Flash Analysis

When Washington Redskins veteran OLT Chris Samuels announced his retirement earlier this year, it became apparent that the team would have to replace him with a player high in this year's draft.

League sources said that head coach Mike Shanahan perfers athletic left tackles with long arms and a long reach.

With that being the case, the team targeted University of Oklahoma LT Trent Williams.

With Williams in the fold, Stephon Heyer can move to right tackle.
