Redskins Draft Picks Assigned (Temporary) Uniform Numbers

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 12, 2014 – 5:58 pm


OK, the draft picks are selected.

Now fans want to know: what number will they wear?

Well, the Redskins Blog is coming through in the clutch for you again — in a somewhat limited fashion, however.

Redskins Public Relations was kind enough to let us in on the uniform numbers for the eight 2014 Redskins draft picks, although these are just the numbers they’ve been assigned for this week’s rookie minicamp, and are definitely subject to change.

(You’ll remember, Ryan Kerrigan, for example, was originally assigned No. 53 before he went on to change a little later to No. 91.)

So, without further ado, here’s those 2014 Redskins draft class rookie minicamp uniform numbers:

230 tackles, 39.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and countless sleepless nights for opposing quarterbacks–yeah, it makes sense why Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo is considered the top No. 13 overall pick of the last decade by NFL.com.

Referred to as the top “rock star” at that particular slot since 2003, here are some of his best quarterback rockin’ moments since 2009:

The 2014 Redskins Draft Hats Are In!

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 1, 2014 – 2:51 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Three things are already confirmed for the Washington Redskins and the draft next weekend.

First, whoever general manager Bruce Allen and brass ultimately choose will be coming to a team loaded with young talent and must-see newcomers.

The second assurance is that the 2014 draft class will look pretty awesome in this year’s official draft hat. The third is that you can look just as cool, too!

The hat above is of the snapback variety, but, if you’re not feeling the return of the 90’s look, don’t worry.There’s a more classic version seen below that’s just as stylish:

Redskins Players, Coaches Enjoy ‘Draft Day’ Screening

Posted by Andrew Walker on April 3, 2014 – 10:50 am

Kerrigan Draft Day

They laughed. They cried.

OK, they didn’t really cry, but several Redskins players and team personnel Wednesday evening enjoyed a special screening of the movie “Draft Day,” which is due to be released in theaters nationwide April 11.

I won’t be like that guy on Facebook that spoiled the “How I Met Your Mother” finale, so if you’re looking for a full recap of the flick, you’re in the wrong place.

But here’s the gist of the movie — which stars Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary (and even former Redskins player Terry Crews) — according to IMDb.com:

It’s Never Too Early To Look Ahead

Well for the Internet at least.

Despite the fact that we are still 34 days from the start of training camp for the 2013 season, mock drafts and prospect fits for all 32 NFL franchises are being floated all over cyberspace—for the 2014 NFL Draft.

With the 79th annual NFL Draft (only!) 321 days away Bleacher Report’s Dilan Ames takes a look at three possible players that could come to our Nation’s Capital next year.

So without further ado here is a man that needs no introduction to quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Finding Impact Players In The 2nd Round

Posted by Chris Herting on March 20, 2013 – 3:45 pm


There’s no mystery that the Redskins are the only team without a first round pick in the draft and the likelihood of trading into the first round is slim to none. But hey, the team quote, unquote ‘mortgaged’ the future for last year’s second overall pick.

How’d that end up working out?

Well, the pick paid immediate dividends. It produced the consensus NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, the team’s first NFC East Championship since 1999 and a playoff berth.

Credit the coaching staff and front office for being proactive and making a deal the Rams couldn’t refuse in order to move up and take QB Robert Griffin III. Franchise quarterbacks with Griffin III’s raw talent and ability come around once in a blue moon and the team did what they needed to do to snatch the Heisman trophy winning quarterback.

There’s absolutely no reason to be discouraged that the team’s first selection will come on day two of the draft. And hey, impact players can be found in the second round, especially in a deep draft like this one.

Here’s a list of a few of the players selected in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft who started and produced immediately for their respective teams.

UPDATE: Redskins Mock Draft Tracker

Posted by Chris Herting on March 19, 2013 – 3:45 pm


Last year, the impact player of the draft was quarterback Robert Griffin III, who joined forces with running back Alfred Morris for immediate rookie impact.

This year, the Redskins will again be looking for a player that can come in and contribute right away. The difference this year is the team will have to wait until the second round to find said player. But have no fear: a playmaker can be found at number 51.

With the release of CB DeAngelo Hall, it goes without saying that the roster is pretty slim in the secondary which means the team will certainly need to address the position in the draft, barring any trades or free agent signings.

The good news for Redskins fans is that this year’s draft is incredibly deep in the secondary with talented players across the board. Consensus among NFL experts is that this draft class has upwards of double-digit safeties and cornerbacks with NFL-starter caliber skills whom could have an immediate impact and should be available deep into the second round.

The uncertainty is what order they will come off the board. So let’s go ahead and take a look at our updated Mock Draft Tracker and a few players the experts think the Redskins may have their eye on. Read more »

Redskins Mock Draft Tracker

Posted by Chris Herting on March 6, 2013 – 2:54 pm


The NFL Scouting Combine is complete and national pundits have updated their draft boards to include their most recent evaluations of the prospects. Many of the more well-known draft boards only offer opinions on the first round of the NFL Draft, and considering that the Redskins don’t pick until the second round (51st overall), well, projecting the first thirty two picks simply doesn’t address the interests of Redskins fans.

So, we searched the internet for those next level mock drafts that provide a broader scope and offer complete analysis on how this year’s draft may unfold.

Although opinions on the exact players that the Redskins will draft vary, the common consensus remains that the Redskins will address needs in the secondary when the team selects at number fifty one.

Updated with the most recent projections, here’s the first installment with some of the players who experts around the league predict could be wearing the burgundy and gold come April.

Could Redskins Go O-Line With No. 51?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 5, 2013 – 11:13 am

Ravens Redskins Football

This time last year, the Washington Redskins were in the middle of all draft speculation. The team was slated to select from the number five slot as quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III to cornerbacks Morris Claiborne and Janoris Jenkins had been linked to a spot in the Redskins locker room.

On March 14th, the team made a trade with the St. Louis Rams that shook the foundation of the franchise and sent shock waves across the league, trading away three first-round draft picks along with a second-round selection to move up to the number two slot to eventually select Griffin III.

It’s safe to say one year later that the trade will go down as one of the best moves in team history as Griffin III stabilized a position that has been a revolving door since the team’s Super Bowl XXVI victory in 1992. The risky transaction paid dividends for the team the moment Griffin III put on his number 1o jersey. His presence changed the attitude of the entire organization as they rode the momentum of the move all the way to an NFC East title.

One of the first-round selections that the Redskins gave up was this years pick, leaving the team without a selection until the second-round. While some might think that the draft does not carry as much importance without an opening round selection, this year’s draft may have even more significance as the Redskins look to add pieces to the puzzle in hopes of getting over the hump and into Super Bowl XLVIII.

One position that the team will explore over the next few weeks is the offensive line as they will look to add protection for Griffin III, Alfred Morris, and the league’s reigning rushing attack kings.

Find out about several possible lineman that the Redskins could pursue with the 51st overall selection and what some experts are saying about their draft stocks here: Read more »

First Time At The Combine

Posted by Chris Herting on February 22, 2013 – 11:46 pm

lucas-oil-stadiumThere’s one word that can describe the city of Indianapolis in February: Cold. Maybe a better word to use is frigid.

Nonetheless, our plane touched down earlier today in Indy, fresh off of an ice storm that impacted much of the Midwest Thursday night into Friday morning. But despite the bitter cold temperatures outside, we ventured over to Lucas Oil Stadium to catch the 2013 NFL Combine.


The five block trek through the city streets was worth the energy and excitement palpitating through the hundreds of media that were gathered together upon our arrival.

Today, kickers and punters took the field to show off their talents and abilities to NFL scouts representing all 32 teams. But as exciting as coffin corner punts are, we naturally turned our attention to the running backs and wide receivers who reported to the stadium today.

For the first time, these former college stars experienced a taste of what an NFL interview room feels like. The vibe inside was electric. The media were firing questions. Coaches, scouts and GMs were deep in analysis. And the athletes were prepared.
