Last weekend, we saw the Denver Broncos‘ defense earn them a victory in Super Bowl 50. Between their sensational pass rush and outstanding cornerbacks, the Broncos kept the Carolina Panthers under wraps far better than most expected. That’s why the Washington Redskins must address the defense early and often this season–defenses win championships, after all.

Throughout the 2015 campaign, the Redskins fielded one of the worst defenses in the league. They finished with the No. 25 passing defense, and No. 26 rushing defense. It was a mess, especially in the first half of the season. Heading into 2016, Washington must address the defensive side of the football both during free agency and the draft.

For the time being, I’m going to focus on fixing the defense via the draft.

That’s why I’ve put together my latest seven-round Redskins mock draft, which has Washington using six of its eight picks on defense. And trust me, if the 2016 NFL Draft turns out like this for D.C., the future will look very bright for the Redskins’ D.

FYI: This mock draft was put together using Fanspeak’s On the Clock simulator.
