Terrelle Pryor is WR1 on the first Washington depth chart

AP

Washington lost its two starting receivers from a year ago to free agency. It’s No. 1 receiver is now a guy who has only one full year at the position.

To little surprise given his potential and performance to date, free-agent arrival Terrelle Pryor has received the “WR1” designation in the initial unofficial depth chart of the year.

The WR2 designation belongs to 2016 first-rounder Josh Doctson, and WR3 goes to Jamison Crowder.

With Jordan Reed still on PUP, the starting tight end is Vernon Davis. He’s backed up by Niles Paul.

At running back, the pecking order goes Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson, and rookie Samaje Perine. Matt Jones continues to have the odd-man-out feel at No. 4.

The most intriguing name on the defensive depth is Phil Taylor. The 2011 first-round pick of the Browns is listed as the starting nose tackle after two full years out of football.

Junior Galette, after two seasons lost to torn Achilles tendons, is the backup at weakside linebacker, behind Ryan Kerrigan.

And here’s where I saw it’s all unofficial and meaningless at this point of the year. But it shows plenty about the shape the team is taking thus far into camp.

  1. Phil Taylor was a beast before his knee blew out. Hopefully the time off has them back in shape and it would be a solid pickup. Glad to him back in the league.

    “Pryor needs to be commended for making a position change and thriving.”

    The position change was made for him because he didn’t have a future as a QB. He should thank Hue Jackson every day of his life that he’s still in the NFL and making money. I give him credit for being able to be a good WR after being a QB, but QB’s should already know every pass pattern there is to know since they’ve got to throw to a bunch of different routes every snap. The only question about him really was his hands at the position, but I think he put that to rest. Once he gets a couple more years of experience at the position full time he should be extremely good with his natural talent and physical gifts. Just a matter of keeping his head screwed on right.

    the ouchita were slave owners.

  4. The Browns dropped the ball on this one. They had a home grown/hometown budding superstar and the cap space to keep him but they got penny wise and pound foolish. Pryor is going to explode in Washington. He has a very good qb throwing him the ball and good supporting pass game weapons around him in Reed, Crowder and Thompson out of the backfield. Expect 90 catches, 1,500 yards and 10tds from Pryor in that offense.

    Dear Redskins,

    Please keep the 49ers franchise QB Kirk Cousins healthy for his last rental in Washington.

    Dear 49ers,

    Your thirstiness is adorable. You haven’t even played one game under your new head coach, and you’ve determined he’s the next Bill Walsh and Cousins is your Joe Montana in waiting.

    Best,

    Redskins

  6. We have a Sunday hole-in-the wall here called the Freewinds. On Sunday, the place is packed (well, packed for the Rez) with about 60 football fans. Within those fans, are twelve or so fans of the team from Washington DC, the REDSKINS. None of us are offended by the name of a freaking football team, and neither should you. We’re red-skinned, not thin-skinned, and proud of it. I don’t even like the Redskins, but will say Hail to the Redskins all day and not feel degraded. Enough is enough.

    You could say this same thing with how the Redskins have lowballed Kirk Cousins 2 straight years.
