At the beginning of training camp, Redskins HC Zorn acknowledged Devin Thomas was ahead of Malcolm Kelly in the competition for the starting flanker spot. After two preseason games, however, Kelly appears to have leaped over Thomas.
The other day, Zorn said both second-year wideouts and veteran Antwaan Randle el still are competing for the job. But Randle El is better suited to the slot-receiver role, so the battle to be the No. 2 wide receiver is between Thomas and Kelly.
Kelly has had impressive moments in each of the first two preseason games while Thomas has just kind of been on the field. And then there's rookie wideout Marko Mitchell, who was the offensive star of camp (rookie strong-side LB/DE Brian Orakpo had that distinction on defense) and scored the Redskins' first touchdown of the preseason.
