While we already have early impressions, it will be about three or four years before analysts are able to fully gauge the Redskins’ 2011 rookie class. Here are the facts for this group so far:
11-of-13 rookies have played.
Six have started for the team this season.
They’ve accounted for 1,141 yards of the team’s 4,553 total offense.
They’ve accounted for three of the teams 23 touchdowns, including the only score on defense.
They’ve also scored the team’s only two-point conversion.
They’ve account for 88 of the team’s 977 tackles, 10 for a loss.
They’ve account for 8.5 of the team’s 34 sacks.
On special teams:
They’ve account for 14 tackles, a forced fumble, one return, and a kicked down inside the 20.
From this laundry list, it’s fair to say that they’ve performed well with their opportunities this season, experience that will inevitably jump-start their development down the road.
