You won’t believe how high Brandon Scherff was on Washington’s draft board

When the Washington Redskins picked offensive tackle Brandon Scherff at number five overall this past weeekend it came as somewhat of a surprise.

DC Pro Sports Report Grades the 2015 Redskins Draft

Now that the NFL Draft is over, it’s time for everyone — “experts” all, of course — to grade that draft and how each team fared in the draft. I’ll start with myself since I’m definitely an “expert.” I had this to say last Friday, about Washington’s first round pick, Brandon Scherff.
