I'll give you credit on that one, definitely a surprise to me. I read this ranking on one of the skins-related blogs today:

1a. Evan Royster

1b. Tim Hightower

1c. Roy Helu, Jr.

i heard on chnl 4 news last night MikeShan said if Hightower can play game 1 of preseason he'll be the starter for regular season. so i guess if he can't it'll be between the rooster and the halo

Redskins’ Evan Royster expecting more from himself in second season

When Evan Royster looks at film of his second professional start, the Washington Redskins running back doesn’t see the 28 yards he gained on a toss to the left against the Philadelphia Eagles last January.

Instead, he sees all the yards he would have gained if he hadn’t slipped without being touched by a defender.

“My mistakes — that’s what stands out to me because I want to get better every day,” Royster said.

“I know when I see a hole or I get excited, I kind of speed up my feet too much,” he said. “If I was breaking a tackle I try to come out of it too fast. That’s when you slip. You’ve got to re-gain your balance and then go. I just get a little antsy.”

Royster believes last year’s playing experience will help him slow the game in his mind. He’ll stay on his feet so he can turn that 28-yard run into something greater.


I am glad that he is taking ownership of this 'balance" issue. With this corrected, it will be tough to keep him from being the main ball carrier.
He finds holes and has that wiggle in his step.

Good call CKR! [/quote]

I know he didn't get as many touches as either Helu or Hightower, but 5.9 ypc is no easy task in the pros.. to be that successful and STILL criticize your game and strive to make you better just has greatness all over it.

Like lpj saw on the news he might not be day one starter, but he should definitely get more touches this year. I hope he turns some heads in preseason... And may the best hand start week one.

With each day of camp, more folks are taking note of Alfred Morris. I still like his chances of making the team. Can't wait to see him in pads as well.

Grant Paulsen‏@granthpaulsen

Alfred Morris is a decisive runner. FAU RB makes a cut and gets up the field. Can't wait to see him in game action.


Redskins‏@Redskins

#Redskins RB Alfred Morris cuts back and zips through the line during full

Redskins‏@Redskins

...after a 50 yard run. #skinscamp


Redskins 101‏@Redskins_101

Alfred Morris is showing out today at #Redskins Park. He needs it. If Hightower or Young's injuries worsen, Morris could make it as a RB/FB.

Head coach Mike Shanahan praised Morris’ improvement as a receiver – an important attribute, given that checking down to the running backs is staple of the Redskins’ passing game. He also described Morris as “impressive,” for both his work ethic and his running style.

“I think everybody can see his natural instincts relative to his running ability out here in practice,” Shanahan said. “You can see he’s pretty impressive. But again, I mean, with running backs, you really don’t know until you put them in game situations, and I’m looking forward to seeing how he reacts.”

DUDE..he started TWO games not TEN. if he goes to the hall of fame one day, nobody would have thought so based on TWO games at the end of his rookie season when some players on the field have already quit and thought about the offseason. two games they lost including one where they were getting destroyed and the defense was LETTING the redskins run it. I know, I was there and saw the defensive alignment. relax, he's not Eric Dickerson.
