21. Washington Redskins What’s New in 2019: Former Patriots legend Kevin O’Connell becomes the new OC after two seasons as the team’s quarterbacks coach Landon Collins was the team’s big FA splash move. Ereck Flowers was signed to 'help' the offensive line and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was picked-up to help bolster the secondary. A whole new franchise quarterback to call their very own in Dwayne Haskins via the draft. Washington navigated yet another weird power struggle at the top, to somehow land one of the league’s best rookie classes. Roster Strengths: Defensive line – Jonathan Allen, Da’Ron Payne and Matt Ioannidis has a real nice mix of power and disruption to it Edge – Preston Smith has eloped to Green Bay, but the team still have Ryan Kerrigan who has put together one of the quietest fringe HOF caliber careers you’ll ever see. Last year’s 2nd rounder Ryan Anderson is stout presence on the edge and new 1st round pick Montez Sweat could be an absolute steal where at where he landed. Elsewhere – The secondary has some bright spots in Josh Norman and FA signing Landon Collins, with some intriguing names at corner who may emerge. Running back too has plenty of talent, albeit viewed through a blurry lens with Adrian Peterson’s rising age and the health concerns around Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson. Roster Weaknesses: Middle Linebacker – With no Reuben Foster for 2019, they’ll be searching for starters amongst Mason Foster who has been serviceable (at best) and then you have well-travelled, but not well-liked Jon Bostic and recent later round picks Shaun Dion Hamilton and Josh Harvey-Clemons. Dion Hamilton is probably the most intriguing of that trio. Free Safety – There’s a bit of a vacancy at free safety in the wake of DJ Swearinger’s departure. Left guard – Ereck Flowers is pencilled in at this spot currently, which cannot be ideal. Internally they might be hoping rookie Wes Martin can beat him out. Elsewhere – It’s worth mentioning the Trent Williams situation, because if that’s not settled they potentially go from an all-pro to a back-up caliber player at left tackle in an instant Breakout Player: Derrius Guice – The 59th overall pick last year tore his ACL in preseason after a rocky draft season. He could be bring some real juice to the running back position if he can reach full health before the season starts. How they can win in 2019: One offense, Dwayne Haskins has to win the quarterback job and have earned the right to it. His ceiling far exceeds his veteran counterparts and can set the passing game alight if Jay Gruden and O’Connell can lay a sensible passing attack around him. A season of good health from Jordan Reed could really open the passing attack and there are young players who can emerge at receiver - finally. Getting good protection is important, because as was well noted during the draft process, Haskins isn’t the most mobile. Trent Williams is obviously hugely important for how this side of the ball performs in both facets and that's a big unknown right now.  On defense, Manusky can field a very tough front five from snap to snap and that can become the identity of this whole team. Finding a combination that works at linebacker behind that group becomes important and that need to emerge. At cornerback, they just have to identify who their starting group is, obviously Josh Norman is fine on one side of the field. Rodgers-Cromartie could be pencilled in to play free safety according to early reports, which leaves Jimmy Moreland as someone who could be a real x-factor in the slot, but that’s a lot to ask for in year one from a small school 7th round pick and they already have some interesting names there.  Fabian Moreau has been okay as a starter and has space to grow, but needs to take a next step and Greg Stroman is small but has plenty to like. Predicted record 2019: 7-9 – It could easily be a better year in Washington with a roster full of emerging talent and a favorable schedule, but there are a few too many questions about the shape of the offense to make a sunnier prediction
