Just one day away from the NFL Draft, the League decided to announce the long list of former players that will represent their team’s in proclaiming the second round draft picks. The Washington Redskins will have newly retired linebacker London Fletcher exclaim to the viewing audience their first pick in the 2014 draft. Over the years, the NFL has slowly incorporated players reading their team’s draft picks and this year the entire second round will be read by legends of their respective teams.
Although the direction the Redskins will go remains up in the air, Washington will have the three-time pro bowler holding the final say. Most likely, the Redskins will look to bolster their offensive line in a big way by hoping one of the many highly rated linemen falls to Washington with pick number 34. The strongest candidates are Alabama’s Cyrus Kuoandjio and Virginia’s Morgan Moses. Both offensive linemen should be an excellent fit for the Redskins early in the second round. Kuoandjio is a local product after attending DeMatha Catholic High School and could be a perfect fit protecting Robert Griffin III.
Still, other needs remain, primarily within the secondary and the defensive end positions. Washington has six selections to address these needs in the Draft and may even look to add more when pick 34 goes on the clock.
