DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts are the top three receivers for the Redskins, which is almost unthinkable considering just last season they seemed to be desperate for receivers. Behind that trio, however, the depth chart is a bit of a mess.
Leonard Hankerson is the perennial potential breakout candidate, though he is still recovering from a torn ACL and LCL suffered late in the 2013 season. If healthy, and with surer hands, Hankerson is a solid possession receiver and potential red-zone target.
Aldrick Robinson is the deep threat who offers little else. He's great when he gets open deep, but he doesn't run the rest of the routes a receiver should and is mediocre at getting any separation on routes that require him to do anything beyond simply running fast.
Santana Moss is the elder statesman in the rotation and may end up as the go-to fourth receiver because of his experience and ability to do just about everything from underneath routes, to going over the middle, bubble screens and going deep.
Undrafted free agent Cody Hoffman and sixth-round pick Ryan Grant could be in line to replace the both of them in the near future. Hoffman is a big-bodied receiver who could easily overtake Hankerson as a possession receiver.
Grant isn't the deep threat Robinson is, but he does all the little things that Robinson seems unable to grasp. He has some of the best hands of any receiver in the class but lacks the rest of the package to push for a major role.
Early Winner: Santana Moss—While the top of the depth chart is scary talented, the supporting cast is lacking in definition. Moss is dependable and could have another surprise year as he did in 2012, but the Redskins need the youth movement to take the reins at some point. Hoffman and Grant will either push Hankerson and Robinson or overtake them on the depth chart.
