The Redskins posted their first unofficial depth chart on Sunday and Colt McCoy landed at the top of the quarterback list. Veteran Case Keenum found his name in the backup role and rookie Dwayne Haskins will be the third-string QB.
For those watching the team’s practices during training camp, the depth chart isn’t particularly surprising. McCoy has the best command of head coach Jay Gruden’s offense, and he should considering he’s been in the system for five years. The organization traded for Keenum earlier this year and Haskins is a rookie.
The story went on to say the truth is this has become a two-man race to start at QB between McCoy and Keenum. Haskins just doesn’t look ready yet, and the team needs to be mindful of his long-term development. That means not rushing the 15th overall pick into the action.
