Washington Redskins: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Robert Griffin III

The Washington Redskins selected Robert Griffin III with the 2nd pick in the 2012 NFL draft. The Redskins sacrificed a great deal to acquire this draft pick giving the Rams four draft picks over three years: their No. 6 overall pick in 2012, their second-round pick in 2012, and their first-round picks in 2013 and 2014. Griffin was the Heisman Trophy Winner in 2011 and was widely considered the best player in College Football that season. Griffin is a duel-threat who is just as capable of making a big play rushing as he is passing. In 2012, Griffin repaid the faith placed in him by the redskins, displaying one of the best rookie seasons in NFL history resulting in the offensive rookie of the year award and ultimately guiding the Redskins to their first divisional championship since 1999. He suffered some injury issues in 2013 but still finished the season as strong as 2012, he ran over 3,200 yards with a passer rating of 82.2. He was rested for the last three games of the season, so hopefully he will be back strong for 2014.

Offensive Star: Alfred Morris

Alfred Morris was selected in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. The day before the 2012 season opener, Morris was announced as starting running back. He finished the season with a total of 1,613 rushing yards and thirteen touchdowns, breaking Clinton Portisí rushing record for a single-season of 1,516 yards and Charley Taylor's record of most touchdowns scored in rookie season of ten touchdowns. Morris also became the fourth player in NFL history to ever record over 1,600 rushing yards in his rookie year. Prior to the 2013 season, Morris was named to the NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2013 at #64. Although not as productive as the previous season, Morris still finished 4th in the league in rushing yardage with 1,275. On January 17, it was announced that Morris would play in the 2014 Pro Bowl, after originally being selected as an alternate. Morris is the Redskinsí strongest hope for 2014.

Defensive Star: Perry Riley

Perry Riley was selected by the Redskins in the fourth round (103rd overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft. Riley has been slowly growing as an inside linebacker during his time with the Redskins. Long-time defensive captain London Fletcher personally supported Riley and was instrumental in his re-signing with the side after Fletcher announced his retirement. Riley finished 2013 with 115 total tackles and 3 sacks. Riley still needs to develop but with the spotlight on him in 2014, itís his time to shine.

Head Coach: Jay Gruden

In January 2014, Gruden was hired as the new head coach of the Washington Redskins, succeeding Mike Shanahan. Gruden has a history of coaching and playing within the AFL as well as the NFL. During his time in the Arena Football League, he won four ArenaBowls as a player and two more as a head coach. From 2002 to 2008 he served as an offensive assistant for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under his brother, head coach Jon Gruden, earning a Super Bowl ring for the Bucs' win in Super Bowl XXXVII. He left the team after his brother was fired following the 2008 season. With an extensive history in both AFL and NFL, The Redskins are hoping Gruden can bring them back from an abysmal 3-13 losing season.
