Here is what you need to know on this Sunday, April 27, 11 days before the NFL draft.
Here are our five most popular posts from the week that was.
1. Redskins’ LB Brian Orakpo encouraged by scheme tweaks—The linebacker said that the players would have to “worry about being robots” and that the defense is going to “create havoc”.
2. Redskins workouts to start phase two—The Redskins are going to starting running actual football plays under Jay Gruden starting this week.
3. Will offense change under Jay Gruden? RGIII won’t say—With a new head coach got where he is on the offensive side of things, there are bound to be changes in the offence. Robert Griffin III was very non-specific when the talked about it.
