Through two days of open practice with the Washington Football Team, Bryce Love has certainly looked quite promising in individual drills and full-squad work. The offensive backfield still needs to be sorted out — Antonio Gibson is someone else who could be primed for a lot of usage now that Derrius Guice is gone — but as HC Ron Rivera described, Love could very well carve out a huge role right away.
"He's a guy that's multi-dimensional," Rivera continued. "At Stanford, he didn't have to do a lot of routes and pass catching, but he's very capable and we're getting to see that. This is a guy that could be an every-down back for you. He's an explosive, dynamic player."
Even the story indicated it may be too much and too early to have all this love for Love. But he's certainly someone to watch. We continue to favor Gibson as the back to own on Washington. We rank Gibson 32nd among our RBs. Veterans like Peterson and Barber could see their share of early-season work until the younger players are up to speed.
