Washington Redskins Top Ten Greatest Draft Successes--Chris Samuels

I recall having a conversation with Rick "Doc" Walker 2 or 3 years ago. We were talking about the value in blowing up a roster and rebuilding from scratch. I will always remember that one of things he said was that there was only one guy on the entire team he would consider keeping and rebuilding a roster around: Chris Samuels. And that was well into the career of Samuels.

Vinny Cerrato drafted Samuels, so I have to give him credit. He drafted an All-Pro offensive lineman. He immediately started for the team at left tackle and made it to six Pro Bowls. Samuels was not the most outspoken player on the squad, but he was clearly a leader on the team. It was clear to fans that he hated losing, and of all the players who have come through the doors at Redskins Park over the last decade, he is the least blamed for any aspect of the losing culture witnessed in that time.
