The NFL Draft is over, and undrafted free agents have been signed... what better time to do a 53-man roster projection for the Redskins!

My break-down has 25 players on offense, 25 players on defense, and our 3 special teams positions.

Overall, I have 9 rookies making the team (all 8 draft picks, and one undrafted free agent).

QB (3) - Alex Smith, Colt McCoy, Kevin Hogan

RB (4) - Derrius Guice (R), Chris Thompson, Samaje Perine, Rob Kelley (FB)

WR (6) - Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson, Jamison Crowder, Maurice Harris, Robert Davis, Trey Quinn (R)

TE (3) - Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, Jeremy Sprinkle

OL (9) - Trent Williams, Morgan Moses, Ty Nsekhe, Brandon Scherff, Chase Roullier, Geron Christian (R), Arie Kouandjio, Sean Lauvao, Sean Welsh (R)

Defense (25):

DL (6) - Jonathan Allen, DaRon Payne (R), Matt Ioannidis, Tim Settle (R), Stacy McGee, Anthony Lanier
