Redskins' dime package adds deception and versatility to their defense | Washington Post

For the majority of the season to date, the Redskins' defense has been pretty vanilla in its coverage schemes. They haven't shown too many different looks pre-snap and usually stick to variations of cover-three zone with a healthy dosage of Tampa-two and quarters coverage mixed in. But against the Giants, they broke away from the norm, surprising the Giants with multiple looks and more man coverage.

2016 NFL Draft order and needs: Playoff teams -
26. Washington Redskins 2015 record: 5-6 (.529)

Top need: Center Other needs: Wide receiver, cornerback, defensive line, offensive tackle

Senior prospects at positional needs: Center: Nick Martin (Notre Dame), Mike Matthews (Texas A&M); WR: D.J. Foster (Arizona State), Sterling Shepard (Oklahoma), Josh Doctson (TCU); CB: Maurice Canady (Virginia), Danzel McDaniel (Kansas State), Will Redmond (Mississippi State); DL: DeForest Buckner (Oregon), Shilique Calhoun (Michigan State), Sheldon Day (Notre Dame), Jarran Reed (Alabama), Adolphus Washington (Ohio State); OT: Vadal Alexander (LSU), Taylor Decker (Ohio State), Spencer Drango (Baylor).

Analysis: Kirk Cousins has turned this "top need spot" into a new position. While we might not be totally sold on Cousins as the long-term solution, it is reasonable to think the Redskins can target an area like offensive or defensive line where the team needs more competition, depth and talent. Center could be addressed within the first four rounds, while cornerback and wide receiver are wild-card needs.
