Redskins 2013 New Era Draft Hats

Back in January, the NFL gave us a sneak peek at the new NFL Draft caps on their Instagram page. In the background, you can see the Redskins new hat at the top .

Having searched frivolously for more pictures of the Redskins new set of Draft Hats for the past few weeks, my efforts came up empty until today.

“The 59FIFTY fitted cap will be worn by players on draft day while friends and family will receive the 9FIFTY snapback and 39THIRTY stretch fit to wear,” said Katie Kulczyk, Corporate Communications Manager at New Era. “All will be available for purchase in April.”

No, the Redskins don’t have a first round pick and aren’t slated to make a pick until 51st overall, which means that more likely than not, whoever they select will not be in New York to wear his hat. However, fans of every team eat up this kind of stuff.

Brad7686’s Initial Mock Draft

Brad was the winner of the THN draft guru contest, and this mock draft will kick off the draft season for us.

  1. Detroit (0-16) Matthew Stafford, QB, Georgia– As much as I’d like to put a defender here to help aid the pathetic Lions defense, the offense is pretty bad too. So when a rare arm like Stafford’s is available to help turn the franchise around, you take it. He has tremendous arm strength, good accuracy, and a clean over-the-top release.
