Since Dan Snyder bought the Redskins in 1999, there have been many solid draft selections to go along with the questionable ones as well. Since Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen have taken over draft duties, Skins fans have had sort of a relief in trusting the guys in charge as opposed to most of the Vinny Cerrato era. Regardless of who has been making the selections, there has been plenty of rookie success during the Dan Snyder era. These are the my top 10 Redskins rookie campaigns since 2000:   10. Carlos Rogers 46 tackles, 2 interceptions               9. Chris Horton 76 tackles, 1 sack, 3 interceptions             8. Chris Cooley 37 receptions, 314 yards, 6 TDs               7. Lavar Arrington 54 tackles, 4 sacks             6. Laron Landry 95 tackles, 1.5 sacks               5. Alfred Morris 1613 yards, 13 TDs             4. Brian Orakpo 50 tackles, 11 sacks             3. Sean Taylor 76 tackles, 1 sack, 4 interceptions               2. Chris Samuels Stepped in and played like a pro bowl LT day 1               1. Robert Griffin, III Passing: 65%, 3200 yards, 20 TDs, 102.4 rating Rushing: 815 yards, 6.8 yard average, 7 TDs             Who do you guys have that I might have missed in my top 10 or do you have the order in a different way?   Related posts: Washington Redskins 2013 NFL Mock Draft Washington Redskins Breakout Candidates [VIDEO] Robert Griffin III’s Acceptance Speech for Offensive Rookie of the Year

Bacarri Rambo Impresses Coaches at Rookie Camp

Bacarri Rambo was drafted in the sixth round by the Washington Redskins after a solid career at Georgia that would have made most think he would be selected sooner.

Redskins reportedly still interested in Quentin Jammer

According to John Keim of the Washington Examiner, there’s still a chance the Redskins could end up signing veteran cornerback Quentin Jammer.

If the Redskins remain interested – still an if – any dialogue would start...

Handing Out Grades For The Redskins Draft Picks

I really don’t like doing draft grades this early but I think this draft class for the Washington Redskins is pretty special, so I figured I would get an early jump on it. With the Redskins going into the 2013 NFL draft without a 1st round pick due to trading up for Robert Griffin III last year, the Skins needed secondary help BAD after being in the bottom of the NFL in pass defense...
