      Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2019

      Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land and guests from social media – we hope you become a member here.

      BBQ continues a process of player evaluations and the focus today centers on the undrafted free agents. In the coming days and weeks, we will also evaluate newly acquired free agents and current veterans (by position). We have several players to look at today.

      These evaluations are highly subjective, but we will attempt to look into the future and see what kind of impact each player will have with the Redskins. Will there be any long term starters? Will there be players who provide depth? Who will be a practice squad hero? Who will have a short career in football? Who will have memories of lasting one summer in the NFL?

      Upcoming Dates:
      - Days until OTAs: 3
      - Days until mandatory mini-camp: 18
      - Days until the first NFL preseason game: 76
      - Days until the 2019 Regular Season Opener: 111

      Let’s get right to it.

      Deion Harris, CB/FS, North Dakota
      At 6-3, 200 Harris is an imposing figure at corner and free safety. He has a chance at making the roster of fifty-three, but probably more as a FS. At the very least, he is a strong candidate for the practice squad.

      Ryan Bee, DL, Marshall
      Ryan Bee is facing a crowded situation on the defensive line, but at 6-7, 285 he is an interesting prospect. He had a solid career at Marshall and while the numbers may not be in his favor, the future could still look good for him. A likely candidate for the practice squad, but any number of injuries to front line starters could give Bee an opportunity.

      Andrew Ankrah, Edge/OLB, James Madison
      Ankrah was a stud for the Orlando Apollos of the now defunct AAF. He will face an uphill battle to make the roster, but his performances with the Apollos could point to a spot on the practice squad. Ankrah attended NFL several mini camps over the last couple of years, but he never signed with a team. He now has a shot and must take advantage of this opportunity.

      B.J. Blunt, ILB, McNeese St.
      As another small college prospect who thrived against lesser competition, Blunt could surprise at the next level. He will need a year on the practice squad, but could push for a roster spot in 2020. Excellent size for an ILB and possesses the intangibles to succeed. He will need to become a special teams standout as well.

      JoJo McIntosh, FS, Washington
      If you are going to focus on one player amongst the UDFAs to follow, watch this young man. He has a realistic shot at making the roster and should produce a serious push to be on the team in September. At the very least, McIntosh could force Troy Apke to take notice. Even if he is not on the roster of fifty-three, McIntosh will likely be on the practice squad.

      Steven Sims, WR, Kansas
      There has been some hype from various pundits regarding Sims (yes, another UDFA with the last name of Sims), but he generated little in the way of headlines. Kansas is a porous program and that obscured his name even further. He is short in stature and slender, but did produce a fairly respectable college career. Sims still faces an uphill battle, but he may find a place on the practice squad.

      Jerald Foster, OG, Nebraska
      Foster certainly looks the part with his prototypical size, but he faces an uphill battle. This Cornhusker will need to improve considerably if he wants to make the practice squad.

      Jonathan Bonner, DE, Notre Dame
      Like Foster, Bonner certainly looks the part with his prototypical size, but he faces an uphill battle as well. Bonner will need to improve considerably if he wants to make the practice squad.

      Chidi Okeke, OT, Tennessee St.
      Okeke has an outside chance of making the roster, but he will have several players ahead of him on the depth chart. The practice squad is his likely destination this fall.

      Austin Maloata, DeMarquis Gates, Craig Reynolds, Juwann Bushell-Beatty, T.J. Rahming
      Camp bodies. Practice sleds. Pad and helmet carriers. Gatorade bottle providers. Making the practice squad will be a struggle. The Arena League is hiring.

      In Conclusion
      There is our second off-season analysis of the current roster. We are in the very early stages of trying to figure out who will be on the roster of fifty-three. We will have reports, analyses, roster predictions, coverage of the various camps/OTAs, the remainder of free agency, and any Redskins news. See you as we go along.
