What Position Has Seen the Most Talent
 
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Alright I don't start many threads and rarely are they meaningful so I thought I would start this one. Since I am so unorthodox I decided to do this on my 5001st post instead of my 5000th...alright I f'd up.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[FONT=Verdana][COLOR=black]So here is the question: Over the history of the Washington Redskins which position(s) have enjoyed the most talent and why?[/COLOR][/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana][COLOR=black]I will say the Defensive Backfield because all of the players listed below are part of the 70 greatest redskins.[/COLOR][/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana][COLOR=black]Sammy Baugh[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana][COLOR=black]Mike Bass[/COLOR][/FONT]

...and don't forget CB's Joe 'the bird' Lavendar and Lemar Parrish were also very good in their prime. I believe they were pro bowl selections back in the day?

Offensive line?

Chris Samuels
RandyThomas
Derrick Dockery
Jon Jansen
Russ Grimm
Joe Jacoby
Mark May
Jeff Bostic
Jim Lachey
Daryl Grant
George Starke
Raleigh McKenzie
Mark Schlereth
Turk Edwards
Ed Simmons
Dick Stanfel
Ray Schoenke
Trevor Matich
Ray Brown
Tre Johnson
Ethan Albright
Terry Hermeling
Ed Simmons

probably others...

Hopefully Trent Williams will be on that list someday.

In terms of sheer talent, WR - imagine lining up these three all-time greats as the two WRs and slot:

Charley Taylor
Art Monk
Bobby Mitchell

What team could field a better top three?

Who would you put at TE to round out the receiving corp? Didirer? Jerry Smith? Cooley?

Re: What Position Has Seen the Most Talent
 
Ok I'll play along. If thinking about throughout the yrs also I'd say position wise maybe OL, or LB. I will say we have been through our fair share of QB not all of them would be called greats though and thinking about it maybe RB.

Larry Brown
Riggins
Washington
Davis
Portis
Allen
Byner
Betts
Mitchell

There were many others probably not called great or even good. One example would be S. Alexander, I think he was a great RB just not with us. I think he was past his prime with us.

Just picture that D Line - Butz, Mann, Manley and Grant. I think they might even be able to be mentioned in the same conversation as the Steel Curtain.

I don't have great perspective to answer this question, but I'd say the Redskins have more quality LBs in their history than it really seems like.
