Kedric Golston DL WAS 12 Months

The Redskins have elevated Kedric Golston onto the first-team defense following Jarvis Jenkins' suspension.

Jenkins will miss the first four games, and Golston is the favorite to replace him. A limited talent, try-hard player, Golston played 404 snaps in 2012 and graded out negatively as a pass rusher while earning mediocre marks in run defense, per Pro Football Focus. He's a sizable downgrade from Jenkins.
