Scot McCloughan only served as the Redskins GM for 18 months, but in that time, the roster changed significantly. Some moves were great, others, not so much.
- Jamison Crowder - Arguably the best move of the McCloughan era, Crowder was a 4th round draft pick in 2015. In two seasons with the Redskins, the slot star has totaled more than 1,400 receiving yards and given Washington their best punt returner since Brian Mitchell was returning kicks. With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon gone, the 2017 Redskins offense may run through the former Duke star.
- Vernon Davis - An aging former star that many in the NFL thought was past his prime, Davis came in and played well for Washington in 2016. Davis had 44 catches for nearly 600 yards to go with two touchdowns in 2016. More importantly for Washington, Davis proved a strong run blocker and a highly capable complement to Jordan Reed when they were on the field together, or a high-level backup when Reed missed games.
- Brandon Scherff - McCloughan's first draft pick with the Redskins, Scherff has developed into a Pro Bowl guard in just his second NFL season. The tough part for Scherff, even as a great player, the ceiling for a guard is somewhat limited, and some fans will always wonder if Leonard Williams might have been the better fit in Washington at the 5th pick in the 2015 Draft.
- Robert Kelley - An undrafted free agent out of Tulane, Kelley proved highly capable of taking the RB1 role for the Redskins in the second half of the 2016 season.
- Mason Foster - Not all of McCloughan's best work came in the draft. Signing Foster gave some stability to the middle linebacker position, and Foster led the team in tackles in 2016.
- Will Blackmon - Similar to Foster, Blackmon came in and immediately helped the Redskins. With a professional attitude and strong locker room presence, Blackmon made plays at cornerback in 2015. Switched to safety in 2016, Blackmon's play was a work in progress, but he will help younger players in 2017 and beyond.
- Josh Norman - The biggest free agent signing of the McCloughan era, Norman played well in his first season with the 'Skins. Plagued by penalties and an inability to hang on to interceptions, Norman could make a bigger impact in 2017.
- Su'a Cravens - No doubt a playmaker as a rookie, Cravens arguably saved the Redskins season with a win-sealing interception against the Giants in Week 3 of the 2016 season. If his move to safety in 2017 pans out, it will be a huge swing for the Redskins.
- Preston Smith - Showed great promise as a rookie, but his stats slid backwards in his second season. Talented and with strong physical gifts, fans hope for a return to his rookie ways in his third year.
- Ricky Jean François - A veteran with heart and ability, François will likely see the field more with the dismissal of former defensive coordinator Joe Barry.

- Matt Jones - Going into just his third season with the 'Skins, Jones still has time to reverse course. But in two seasons with the Redskins, Jones has lost the starting RB job to Kelley and proceeded to be inactive for the bulk of the second half of the 2016 season. Plagued by fumble problems, Jones has all the physical tools to suceed, just needs to prove it.
- David Bruton - A career special teamer for seven years in Denver, the Redskins decided Bruton could be their starting safety in 2016. He couldn't. This was a big miss, and Bruton did not finish the season with the team after a concussion sent him to the IR in October.
- Stepehen Paea - Signed by the Redskins in 2015, Paea never showed the 6 sack, disruptive performance he delivered in Chicago in 2014. The 'Skins cut Paea in training camp in 2016.
- Kendall Reyes - Another defensive line signing, Reyes was terrible in his brief tenure with Washington. He played just two games with the 'Skins in 2016 before he was released.
- Josh Doctson - Far too early to judge his career, but his rookie season was a miss. An Achilles injury limited Doctson to just two games in 2016. Washington will need much more from their 2016 first-round pick this season after the loss of Jackson and Garçon.
Plenty more personnel moves can fit into the great, good or miss category. This is just a snapshot of McCloughan's work as general manager. Let us know what you think in the comments.
