Ryan Kerrigan: The “Other” Washington Redskins Emerging Superstar

When it comes to young, transcendent players for the Washington Redskins, the majority of the football world's attention is focused upon the exploits of second-year quarterback sensation Robert Griffin III and deservedly so; injuries aside, he's a spectacular talent.

However, there's another up and coming Redskin who plays on the defensive side of the football who is also poised to skyrocket into the circles of the NFL elite this season. Third-year linebacker Ryan Kerrigan is a legitimate stud who is on the verge of becoming one of the game's best defensive players.

  • I think once again there is a little overvaluing of Skin players by their fans and media.
  • Six forced fumbles and two picks returned for touchdowns really stands out to me. He's only twenty five. He has a lot of learning to do. He is already a force in the league. I've liked this kid since he came into the league.
