    Thinking that Lanier will put up similar numbers in a backup role this season. He really improved a great deal in 2017 and made a name for himself.

    The Alabama boys are defensive ends as Boone mentioned and are highlighted in that post. Payne could see some time at DT.

    The Redskins defensive scheme doesn't really use a nose tackle in the classical sense, but they do line up in both the 3-4 and 4-3 alignments each game. DTs are going to play a greater role than in previous seasons.

    Appreciate it BB. I’m just worried that since our D has yet to run a conventional NT, we’ll be bottom dwellers in run & total D again.

    We’ve definitely gotten younger and hopefully more athletic on the line though and that’s a huge step.

    Due to the hybrid nature of the defense - switching many times in a game to a 3-4 base and a 4-3 base - the traditional NT role simply can't be defined and that is why the DTs are used.

    Tomsula mentioned yesterday that Ziggy is going back to DE (just as we thought earlier in the thread) and will not be out of position as a DT - unless the injury bug hits like it did last year.

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


    Greetings from BBQ to everyone here at BGO. We hope you are having a good week. Hello to everyone on social media. We’d love to have you as a member here and become a part of the family.

    Congratulations to the Washington Capitals on winning the Stanley Cup. Let’s hope the Redskins aren’t far behind with a Super Bowl trophy.

    OTAs are over and the final mini-camp is this week. 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 inside linebackers and later this week we will look at the outside linebackers. We’ll post an evaluation of each group for the next few weeks.

    Let’s get right to it!

    Inside Linebackers:
    Zach Brown
    He is the leading tackler from last season. He is a team leader. He is a reliable and steady presence. Zach Brown is ferocious against the run, but is a liability at times in the passing defense.

    Brown is the best inside backer on the team and is poised to have another great season.

    Mason Foster
    When Mason Foster was signed as a free agent from Tampa Bay, many pundits and experts thought he would be nothing more than a backup and primarily a special teams player.

    Foster will continue to start next to Brown and should have another solid season.

    Zach Vigil
    No one expected this to happen. Vigil was able to earn some playing time in the second half of 2017 due to injuries and made the most of it. He quickly developed into a quality backup.

    Vigil proved he belongs and his role could continue to expand.

    Josh Harvey-Clemons
    Harvey-Clemons continues to improve and he should force his way into the line-up as a quality hybrid player this season. He can drop back in coverage as needed to play the strike role.

    His talent is undeniable and while Harvey-Clemons is not a starter (yet), the role he plays will continue to increase.

    Martrell Spaight
    Spaight is a good special teams player and that has saved him in the past. Will it be enough this year? Stay tuned.

    Other Inside Linebackers
    Shaun Dion Hamilton is someone who could force Spaight off the roster if he has a good camp and can demonstrate special team skills. He could also end up on the injured reserve list.

    Jerod Fernandez, Vontae Diggs, and Pete Robertson are candidates for the practice squad.

    There is our latest look at roster positions this off-season. Later this week we will look at the outside linebackers.

    Have a great week.

    Hail To The Redskins!

    Greetings from BBQ to everyone here at BGO. We hope you are having a good week. Hello to everyone on social media. We’d love to have you as a member here and become a part of the family.

    Congratulations to the Washington Capitals on winning the Stanley Cup. Let’s hope the Redskins aren’t far behind with a Super Bowl trophy.

    OTAs, mini-camp, rookie camp, the draft, and free agency have passed into the history books. Training camp will be here in five weeks. We’ll continue to 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 outside linebackers and next week we will look at the cornerbacks and safeties. We’ll post an evaluation for the remainder of the roster over the next two weeks.

    Let’s get right to it!

    Outside Linebackers:
    Ryan Kerrigan
    He has 71.5 sacks over the last eight seasons and is not slowing down anytime soon. Kerrigan should continue to post impressive numbers and is likely to have another double digit sack season.

    Look for Kerrigan to have two touchdowns, twelve sacks, and 75 tackles (combined and solo).

    Preston Smith
    Smith should be able to post impressive numbers after major upgrades and improvements to an already good defensive line. He will be playing in a contract year and this likely provides the incentives to perform at a high level.

    Look for Smith to register nine sacks, three fumble recoveries, and seventy tackles (combined and solo).

    Ryan Anderson
    Anderson has already looked the part of an improved player in the off-season. He should be a solid backup to Kerrigan and will likely see a vast upgrade to his role in 2018.

    Pernell McPhee
    McPhee joins the Redskins this season as a designated pass rushing specialist. He should have a very good season and playing in a limited role may cut down significantly on his recent injury troubles.

    Other Inside Linebackers
    Alex McCalister is not likely to make the roster. Inside linebacker Pete Robertson could also see time on the outside and is a likely practice squad member.

    There is our latest look at roster positions this off-season. Next week we will look at the cornerbacks and safeties.

    Have a great weekend.

    Hail To The Redskins!
