Washington Redskins 2012 Draft Grades

With the 2012 NFL Draft in the books, we can finally get past all of the suspense that surrounded the No. 2 overall pick.  

Would the Redskins take Robert Griffin III or would they take...

Wait, there was no suspense. RGIII all but had a contract before last Thursday night. 

The real suspense rested within Rounds 3 through 7. Would the 'Skins package a player for more picks? Would they trade up or down? Would they draft a second quarterback?! They wouldn't do that,  right?

For Redskins fans, we were treated to something we hadn't seen in almost 20 years. This year's draft marked the first time that Washington selected nine or more players in back-to-back drafts since 1993. 

The only real reason the team was able to do it in the 1992 and 1993 drafts is because those were the last two drafts before adopting today's seven-round format. The 1992 draft was the last one with 12 rounds, while the 1993 draft was cut to eight rounds.

Either way, the 'Skins hadn't made nine-plus picks in back-to-back drafts since then. 

Now, let's take a look at each pick and assign a completely arbitrary grade that will have no bearing on the 2012 season. But heck, it sure is fun to do!
