The truth is that Greg Stroman was way more than a returner, he really is a solid Cornerback, and really does have a shot at being a competent regular Corner, especially in the slot where the receivers are quick, not fast, and where the new 3 second passing game is becoming critical. There are few Cornerbacks that have managed to cover under the zone very well, especially man-up in traffic.
Stroman could very well be someone the Redskins’ defense looks to to fill in that role. My guess, though is that if Greg Stroman makes that roster it’s because after he sorted out his retreat tendencies on punt returns, Stroman became freaking dangerous when fielding punts. It wasn’t just the touchdowns, either. It was gaining back critical yards, putting pressure on punters to keep the ball away from him. But he had a serious talent for helping to flip the field in 2017.
The Redskins really haven’t had a return man in the back for a while Jameson Crowder was ‘okay’ but had his limitations, especially in traffic. The football world still is amazed that Stroman is as tough and versatile as he his. He is greatly underestimated, and it looks like Torrian Gray might have pushed a bit of the good word under Washington’s talent evaluators’ noses.

Yes, he makes it starts as a Returner, and plays some defense, too.
Yes, and sees more playing time in 2018 than expected.
No, he ends up just being too thin for the NFL
Practice Squad - somewhere, to beef up.
Just a few reminders for those of you who might forget some things about Greg Stroman.
And as to Stroman getting mixed up with the big guys, he’ll do that, too.
Good Luck to Greg Stroman!
