A look at the top Redskins Stories Around the Web


Analyzing McShay's Mock Draft | ESPN Redskins Blog

The Washington Redskins filled two big holes in free agency -- they hope -- when they landed defensive lineman and pass-rusher Jason Hatcher as well as big-time playmaking receiver DeSean Jackson. Next stop, the draft, where the Redskins don't pick until the second round (34th overall). Several positions would make sense in the second round: right tackle, safety or even inside linebacker.

Where Do the Redskins Go From Here? | Fanspeak.com

Now that free agency has started to wind down, the draft boards will start to become clearer at the park. After a free agency period that started out pretty quiet, the Redskins became players and added divisional players such as Jason Hatcher, and Desean Jackson. Ever since adding those players, the picture has started to become more clear, the Redskins aren't looking at this rebuild as a long term event, it's going to be a more rapid rebuild that should span only 1-2 years instead of a longer 3-5 year move. With that being said, what can we expect from here? Below I'll take a look at the draft and what the Redskins could look to do now.

The flurry of signings has slowed to a crawl. So that provides us a chance to take another look at the Redskins' salary-cap breakdown by position. For the record, Washington has approximately $2.8 million of salary-cap space remaining.

Redskins Preseason Schedule | ESPN Redskins Blog

The Washington Redskins motored through the preseason a year ago, winning every game and boosting expectations. Then came a big 3-13 crash. The lesson, as is taught all the time: the preseason is meaningful for winning roster spots and individual play, but records don't mean a whole lot.

Quick Takes: Redskins news and nuggets | ESPN Redskins Blog

Touched on this Wednesday when the preseason schedule was released, but I can't imagine Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan will go out of his way to prove a point to Washington in a preseason game. He's been around long enough to know it's just a preseason game. If I'm Browns head coach Mike Pettine, I'd be perturbed if that's the case because it could take away from what they need to do in the second preseason game. Still, it'll make an otherwise dull preseason game a little more interesting.

Who from the Redskins 2011 Draft Class Could Step Up? | CSN Washington

The Redskins drafted 12 players in 2011 and nine of them-LB Ryan Kerrigan, DE Jarvis Jenkins, WR Leonard Hankerson, RB Roy Helu, TE Niles Paul, RB Evan Royster, WR Aldrick Robinson, OL Maurice Hurt, and NT Chris Neild-remain on the roster. Only one of those picks, first-round pick Kerrigan, has established himself as a solid, long-term starter. Of the other eight, all but Neild have started at least one game, yet none appear at the top of the depth chart at their respective positions. Will this become a lost draft class with loads of potential but limited returns? Or can one or more of them step up and become a regular contributor?

Williams not counting on new weapons to ease pressure on Offensive Line | Washington Post

The addition of speedy pass-catchers DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts appears to have upgraded Washington's wide receiver unit, and figures to alleviate some pressure on Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. But left tackle Trent Williams doesn't believe those moves change much for the offensive line.
