Tallahassee, Florida is the capital of the Sunshine State, the center of agricultural work in the panhandle, and now can also claim to have produced two Redskins draft picks in the same round.

Hailing from Florida State University, Chris Thompson and Brandon Jenkins were selected within eight picks of each other in the fifth round on Saturday.

While it isn’t a rarity for college teammates to find themselves making the journey together from their college dorm rooms to an NFL locker room (think DeJon Gomes, Roy Helu Jr., and Niles Paul from Nebraska for example), the Burgundy and Gold had never taken FSU teammates together in a single draft let alone in the same round.

As the two prepare to make the almost 900 mile trek from Florida’s capital to the Nation’s Capital, one man who calls both areas home extended a welcoming hand to the newest Washington Redskins:

New Redskins cornerback E.J. Biggers has been training hard each and every day at Redskins Park during the team’s offseason conditioning program.

However, this past Sunday he was able to take a break from football. One day following the culmination of the 2013 NFL Draft, Biggers was in attendance at the Class-AA Bowie Baysox game to throw out the first pitch (we’ll take a look at his technique a little bit later in this post).

But for Biggers, the day had a deeper meaning than simply throwing out the first pitch.

No SEC Bias In Redskins’ War Room

In college football, the Southeastern Conference (SEC) reigns supreme, consistently producing the top teams in the NCAA and the deepest talent pool for the NFL.

Statements like this are frequently referred to as the “SEC bias,” which is responsible for skewing the national rankings and the opportunities for teams outside of the SEC to have a shot at the national championship game.

But the facts speak for themselves, as a team from the SEC has won seven-straight national championship games. That’s the reason why advertising dollars and the national television audiences focus on SEC football, which in turn grants more exposure to the programs and players.

This exposure pays off when it is time for the annual NFL Draft, as prospects that played in high-profile bowl games have an easier time catching the eye of talent evaluators. Think that doesn’t make a difference? It turns out that 63-of-254 picks–or a full quarter of the 2013 NFL Draft–were used on players from the SEC.

The Redskins fell in line with the NFL average, spending two-of-seven picks on SEC players: Florida tight end Jordan Reed and Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo. But this was an unusual draft for the Washington front office under head coach Mike Shanahan and general manager Bruce Allen.  Read more »

College Free Agents Important To Redskins

Posted by Chris Herting on April 30, 2013 – 11:01 am

The draft is over. Teams across the league have addressed needs, solidified depth, filled roster spots, and are ready for OTAs and Training Camp, right?

Wrong.

Yes, the draft is over, but the fact remains that, per the collective bargaining agreement, teams are permitted to carry 90 players into training camp. Therefore, in order to reach the 90-man roster limit the Redskins will turn to college free agents (CFA) to fill those spots.
