NFL Draft 2011: Current Redskins Linebackers Aren't Worried About The Team Drafting One

The Redskins have a lot of holes that they could potentially fill in the 2011 NFL Draft, and not that many picks with which to do it. We don't know which positions they will target yet, but according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, the current Redskins linebackers doesn't think it needs to be linebacker.

“All they need to do is keep 95 in the game,” he said referring to his jersey number. “We’re stacked at OLB. That’ll be a waste of a pick.”

Jones asked the linebackers, including Kris Wilson and Lorenzo Alexander, if they were worried about the Redskins potentially bringing in some competition for them, but they all seemed comfortable with their standing on the team. One such player that has been a popular projection for the Redskins is North Carolina's Robert Quinn. He would be a good fit for the Redskins, and a pretty significant amount of competition if he is brought on.

The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft starts at 8 p.m. (ET) on Thursday, April 28, and SB Nation has everything you need to prepare: NFL mock drafts, draft projections, scouting reports, the full NFL draft schedule and more.
