Here is a list counting down the Top 32 Washington Redskins of 2014 – No. 10
10. Ryan Kerrigan – outside linebacker
Age 25, 6-4, 260 pounds
Analysis: Ryan Kerrigan has been a model of consistency so far over his three season with the Redskins. He has amassed 24.5 five sacks averaging eight sacks a season, and he also plays well against the run, and has two interceptions on his career. Kerrigan combines with Brian Orakpo to give the Redskins one of the top tandems at outside linebacker in the NFL.However, it seems as solid as Kerrigan has been so far in his career, the prevailing thought is that he could be even better than he has been. It’s possible that Kerrigan has been held back from accomplishing more, as Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has insinuated that he could not be as aggressive as he would have liked due to Mike Shanahan’s conservative style.
So if the reigns could be loosened on Kerrigan to attack quarterbacks more in 2014, then he might be in store for his biggest season yet. Kerrigan has spoken himself of a desire to no longer be average, and to become a great player. Well it seems that Ryan Kerrigan is going to get him chance to prove he can do it.
