This breakdown was a hit with readers last year so I’ll continue it again this year.
The Washington Redskins are attempting to start fresh under new general manager Scot McCloughan, who has brought a different attitude and scouting perspective after stints with successful franchises like the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.
The team isn’t expected to improve on it’s record from the last two seasons (3-13 in 2013 and 4-12 in 2014) much, if at all, but under McCloughan’s guidance, the quality of the roster appears to be on the upswing.
The Washington Redskins experienced their first draft under new general manager Scot McCloughan and came away with 10 picks. It’s the fourth time of the 10 drafts McCloughan has been directly involved in with the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and Redskins in which the team left with at least 10 picks.

Whoever is selected by the Washington Redskins with their first-round pick on Thursday, April 30 will be sporting a very unique lid.
Unlike the three options from 2014, there will be just one primary hat marketed as the draft day cap by New Era when the picks walk across the stage in Chicago.
The latest Redskins hat features a reflective logo on the front and the Washington, D.C. skyline under the bill. The Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument and the Capitol building are the skyline’s primary features.
The Washington Nationals, pegged by many as 2015 World Series favorites and boasting what is considered to be the best pitching rotation in baseball, grace the cover of Sports Illustrated this week in anticipation of the upcoming MLB season.
