Analysis: Carlos Rogers arguably was the top-rated cornerback available in the draft, according to some scouts, and the Redskins had a tremendous meeting with him recently. Sporting good size, speed, and quickness, Rogers is a true cover-corner and should not disappoint in a Washington defense that is solid but lacking depth at cornerback with the departure of Champ Bailey and Fred Smoot during the past two offseasons. Rogers is a solid acquisition for the Redskins, while not being the high-profile pick the team often looks for.

The Auburn connection comes to fruition in Washington. The selection of quarterback Jason Campbell should solidify the plan for the future at the position. Some scouts believe Campbell has the tools to be the best quarterback in this draft, but needs time to develop the mental approach to the game.

Grade: C-
