Casserly gets credit for most of the bad picks. Funny how the NFL Network always promotes him as the architect of the all-time great '91 team, even though that was really Beathard.

Good point. I had somehow forgotten what a mess the Desmond Howard pick was.

+1

He even shows a Sports Illustrated cover of the 91 win when they broadcast from his office. :roll:

HOWEVER, I do not think that he was the WORST. That "honor" goes to ...

...

drum roll, please,

no drum roll? then

...

Vinny Cerrato and Daniel Snyder "working" together.

Although the Haeth Shuler pick has been the most damaging single draft choice in our history, the thousand wounds created in subsequent drafts sent us to become the laughingstock of the NFL.

Glad to leave behind those bad memories. -drinking
Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans over the last decade. Stay away from football operations !!!

i never thought much of DT Bobby Wilson.

I actually think Desmond provided more value than Wilson did.

I don't remember for how long but Wilson didn't play long. 3 years maybe; and he was a steady Darryl Grant type if I remember correctly. Not great but steady. I should probably look this stuff up, so i'll say IMO

RGIII and Alfred Morris will make the Best List.

Malcolm Kelly & Devin Thomas should be on the WORST list. SMH

Andre Johnson sticks out for me of those not mentioned. Did he ever play in the NFL?

In my book Johnson was hands down the worst draft pick in Skins' history and it isn't even close.

They traded up to take a player that failed so miserably that he never suited up for a single game. Not didn't play! He didn't even dress!!!

Shuler actually won a couple of games, and Howard at least scored aTD out two.

But a first round pick that never plays for your team and then is cut the next year.

TOTAL FAILURE!!

By the way, they passed up Mike Alstot for him.

I think you made your point .... :lol:
The Redskins need to have a plan for how to put a product on the field that will be consistently competitive and they need to stick with that plan - it's taken years to become as bad as we are and it will be years getting out of it

After the 1981 draft the Skin's signed a undrafted free agent named Joe Jacoby to go along with the picks.

Never realized he was an UDFA. Man...hopefully there's some players like that at the end of this draft. Also hoping Ray Ray is an UDFA...no risk signing him, all reward :)
