8.  Defensive Line

The Redskins loaded up in free Agency on the defensive line.  They not only got younger bu they added some quality depth to the unit which should lead to it being more effective in 2015.  They got a true nose tackle for the first time in Terrance Knighton.

His presence should help the Redskins defense improve against the run.  and they also added a good pass rusher at defensive end in Stephen Paea.  Their best lineman from last season Jason Hatcher, should benefit from Paea presence.

The other free agent defensive end signing, Ricky Jean Francois should help improve the Redskins pass rush as well.  So the Redskins might look to add another defensive lineman in the draft, but it’s not really a priority.

However, the USC’s Leonard Williams happens to fall to the Redskins at number five, they won’t waste time making him their pick.  LW # 3
