If Shanahan is going to run his system, he certainly needs his type of players. Two big concerns of mine were the RB and FS positions, which they addressed post draft.

Matt Terl did a great write-up on Dennis Morris at the Redskins Blog. I think everyone screamed "WTF?!!? We drafted a TIGHT END?" with the 6th pick, but that highlight video of Dennis shows what a dynamic player the Redskins added (TE/FB/H-Back). We all know Mike Sellers makes a lot of mistakes, so Dennis adds instant competition at that spot. I expect him to contribute immediately. His highlight video is a must see.
