An undrafted wideout, the 6'4" Cody Hoffman brings some much needed size to the Redskins' receiving corps.
Speaking with reporters, per CSN's Tarik El-Bashir, head coach Jay Gruden acknowledged the team's shortcomings in this department.
"And that’s one thing [about] our receiving corps, you’d like to have a couple of guys who are 6-2, 6-3," he said.
Outside of the injured 6'2" Leonard Hankerson, Washington didn't sport a receiver over 6'1" on its depth chart last season. Without a discernible size advantage to exploit, the team's red-zone offense struggled and only scored on 52 percent of its trips.
Even with that said, Hoffman—BYU's all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns—will have a tough go at just making the team.
Washington only carried six receivers last season.
DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts are all locks to make the team, and you can probably throw rookie Ryan Grant in that group as well.
That leaves Hoffman to battle it out with Hankerson, Aldrick Robinson, Nick Williams and Santana Moss for the final two spots.
Lacking the speed and precise route running to separate from defenders, though, Hoffman's odds of making the team aren't too promising.
Still, with his sure hands and standout play on special teams, Washington shouldn't hesitate to sign Hoffman to its practice squad.
If he can improve as a route-runner and learn how to better utilize his body, Hoffman could make the team in 2015.
