Skins Ground Game #3 Says Scouts Inc.

PortisA recent ranking of running games by Scouts Inc. says that the Redskin ground game in 2007 is going to be very good. With a happy Clinton Portis in the fold the report says the team is going to have a solid year on the ground. Below is the recap of the Skins #3 ranking heading into 2007:

3. Washington Redskins

If San Diego has the best one-two punch in the NFL, Washington isn’t far behind. Starting RB Clinton Portis was limited to eight games last season because of a shoulder injury. That injury really opened the door for backup Ladell Betts. Betts finished the 2006 season with 1,154 yards on 245 carries. Betts, scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after the 2006 season, re-signed with Washington. His return should make for a very good training camp battle with Portis. Depth-wise, the Redskins are excellent. They also signed former Chiefs and Jets RB Derrick Blaylockand have a scatback in Rock Cartwright. Fullback Mike Sellers is a very good special teams player, blocker and pass catcher. With young QB Jason Campbell at the controls, the Redskins will rely on this deep backfield to carry the offense.
