 Redskins\' seventh-rounder Horton a quick study
posted 8 years ago

No matter what the Redskins' personnel department might say, choosing a player 249th overall is a crapshoot. At that point, you could gamble on the player not being drafted and have a decent shot of signing him as a free agent. But the Redskins went ahead and took UCLA safety Chris Horton in the seventh round, and four games into his rookie season, they can't keep him off the field. From the first time he put on the burgundy and gold in the Hall of Fame preseason game, he's consistently been around the football. When the team's former starting safety Reed Doughty sent Horton a text that he might be too sick to play against the Saints in Week 2, he had no clue he was about to be Wally Pipped. Horton, who grew up in the Fifth Ward in New Orleans, had two interceptions and a fumble recovery in the Redskins' 29-24 victory over his childhood team. He earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors and became an instant fan favorite. Head coach Jim Zorn attempted to temper some of the enthusiasm by saying Doughty would remain the starter, but it was too late. After a win over the Cardinals, Horton was promoted to starting strong safety against the Cowboys. But if you're worried about all this going to Horton's head, you've got the wrong kid.
