1982 No first-round draft pick
1983 28 Darrell Green CB Texas A&I
1984 No first-round draft pick
1985 No first-round draft pick
1986 No first-round draft pick
1987 No first-round draft pick
1988 No first-round draft pick
1989 No first-round draft pick
1990 No first-round draft pick
1991 17 Bobby Wilson DT Michigan State
1992 4 Desmond Howard WR Michigan

If you look at the above with the way Allen and Shanny have drafted in terms of both adding picks during the draft and getting guys that can contribute - I think we will be fine without the two 1st rounders we gave up
And what did having a high first round picks get them all these years? Oakpo, Kerrigan, Rogers, Landry, Williams, etc. are all nice players, but they were still crap with them. We have the most important piece in RG3 and just need to hit on our other draft picks moving forward.

If we weren't down to our 3rd and 4th string safeties, we'd probably be 5-3 THIS YEAR even with everything else (cap hit, injuries to Garçon, Orakpo, Davis, etc.).

We could have done better this year with Leribeus not doing squat, although Morris was a steal in the 6th. They'll be players in free agency this off season with or without the $18mil. The future is bright!

Re: Adam Schefter this morning on Sports Fix

I believe Wilson & Hall would be have a better season if Orakpo did not get injured & if we were getting better play from the safety position. Lack of a pass rush causes the secondary to cover longer, and we are not that good. Both need to step up if they want to be on the team next year. But Hall is almost a sure bet to be dismissed in the offseason. Honestly we are 3 years away from Super bowl contention imo, but the next two drafts will determine that.
