5.  Ryan Grant, WR - 6-0, 197 – The Redskins rookie wide receiver was drafted in the fifth round this year.  And considering the Redskins didn’t really have a pressing need at the position having signed free agents DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts, then that suggests they really like Grant, and he will be given every chance to make the team.  With the top three spots filled with Pierre Garcon, Jackson, and Roberts, Grant will compete against Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson, and Aldrick Robinson for the remaining spots at wide receiver.

    Ryan Grant was selected in round 5 of the 2014 NFL draft.

    In round 4, the Redskins selected Bashard Breeland.

      You are correct sir. Breeland could be a sleeper as well. It will be interesting to see how he looks in the preseason.

    Out of Chase, Phillip, and Crawford if we could just get 2 of them to contribute our secondary would be in better shape. I think Crawford can definitely start in nickel situations and proved he can play. Jenkins would be a great guy to rotate if he can develop a bit more and stay healthy

      Both Minnifield and Crawford have shown they have potential. And the competition should be fierce between them as they are probably fighting over the same roster spot along with Biggers. With reports of Jenkins showing improvement, his performance in preseason will be something to watch.
