It is hard to believe a lot of what coaches say during training camp, especially when said coaches last name is Shannahan. From what has come out of Redskins camp so far this Summer, the Redskins really do like what Royster is doing. It has come out that they don’t trust Helu and Hightower could be in the mix, but is still working his way back from injury.
Here’s what little Shanny said about Royster: “With Evan, it’s about him realizing he can be as good as he wants,” said Shanahan. Asked to talk about Roy Helu, Shanahan noted that he’s a speed back always looking for the big play before turning the conversation back to Royster’s inside running. “There is a reason he is the all-time leading rusher at Penn State,” added Shanahan, “He is a very natural runner.“
I hate to admit it, but I’m buying him as a RB4-RB5 where the risk is minimal and the reward is monstrous. The problem is by the time any of my drafts come along someone will reach higher or pay more than I am willing to.
