The Washington Redskins have one of the most debated draft histories in all of football. Since Daniel Snyder purchased the Redskins in May of 1999, the team has gone through many different changes in image and philosophy.
Many people remember the early years of Dan Snyder's reign where draft picks and money were seemingly cast aside in favor of expensive veterans. There was no general manager in place, and the locker room was filled with rumors of Snyder usurping the head coach's authority. Needless to say, it was not the finest hour for the burgundy and gold.
Over the past three years a dramatic shift has taken place as Bruce Allen was hired as the general manager and Mike Shanahan was brought in as the new head coach. With the drafting of Robert Griffin III, a rejuvenated Redskins organization is ready to take the field this year.
In honor of this momentous occasion, let's look back at the 10 best draft picks during the Dan Snyder Era (2000 - present). As part of this project, I will not be including any of the 2012 draft class since they have not played yet (although I was very tempted to include RG3).
