A Look Back At The Redskins On National Signing Day

With today marking the annual National Signing Day for high schoolers across the country, we look back to when current Redskins were in their shoes (all photos via Rivals.com).

With today marking the annual National Signing Day for high schoolers across the country, Redskins.com looks back when current Redskins were in their shoes.

It's National Signing Day, and while all eyes are on the top prospects of the Class of 2016 today as they make their college choices, Redskins.com is taking it back a few years.

Before making it to the NFL and eventually earning a spot on the Redskins' roster, the guys currently calling Washington home had to make the same decision.

Above is a gallery of some of the guys in high school. Some are simply unrecognizable (is that really Trent Murphy?) while others like Jamison Crowder haven't changed a bit.
