It looks like Reed Doughty will be put at safety, so the Redskins might still be looking for some depth at cornerback. Eubanks is in the small, speedy CB mold. He shows a knack for being able to find the end zone. In his junior year at Southern Miss he scored TD's on a 94-yard kickoff return, a 27-yard fumble return and on an 80-yard runback of an interception.
Espy finished top five all time at Ole Miss in all purpose yards (third at 3,240), receptions (fifth with 136), punt return yards (fourth with 716). In drills before his senior season a year ago he was clocked at 4.31 in the forty. His main competition would seem to be Rich Parson, also a WR and returner, for a spot on the practice squad as the backup return man.
Our Scout.com report on Manupuna called him, "an intense competitor who makes football a priority, he is a self-starter who finds a way to be productive. His quickness and ability to play with leverage gives him possibilities as a three-technique lineman." Manupuna will have to be a productive self starter if he is to survive in a very crowded picture at defensive tackle that includes draftees Kedric Golston and Anthony Montgomery.
Mineo appeared to be headed towards a place on someone's draft board after an all-WAC junior campaign, but an ankle injury he suffered in the early going in 2005 sent his draft stock dropping. As with Manupuna, he faces a tough challenge to make the squad with the defensive tackle spot flush with both quality and quantity.
The Redskins released LB's Jashon Sykes and Nick McNeil and WR LaShaun Ward.
