Redskins 53-Man Survivor: Final

LAST 5 ON   

LAST 5 OFF 

Spencer Folau OT

Jim Molinaro OT

Molinaro hasn't impressed and has been injured as well.  Some veterans even question why he was even brought back to training camp this year.  Folau has experience and is more versatile, able to play 4 OL positions.  As such he gets the nod here.

Spencer Havner LB

Robert McCune LB

We know for sure that Marcus Washington, Lemar Marshall, Warrick Holdman, Rocky McIntosh, Jeff Posey and Khary Campbell are safe.  This leaves one other LB spot up for grabs - a battle between two players - Spencer Havner and Robert McCune.  Havner will make the team based on his preseason and practice form while McCune has struggled for consistency and of late has been injured.

Mike Espy WR

Ikechuku Ndukwe G

This is a battle of who takes the last offensive spot on the roster.  While most would point to having 9 OL players as a good policy, I think that if a better player is available you look hard at keeping him.  Espy has outshone any young OL on this team in training camp and the preseason games – both on offense and on ST's, and that in my book should put him in line to make the roster.  Both could find themselves on the practice squad if Williams insists on having 9 DL on the final roster.

Cedric Killings DT / Kedrick Golston DT      

Ryan Boschetti DT / Anthony Montgomery DT

The performances of Golston and Killings have played them onto the final roster ahead of Montgomery – who has been hampered by injury of late - and Boschetti.  If a ninth DL player is kept it would be Boschetti.  Montgomery – the teams fifth round pick in 2006 – is destined for the practice squad.

Vernon Fox S

Reed Doughty S

Williams values players who have NFL experience and the last few spots on the roster always go to good ST's players.  Recently signed S Vernon Fox has both these attributes.  He was special teams captain at Detroit last year and led the Lions in ST's tackles in 2005.  This will be enough to get the last DB spot and put Reed Doughty onto the practice squad.

 

THE FINAL PRACTICE SQUAD PREDICTION

LB Kevin Simon
DT Anthony Montgomery
OL Kili Lefotu
OL Jasper Harvey
LB Robert McCune
TE Buck Ortega
OL Ikechuku Ndukwe
S Reed Doughty
LB Philippe Gardent (NFL Europe)

All three young developing offensive linemen make the taxi squad, along with talented LB's McCune and Simon.  Ortega has shown enough in preseason to have on hand as the next available TE, while rookies Montgomery and Doughty just need more time to develop under Williams and his staff.  This is a VERY talented and promising practice squad group!
