Bacarri Rambo pulling away with starting safety spot at Washington Redskins camp

Washington Redskins rookie Bacarri Rambo was expected to compete with DeJon Gomes and Reed Doughty for the starting free safety position, but it looks like the first-year player is pulling away from the competition and establishing himself as the No. 1 option for the team.

From the Washington Post:

Rambo, a sixth-round pick out of Georgia, has taken every first-team snap at free safety. Amerson, a second-rounder out of North Carolina State, has taken more first-team snaps than any cornerback in camp — sharing the field with veterans DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson at times and other days playing in place of them. Meanwhile, Thomas — a fourth-rounder out of Fresno State — opened camp low on the depth chart but has begun to climb the ranks.

With Rambo as a starter, and Amerson as the Washington Post reports, the Redskins have some young blood at the position that will only help them get better for the future.

Add in the star sophomore quarterback and the Redskins are a team that you cannot deny is rapidly climbing the NFL ladder.
