Roster Construction Offense | Fanspeak Washington Redskins Blog
The Redskins 90 man offseason roster will really take shape with next weeks draft and undrafted free agent signings. Currently they have 73 guys signed, though if they want to make extra room for draft picks/UDFA's there are plenty of guys they could easily cut. While we will get into predictions about who will be on the final roster, today I wanted to take a look at how many players at each position the Redskins should look to keep as a target, with some of the reasons why.

Will the Redskins draft a tight end? | CSN Washington
The starter will be Fred Davis. At the age of 27 he should be entering his prime NFL seasons. He could gain 1000 yards receiving year in and year out for the next several seasons for the Redskins and make a Pro Bowl or two. But that future is hardly set in stone. Davis must recover from a torn Achilles tendon he suffered last October. The reports have been so far, so good but we won’t really know how things are progressing until he gets out on the field with pads on.

2013 NFL draft position preview: Running backs
There is speculation that the Rams potentially could take Lacy with one of their two opening-round selections in the NFL draft next Thursday night. If that happens, it would be a significant pick for a few reasons. It would keep intact a five-decade-old streak of at least one running back being chosen annually in the draft’s opening round. And it could potentially make Lacy part of the Rams’ draft haul resulting from last year’s trade with the Washington Redskins that enabled quarterback Robert Griffin III to land in D.C.

Need to Know: Prime time possibilities - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
When the NFL schedule came out a year ago, the Redskins got a schedule befitting a team that finished with a double-digit loss total for the third straight season. They had just one prime time game, a Monday night when they hosted the Giants, and one nationally televised game on Thanksgiving in Dallas. It would thought that this rookie QB, Robert Griffin III, could be pretty good one day but it would take a year or two for him to be a major TV draw.

Draft Needs: NFC East |
As well as London Fletcher has played over the years, it seems like he’s on his last legs. The cupboard isn’t as bare as at right tackle, however, as the Redskins do at least have 2012 fourth-round pick Keenan Robinson behind him. Washington knew they needed some help at right tackle this offseason and so, with what little money they had, they added both Jeremy Trueblood and Tony Pashos. Incumbent Tyler Polumbus had a -24.0 grade in the regular season in 2012, leaving him the fourth-worst offensive tackle in the league. He was equally as bad in pass protection as he was in the run game and was only saved further embarrassment by conceding just a single penalty.
