The Washington Redskins 2011 draft was looking somewhat barren, but the front office turned six draft selections into twelve picks and added a lot of players to the roster.
After producing a 6-10 record in 2010, the Redskins needed a serious infusion of talent and plenty of depth as well. The front office added some decent prospects in free agency including two defensive linemen (Barry Cofield, Stephen Bowen), a guard (Chris Chester), and a punter (Sav Rocca).
Armed with just six draft choices, the Redskins made some trades and were able to make a whopping twelve draft picks when the dust settled.
Today, we continue to re-grade the 2010 through 2019 draft classes with a look at the 2011 class. We won’t list every draft trade as there were many in 2011 (here is a list if you are interested), but we will grade the players who were added to the Burgundy and Gold that season.
Let’s see how the Redskins fared in the 2011 draft.
