With the playoff chances now a mere glimmer, here's a look at possible draft picks in the five positions that the Redskins most need help. The Redskins do not have a first round selection (barring a trade up), so they will likely begin drafting early in the second round.
The positions that the Redskins need the most help at are offensive tackle, cornerback and safety, wide receiver and tight end. The O-line has not been consistent in years and the club needs to make protecting Robert Griffin III it's top priority. The secondary is one of the worst in the league, ranking thirtieth in pass defense. Great quarterbacks need great receivers, or at least really good receivers. The Redskins do not have a single player in the top-50 in receiving yards. RG3 needs a go-to receiver, a playmaker that consistently makes the big catch.
The five players featured are players that are likely to be available in the second and third rounds and would upgrade the Redskins' roster.
