Kerrigan expects big second-year jump

Kerrigan expects big second-year jump By Dan Graziano

I promised you more from the time I spent at Washington Redskins training camp earlier this week, and I keep my promises. As long as Camp Confidential was, there were things I learned from watching and interviewing people that weren't addressed in there. So over the coming days, I plan to offer a few more posts based on my own reporting from Redskins camp, on a variety of topics. I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for the (fixed) link. I am really looking forward to seeing how our dynamic duo of olb's function this season. Along with an improved defensive center with jenkins.....and another year of playing in same system....think that rak and kerrigan will assert themselves this season and show they are in the elite category. At least, that is my hope.

I expect a big year from him too for obvious reasons...

I'm thinking that's going to continue to work the other way around. Either way, it means more sacks/pressure for the team.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

I hope getting Jenkins into the rotation will be a bump up for both. If he returns to the form he showed prior to the injury, he should be very disruptive to runs and rollouts, freeing the olbs to rush harder and be less vulnerable in the run game. It seemed like Rak got burned quite a bit in the run game last year.

I expect 12 plus sacks each from our bookends. I expect a total of at least forty QB sacks. To me Kerrigan will end up being the better of the two. Unless Rack decides to add some more moves and some discipline on his outside contain.

Check! Let's hear it for a third year bump.

Ryan Kerrigan - LB - Redskins

According to Pro Football Focus, Ryan Kerrigan led all 3-4 outside linebackers in quarterback hurries with 50 last season.

Kerrigan terrorized opposing quarterbacks even though pass-rushing partner Brian Orakpo played in just two games. So Kerrigan saw increased offensive attention. He racked up 8.5 sacks, 54 tackles, one interception, two forced fumbles and eight pass breakups. Kerrigan will see more single blocks this year.

John Keim joined the post earlier this month, and I'm glad for it. I've always found his analysis over at the dying Examiner to be really good.

The following is from his position by position review of linebackers (Link). Pertinent portions:

2) Will Brian Orakpo stay healthy? He said his left arm is feeling great after tearing his pec twice in the last 18 months. But he’ll still have to prove he can survive training camp (let alone the season).The tough part is playing on the right side and having to take on blockers straight up, he often must reach out with his left arm to tackle runners cutting to the inside. Orakpo’s presence is vital to the pass rush; maybe his sack totals aren’t elite, but nobody else on the roster makes others around him better the way he does.

What to watch for: Ryan Kerrigan’s pass rush. Last season, Kerrigan did not develop as a rusher the way he and others thought he might. Kerrigan recorded 8.5 sacks, but the bulk of them occurred when he was either rushing from another spot or to the inside, against a guard, rather than against a right tackle. It will help having Orakpo back to collapse the pocket on the other side and draw more double teams, though it’s incorrect to think Kerrigan’s sack total was only impacted by facing extra blockers. But what also will help is Kerrigan taking a better path to the quarterback. He said after the season that he was too cautious at times – heading too straight upfield — wanting to keep the quarterback contained rather than taking a more aggressive approach turning the corner, or working back inside. For Kerrigan to take the so-called next step he’ll have to improve in this area and better learn to counter when tackles take away his favored rip move.


Emphasis is mine.

And just how many games did you see Orakpo play in last season? :twisted:
