The Top 32 Redskins of 2014:
Outside Linebacker, Washington Redskins
Jackson re-signed with the Redskins during the offseason after testing the free agent market, and this will be his seventh season with the team. Jackson has been a reliable backup, and has filled in as a starter when needed at outside linebacker. He’s very good in pass coverage, and poses a solid threat as a pass rusher. However, the Redskins have some young lions at the position in rookie Trent Murphy, and second year man Brandon Jenkins. So Jackson will need to have a great training camp and pre-season to hold off their challenge.
Defensive End, Washington Redskins
When he was drafted Jarvis Jenkins was expected to be a major catalyst in the Redskins 3-4 defense. However, he has yet to reach the expectations the team had for him, and now he’s in a fight for a roster spot and playing time. Jenkins showed some ability late last season, and if that trend continues he could push to start. But he needs to have a great training camp and preseason to solidify his spot on the team.
