Draft Scout Bacarri Rambo News
05/06/13 - ASHBURN, Va. -- Five players on hand at Redskins rookie minicamp had been selected earlier in the draft than Baccari Rambo, but although second-round cornerback David Amerson, third-round tight end Jordan Reed and fourth-round safety Phillip Thomas all attracted some media attention after the open session on May 5, the biggest throng surrounded the sixth-rounder from Georgia.
That was true in part because Rambo had been projected as an early-round pick before he was suspended for the start of a second straight Bulldogs season after failing another drug test.
But the other reason for the focus on Rambo is that, along with Thomas, he has a decent chance to start at the position that was Washington's biggest weakness during its 2012 NFC East championship season. Tanard Jackson, who was supposed to start at free safety last year, remains on an indefinite NFL substance abuse suspension. Madieu Williams, who filled for Jackson in 2012, wasn't re-signed.
"Their ball skills were very evident over the last few days," coach Mike Shanahan said of Rambo and Thomas. "We do a lot of different things with our secondary. We put a lot of pressure on them mentally as well as physically. You've got be able to play both (strong and free safety). They've got the size and the athletic ability to play both positions."

04/24/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT RANG'S GANG: SS: Shawn Williams, Georgia, 6-0, 213, 4.42...Considering the number of talented players on the Georgia defense this season, it is easy to understand why Williams didn't receive more attention. Nevertheless, he proved to be a vocal and demonstrative leader, setting the tone for this unit. Ignore the fact that he didn't intercept a single pass in 2012. He snared four a year earlier and might just be the most underrated player in a rich safety class. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

02/20/13 - 2013 NFL Combine, Next question: Just like any interview that you might have gone through, the players invited to the combine are there to try to get a job. They have to impress their potential employers with intelligence and dedication. Each NFL team is allowed 60 formal player interviews. Each interview can last up to 15 minutes. The topics of conversation can fluctuate wildly from team to team and from player to player.
Georgia will be well represented at Lucas Oil Stadium this week, including in the secondary led by Bacarri Rambo. However the Bulldog safety missed four games this past season due to suspension after a failed drug test. While his off-field character isn't a substantial concern, Rambo will still need to address the situation and put any worries to rest. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
