    Default Secret Superstar: Perry Riley

    Thought it was a good positive read for the duldrums of cruising northbound through the chesapeake bay today. Enjoy.

    Secret Superstar: Perry Riley, LB, Washington Redskins
    June 9th, 2012 | Author: Trey Cunningham
    In 2010, during his first NFL draft as the head coach of the Washington Redskins, Mike Shanahan drafted LSU Tiger Perry Riley in the fourth round with the 103rd overall pick. As a true freshman on the 2007 National Championship team, Riley saw limited action, but registered two solo tackles in the BCS title game against Ohio State. However, Riley went on to become a highly productive and durable linebacker in Les Miles’ SEC defense. He was a tackling machine in his two seasons as a starter (2008-2009), was named Defensive MVP of a 38-3 win in the 2008 Chick-fil-A Bowl and was a finalist for the Butkus Award that same year.
    One of the reasons Shanahan went searching for a linebacker in the middle rounds of the 2010 draft was the poor play of 2006 draftee Rocky McIntosh. Drafted early in the second round with the 35th overall pick, McIntosh never lived up to that high selection. Despite working alongside the ageless London Fletcher since we began watching every play of every game in 2008, McIntosh hasn’t graded positively overall in any season–2009’s -2.4 grading is his career high. When the Shanahan regime implemented a 3-4 defense, McIntosh continued to be a liability. He struggled in every aspect of his game and ended the 2010 season with a -12.7 overall grade.
    The plan was for Riley to take over from McIntosh and start alongside Fletcher in 2011, but the lockout-shortened offseason helped prevent the former Tiger from being ready once the season arrived. Given eight games to start in 2011, McIntosh continued to be a weak link in the Washington defense (he’d accumulated a -9.4 grade overall at that point), paving the way for the Redskins’ Secret Superstar to take over exactly halfway through the season. He would not disappoint.
