The 2017 NFL Draft is over. Combined with free agency, the Washington Redskins have revamped parts of their roster. There are undrafted free agents to add and perhaps some veterans along the way, but we now have a good sense of the position depth charts and battles heading into the summer.
Therefore, I present the current members of the Redskins roster. Players in bold are projected starters and those in italics are part of the 2017 NFL Draft class. The order is primarily off of how the salary cap site Over The Cap listed the players by 2017 salary.
Quarterback: Kirk Cousins, Colt McCoy, Nate Sudfeld
* At this moment Cousins remains on the roster -- and without a long-term deal. Both sides have until July 15 to work that out, but it seems unlikely.
* Washington selected the 233-pound Perine in round four. The downhill runner won't be handed the starting job, but he'll certainly battle "Fat Rob" for the role. His arrival likely means the end of Jones' time with the Redskins especially if they can deal him.
* The Redskins added size in free agency with Pryor and Quick. That trend continued with the 6-foot-3 Davis in the sixth round. Interesting battles shaping up for the final 1-2 unit spots.
* Decent amount of uncertainty with this unit despite everyone coming back. Reed is a Pro Bowler with persistent concussion concerns. Paul ended his last two seasons prematurely because of injuries. Davis surprised with his production last
Center: Spencer Long, Chase Roullier, Ronald Patrick, Quinton Schooley
Guard: Brandon Scherff, Shawn Lauvao, Arie Kouandjio
Tackle: Trent Williams, Morgan Moses, Ty Nsekhe, Vinston Painter, Kevin Bowen, Ronald Patrick, Isaiah Williams, John Kling
* This group could look rather familiar again this season other than at
Nose tackle: Ziggy Hood, A.J. Francis, Phil Taylor, Joey Mbu
* Snagging Allen at 17 -- or that the Alabama standout was available -- was equal parts shocking and helpful. His presence should in time help boost the defensive line. There's no clear evidence to think there will be much if any improvement at nose tackle, though head coach Jay Gruden after the draft concluded said the outside world is underrating their options. We'll see. How Ioannidis, Lanier and
Outside linebacker: Ryan Kerrigan, Preston Smith, Trent Murphy, Ryan Anderson, Junior Galette, Houston Bates, Chris Carter, Rufus Johnson, Khairi Fortt, Lynden Trail, Pete Robertson
Inside linebacker: Will Compton, Mason Foster, Zach Brown, Martell Spaight, Zach Vigil, Steven Daniels
* The addition of Brown, a Pro Bowler last season with Buffalo, and Anderson, Washington's second-round pick should significantly help this unit inside and on the edge. Wild cards galore at OLB with Smith coming off a sophomore slump, Murphy suspended four games and Galette hopefully back after two season-ending Achilles injuries.
Cornerback: Josh Norman, Bashaud Breeland, Kendall Fuller, Fabian Moreau, Quinton Dunbar, Dashaun Phillips, Shak Randolph, Joshua Holsey, Tharold Simon
Safety: D.J. Swearinger, Su'a Cravens, DeAngelo Hall, Will Blackmon, Montae Nicholson, Josh Harvey-Clemons, Josh Evans, Deshazor Everett, Earl Wolff
* The Redskins made single picks for six different positions but spent four with the secondary including Moreau (3rd) and Nicholson (4th). The safety position needed an overhaul, one that began with the signing of Swearinger. Moreau, among the several draft
Special Teams: Tress Way, Dustin Hopkins, Nick Sundberg
