  • prospects that could contribute to the Redskins"LJ Scott Deshazor Everett Jersey , RBSchool: Michigan State | Conference: Big TenCollege Experience: Senior | Age: 22Height / Weight: 6-0 / 227 lbsProjected Draft Status: 4th - 6th roundNFL Comparison: Jordan Howard, RB, Philadelphia Eagles College Statistics Player OverviewThough LJ Scott was unable to reach at least one thousand yards in a season during his career, he still is one of the better backs to come through Michigan State. Scott ranks ninth in school history in yards and carries, 12th in rushing touchdowns, 13th in total touchdowns, and 18th in all-purpose yards. His final season as a Spartan, unfortunately, was injury plagued, only playing five games on the season. As a pro football player Scott is looking to bounce back from a disappointing finish at Michigan State and be an added boost to a teams backfield. Strengths Decisive runner with good burstVery good and quick feet for back of his sizeHas good jump cut near line of scrimmage, capable of making first man miss consistentlyVery good pass catcher, and route running is above average for running backWeaknesses Often times does not play up to his size Sammy Baugh Jersey , lacks power for his frame. Issues may become big problems in situational football (goal line or short down and distances).Must improve pad level, struggles getting low and getting extra yardsBall security may be an issue, lost seven of ten career fumbles (2015-2017)Let’s see his work (RB, #3)How he would fit on the RedskinsLJ Scott has the ability to become an immediate impact player, but not in the sense of a power back role. For reasons noted, he has to improve his playing strength in order to become a more respected power runner as a pro. However, he does have quick feet, vision, burst, and hands to become a solid role player in the pros. Scott is a back that has the potential to fill in for Chris Thompson down the road if his development continues on the pro level. He has to improve his ability to pass protect, but if Scott can learn the role of a third-down back and grow to play in his frame, he is a back that can compliment Derruis Guice really well as they continue to gain NFL experience. Week 1 is in the rear-view mirror Earnest Byner Jersey , and the Cincinnati Bengals are set to host the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night to kick off week 2.<em>Last Week: 8-7-1</em>Home teams shown in bold. Odds taken from Odds Shark.Baltimore (-1) vs. CincinnatiKeep an eye on AJ Green, who has averaged 99.3 receiving yards in his last seven games against the Ravens. In that time, has has caught six touchdowns.<em>Pick: Cincinnati (+1)</em>Atlanta (-6) vs. CarolinaMatt Ryan played pretty poorly against the Eagles on Opening Night, and the losses of Keanu Neil and Deion Jones are really going to hurt the Falcons long term. However, Atlanta & Ryan will bounce back this week in a fairly important early-season NFC South duel.<em>Pick: Atlanta (-6)</em>New Orleans (-9) vs. ClevelandI’m all about the bounce back narrative this week. New Orleans got embarrassed at home against an underdog last week. It won’t happen again.<em>Pick: New Orleans (-9)</em>Houston (-2) vs. TennesseeThe recovery process for Deshaun Watson off a torn ACL will definitely take some time, especially behind a poor offensive line. He looked pretty rusty and tentative against the Pats in Week 1.<em>Pick: Tennessee (+2)</em>Washington (-5.5) vs. IndianapolisAlex Smith looked solid last week in Arizona, and this is another favorable matchup for him as the Redskins look to start the season 2-0.<em>Pick: Washington (-5.5)</em>Pittsburgh (-4.5) vs. Kansas CityPatrick Mahomes looked fantastic against the Bolts in Carson last week. However, Big Ben is a totally different QB at home and should put up some numbers against the Chiefs‘ secondary.<em>Pick: Pittsburgh (-4.5)</em>Los Angeles Chargers (-7) vs. BuffaloJosh Allen time in Buffalo!<em>Pick: Los Angeles Chargers (-7)</em>New York Jets (-3) vs. MiamiJets haven’t been a home favorite since December 5, 2016 against the Colts, per Odds Shark. The Lions get knocked down a peg in their home opener.<em>Pick: Miami (+3)</em>Green Bay (-1.5) vs. MinnesotaMan, I have a hard time betting against Aaron Rodgers after what he did last week. If him & Davante Adams (shoulder) were near 100%, I would probably go Packers. However Dustin Hopkins Jersey , the Vikings have so much talent that I have trouble seeing a hobbled Rodgers scoring enough off them.<em>Pick: Minnesota (+1.5)</em>Philadelphia (-3) vs. Tampa BayIf the NFL season ended after Week 1, Ryan Fitzpatrick would be NFL MVP. But it doesn’t.<em>Pick: Philadelphia (-3)</em>Los Angeles Rams (-13) vs. ArizonaRams, off a short week, facing a team that got embarrassed a week earlier? Seems like the ingredients for a tight game.<em>Pick: Arizona (+13)</em>San Francisco (-6) vs. DetroitIf the Lions don’t at least keep this one close, the grumblings about Matt Patricia in Detroit will only continue to grow louder and louder.<em>Pick: Detroit (+6)</em>New England (EV) vs. JacksonvilleTo me it comes down to: Tom Brady or Blake Bortles? I’ll always take Brady.<em>Pick: New England (EV)</em>Denver (-6) vs. OaklandI don’t know why so many people wrote off the Broncos from AFC West contention. Case Keenum will limit turnovers on the offensive side & keep them in a lot of games this year.<em>Pick: Denver (-6)</em>Dallas (-3) vs. New York GiantsThis one should be low-scoring, and close.<em>Pick: New York Giants (+3)</em>Chicago (-3) vs. SeattleThe Bears surprised a whole lot of people with their performance in the 1st half last week, and Khalil Mack looked tremendous. If Trubisky can show improvement in year 2, they could continue surprise some folks.<em>Pick: Chicago (-3)</em>
