Dan Snyder drafts

Since Dan Snyder bought the Redskins in 1999, there have been many solid draft selections to go along with the questionable ones as well. Since Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen have taken over draft duties, Skins fans have had sort of a relief in trusting the guys in charge as opposed to most of the Vinny Cerrato era.

Regardless of who has been making the selections, there has been plenty of rookie success during the Dan Snyder era. These are the my top 10 Redskins rookie campaigns since 2000:
