Position Battles the Sequel: Right Tackle and WR
The Redskins will enter training camp in just over one month with several position battles worth keeping tabs on. Right tackle, strong side linebacker, wide receiver, quarterback...even running back have storylines worth watching.

Some battles beg the question whether the front office did enough to address the issues; others are worth watching simply to see whether there are going to be changes in players' roles.

In March, the competitions were evaluated on this blog. But after OTAs and some offseason moves, some of those outlooks have changed. We'll take another short look at some of those battles this week.

Today we'll go back over the two positions that have probably received the most attention so far on this blog, right tackle and wide receiver, and then we'll move into other positions tomorrow. If you have other position suggestions, comment away:


If the season opened today the starter would be: Stephon Heyer, a former undrafted free agent from Maryland who won the starting position last season only to lose it to Jon Jansen upon being injured. Heyer has shown flashes of starter potential, but is still very raw and struggled at times in the run game. He may be the answer this season for Washington, but whether he is a bonafide NFL starter and long-term answer at the position remains very much in doubt.

Said Zorn earlier this offseason of Heyer: "Heyer has really improved himself. He hasn't missed

Every article I read about the WR competition talks about Thomas taking over for ARE in the flanker position but yet I clearly remember him being drafted to play behind Santana in the split end position while Kelly was drafted with the idea of playing flanker. This was also reflected in the teams official depth chart last season with Thomas listed behind Moss and Kelly listed behind ARE.

Are writers just stuck on the fact that since Thomas was drafted higher he should move into the weaker position even that is playing out of position?
