The 2011 Washington Redskins; Is Ricky Stanzi a Hidden Gem In The NFL Draft?

I'm sick of talking about Albert Haynesworth. So aside from saying I'll be happy when this bum is finally off my favorite football team, I'm kindly going to ignore him from here on out.

Instead, I want to have an eye not towards the Dan Snyder/Vinny Cerrato/Jim Zorn past, but towards the Bruce Allen/Mike Shanahan future and next season. With this season more or less in the books barring some sort of insanity happening (stranger things have happened; the Packers could miss the playoffs and the Rams could make it), it's not too soon to start looking towards next year.

There are a boatload of teams that could be in the market for a new quarterback next season. The Cardinals, Vikings, Panthers, Bills, Bengals and 49ers could all be in the market place for a new QB next season. There are a lot of names being mentioned in regards to who could declare and make it on a football team.

Andrew Luck, Ryan Mallet, Jake Locker, Christian Ponder and Cam Newton are all names that you hear come up and come up often when talking about the draft.

One name you don't hear is Ricky Stanzi, who has put together two good seasons for the University of Iowa, and has the stats to go with it. 

The Redskins have a lot of holes to feel this season, and I'm not going to claim Stanzi is the answer the Redskins prayers--as per usual, one player does not make a team.

It also stands to reason, however, that Shanahan could finally be on the track to trying to make this football team younger. 

So let's take a look at who could be the big gets and draft steals for the 2011 Washington Redskins. Because the 2010 Washington Redskins are depressing me, and I need some relief from Haynesworthgate.
