After the signing of DeSean Jackson recently, the Washington Redskins are not exactly short on weapons on offense. You add Jackson into the mix with a healthy RGIII, Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss and Alfred Morris, that’s a pretty dangerous lineup.
However, that won’t mean anything if there’s no one up front that can block for them, and that’s why, according to NFL.com, the team will likely target Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandijo in the second round of the NFL Draft next month.
“Alabama, a power running team. Cyrus Kouandjiocould be available,” NFL Media analyst Charles Davis said on NFL Network’s “Path to the Draft”. “We all see him as a left tackle, but he could very well fit in at right tackle there with the 34th pick.”
Kouandijo was one of the hottest prospects coming out of college at his position, but knee issues have scared some scouts off, issues which he’s assured people are not going to be an issue at the next level.
Going big for the Redskins with their first pick is the most logical option at this point.
