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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
