Robert Davis was drafted with the 209th overall pick in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Washington Redskins. The Redskins lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, but Davis still enters a crowded depth chart, with Washington previously making some big offseason moves. If he can manage to see the field, he gives Washington another red-zone threat. The Redskins brought in Terrelle Pryor and Brian Quick in the offseason to join Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson as the primary receivers competing for touches. Ryan Grant, Maurice Harris, Matt Hazel, and Kendal Thompson all return from last season. Washington also signed three undrafted receivers, Zach Pascal, James Quick, and Levern Jacobs, bringing the total number of WRs on their roster (including Davis) to 12. Needless to say, not all of them will be on the team when the season begins. Before getting into the Redskins’ team outlook in greater depth, let’s take a closer look at the first rookie WR they added this year.
