Good. Hopefully, he can make up for the deficiencies on rest of the O-line.

Not trying to hate on the OLB's but he is supposed to be a badass himself.
You'd rather he practice against a 2005 11th overall pick than a 2009 13th overall pick?

Re: Washington Post: Redskins Training Camp Observations

The Williams/Orakpo battles sound like they are really, really good. Rak is apparently in the backfield often but it doesn't soulnd like most of them are off Williams. Rather, it sounds like the two of them are absolutely dominating any one else they go against. Men against boys as it were. Williams apparently was handling Kerrigan - who I think we can agree is no slouch - easily.

I think that is excellent news.

Yes. D. Ware is better than Brian Orakpo. More specifically i was just trying to say that our starting left tackle should be better than our ROLB. His performance has a greater impact on the game, and he was drafted high because of it.

Practice report: Special RG3 edition - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins

Man I hope they increase the number of attempts per practice.
11 passes during force on force scrimmage doesn't seem like a lot.
Get that volume up baby!

Trent Williams should be able to hold off Orakpo and Kerrigan simply because he's bigger and stronger than both of them. But going up against the two of them helps him prepare for the Trent Coles, Osi Umeyonoria's, Demarcus Wares of the NFL, then this is the type of push he needs.

Redskins practice report (8/1) - Washington Times

...
A few takeaways from OL-DL one-on-ones:

RT Tyler Polumbus gets beat when he reaches for the defender and gets too far forward. He loses power and his canít move his feet to stay in front of the rusher. It happened against OLB Chris Wilson, and rookie Monte Lewis. If Monte Lewis is beating your starting right tackleÖ

DL Jarvis Jenkinsí bull rush was not successful against rookie G Nick Martinez. Martinez stayed low and used his hands effectively. RG Chris Chester later rode Jenkins out, as well. Iím still waiting to see the power that Jenkins so frequently showed last summer.
Two concerning blurbs above. Sure, first days in practice, and we can wait longer for the preseason to develop --> but I'm hoping Jenkins gets back into form. I was hoping he'd really improve our front d-line rotation..

And Polumbus is continuing to develop, but a little frightening when a rookie is beating our starting RT...

I wouldn't look too much into this. Polumbus did a tremendous job at right tackle for us last season when Jammal Brown was placed on IR. I'd cut Ploumbus some slack considering this is his first bit of work with the starting offensive unit since training camp began.

I'm expecting Jarvis Jenkins to play excellent football this season.

NFL - Observations from Washington Redskins training camp - ESPN

Interesting blurb from Clayton here:

Still, Meriweather is a former first-round talent who really loves playing the game. He's a good blitzer and a big hitter. Jackson had numerous off-the-field issues in Tampa Bay, but he's talented free safety who can make plays. At one point, Williams was one of the highest-paid safeties in football. Even though it didn't work out for him in Minnesota, he could help a decent Redskins defense as a backup. He has good coverage skills.

Re: Washington Post: Redskins Training Camp Observations

Took the drive down to Ashburn 8/1/12 and this is what I saw with the untrained eye.

IT WAS HOT.
Fletch & Kerrigan had the day off.
TW does look really good had a play were he rode Riley out and just pushed him to the floor like a rag doll.
Lo Ax looks good, made nice INT of RG3 and tried to run him down on a 30 yard TD run should've taken a better angle.
Hank looks good don't see any hint that still has an injury.
RG3 threw 2 INT's the 2nd one Hall stepped in front of the receiver, ball slightly under thrown.
RG3 is fast I mean FAST.
Cousins looks good made some nice throws.
OL is coming along there trying or maybe our DL just might be that good.
DL looks BIG & PHYSICAL.
Robinson made some nice catches you can see the speed.
Niles looks good.
Moss looks fast.
Hall is SMALL please don't complain about him not being a physical CB.
Banks is looking focused on making team as WR.
Rex came out on the field wearing a sleeve and started throwing like RG3 from the sidelines it looked funny and you could see/tell RG3 found it FUNNY as well.

This is what I saw from my untrained eye. Please forgive grammar & punctuation. If you have any questions on other players post them & If I can answer I will. There was so much going on. Had a GREAT time was well worth the drive, I beleive we are moving in the right direction.

Re: Washington Post: Redskins Training Camp Observations

Good breakdown. Have heard a lot of people saying Griff is holding on to the ball too long. Did you see that?

Re: Washington Post: Redskins Training Camp Observations

I keep hearing OG Nick Martinez's name mentioned recently. Is he playing well or is it just a slow news day? Would be nice to find a diamond in the rough on the OL. We need several.
