If not for the terms of the trade that brought them quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Redskins would have been the second team up in our series of draft previews.
That honor (and the second overall pick) went to the Rams, though, and now we kick off the final day of previews with a look at the Redskins. Their first pick is the second pick of the second round, No. 34 overall, and the Redskins have no shortage of areas that could use an infusion of talent.
Most of those areas are on the defensive side of the ball, which should come as no surprise to those who watched the Redskins fail to put up much resistance to any opposing offense in 2013. You can pretty much pick any spot other than outside linebacker and hope to find an upgrade over what’s already on hand, although the same is true at right tackle as well. Going there could help keep Griffin healthy and keep the Redskins from landing in the top few picks of the draft again next year.
