3. John Miller, Guard
Trai Turner has been a better player than John Miller throughout his career. When he was at his best, he was significantly better.
But in recent years, I think Miller has been the steadier player. He fits the exact profile of Wes Schweitzer, a young vet who can start or provide interior line depth.
He may never become a dominant blocker, but he has graded out as a decent player in both running and passing situations, and that is a meaningful factor, especially for a potential depth player. As Schweitzer proved last season, having a veteran who can step in without requiring major restricting of the game plan is vital.
It is possible that last year’s rookies, Saahdiq Charles and Keith Ismael, could get some looks at guard this season. But Washington can’t be very confident about Wes Martin, and behind those unproven players, Washington has nothing should Schweitzer or Brandon Scherff miss time this year.
Wilson, Burton, and Miller are far from sure things and if the Washington Football Team were to sign any or all, there is no guarantee that any would make the team or have the impacts that Darby and Pierre-Louis had last year.
But these signings often get overlooked with a new quarterback, wide receiver and cornerback headed to town. But sometimes a signing like this can make the difference between team staying competitive through the year and falling apart due to an injury or two.
