After Mark Sanchez was picked up by the Jets, the Skins chose Brian Orakpo from Texas as their first pick. Orakpo is a 6' 3″ 263 lb DE and racked up 11.5 sacks last year. In the third round, the Skins got Kevin Barnes from Maryland. Barnes is a 6'0″ 187 lb CB. Although he was injured for half of the season last year, the NFL combine showed a healthy and ready CB.
About the Author
Written by Mercedes Green
I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
