Breaking Down the Washington Redskins' Rookie Class After the Preseason

Good teams out there can’t just hit on their first-round pick, they need production out of every round over time. They need guys who can play a role not only on game days, but in practice, preparing the veterans for their opponents.

As we are less than a week away from playing in New Orleans, the Redskins had an impressive preseason. They had some ups and downs, but overall seemed to gel as a team.

Unlike last year, this year’s batch of rookies had a full offseason to prepare themselves for the upcoming season and it's clearly paid off.

Considering last year’s success with the draft class, it’s hard to imagine Mike Shanahan and company doing that again. However, it could very well happen.

We were able to get long looks at just about all nine selections this preseason and almost all of them had positive results.

They showed physicality and versatility, and I believe all of them to be collectively precocious with no major injuries, which is a huge plus.  

Below you will find a breakdown of each rookie drafted by Mike Shanahan this year.
