The equation of value is well-known by NFL teams such as the Washington Redskins. And yet, they still work to perfect that equation.

Quarterback. Running back. Wide receiver. Tight end. Offensive line. Defensive line. Linebacker. Cornerback. Safety. It doesn’t matter *what* your team needs. There’s always one thing they need the most.


Every NFL team knows what it is, and yet, every year, every NFL team finds new ways to attain, or pass over, value. In the first round, it can be easy to hone in on the most talented players, but in the later rounds, it can be challenging to find the best players available.

In recent years, the Washington Redskins have had some success in this area. In 2017, they drafted Chase Roullier in the sixth round of the NFL Draft. Now, he’s their starting center, and a fine starter at that.

In 2018, they drafted Alabama linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton in the sixth round. And now, just one year into his career, he appears to have the inside track toward a starting job.

The Redskins seemed to have lost their way in the NFL Draft for a time in the 21st century. But now, they’re finding their rhythm again. It’s no surprise, of course; they have a blueprint to follow. These are the Redskins’ 15 best draft-day steals of all time.
