The media caught up with a lot of Redskins today in the aftermath of the loss in Carolina. See what…
Ranking The Redskins: 21-30
30. Kedric Golston, defensive tackle—He had something of a sophomore slump last year, losing the starting job he claimed as a rookie in 2006. It looks like he has taken the first-team spot back from Anthony Montgomery, but he'll have to do a better job of holding his ground in the middle in order to keep it.
29. Durant Brooks, punter—Right now he's the favorite to beat out Derrick Frost for the punting job but he will be a rookie and he will have his struggles.
28. Pete Kendall, right guard—Kendall is about at the end of a good NFL career, look for Chad Reinhardt to hold down this spot next season.
27. Demetric Evans, rotational defensive lineman—He can play end or tackle and his versatility should make him the first man off the bench.
26. Rocky McIntosh, linebacker—After the first half of last season, some were talking about a Pro Bowl berth for McIntosh. Even before his season-ending knee injury, that talk had gone away. We need to see a full season out of Rocky before handing out any more accolades.
25. Jon Jansen, right offensive tackle—It would be great to be able to rank him higher. I don't necessarily doubt Joe Bugel when he says that Jansen is having a great camp, but it would be nice to see the fruits of that camp on the field. So far, that hasn't happened.
24. Reed Doughty, safety—He's a heady player who has underrated athletic ability. It will be interesting to see what effect being the starter all the way through OTA's and training camp will have on his game.
23. James Thrash, third wide receiver—Every training camp since he's been back with the Redskins there has been talk of getting Thrash more involved with the offense. Every season, that talk turns out to be just talk as he excels on special teams and catches a few passes here and there. We'll see if that expanded role will come to fruition in Jim Zorn's offense.
22. Antwaan Randle El, wide receiver—ARE can't quite seem to have a breakout season, or even a breakout month. It would help if he stopped all of the dancing on punt returns.
21. Carlos Rogers, cornerback—His play was competent last year until the knee injury ended his year. Rogers' challenge is to continue to improve while keeping himself off of the injury list.
