Equally important to me is ... Whose job is this guy projected to compete for?

Orakpo? Kerrigan? :roll:

Nice depth though. :wink:
Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans over the last decade. Stay away from football operations !!!

Good article on our 5th Round Picks. Highlights include:

Chris Thompson is a 4.4 guy who was averaging 7.5 YPC before getting injured. Was on pace to be first FSU running back to hit 1,000 yards since Warrick Dunn. He also racked up 80 receiving yards versus Clemson before getting hurt.

Jenkins was the starter over Tank Carradine. He was once considered a 1st round pick after racking up 22 sacks in his Sophmore and Senior Years. He was pushed down due to his injury. But, is believed to be a stud.

The Redskins double-dipped in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, and got themselves a pair of Florida State prospects.

The team needed a speedy change-of-pace complement in the backfield, and they may have just gotten one inFlorida State's Chris Thompson. The pick comes as a bit of a surprise with similar home-run threats on the board including Oregon's Kenjon Barner and Clemson's Andre Ellington.

Thompson was off to a promising start to the 2012 season before a torn ACL ended his year in October. Prior to that, Thompson logged 681 yards while averaging 7.5 yards per carry, a pace which would have made him the Seminoles first 1,000-yard rusher since Warrick Dunn in 1997. He was also heavily involved in the receiving game, as showcased by his eight-catch, 79-yard performance versus Clemson. He could be a nice checkdown option for Robert Griffin III as a speedy guy who can quickly leave yards behind him.

Thompson's injury forced him to sit out the combine and only took part in his pro day at a limited basis. Thompson participated in the vertical jump and posted a height of 35 inches. Prior to his injury, Thompson posted a 40-yard dash time of 4.42 according to nfldraftscout.com. He's a shorter, shiftier change of pace back, but plays bigger and more physical than his sub-190 pound frame suggests he should.

The Redskins second pick of the fifth round, Brandon Jenkins, is also not unfamiliar with season-ending injuries. Jenkins suffered a lisfranc injury his senior season's season opener, which sidelined him for the rest of the year.

Prior to that, Jenkins began generating buzz as a first-round prospect after logging 21.5 sacks between his sophomore and junior seasons. But since then, his injury and poor results at his combine and pro day saw his draft stock plummet while teammates Bjoern Werner and Tank Carradine rose up boards.

But despite falling off the radar, there is plenty of potential here. If Jenkins is healthy, he could push Rob Jackson for snaps as a situational pass rusher in sub packages behind Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan. He's a natural pass-rusher that could eventually thrive in an every down role at full health, but he'll be eased into the defense gradually as far as 2013 is concerned.

And with the guys ahead of Jenkins and Thompson on the depth chart, the Redskins have the flexibility to ease formerly injured, high-ceiling prospects into the system. In the fifth round, there's not a lot more you can ask for
.


And if it matters to anyone. Both Kenjon Barner and Andre Ellington are still undrafted. Maybe the people paid to evaluate know something more than what we do--and that's not just the Skins scouts.

Poyer and Rambo still on the board...kevin reddick could be the pick here also. But chances are it will be someone none of us has heard of at a position none of us thought we needed, lol

Nothing wrong with great competition at both safety positions. I am a happy fan with this Draft.

Beast. And no better last name in the draft. R A M B O

How he lasted to the 191st pick is beyond me.

I think this is the end for Gomes and Bernstine. Doughty is the kind of guy you keep around just in case.

RAMBO 1st BLOOD was a FIRST TEAM ALL AMERICAN. Great pick in the 6th.

David Amerson
Phillip Thomas
Bacarri Rambo

The future of the B & G secondary. These guys have a combined 40 interceptions in just the last 2 seasons.

Rambo & Thomas were first team All American safeties.
