Who had the best draft in the NFC East?
By Jake Trotter
According to James Walker of ESPN.com, it was the Washington Redskins.
Here’s an excerpt from Walker’s column:
After failing to land Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson in a trade last week, the Washington Redskins did a great job of upgrading the position by taking Michigan State’s Devin Thomas and Oklahoma’s Malcolm Kelly in the second round. Thomas and Kelly were considered among the top three receiving prospects, and the Redskins landed both by trading out of the first round to gain a pair of second-round picks. Redskins rookie head coach Jim Zorn will implement a West Coast offense and needs big receiving targets who can make plays after the catch. Thomas (6-foot-2, 216 pounds) and Kelly (6-3¾, 224) fit the bill. Drafting these two players puts the Johnson pursuit to rest, but it’s a pretty good consolation.
