The Washington Redskins did not have a first-round pick again this year due to the Robert Griffin trade in 2012, but they were able to add eight players to the mix in an effort to fortify their roster.

Here's a look at the impact each of Washington's 2014 draft picks could have during the coming season.

Trent Murphy, OLB, Stanford-2nd Round, #47 Overall

Murphy finished his college career with 32.5 sacks and 52.5 tackles for loss, but there are questions about his athleticism as he transitions to the NFL. That said, he should fit nicely as a backup to Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo.

Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia-3rd Round, #66 Overall

Moses is a potential steal in the third round based on his physical tools, and he could be the Redskins' starting right tackle before too long.

Spencer Long, OG, Nebraska-3rd Round, #78 Overall

Long's senior season at Nebraska ended early due to a torn MCL, but he is healthy now and expected to push Chris Chester for the starting job at right guard.

Washington needed more depth in the secondary, and Breeland's ability to play both corner and safety may allow him to stick as a backup and special teamer.

Ryan Grant, WR, Tulane-5th Round, #142 Overall

Grant had 153 receptions over his final two seasons at Tulane, but in a best-case scenario as a rookie he may earn a roster spot as Washington's No. 4 or No. 5 wide receiver.

Seastrunk will compete for a spot on the 53-man roster during training camp and the preseason, but he may be destined for the practice squad as he works to become a better pass catcher (nine receptions in two seasons at Baylor).

Ted Bolser, TE, Indiana-7th Round, #217 Overall

Bolser could earn a roster spot as a backup tight end and special teamer, but the Redskins would likely have to carry four tight ends on the 53-man roster in that scenario.

Hocker may be given a chance to beat out Kai Forbath, but just how open the competition will be is still a question.
