SeanTaylor4ever hopes to escalate quickly but not get out of hand.
Default FSU/UF Bros Get In Here

Or anybody familiar with their rosters I am a Redskins fan and I have a few questions.

Christian Thompson RB
I know he has had two major injuries but from the few clips I have seen he looks like a De'anthony Thomas type. Maybe more of a strict running back. Can you guys give me a quick overview of him because imagining him with some of our pistol sets is exciting but I don't want to go overboard. If you could give me a player comparison to somebody more known college or nfl that would be great.

Brandon Jenkins DE/OLB
I have heard that he was the best out of Warner and Carridine before the foot injury. How Accurate is this ? How did he look in spring ball last spring if you can remember?

UF Bros

Jordan Reed TE
I have read conflicting times on his 40. I have seen 4.5s I have seen 4.7s
which is accurate? I've also been hearing he is like an Aaron Hernandez clone is this true ? Do you think he will fit in as a Joker/Move tight end type with Fred Davis playing the inline TE role ? And is he really that much of mismatch for safteys and LBs ?

Xavier Nixon OT
We signed in after the draft. Has he flashed any serious potential ? Is he more of a guard ? Aware me

Reed is a more solid receiving TE then a blocker he will need work on his blocking to be an all around TE but he has great hands and speed after the catch and show some flashes of catch in traffic and down field. With Reed to be productive his first you need use him on he spread and hurry up offense but should provide a solid weapon for RG3.

CT was a very productive RB when healthy at FSU. He was a game changer out of the backfield, and most effective catching the ball. Despite his size, he wasn't afraid to go between the tackles either. I worry about him in the NFL though because even though the back injury was a freaking injury, the fact that his body couldn't hold up to college hitting does not bode well for the NFL. He definitely is a dynamic player though and has the ability to take it to the house on any play.


Jenkins....What could have been this past season. I am on the bandwagon that says he was the best of all 3. He got a freak injury with an opposing player stepping on his foot in the 1st game, and it resulted in the dreaded lisfranc sprain. When I watched him in the offseason drills, it was clear he still was not 100%. Before that, he was the man. He had huge stats his first year of starting, and then they came down a little the next season due to extra attention from opposing offenses which helped Werner out big time. That being said, while the stats weren't there, he was still as effective as the prior season. Very good help on the run, but his pass rushing skills are his bread and butter. Quick first move and loves the spin as well. I hope he can get back to full healthy because he is definitely a NFL starter if he does and a steal in the 5th.

Good stuff ! Thompson who would you compare him to Leon Washington? Darren Sproles with long speed ? De'anthony Thomas?

And I read that it can take a full year to recover from linsfranc injury but we have Orkapo and Kerrigan ahead of him but if he can make it back to 100 percent by season opener.. dat pass rush

My memory of Aaron Hernandez is a little fuzzy, but at the time I recall thinking he was best when catching a really accurate pass, immediately heading upfield, and breaking tackles. I don't really remember him being quite as much of a playmaker as he's been in New England. Most Gators fans are pretty split on Reed but I thought he was good. He didn't time particularly fast but looks like he can move pretty good on the field. He didn't get nearly as good of passes thrown his way as Hernandez did. I thought Reed was more creative when he had the ball and tried to make big plays more. He was literally the team's only threat in the passing game for three years.

Nixon was a multi-year starter at left tackle. He has pretty good movement, not the greatest strength and not the greatest technique. He was usually functional but definitely struggled with NFL caliber rushers like Jarvis Jones and Jadaveon Clowney. He seems like he'd have a decent chance of making it as a ZBS guard in the NFL.

I would go Sproles. He has terrific hands out of the backfield and when he is in the open field, he's gone.
