Washington Redskins Select Ryan Kerrigan With 16th Overall Pick

With the 16th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins selected Purdue defensive end/outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan.

Last season, the Washington Redskins had trouble getting pressure on the quarterback by anyone not named Brian Orakpo. They add Kerrigan to solve that issue. Or does he solve the issue? Kerrigan will be making the switch to the outside linebacker role for Jim Haslett's defense.

Me? I am not a fan of Kerrigan in the 3-4. I think he showed nothing at the Senior Bowl aside from looking lost as an OLB. Kerrigan will work hard and Washington picked up extra picks to slide back, but I don't know if Kerrigan can make the transition to the 3-4. If he can then Washington will be looking smart in the future for getting their guy and picking up extra picks.
