Draft: Cornerback

Over the next few weeks, LETS GO REDSKINS will review Washington’s options in next month’s NFL Draft, position by position. The Redskins struggled defending both the run and the pass in 2016.

Norman- The Draft Impact

Norman- The Draft Impact

Friday night’s huge free agent addition of corner Josh Norman has wide ranging impact on the Redskins.
