2008 RECORD: 8-8

LAST SEASON: Started 6-2 under rookie coach Jim Zorn but faded down stretch as offense ground to a halt in very tough division.

THEY NEED: DE, OLB, OL.

THEY DON'T NEED: DT, MLB.

POSSIBLE FIRST PICK: Sanchez.

OUTLOOK: Owner Dan Snyder demonstrated his lack of faith in QB Jason Campbell by trying to swing trade with Denver for Jay Cutler, but Redskins' problems are far deeper. Both lines are aging - although $100 million DT Albert Haynesworth should help defense muster some overdue pressure on QB, and free agent G Derrick Dockery will boost OL. Zorn's West Coast offense produced only three plays of 40 yards or more all season, a deficiency due to disappointing receiver corps, lack of game-breaking runs from Clinton Portis, and - yes - Campbell's play-it-safe approach (13 TDs, 6 INTs). Sanchez will tempt Snyder if USC star is available, even though there are greater needs elsewhere.
