Washington Football Team 2020 stat predictions for DBs and special teams
Landon Collins is the undisputed king of the safeties corps and now he is armed with a new defensive coordinator who will play to the talented strong safety’s strengths. Look for Collins to have a Pro Bowl season.
Prediction for Collins: Two interceptions, seven pass deflections, 2.0 sacks, two forced fumbles, 96 tackles
Troy Apke was been very good in training camp. It’s possible that he is the starting free safety on opening day. Apke’s first year in 2018 was a dud and it ended early with an injury. 2019 was better, but the speedster played mostly on special teams. What a difference a year makes.
Prediction for Apke: Two interceptions, five pass deflections, 29 tackles
Deshazor Everett has staying power. It’s simple – work hard, have a positive attitude, do your best, and good things will happen. That describes Everett. However, he is not guaranteed a place on the team. Everett’s experience will help and he will continue to provide depth at safety. Too, he will continue as a standout on special teams.
Prediction for Everett: Two pass deflections, one fumble recovery, 17 tackles
Sean Davis was all but penciled in as the starter a few weeks ago, but Apke has been the standout in practices thus far. Davis is a solid free safety and was a standout for Pittsburgh for three years, but missed last season with an injury. For now, the prediction is for Davis and Apke to share the duties. Either one could emerge as the true starter shortly after the season starts.
