ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins will make their inaugural 2013 NFL Draft pick tonight in New York.

Left without a first round pick for the next two seasons, the newest member of the Redskins won’t have his name called until sometime after 8 p.m. when the 51st overall selection is announced.

No doubt it’s a whirlwind, anxiety filled wait for the yet to be determined young man. And although Adam Carriker’s wait was much shorter, it was no less chaotic, frenzied, uncertain and angst filled.

The St. Louis Rams and Jim Haslett took Carriker with the 13th overall pick in 2007.

During a recent taping of 4th & Pain, the radio show he co-hosts with me, the Nebraska product shared his draft day experience. It sheds a little light on what his newest teammates will go through this weekend.

“You have no idea where you’re going to go, you really don’t know what position you’re going to play,” Carriker said. “I could play 3-4 (defensive end), I could play 4-3, I didn’t know how that was going to play out. The night before there was a lot of butterflies. It was a lot of unknowns.”

His Story

4th & Pain with Adam Carriker and Chuck Carroll airs each weekday at noon on 4thAndPain.com and Sunday mornings at 8 o’clock on 106.7 The Fan. Follow the show on Twitter: @4thAndPain.
