With the fourth pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins selected Oklahoma OT Trent Williams.

After acquiring quarterback Donovan McNabb from the Philadelphia Eagles, the Redskins knew their top priority in this year's draft was to focus on protecting him. Washington struggled with their offensive line in 2009 and will need improvement if they want to compete in the NFC East next season.

The Redskins' running game averaged just 94.4 yards per game last season and allowed 46 sacks—ranking them 29th among NFL teams.

For months, the main question in D.C. was whether the team would select Sam Bradford or Jimmy Clausen. By selecting Williams, Washington hopes the former Oklahoma standout can have an immediate impact on the Redskins' offensive line.
