As the 2011 NFL Draft approaches, the Redskins will be hosting plenty of prospects at their facility in Ashburn in an effort to get to know some of their potential future players. According to Chris Russell, via Hogs Haven, the Redskins had a few late round running backs in recently, as well as an offensive lineman who might interest them with their first round pick.
Former VTech #Hokies RB & Manassas, VA native Ryan Williams will visit #Redskins Park for private meeting on April 14 & 15.
#Redskins will host USC OT Tyron Smith at #Redskins Park on April 18th. He's a perfect fit in zone.
#Redskins have recently 'expressed interest' in RBs Kendall Hunter (OKST) (Rd 2/3) & hell of a pass pro guy & Evan Royster (PSU) (RD 4-7).
It's no surprise that the Redskins are going to target a running back after they released Clinton Portis, and I think all three of these RB prospects would be good value where Russell projects them to go. As for Smith, he is a little bit of a project, but he could develop into an excellent bookend for Trent Williams for years to come. He might not have the bulk to play left tackle like a lot of teams would expect from a player picked in this range, but he could definitely be a competent right tackle, and a smart pick for the Redskins in the first round.
