New Era’s 2015 Redskins Draft Hat Revealed

By Jake Russell

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.

By Jake Russell

The Washington Redskins traded the 34th overall pick to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for the 47th overall (2nd round) and 78th overall (3rd round) selections in the draft.

Washington has many needs to address including offensive tackle, offensive guard, safety, inside linebacker, cornerback, pass-catching running back and tight end.

The Redskins now hold seven picks in the draft after this trade with two coming in the third round.
