Of course this draft matters for the Redskins. But, aside from hoping they draft linemen and defensive backs, it has no buzz for the Skins. Probably because they don’t have a first-rounder nor do they need a QB, and I don’t know any college players that aren’t QBs.
Plus, the Skins haven’t had good fortune in the second round. Washington is clearly one of the worst-drafting teams overall, and the second round has been particularly unkind:
1980 — Matt Mendenhall
1982 — Vernon Dean
1983 — Richard Williams
1984 — Bob Slater and Steve Hamilton
1985 — Tory Nixon
1986 — Markus Koch and Walter Murray
1987 — Brian Davis and Wally Kleine
1988 — Chip Lohmiller
1990 — Andre Collins
1992 — Shane Collins
1993 — Reggie Brooks
1994 — Tre Johnson
1995 — Cory Raymer
1997 — Greg Jones
1998 — Stephen Alexander
1999 — Jon Jansen
2001 — Fred Smoot
2002 — Ladell Betts
2003 — Taylor Jacobs
2006 — Rocky McIntosh
2008 — Devin Thomas, Fred Davis and Malcolm Kelly
2011 — Jarvis Jenkins
