Bruce Allen and Coach Shanahan must draft wisely to improve a defense that ranked 27th in the NFL last year in yardage allowed (377.7 yards per game). The defense will get a boost with the return of pass-rusher Brian Orakpo but the secondary needs a make-over. Last season, it was too old and too slow. The NFL is pass-heavy and the Redskins need to better their secondary to compete.
The offense is eagerly awaiting the return of the dynamic RG3, but with Alfred Morris running the ball, Kirk Cousins should be able to man the ship until his return. Adding depth to the offensive line is also a must if the Redskins want to continue to be productive in their run game.
Expect the Redskins to address their secondary concerns early and add valuable depth late.
