Redskins Finish Draft With Two Offensive Linemen, Fans Rejoice

Posted by Matt Terl on April 24, 2010 – 4:38 pm

First it was Erik Cook, a G/C guy out of New Mexico who (according to @LarryWeisman) was the MVP and Most Valuable Offensive Player for the 1-11 New Mexico Lobos. At 6’6″, he’d be an enormous center in the NFL, but he’s another versatile guy who has played multiple O-Line positions.

Then it was OT Selvish Capers, and this segment of ESPN’s Sport Science says a lot more about him than I possibly could:

From a certain perspective, any more detail is irrelevant: the Redskins opened the draft by selecting an offensive tackle, and they closed the draft by taking an offensive tackle. According to @RyanOHalloran of Comcast SportsNet, that’s the most offensive linemen the Redskins have ever taken in the seven-round draft era and the most since 1987. For a large, large contingent of Redskins fans, that fact alone makes this a successful draft.
