Redskins Preseason Predictions from our writers

With the 2018 Washington redskins season approaching, we writers here at bring you our predictions. There are several categories here.

Who is your 2018 breakout player?

Tom T.  Jonathan Allen

Tom B.  Preston Smith

Mine.  Jonathan Allen

Comment:  Allen, the 2017 first round draft pick, was injured during last season.  he was actually off to a great start before his injury.  I look for Allen to establish himself as one of the best defensive line players in the NFL this season.  Having fellow Crimson Tide alum Da’Ron Payne, the Redskins 2018 first rounder, next to him, will help tremendously.

Who is your 2018 Surprise Player?

Tom T.  RB Rob Kelly

Tom B.  Fabian Moreau

Mine.  CB Quinton Dunbar

Comment:  I think Dunbar brings his game to a new level this season.  He will have increased responsibilities and he has progressed each season, after switching to cornerback.  I can see Moreau as a choice here as well.

Most likely to fly under the radar?

Tom T.  DT Anthony Lanier

Tom B. WR Trey Quinn
