Defensive Line
A-
This line should keep the linebackers free.

When Foster comes back, if he stays on the field this could be an A+ unit.

Norman and Collins offer some star power. They need their recent draft choices to step up for consistency.

Overall Coaching / School Analysis
Gruden has worked wonders with a roster built, largely, by Bruce Allen. Gruden will probably take the fall for the teams performance this season, which is certain to be among the worst in the league.

Expectations/ Outlook
I expect Washington to find itself in the drivers seat for the first pick in the draft next season. The defense should be good though.
