There’s no mystery that the Redskins are the only team without a first round pick in the draft and the likelihood of trading into the first round is slim to none. But hey, the team quote, unquote ‘mortgaged’ the future for last year’s second overall pick.
How’d that end up working out?
Credit the coaching staff and front office for being proactive and making a deal the Rams couldn’t refuse in order to move up and take QB Robert Griffin III. Franchise quarterbacks with Griffin III’s raw talent and ability come around once in a blue moon and the team did what they needed to do to snatch the Heisman trophy winning quarterback.
There’s absolutely no reason to be discouraged that the team’s first selection will come on day two of the draft. And hey, impact players can be found in the second round, especially in a deep draft like this one.
Here’s a list of a few of the players selected in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft who started and produced immediately for their respective teams.

March without a bracket is like peanut butter with jelly. It’s just plain wrong. So to continue to hype the season of brackets, NFL.com is releasing its own version featuring the top 64 plays in league history.
Each game literally has hundreds of plays and you can expect to see a handful of spectacular moments sprinkled throughout every contest.
Maybe its a 100 yard kick return or a quarterback sprinting past hopeless defenders to the end zone (think Robert Griffin III‘s 76 yard scamper as proof of a jaw-dropping moment).
To be one of the 64 greatest plays all-time in the NFL is a special honor in itself and with 80 years of memorable plays to choose from, it’s a given that at least one play will be included in the bracket.

The Washington Redskins have had well-documented struggles against the salary cap this offseason, but continue to address the depth and competition along the offensive line.
In addition to retaining starting right tackle Tyler Polumbus, the Redskins injected some new blood with longtime Tampa Bay Buccaneers tackle Jeremy Trueblood.
Besides having one of the most awesome football names ever, Trueblood comes with a résumé of success dating back to his days at Boston College, continuing through his first seven years at the professional level in the Sunshine State.
It appears that a competition is a’brewing at right tackle heading into training camp, as the Redskins seek their first back-to-back division titles since the 1983-84 seasons:
