My take: The Redskins wanted more depth at running back, but did not need it immediately with Adrian Peterson , Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson all expected to be ready for the season.
But Love gives them a future option as each of those three have different issues age or injuries. Love, coming off a torn ACL, could be an explosive part-time player in the future, particularly out of the backfield -- that is, if the team doesn't think he could be a full-time guy at some point. Regardless, he offers sizzle. Thompson has served as a third-down back, but he's also missed a combined 12 games the past two years. My take: The Redskins signed Ereck Flowers and plan to use him at guard. But there's no guarantee Flowers will start, and even if he does they needed depth.
Martin provides that. He's experienced and strong and blocks with an attitude. The Redskins have had so many injuries the last two years along the line that they need more healthy options. My take: The Redskins added more depth along the interior of the offensive line.
They worked Pierschbacher mostly at left guard during a pre-draft workout, but he also can play center. He has extensive starting experience at right guard, left guard and center at Alabama. The Redskins need to rebuild their depth inside after consecutive injury-filled seasons.
Their left guard situation isn't settled, though Flowers will enter spring practices as the top guy. But they went through so many guards last season they were running out of names to call.
My take: The Redskins needed more depth inside, especially someone who can help on special teams. Holcomb's speed -- he ran the yard dash in 4.
He led North Carolina in tackles for the past three years and has experience on special teams. But there are questions with each, and therefore the Redskins need more young players to try to develop.
My take: The Redskins need big, physical receivers and that's what they hope Kelvin Harmon becomes. He definitely played physical in college and showed good ball skills and blocking ability. He probably projects to a possession receiver; if he becomes that guy early he would fill a need for Washington. The Redskins have numbers at receiver and drafted McLaurin Friday but they lack proven top options.
My take: Moreland was a first-team All-American at James Madison and intercepted 18 passes in his career. He's also the first JMU player to be drafted since The scouting reports say he's strong in press coverage and physical. But he's only 5-foot-9 and pounds and will have to get stronger.
The Redskins added three corners late in the draft and in undrafted free agency last year so he'll have to beat out other young players. My take: Brailford has speed, having run a 4. It helped him record nine sacks last season. Brailford is a developmental guy but has a chance to stick just because of his speed, something the Redskins need more of off the edge.
