First Down: Five NFL Draft prospects for Redskins
TWT FIVE " PROSPECTS WHO CAN HELP THE REDSKINS
With the end of the season near, the 4-10 Redskins will have a draft board to assemble. These players should be on their list:
1. Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State - The top blocker in the draft would fill Washington's biggest need.
2. Eric Berry, S, Tennessee - A ballhawk in the mold of Ed Reed, he can play deep while LaRon Landry stays near the line of scrimmage.
3. Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers - Put him at either bookend to help keep Jason Campbell upright.
4. C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson - Even if Clinton Portis comes back, the Redskins will need a front-line running back.
5. Joe Haden, CB, Florida - With Carlos Rogers, Justin Tryon and Fred Smoot questionable at best opposite DeAngelo Hall, Haden could step right in and start.
