Redskins Showing Interest in Rookie CB

According to his agent, the Redskins have shown some interest in a rookie CB for the draft in April.

James Jones from CardinalsInsider.com told me today that, per his agent, the Redskins have shown some interest in Nebraska CB Zach Bowman.

His Pro Day was on March 12th and he ran in the 4.3-4.4 range and showed well in his position drills.

His agent didn't elaborate, but did say that Zack has over come quite a bit in his life including a ruptured patellar tendon in order to compete for an NFL Draft selection.

His agent also told James that if his client had come out after his Junior Season, he might have been one of the top DB picks in the draft.

As far as the Redskins go, and the need to draft a CB, I think it is plain and simple. You can rationlize this interest in one word.

DEPTH

The Redskins did not try to re-sign CB David Macklin, S Pierson Prioleau, or S Omar Stoutmire. Carlos Rogers is also trying to come back from major knee surgery.

So that leaves the Redskins, as of today, with only two capable starters in Fred Smoot and Shawn Springs.

With the Redskins being so quiet in Free Agency, at least, thus far, the draft seems like a logical place for the Redskins to try and improve this depth.

The question is, in what round will they address it?

Zack Bowman is the 27th ranked CB according to Scout.com rankings, so certainly, he could be had in the later rounds.
