2014 NFL Draft: Washington Redskins Team Needs

2014 NFL Draft: Washington Redskins Team Needs
By Patrick Conn on January 05, 2014

Coming off of their NFC East Championship season the Washington Redskins had high hopes. However, coming off of ACL surgery quarterback Robert Griffin III didn’t seem to be near as effective. They were hit with the injury bug just like everyone else and Griffin and his father seemed to be a real distraction for head coach Mike Shanahan who is now looking for employment.

Regardless of who the next coach is to take over this disfunctional dumpster fire, he will have a rough time rebuilding without a top draft pick. They have their quarterback in RGIII or at least you would hope so. For what they gave up for him, the Redskins have to make it work. If Griffin’s father had his way, Art Briles would be roaming the sidelines for the Redskins, but with the deal he just signed I do not expect him to leave Baylor.

Offensively their biggest need is probably wide receiver. The Redskins could potentially lose Josh Morgan, Santana Moss, Dezmon Briscoe, and Aldrick Robinson. So apart from Pierre Garcon, the Redskins would be really thin at wide receiver. They could potentially target the position with their first pick in the second round and still get a quality starter to package with Garcon.

Wide Receiver Prospects to watch: Brandon Coleman Rutgers, Odell Beckham Jr LSU, Davante Adams Fresno State.

Defensively it would seem that they are losing every one of their linebackers. London Fletcher is retired at the age of 38. Meanwhile Perry Riley, Brian Orakpo, Nick Barnett, Bryan Kehl and Will Compton are all free agents. What type of defense they run will also be a factor on needing linebackers versus defensive ends.

Linebacker Prospects to watch: Michael Sam/Missouri, Jeremiah Attaochu/Georgia Tech, Shayne Skov/Stanford, and Christian Jones/Florida State.

Team Needs: WR, OLB, ILB, FS, TE
