Redskins post draft Depth Chart - Wide Receivers

The Washington Redskins looked to the Free Agency to improve the talent level of their receiving corps.  They have also brought in some talented rookies to provide depth.  Here is a look at the projected Depth Chart of the wide receiver position, post NFL Draft.

Wide Receiver

  1. Pierre Garcon – Garcon emerged as a top receiver in 2013, and set a single season receptions record last season with 113 catches.  He will more than likely remain the primary target.
  2. Leonard Hankerson  – Hankerson became a starter last season, but tore an ACL.  He will need to come back strong to keep his spot on the team.
  3. Cody Hoffman  (rookie) – Hoffman is an undrafted free agent.  But at 6’4, 211 he brings size to the table for the Redskins.  Something the receiving unit lacks.

Wide Receiver

  1. DeSean Jackson  – The addition of Jackson gives the Redskins the deep threat they’ve lacked for a while.  Jackson’s presence should open things up for others on offense as well.
  2. Aldrick Robinson – Robinson is a deep threat, but hasn’t been consistent.  He will need to find that consistency if he’s to remain on the team.
  3. Ryan Grant (rookie) – Grant brings speed and quickness to the unit.  Being a draft pick means he will get a good long look by the coaching staff and front office.


Slot Receiver

  1. Andre Roberts – Roberts was brought in to be the number two receiver, that is until DeSean Jackson was signed.  Now he will be looked to as the slot receiver.
  2. Santana Moss – Moss was re-signed in the offseason, but that was before Roberts and Jackson were brought on board.  Moss will have to fight off a talented group of young receivers to keep his spot.
  3. Nick Williams – Williams can play in the slot and return kicks, but he will need a great training camp and preseason to make the team.
