The Washington Redskins looked to the Free Agency and the draft to improve the depth at corner. Here is a look at the projected Depth Chart of the cornerback position, post NFL Draft.
- DeAngelo Hall – Hall had one of his best seasons in 2013 leading the team in interceptions, and has shown no signs of slowing down. He will more than likely continue to cover the opposing teams best receiver in 2014.
- Tracy Porter – Porter is known for making big plays in big games, and he will get the opportunity to make more for the Redskins this season.
- Chase Minnifield – Minnifield has shown a lot of potential since he was signed by the Redskins in 2012. However, he has had problems with injuries, and finally got a chance to play late last season, and he may finally be ready to show what he can do.
- David Amerson – Amerson had a good rookie season last year as the Redskins third cornerback. But now he will be looked to as a starter in 2014, and his size and skill should be beneficial to the Redskins defense.
- Bashaud Breeland (rookie) – Breeland is the kind of physical corner that the Redskins have lacked recently, and his skill set in press coverage will give the Skins a different way to attack receivers.
- Richard Crawford – Crawford like Minnifield has impressed when he’s been healthy, especially as a punt returner. However, Crawford is coming off of a torn ACL last season, and he will need to stay heathy to have an impact.
- Tracy Porter – Porter will be the third cornerback for the Redskins and it’s expected that he will primarily cover the slot receiver of the opposing offense, so he will be on the field a lot.
- Bashaud Breeland (rookie) – Breeland’s press coverage ability will come in handy when covering slot receivers..
- Chase Minnifield – Minnifield has the quickness to fill this role, and will more than likely get a look here as well.
