Emmanuel Forbes with an interception on the 1st day of Commanders’ rookie minicamp
It didn’t take long for rookie cornerback Emmanuel Forbes to show his new team his ability to create turnovers.
Forbes and Washington’s other rookie and first-year players were in town for the first day of rookie minicamp Friday.
In 7-on-7 action, Forbes jumped a route, picking off quarterback Tim DeMorat. Unfortunately, we don’t have a video, but Zach Selby from commanders.com offers his analysis of the play:
We had our first pick from Emmanuel Forbes today, and it was a glimpse at why the Commanders drafted him. Forbes stepped in front of quarterback Tim DeMorat’s pass intended for Kyric McGowan, secured the pass in stride and began sprinting for the end zone. The play was blown dead before he could get too far downfield, but there’s a chance Forbes could have taken it all the way back.
Yes, it means nothing, but you can’t deny the first-round pick is always around the ball and isn’t afraid to take chances.
Forbes came to Washington having recorded 14 career interceptions in three seasons at Mississippi State. He returned six of those or a touchdown, which is an FBS record.
