We are almost a year and two weeks removed from the 2012 NFL Draft, but every now and then stories come along that are far more powerful in retrospect than can be fully appreciated at the time.
Take for example, the magical rookie season of Redskins running back Alfred Morris.
In a draft dominated by Robert Griffin III, Morris barely got mentioned in post-draft analysis, and was considered an also-ran in a presumably competitive running back stable.
How could 32 teams pass on one of the NFL’s top rushers and all-around good guys six times before the Redskins landed him at 173?
It’s a question that will hopefully plague NFL general managers for years to come, as the Redskins went from an anemic rushing attack in 2011 to the toast of the league on Morris’s shoulder pads.

Early this afternoon, the Redskins made a relatively under-the-radar move, swapping undrafted center Kyle Wilborn for free agent Kevin Matthews, who likewise went undrafted in 2010.
Delving deeper into his bio with the Tennessee Titans, I discovered Kevin comes from a noteworthy NFL bloodline: that Matthews NFL family.

Redskins safety Reed Doughty is a man of nature. He enjoys fishing, hiking, and just basking in the natural elements.
He also loves to step and giving a helping both on the field as well as off of it. In his seven years in the Nation’s Capital, the Northern Colorado product has been inserted into the starting lineup whenever the Burgundy and Gold have needed a helping hand.
Off the field, he works closely with activism of kidney disease and supports the Spinal Research Foundation by educating people on the importance of spinal health, especially for you fans out there who work desk jobs.
It’s obvious that the perfect 4.0 college student has willfully provided care for taking care of your body and while the majority of the NFL world had their sights set on the NFL Draft a few weekends ago, No. 37 was far away from the Big Apple. Instead, he was tucked deep in the foothills of Virginia tying to of his passions together: fly fishing and helping others.
