The Redskins selected cornerback David Amerson (N.C. State) in the second round (51st overall) of this year’s draft and here’s your chance to ask him your burning questions, or simply just ‘hang out’ with the rookie.
The selection marks the earliest the Redskins have taken a defensive back since selecting safety LaRon Landry out of LSU with the sixth overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft.
Furthermore, Amerson is the sixth defensive back selected by a Shanahan-coached team in the first 51 picks of a draft, joining Middlebrooks, Kenoy Kennedy (No. 45, DEN 2000), Deltha O’Neal (No. 15, DEN 2000), Tory James (No. 44, DEN 1996) and Terry McDaniel (No. 9, LA Raiders 1988).
And did you know that Amerson shares something in common with Redskins Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett? Haslett was also selected with the No. 51 overall selection back in the 1979 NFL Draft.
Anyway, we have all kind of fun facts and stats for you. Fact of the matter is that you all thought the Redskins needed a cornerback and the team listened, selecting the ball-hawking Amerson, who led the nation in 2011 with 13 interceptions, with their first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
And we’re bringing him to YOU, the fans. Amerson will be the team’s next participant in a Google+ Hangout, next Thursday, May 30th at 1 p.m. Here’s how you can be picked to participate:

If you aren’t picked to participate but still want to watch Friday’s Google+ Hangout LIVE, you can do so by visiting the Washington Redskins’ YouTube Channel at 1 p.m. Thursday.
