25.  Tracy Porter - cornerback

Age 27, 5-11, 188 pounds

Analysis: The Redskins signed Tracy Porter as a free agent in the offseason.  Porter was a starter at cornerback last season for the Oakland Raiders, and is known for his penchant of making big plays in big games, especially during his time with the New Orleans Saints.  Porter will be the third cornerback for the Redskins behind DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson, and will more than likely cover the opposing teams’ slot receiver.

    I’m very interested to see if Chester can rebound from last years disappointment. I saw an analysis of him, and it actually didn’t come out as bad as I thought it would.

    One thing to make note of is how RG3 didn’t make quick decisions last year and didn’t have the same mobility he had in 2012.

    This, really affected the interior of our OL on pass blocking. If you watch the film, it was only vs Pro Bowl DT’s that they had problems like Hatcher & Tuck. Well Hatcher plays for us and Tuck plays for the Raiders now, so that’s a positive for our interior OL.

    I can’t predict Chester will rebound and pass block better, but it wouldn’t shock me that he shows up bigger and stronger in 2014, as will Kory L & Gettis. If these 3 are bigger and stronger, then they should make the team and Chester has a good chance of remaining a starter, as does Kory L as a

    In the end it really all comes down to how RG3 has developed at reading defense and how much of his mobility is back after last year. If Rg3 is better, the OL (especially the interior OL) won’t give up as many sacks.

      Yes, Hatcher and Tuck are gone, but there will be others who will step up. I agree that other things need to happen to improve pass protection than just improvement from the linemen, but there are going to be games when the interior O-line will need to hold on to their blocks better as well. It can’t all be on RGIII, because the team will be passing more than the past few seasons.

      • Adam Banig

        Yep, I 100% agree. I was just laying out those two factors as well. We could see our interior OL look better even if Chester & Kory L are starting in 2014 based off of those two things and them getting bigger and stronger this offseason

        • Maurice Barksdale

          I hope they do improve. However, I’m still glad there will be other options to turn to in case they don’t. Especially in Chester’s case.
