Further review: Another look at offensive UDFA players at Redskins

Training Camp During the month of May Cheap Jordan Reed Jersey , profiles for all the undrafted free agents signed by the Redskins were posted on Hogs Haven. To read any of these detailed profiles for the five players highlighted in this article, simply click on the player’s name at the top of each player summary below.Yesterday, we looked at four UDFA wide receivers who will be in Training Camp with the Redskins.This article is designed to highlight other UDFA offensive players that are currently on the roster:RB Martez CarterTE Matt FlanaganFB Elijah WellmanOL Timon ParrisC Casey DunnThere is also some information on a sixth player — Garrett Hudson, TE from the University of Richmond — who was signed at the end of May (knocking WR De’Mornay Pierson-El off the roster).Garrett Hudson was never individually profiled on Hogs Haven, being the last UDFA to join the team, however, he is a 6’4”, 245 pound TE from Richmond who has an opportunity, along with all the other UDFAs on the Redskin roster, to earn a spot on the final 53, ahead of September’s season opener against the Cardinals.You’ll find an embedded highlight video and links to two articles about Garner in the player review portion of the article below.These six UDFA offensive players will go to training camp with the Redskins to compete for spots on the regular season roster. While the odds are generally stacked against UDFAs, I believe that some of these players have very real opportunities to break into the 53-man roster, and one or two of them could make it by the end of the preseason. It’s very possible that a few of them could end up with regular season contracts when the ten Practice Squad slots are taken into account.For each of the UDFAs that were profiled on Hogs Haven in May Youth Preston Smith Jersey , two poll questions were put forward:As UDFAs go, rate this player: A, B, C, D or FHow good are the chances that this player is on the Redskins roster in 2018?— Pretty strong— Above average— 50/50— UnlikelyThe results of each poll are printed below each player’s short profile below to give you an idea how each player is seen by the Hogs Haven readers. Running backMartez Carter, RB/KR, Grambling StateDespite his smaller size at 5-foot-7 and 193 pounds, Carter is a threat in both the run and receiving games. He added 449 yards and two touchdowns through the air during his senior season. He was also a significant contributor on special teams throughout his career at Grambling State.How would he fit with the Redskins?Washington fans will already be aware of the strong connection that the Redskins have to Grambling State through Doug Williams, who not only led Grambling to 36 wins as a 4-year starter at QB, but also spent 9 years as the head coach of Grambling’s football team, most recently in 2013, just prior to joining the Redskins front office as a personnel executive.Doug is also a Louisiana native with strong ties to the area; I sense that he may have had a lot to do with getting Carter into Redskins training camp.Note: My personal opinion is that, of all the free agents in Redskins training camp this year Youth Paul Richardson Jersey , Carter has the greatest likelihood to get meaningful offensive or defensive snaps at some point during the regular season.He’s my “sleeper” for the 2018 season.I think he has the chance to beat out Kelley, Bibbs, Marshall, and Marshall — BiBWhat did readers think about him?The full list of Running Backs in Redskins Training CampDerrius GuiceChris ThompsonSamaje PerineRob KelleyKapri BibbsByron MarshallMartez CarterKeith MarshallElijah WellmanElijah Wellman, FB, West VirginiaNote: I think it’s obvious that Gruden isn’t going to keep a fullback, and that he only has one in camp so that the defense can practice against a full back.He’ll always rely on a TE (like Sprinkle) or a LB (like Anderson) to play FB when needed in a game. — BiBTight end & fullbackMatt Flanagan, TE, Rutgers & Pitt Matt Flanagan played in 12 games in 3 years at Rutgers, where he caught 18 passes. Flanagan caught 11 of those passes — including 3 touchdowns — during his sophomore season at Rutgers. He may of shown promise that season but my guess is that injuries derailed his career somewhat.

It was a tough week, and this week there was no sugarcoating things in 1st Amendment Sports’ Basement Podcast Studios. Ken shared his first-hand accounts of a palpably different, and by all measures worse showing both on and off the field in Landover last weekend, during a disappointing Cheap Derrius Guice Jersey , frustrating letdown of a home opener against the Colts. To quote this week’s Sixpack: that sucked.While we generally tend to look at things as a glass half full, this week on Offseason On The Brink we had some genuine, bonafide, honest talk about who these Redskins truly are, and judging by our conversation and the commenters on Facebook Live (thank you all for tuning in once again) this team and this franchise are looking kind of... blah. In an attempt to look ahead, we discuss what will be improved next week as the Green Bay Packers come to town, and instead of a blanket EVERYTHING, there was good conversation about practical areas where the team can get back on the right side of .500 and keep their lead in the NFC East for another week.Be sure to check in with us each and every Tuesday on Facebook live and on Soundcloud, and we hope you’ll continue to join in on the conversation along with us as we break down the week that was!
