Redskins preseason Rookie Report:  Week One – part 2

1.  Ryan Grant, wide receiver

Ryan Grant had a good performance against the New England Patriots with 3 catches for 37 yards.  He showed his prowess as a route runner and also displayed excellent hands.  Grant was one of the stand outs at the Redskins training camp and his further development will ensure they have a deep and talented wide receiver unit.

2.  Lache Seastrunk, running back

Lache Seastrunk led the Redskins in rushing in the first preseason game with 63 yards on 12 carries.  Seastrunk showed off his speed and cutting ability in the open field and improved his chances to make the team with his performance.  However, Seaetrunk still needs to show he can be effective as a receiver and in blitz pick up.

3.  Ted Bolser, tight end

Ted Bolser started off the game slowly with a holding penalty but his performance picked up after than.  As he blocked well and then caught a seven yard touchdown pass from Colt McCoy in the third quarter.  Bolser still needs to continue to get better and show that he can sustain a high level of performance for the remainder of the preseason if he’s to make the team.

4.  Zach Hocker, kicker

Zach Hocker took the lead in the kicking competition with his performance against the Patriots as he showed a strong leg on kickoffs and accuracy as in kicking field goals.  He made both of his attempts and had a long of 39 yards.  While Kai Forbath had a mediocre performance.

5.  Silas Redd, running back

Redd ran hard against the Patriots and like Seastrunk improved his chances of making the team with a strong performance.  However, that hard running needs to continue for Redd as the competition at running back is extremely fierce right now.
