Jordan Reed has already showed his ability as a dynamic threat in the passing game.
Reading the previous slide regarding Amerson's status as "most likely to succeed," many of you no doubt politely offered Jordan Reed as a viable alternative for that title.
Reed has formidable talent, and while he has recovered from the concussion that ended his rookie season, there's a lingering concern that over his future, especially with head injuries in his college history.
That's really likely to be the only thing that can stop him this year, however. While he's not an unknown quantity anymore, the improvements across Washington's receiving corps will actually leave him better placed to get the ball.
Gruden loves getting his tight ends the ball, and with offensive coordinator Sean McVay's past as the tight ends coach, the stage is set for a big year from Reed. Moving him around last year created mismatches in a variety of areas, and Reed's size and speed were often too much for defenders.
Comparisons to Aaron Hernandez were rife as he came out of college, and Reed's ability on the field can certainly match that of the disgraced New England Patriot.
There's a lot to be excited about here. Reed hauled in a lot of impressive catches from poorly-thrown balls in 2013, which meant he became a go-to target for Robert Griffin III as he struggled with his accuracy.
Reed's got some growing to do as a blocker, but he's shown flashes of ability here too, so it's understandable how enthusiastic McVay was when he spoke to CSN Washington.
