Redskins fans will get their first look at the 2012 roster tonight to see how their new franchise QB Robert Griffin III, an up and coming defense and the other ensemble pieces stack up. Look for Griffin get his first taste of the pros with about 12- 25 reps against the Buffalo Bills.
You may want to pay attention to how the pieces surrounding Griffin step up including the offensive line, the revamped receiving corp, the 3-way competition at running back with Hightower, Helu and Royster all fighting to be the man who gets the majority of the handoffs. Coaches also want to look at what looks to be an already scary yet still improving defense anchored by the ‘Skins two dynamic linebackers Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan.
They can look forward to second-year nose tackle Barry Cofield and 2011 second-round pick DE Jarvis Jenkins, who missed all of his rookie year to injury. The audition for starting free safety is wide open and probably won’t be solidified until we get closer to week 1.
