They certainly can't bank on Hankerson starting because he's a WR. They'll be lucky if he ever starts as far as their draft history with WR's goes anyway. Sidney Rice.

The thing I like about this draft is that we actually had a pick in rounds 1-4 and none of the picks were stupid. Jenkins was a reach, but it was a good first four rounds. After that it all went to hell, but they did get a lot of players in 5 through 7. And you can't expect a lot of starters in that range anyway.

Shanahan had said that Danny Smith was going to have a good deal of input in the bottom of the draft... looking at many of the picks, I'd say that's true.

This is the most optimistic I've felt about a Redskins draft for years. But it really doesn't matter how we feel about it right now - can somebody wake me up in three years?!

You do realize there will at some point be a free agency before there is a season, no?


Is Carriker a FA as well?


No, he's signed for $1.42 million, but he'll be a free agent next year
