The Washington Times - April 23, 2009, 08:36AM

During Dan Snyder’s first eight drafts as Washington’s owner (not counting 2001 when coach Marty Schottenheimer was in control), the Redskins didn’t fare as well as their NFC East rivals: the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. Washington had the fewest picks (52) and starting seasons (43). The Eagles had the most picks (68) and second-most starting seasons (60). The Cowboys were at 59 and 55, the Giants at 58 and 52.
