NFL Draft Grades 2011: Washington Redskins Receive B+ From One Evaluation

We have already gone on record saying the Washington Redskins deserve a 2011 NFL Draft grade of "A" for the work they have done in the first two days. Whether the players pan out or not, the Redskins have given themselves tons of chances by trading down and accumulating more picks. For that, we think they should get a very high mark.

SBNation.com's Brian Galliford agrees that the Redskins have done well, but he did not give the Redskins an "A." Instead, he gave them a B+ for their work thus far.

The Redskins have done a great job acquiring more picks and getting value with their selections, as they, too, have come up with three players that should play right away.    

The last part is crucial, in our opinion. Not only did the Redskins get a bunch of picks, but they also got three guys in Ryan Kerrigan, Jarvis Jenkins and Leonard Hankerson that can be on the field right away. We think this gets overlooked when talking about how often the team traded down.
