Who doesn’t enjoy a ball-hawking corner with 4.4 speed that picked off 18 passes during his time in a big time conference like the ACC? Who doesn’t enjoy picking up a player that head coach Mike Shanahan called “the top rated receiving tight end on their board”?
Cornerback David Amerson was selected with the 51st overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Tight end Jordan Reed was taken with the 85th overall pick during the third round and adds a versatile dimension to the offense. Combined are the two newest members of your 2012 NFC East Champs!
Check out the reactions from some of the players including a video below from 2012 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Robert Griffin III.

Just in case the reactions of Redskins players weren’t enough, here are some congratulatory words from NC State alumnus and seven-time NFL Pro Bowl wide receiver Torry Holt!
Want to tell Amerson how stoked you are to see him wearing Burgundy and Gold?
Tweet to Amerson (@DavidAmerson1) and congratulate him on this special night! It’s safe to say that the new Redskins cornerback is excited to be playing for the “best organization in football”.
Unfortunately, we have yet to track down a Twitter account for Reed so tweet us @Redskins with your congratulatory remarks.
