The Redskins didn't have a first-round pick, but the guy they gave it up for was in attendance at DeAngelo Hall's Draft Watch Party. Robert Griffin III surprised the crowd at Bracket Room in Arlington when he walked through the double doors with teammates including David Amerson, Brandon Meriweather, and Richard Crawford in tow. The man of the hour, DeAngelo Hall, gathered the players in the VIP area to watch the first night of the draft.
[Note: I was charging my phone with an outlet in the VIP section when the players arrived, and they graciously tolerated me until I showed myself out. Thank goodness, because I don't know if I could survive the shame of being booted by my favorite players on my favorite team in front of more than 100 people. I got to speak with RGIII, who said he appreciated Hogs Haven's fan perspective and then accidentally spilled a drink on me. It was the best.]
Despite a packed house full of fans, three players managed to work their way through the crowd to our booth to chat with Ken and Mike Harar. Here are our interviews with DeAngelo Hall, RGIII, and David Amerson:
