Three Redskins tryout players who could earn 90-man roster spots
By Ian Cummings
No. 1 – North Carolina State OG Terronne Prescod
There are some other intriguing options at guard in this tryout class. Sami Kassem was a longtime starter for the Toledo Rockets at right guard. Western Michigan’s Odell Miller actually moved to tight end for the latter part of his collegiate career, so he might have an intriguing combination of size and mobility to try out on the interior. And there’s Toby Weathersby, who helped open holes for current Redskins running back Derrius Guice while the two were still at LSU.
When it comes to complete resumes, however, North Carolina State’s Terronne Prescod transcends the group.
Prescod was considered a draftable prospect in some circles in the lead-up to the 2019 NFL Draft. While he has natural restrictions to his mobility that he’ll need to work around to have a shot at sticking, his size (6-foot-5, 331) is very striking, and he possesses impressive power as a run blocker.
Prescod’s lateral hinderances show up more in pass protection, but even there, he was more than adequate as a starter in 2018. Per Pro Football Focus, he did not allow a sack or a pressure in over 360 pass blocking snaps.
It’s hard to expect that success rate to transfer to the NFL, where defensive ends are bigger, faster, and more refined. But Prescod has the traits to potentially serve as good depth on the interior for the Redskins, and even after drafting two interior linemen, they could use another player to solidify their buffer. In close, tight-spaced situations, Prescod has the power to be a force.
