The Washington Post expects RG Brandon Scherff to land a "lucrative deal" next offseason.
Scherff is signed the next two seasons, but his 2019 option is $12.5 million. The Redskins don't plan to extend Scherff at his current cost-controlled $705K salary but aren’t going to risk him playing out his contract year. A two-time Pro Bowler, Scherff should push for the $13.3M annually Jacksonville gave Andrew Norwell. Jul 1 - 12:16 PM

Date:

Redskins exercised RG Brandon Scherff's fifth-year option for 2019.

This is as no-brainer as a move can get. The No. 5 overall pick in 2015, Scherff is one of the best young guards in the league and already has two Pro Bowls under his belt. Washington will likely look to extend Scherff next spring.

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff (MCL) is expected to miss Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Trent Williams (knee) will also be unavailable for the Redskins, though Josh Norman should play after missing the last two games with a broken rib. Washington's offensive line is about as beat up as it gets with Scherff, Williams and Spencer Long all likely to sit in Week 8. None of this is good news for Kirk Cousins, who took four sacks in Monday night's loss to Philadelphia.

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff (MCL) has yet to be ruled out for Week 8.

Scherff has a Grade 2 sprain. Despite coach Jay Gruden's optimism, he seems likely to miss at least one game.

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff suffered an MCL injury Monday night against the Eagles.

Scherff had his knee rolled into in the third quarter. The injury looked bad, but an MRI on Tuesday should tell the story. LT Trent Williams was in and out of the game all night while RT Morgan Moses sprained both of his ankles. Washington may need to find some offensive line help this week.

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff has a sprained AC joint.

Scherff got banged up in Sunday's loss to the Lions, but ultimately remained in the game. He'll probably be good to go for Week 8 against the Bengals.

Coach Jay Gruden said it's "pretty safe" to say that No. 5 overall pick Brandon Scherff's long-term position is right guard.

Scherff was drafted to be Washington's starting right tackle, but the Redskins view him as a better fit on the inside. OL coach Bill Callahan wants to use Scherff as a Zack Martin-type interior pass blocker. Second-year OT Morgan Moses will bookend Trent Williams after playing just 131 snaps as a rookie.

The Washington Post reports the Redskins are serious about potentially kicking No. 5 overall pick Brandon Scherff inside to guard.

Scherff has reportedly looked "more comfortable" at guard than tackle. OL coach Bill Callahan believes Scherff could make a Zack Martin-type impact inside. Martin, of course, was a first-team All Pro for Callahan's Cowboys last season. The idea is all good and well, but Morgan Moses would be a massive leap of faith at right tackle. It's too early to rule out Scherff bookending Trent Williams in Week 1.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden says it's a "possibility" that first-round OT Brandon Scherff could begin the year at right guard.

Scherff has been penciled in at right tackle, but the Redskins may apparently begin the year with Morgan Moses opposite Trent Williams, kicking Scherff inside. A power blocker with huge hands, Scherff could be a mauler on the inside. We're still betting Scherff opens the year as Washington's right tackle.

Redskins signed No. 5 overall pick RT Brandon Scherff to a four-year contract.

The Redskins' 10-man draft class is now under contract. The Redskins passed on USC DT Leonard Williams to select Scherff, who will slide in at right tackle as a bookend to stud left tackle Trent Williams.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the team plans to start Brandon Scherff at right tackle.

Tom Compton and Tyler Polumbus split time at right tackle last season. The Redskins also figure to upgrade on RG Chris Chester later in the draft. With Washington committed to Robert Griffin III for 2015, the Redskins need to protect their injury-prone quarterback. Overhauling the line seems like the best way to do that. Alfred Morris will also benefit from Scherff's presence.

Redskins selected Iowa T/G Brandon Scherff with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Scherff (6'5/319) made 36 starts for the Hawkeyes, earning the 2014 Outland Trophy as the nation's top offensive lineman. Although some draftniks have ticketed him for guard, NFL Films' Greg Cosell has likened Scherff's tape to Jake Long's coming out of college. A physical power blocker with enough movement skills to function in any scheme, Scherff is a consistent block finisher and the most technically sound O-Lineman in the 2015 class. Scherff has adequate arm length (33 3/8") and huge hands (11"), and impressed in pre-draft workouts with a 5.05 forty and 32 1/2-inch vertical. We suspect Scherff will play right tackle in Washington, bookending LT Trent Williams with LG Shawn Lauvao, C Kory Lichtensteiger, and RG Chris Chester on the interior.

Appearing on SportsCenter Thursday, ESPN's Todd McShay mentioned Iowa T/G Brandon Scherff and Miami T/G Ereck Flowers as potential draft picks for the Rams at No. 10 overall.

McShay said to expect a "run on offensive linemen earlier than many people expect." He indicated that the Rams are higher on Scherff, but could view Flowers as a fallback target. On paper, St. Louis has the weakest offensive line in football. Both Scherff and Flowers are pro-ready maulers in the run game. We do not believe Scherff will be on the board when the Rams pick, however.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "most teams" think the Falcons will target an offensive lineman in the first round of Thursday night's draft.

While most expect the Falcons to look for pass-rush help at No. 8 overall, Rapoport mentions Atlanta trading back and seeking a blocker. The Falcons are just as needy on the offensive line with holes at left guard and right tackle and last year's No. 6 overall pick LT Jake Matthews struggling badly as a rookie.

In a poll of 19 NFL personnel men, 13 voted Iowa's Brandon Scherff as this year's top draft-eligible offensive lineman.

He easily beat out Stanford LT Andrus Peat, who came in second with three first-place votes. LSU T/G La'El Collins, Texas A&M LT Cedric Ogbuehi, and Florida LT D.J. Humphries each received one first-place vote. In this particular poll, the scouts were not required to specify a position for the offensive linemen. A left tackle at Iowa with plenty of athleticism, it seems many NFL personnel evaluators expect Scherff to end up at guard.
