2011 NFL Draft: 10 Players the Washington Redskins Should Be Targeting

The Washington Redskins have plenty of needs to address in this year's upcoming draft come April.

With two disastrous seasons in a row, it is clear that second year head coach and general manager Bruce Allen have some serious needs on both sides of the ball.

The offensive line didn't have much improvement despite drafting left tackle Trent Williams in last year's draft fifth overall. 

It is clear the Redskins need new weapons on the offensive side. 

With quarterback Donovan McNabb most likely moving on—this trade was worse then when owner Dan Synder signed Jeff George in 1999, leading to the benching of eventual Super Bowl Champion Brad Johnson—and running back Clinton Portis awaiting a nice pay day, the Redskins need to get younger at both positions.

There is serious need for an elite wide receiver and possibly buffer up the offensive line especially at the center position.

On the defensive side, the 'Skins need serious help in the secondary. 

They should also be looking for another noise tackle to dominate the line of scrimmage in the 3-4 scheme.  

A few new linebackers wouldn't be a bad idea either.

It's sad to say, but the Redskins need help pretty much at every position on the field.

In this list, we're going to take a look at the six draft picks the Redskins have—round one(10), round two (41), round five (141,152), round six( 172) and round seven (202)—and talk about who would be best to target at those picks.
