Today we can officially say we’re a quarter of the way closer to the season than when we started!
Coming in at our best #75, we have our second straight Washington Redskins lineman, the man directly to the left of Morgan Moses, right guard Brandon Scherff. The two actually competed for the starting right tackle spot in 2015, which was given to Moses, as the team decided Scherff was more suited for an interior position.
Scherff’s rookie season didn’t quite live up to expectations, possibly due to the position change, but he finished 2015 as one of the lowest rated starting guards in the league. He stepped his game up in a big way in 2016, shutting down defenders all season.
Scherff has yet to miss a game in 32 starts, and continues to develop into an excellent all-around blocker. Look for him to continue to improve alongside Moses, as the Redskins line just keeps getting stronger.
