The Big Question: Will Amerson be a boom or bust?
The Redskins didn't have a first-round draft pick, so David Amerson will get the attention of a top selection. He has the talent to match. Amerson made 13 interceptions as a sophomore at N.C. State, but he gambled too much and was beat often as a junior. He has first-round ability in terms of his physical tools and is known for his competitiveness, but he just didn't play well last year.
NFL Network's Mike Mayock called Amerson a "boom or bust" player with a chance to play right away. The veterans ahead of him -- Josh Wilson, DeAngelo Hall and E.J. Biggers -- all are year-to-year players by now. Amerson should start in 2013. Safeties Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo also could be asked to play bigger roles sooner rather than later because the Redskins are so thin in the secondary.
3. Running back Chris Thompson out of Florida State is worth watching in fantasy leagues just because of Shanahan's hit rate on late-round players at his position. Thompson ideally would fill a third-down/return role behind Alfred Morris.Follow Gregg Rosenthal on Twitter @greggrosenthal.
