Redskins have five of nine draft picks signed


The Washington Redskins are moving quickly to get their draft picks signed and now have most of them under contract.

Today the Redskins signed Tom Compton, a sixth-round offensive tackle from South Dakota, and Alfred Morris, a sixth-round running back from Florida Atlantic. Washington had already signed seventh-round draft picks Richard Crawford and Jordan Bernstine and fifth-round pick Adam Gettis.

Four of the Redskins’ nine draft picks remain unsigned: First-round pick Robert Griffin III, second-round pick Josh LeRibeus and fourth-round picks Kirk Cousins and Keenan Robinson.

The Redskins also announced today that they have waived undrafted free agents Vaughn Meatoga and Kelvin Bolden and signed undrafted free agents Samuel Kirkland, Nick Martinez, Beau Reliford, Brian Hernandez and Delvin Johnson.

    Amazing take 15 mil from them and they still don’t miss a beat. Give my team their numbers guy and keep our talent evaluators.

    Okay, it’s a really ridiculously small thing to get your draft picks signed quickly. But they say that the attitude and culture of a football team radiate from the front office downward.

    So even though this is such a little thing, I do like both the sense of commitment and urgency to get things done and get everything in place. It’s a good sign.

    Even the young players are seeing the “change” and want to be a part of it. Good job boys!

    In almost every area this team is getting younger and better. As the other NFC east teams age they’ll be hitting their prime…the future is looking brighter than it has in years!

    LeRibeus was a 3rd rounder.

    Sign your RGLeaf. I only wish it was 2 years ago so he’d get $55 mil guaranteed. Wake up call in 4 months skin fans. (and no Im not a cowboys, giants or eagles fan, the redskins made the worst trade in history, 2 years from now you’ll possibly be regretting it). FAIL
