Victor Cruz went undrafted, Donald Driver was selected in the seventh round, Tracy Porter was a second rounder and Hines Ward was a third rounder.
My point is that the draft matters. Successful teams find talent throughout all seven rounds and through undrafted free agents.
However, the Skins selections from the second round and on should be highly emphasized, and that’s putting it lightly.
For things to work out ideally, Robert Griffin III must prove to be as good as advertised, the 2013 second round selection must turn into a reliable starter and other selections must be "hits" as well.
Is it unrealistic to believe that something like that could happen? It happens to contending teams just about every year, so it’s certainly possible. However, it is much easier said than done. We just have to see if the Redskins personnel are willing to buy in.
That previous statement got me thinking. How many Redskins teams have we seen over the years that actually "bought in"? I really can’t think of any.
Below is a list of college prospects whom I think the Redskins' front office should be targeting this coming season.
