The Washington Redskins looked to free agency to not only improve the talent level of their defensive line, but to also add depth. Here is a look at the projected Depth Chart of the D-Line, post free agency.
- Jason Hatcher – Hatcher has been brought in to generate a pass rush, and he should help the Redskins D-line improve on the 5.5 combined sacks from 2013. His presence should also free up Brian Orakpo an Ryan Kerrigan more in as pass rushers too.
- Stephen Bowen – Bowen returns from a knee injury, but he will have to fight to be a starter in 2014.
- Kedric Golston – Golston is a capable backup, but will be in a fight to make the team in 2014.
- Barry Cofield – I still think Cofield would make a better DE than NT, but it seems he’ll sty there.
- Chris Neild – Neild seemed to play well when he got the chance late last season. Maybe he can make another jump in 2014.
- Chris Baker – Baker can play nose tackle as well as defensive end.
- Chris Baker - Baker was re-signed by the Redskins, and is expected to have a much bigger role in 2014.
- Jarvis Jenkins – Jenkins has yet to live up to the expectations of a second round pick. He will need to make a big impression in 2014 to have a shot a starting.
- Clifton Geathers – At 6’8, 340 pounds, Geathers instantly becomes the Redskins biggest defensive lineman.
