Washington Redskins 2011 Draft Picks: A List Of Every Player They Selected

The Washington Redskins' 2011 NFL Draft is over, and in the end, the team ended up with 12 draft picks. They had a pick in every round for the first time since 1995, and they selected more picks than in any year since 1982, when there were still 12 rounds in the draft. Despite all that, the Redskins didn't take a quarterback, which is surprising because many felt that was what they would do.

Instead, the Redskins primarily focused on the defensive front seven and the other skill positions on offense. The first two picks were defensive players, and they also took two running backs and two wide receivers. Here are all 12 of the Redskins' 2011 NFL Draft picks.

First Round, No. 16 (from Jacksonville): Ryan Kerrigan, DE/LB, Purdue

Second Round, No. 41: Jarvis Jenkins, DE/DT, Clemson

Third Round, No. 79 (from Miami): Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami

Fourth Round, No. 105 (from Houston): Roy Helu, RB, Nebraska

Fifth Round, No. 146 (from Miami): DeJon Gomes, DB, Nebraska

Fifth Round, No. 155 (from New Orleans): Niles Paul, WR, Nebraska

Sixth Round, No. 177: Evan Royster, RB, Penn State

Sixth Round, No. 178 (from Houston): Aldrick Robinson, WR, SMU

Seventh Round, No. 213: Brandyn Thompson, DB, Boise State

Seventh Round, No. 217 (from Miami): Maurice Hurt, OL, Florida

Seventh Round, No. 224 (from Indianapolis): Markus White, LB, Florida State
