Part Two: A ranking of the top dozen Redskins, based on their 2005 performance potential:
Pick 'Em: Ranking the Redskins
24—MLB Lemar Marshall: This is due primarily to the fact that he's never taken a snap at this position in his NFL life.
23—TE Robert Royal: Many of Gibbs' tight ends didn't catch many passes in the coach's first go-around here but at least they blocked someone. Royal has displayed a knack for doing neither.
23—RG Derrick Dockery: His play leveled off at the inconsistent level it was at during his rookie year.
21—PK John Hall: Injuries kept him out of half of the games last season and he was just one for four from beyond 40 yards when he did play. He could be on the rapid descent downhill that kickers often experience.
20—DT Joe Salave'a: A nice story, a good find, a mediocre starter.
19—DE Renaldo Wynn: He's pretty consistent, but can you name a single play he's made in three seasons starting all but one game for the Redskins?
18--DE Phillip Daniels: Missing much of last season due to injury puts him lower than his play in his limited time last year would otherwise dictate.
17--CB Walt Harris: A replacement-level starting CB. The ranking for this position will not change much when Carlos Rogers, talented but a rookie, takes over sometime during the season.
16—S Matt Bowen: Another player whose ranking is negatively impacted by an injury suffered last year. He' either headed to Hawaii or the waiver wire in 2006.
15—WR Taylor Jacobs: The assumption here is, of course, that Taylor will win the starting job and David Patten will be the third receiver. Taylor's unproven, but his potential pushes up his value.
14—QB Patrick Ramsey: He could have a career year in '05 and still be firmly in the middle of the pack of NFL quarterbacks.
13—LB LaVar Arrington: He's having trouble recovering from what was supposed to be a minor knee injury suffered early last year and, if he overcomes that, he'll be playing in his first full season in Gregg Williams' defense.
