Need to Know: The five Redskins with the most Pro Bowl appearances

Here is what you need to know on this Sunday, January 26, 24 days before the NFL Combine.

Nickel coverage

Here are the five Redskins (plus one) with the most Pro Bowl appearances:

LB Chris Hanburger, 9—The Redskins’ most recent Hall of Fame inductee earned first team All-Pro honors four times on top of the Pro Bowl appearances.

WR Charley Taylor, 8—Taylor was drafted as a running back and he was a pretty good one. But Otto Graham moved him to wide receiver and the rest is history including Taylor holding the NFL career record for receptions when he retired with 649.

S Ken Houston, 7—During his career Houston was selected to the Pro Bowl a total of 12 times with five of those coming when he played for the Oilers before being traded to Washington. Perhaps his most impressive feat was returning four interceptions for touchdowns during the 1971 season, tied for the most in NFL history.

CB Darrell Green, 7—The inclination here is to think, “is that all?” I mean, the guy played here for 20 years. Green made three Pro Bowls in his first five years in Washington and then made it twice more when the team made its final Super Bowl run in 1990-1991. But he never quite reached “automatic” selection status and made it just two more times, 1996 and 1997, the last 12 years of his career.

QB Sammy Baugh, 6—If you’re making your list of the all-time greatest Redskins and Baugh isn’t at the top, tear it up and start over because you’re doing it wrong. The Pro Bowl did not exist in 1937, Baugh’s rookie season or he would almost certainly have one more on his record. That year he was first team All-Pro and led the Redskins to the NFL championship.

OT Chris Samuels, 6—He was never described as dominant but he was as rock-solid a left tackle as there was in the league for the decade from 2000-2009. Samuels made the Pro Bowl four straight times from 2005-2008.

NFL Draft 2017: Going 22 deep on possible Redskins first round picks

NFL Draft 2017: Going 22 deep on possible Redskins first round picks

A lot has changed since the end of the college football season, and that's obvious when you consider all of the names the Redskins might look at with the 17th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft on Thursday night. 

Some players have surged up draft boards on the strength of strong combine or pro day efforts. Other have dropped, due to unfortunate incidents, injuries or poor measurements.

Think about players like Teez Tabor or Zach Cunningham. Those guys play in the SEC and seemed like first-round locks two months ago. Now the 'Skins might be able to value shop for those players in the second round.

The flip side: A plyer like Haason Reddick. A star at the Senior Bowl who really busted out at the Combine, the Redskins might love to have him but he could be a Top 10 selection.

All sorts of legal trouble and diluted urine samples will also impact draft night. Injuries too, or even the thought of possible injuries.

Few sporting events are as wild as the first round of the NFL Draft. Stay tuned with CSN for all your Redskins coverage. Chick Hernandez and Rich Tandler will be in Ashburn with the team, JP Finlay will be live in Philadelphia as the chaos unfolds.

Robert Kelley, Su'a Cravens, Colt McCoy among Redskins who'll have new numbers in 2017

Robert Kelley, Su'a Cravens, Colt McCoy among Redskins who'll have new numbers in 2017

The next time Robert Kelley plows over a helpless linebacker, he'll do it with a new number on his uniform.

The second-year running back is switching from No. 32 to No. 20, according to Redskins.com. And he's not the only returning player who'll take the field in 2017 with a new pair of digits.

Su'a Cravens will no longer be No. 36 for Washington. Instead, he'll change to No. 30. DJ Swearinger will be taking over No. 36 after coming over from the Cardinals, a number that he reportedly purchased from Cravens for $75,000

Then there's Colt McCoy. McCoy has donned No. 16 for the past three seasons, but he's throwing it back to his college days and will now rock No. 12.

Finally, second-year corner Kendall Fuller only spent one year with No. 38. As he hopes to improve in his sophomore campaign, he'll be doing so with No. 29.

As for the free agents, Terrelle Pryor will be replacing DeSean Jackson in more ways than one when kickoff rolls around. Not only will the ex-Brown have to shine as a top receiver for Kirk Cousins like Jackson did, but he'll also be sporting Jackson's No. 11.

New linebacker Zach Brown, meanwhile, is now No. 56, linemen Stacy McGee and Terrell McClain are Nos. 92 and 97 respectively and Brian Quick will keep No. 83 from his Rams days.
