The Washington Redskins are coming off a disastrous season in which the team went 3-13. Although the team has plenty of young talent, the rebuilding clearly isn't done which is why the team must nail the 2014 NFL Draft. With that said, ladies and gentlemen, a post-free agency Washington Redskins mock draft.

If the Redskins are serious about winning in the future, they absolutely must surround RGIII with more weapons on offense. Davante Adams is a big guy at 6-foot-1 and would provide the offense with some great playmaking ability.

Round 3: Louchiez Purifoy

The Redskins need all sorts of help in the secondary, and with DeAngelo Hall another year older, the team really needs help at the cornerback position. Louchiez Purifoy fits the mold as a good cover man with great size, however, he will need to clean up his technique.

Round 4: Cyril Richardson

Washington needs to make sure their offensive line is nice and solid, and Cyril Richardson is a great start. With great toughness, and ability, Richardson would be a great way for the Redskins to begin the rebuilding of their offensive line.

The center position has been a mess for the Redskins, but by picking up the draft’s best prospect at the position, the team has an opportunity to solidify the position for the next 10 years.

Round 6: Jeff Janis

The Redskins know they could never have enough weapons on offense. By drafting Jeff Janis here, the team is getting one of the fastest players in the draft and a receiver who could become one of RGIII’s favorite targets.

Round 7: Derrell Johnson

Washington needs depth at the outside linebacker position. Derrell Johnson has potential for the future, but for right now, he would be a great depth pick.
