Redskins round 2-4; it’s raining picks, hallelujah


With the second pick in the draft the Redskins take Clemson DL Jarvis Jackson, further bolstering a defense badly in need of fresh growth.

Miami WR Leonard Hankerson was taken in round three, finally adding the WR I knew they needed and would eventually take. Hankerson has the potential to be a number one wide out.

RB Roy Helu of Nebraska was the Skins’ fourth round pick adding a potential bruiser to the running game.

The most important development is that through cunning trade-downs, Mike Shanahan has secured more picks than the Skins have had in numerous years. This years draft is setting up to be the best for Washington in many many years.

Apologies for the brevity, but blogging by phone in remote Luray, VA, is not the easiest.
