Grading a Washington Redskins draft immediately after players have been chosen is difficult, but looking back to grade the team years later is certainly much easier.
Many analysts are continuing to examine each team’s 2020 NFL draft choices and while that is probably an exercise in futility, we also took a look at the Redskins draft class. In fact, we did more than one assessment.
While some football pundits continue to grade the class of 2020, today we will take a look at the Redskins draft class for 2010 and offer new grades. Years from now there can be no doubt that the grades we see for this year’s crop will change and some evaluations will actually remain the same. But make no mistake, the grades for this year’s class will change substantially and many of us will be eating a healthy slice of humble pie in a few years.
For the next few weeks, we will take a look at the 2010 through 2019 Redskins draft classes and offer some pointed analysis for each draft.
The 2010 draft for the Redskins was a rather pitiful endeavor outside of their first-round and fourth-round picks. To be brutally honest, it was forgettable and in retrospect, it looks like the selections were made by another general manager in the NFC East! Ok, that is an exaggeration, but this look back at 2010 is painful. Let’s get right to it.
