STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL

  Inside Slant | Notes, Quotes | Strategy and Personnel | Player Wire

  A closer look at Redskins' picks (7):

Round 1/22 - Josh Doctson, WR, 6-2, 202, Texas Christian

Tall receiver may have a slight build and lack prototypical speed, but he's a wizard in the air, taking full advantage of a 41-inch vertical jump. Very efficient at tracking balls down field. Does not lose many 50-50 battles with cornerbacks.

Round 2/53 - Su'a Cravens, LB, 6-1, 226, Southern Cal

A hybrid safety-linebacker. The Redskins plan to use Cravens all over the field against pass-happy offenses, but early on he will be a linebacker in their dime packages.

Round 3/84 - Kendall Fuller, CB, 5-11, 187, Virginia Tech

Three older brothers all went to Virginia Tech and have played in the NFL. Fuller is a local product from Good Counsel High in Olney. Md. His junior season was cut short by a torn meniscus and Fuller also needed microfracture surgery in his right knee. If healthy, he was considered a likely first-round pick.

Round 5/152 - Matt Ioannidis, DE, 6-3, 299, Temple

Washington needed to add youth and depth to its defensive line. Ioannidis provides both, plus the ability to play inside or out. The Redskins drafted him as a defensive end.

Round 6/187 - Nate Sudfeld, QB, 6-6, 234, Indiana

A strong-armed developmental pick with the size NFL scouts dream about. Sudfeld threw 61 touchdown passes in his college career with 20 interceptions. The Redskins hope he turns into a quality backup.

Round 7/232 - Steven Daniels, LB, 5-11, 243, Boston College

A thumper in the middle who plays better in coverage than his below-average 40-yard dash time indicates. Daniels ran one of the nation's best run defenses at Boston College at inside linebacker. Expected to also contribute on special teams.

Round 7/242 - Keith Marshall, RB, 5-11, 219, Georgia

The fastest running back at the Combine (4.31 40-yard dash). Marshall's career at Georgia began with promise before a torn ACL ruined his sophomore and junior seasons. He returned in a complementary role as a senior. A true home-run threat in the backfield.

PERSONNEL TRACKER

FRANCHISE PLAYER: QB Kirk Cousins (tendered at $19.953M; signed March 3).

TRANSITION PLAYER: None.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

TE Alex Smith was one of a myriad of additions at a position crippled by injuries. The Redskins lost three tight ends to IR, two of them in training camp. Smith knew head coach Jay Gruden's offensive system from his days in Cincinnati and was a helpful addition late in the year, but Washington will likely rebuild this group with other options.

RB Pierre Thomas was an inspired late-season addition as injuries struck the running back corps. Had a great game in the NFC East-clinching win over Philadelphia Dec. 26. But Thomas went most of the season without a job and it's unlikely there's room for him on the 2016 roster.

CB Cary Williams signed after Seattle cut him. The Redskins were desperate for depth at cornerback, but he made little impact and likely won't return.

FB Darrel Young appears out of favor with the coaching staff. His snaps declined again in 2015. Fullback just isn't a position the Redskins have much use for. But he is a fine special teams player on a team that needs all it can get. However, the Redskins have reportedly told Young they won't try to re-sign him.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: None.

EXCLUSIVE-RIGHTS FREE AGENTS: None.
