2012 Draft Pick (not RG3) Who'll Have Biggest Impact This Year

Which Redskins draft pick, other than our starting QB will have the biggest impact this year?

Will it be Richard Crawford making an impact on special teams?

Will it be Alfred Morris emerging as Shanahan's latest sleeper stud back?

Will it be Adam Gettis or McRib shoring up the interior?

Someone else?

With Helu foot issue keeping him back...Alfred Morris could be the next sleeper RB.

Tough call. I think if Helu is suffering from a flared up Achilles all season, Morris has the greater impact. If the Line remains an issue and Licht or Chester is out for an extended period of time, Gettis or McRib become factors. This year is harder to decide more so than others because it felt like our entire draft, aside from RG3 were depth or developmental players.

I went with Morris. I think at some point he'll get the hot hand this year, which means Shanny will give him the rock. Morris' and Helu's styles are completely different, so even if Helu is healthy I don't see him cancelling out Morris' pt.

What makes it harder to decide is that as Mbedner said, other than RG3 the rest of the draft is mainly developmental players. There's no Hank or Jenkins that we could expect an immediate impact from like last year.

Gotta go with Morris right now given Hightower's and Helu's situations

No idea why but my gut says Keenan Robinson.

Whats the deal? I haven't been following as closely this year as I had in years past.

I voted for LeRibeus because I think he'll be forced into action a lot this year.

Long term, Keenan Robinson. I've heard him mentioned as our next London Fletcher. That's a big task but the coaches think he's fit for it.

I wonder if Gettis continues to improve in the next coming games if he challenges Hurt's spot for the injuried Kory L? I thought Gettis played well for his first start last week.

I joined the Morris Chorus. I think he will be the latest in a long line of no-name Shanny running backs to make an impact.

I say either Compton or LeRibeus. Could see them both starting by mid-season

I think Morris is our starting RB by season's end based on getting a chance because of the dings and then he'll seize the job permanently.

Once fully healthy, I could see Kory sliding over to C and Montgomery being benched. Then Rib at LG

I don't see that scenaro. Montgomery is a solid Center, why shake that up? My prediction of LeRibeus playing was based more on attrition, but I think he'll be great when he gets the chance.

Hey guys been a fan of the site for a couple years now, and finally decided to post. Surprised to see all the love for Morris (4.67 40) when the one big criticism of Royster is his speed (4.65)
