Kerby Long

Postby andyjens89 » Wed Jun 13, 2012 8:36 am

As it currently stands, Pierre Garcon, Leonard Hankerson, Josh Morgan and Santana Moss are locks to make the 53-man roster at wide receiver. Last season, the team carried six receivers on the active roster which leaves two spots up for grabs among a handful of talented, if inconsistent, young players.

Undrafted receiver and returner Kerby Long could play himself into a roster spot in place of Brandon Banks.

Long doesn't have the distinguished college numbers that Banks entered the NFL with, but he has better size and comparable speed. There were times last season that Banks looked to be running for his life as opposed to running for yardage, which is hardly the way you want a returned to approach his craft.

What Long lacks in numbers out of JMU, he can make up for with a display of superior vision to go along with his speed.

Who the heck is this guy? I've never heard of him and he's not listed on the roster, yet this site said he could be a surprise player to watch. Well he would definitely be a surprise since he isn't even on the team

Apparently mystery man runs a 4.35. Is the webmaster at redskins.com asleep?

I find a bunch of April 28th posts. I found this from the 29th:

He was at rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. He wasn't signed.

He'd be just as "unproductive" as Banks if his TD's are negated by stupid penalties...
