2007 RECORD: 9-7

LAST SEASON: In a season overshadowed by the death of safety Sean Taylor, the Redskins rallied to win four straight and snag a playoff berth. After a first-round loss to Seattle, coach Joe Gibbs retired and was replaced by Seattle quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn.

THEY NEED: Pass-rushing DE, big WR to fit into Zorn's West Coast offense, safety.


POSSIBLE FIRST PICK: DE Phillip Merling, Clemson.

OUTLOOK: It's quite a leap from a Hall of Fame coach to a first-timer who has never even been a coordinator in the NFL. Zorn will have to adjust to the job. The team will have to adjust to his West Coast offense. Even the front office approached the offseason with a new attitude, emphasizing the draft over free agency. If Zorn needs time to master a steep learning curve, and if QB Jason Campbell falters while learning yet another new playbook, the momentum from last year's late-season run will be lost.
