Josh LeRibeus WAS 5 Months
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.
