They are without a first-round pick and in a deep draft they may want to replenish their stock of picks by trading back and picking up additional selections. And some recent movement among quarterbacks may make it easier for the Redskins to do just that.
The Redskins have plenty of needs that they could address with their first pick in the draft, the 34th overall. However, they could decide to consider factors beyond immediate needs when they are on the clock with that pick.
Andre Roberts, frustrated by his role with Arizona after four seasons with the Cardinals, signed with Washington with the idea he'd be the No. 2 receiver. But then the Redskins signed DeSean Jackson and now Roberts wonders what that means for him.
The Washington Redskins had little depth at receiver last season, and lacked a dynamic playmaker among their starters. Pierre Garcon caught a lot of passes, but for his 113 catches he only averaged 11.9 yards per catch and caught just five touchdown passes. So they signed Andre Roberts and then DeSean Jackson, the latter solving the playmaker problem in a big way.
Kouandjio ran the 40-yard dash in 5.42 and 5.53 seconds. He had a 31-inch vertical jump and 8-foot-10 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.82 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.93 seconds. He performed 25 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press, but was only given credit for 21 of those reps because he arched his back. Kouandjio had not missed any practice time or games due to injuries, but was withheld from workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine after failing physicals with several teams.
