I remember after Norv was hired, acquiring a QB was the top priority and early speculation was would the Redskins be in the market to trade for Jeff George (and give up that #3 pick) or were they going to bid for the Matt Flynn of that offseason, Scott Mitchell and draft another position at 3 or go ahead and use the #3 on Dilfer (who was considered the top guy early in the process with Heath coming on as the build up to the draft wore on) or Shuler.
Boy in retrospect we were ****ed any way we went. But despite revisionist history, Shuler and Dilfer were legit 1st round picks that season. Both were graded lower than the top 2 the season before (Bledsoe & Mirer) and it was felt that the Skins were reaching for a QB at 3, but it's not like they (Shuler/Dilfer) were second round graded players that the Skins were reaching for. It was more like they were first round graded but between picks 8-15 or so.
Oh and to the OP, cool video. I had never seen the actual broadcast (talking heads leading in and out) of that selection before. Thanks.
