    Washington Redskins second round draft pick, wide receiver Malcolm Kelly, talks with members of the media following the first day of mini-camp at Redskins Park May 2, 2008.

    ASHBURN, Va. -- Malcolm Kelly has won the three-way battle for the Washington Redskins' No. 2 receiver.

    Kelly earned the nod ahead of veteran Antwaan Randle El and fellow second-year player Devin Thomas, Coach Jim Zorn said Wednesday.

    Kelly was limited by a knee injury as a rookie a year ago. The second-year draft pick from Oklahoma played in only five games and caught just three passes.

    Santana Moss is the Redskins' top wideout. Randle El will see action primarily as a slot receiver on passing downs.
