New, comments

The Redskins are hinting that RB will be a big priority this offseason.

Redskins fans have been clamoring for months since the season ended about upgrading the running back position. Free agency started with a bang, and running backs were quickly inked to some pretty inflated contracts. Still, the Redskins remained quite.

One person who has not remained quiet about the need for upgrading the position is Redskins Senior VP of Player Personnel Doug Williams:

The Redskins currently hold the 13th and 44th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The class happens to be very deep at running back.

Here are my top players at the position:

Player Height/Weight Bench 40 Vert

Saquon Barkley 6-0 233 29 reps 4.40 41”

Derrius Guice 5-11 224 15 reps 4.49 31.5”

Rashaad Penny 5-11 220 13 reps 4.46 32.5”

Ronald Jones II 5-11 205 DNP INJ 36.5”

Sony Michel 5-11 214 22 reps 4.54 DNP

Nick Chubb 5-11 227 29 reps 4.52 38.5”

Kalen Ballage 6’1” 228 15 reps 4.46 33.5”

Royce Freeman 5’11” 229 17 reps 4.54 34”
