The Redskins entered the draft last April with glaring needs at both cornerback and safety, while their situation at right tackle was also deemed spotty.
With their first-round pick already invested in some guy by the name of Robert Griffin III, the Redskins began work with the 51st-overall pick in the second round and snagged a sizable corner with good ball skills in David Amerson.
The following round, head coach Mike Shanahan raised a few eyebrows when he selected tight end Jordan Reed. Although the pick itself wasn't all that wild for the roster, many weren't expecting it.
In the fourth, the Redskins grabbed a well-touted safety in Phillip Thomas, again helping to address the need in the defensive backfield.
The fifth round brought a pair of Florida State Seminoles teammates in running back Chris Thompson at No. 154, and then pass rusher Brandon Jenkins just eight picks later.
The Redskins then landed their steal of the draft in the sixth round when Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo was left floating around, and Shanahan thought the ball-hawking centerfielder had too much talent to pass up.
Finally, in the seventh, Shanahan pulled his expected late-round flier by way of Jawan Jamison—a versatile running back with more bulk than flash.
Although the Redskins may not have touched the offensive line, they did walk away from the draft with a decent haul of potential playmakers, while also filling needs and adding depth.
My hands may be worn to rubble from pounding the table each round Tennessee Tech receiver Da'Rick Rogers remained on the board, but there's certainly no negativity in regards to the Redskins' month of April.
