Actual Draft Pick: Josh LeRibeus
Re-Drafted Pick: Jayron Hosley (drafted 94th overall by NYG)
Coming into the draft, the Redskins were in desperate need of upgrading the offensive line. Initially, the second round pick would've been perfect to use on a lineman like Cordy Glenn, Jeff Allen, Peter Konz, or maybe even Kelechi Osemele.
The Redskins' second round pick, however, was used to land RG3.
By the third round, the talent seemed to have dropped off. And while many projected SMU's Josh LeRibeus as a fourth or fifth round prospect, Mike Shanahan and the Redskins pulled the trigger at No. 71.
Through just nine games, the verdict on LeRibeus is still out. Hell, he's only been active for one. But when you look at how bad the Redskins secondary has been so far this season, taking a play-making corner like Jayron Hosley out of Virginia Tech wouldn't be all that bad.
Hosley was a local product of Virginia Tech and I'm sure the Redskins front office had more than enough scouting notes on him (my scouting report here).
Through nine games this year with the Giants, Hosley has three starts in seven games with 22 tackles, one forced fumble and one interception.
Again, LeRibeus may turn out to be the bruiser that Shanahan envisioned within the next year or two. But at this point, I'd much rather have Hosley–a guy that would start in this Washington secondary.
