This year, we’re going to look at the division again, but we’re gonna try to ramp things up a bit by adding some film review to some of the position group reviews.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="gZTiYV">Click here to read previous Ranking the NFC East articles<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="q4TsTa">This article has 4 sections:A very brief positional overview of where each of the 4 teams is at with the safety position.A simple film review of 5 of the top safeties in the NFC East this season: Landon Collins, Xavier Woods, Rodney McLeod, Malcolm Jenkins, and Jabrill Peppers.A list of the top of the depth chart (4-5 players) for each of the 4 teams in the division.Some poll questions focused on identifying the best safety in the division, as well as the teams with the strongest and weakest safety group in the division.Let’s start with the brief review.Positional overviewThe biggest change at the safety position in the NFC East came with Landon Collins jumping from the Giants to the Redskins in free agency, with the G-men bringing in Jabrill Peppers from Cleveland as part of the OBJ trade to replace the Giants’ former 2nd round pick.Individually, Collins, entering his 5th NFL season, and Peppers, entering his 3rd, are each impressive players, however the most interesting safety tandem in the division may be in Philadelphia where Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod have been playing together for 3 seasons, having both come to the Eagles as veteran free agents - Jenkins coming from the Saints and McLeod from the Rams.In Dallas, things are more unsettled.I thought I would quote this early roster projection published about a month ago in The Star:One might use a similar set of ideas to describe the safety position in Washington, where only Landon Collins is a known starter, with Montae Nicholson the early favorite to be the second starter.But the challenges at the position for all 4 teams are real, and getting increasingly intense.The receivers in the NFC East are faster this season than they were a year ago with veteran free agent Desean Jackson returning to the Eagles, Paul Richardson coming back healthy for the Redskins, and speedy Terry McLaurin being drafted in the 3rd round.In a division loaded with powerful and explosive running backs, the task facing NFCE safeties in 2019 is only getting harder.Speed, sure tackling and flexibility to defend both the run and the pass will be keys to success at the position in 2019.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="nSTkAU">The film room - Frye’s Film breakdownIn this section, we’ll offer a look at a few of the top players in the division, with an analysis of their styles, skills and limitations written by Joshua Frye, who has volunteered to help me with this series.As a Skins fan, Joshua says that he grew up with a team that wasn’t winning on the field, and that this lack of success made him look for something other than Superbowls to keep him connected.He focused on the draft. So, even from a young age,Josh watched college football, doing his best to evaluate players, and he read extensively — books written by coaches and personnel evaluators.Josh says that he would love to become a professional scout someday.Let’s see what Joshua thinks about some of the NFC East’s top quarterbacks. He will look at 5 players, in order:Landon CollinsXavier WoodsMalcolm JenkinsRodney McLeodJabrill PeppersLandon Collins, Washington RedskinsLandon Collins, who was a New York Giant for his first four years in the league, was signed by the Redskins to a 6-year, $84m contract this off-season.The 25-year-old is an aggressive and intimidating safety. At 6’0 and 222 lbs he possess a thick frame to be a presence in the run game. He does not have elite speed to sit back in single high all the time, but he has enough to make plays in coverage. Here Collins is in the flat curl zone, and does a nice job breaking on the ball and making the tackle to allow minimum yards after catch.You can see what a solid tackler he is.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="oHeIPe">Here we see Collins make an excellent play on the back end by reading the QB and coming up with an interception.While many people think of Collins as a “box” safety, he bristles at the suggestion and insists that he is a capable defender against the pass as well as the run.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="eepvas">On this play against the Steelers, Collins does a nice job at keeping contain and stopping LeVeon Bell from cutting this run back for a big gain.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="0qSRlW">Xavier Woods, Dallas CowboysIn today’s NFL there really are 3 safety positions: (a) someone with center field responsibilities, (b) a big hitting intimidating presence, and (c) someone who can come up and play man in the slot and on TEs. Woods really came into his own this past season with the Cowboys, which provides them with the ability to not panic with regard to the safety position in 2019. Woods really shined in 2018, only missing 9 tackles all year, and providing good coverage inside and on the back end. It will be interesting to see if he keeps trending up this season. Here we see Woods make a good break on the throw and deliver a crushing blow to Adam Humphries.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="7IhQDD">Here is a great instinctive play by Woods, and he nearly came away with a pick-6. This is a young and instinctive player - definitely someone people should keep their eyes on.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="NdfZ29">Malcolm Jenkins, Philadelphia EaglesMalcolm Jenkins has improved his performance since arriving to Philly from New Orleans in 2014. He’s been manning the back end of the defense for his entire career so he has given up a number of touchdowns with the Eagles, but he also has 11 Interceptions in 5 years in the NFC East, and has been effective against the run as well! I personally think he’s one of the most — possibly the most — well-rounded of the safeties in the division.Here, against the Redskins, you see Jenkins jump the route being run by Vernon Davis, and grabbing a pick-6. Those ball hawking skills were lacking with the Saints, but plays like this have become more normal for Jenkins now that he’s in Philadelphia, where he’s being asked to do more.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="ipA3ix">Of course we’ve all seen this. It’s not against the run https://www.theredskinslockerroom.com/authentic-dwayne-haskins-jersey , but it is a good example of the physical part of Malcolm Jenkins’ game! I guess playing next to Roman Harper for the beginning of your career helps with that.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="boB0eJ">Rodney McLeod, Philadelphia EaglesRodney Mcleod doesn’t have elite speed, but from the time he entered the league he made plays against the run with the Rams. Similar to his teammate Jenkins, in his two seasons with the Eagles, it seems that McLeod has meshed well and improved his play. He creates turnovers with both interceptions and forced fumbles, and provides another physical presence for Philly. In my opinion, McLeod and Jenkins form the best safety tandem in the division. Although it’s not a good throw, we still can see the physical side of McLeod’s game here. Even if it had been accurate this would have always been a very difficult an impossible catch with this hit.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="BKY2mh">Here we see McLeod sitting in his zone in the back of the end zone reading Bradford and the rush. He sees that the QB needs to make a decision, and, as the rush is coming in, he’s already breaking on Theilen to come up with the interception.This is smart football.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="k9UtjY">Jabrill Peppers, New York GiantsThere will always be a lot of hype when it comes to Peppers. Any time you’re a safety that is practically 6 feet, weigh over 200 pounds and run in the 4.4s you’re going to generate a lot of buzz. And the Giants brought him in to fill Landon Collins’ shoes. Peppers is a better athlete than Collins in that he is faster and that both players are roughly around the same size. Peppers showed improved play this past season, being more of a hybrid player, which allowed him to showcase how versatile his skill set is. Here we see Peppers playing deep.He makes an excellent read and breaks on the throw for the interception. It’s ironic, I guess, that in my introduction to the player, my focus was on how he is gonna replace Collins, and the first film clip is of him playing deep.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="Rsel0R">Here Peppers is lined up 3 yards from the TE and recognizes the slide route coming — he makes the correct read and good tackle!<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="f5VOww">A look at the top of the depth chart for each teamOf course, no position group consists of just one star player.In a sport that is as physically demanding as football, one in which player injuries are common, the unit depth is as important a factor as the skill of the star players.Here, we’ll take a look at the top of the depth chart for each team — the pool of players from which the ones on the final 53 seem likely to be chosen.Not all the players listed will make the team, and I might easily miss — especially for the Redskins’ division rivals — players who will make the Week 1 roster, but this list should give some idea of the relative depth of the four positional groups.CowboysXavier WoodsGeorge IlokaJeff HeathDonavan WilsonKavon FrazierEaglesRodney McLeodMalcolm JenkinsAndrew SendejoBlake CountessTre SullivanGiantsJabrill PeppersAntoione BetheaMichael Thomas Sean ChandlerKamrin MooreRedskinsLandon CollinsMontae NicholsonDeshazor EverettTroy Apke WASHINGTON (AP) — This is what it’s come to for the Washington Redskins: Their fourth quarterback of a once-promising, now-lost season, Josh Johnson, will be making his first NFL start since 2011 and spent time playing the “Madden NFL” video game to try to pick up something about his new teammates.“I learned their names, first and foremost,” Johnson said with a smile.He will be playing the most important position on the field next Sunday when the Redskins, who have gone from 6-3 and first place in the NFC East to 6-7 thanks to a four-game losing streak, play at the Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9), who might be the most disappointing team in the entire league.Between Washington’s Johnson and Jacksonville’s Cody Kessler, the two QBs have a combined career mark of 1-14 as NFL starters. Johnson is 0-5 and hadn’t even thrown a pass in a game in seven years until coming in to replace Mark Sanchez in the second half of Washington’s 40-16 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.“I’ve been a fourth-stringer, a third-stringer. I’ve been so many other things,” the 32-year-old Johnson said.He’s been signed and discarded by nearly half of the league: The Redskins are the 13th team that’s brought him in, although only the second for which he actually was allowed to attempt a throw in a regular-season game (Tampa Bay was the other).So why has he bounced around so much with little game time to show for it?“He can be hot and cold throwing the ball. He can throw a great ball, then throw one in the dirt, then throw a great ball,” coach Jay Gruden said. “The (inconsistency), probably, is what people see.”In Washington, Johnson essentially is the backup to the backup’s backup.Sanchez only got to start against New York because Colt McCoy broke his right leg during the prior game; McCoy was starting only because Alex Smith broke HIS right leg two games before that.Add it all up, and Johnson’s is Gruden’s No. 4 starting QB in a span of five games.Johnson was signed last Wednesday; a week before facing the Giants, he was playing in a charity basketball event at home in California.“It was a good test for my cardio,” Johnson said. “I actually got my body ready.”Entering Sunday after the score was 40-0, he went 11 for 16 for 195 yards, with a 79-yard touchdown pass to Jamison Crowder and one interception against the Giants.Johnson also ran seven times for 45 yards with a TD.“ a little bit, avoided some pressure, moved around, got to the second, third progressions on a few throws, despite just getting here,” Gruden said. “So I was impressed with his poise, mostly, and his ability to maneuver in the pocket.”NOTES: Gruden said TE Jordan Reed, who leads the team in catches and receiving yards, could be done for the season because of a strained toe muscle. “We’ll see if it’s one week, two weeks or the rest of the year,” Gruden said. “We’re not sure yet.” … WR Josh Doctson is in the concussion protocol. … LB Shaun Dion Hamilton has a shoulder injury. … Gruden declined to address a report that Smith has had multiple operations on his leg, saying: “I cannot confirm anything right now. I told you I was going to be hush-hush on this deal until Alex was ready to talk about it.”
