2011 NFL Mock Draft: Redskins Have A Lot Of Needs

With such little football related news to discuss that doesn't involve courtrooms, mediators, or pottery, Gregg Rosenthal of ProFootballTalk.com is running a series of columns breaking down the needs of each team in the NFL. He covered the Washington Redskins today, and as you may have guessed, they happen to have plenty of needs.

The Redskins have only two picks in the first four rounds.  This is nothing new: They have only averaged 2.25 picks in the first four rounds since 2003. It’s no wonder they are averaging one starter per draft over the last four years.

So then does Rosenthal mean to imply that the Redskins are set at kicker? Graham Gano FTW!
