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‚Äôs a look at some of the best available remaining prospects at those positions of need. We’ll see how things play out today.
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.
Brock Coyle, Montana
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.
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.
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.
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.
