As a Redskins fan, you’ve got to be happy about at least three things: 1) Cincy rejected Washington’s generous offer for Chad Johnson. 2) The Skins turned their full slate of picks into an even better slate of picks. 3) Their first selection at No. 34 overall is Michigan State wide receiver Devin Thomas, who Mel Kiper has as the top WR in the draft. Can’t bust any of that.
Here to celebrate, Devin the Dude’s greatest hits set to some Kanye:
And two more second-rounders to go! (Update: Skins take USC tight end Fred Davis at No. 48. Odd considering the needs on defense and O-line.) (Update No. 2: Skins take Oklahoma WR Malcolm Kelly at No. 51. Very odd.)

Everybody’s always wondered what would happen if you put Daniel Snyder and Vinny Cerrato in a room without any adult supervision. Now we know.
Also, from the same column, this quote is a gem:
“I’m very excited,” said Zorn, who volunteered that he’d never been in an NFL draft room before.”
Update: They just drafted Colt fucking Brennan in the 6th round, yet still haven’t picked a defensive lineman. I quit.
