Draft Day Party Brings Out 21,000 Redskins Fans

Posted May 11, 2014

The annual event at FedExField featured appearances by several current and former Redskins, as fans from all over took part in the festivities


Al Waters made the hour-long drive from Centreville, Md., Saturday to take part in the Washington Redskins’ annual Draft Day Party.

The trip to FedExField, he said, was well-worth it, as Waters noticed a special atmosphere in the air as fans and current and former Redskins players alike took part in the festivities.

“I think everyone is excited,” Waters said of both the Draft Day Party and the upcoming Redskins season.

When it was all said and done, 21,000 fans braved the at-times rainy weather to take part in the annual event, where they saw some of their favorite players and also had the chance to take part in tailgating — as well as watch rounds four through seven of the 2014 NFL Draft on the HD video boards inside the stadium.

“I am so excited to be here,” said Dianna Allen of Arlington, Va. “I love that the players want to come out here and see the fans. It shows that they are excited for the season.”

Those players included current Redskins Darrel Young, Niles Paul, Roy Helu, Jr., Evan Royster, Adam Gettis, Barry Cofield, Chris Baker, Chris Neild, Nick Sundberg, Robert Griffin III, Leonard Hankerson and Doug Worthington, as well as Redskins alums Ricky Ervins, Mike Nelms and Ken Harvey.

The event wrapped up when fans gathered inside of the bowl in the north end zone, where Hankerson, Worthington and Nelms joined Larry Michael, the Voice of the Redskins, on the stage.

Soon after, chants of “RG3” could be heard as quarterback Robert Griffin III emerged from the tunnel and made the 100-yard jog to the stage, where he thanked the fans for coming out, promising the team will “match their dedication” this season.

Among those dedicated fans was Allen, who said she enjoyed all aspects of the Draft Day Party — the Redskins Marching Band, the three Lombardi trophies, the players, the cheerleaders and all the action on the Bud Light Pavilion.

“I have been a Redskins fan all of my life,” Allen said. “And to be a part of this draft party is quite the experience.”
