The Washington Redskins have selected Purdue defensive end/linebacker Ryan Kerrigan with the 16th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. The Redskins had their eyes on many players, but ultimately, they chose Kerrigan hoping that he could team with Brian Orakpo to help their lagging pass rush.
The reaction to the pick among the pundits and fans was mixed, though there was a lot of relief that the team didn't reach to take a quarterback. But how did the Redskins players view the pick? Mostly positive, as you'd guess, but there were some humorous responses. Here they are, below the jump.
I love the pick. Kerrigan is a really good player with a very high motor.
