Washington Football Team depth chart: Centers and Guards
When Chase Roullier signed a new contract recently, it guaranteed that he will be the starter for several years to come. The only question comes with who will be the backup. Two players will vie for that honor and a decision could come down to the day of the 53-man roster announcement.
- Chase Roullier
- Tyler Larsen
- Keith Ismael
For now, we will give the backup center position to Tyler Larsen. Larsen bounced around the league for many years (including a stint with the Washington Football Team in 2015) and played for several year for Ron Rivera in Carolina.
He has a size advantage over Keith Ismael, but there is one factor in favor of the former Aztec Warrior – youth.
Roullier is the undisputed starter and Larsen will win the backup job in a very close battle.
The guards unit is the most talented and deepest it has been in many years. The overall depth goes far beyond what the Washington Football Team has experienced in more than 15 years – a time when big Randy Thomas and Derrick Dockery were mowing through defensive lines.
- Brandon Scherff
- Ereck Flowers
- Saahdiq Charles
- Wes Schweitzer
- Beau Benzschawel
- Wes Martin
Brandon Scherff is the undisputed starter at right guard and he is the most talented of the unit. Ereck Flowers and Saahdiq Charles will compete for the left guard position and Wes Schweitzer will provide depth. Beau Benzschawel could be heading to the practice squad and Wes Martin will probably be released.
- Right Guard – Brandon Scherff, Wes Schweitzer
- Left Guard – Ereck Flowers, Saahdiq Charles
