CSN Washington dot com. -- -- -- Redskins nation is that a -- prospect -- -- -- -- by rich Campbell from CSN Washington dot com He has seen every minute. Of every practice thus far haven't missed the minute. Not not yet know that there are so let's look let's look kind of the general sense -- first of all impressions of the defense. Clearly we haven't seen the entire defense out there because the free agents not participating. But to me it looks like that you and it's going to be much improved. Yet it's -- and it is hard to tell they've been practicing in shells you know you really can't judge a defense so they get the pads on. And really really go out it's now. But certainly -- to see some individuals feel. Jarvis Jenkins certainly yes you know it's been been showing he's he's strong he's quick he's everything and want him. And defense and then in this game in my in the little time to figure it out -- brilliantly -- -- Of the have been really good -- there. Earlier I talked about the wide receiving corps looking to me to be the toughest place to get now the numbers about some time to go. -- injuries factor into it. But tell -- about the running back position run into ranges. Just almost into like the same old story that's something they try to protect against by drafting running backs and bring it hightower and I was looking you. Well I know hightower is is interest -- you really never been. When He was in Arizona history -- He was not a full time back really is and you had won 43143. In 153. Areas. History is in his three years slowly He played all sixteen games every year. Do the math that's fewer than ten carries a game so it's a year or 11518. Point when He -- -- game -- Now. I think the -- it has to get up to speed quickly like a little of the rookie at Nebraska fourth round draft. The Redskins yet. You know the running game is something that Mike Shanahan is taken pride in so many years in -- pre season talk about that the statistics. That really tell you the story leading up to last year where their running game was outstanding year after year that to the big nosedive last year. If that running game has gone through this year in the office might be facing the same thing. Yeah exactly what's specially now I mean He had experienced quarterback Donovan McNabb last year this year either go with John that. Or go with Rex Grossman and Rex Grossman also needs a strong running game if he's gonna survive otherwise He can turn into it must be a real turnover machine out there. If you're not run and also. It -- no matter what quarterback Kellen Clemens gets his shot he's given me so. I believe over 31 in the league in rushing yards last year alone that their average wasn't bad -- averages four point three. But they found themselves behind a lot they have -- almost 65% of the time ride around in there and throw it so. You got to hand the ball off or -- productivity out of the running game. We're just gonna join us each Thursday during the season. I'd love to start the segment. Next week off with all of the head -- right now this is that we do not rehearsal Redskins nation homework. Fix the -- Who have you been who does surprises for you give me three guys are getting all three B on the defense -- -- all three B in the offense. Three guys so far training camp who caught your -- that may be commented He had not thought that much of. Out and play a lot Malcolm Kelly coming back from is -- -- in the hamstring last year He looks real real smooth out there good hands hasn't hasn't dropped much of anything. You talk about. Outside linebacker Marcus Markus white. -- seventh round draft it certainly don't expect. Expect much Atlanta yeah he's -- Smith converted from defensive end at Florida this outside linebackers certainly looks like He knows what he's doing out there. And then also go with the another seventh round draft pick truck -- he's looked in solved there in the middle. You know I think he's He was He was one pick away from me mr. irrelevant He could be pretty relevant redskins' defense this year. Those three guys are all all agree with rich but you know we get down to August 30 of September 3 who notes. We'll make the roster -- the practice squad thank you Rick and actually -- -- aren't -- form coming up. CSN Washington dot com.
