Washington Redskins: Top 10 Prospects

It is done.


The 1st Round Pick
Jul 16, 2009

Drafting a safety in the top-ten of the NFL Draft isn’t a common theme, but it has happened a handful of times this decade. And, when the Washington Redskins selected LaRon Landry with the sixth pick in 2007, they envisioned a decade of greatness in their secondary by pairing Landry with another former top-ten selection Sean Taylor. Landry and Taylor were going to revolutionize the safety position together and had gotten off to a tremendous start in the early going. But, the untimely death of Taylor ended the dreams of eventual glory together and abruptly ruined a creation destined for the unimaginable.

Landry has been durable since entering the league, but consistency will be key this season.

Without Taylor, Landry has been good, and there’s no question he’s the No. 1 prospect in the organization, but he hasn’t fully lived up to the expectations just yet. It was obvious while Landry was playing with Taylor he looked more confident and showcased a much more physical presence. He’s been durable so far in his young career and has started every game since entering the league. As a rookie, Landry was all over the field and was quick to the point of attack; he finished with 95 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Last season, Landry had a down year statistically and was susceptible to giving up big plays. He recorded just 65 tackles and a half a sack, but he did manage to collect two interceptions, which showed off his playmaking skills. Landry’s ball skills have been questionable since he was at LSU, as he was known more for his ability to layout the opposition. In the NFL, physicality is needed, but being able to cover is crucial. Landry has shown improvement in his coverage skills and has the talent to be one of the top safeties in the league. Expect Landry to be a breakout star this season and become the playmaker the Redskins need him to be on defense

It breaks my heart that only one OL makes our top-10 prospect list.

With a rotating door at SS Landry had to worry about the entire backfield too much. As Horton took control of the position Landry started to look and play a little better IMO but Horton had his ups and downs too. This year SS will still be in flux a little as Horton will have to prove he can handle it permanently while the coaches will be working in Moore and Doughty quite a bit... So I wouldn't expect much fro the get go but I think this unit should be a real threat by midseason! At least I hope they are!
