    The Dline is looking to have a monstrous season - if they can all stay healthy. The group is quite young, very talented, and has plenty of depth. Just think where we were two seasons ago at this time. The commitment to the line of late has been great and sorely needed. Excited to see what they will do this year.

    Agree, and I think a lot of it also depends on how quickly Settle develops and how much he can contribute this year.
    Payne is NFL-ready but there seems to be questions on whether Settle is.
    But with or without an effective Settle in 2018, the additional presence of Payne alone, along with a healthy Allen and Ion, is sure to make a significant difference.

    How about this for a defensive slogan ?
    Opposing offenses will have to SETTLE FOR PAYNE.

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


    Greetings to all. Summer is continuing to bring the heat and training camp is less than three weeks away. Today we will evaluate players who could take a significant step forward this coming season and other players who could surprise us in 2018.

    These evaluations are highly subjective, but we will attempt to look into the future and see if these players can take the next step and have an impactful 2018 for the Redskins. Who will shine in 2018? Who will be playing for a new contract? Will there be any surprises in this group?

    Let’s get right to it.

    Stepping Forward In 2018

    Jeremy Sprinkle, TE
    Sprinkle is a lock to make the roster as the third tight end in 2018. He will need to take the next steps necessary to ensure his long term success with the Redskins. If another injury limits Jordan Reed, Sprinkle will need to confidently step into the backup role.
    BBQ’s Outlook: We think Sprinkle will have twenty-five receptions and two touchdowns this season.

    Samje Perine, RB
    Perine will likely be the primary backup to Derrius Guice. He will feel less pressure to step forward this season and it could actually help his production. Perine will need to be ready if Guice goes down with an injury.
    BBQ’s Outlook: Look for him to have 350 yards rushing and two touchdowns in 2018.

    Josh Doctson, WR
    Most fans and pundits realize Doctson essentially played his rookie season in 2017 and not the previous year. However, the time is now for the talented receiver to take the next step and produce. No more excuses.
    BBQ’s Outlook: Doctson should haul in fifty-five catches and have nine touchdowns.

    Chase Roullier, C
    Redskins coaches placed a lot of faith in Roullier late into the 2017 season and he did a respectable job. The Redskins have placed even more faith in Roullier’s abilities and is now the starter at center. He has a chance to start all sixteen games and prove that he can effectively call out the blocking assignments at the line of scrimmage
    BBQ’s Outlook: Roullier should have a decent season and cement his status as the starting center.

    Ziggy Hood, DE
    Hood had to play most of the season at tackle and now he has the opportunity to return to his more natural role – an end. He will be a backup and relied on to provide periodic relief to the starters. He did a good job at tackle, but is much better as an end.
    BBQ’s Outlook: Hood should end up with thirty tackles, one sack, and two forced fumbles.

    Pernell McPhee, OLB
    McPhee is almost the forgotten player who has never played a down for the Redskins. With so much focus elsewhere in the off-season it is easy to forget this key free agent signing. He will play the same role that Junior Galette did in 2017. Injury concerns are there, but McPhee will not be a starter or one who takes the majority of snaps.
    BBQ’s Outlook: As a backup to Preston Smith, McPhee should be able to register twenty-five tackles and two sacks this season.

    Stacy McGee, DT
    McGee quietly had a good season in 2017 and he needs to continue his steady influence on the defensive line in 2018. He is primarily a run stuffer and that role will be needed in a division that features Jay Ajayi, Saquon Barkley, and Ezekiel Elliott.
    BBQ’s Outlook: Look for McGee to have twenty-two tackles and be able to help collapse the pocket several times in 2018.

    Zach Vigil, ILB
    Vigil was nothing more than a camp body at this time last year, but he proved his worth late in the season. He could provide some quality minutes in a backup role for 2018. His tenacity and determination is a definite asset to the linebacker corps.
    BBQ’s Outlook: Vigil could end up with thirty tackles, one interception, and six pass deflections in 2018.

    Fabian Moreau, CB
    Don’t sleep on Moreau. Kendall Fuller had a lackluster first year and then he had a huge second season. Don’t be surprised if Moreau takes similar steps in 2018. Moreau could start on the outside, but he could play the slot as well.
    BBQ’s Outlook: Moreau could surprise and we are predicting four interceptions, twelve passes deflected, one sack, and twenty-eight tackles.

    Josh Harvey-Clemons
    Harvey-Clemons could be poised to have a breakout season as the strike safety/hybrid inside linebacker role that Su’a Cravens and Kyshoen Jarrett expected to fill for a decade. In a pass oriented league, those skills are sorely needed and Harvey-Clemons has the skillset to make it happen.
    BBQ’s Outlook: He could have an enormous breakout season with thirty-five tackles, two interceptions, nine passes deflected, two sacks, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery.

    There is a look at the players who could take significant steps forward this season and players who could surprise us in 2018. Soon, we will take a look at veterans who need to have a good training camp and preseason or risk not making the roster.

    See you as we go along.

    Hail To The Redskins!

    Has size, but very, very slow for a corner, and several off-the-field issues.

    I hear you.

    Wonder if they try to make him a hybrid S/LB combo to cover TEs?

    Possibly to accomplish what they originally envisioned Craven to do. At worst he’s ps fodder

    I thought that was the plan with Harvey-Clemons.

    Too bad VT couldn't give us a corner with Stroman's speed and Alexander's size, all wrapped up in one player.

    So, are there any DB's still left at Virginia Tech that Torian Gray has coached ?

    In his own words he says he is more of a safety and feels more comfortable playing there.

    Yes, he will likely be a safety. That is the position he played when Gray was the coach at VT. Alexander is a tad too slow to play corner in the NFL.

    Let's face it, behind Swearinger and Nicholson we don't have a helluva lot right now in terms of depth. Adding Alexander is a good move a year ahead of time. I would rather make this kind of move than sign a 32 year old safety late in the summer like Golston or Whitner that can't play anymore and is out there on name recognition alone.

    The time for that crap is over.

    That said, I am not against looking at a veteran at OG. I was not a fan of the interior depth to begin with, but with Kouandjio now out for the season, we look particularly exposed.

    Match that with the fact the 31 year old Lauvao was rated by PFF as one of the lowest rated guards when he started games for us and I think we still need to keep our eyes open for a value signing here before the end of the preseason.
