Five of six are now starters on our roster. I would wager that's a fairly enviable track record by any team's standards. And these guys aren't just scrub starters either; Chris Cooley and Sean Taylor are Pro Bowl level talent, and Jason Campbell has a good shot at being the QB of the Redskins future. Only Manuel White, Jr. isn't with the team anymore, and he fractured his tibula in a preseason game in 2005. I don't blame the Coaches for that (unless he had a history of injury, which I doubt).
So if we're so good with Draft Picks, why the effing deuce do we keep throwing them away! Ryan O'Halloran gets it (emphasis mine):
Since The Danny assumed the franchise in 1999, the Redskins have drafted some solid players in rounds 2-3, which again raises the question of why doesn't the team value those picks more. They currently don't have a pick in either round this year.
