The Washington Redskins have some big decisions this off-season and we look at their top 5 priorities going heading into Free Agency and NFL Draft.
The Washington Redskins took a step backwards this season after winning their division in the 2015-16 season with a 9-7 record, the Redskins missed out on the playoff and finished the season with a 8-7-1 record.
The Redskins front office have some big decisions to make this off-season, non greater then their quarterback situation with Kirk Cousins. After franchise tagging Cousins this season, the Redskins need to decide whether to pay the man the going quarterback salary or look elsewhere for their franchise QB.
We look at the top 5 priorities we believe the Redskins need to address before training camp starts for next season.
Running Back – NFL Draft:
Kirk Cousins needs help from the ground game to open holes in the passing game and the current running backs of Matt Jones and although Robert Kelly had a solid season the Red Skins need a running back who can carry the load.
With their First Round pick currently pick 17 and the top quality of Defensive lineman gone, we believe the Redskins should select running back out of Florida State, Dalvin Cook.
Cook, 21, has put in a impressive last two seasons, where he has totaled 3,465 yards and scored 40 touchdowns.
Cook is ready made for NFL with his size and speed and would be a perfect fit for the Redskins with his 6.5 yards per carry average.
