Here is a quick look at some of the players the Redskins have signed as undrafted free agents this week. Look for more capsules later today.

Chris Davenport, NT, Tulane—He was a five-star recruit as an offensive lineman in high school and was on the roster at LSU for four years. He seldom played, however, and after graduating from LSU he decided to enroll at Tulane for a fifth year. They flipped him to the defensive side of the ball and he was an honorable mention on the All-Conference USA team. At 6-3, 330 he is a load in the middle of the line.

Lee Doss, WR, Southern—The 6-2 Doss was a highly productive receiver over the last two years with a combined 120 receptions for 1,474 yards and 15 touchdowns. Doss capped his career with a 16-yard touchdown pass in the second overtime to win the SWAC championship game. He transferred from Selma University to Southern and had to walk on.

Cody Hoffman, WR BYU—Of the undrafted players signed by the Redskins, many give Hoffman the best chance of making the team. Jay Gruden like tall wide receivers but he still doesn’t have many of them on the roster. At 6-4, Hoffman fills the bill. Hoffman owns BYU's all-time records for receptions (260), receiving yards (3,612), receiving touchdowns (33) and all-purpose yards (5,105). He has battled injuries including a torn rib cartilage and a torn labrum.

Kofi Hughes, WR, Indiana—Hughes is another receiver who is on the tall side, standing 6-2. He has decent speed, running a 4.49 40-yard dash during the Hoosiers’ Pro Day. Indiana’s offense was nothing to write home about but Hughes still managed to catch seven touchdown passes (47 receptions, 739 yards). 

Update: The Redskins have announced these signings plus that of Tommy Rees, former Notre Dame quarterback. We did a post on him earlier this week.
