Just this morning we wrote that signing draft picks would be a fairly simple process. This afternoon we got confirmation of that.
The Redskins announced that they have signed two of the players they tabbed in the draft last Saturday, cornerback Richard Crawford and safety Jordan Bernstine. Both were taken in the seventh round last Saturday.
It is standard for all draft picks to sign four-year deals, other details of the contracts are not immediately known.
Crawford will compete for a spot at cornerback behind Josh Wilson, DeAngelo Hall and Cedric Griffin. Bernstine steps into a crowded position but one with opportunity as there is no real clarity on the depth chart at this early stage.
