This article pretty much perfectly sums up the Redskins struggles in the Dan Snyder era, with one amazing stat.
Click link for the rest of the article.The Redskins haven’t drafted a true DE before the 7th round during the Dan Snyder era (2000-2010). They've also neglected to draft a DT before the 5th round, your list:
DE Jackson 7th rd 2008
DT Montgomery 5th 2005
DT Golston 6th 2005
DE Greg Scott 7th 2002 (who)
DT Monds 6th 2004
DT Cowsette 7th 2000
Some may consider Brian Orakpo to be a DE, he’s truly not. But even if you consider him a DE, I’ll call that a step in the right direction. Orakpo has earned 2 trips to the Pro Bowl in 2 years.
Want a stat that will blow your mind?? Consider this:
The above list of DE/DT’s drafted in the last 11 years have produced 11.5 sacks. The DB’s the Redskins have drafted during that time have 12.5 sacks! (Tryon, Horton, Landry, Doughty, Taylor & Lott)
