Redskins Insider: January 23, 2011 - January 29, 2011

Washington Redskins draft: Help for 3-4 defense could be available

One of the problems with the Redskins' defensive scheme was the imbalance in the pass rush. Brian Orakpo was able to pressure the quarterback but opposing teams didn't have to worry about the other side as much. This year's draft could provide a big opportunity to address that problem. Scouts...

Kiper believes Redskins will take Cam Newton

Baylor's Phil Taylor is biggest man on campus

It shouldn't surprise anyone if the Redskins find a way to field at least two -- and maybe three -- new starting defensive linemen next season. There are plenty of prospects available in the draft and one of the more intriguing players competing here in Mobile, Ala., at the Senior...
