With the NFL Draft now days away, it's time to give a pre-draft look at the Washington Redskins roster. Below I'll grade and review each position on the team. Today's edition is on the defensive line and linebackers.
Position Grade: B-
Perfect Draft Fit: Tre'Davious White, LSU - I like a several corners in this draft, but White is my personal favorite. He can be a day one starter at the nickel position and is versatile enough to be a high end starter outside.
Notes: The Redskins have some good corners, but you can never have enough players at that position. I think their glaring hole is at nickel-back and in today's NFL, you need a guy to play the slot. They baptized Kendall Fuller by fire last year in the slot. He was an outside corner at Virginia Tech and I think that's his strength. However, I think he can be developed in the slot. Of Washington's current corners, Fuller is the most fluid. He has a lot of potential. Breeland is on the last year of his deal. I think he can still be a high-end corner in this league.
Position Grade: C-
Perfect Draft Fit: Marcus Maye, Florida - This may be the most under-talked-about safety in the draft. He is a super solid player that would immediately give the Redskins versatility at the safety spot(s). He can do it all.
Notes: If the Redskins were to enter the season with Swearinger and Cravens as their starting safeties (which I expect them to do), it wouldn't be a terrible tandem. I just think there's more questions at the position(s) right now because of the unknown. Either way, the Redskins lack depth at the position and could use an upgrade or two.
