Redskins signed Utah S/LB Tevin Carter.

Carter (6'1/218) spent two seasons at Utah after transferring from community college, tallying nine tackles for loss and four INTs as a 16-game starter. Carter showed adequate-to-good athleticism at the Utes' Pro Day, running 4.54 with a 10-foot-4 broad jump and 34-inch vertical. While Carter is an aggressive, efficient tackler, his shortage of change-of-direction ability and hip stiffness may necessitate a linebacker-type role in the pros. Ultimately, he may max out on special teams.

Redskins signed Arizona State CB Lloyd Carrington.

Carrington (5'11/194) made 29 starts in ASU's secondary, amassing eight career tackles for loss, three interceptions, and two forced fumbles. He never got higher than honorable mention as an All-Pac 12 selection. Carrington turned in a pedestrian Pro Day workout, running 4.6-flat with a 10-foot-3 broad jump and 34-inch vertical. Carrington's experience as a special teams gunner will be his best path to an NFL roster spot.

Redskins signed Alabama OL Dominick Jackson.

Jackson (6'5/313) spent two seasons at Alabama after transferring from JUCO, spending the first as a backup and the second as the Crimson Tide's starting right tackle, earning second-team All-SEC honors from the conference's coaches. On game tape, Jackson showed an anchor in the run game but struggled in pass protection due to slow feet. Not particularly athletic or long (33-inch arms), Jackson will have to move inside to guard in the pros. He'll be a low-ceiling project there.

Redskins selected Georgia RB Keith Marshall with the No. 242 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Marshall (5'11/219) exploded onto the scene as a true freshman in tandem with Todd Gurley, before tearing his ACL as a sophomore and earning limited playing time for the rest of his career. Marshall finished his four years at Georgia with a 253-1,379-12 (5.5 YPC) rushing line and 24-225-3 (9.4 YPR) receiving. He rehabbed his stock at the Combine, blazing 4.31 with 25 bench-press reps. Tentative on the field after his ACL tear, Marshall has regressed since his freshman season. Marshall's intrigue is derived almost entirely from his workout metrics.
Apr 30 - 6:17 PM

Redskins selected Boston College ILB Steven Daniels with the No. 232 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Daniels (6'0/243) started 35 games at B.C., logging 30 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks. As the Eagles' starting middle linebacker in 2015, Daniels earned first-team All-ACC honors as the playcaller for the nation's No. 1-ranked defense. A two-down, north-south thumper, Daniels has some Stephen Tulloch to him as a physical overachiever who stamps out the run. Daniels' non-stop motor helps atone for his average athleticism, possessing 4.86 speed with a 9-foot-4 broad jump. He should open his career on special teams and eventually push for snaps inside.
Apr 30 - 5:55 PM

Redskins selected Indiana QB Nate Sudfeld with the No. 187 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Sudfeld (6'6/234) made 26 starts for the Hoosiers, completing 60.3% of his career passes with an 8.02 YPA and 61:20 TD-to-INT ratio. He added eight rushing scores and was voted third-team All-Big Ten as a senior. A "push passer" with a tendency to airmail way too many throws, Sudfeld fails to maximize his arm strength due to shoddy fundamentals and is a sloth in the pocket with heavy feet. Sudfeld flashed an aggressive passing mentality at Indiana, but his game is littered with flaws. He's a long-shot project.
Apr 30 - 4:08 PM

Redskins selected Temple DE Matt Ioannidis with the No. 152 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Ioannidis (6'4/299) was a three-year starter for the Owls, tallying 29 career tackles for loss with 10 sacks and seven batted passes. He earned first-team All-American Athletic Conference as a senior. Ioannidis tested out as an average athlete, but he wins with brute power and toughness and is never on the ground. Whether it be at five or one technique, Ioannidis is an old-school, two-gap player with a fairly safe floor.

ESPN's John Keim does not believe WR Andre Roberts will remain on the Redskins' roster "for long."

Roberts caught just 11 passes for 135 yards last season. He was already on the bubble before the draft, and the selection of Josh Doctson in the first round all but sealed his fate. The Redskins can save $4 million against the cap by designating him a post-June 1 cut.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed Trent Murphy will play defensive end this season.

This was expected after Murphy worked exclusively with the defensive line at voluntary workouts. An outside linebacker since being taken in the second round of the 2014 draft, Murphy will slide down to perhaps his better fit as a 3-4 end. Even with Murphy making the switch, the Skins need to more bodies on the defensive line. Murphy will be a run-stuffing role player on the line.

Redskins second-round pick Su'a Cravens said the team views him as a dime linebacker.

"That’s a spot where I can fit right in the defense," Cravens added. A hybrid safety-linebacker, Cravens is a great fit in sub packages and could eventually develop into a box safety in base sets. Cravens said he models his game after Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon.
Apr 30 - 8:52 AM

Redskins selected Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller with the No. 84 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Fuller (6'0/187) made 28 starts for the Hokies before a torn meniscus ended his 2015 season after just three games, tallying eight career tackles for loss, 35 pass breakups, and eight INTs. He made second-team All-ACC as a true sophomore before the lost junior year. Microfracture surgery on Fuller's right knee prevented him from working out before the draft. The younger brother of NFLers Vincent (S), Corey (WR), and Kyle (CB), Kendall is an instinctive and aggressive ballhawk when healthy, but has questionable long speed and may ultimately fit best at safety. Due to his serious knee recovery, Fuller can't be expected to contribute much as a rookie.
Apr 29 - 10:42 PM

Redskins selected USC LB Su'a Cravens with the No. 53 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Cravens (6'1/226) played a hybrid safety-linebacker role in USC's defense, logging 33.5 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks and nine interceptions as a three-year starter. He showed linebacker-level athleticism in pre-draft workouts, running 4.69 with a 30 1/2-inch vertical. Cravens compared himself to Deone Bucannon in Combine interviews, but isn't as good of an athlete. In Washington, expect Cravens to play a dime linebacker/strong safety hybrid role as a physical playmaker over the middle and near the line of scrimmage.

Coach Jay Gruden said watching first-round WR Josh Doctson's tape "reminded him in some ways" of A.J. Green.

Gruden, of course, coached Green before becoming the Redskins' coach. Doctson gives the Redskins something they lacked before Thursday night: size at wide receiver. Pierre Garcon was their biggest weapon outside at 6-feet tall. Doctson stands 6-foot-2 and has the leaping ability to high-point the ball downfield and as an option to pair with Jordan Reed in the red zone.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim reports "nothing will change" regarding Pierre Garcon's roster status after Washington used the No. 22 overall pick on WR Josh Doctson.

In the final year of his contract, soon-to-be 30-year-old Garcon is set to count $10.2 million against the cap, and the Redskins can clear $8 million of that by releasing him. Already up against the cap after inking CB Josh Norman to a big deal last week, the Redskins plan to stand pat and ease in Doctson. Cutting WR Andre Roberts and his $4 million salary should be as easier call.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson said his wrist is 100 percent.

Doctson broke his wrist in November and missed TCU's final three games, but he's recovered now and shouldn't have any restrictions during OTAs. The 23-year-old was a surprise pick by the Redskins. The addition of Doctson should prompt Washington to release one of their veteran wide receivers.
