The regular season has ended, and the Redskins will not be in the playoffs. At Redskins Park, the coaches and staff of the Washington Redskins are hard at work, reviewing film, evaluating players and seeing what holes they can fill in the draft and what holes they can fill through free agency.
Of certain things, the Redskins can be clear—even if they can't get a front line, immediate starter, the Redskins still need to draft a quarterback. While Rex Grossman can be a short-term solution, the 'Skins have to think long term.
They also know that they have holes everywhere. At wide receiver, along the offensive line, along the defensive line and the back half of the defense even, there's a lot of holes to fill. Still, they may be in a better position to improve the team than they have been in a long, long time, and they have better talent evaluators than owner Dan Snyder and former general manager Vinny Cerrato.
I already mocked the Redskins draft once, but that was without knowing the draft order, and without knowing exactly all the needs the Redskins were going to have to fill.
Keep in mind this is purely for fun, and some of these scenarios are exactly why I'll never be a general manager or a draft guru. Also, the number for the picks might be a tiny bit off here or there.
With that in mind, it's time to take a mock look at what the Redskins could do to improve their football team in the future.
