The Washington Redskins Draft Needs:
What do you get the team that needs everything? The Redskins need help on both the offensive and defensive lines. They need help in their receiving group and they need help in the back-end of their defense. The Redskins were the bottom feeders of the NFC East for a reason last season.
The good news for the Redskins is that they have the fifth overall selection. The Redskins could draft a great defender like Leonard Williams or Danny Shelton. They could draft a top tier wide receiver in Kevin White or Amari Cooper, whomever is still on the board. They could take Trae Waynes the cornerback from MSU if they wanted to help the secondary. Even Landon Collins would be a viable option.
And that’s the good news for the Redskins. They have plenty of options and they have an early draft pick. We are assuming of course that they will not take another quarterback, which would be a need of theirs if they admit that. If the Titans take Mariota, there is no hope for the Redskins on the drafting a QB front any way.
The best strategy for the Redskins is to draft the best player available. You get good by drafting good players, not by forcing a pick just to fill a need.
