The Washington Redskins prepare to pick 2nd in the 2nd round of the 2014 NFL Draft by Ron Robey


It's no secret that the Washington Redskins traded the St. Louis Rams 3 first round and 1 2nd round draft pick to secure Robert Griffen III with the second pick of the 2012 NFL Draft.  The Redskins would have been selecting 2nd overall in the 2014 draft due to their pitiful performance last year but the Rams benefited instead due to the desperate deal.  Washington has made some pretty bold moves considering the recent acquisition of DeSean Jackson and can by no stretch call this season a rebuilding year.  If the Skins do not make it to the Championship Game in the 2014 Season, these moves are a bust and they will leave a similar expression on their fans as Johnny Manziel's face as the Dallas Cowboys passed on him.

This 2014 season has the potential to be a legitimate Super Bowl run for the Redskins as they retained Brian Orakpo, Santa Moss, Ryan Kerrigan, DeAngelo Hall and other high paid returning athletes.  With fingers crossed, the Skins must restructure a few deals to make cap roof for draft picks and are predicted to concentrate on getting their defense solid with their first pick.  Remember that Alfred Morris was drafted in the 6th round of the 2012 draft.  He earned his way into the discussion of "Rookie of the Year" and the 2014 "Cover of Madden 15". 

With all of the weapons locked and loaded, the Washington Redskins can only count on rookie head coach Jay Gruden for direction.  It's equally important for the Veteran Players to provide leadership which with London Fletcher retired the Skins will have to manufacture deep in their roster.  Will RG3 be able to duplicate and/or exceed his "Rookie Year" performance after announcing his decision to play without his knee brace in 2014?  Will the Washington Redskins locker room be strong with a questionable DeSean Jackson injected into it?  I'm sure anything has to be better than losing most of your matchups under Mike Shanahan egotistical coaching style.  We would love to hear your thoughts!  #HTTR +Ron Robey
