The Redskins first draft post-Joe Gibbs and (just as important) post-defensive coordinator Gregg Williams reached the next level of failure on Tuesday when safety Kareem Moore was waived.Applauded at the time for trading around to acquire 10 picks, only two remain with the Redskins today second-round tight end Fred Davis (pictured) and seventh-round linebacker Rob Jackson (who was a college defensive end). Second round: Devin Thomas (cut last year, signed with Giants); Davis (starting tight end with the Redskins) and Malcolm Kelly (cut in camp, free agent). Third round: Chad Rinehart (cut during 2010 off-season, on Buffalos roster). Fourth round: Justin Tryon (traded to Indianapolis during 2010 training camp, now on Giants injured reserve). Sixth round: Durant Brooks (cut after six games) and Moore (13 starts) and Colt Brennan (cut early in 2010 training camp). Seventh round: Rob Jackson (reserve OLB for Redskins) and Chris Horton (started 15 games before being cut this preseason).
