Redskins Finding First Round Gold, But Still Need Late Round Help





Everybody Robert Griffin III Youth Jersey out there was real cool. Had a good time with [Minnesotas] Jared Allen, seeing how silly he really is, Alexander added. Chad Greenway from Green Bay was cool. Getting to know Earl Thomas from Seattle was good. That secondary in Seattle gets a bad rap, but he was actually a real cool guy. Kerrigan agreed with Alexanders assessment. It was an awesome week because you get to know guys, the second-year pro said. You see them on TV all the time, but you dont really know them. Just getting to hang out by the pool, and talk to them, and see everybodys just real humble, and just like you, it was pretty cool. Kerrigan said he was most impressed with how normal Peyton Manning was.





Redskins Ryan Kerrigan seeks to produce sacks on a consistent basis





9. Outside linebacker Brian Orakpo, Washingtons first-rounder in 2009, was picked for the Pro Bowl in 2009 and 2010. The Redskins didnt have first-round selections in 2008 or 2006, but cornerback Carlos Rogers, the first of their first-rounders in 2005, went to the Pro Bowl last year with the 49ers. That makes quarterback Jason Campbell, chosen after Rogers in the first round in 2005, the last Washington first-rounder not to have made a Pro Bowl. Late free safety Sean Taylor (2004) was chosen in 2006 and 2007. The Redskins didnt have a first-rounder in 2003 so quarterback Patrick Ramsey (2002) is the last player they chose with their only first-round pick who didnt eventually wind up in Hawaii.









Unlike last season, when teams had little to go on when it came to his tendencies, this season they have plenty of material to study. I think the thing with me is I have to get off of blocks quicker, Kerrigan said. Im getting decent push lot of times on the offensive tackle, but Im allowing him to hold onto me and kind of drag me by the quarterback. So, the big thing for me is make sure I finish the play and not just create push. Ive got to get off the block and get to the quarterback. Watching from the sideline, Orakpo understands Kerrigans plight but believes a breakthrough is possible. Hes just got to keep playing his game. Stuff will eventually come through for him, Orakpo said.
