The Washington Redskins looked to the recent NFL Draft and free agency to not only improve the talent level and size of their offensive line. Here is a look at the projected Depth Chart of the offensive line, post NFL Draft.
- Tyler Polumbus – Polumbus showed improvement last season but he stumbled down the stretch. He will have to perform at a high level to hold off Morgan Moses.
- Morgan Moses (rookie) – Moses has a lot of potential and he has the ability to become the starter at right tackle. It may just be a matter of time.
- Trent Williams – Williams has emerged as one of the top offensive tackles in the NFL, and at some point he might become the best.
- Morgan Moses – If Moses doesn’t win the starting right tackle job, he will more than likely emerge as the second option at left tackle as well.
- Tom Compton – Young tackle will try to push Moses and Polumbus for playing time.
- Chris Chester – Good run blocker but struggled in pass blocking last season. Chester will be on the hot seat, and it will take a great effort from him to remain the starter.
- Mike McGlynn - Has a chance to start, but might be better utilized as a utility guy across the line as he can also play center.
- Spencer Long (rookie) – The third round pick has good size and power, and obviously the Redskins like him, as they took him with a third round pick.
- Shawn Lauvao – Signed as a free agent to assume the right guard position. Bigger and more powerful blocker than Kory Lichtensteiger, and should match well next Trent Williams.
- Josh LeRibeus – Got into Mike Shanahan’s dog house for being overweight, but that might be good thing with Jay Gruden, as he likes his linemen big.
- Adam Gettis – Smaller guard better suited to zone blocking. .
- Kory Lichtensteiger – Makes the shift from left guard to center. Played well at left guard, but he may be an even better center than guard.
- Tevita Stevens - A young player trying to make the team.
