DT is a phenomenal athlete. Before he was drafted, it was well-known that he didn't have a lot of college experience at WR and that it would take some time for him develop as a pro WR. That has proven to be the case; however, when he finally gets it, his superior speed and quickness should help him to earn a starting job, IMHO.

As long as Kelly can stay on the field, I have a lot of faith that DT and MK can both have solid careers. I'm among those who thought that it would take them both some time to arrive, for different reasons (health, in the case of MK). I also believe that their development was retarded by inadequate conditioning, a pathetic offense under Zorn, and poor coaching by Stan Hixon.
I agree with you on DT. I think he's potentially on the verge of greatness. I think Kelly can be a solid starter for years (if he can stay healthy), but Thomas, in my opinion, has pro-bowl potential

Re: Malcolm Kelly Injured During Hell Week

Buster & Angry i see what you guys are saying and i think youre right. But it does seem that Reid doesnt put out nearly as much as JLC and doesnt have as much of a "insider" presence as JLC did. Plus Reid isnt nearly as critical as JLC was, which i liked a lot. Hopefully all that will change in time.

Of course, the Arizona cops immediately started chasing him...asking to see a copy of his contract. Can't blame Malcolm for running before stretching.

i'd say more like a 50 to 60 catch season with about 700 to 800 yards and 4 or 5 td's is more realistic. he's got to crawl before he can walk.

Re: Malcolm Kelly Injured During Hell Week

what is so annoying is these guys are part time players and they always seem to be nicked up. that is why i really wanted marshall. he plays week in and week out. and please no comments on the bs w/ mcdaniels during the last week of the season.

Malcolm Kelly=Taylor Jacobs
Soft and injury prone.
Has MK not been injured during a Redskins training camp? The guy is a walking hamstring injury.

MK was never known for having hamstring problems that was DT.

Kind of my worst fears (nearly) realized with that 2008 draft class. I'd say more talent evaluation misses occur due to 1) overestimation of a sample of talent, and 2) injury history, than any other variables. Four months from now, we might be saying that Vinny missed on both variables on two different players in the same round.

Which would be very unlucky, but not shocking.

If true on all counts this would be great for the Redskins.

Guess the injury talk was blown slightly out of proportion

Re: Malcolm Kelly Injured During Hell Week

A little concerning.


Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas are down the depth chart

Wide receiver Joey Galloway is 38. In the last two seasons, he has a total of 20 receptions for 205 yards with no touchdowns. Roydell Williams has been out of football the past two seasons.

At the outset of Redskins training camp, however, Galloway and Williams are listed as co-starters at the X receiver, or split end, position. Former Redskins high draft picks Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly are further down the depth chart.

Obviously, the Redskins are only getting started. Thomas and Kelly, who injured his hamstring before camp, will have opportunities to impress in camp and throughout the preseason schedule. But it appears they have a lot of work to do.

"What we do is we get a depth chart at the end of OTAs [organized team activities], and Joey, we had him as the no. 1 guy along with Roydell Williams," Coach Mike Shanahan said. They were "kind of tied at the X receiver position. We felt those two guys had played the best through the OTAs and that's why Joey was listed along with Roydell as the No. 1 X."

The coaching staff moved top wideout Santana Moss from the X spot to Z, or flanker, during the offseason. It appears the 10-year veteran has a firm grip on his position, so the battle for playing time will be at the spot opposite Moss.

Washington traded its first-round pick in the 2008 draft and selected Thomas, Kelly and pass-catching tight end Fred Davis with its three second-round picks. Davis impressed while starting in place of injured Pro Bowler Chris Cooley last season.

After struggling with maturity issues as a rookie, Thomas improved his work habits last season, bumped Kelly from the starting lineup in Week 6 and had a seven-catch, 100-yard, two-touchdown performance in a Week 13 loss to the New Orleans Saints. But he sat out the final two games in 2009 because of an ankle injury.

Kelly missed most of his rookie season because of knee issues the Redskins were aware of when they drafted him. He worked hard to recover from microfracture surgery and impressed during the 2009 preseason, but was demoted in favor of Thomas because former head coach Jim Zorn was dissatisfied with Kelly's route running.

Thomas and Kelly were slowed again by injuries during Shanahan's offseason program. "Both guys were hurt," Shanahan said. "Devin had some problems with his legs and so did Malcolm, and you can't really impress anybody if you're not practicing."

Redskins officials did their due diligence in discussing whether to sign former free-agent wideout Terrell Owens, who this week joined the Cincinnati Bengals, but Shanahan didn't want Owens. A trade for San Diego Chargers wideout Vincent Jackson remains a possibility. A lot may depend on how Thomas and Kelly fare in the preseason.

"They will get their chances," Shanahan said of the third-year players. "This is where we start. It's a starting point. It's surely not where we're gonna finish. It could be. There's gonna be competition. There was competition today. Devin had a very good [first] practice today and made some good catches. It's part of an evaluation process. But you have to start somewhere."
