Despite the likes of Brandon Meriweather, Reed Doughty, and Josh Wilson entering free agency, the Redskins did little to address the starting spots these players vacated.
One possible reason for this course of action could be Washington's belief that it has in-house replacements for these players.
In safety Phillip Thomas and cornerback David Amerson, the Redskins have two young players who could fill two of the vacancies.
Still, if the trio of secondary free agents does indeed bolt for other teams, Washington will have to look to the draft to bolster its depth chart.
A draft deep in cornerbacks, it's likely that a top corner will be available when the Redskins pick atop the second round. According to CBSSports.com, 16 cornerbacks could be drafted in the draft's first three rounds.
Safety, though, is a different story.
While Calvin Pryor and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix are both impact safety prospects, they are both projected to go in the top half of the first round, according to the latest mock draft of ESPN's Todd McShay (subscription required).
Without a safety worth picking in the second round, Washington could target a pair of safeties, like Ed Reynolds and Dion Bailey, later in the draft. Both are slotted to go in the third or fourth round, via CBSSports.com.
