Washington Redskins Unheralded Players: DE Cameron Malveaux
By Ian Cummings
Some Unheralded Players spend years trying to break through at the NFL level, only to linger in obscurity. Redskins defensive end Cameron Malveaux is dangerously close to such a fate.
The defensive line might be the strongest unit on the Washington Redskins‘ roster. With four first-round picks across the front, the Redskins are stocked with some of the most talented players that the game of football has to offer.
On the edges, Chase Young and Montez Sweat constitute a terrifying athletic duo, and on the interior, the rotation of Jonathan Allen, Matt Ioannidis, and Daron Payne has a chance to be one of the best in the NFL in due time. Even in the wings, Washington has steely veteran Ryan Kerrigan and young gun Tim Settle waiting. If there was ever a position that could be set in stone this early, it would be defensive line.
That’s what makes Cameron Malveaux’s coming task that much more challenging.
Malveaux, now with his fourth team in three seasons, was given a chance by the Redskins in December, and was kept after Ron Rivera’s initial assessment of the team. Does he have enough physical potential to avoid being drowned out by the talent elsewhere on the line? Here’s a look at our next Unheralded Player.
