3 Lesser Known Players Who Could Crush The Redskins

I. Clemons - II. Wagner - III. Sherman

Three guys that Washington Redskins fans may not have heard of, but will find out about first hand on Sunday...

I.  Chris Clemons – Remember him?  Few do.  He played a total of 20 games for the Redskins during the 2004 and 2005 seasons where he recorded a whopping 5 sacks.  After failed attempts with the Raiders and Eagles it seems he has found a home in Seattle. Ever since he signed with the team in 2010 he has registered 11 sacks each season. This year he hit his career high with 11.5 sacks and will be looking for more come Sunday vs RGIII.

II.  Bobby Wagner – Wagner is in his rookie season out of Utah State and he is already turning heads. The linebacker leads this dynamic defense in tackles with 140 on the season breaking Seattle's previous rookie record of 136. In addition to that number he has added 2 sacks and 3 interceptions this season. However, Wagner will have his hands full on Sunday trying to figure out the read-option.

III. Richard Sherman – Lesser known?  Sort of.  Sherman's career as an NFL cornerback has been all about going under the radar. He was drafted in the 5th round of the 2011 NFL Draft.  33 other cornerbacks were taken before him.  And with a possible looming suspension no longer a threat, the Redskins are going to have to deal with one of the league top CB's. He has 8 interceptions and 3 forced fumbles on the season and is one of this years biggest Pro Bowl snubs.
