In less than two weeks, the NFL draft will begin and a new wave of young talent will enter the powerful sports league in the world. For some teams, this year's draft is just the first step in a long line of rebuilding that is scheduled to take place. Others will use this time to supplement and deepen their already powerful rosters.
The Washington Redskins are one of several teams that fall in between these groups; they are certainly not rebuilding but still have clear holes on their roster. As has been noted all offseason, the Redskins have been cash-strapped due to the league imposed $36 million fine. This left the Redskins with few options in free agency, and they were forced to let notable players like Lorenzo Alexander sign with other organizations.
With the shock and awe period of free agency behind us, teams are making their final evaluations of incoming rookie talent. In addition, teams are re-evaluating their current rosters to see what holes still remain. Here, we will examine five holes that still hinder the Redskins and should be addressed in the upcoming draft.
