2011 NFL Draft re-do: There's no way Ryan Kerrigan falls to the Redskins

2011 NFL Draft re-do: There's no way Ryan Kerrigan falls to the Redskins

Over the past nine years, Redskins edge rusher Ryan Kerrigan has been one of the best at his position in the NFL.

The 2011 draft class was loaded on the defensive side of the ball, as the group featured future studs Von Miller, J.J. Watt, Justin Houston, Cameron Jordan, Cameron Heyward and Robert Quinn. Even with all that star power, Kerrigan has held his own.

In our 2011 redraft at NBC Sports Washington, Kerrigan did not come close to falling to the 16th selection where the Redskins originally grabbed him.

With Kerrigan off the board, the Redskins were tasked with a difficult decision at No. 16. Do they take another edge rusher, or address a different position of need?

Kerrigan's 90 career sacks are the fourth-most in the league since 2011. Entering his 10th season with the team, he remains just one sack behind Dexter Manley for the Redskins' all-time sack record.

One of the best traits Kerrigan has had throughout his NFL career has been his durability. Over the first eight seasons of his NFL career, the 2011 first-round pick did not miss a game. He's played at a high level for the Burgundy and Gold for much of his career, earning four Pro Bowl honors.
