Re: Redskins Notes (3/31): K Wright, Evans etc

While it's nice to have Evans back, I think we have a glut of players on DL. We already have Griffin, Salave'a (spelling?), Killings, Boschetti, and Aki Jones at DT. And now we have Daniels, Wynn, Carter, Evans, and Nic Clemons at DE. Crazy.

Yeah sure, the quantity is there, but what about quality? No question, Carter, Griffin and Salave'a are stars. But both Griffin and Salave'a got banged up quite a bit last year. I still think one more young D-tackle and D-end waiting in the wings would be wise pickups. Evans, Killings, Boschetti, Jones and Clemons are backups at best. I wouldn't want to count on them to anchor our line for any length of time. Renaldo Wynn is just ... there.

I'm still in the camp of those who say that an overhaul of this line is going to be needed sooner rather than later. And that camp has been mysteriously silent recently. Oh sure, each offseason the front office will give lip service to the D-line by signing a player or two. Last year, we passed up what I thought would have been a steal in the fourth round of the draft when 6'7" Chris Canty, the defensive end from UVA was still available. The Skins got yet another H-back in Manuel White instead.

It just seems like the defensive line is forever on the back-burner with these guys. One day, it'll come up to bite them.

killings and evans are quality role players, both can play DT. Wynn can start at either position and be fine. if one guy is injured we shouldn't even notice it, the carter going down hurts pressure and griffin going down is just generally bad.
