Yeah, I am not to worried about Banks. He is what he is. Hankerson is still up in the air. I saw promise right before he got injured. Question mark.

I have always been a fan of Robinson. He will definitely push Tana for that slot position. Glad to hear that Tana has lost weight. I as thinking that he was a June cut coming up.

When Shanny talked about the WR he mentioned Banks more than any other receiver Hankerson was a close second :shock:


That doesn't surprise me! Shanny showed at the end of last year what he wants to do with Banks - option passes, end arounds - who knows what he has dreamed up next. As long as Banks holds on to the ball, he holds on to a spot on this team.


RGIII can catch and is faster than anyone that would be stuck in coverage with him :D

Was that last play of RGIII's pro day, a preview of what you are talking about?

I just hope they do not design plays (gadget) that have him running down field. If he has to run, I hope it is because the play broke down and no one is open and, he happens to get yards doing so.

Jon Keim, Washington Examiner:

Robinson could be one of the more intriguing players to watch this summer if only because the speedy receiver never looked all that fast last summer. Will a year in the offense and a legitimate offseason make a difference? He’d better hope so. And, for now, he says it has made one.

“It’s a big difference,” Robinson said. “I came out here last year and I didn’t know the plays and I didn’t know where to line up. I couldn’t let my talent show. Now that I know the offense I can compete now. I can show my speed. I can run routes faster. I can be a better-paced guy.”

Robinson admitted he didn’t play as fast as he wanted to last summer. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds at the combine in 2011, but too often he failed to get past defensive backs on routes in practice.

“I wasn’t able to show my speed," he said. "That’s my main attribute. That’s the one thing that puts me above others, now that I know the offense and I’m comfortable with it I can show my speed, get in and out of breaks and catch the ball.”

The Redskins kept him around because of that speed – that speed is why they didn’t want him to sign with Jacksonville off the practice squad and instead promoted him. They also worked with him on catching punts, something he struggled to do last training camp.


I believe that Robinson is the receiver to watch during the OTA's, mini camp and training camp. Since he was almost signed by Jacksonville from the PS, it appears that PS is not an option.

^ Darth, this is a continuation of last year's WR thread - the one that you correctly predicted that Stallworth would stick (what a call). WR is not in the title, but, "Why not do it again..." was supposed to clue us in. :)

BTW - Who are your 6 or 7 so far?

1nik, you might want to add WR into the thread title. :)

Gotcha. I'll repost the roster question elsewhere - maybe in Depth Chart.

7 WR:

I say Banks, Austin, Kirkland, and Robinson fight for 2 spots behind Garcon, Hank, Morgan, Moss, and Armstrong. I lean toward Banks and Robinson.

Pierre Garçon
Joshua Morgan
Leonard Hankerson
Santana Moss
Lance Lewis
Brandon Banks
Aldrick Robinson.

7 receivers.

Armstrong will have to have to become RGIIIs favorite deep threat during the off season to be able to beat out Lewis.

Banks realizes that his future depends on being able to contribute at receiver, as he tells Larry Michael on Redskins Nation.

I expect to see Banks used more at WR this year. We saw him lining up more at the position at the end of last year. I believe he stays.

At 2:18 of this video, Rich Tandler talks about Banks. I think he is spot on about Banks' chances on making the team. Banks is seeing more reps at wideout than last year because he knee is better. While Tandler won't say that Banks is a lock to be on this team, he says says until someone shows that they can do better in the return game than Banks (particularly his explosiveness), he sees Banks on the team.

I agree with Tandler. People need to stop being biased against Banks because he got stabbed and he's small. He's going to prove yet again that he's one of the best returners in the game.
SPIT HAPPENS!!

LOL. I don't if I'm biased towards him because he's small and has been stabbed! :) But yeah I am a little surprised that so many are guessing he will make the team this year. I thought he was kind of a non-factor last year.

I wouldn't day he was a non factor. He has several long returns and had punters pointing short out of bounds a long. I thought the blocking units were terrible.

Plus he has a reverse fora td that got called back on a bs holding call.
