As the Redskins prepare for the NFL Draft Thursday night, here's a look into the archives at some of the team's draft room history from the 1970s and 1980s.
Check out these exclusive photos of the Washington Redskins' draft room during Day 2 of the 2015 NFL Draft at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.
There aren't windows. There are no distractions. Just a bunch of front office members puzzling over numbers, names and making phone calls.
Today, with vast technological advances in the last 40 years, the draft room looks just slightly different than the ones of the 1970s, as the photos above, and to the side demonstrate.
The notable figure from these black–and-whites are George Allen, though other faces you'll spot include Hall of Famer Bobby Mitchell, general manager Bobby Beathard and assistant coach Tim Temerario (in the thick glasses).
Maybe Thursday night, general manager Scot McCloughan will write something down on a 3x5 notecard, just for old time's sake.
