2012 NFL Draft: How Donald Stephenson Would Fit With Redskins

The Redskins are pretty set on who they are going to take with their first round pick at No. 2 overall, so they've started to turn their attention to their later round picks. They recently had Oklahoma tackle Donald Stephenson in for a visit, and Mike Jones of the Washington Post thinks that Stephenson will be a good fit with Washington. Stephenson seems to think the same thing himself.

"At Oklahoma, you have to be able to run to fit into the offense, and it’s the same with the Redskins, them running a similar style," Stephenson said. "I felt pretty good at my visit. I feel like I could fit into their organization. I like the coaching staff, and [Mike] Shanahan seems like a real cool dude."

That might be the first time that Mike Shanahan has been described as a "real cool dude." But Stephenson seems excited about potentially playing in Washington, and that's important. The Redskins need a lot of help along the offensive line so Stephenson might be a good pick in the third round.
