Here at Redskin Park, the Redskins are 25 minutes away from starting training camp and when I arrived at about 3 p.m., a line snaked down the driveway waiting to get through the gates and — believe it or not — there were actually fans tailgating in the gravel parking lots. Some things never cease to amaze me.

Back to football. The Redskins signed eight free agents during the offseason and drafted six players. But not all of them are expected to make the roster. Here’s a position by position breakdown of who I think has secured roster spots:

QB: 1. Brunell; 2. Campbell; 3. Collins

RB: 4. Betts; 5. Cartwright; 6. Portis

WR: 7. Lloyd; 8. Moss; 9. Patten; 10. Randle El; 12. Thrash

TE: 13. Cooley; 14. Fauria; 15. R. Johnson; 16. Sellers

OL: 17. Dockery; 18. Jansen; 19. Rabach; 20. Samuels; 21. Thomas; 22. Pucillo.

LB: 23. K. Campbell; 24. C. Clemons; 25. Holdman; 26. Marshall; 27. McCune; 28. McIntosh; 29. Washington

DB: 30. Archuleta; 31. Doughty; 32. Jimoh; 33. Prioleau; 34. Rogers; 35. Springs; 36. Taylor; 37. Wright

DL: 38. Carter; 39. Daniels; 40. Evans; 41. Griffin; 42. Salave’a; 43. Wynn.

LS: 44. Albright.

That leaves nine roster spots up for grabs: Kicker, punter, two backup offensive linemen, three defensive tackle spots, one defensive end spot and a swing guy — either a linebacker or tight end.
