The Washington Redskins had Rex Grossman under center in 2011 and the signal caller could complete just 57.9% of his passes for 3151 yards with 16 touchdowns and 20 picks. The combination of Grossman and Beck accounted for 24 of the teams 35 turnovers in 2011 which ranked 30th out of 32 NFL teams. The team had little confidence in back up John Beck and was heavily scrutinized during the 2011 offseason for not pursing a so called quarterback as the future. So after a last place finish in the NFC East a season ago the Redskins traded up and drafted high enough to find their quarterback of the future as Robert Griffin III fell into their laps. The Redskins showed some improvement to their ground game last year with the addition of Tim Hightower’s speed in the backfield. Linebackers had to respect Hightower’s speed into the hole and to the outside which bought more time in the pocket for Grossman. Hightower returns healthy and the club will rotate in Roy Helu and Evan Royster who are young legs with plenty of wear left in their tires. In 2012 the Redskins added former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Pierre Garcon to their corps to supplement the production of Santana Moss and tight end Fred Davis. On defense he club was the 13th rank unit in the NFL a season ago by allowing 339 yards per game. Teams threw for 221 yards against the Redskins last year which was 12th best in the league.
