OffenseDaniel Jones
Youth Alex Smith Jersey , QBSchool: Duke | Conference: ACCCollege Experience: RS Junior | Age: 22?Height / Weight: 6-5 / 220 lbsYou may have heard of Daniel Jones. Rumor has it some NFL scouts really like him. He certainly has the size and he has a decent arm and good accuracy. I will stop trying to figure out quarterbacks as I am not too high on him personally mostly because of his arm and ability to ‘make all the throws’ and his performance against higher competition. But I will not deny that Jones had his best game of the season this past weekend against Pitt. Jones set season highs in passing yards, touchdowns in a game, and rushing yards as he carried Duke to a win. I wouldn’t be shocke[Image: nike_redskins_1043.jpg]d if Daniel Jones went quite high or quite low (I really have no idea) in this year’s draft but he is someone you should here more about if he continues to string together performances like this. Jones finished the day 27 of 42for 396 yards, 4 TDs, 15 carries and 38 rushing yards.Marquez Stevenson, WRSchool: Houston | Conference: AACCollege Experience: RS Sophomore | Age: 21?Height / Weight: 6-0 / 190 lbsStevenson missed his entire true sophomore season with a torn ACL. He is back in force this year and is shining in a high powered Houston offense. Stevenson is the Cougars best receiver and receiving leader on the team. This past weekend he had another great game against South Florida in a game where very little defense was played. Stevenson has nice size and quickness and can make men miss on the run. He also has a knack for finding the end zone. With a pair of solid hands it wouldn’t surprise me if he went for over 1300 yards and 12 TDs this year after all he’s already more than halfway there. His stat line in this one was 6 catches for 106 yards and 2 TDs.David Sills V, WRSchool: West Virginia | Conference: BIG 12College Experience: Senior | Age: 22?Height / Weight: 6-4 / 210 lbsI have been following this Will Grier and David Sills relationship since early last season. The two players feed off each other in such a crucial way. Lane Kiffin the former coach of USC offered Sills a scholarship to play QB at the age of 13. Sills skills as a QB never really developed the way they should have and he eventually found his position as a WR at West Virginia. Sills is a possession receiver who I think fits the mold of Jordy Nelson. He is reliable and efficient and after getting a 6th round grade from the draft advisory board last season could make his way into the mid rounds this year. Sills also has the size to be a nice redzone threat and though he doesnt get much separation he can snatch the ball away from defenders if you let him go get it. Sills worked the Baylor defenders this past weekend and finished with 5 catches for 139 yards and 2 TDs. Zack Moss, RBSchool: Utah | Conference: PAC 12College Experience: Junior | Age: 21?Height / Weight: 5-10 / 215 lbsIts plain and simple the surge in elite running back prospects who went in the 1st round is all but at an end but aside from Benny Snell I think one RB who has a shot to go early on day 2 if he declares is Zack Moss. It’s funny that in putting together articles where I don’t want you to just take my writing for truth I also want you to see the player’s ability that it is difficult to find clips of a guy with over 2,500 rushing yards and 22 TDs in his career. Nevertheless I hope you take my word in good faith when I tell you not only is Moss very athletic, but he is reliable, strong, and a battering ram at the running back position. What to make a defense succumb to attrition? Run Zack Moss at them for 3 quarters. Moss did just that against UCLA. He finished with 26 carried for 211 yards and 3 TDs. Zack Moss #2Kelvin Harmon http://www.authenticswashingtonredskins....vao-jersey , WRSchool: NC State | Conference: ACCCollege Experience: Junior | Age: 21?Height / Weight: 6-3 / 214 lbsI don’t know how much of a secret Kelvin Harmon is but I think he should be in the top-100 conversation. Harmon is balling out in spite of an NC State offense that his having trouble consistently running the ball and experiencing up and down performances from their QB. Get the ball in Harmon’s hands and he will do something good. He did just that against Syracuse this past weekend. Syracuses pass defense is nothing to be proud of but when you go 11 for 247 and 2 TDs you are doing something right. Harmon killed them plain and simple. He has an impressive blend of size and athleticism but his catching ability and body control are what set him apart from his peers. If you are an NC State fan their isn’t much to be positive about but you can be proud of Harmon. DefenseVosean Joseph, LBSchool: Florida | Conference: SECCollege Experience: Junior | Age: 21?Height / Weight: 6-1 / 226lbs Early in the season I featured David Reese, Joseph’s teammate and fellow ILB. Joseph is the better prospect and much more explosive than Reese. He may be a bit light for the traditional ILB role in a 3-4 but in the right scheme he would make a hell of a WILL LB. As you’ll see Joseph has some explosion to him. He’ll have to improve his fundamentals to match his athleticism to start in the NFL. He is pretty good at playing the rush but he definitely has skills rushing the passer from the interior. Florida had a tough matchup against Georgia this week and Joseph did his best to throw off the Georgia offense. He finished with 13 tackles and a sack. Anthony Nelson, EDGESchool: Iowa | Conference: BIG 10College Experience: RS Junior | Age: 22?Height / Weight: 6-7 / 271 lbsLast week I featured Nelson’s teammate Parker Hesse but this week Nelson gets the spotlight. Coincidentally I first noticed Nelson last year when he played against Penn State for the pressure he put on McSorley. This time around was no different. It was a losing effort but Nelson made his presence felt. At one point he even helped knock McSorley out of the game with a lower leg injury. Nelson is an interesting EDGE prospect. I daresay after Preston Smith and Trent Murphy he won’t be what Redskins fans are looking for but he is no doubt talented. He is likely more at home as a 4-3 DE but his size, strength, counter moves, and motor are all impressive. He finished this game with 5 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Germaine Pratt, LBSchool: NC State | Conference: ACCCollege Experience: Senior | Age: 23?Height / Weight: 6-3 / 240 lbsIf you want to hedge your bets in a darkhorse prospect that will get more and more hype as the season continues place them on Pratt. Pratt is putting up 1st round numbers in a P5 conference with consistency. He has especially been on a tear these last 3 games against Boston College, Clemson, and Syracuse. Now I am not calling Pratt a 1st round pick by any means but I do think he will be an excellent value in the upcoming draft. Pratt has decent athleticism but it is his experience, processing, and ability to react that put him on par with more athletic LB prospects. He is great in pursuit and can play the run as well as rush the passer. I will have my eye on him the rest of the way. He finished this game against the Orange with 16 tackles (2.5 for loss) D.J. Swearinger Jersey , 2.5 sacks, and a forced fumble. Checkout timestamps: 0:37, 19:03, 19:50Hamp Cheevers, CBSchool: Boston College | Conference: ACCCollege Experience: Junior | Age: 21?Height / Weight: 5-10 / 180 lbsLast year I badly wanted to write about Boston College safety Lukas Denis. Denis had a career year last season and was one of the best safeties in the ACC in 2017. This year he has not lived up to the bar he set last year. In looking for him to flash I found someone else, Hamp Cheevers. Cheevers is in second place in the nation for most interceptions with 5 and he is fourth in the country in interception return yards with 112. The play of the Canes has been dismal and the Boston College defense, Cheevers in particular took advantage of bad QB play. Cheevers is undersized so I can’t imagine him being higher than a 4th or 5th round pick despite his tape and production. However he is a competitive corner who is a bit better at playing zone than playing man at this point though both skills need improvement. Like out own Greg Stroman he will keep fighting and not give up on a play. I love those guys in the later rounds. He finished this game with 2 tackles, 1 INT, and 2 PDs. Gary Johnson, LBSchool: Texas | Conference: BIG 12College Experience: Senior | Age: 22?Height / Weight: 6-0 / 230 lbsAnother athletic linebacker for you all one who’s bread and butter is disruption. Johnson has great speed and quickness. He may not finish all his chances but he certainly can make QBs uncomfortable and can chase down running backs. I think he needs to improve his fundamentals but the physical skills are there. I think a guy like Johnson would be an excellent special teamer to start off his career. He’s had in interesting journey. At one point he was committed to Alabama but had to decommit for academic reasons. He spent the first two years of his college career in JUCO before transferring to Texas. You can see his raw talent. If he can develop and be coached up he could be a diamond in the rough type of player. He finished a losing effort against Oklahoma State with 10 tackles and a sack.Mason/Brennan Preseason Hype! Awards: Who’s got the hype heading into week 3 of the Redskins preseason? The Mason/Brennan Preseason Hype! Award has been given out unofficially by the fans for years to each preseason's most hyped players, but now we've made it official, and will bring it to a vote. This week's vote counts the hype heading into the Redskins preseason Week 3 game against the Broncos. Place your vote for who you feel has been the most hyped player up to this point Authentic Paul Richardson Jersey , whether the hype is deserved or not.The Rules:1. Player must have been drafted late or signed by the Redskins as an undrafted free agent. Players that have only been on other teams practice squads that are signed by the team are also eligible.2. A player that has been on the team for several years is still eligible if most of that time has been spent on the practice squad, inactive, or with very limited productivity/timeHow have past Mason/Brennan winners done in thr NFL after receiving this glorious award?Offseason Mason/Brennan Winner: WR Trey Quinn (49%)Week 1 Mason/Brennan Winner: CB Danny Johnson (27%)The Candidates:RB Kapri BibbsBibbs keeps making plays, and more importantly, staying healthy in the preseason. Three more RBs went down against the Jets last week(sorry Martez Carter, you were definitely making the list this week). Bibbs keeps scrapping for a spot, even with the arrival of Adrian Peterson.OG Isaiah WilliamsWhat is the easiest way to get nominated for gor the Mason/Brennan Preseason Hype! Awards besides being a 6'5" WR? Play a position that fans want to see the projected starter replaced. Shawn Lauvao returned to the field with the starters last week, but Isaiah Williams has many fans hoping he makes the team over some of the other retreads from last year.CB Greg StromanStroman is still riding a hype wave from being part of the reason we were able to get rid of former Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick. DB Adonis AlexanderI'm just going to leave what I wrote about Adonis last week here until he actually plays in a game. Alexander has been injured, hasn’t done much of note in camp, and didn’t play against the Patriots(or the Jets). Has that stopped his hype, and Jay Gruden from mentioning him following the Scrandrick release? Absolutely not! You can’t spend a 6th round pick next year, and just give up on a physical specimen like Adonis can you?WR Maurice HarrisMaurice Harris should be the starter! He just needs more chances! Did you see that one catch last year! Mo has earned some legit hype in camp and preseason this year Youth Alex Smith Jersey , but injuries keep on catching up to him and he won't be on the field in the Broncos game, a big week for the Mason/BrennansOLB Pete RobertsonPetey didn't make the cut last week, but he's back and still trying to get you to remember his name.ILB Jerod Fernandez If you get two sacks in a single preseason game, you're pretty much a lock to be nominated here. WR Cam SimsCams Sims is officially a Hype! STUD, and has already been compared to Julio Jones after two preseason games in the NFL. He won't play tonight but does he even have to, some fans already have him replacing Josh Doctson as the starter. Sims is "raw as can be" according to Jay Gruden but he makes big catches against little defenders that get people excited!WR Trey QuinnHe’s back, but he never really left did he? Mr. Irrelevant got his own video package from the Monday Night Football crew on Thursday night, and a feature on the Bleacher. He also did that whole catching the ball thing that WRs get paid for. Quinn’s nomination this week tests the heights of the Cam Sims hype.
