No point in fighting it: It's March Madness and everyone is staring at brackets. So let's embrace the March format, and figure out who makes the Redskins Elite 8.
1) Robert Griffin III -- At his peak, RG3 is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. Will he get back to the level we saw in 2012?
2) Trent Williams -- A beast at one of the most important positions on the field. Top-five in the league.
3) Pierre Garçon -- The Waiter showed his explosiveness in 2013, setting a new team record for receptions. With a healthy RG3, Garçon could post video game numbers.
4) Ryan Kerrigan -- A solid linebacker with a knack for big plays, #91 barely outranks his counterpart OLB thanks to better pass coverge skill.
5) Brian Orakpo -- The Redskins franchise player in 2014, the big man from Texas posts strong sack totals when healthy. Can he make the leap to elite?
6) Alfred Morris -- In two seasons the home run hitter amassed almost 3,000 yards on the ground to go with 20 touchdowns. Morris is a beast with the ball, but lacks great pass-catching skill and is not the best blocker.
7) Jason Hatcher -- Washington's most pricy free agent signing, 2013 was Hatcher's best season in a nine-year career. He played like a disruptive force for the Cowboys from the middle of the line, can he reproduce it in 2014 for the Skins?
8) DeAngelo Hall -- Few players incite greater debate than D-Hall, but he is the best cornerback on the roster. He may get beat deep on occasion, but he also has proven ballhawking skills and usually covers the opposition's best WR.
