Jay Gruden discusses how he'll shape the offense

Outside of Trent Williams, no player on the Redskins offensive line impressed in 2013. In fact, considering how good Williams can be, his season wasn't his best. The offensive line needs work, and right tackle could certainly use some improvement.

Tyler Polumbus started at right tackle last season, and the results were not pretty. Often, defenders got past Polumbus, invaded the backfield and laid big hits on Robert Griffin III. While Polumbus may have gotten more criticism than he deserved, it remains Washington needs better play up front.

So what should the Redskins do? A favorite of the Shanahan regime, Polumbus is under contract for another season. There are plenty of good options available in the draft, but with so many needs, can the Skins take a guard early? Washington had much success with a right tackle from Michigan in Jon Jansen in the last decade, should the Skins again go to the Wolverines with a late-round pick on Michael Schofield? The draft will yield plenty of options, but should the Skins look to add a veteran tackle via free agency?

Let us know what you think in the comments.
