Redskins rookie camp Report – Ted Bolser, tight end - 6-5, 249
The Washington Redskins came into the offseason needing to add some depth at tight end. Mainly because second year star tight end Jordan Reed had injury problems last year. So the Redskins had to make a move to get another body at the position and so they drafted Ted Bolser in the seventh round of the draft.Bolser has had a few good moments in training camp catching the football and has shown that he has a skill set that he has some potential that could be developed for the future. He has good size and decent hands but needs to develop more as a blocker and needs to more reps to continue to improve overall.
However, special teams is one of the reasons that the Redskins drafted Bolser also, and that could be how he makes the team. But that will take good performances in the preseason. Also, as Redskins head coach Jay Gruden stated the games are a separate form of evaluation than practice. So it’s possible that Ted Bolser could shine at tight end in the preseason. We’ll just have to see.
