2011 Washington Redskins: Who Can Fill the Holes at Wide Receiver  in 2011?

No lies; the Redskins have holes in their receiver core. Holes that can't be ignored, can't be put off, and can't be shrugged off.

But are they as big as you think?

Depends on who you ask. The Redskins have been dealing with holes at their receiving position for a long, long time, and have seemingly been incapable of filling them. Many times the Redskins have tried to bring in wide outs through free agency, only for them to bust out. They've also tried to draft wide receivers, to much of the same result. 

For the last seven years the only reliable receiving talents have been Santana Moss and Chris Cooley. The Redskins added another threat in tight end Fred Davis in 2008, but other than that, the Redskins wide receivers have been lackluster to say the least.

The Redskins couldn't do much to address the holes through free agency and in the draft last season, and now, with few draft picks, and without knowing when free agency will start, it's even harder to gauge what will and what won't happen with the Redskins needs at receiver. 

So, let's take a look at and evaluate the wide receiving position; who will stay, who will go, and who can be added to improve the Redskins receiving core in the future.
