Washington Football Team: Final roster projection before cut day
Kendall Fuller, Ronald Darby, Jimmy Moreland, Fabian Moreau, Greg Stroman
More often than not, Rivera and the Panthers had only five cornerbacks on their 53-man roster in Carolina. It stands to reason that he will follow suit here.
At this point, the only question is about who will be the fifth corner. Fuller, Darby, Moreland, and Moreau are roster locks at this point, but the final spot will come down to two players. I explained why I preferred Stroman to Aaron Colvin in my most recent roster projection.
"The fifth cornerback job will likely come down to a battle between Aaron Colvin and Greg Stroman. While I’ve had Colvin penciled in there as a veteran option for a couple of months, I’m leaning toward Stroman now. Simply put, Stroman has a lot of upside at this point in his career. He missed most of the 2019 season with injury issues, but as a rookie, he had some good moments. He can be a nice, versatile backup on the outside and in the slot. Colvin may have more experience and may fit as a slot-specific backup, but Stroman, 24, still has room to grow. That’s the tiebreaker here and if Stroman returns to his rookie year form, he could become a valuable asset for Washington."
So, Stroman it is for now. Colvin will make it if Washington surprises and keeps six at the position, but the only reason they might do that is if the injury that Fuller is nursing will keep him out of action.
