NFL Draft 2011: Washington Redskins Select Ryan Kerrigan With 16th Pick

With the 16th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins have selected Ryan Kerrigan, defensive end from Purdue University.

Fans breathed a sigh of relief when the Redskins were able to trade their 10th pick of the draft down six spots, picking up another second round pick. It gave the team a chance to get better value, despite a run on QBs early in the first round.

With a mid first rounder, the Redskins went with the safe pick and went defense, when QB Andy Dalton was still on the board. 

What's next for the Skins? They still have two second round picks, and if they choose to trade back into the first round, they still have ammunition to do so.

They will hope to get a quarterback at some point in the draft, the question is, will they get one in the second round now that most of the QBs have been taken?
