We’re into the thick of the offseason, and now, with the NFL Draft in the rear view mirror, the attention turns to Washington Redskins position battles.
The most advertised battle is at cornerback, where Quinton Dunbar, Fabian Moreau, and Orlando Scandrick will battle it out for the No. 2 cornerback slot beside Josh Norman, but there are many others strewn across the 90-man roster.
At wide receiver, the depth chart is set up front, with Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson, and Jamison Crowder locking down the first three slots. But behind them, there are a lot of moving pieces, and it’s tough to determine how it might settle by offseason’s end.

At running back, the Washington Redskins have a similar situation. Derrius Guice, with his natural talent, will more than likely be the Washington Redskins starting back by preseason, and Chris Thompson will undoubtedly compliment him as the team’s third-down back, provided that he can return to the field at one-hundred percent.
But behind those two, there are five backs wrestling for two spots, at the most. Robert Kelley and Samaje Perine have the most experience with the Washington Redskins, and Perine, in particular, seems to have a better chance, given his fourth-round draft status. But in the offseason, no one is truly safe, and at running back, the Washington Redskins have tough choices to make. Byron Marshall and Kapri Bibbs are intriguing holdovers from last season, and Martez Carter is the undrafted underdog story, part of a group that has a habit of proving people wrong.
How might these position battles shake out, and who are some players that shouldn’t be overlooked? In this episode of the Riggo’s Rag Podcast, Nathan Britton and I are joined by Jacob Camenker, who talks running backs, wide receivers, and cornerbacks.
There’s a lot of good insight in this one; Camenker has done in-depth pieces on Byron Marshall and Martez Carter, so there’s knowledge to gain from hearing him speak on those players. Aside from that, we touch on why Brian Quick has an edge on the competition, why Robert Davis has the potential to be a breakout star, why Quinton Dunbar should be the player on the inside lane in the cornerbacks competition, and so much more!

The Washington Redskins have a lot of questions to be answered before long, and the discussion is just getting started! Next week, we’ll have another podcast up, where we’ll continue with the roster battles theme, dabbling on tight ends, left guard, and the team’s newly revamped defensive line.
