With free agency and the draft in the rearview mirror, and organized team activities and minicamps in full swing, here’s a starting-lineup projection for the Washington Redskins:
QB: Kirk Cousins: In the past two seasons combined, Cousins has thrown for 9,083 yards, 54 touchdowns and 23 interceptions.
RB: Samaji Perine: Rob Kelley ended last season as the starter, but he’ll be a complementary piece to Perine, a fourth-round power back who averaged 6.0 yards per carry at Oklahoma.
TE: Jordan Reed: In the past two years, Cousins has posted a 121.4 passer rating when targeting Reed.
LT: Trent Williams: He has made five straight Pro Bowls and remains in the discussion for the game’s best tackle.
LG: Shawn Lauvao: He’s entering the final year of his contract and struggled at times last season.
C: Spencer Long: He switched to center last offseason and ended up starting 12 games.
RG: Brandon Scherff: The fifth overall pick in 2015 reached the Pro Bowl in his second season.
RT: Morgan Moses: The Redskins recently signed the third-year starter to a five-year extension.
TE: Vernon Davis: He was a valuable part last season, with 44 catches and solid blocking.
WR: Terrelle Pryor: He surpassed 1,000 yards in his first season as a receiver and now is paired with a better quarterback.
DE: Jonathan Allen: The rookie can provide needed help against the run and an interior push on pass plays.
NT: Terrell McClain: He’s best as an end and tackle in a 3-4, but the Redskins haven’t yet settled on a true nose.
DE: Stacy McGee: He played well for Oakland last season but was limited to nine games because of an ankle injury.
OLB: Ryan Kerrigan: The steady Kerrigan has recorded a combined 34 sacks the past three seasons.
ILB: Will Compton: He’s their best linebacker handling the signals, giving him an edge to start, though Foster could play here, too.
CB: Josh Norman: Played well in 2016, but the Redskins need more game-changing plays.
FS: D.J. Swearinger: He has played mostly in the box but showed last season in Arizona he could handle the deep middle.
SS: Su’a Cravens: He played nickel/dime linebacker last season but has moved to his more natural position.
CB: Bashaud Breeland: He’s entering a contract year and must improve on his 2016 performance.
K: Dustin Hopkins: Excellent on kickoffs, but his FG percentage went from 89.3 two years ago to 81.0 last season.
P: Tress Way: Has a 46.4 yards per punt career average, but his net of 38.9 last season was a career low.
PR: Jamison Crowder: He was a dynamic returner last season, averaging 12.1 yards per return with one touchdown.
