Amerson acclimating with Redskins
Posted May 6, 2013
Washington — North Carolina State University's David Amerson is wearing number 39 for the Washington Redskins after sporting number 1 for the Wolfpack.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Amerson is being groomed to play the outside corner, and the coach was impressed with the good hands his second-round pick was showing in a recent three-day rookie camp.
The weekend workouts marked the start of Amerson's transition to becoming an NFL player.
"It's a dream come true to get out here and get active and get some of the nervous jitters away," Amerson said.
"I knew it was going to be an adjustment, learning a new scheme and getting acclimated to the defense. It's going to be what I expected."
Amerson added that he likes the way the Redskins use their corners with a lot of help over the top so he can be aggressive when it comes to jumping routes.
