4. Nose Tackle - The Redskins have Barry Cofield at nose tackle, and he has been a quality starter there for the past few seasons. However, even with Cofield the Redskins have lacked a true space eating nose tackle, and it’s hurt the defense. They re-signed the up and coming Chris Baker, who performed well late last season, but mostly at defensive end.
Chris Neild is also an option, but he has mostly been a backup. Cofield had a decent season in 2013, and Baker can be used at nose tackle and defensive end. But the Redskins still don’t have a true nose tackle who can command a double team, and free up the inside linebackers to make plays. Redskins Team Needs
