5 UDFAs Who Will Make the Washington Redskins' 53-Man Roster

After not having a first-round pound in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins did a decent job filling needs throughout the draft. After the draft was over, the Redskins also did a good job signing players in the UDFA period. Here are five UDFAs who will make the final 53-man roster.

Though his size is not desirable at 5-foot-10, 195 pounds, L.J. Jones is a smart football player that can be a contributor on special teams. He could also be the No. 4 cornerback on this roster, given how bad this secondary is. The thing that jumps out with Jones is how productive he was at Fresno State. Jones has a solid shot at making the roster. He could end up being a gunner on special teams.

Chris Davenport was supposed to transfer to Tulane to play defensive, but the LSU offensive tackle then decided to declare for the draft. At 6-foot-4, 320 pounds, with small arms, Davenport will most likely move to the guard position in the NFL. There isn't a ton of depth behind Chris Chester and Spencer Long, and Davenport could provide that.

3. Quandon Christian

Quandon Christian was a co-captain for the Clemson Tigers last season and his versatility was on full display. At 6-foot-2, 235 pounds, Christian is a tall, quick linebacker who could end up being a steal. Christian has trouble finding the holes in the running game, but he does a great job at defending tight ends in the passing game.

2. Silas Redd

Silas Redd's college career fell off after he transferred from Penn State to USC. Redd came to Penn State as a highly-touted recruit. He runs with purpose and he has great vision to go with it. Redd runs like a bowling ball and that could be of use in Washington's offense. Redd could take Evan Royster's role because of his power-running style.

Cody Hoffman was a fourth- to fifth-round pick in my opinion. Instead, the BYU product went undrafted and the Redskins may have gotten the receiver gem of the UDFAs. At 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, Hoffman has the body to put on bulk for the next level. The big concern with Hoffman is that he is a long-strider. Although the Redskins have three competent receivers in DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garçon, and Andre Roberts, Hoffman could be a good No. 4 option.
