A look at the Redskins’ 53-man roster
Question of the Day
22 Carlos Rogers 6-0 190 28 Auburn
23 DeAngelo Hall 5-10 195 25 Virginia Tech
25 Kevin Barnes 6-11 88 22 Maryland
27 Fred Smoot 5-11 185 30 Mississippi St.
34 Byron Westbrook 5-10 198 24 Salisbury
Analysis: Westbrook was the big winner Saturday. He probably was headed back to the practice squad for a third year, but Rogers’ calf injury necessitated an additional corner for at least the opening week. Rogers’ presence is huge. With him and Hall, the Redskins have two solid cover corners; without Rogers, the Redskins have to rely heavily on Smoot and especially Tryon and Barnes, two youngsters who had inconsistent camps.
30 LaRon Landry 6-0 210 24 LSU
37 Reed Doughty 6-1 205 26 No. Colorado
41 Kareem Moore 5-11 218 25 Nicholls St.
48 Chris Horton 6-1 211 24 UCLA
Analysis: The Redskins have youth, depth and athleticism at safety, and even though Landry and Horton are the starters, Doughty and Moore will see playing time. Everybody in camp is predicting a big season for Landry (three takeaways in 32 career games), and Horton will benefit if the quarterbacks throw under pressure. Doughty has returned from a back injury and looked sharp at Jacksonville, posting two pressures via the blitz.
3 Hunter Smith (P) 6-2 209 32 Notre Dame
6 Shaun Suisham (K) 6-0 200 27 Bowling Green
