UPDATE: Redskins Mock Draft Tracker

Posted by Chris Herting on March 27, 2013 – 8:54 am

The team announced last week that they had signed CB EJ Biggers from Tampa Bay reuniting him with Redskins secondary coach Raheem Morris. Morris has high remarks for the fourth year pro out of Western Michigan telling ESPN 980, “He has elite qualities. He’s a fast guy, who could really stick you in coverage.”

Regardless, what the move does mean is that the Redskins addressed some of the need in the secondary with the signing of Biggers, a capable corner who started 12 games last year for the Buccaneers. What still remains is that the team will most likely continue to add depth even if they believe Biggers has the qualities of a prototypical “shutdown” corner in this league.

Fact of the matter is that the NFL nowadays is a passing league and most teams prefer to have three or more cornerbacks on the roster who are capable of covering elite NFL wideouts.

So here’s an updated look at various Mock Draft boards and a few players the experts think the Redskins may have their eye on. Consensus is still with the Redskins selecting secondary help but the players are still in flux with Blidi Wreh-Wilson (CB, Connecticut) as the only player repeated in the mocks below. Keep in mind that this is not an exact science but, according to scouts, there are some very talented players left on the board at number 51.

Griffin III Gives Update On Knee

Posted by Chris Herting on March 26, 2013 – 8:58 pm

AP298394347222

Text message from Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, via Trey Wingo at ESPN, providing an update on his knee.

“My knee is getting better every day. The doctors say I’m ahead of schedule. My goal is to return healthy in week one but if I’m not ready then I will wait until I am, however long that is. My first NFL season and my injury that ended it showed me a lot about the league, my team and myself. I know where my responsibility is within the dilemma that led to me having surgery to repair my knee and all parties involved know their responsibilities as well. I’m looking forward to playing the game we all love so much again and not behind at the negative. Thanks for the overwhelming level of support that I’ve received, sic ‘em bears and hail to the redskins!!”

Redskins coaching legend George Allen was honored recently for a lifetime achievement award at his high school in St. Clair Shores, Michigan.

Allen, head coach in Washington for seven years, is just one of several Burgundy and Gold heroes that have been honored over the past few months. Hall of Fame receiver Bobby Mitchell went back to Arkansas for a ceremony celebrating his legacy and current captain Robert Griffin III has been recognized across the Lone Star State in the past few weeks.

While Redskins Nation knows just how great of a man Allen was when he led the troops to 67 wins in his stint in the Nation’s Capital, many know little about the upbringing of the 2002 Hall of Fame inductee.

Spring football is one of the most intriguing times of the year in college football. It’s the first look at potential starters, position changes, and early enrollees. It’s also a homecoming in a sense for fans to come support their university as every team is at 0-0 with an even shot to hoist the BCS Title.

On April 20, Redskins Quarterback Kirk Cousins will be at Michigan State’s spring game, but he won’t be making calls from under center or slinging the pigskins to Spartans receivers.

Instead, find out how Cousins will use his bellowing, leadership voice for the East Lansing faithful here:

Is Success of ’83 QBs Indication of RGIII’s Future?

Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the past year, you witnessed one of the greatest seasons ever by rookie quarterbacks in 2012.

Need evidence? On January 6th, three rookie quarterbacks were starting in the playoffs within 30 miles of each other and two of the most dynamic signal callers to come through the professional ranks in decades were colliding in a matchup at FedExField. One of the two, AP Rookie of the Year and record holder Robert Griffin III, was drafted with the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Redskins.

Griffin III, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck headlined one of the highly regarded draft classes in league history. The trio has been mentioned in the same breath as the highly vaunted 1983 class headlined by three Hall of Fame quarterbacks: John Elway, Jim Kelly and Dan Marino.

What the three men did during the 2012 season revolutionized the game as Griffin III and Wilson were at the center of the pistol formation title wave over helpless defenders and Luck adjusted with relative ease in replacing Colts legend Peyton Manning.

As the three look to displace any rumored possibilities of a sophomore slump, they will continue to be compared to the 1983 class this year.

Find out how the 1983 gunslingers did during their second campaigns in the NFL and how it could shed light on the possibility of greater performances for the 2012 class in their second season.

Griffin III Impressed By Wall’s Career Night

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 26, 2013 – 11:15 am

There is no denying that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is one of the most naturally gifted athletes on the planet. Baylor students and Redskins faithful can attest to his heroics with the pig skin, as he simply does the unimaginable sometimes. Just ask Vikings fans for proof after his 76-yard touchdown scamper against Minnesota during the 2012 season.

In high school, Griffin III was one of the best hurdlers in the Lone Star State.

But like the rest of us, his eyes have been glued to the hardwood in recent weeks. In the days leading up to the NCAA Selection Show, his alma mater was on the bubble and with the Bears needing a lift against perennial Big 12 power Kansas, Griffin III gave his school a much needed pregame speech to get them prepared for crunch time.

To the delight of all in attendance, Baylor was able to knock off Kansas – the last team to do so prior to the Jayhawks Sweet 16 run.

With the NCAA Tournament taking a few nights off after an amazing first weekend, it was the NBA’s turn to take center stage Monday night.

Griffin III was still amped up to watch some hoops and tuned in to see what was going down on the court. Last night, it was the performance of one local star that left the quarterback in amazement.

Bracket Update: Ranking The Players

Posted by Chris Herting on March 25, 2013 – 3:36 pm

bracket_top8-copy

Since it’s not football season and there’s no Redskins football on TV, let’s assume that everyone’s attention has turned, at least for the next three weeks, to the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Call it crazy but March Madness is a force to be reckoned with at this time of year because of all the pageantry surrounding nail-biting finishes, Cinderella stories and upsets galore.

The bottom line is that the tournament is arguably one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year, other than the Super Bowl, and captivates audiences across the Nation.

Why try to fight it? Plus, Redskins players seem to be having some fun with the tournament so why can’t we?

Former Redskins Quarterback, Doug Williams says there’s nothing like playing for the Burgundy and Gold.

“I talked to Coach Gibbs during the Super Bowl. The only thing I hate about being a Redskin, was the fact that I wasn’t a Redskin all my life,” said Williams.

The Super Bowl XXII MVP,  hosted the Fifth Annual Washington Football Legends Event on Saturday, March 23rd in Washington DC. The event each year provides scholarships and minority higher education assistance. Williams said, “It’s special for me to come back to DC and present awards. It makes me feel like I still have a part in DC.” Read more »

Redskins, Ravens Hoop For Charity

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 25, 2013 – 1:11 pm

On Saturday, the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens tangled for the second time in months. For those of you that don’t recall how the events unraveled between the two teams in their first encounter, just check out this video as a reminder.

On this day, the two franchise that play a mere 30 miles away from each other on Sundays during the season, were showcasing their talents in a different sports arena where the final score meant literally nothing.

Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was holding his third annual Torrey Smith Foundation Charity Basketball Game and invited some of the NFC East champs to do battle at the rim. He and the rest of hims teammates were hoping to extract revenge for their lost at FedExField and more importantly, to raise money for his foundation.

Find out how the game when here:
