Redskins post draft Depth Chart - Offensive Line

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.

Right tackle

  1. 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.
  2. 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.


Left tackle

  1. Trent Williams – Williams has emerged as one of the top offensive tackles in the NFL, and at some point he might become the best.
  2. 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.
  3. Tom Compton – Young tackle will try to push Moses and Polumbus for playing time.


Right guard

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.


Left guard

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Adam Gettis – Smaller guard better suited to zone blocking.  .



  1. 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.
  2. Tevita Stevens - A young player trying to make the team.
