Washington Football Team Reality Checks – Week 4, 2020
By Tim Payne
No. 4 – The Reality Is, the cornerback situation should be in flux.
Kendall Fuller was very solid on Sunday in his first action of the year. And Ronald Darby has been serviceable all year. The problem is, neither Jimmy Moreland nor Fabian Moreau performs well in the slot, especially in zone coverage.
Kamren Curl has played the slot in a few sub packages and has been impressive. After watching the tape this week, I expect Jack Del Rio to mix up the personnel. Fuller may play some in the slot in nickel to allow Moreland or Moreau to play outside. Kurl may continue to get more snaps.
My Prediction: I have no idea what will happen against Baltimore other than that the status quo of playing time and positions won’t hold. Moreland should be starting outside, opposite Fuller. Fuller should slide inside in nickel with Darby coming in on the outside.
