2011 Post NFL Draft: My Wish List for Washington Redskins Undrafted Free Agents

The 2011 NFL Draft is complete and it looks like the Washington Redskins had a very successful showing. They addressed many needs and look to have added several starters and quality depth. The special teams unit should really see benefits from this draft class. This is the first step in the rebuilding of the Washington Redskins roster.

Under normal circumstances, teams would have been looking under every rock to find and sign undrafted free agents. This would normally have taken place last Sunday. Since there is still labor unrest in the world of the National Football League, teams are restricted from signed these players that were not chosen in the seven rounds of the draft. That does not stop us from looking for hidden gems to add to the roster.

I will unveil the players I feel can contribute to the Redskins roster in 2011 and beyond. There are holes that can be filled in positions that you may not want to use a draft pick on. These are guys that teams may feel don't run fast enough, are to small or are coming off injury. With some good research, you can find players that will make your roster and could even start. For these players, this is the dawn of a new chapter in their careers. It is a second chance to make their dreams come true. I think I have found a few of those guys for the Washington Redskins.

QB- Pat Devlin, Delaware

Worth a shot as a number three passer. You will need arms for training camp as well.

RB- Noel Devine, West Virginia

West Virginia Running Back Noel Devine

The diminutive Devine gives the Skins a super fast third down change of pace back.

FB- Henry Hynoski, Pittsburgh

Mike Sellers is not getting any younger and this fire hydrant could take his spot.

WR- Jeff Maehl, Oregon

This guy is a poor mans Art Monk. He makes tough catches and converts on third down.

OT- Trevis Turner, Abilene Christian

6'7" and 333 pounds is worth a look. This guy is a human eclipse. 

OG- Zach Hurd, Connecticut

6'7" and 316 pounds at guard would be a welcome addition for the Shanahan running game.

C- Kris O'Dowd, USC

Coming off injury but well worth the limited risk of an invite to camp.

C- Ryan McMahon, Florida State

Could give the team depth or even challenge starter Casey Rabach.

Boston College Linebacker Mark Herzlich

DE- Brandon Bair, Oregon

6'6" and 276 pounds of high energy, non stop pass rushing could help on passing downs.

ILB- Alex Wujciak, Maryland

The 6'3" 247 pound tackling machine could start next to London Fletcher. My sleeper pick.

OLB- Mark Herzlich, Boston College

It could never hurt to have his courage in the locker room and hope his talent returns.

K- Josh Jasper, LSU

Solid kicker who could challenge Graham Gano. Is also a pooch punt specialist.

P- Ryan Donahue, Iowa

His powerful leg should stop the revolving door at punter for the Redskins.
