The Top 32 Redskins of 2014: 12. David Amerson

Here is a list counting down the Top 32 Washington Redskins of 2014 – No. 12

12.  David Amerson – cornerback

Age 22, 6-1, 205 pounds

Analysis: Redskins second year man David Amerson is expected to step into the starting lineup this season opposite DeAngelo Hall at cornerback.  The Redskins did not re-sign last years starter Josh Wilson.  But even if they had re-signed Wilson, it’s more than likely that Amerson still would have been the favorite to be the starter.

Amerson had a solid rookie season for the Redskins, and he showed some potential not only in pass coverage, but also against the run.  Amerson is by far the Redskins biggest cornerback, and reports suggest that he’s gotten even bigger and stronger over the course of the offseason.

The added size and strength should enable Amerson to play a more physical style of football at corner.  And this will come in handy especially with emergence of so many  big wide receivers in the NFL.  Teams need to add more size at corner in order to combat them.  So if Amerson’s rookie season is any indication of his development, then season two should be a very good one for him.
