5. Evan Royster, RB – Evan Royster enters his fourth season with the Redskins, and has shown flashes of being a good runner ever since he entered the league in 2011. He’s averaged 5.1 yards per carry over the three seasons. Roster has accounted 416 yards on 81 carries, and he’s tallied 2 touchdowns.
But most of those carries for Royster came in 2010 as a rookie when he rushed for 328 yards. And it appeared as though Royster might have a promising future ahead of him with the Redskins. But then they drafted Alfred Morris in 2012, and he quickly ascended to the top of the depth chart.
And with Morris firmly entrenched as the starter, Roy Helu, Jr. providing a solid backup option, and rookie Lache Seastrunk being drafted this season, Royster will need to have a great offseason if he wants his career with the Redskins to take off.
