ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have a promising pass-rusher and a pair of offensive linemen from the first three rounds of the NFL draft.
Now it’s time to find a hidden gem from the later rounds on Saturday.
The Redskins selected Troy Murphy of Stanford in the second round Friday, then snagged tackle Morgan Moses of Virginia and guard Spencer Long of Nebraska in the third.
Murphy led the nation in sacks last year with 15, and new coach Jay Gruden felt that was too good to pass up. The Redskins took Murphy and gambled that Moses would drop, and it worked.
The Redskins have four picks remaining in the draft, one each from the fourth round through the seventh.
