Redskins G/C Josh LeRibeus is fighting to make the roster as a reserve interior lineman.
A third-round pick in the 2012 draft, LeRibeus was once viewed as a future starter in Washington, but quickly fell out of favor after showing up to last season's camp more than 30 pounds overweight. With the coaching staff that drafted him gone and the new staff reportedly lukewarm, LeRibeus faces an uphill climb to make the roster. Jul 7 - 12:03 PM

The Washington Post reports the new Redskins coaching staff isn't believed to be high on third-year G/C Josh LeRibeus.

LeRibeus, the 71st overall pick in the 2012 draft, showed up to OTAs last spring 40 pounds over his playing weight. The Shanahans wanted LeRibeus to take over one of the starting guard spots but soured on him. Coach Jay Gruden's interior line is tentatively set with LG Shawn Lauvao, C Kory Lichtensteiger, and RG Chris Chester. LeRibeus' weight problems date back to college.

The Redskins were disappointed with second-year G/C Josh LeRibeus' fitness at offseason workouts.

Per the Washington Post, last year's 71st overall pick "did not have the best offseason" and OL coach Chris Foerster said he needs to be "in better shape." Barring a major turnaround, LeRibeus won't be a serious contender for a 2013 starting job. LG Kory Lichtensteiger and RG Chris Chester are locked in.

Redskins signed No. 71 overall pick Josh LeRibeus to a four-year contract.

A power-blocking guard in June Jones' SMU spread, LeRibeus has moved to center in Washington, practicing there exclusively in OTAs. LeRibeus figures to be a top "swing" interior reserve during his first season. Once he learns to zone block, LeRibeus could push for a full-time role as soon as 2013.

Redskins third-round pick Josh LeRibeus practiced exclusively at center during the team's first rookie minicamp.

LeRibeus was a power-blocking guard at Southern Methodist, but the Redskins are turning him into a zone-blocking center. If athletic enough to execute the transition, LeRibeus could supplant Will Montgomery in a season or two.

Redskins selected SMU OG Josh LeRibeus with the No. 71 pick in the 2012 draft.

After missing the 2010 campaign due to academic ineligibility and later putting on too much weight, LeRibeus slowly built up his draft stock last season. A Mike Shanahan zone-blocking fit, LeRibeus' strengths are quickness, toughness, and explosion off the ball. He should get an opportunity to compete with Kory Lichtensteiger for the starting left guard job.
