Redskins planning to start Ereck Flowers at left guard

Ereck Flowers bottomed out as an offensive attack so that the Washington Redskins will try him out as a starting guard.
After being selected No. 9 total in 2015, Flowers struggled mightily as a left tackle with the New York Giants, grading out as one of the worst blockers in the entire league. Big Blue tried to move him to right tackle last year before eventually giving up and cutting on him after five games and two starts. Flowers began seven matches and developed with all the Jacksonville Jaguars. The turnstile was not improved by the change of scenery.
Redskins assistant head coach Bill Callahan, who also coaches the offensive line, stated during minicamp that Washington plans to start Flowers in left guard, where he considers the former bust could flourish.
??? Team fits for top staying FAs
??? Ranking deepest position groups
??? NFL triplets rankings: Who is No. 1?
??? NFC West primer: Camp questions ??? Rank: Could Redskins surprise?
“I see a lot of potential when we’ve moved tackles inside,” Callahan said, noting former backup lineman Ty Nsekhe’s occasional moves to protect as an example, through the Washington Post.
Callahan has earned the benefit of the doubt among the top O-line coaches in the NFL over time, but turning a busted tackle to a guard is easier said than done. It requires energy to play with the interior and a skillset.
Callahan believes Flowers projects just fine for your transfer.
“I think that it gives us dimensions, it gives us power, I think these are really good traits for your running attack and pass security,” Callahan continued. “He’s long, he is square, obviously he can play at the brief area so those are things we sort of identified during free agency that we liked and we’re trying to fit him into that manner. So it’s been a work in progress, we have a long ways to go yet, but he has made a wonderful transition.”
The move to guard did not find much testing throughout the spring offseason program. With Trent Williams hanging out and backup Geron Christian recovering from knee surgery, Flowers had to spend additional time filling in at tackle. If Williams reports to training camp, but the plan would be to slide Flower to left guard and hope Callahan will work his magic.
