Redskins | Can still build winner without many picks

Mon, 12 Mar 2012 06:49:34 -0700

Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen said he is confident that the team can continue to build a quality squad both this year and in the future despite having sent four high draft picks to the St. Louis Rams for the rights to the second overall selection in April's NFL Draft. "I'm very confident," Allen said. "It's kind of the plan that we've been developing. We had 12 draft choices last year, we have six draft choices this year. The idea that you have 18 draft choices in two seasons, it's very comfortable. We understand that it's a heavy price, but when you bought your home, you probably wanted to pay a little less, too. But you like your home once you live in it. So, we're very comfortable."
