Every prospect at the NFL draft has been blessed with exceptional athletic ability. But then you have some, like LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., whose DNA carries a double dose of that special athleticism.
Although the collective bargaining agreement has prevented new Washington Redskins coach Jay Grudenfrom speaking to quarterback Robert Griffin IIIabout football, they've discussed quite a few things over the last six weeks.
Part 1 of the Washington Redskins mailbag, after another eventful week. Just happy that everyone was kind enough not to ask me when Fred Davis would be reinstated. Of course, after his DUI charge Thursday, the answer could be pretty clear. Anyway, Friday's questions are about Brian Orakpo's worth; Alfred Morris in the pass game; Niles Paul to safety?; and more.
In Part 2 of the mailbag, more talk about Perry Riley and Brian Orakpo as well as the role of the running backs under Jay Gruden. Another topic: Who is at risk of getting released to create more cap space?

Even Redskins general manager Bruce Allen told reporters at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis that they don't know if that will happen.

But the bottom line of what he was talking about was more about what a player has above the shoulders.
