Here is a list counting down the Top 32 Washington Redskins of 2014 – No. 20
20. Tyler Polumbus – right tackle
Age 29, 6-8, 305 pounds
Analysis: Tyler Polumbus has been the starter at right tackle for the Redskins the past two seasons. His tall frame and long arms are good assets to have when it comes to pass protection. For a man as tall as he is at 6’8, he’s got good agility, and he fits in nicely into the Redskins successful zone read running attack.Polumbus started out the 2013 season playing very well, especially in run blocking. He held his own as a pass blocker also, and seemed to be solidifying the right tackle spot across from Trent Williams for the foreseeable future. However, Polumbus began to struggle in pass protection late in the season.
Justin Tuck of the New York Giants and Ahmad Brooks of the San Francisco 49ers had dominant performances against Polumbus in weeks 12 and 13, and it became clear that even though Polumbus had a solid season up to that point, the Redskins might need to look into an upgrade at right tackle.
The Redskins drafted Morgan Moses in the third round of the draft, but it seems he still has some work to before he’s ready to start. So for now Tyler Polumbus still has a chance to prove he’s the man at right tackle for the present and the future.
