Upgrading the defensive line, finding a quality blocking tight end and adding more talent at the linebacker positions rank high on the team’s priority list, coach Jay Gruden said.

MAILBAG | The Kirk Cousins contract talks loom over everything.
Washington needs to beef up its defensive front, and the Michigan State Spartans could provide the perfect answer in the draft.
Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has a very loyal following that has gotten louder with his on-field success.
