Redskins rookies contend for jobs
Linebacker Trent Murphy, offensive lineman Morgan Moses and cornerback Bashaud Breeland are all near certainties to be on this year's roster, which will create competition from now until cut day at the end of training camp.
Here are J.J. Watt Womens Jersey the positions where the Redskins may have to make tough decisions:
Right tackle: Moses, a standout at Virginia, represents strong value for the Redskins as a third round pick. Whether he'll be ready to claim the starting spot in Week 1 is uncertain, and will affect which player gets bumped off the J.J. Watt Youth Jersey roster.
The position has been held down by Tyler Polumbus, texansofficialproshop.com/Nike-Brian-Cushing-Jersey.html who has drawn the ire of fans for his inconsistent play but has represented Washington's best option so far.
He's been pushed by Tom Compton, a sixth round draft pick out of South Dakota who was seen as a potential high upside player.
Compton's development time ran out Friday night, though. Entering year three, he'll have to prove he's capable of playing at the same level as Polumbus, or there won't be room for him on the final roster.
Running back: Chris Thompson was drafted last year in part because of his explosive speed and big play capability.
That's exactly what this year's sixth round selection, Lache Seastrunk of Baylor, brings to the table.
With Alfred Morris and Roy Helu holding down roster spots, the difference maker for Seastrunk and Thompson may be special teams if one of them emerges as a viable kick returner, he'll make a strong case for landing the roster spot.
Outside linebacker: The addition of Stanford's Trent Murphy is bad news for last year's drafted outside linebacker, Brandon Jenkins.
Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo are solidified as starters, and Jadeveon Clowney Authentic Jersey Rob Jackson has held down the backup spot.
Jenkins was used occasionally in third down situations with both Kerrigan and Orakpo still on the field, which is likely what general manager Bruce Allen has in mind for Murphy.
Jenkins would almost certainly be picked up by another team if he were released, but the numbers may force Allen's hand at this position.
Wide receiver: Uncertainty reigns here, particularly with the selection of Tulane's Ryan Grant in the fifth round. He'll be gunning for Leonard Hankerson and Aldrick Robinson, though all fill slightly different roles.
Hankerson is coming back from an ACL injury, which means he could open the season on texansofficialproshop.com/Nike-Arian-Foster-Jersey.html injured reserve.
Undrafted free agent Cody Hoffman will also make a case for playing time, though new coach Jay Gruden will first have to decide how many roster spots he wants to use for pass catchers.
Cornerback: Last year's training camp duel between Richard Crawford and Chase Minnifield ended with Minnifield exiled to the practice squad.
This will be his second full training camp (he missed 2012 with injury), and the Virginia grad will face an uphill climb onto the roster with Clemson's Bashaud Breeland and free agent signee Tracy Porter joining the fight for playing time.
Crawford was able to make his mark on special teams, an area where Minnifield wasn't used much under coach Mike Shanahan.
New coach Jay Gruden has made it clear special teams will be an emphasis. If Minnifield can find a role there, it will increase his chances of catching on.
