Jon Halapio would add some extra aggression to the offensive line.
The interior of the offensive line is one of the positions under scrutiny this offseason. Players like Chris Chester and Kory Lichtensteiger didn't live up to expectation or salary in 2013 and are now in danger of being cut.
Emmanual Benton of Player Insiders reported on Twitter that Washington had met with Florida guard Jon Halapio at the combine:
This will be a move welcomed by those shouting for more aggression along the line. Back in July, NFL.com's Daniel Jermiah remarked on Halapio's ability to finish blocks and how he looked to dominate his opponents:
NFLDraftScout.com ranked him as a fifth-round prospect, and he would be a good acquisition here. It's possible that he could go earlier, but his combine performances were not spectacular, so it's more likely that his outlook is somewhere around the bottom three rounds.
Nonetheless, he has all the intangibles needed for a career in the NFL and Washington seemingly has a space available for him.
Jordan Matthews, however, could be the first player Washington takes off the board. It's also entirely possible that he goes in the first round.
The cousin of Jerry Rice, Matthews departed Vanderbilt as the SEC's all-time leader in receptions (262) and yards (3,759). He showed some speed at the combine with a 4.46 40-yard dash, while his 21 reps on the bench press was equal to that of Jadeveon Clowney.
He's not a complete prospect, however, and anyone taking him in the first round would be playing with fire. Despite his impressive stats, Matthews isn't as explosive or elusive as his record suggests. He could also do with adding some size to his frame, but at 6'3" and 216 pounds, he has room to do that.
