the fallen of our military in the United States on Monday. Memorial Day is a time to remember the sacrifices that many have made for our freedoms.

      Hello to everyone on social media. We’d love to have you as a member here and become a part of the family.

      The draft is history. Free Agency has all but dwindled down for now. OTAs and mini-camps are ongoing. Training camp will be here soon. We’ll cover it all and give everyone at BGO the best coverage possible.

      BBQ continues our off-season evaluations. We will examine the various positions and give an assessment. Today we feature the tight ends and next week it will be the guards and tackles. We’ll post an evaluation of each group for the next few weeks.

      Let’s get right to it!

      Tight Ends:
      Jordan Reed
      Questions galore. Can he stay healthy? Will he put up big numbers, if healthy? What kind of rapport can he establish with Alex Smith? Is this his last year in a Redskins uniform? Reed is the undisputed starter for now.

      There is no way to know the answer to these questions at this juncture. The hope is that Reed can regain his form and stay injury free. If he remains healthy, look for Reed to have fifty catches or more and at least five touchdowns.

      Vernon Davis
      Davis has become Mr. Reliable over the last couple of seasons and now he looks to re-establish a rapport with Alex Smith. Davis produced great numbers with Smith in San Francisco and would like to do the same once again.

      Davis will be the backup to Reed, but he will still see a fair amount of time. His knack for picking up huge chunks of yardage should continue. Davis could catch forty or more passes in 2018 and have four or more touchdowns.

      Jeremy Sprinkle
      Sprinkle will be on the roster of fifty-three. He will continue to learn and gain experience as a blocker, but could see some meaningful receptions as well. 2018 could be a stepping stone to greater success in the future.

      BBQ expects Sprinkle to have fifteen or more receptions and two or three touchdowns this season.

      Other Tight Ends
      Manasseh Garner and Matt Flanagan will not make the final roster cuts, but one of them could end up on the practice squad. If the Redskins are looking for a receiving tight end, it will be Garner. If the team is looking for a blocking tight end, it could be Flanagan.

      There is our latest look at roster positions this off-season. Next week we will look at the offensive line.

      Have a good weekend.

      Hail To The Redskins!
