DT – Jonathan Allen – Round 1
Allen compiled 69 tackles and 10.5 sacks over 15 games in his final season with the Alabama Crimson Tide. Washington’s defense was nothing to write home about in 2016, allowing 377.9 yards per game.
DT – Terrell McClain – Free Agency
There are reasons to believe McClain was the pinnacle of the Redskins’ free-agent signings, given that the mobile defensive tackle was the staple of the Cowboys’ fluid run defense a season ago. McClain’s coming off a year in which he posted 41 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
WR – Terrell Pryor, Sr. – Free Agency
It’s time for Pryor to really show what he can do now that he’s outside of Cleveland, which has been home to dysfunction under center for what seems like an eternity now. After pundits questioned the conversion from quarterback to wide receiver, Pryor proved last season that he could make the transition after hauling in 77 catches for 1,007 yards in 2016. It’s a key area to bolster after the Redskins lost both DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free agency.
“For a team that has posted winning records the last two years and at times showed the ability to play with anybody, the Washington Redskins have had another offseason of turmoil.
Not only have they lost both coordinators and their general manager, but their contract situation with quarterback Kirk Cousins has been a huge media story and distraction. If that weren’t bad enough, they lost their best two receivers, Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, in free agency. How do you replace two 1,000-yard guys?
The Redskins believe they still have enough weapons to be solid in the passing game, but the run game is another story. The defense is going through a makeover, with as many as seven new starters, and they vow to be much more aggressive in 2017.” – FanRag Sports’ Gary Horton
