With the 51st pick in the draft, the Washington Redskins select…

David Amerson, CB, North Carolina State Wolfpack (6-1, 205 pounds)

After amassing 12 interceptions as a sophomore, Amerson struggled to match his production from 2011 in 2012 and fell from a possible first round pick to the Redskins here in the second. He's a big, smooth athlete with outstanding ball skills, but was repeatedly beaten deep in 2012 and did not look like the same player he did prior. Some scouts believe he could transition to safety and considering Washington has needs at both corner and safety, Amerson makes perfect sense.
