The review: This week's top stories on Breaking Burgundy

The most popular stories on Breaking Burgundy included free agent deals, playing opportunities and "What if" NFL Draft scenarios.

Good morning and happy weekend. If you were rather busy all week with work, life or a House of Cards marathon, here's a look back at the top five stories of the week on Breaking Burgundy:

1) Interesting details about Vernon Davis's contract

We know the name and recognize the Redskins need for tight end depth due to injury concerns. Yet the stats for the local kid and former Pro Bowl selection have taken a dive of late. Therefore, what's the plan for Davis's role and is he a roster lock?

2) Opportunity Knocks -- Rashad Ross

There's of course lots of focus on adding help via free agency or the draft. Yet growth can and must come from within, from players already on the roster, those that have already spent time with the coaching staff. One such player is Ross, a kick return presence last season who also flashed speed on offense. If DeSean Jackson is done in Washington after this season, a new deep threat must emerge. Dan Roth explained why Ross could be this threat.

3) Would the Redskins draft Ezekiel Elliott at 21?

"What if" scenarios are fun. So, what if the Ohio State running back and top 10 overall prospect falls into Washington's range because of positional value. The Redskins need defense above all and there are plenty of options. There aren't any other RB prospects draftniks rank in Elliott's range. The funny thing is this scenario played out for Ben Standig in the Scout Mock Draft.

4) NFL Draft -- Defensive sleepers

Paul Conner gives you five names beyond the big names that could make a big impact without a big draft cost

5) NFL Draft - Prospect rankings, offense

Jared Goff or Carson Wentz? Is Josh Doctson a better wide receiver prospect than Michael Thomas? More from NFL Draft coverage from our film guy Paul Conner.
