With the 79th pick in the 2011 NFL draft, the Washington Redskins selected WR Leonard Hankerson. He went to Miami and broke some of WR Michael Irvin's records so you know he can play at a high level.
The Redskins have been trading down...and trading down...so it's about time they made a pick. Hankerson will come in and be able to play quickly. He ran in the 4.4 40-yard dash range and has good ball skills. He's great value at the 79th pick as there was some small buzz that he could slip into the end of the first round.
