RGIII has emerged as the Redskins offensive and team leader this offseason. With a new coach in town Washington can hit the reset button after last year’s abysmal season. Griffin has set the tone for players this offseason, and that message has been clear from Griffin. After safety Ryan Clark signed with the team Griffin called him, congratulated him, and immediately told him: “Now let’s go to work.”

@RipSeanShock Asks if Dri Archer is a possibility in this May’s draft?

This is a tough one. I wouldn’t be shocked, but I don’t think so. If the Redskins go running back in the draft I see them going with someone who is bigger and more durable that can come in and pass protect on third down, and catch the ball out of the backfield. A Charles Sims or Marion Grice. The Redskins already got their speedy weapon to stretch the field that can be used in a variety of ways in DeSean Jackson so Dri Archers chances of landing in D.C. are slim in my opinion

Round 2: Cyrus Kouandjio OT Alabama

Cyrus Kouandjio may be the most talented second round pick if he does indeed fall to the Redskins at 34. Kouandjio is a massive 6’7’ 322 pounds; that could help a Redskins offensive line that was undersized to fit Mike Shanahan’s offense and got pushed around far too often in 2013. The issue with Kouandjio is whether he can stay healthy and if his knee will hold up. Teams have mixed opinions of this, however, Dr. James Andrews says his knee is fine (same Dr. who performed RGIII’s knee surgery) so the Redskins would likely trust his judgment and not let Kouandjio fall past 34. He has the potential to be a steal and future star in the NFL, but potential to be a bust if his knee and health don’t hold up.

The Redskins have their workhorse running back in Alfred Morris. However, the depth chart after Morris is a bit of a mystery at this point.

 

With a new coaching staff in town, Alfred Morris should be the only back on Washington’s roster that feels good about his job security. Jay Gruden has a history of using two running backs, including a running back that can catch passes out of the backfield.

Round 2: Jason Verrett Cornerback TCU

 

Jason Verrett is phenomenal corner who could find himself falling into the second round due to his small frame (5’10 189 pounds), but the Redskins would be wise to not let him slip past pick 34. Verrett could contribute from day one and would likely be an upgrade over recently signed Tracy Porter in the slot corner position. Verrett could also be the long term answer for the Redskins at corner paired with second year pro David Amerson, because DeAngelo Hall can’t play forever. Verrett plays with a confidence and a swagger that doesn’t suggest he is 5’10, and doesn’t back down to anyone. I absolutely love the way he plays and his fit with the Redskins, ultimately if he does make it to the top of the second round, the Redskins could be a good fit for Verrrett.
