The busy part of the offseason is nearing its conclusion. But for the Redskins, there’s still a little more work to do.

The first and second waves of free agency have come and gone, and now, the dust has settled, revealing the vast, empty landscape that truly is the NFL offseason. Now, it’s a waiting game, and the Washington Redskins have dwindling time remaining before their next great test arrives.

The 2019 NFL Draft constitutes that great test, as the Redskins, with a desire to win now, will be pressed to build on the young core they’ve established, and fight through the adverse effects of Alex Smith‘s untimely injury. There are jobs on the line, and for some in the building, pride is just as important. The Redskins aren’t just competing against the league. They’re competing against their own volatility.

What should the Redskins, who have very little margin for error, take away from their spoils in free agency? What holes did they fill, and what holes remain? What should be prioritized in the 2019 NFL Draft, and what risks should be avoided at all costs?

In our latest podcast, we provide you with a general look at the answers to those questions. In this edition, I was joined by Riggo’s Rag contributor Kyle Hundley, who gave his thoughts on various offseason quandaries, and gave a general overview of the team’s free agency performance, as well as their draft priorities.

In the coming weeks,, the Redskins will continue to prepare for the 2019 NFL Draft, hosting prospects on visits and wrapping up their pre-Draft evaluations. That said, they shouldn’t box themselves in with the No. 15 pick. The possibilities are plentiful at this point, and depending on how the draft shakes out, Washington could find themselves scoring a value deal.
