Washington still has long-term needs at cornerback, inside linebacker and safety. The Redskins also would like to add a speedy, pass-catching running back to pair with Alfred Morris.

Here’s a look at some of the best available remaining prospects at those positions of need. We’ll see how things play out today.

Cornerback

Keith McGill, Utah

Pierre Desir, Lindenwood

Jaylen Watkins, Florida

Marcus Roberson, Florida

Walt Aikens, Liberty

Thoughts: McGill is an attractive option with great size at 6-3, 211. But he still has some developing to do. Desir also is an intriguing prospect. He too has size (6-1, 198) but comes from a Division II school.

Inside linebacker

Shayne Skov, Stanford

Lamin Barrow, LSU

Brock Coyle, Montana

Max Bullough, Michigan State

Avery Williamson, Kentucky

Thoughts: Skov (6-2, 245) leads the group. He has good size and is described as a tone-setter, but he does have some injuries in his history.

Running back

Andre Williams, Boston College

Devonta Freeman, Florida State

Ka’Deem Carey, Arizona

Lache Seastrunk, Baylor

James White, Wisconsin

Thoughts: Carey is probably the best pass-catcher of the bunch and reminds scouts of Brian Westbrook. His speed and versatility could serve Washington well.

Safety

Brock Vereen, Minnesota

Marqueston Huff, Wyoming

Dion Bailey, Southern Cal

Ed Reynolds, Stanford

Craig Loston, LSU

Thoughts: Vereen has good coverage skills having played cornerback. He has good toughness despite less-than-elite size (6-0, 199). He could contribute on special teams.

Wide receiver

Martavias Bryant, Clemson

Kevin Norwood, Alabama

Jared Abbrederis, Wisconsin

Shaquelle Evans, UCLA

Devin Street, Pittsburgh

Thoughts: The Redskins would like to add a big-target receiver to complete their pass-catching unit. Bryant (6-4, 211) entered the draft projected as a second- to third-round pick. One intriguing player that has a bit of a lower grade than the top five remaining wide receivers is Brandon Coleman of Rutgers. The 6-6, 225-pounder is the biggest wideout in the draft. But he could be a project player as he needs to work on consistency and fluidity in his route-running.
