Redskins Legacy: Beathard Would Have Drafted Marino In 1983


In the 1983 draft, the Redskins took tiny but electrifying Texas A&I cornerback Darrell Green with the last of the 28 first-round picks.

Today, Green is a Redskins legend. He played 20 years in D.C. and was once tied for the most seasons with one team in NFL history. Number 28 intercepted a Redskin-record 54 passes and was a cornerstone on two Super Bowl-winning teams. He entered the Hall of Fame in 2008.

But the history books would be different had the Dolphins with the 27th pick not taken Dan Marino, a gifted quarterback from the University of Pittsburgh who is also enshrined today in Canton.
