2013 NFL Draft: Best Players Available at Positions of Need for Redskins

New, comments

Still a lot of draft to go. Let's take a look at some notable players still on the board at positions of need for the Redskins.

Man, what a night.

The Redskins picked up cornerback David Amerson from North Carolina State in the second round and tight end Jordan Reed from Florida in the third. Two solid players with great upside, and at positions of need. I'd say that's a pretty good way to start things off.

But the draft isn't even halfway over yet, and in one of the deepest drafts in recent memory, there are still some starting caliber players to be had in the late rounds. In no particular order, here's a list of top players at a few positions of need for the Redskins.
