Redskins Draft Options at Defensive Back

The defensive backfield has also been improved with the signings of CB Chris Culliver and S Jeron Johnson. FS is still vacant and the redskins will need to draft a young player there even if they sign another veteran.

Another CB may also be drafted to add depth and another player to develop.  There are a few CBs who could be worth a 1st round pick beginning around the 10th pick. Trae Waynes is a CB who could be considered the best player at that point.

And he would be an option for the Redskins although I expect them to add a CB in the later rounds of the draft.  Safety Landon Collins would also be a consideration if McCloughan trades down to a spot from 15 on down.

But Collins is considered a SS and drafting him would force the Redskins to play Jeron Johnson at FS.  However, the Redskins need to add as much talent as possible in the defensive backfield, so if Collins is on the board after a trade down the Redskins may need to take him.
