Ranking the Redskins' Biggest Offseason Needs by Position

As it currently stands, Reed Doughty could be the Redskins' starting strong safety to begin 2013.

Things tend to change quickly in the NFL. The Washington Redskins have experienced as much change as any team in the league, particularly on offense.

Think about this: In 2011, Rex Grossman and John Beck were dueling for snaps at quarterback, Roy Helu was the next big thing at running back, Santana Moss was the No. 1 receiver, and the kicker was the immortal Graham Gano.

Just one year later, one of the worst quarterback situations in the league has become one of the best, Alfred Morris ripped the starting running back job away from everyone, Moss was relegated to the slot, and Kai Forbath set a record for most consecutive field goals made to start a career.

This sudden change on offense gives hope for the Redskins this offseason, because if they want to truly contend in 2013 they'll need another quick fix—this time, on the defensive side of the ball. 

It will be very difficult. Washington has no first round draft picks and precious little cap space. That being said, something has to be done. While some units on the team are stellar, there are a few that are much less so. Only by fixing these will the Redskins turn into legitimate Super Bowl contenders.
