I'd like to see Nixon solve the RT issue. I think he has a legitimate chance because he'll receive proper coaching and hopefully a performance incentive contract.

Might be a hard-case uncoachable. If he's not, he could be an all-pro. Worth a chance, but don't hold your breath. He's had chances before.

Offense - Could be Aldrick Robinsons breakout year, if Garcon stays healthy.
Deffense - Phillip Thomas, just because he a ballhawk and has something to prove. If it wasn't for the injury, he would of went much higher.

He appears to be the more quintessential "change of pace" guy. 5 foot 7, 190lbs and reportedly runs 4.3. He's a homerun hitter with explosive moves.
SPIT HAPPENS!!

I didn't read he ran a 4.3, but a 4.5. Are you sure of this info?

I think it is very hard to tell at this point, but these are the players I WANT to see big things from next year:
1. Merriweather
2. Amerson
3. Riley (even more than last year -- which I still thought was productive)
4. Jenkins
5. Davis

If Merriweather could have HALF the game he did against PHI last season, then our defense will be seriously upgraded. That said, I don't expect much from players coming off injuries like his.

Jenkins has been an underperformer based on where he was drafted. That said, I NEVER expected much from him and thought he was a reach when we drafted him (you can even check my posts). I still would like to be proven wrong.

I'm just hoping Amerson contributes because we need serious help at the CB position. This is just based on hope.

Riley was great last year, but I still believe he can be even better. Honestly, I would like to see him show that he can transition into Fletcher's spot when Fletcher decides his time is up.

Davis can easily he a "splash" player, but coming off injury who knows. I'd like to see him become a solid 3rd down option.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

There's been a lot of praise in the media quoting the Shanny on Rambo's performance. Seems like all three of our DB picks are playing up to standards right off :)

This is excellent news!!

Sooooo...you're saying I shouldn't send you an invite to the Super Bowl party this summer? :lol:

At this point, any good news about our secondary is worth some optimism (though I do agree with your point).

I'm sure that I've seen both times reported, so not sure what the truth is. What is certain is that his film shows him running away from a lot of people very quickly.

Edit: a quick re-read of some scouting reports provides a consensus of 4.4 in the 40.

I do not expect it for sure but I would feel great if Minnifield can play and show his true potential. He is a great player and would make a great Redskin.
Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans over the last decade. Stay away from football operations !!!
