The Redskins brain-trust drafted a group of a dozen players that they hoped would lay the foundation for future success.
Some players like Ryan Kerrigan, Jarvis Jenkins and Leonard Hankerson were expected to be impact players in their rookie seasons, but when do things go according to plan in a contact sport?
Jenkins was lost to a season-ending injury in the preseason, delaying his rise to stardom. Hankerson was lost after his breakout game against Miami in Week 10. They were joined by a whole host of players in injured reserve, which opened up playing time and opportunity for late-round draft picks to perform.
Each of the remaining 11 players were active for at least one game during the season, making it one of the most impressive showings for a rookie draft class in franchise history.
