The months of March (Free Agency) and April (NFL Draft) are where NFL teams address their needs and envision the new makeup of their team. For the Redskins, along with the rest of the NFL, the months of May and June are for organized team activities and minicamps. The coaching staff will get early looks to see precisely where they are with some of their younger players, and what they will need to address by the time training camp arrives. So for Washington, it begs the question - As we head into May and June, have the Redskins done enough to upgrade their offense? Offensive Concerns/Needs for Washington heading into the off-season:Quarterback: The Redskins were left in a crisis, both from the injury and financial aspects, at this position. Alex Smith signed a contract extension in early 2018 which was a huge reason for the trade being executed without issues. Unfortunately for Alex, he suffered a career-threatening injury towards the end of the season that has dramatically impacted the possibilities of him returning for 2019 or even beyond. Not only did Alex Smith get injured, but Colt McCoy also suffered a broken bone in his leg that has threatened his chances of being ready for the start of 2019 training camp. How did Washington address that? The Redskins traded for Case Keenum, restructured his contract, and drafted Ohio State’s quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the first round. Two reasonable moves, one being to bring in a veteran presence who can come in and be a serviceable quarterback at the very least, while the other is a move for the future of this franchise, adding a quarterback who can be built around to maximize his production. Running Back: Following the 2018 season, the only two running backs on this roster who were clear cut final-53 players were Derruis Guice and Chris Thompson. The Redskins and Adrian Peterson came to terms, while also re-signing Byron Marshall. The lingering issue here - injuries have been a factor to the production out of this position group. The re-signing of Peterson and Marshall was good, but the staff felt the need to continue addressing the position, which made sense. The Redskins took a chance on Stanford’s star running back Bryce Love in the fourth round of the NFL draft. He is coming off a torn ACL injury, which begs the question of whether they upgraded the position by bringing in an injured player to fill out a depth chart with Guice and Thompson, both of whom have injury histories? It is a play for the future that the Redskins are primarily banking on with Love.Wide Receiver: The Redskins had one of the three worst receiver groups in the NFL last year in terms of production. There was no question that the Redskins needed a boost at this position group; 2016 first-round draft pick Josh Doctson has not lived up to expectations, and with the departure of Jamison Crowder, it leaves Paul Richardson (also with an injury history) as the only receiver on the roster with any significant NFL experience. The Redskins are relying on younger players like Trey Quinn, Robert Davis, Cam Sims, Jehu Chesson, and Darvin Kidsy to make significant leaps this offseason and preseason. Cam Sims and Trey Quinn will likely get the most opportunities out of the group, but be open to the possibility of others making a case for themselves. However the Redskins did not stop there; they addressed the receiver position by drafting two more young players with hopes of filling out their roster even more. The Redskins drafted Ohio State’s Terry Mclaurin in the third round. Terry provides Washington with some versatility; he is an adequate pass-catcher and can be a factor in the run game. Also, like Trey Quinn, McLaurin can be a presence on special teams coverage units. All of the NFL desires his speed; however, he has to improve in the nuances of being a receiver before being considered anything more than a compliment to an offense. The Redskins also drafted Kelvin Harmon in the sixth round out of North Carolina State.In the group of young wideouts Dwayne Haskins Jersey , Harmon is the one who is closest to having number one potential as a wide receiver for the Redskins, which was the most significant thing lacking from this position group for Jay Gruden last season. Tight End: The Redskins brought back Jeremy Sprinkle, Vernon Davis, and Jordan Reed at this position group, also bringing back the same issues they’ve had at the position for the previous two years. There is no room for versatility, and the position group is pretty predictable overall. Jay Gruden himself stated the need for a versatile tight end — one who can block as well as be an adequate pass-catcher. Washington did not address that need at all. It is not the end of the world; you cannot address everything in one off-season. Still, the issues at this position will continue to linger and affect the run game in a significant way. Interior Offensive Line (IOL): The Redskins attacked this position in one of the better ways possible; that is, through the NFL draft. With years of dealing with ineffectiveness at the left guard position, in addition to a plethora of injuries, Washington sought to draft versatile linemen, capable of playing multiple positions on the offensive line. Ereck Flowers was signed in the off-season with the hopes that Bill Callahan’s tutelage would provide a stress-free transition from tackle to guard. Thoughts on Flowers are the following - Good luck. However, the Redskins still recognized the need at the guard position and addressed it very well, at least from a draft perspective,where they invested picks in Wes Martin andRoss Pierschbacher. Off-season Grade: B-The Redskins, overall, addressed all but one position group that needed addressing. The quarterback acquisitions were outstanding and include a plan for the future with Dwayne Haskins. The IOL has increased depth and competent candidates who are, at the moment, unproven, but seemingly serviceable. This is the same for the receiver acquisitions.With the uncertainty of maybe not having a number one receiver on the roster, someone will need to step up in that position group. Lastly, the running back position is solidified for the 2019 season, but groundwork has also been laid for the future that will be obvious when Love is ready to take the field. The Redskins did good things in the offseason, but not great.

In the stock market, which was the central model that the 538 article started with, buyers and sellers are trading stocks, which have the characteristics of commodities.In economics, the term commodity is used specifically for economic goods or services that have full or partial but substantial fungibility; that is, individual units are essentially interchangeable, and each of its parts is indistinguishable from another part.Think of one ounce silver or gold ingots. They all have the same size, shape, weight and color. One is like the next, and each has the same value.If you are buying a ton of wheat, one ton is much like the next. Karl Marx described this property as follows: “From the taste of wheat Wes Martin Jersey , it is not possible to tell who produced it — a Russian serf, a French peasant or an English capitalist.”Petroleum and copper are other examples of commodity goods; their supply and demand are a part of one universal market.The stock market is the same. Once a price is set for a share of, say, IBM, Microsoft or Starbucks, it doesn’t matter whether the buyer purchases a bundle of shares all from a single seller or aggregates the purchase from a dozen different sellers; the product (the share itself) is indistinguishable one from the next.Not so with NFL players — the grist in the mill of the NFL draft. Unlike grist, NFL players are not commodities. Each player is different, and each will carve a unique path in his future career.One might argue that they can, to a large extent, be graded (like, say cuts of beef) to make them more like commodities, and to some extent that’s true. Isn’t that largely the intent of the annual NFL combine — to use standard ‘grading’ in order to create a uniformly informed market of ‘buyers’ among the 32 NFL franchises?Still, even after all the measuring and sorting has been done, the draft is about analysis of individuals across a wide array of tangible and intangible characteristics, and there isn’t even one absolute “best” standard for players; often, a player’s value is affected by how he “fits” a particular team’s culture and roster needs.In short, the evaluation of players in a model that treats them like commodities that can be easily graded (using AV) like cuts of meat ignores a huge number of realities in the NFL.The argument for trading up to get your franchise quarterbackRealizing that the argument put forward in the 538 article was flawed, I authored a new article more recently that tried to explain why NFL teams are forced by the rules of parity — salary cap, free agency, the draft, and so on — trade up in the draft in search of a franchise quarterback.Trading up is actually a pot-luck affairHowever, that article glossed over a huge problem: a high draft pick doesn’t guarantee that the player selected will actually develop into the franchise cornerstone that the team is hoping for, and the front office might well burn up a lot of draft capital to acquire that premium draft pick and get no real payoff on its investment.There are questions about Jameis Winston that need to be answered soon; the Jaguars seem to have finally answered all their questions about Blake Bortles, resulting in his release;the first QB off the board in 2013 was the 13th pick, and not a single quarterback from that class has developed into a reliable starter; we all know the RG3 story by heart, and 8th overall pick Ryan Tannehill seems to have finally washed out without ever really succeeding.The fact is, successful quarterbacks are more likely to come from outside the top-10 picks in the draft.Consider the draft position of these NFL signal callers:Lamar Jackson 32nd overallDeshaun Watson 12th overallDak Prescott 135th overallTeddy Bridgewater 32nd overallDerek Carr 36th overallJimmy Garoppolo 62nd overallRussell Wilson 75th overallNick Foles 88th overallKirk Cousins 102nd overallAndy Dalton 35th overallTyrod Taylor 180th overallColt McCoy 85th overallCase Keenum UndraftedJoe Flacco 18th overallAaron Rodgers 24th overallRyan Fitzpatrick 250th overallBen Rothlisberger 11th overallDrew Brees 32nd overallTom Brady 199th overallThat’s 19 quarterbacks, with at least 16 of them likely to be opening day starters, drafted outside of the top-ten picks.Here are the other likely 2019 starters who were drafted in the top-10: (4) 2018: Mayfield, Darnold, Allen, Rosen(2) 2017: Trubisky, Mahomes(2) 2016: Goff Womens Bryce Love Jersey , Wentz(2) 2015: Winston, Mariota(1) 2012: Luck(1) 2011: Newton(1) 2008: Matt Ryan(1) 2005: Eli ManningThat’s 14 quarterbacks drafted in the top-10, still in the NFL, healthy, and likely to start for their teams on opening day in September.From the first group, 12 players were taken in the 2nd round or later (and one was undrafted!).What this tells us is one very simple fact:If you want to draft a starting quarterback for your franchise, you don’t have to be drafting in the top-10.You don’t even have to be drafting in the first round!Look at 2014, when Jimmy Garoppolo and Derek Carr were taken in the second round (with Bridgewater taken #32 overall).Or, look two years earlier to 2012, when Russell Wilson & Nick Foles were drafted in the 3rd, and Kirk Cousins was taken in the 4th.Do you want the good news first, or the bad news?The good news, if you need a quarterback for your franchise, is that you don’t need to be picking at the top of the draft to get your guy.Starting quarterbacks can be found anywhere in the first round, and often in the 2nd.Today’s current crop of starters includes players taken in the 3rd, 4th and (famously in the case of Tom Brady) 6th rounds. great record at identifying the best quarterback in the class.In 2017, Trubisky was drafted 8 spots ahead of Mahomes.In 2016, here are the 5 quarterbacks that came off the board after Wentz but before Dak Prescott: Paxton Lynch, Christian Hackenberg, Jacoby Brissett, Cody Kessler, Conner Cook.In 2014, Johnny Manziel was the 2nd QB taken — ahead of Bridgewater, Carr and Garoppolo.In 2012, Weeden & Osweiler were drafted before Russell Wilson, Nick Foles and Kirk Cousins.In 2011, Locker, Gabbert & Ponder went ahead of Andy Dalton.Starting quarterbacks can be drafted anywhere in the first round — they don’t have to be the top two guys off the board.In addition, plenty of starters have been drafted in the 2nd, with a few even coming in the 3rd or 4th rounds.is likely to develop well enough to win with this defense-first strategy.The lottery for a top-3 draft pick is a proven way to burn up draft capital on high risk investments.Getting a top-tier quarterback in any of those ways is expensive (in dollars or draft capital) and unreliable in terms of results, as history has shown.It took the Redskins half a decade to recover from the RG3 trade.Other teams (like the Jags with Bortles or the ‘Phins with Tannehill) have spent years wasting competitive opportunities because they had too much invested in the drafted starter to cut bait.But stocking every position group with top tier talent to help out a middling quarterback who simply takes care of the football and doesn’t lose the game — now that’s a strategy that can be implemented successfully and maintained over a long period of time.That’s ‘Plan B’.That’s the plan the Redskins need.
