Yahoo's take on some of our backups

Washington Redskins Signed as an undrafted free-agent offensive lineman, Jasper Harvey will gain most of his reps at the center position. He also has experience at guard, so he could shift to that spot during preseason games so they can judge if he will be a reliable backup in-season. He caught the eye of offensive line coach Joe Bugel during the team's rookie camps and minicamps, but he will have to fight it out with veterans Tyson Walter, Mike Pucillo and journeyman Jim Jones for one of two likely backup positions. Safety Reed Doughty was a sixth-round pick in this past April's draft, but he brings a lot of intangibles. He's a very bright, dedicated kid with the potential to make an impact on special teams this season, and he plays faster than he times in the 40-yard dash. Always around the ball in college, Doughty is an overachiever that has the intelligence and aggressiveness to earn additional playing time from defensive coordinator Gregg Williams earlier than most will expect. Signed as a free agent, cornerback Chris Hawkins has very good speed, and some even considered him to have a late-round grade for the draft. Hawkins will be fighting guys like Dimitri Patterson, Kenny Wright and Christian Morton. If he shows any type of coverage skills in the preseason, Hawkins, who has 4.4 speed, will earn a place on the practice squad. Fullback/H-back Manuel White returns after missing last season with a broken leg. He has a good combination of size, hands and the ability to gain yardage after contact. White had a tendency to run a little upright at times while at UCLA, but he has the skill level to be successful behind Chris Cooley and Mike Sellers.

Hmm. Someone who has been to a practice this year can answer this: what kind of oppertunity will Manuel White have to make the roster?
