While the Washington Redskins' first pick of their draft will be Robert Griffin III, the rest of their draft strategy is still a mystery. However, one position that we know the Redskins will go after is safety.
According to Mike Jones of The Washington Post, the Redskins have been looking hard at using a mid-round pick on a safety to improve their secondary. One player that Jones says the Redskins have been in contact with is Phillip Thomas of Syracuse.
Thomas isn't a name you hear very often, but one thing that Thomas excels at is causing turnovers.
If Washington doesn't draft Thomas, another player they might look at is Aaron Henry from Wisconsin. While he is still raw, Henry has a huge upside and should be able to contribute sooner than later.
I'm sure the Redskins would love to get Griffin some weapons during the draft, but they'll likely address their defense, and specifically cornerback, before they do that.
