Redskins 1st round focus should be on defense | ESPN Redskins Blog

On Chris Culliver's knee injury and draft implications. Culliver might not be ready until the start of the regular season, which means he won't be sharp for a while. Even he acknowledged after the season that it takes a year to recover your form -- he went through this with his other knee in 2013. The Redskins' other corners as of now are Bashaud Breeland (solid, continues to get better), Will Blackmon (veteran they like for versatility; he will play some safety, too) and Quinton Dunbar (still learning the position, but promising). If they ask me, I'd tell them to draft a corner in the first three rounds just to add more young talent at a premium spot.

When asked if there is a quarterback available in the late rounds that might be able, with a year or two of development, to step in and be a potential backup or even starter, Farrar mentioned both Stanford's Kevin Hogan and Alabama's Jake Coker. Both Hogan and Coker lack elite athleticism, but make up for it with outstanding football intelligence, which head coach Jay Gruden seems to prefer.
