Re: With the 6th Pick, The Redskins Select...

That could turn out to be a very valuable pick. I would like to see us trade down and get late 1st and 2nd and maybe 4th or so. We can get to quality players in the 1st and 2nd. LB and DE. There seems to be some quality players coming out of college we should be able to get in those two rounds. Who knows, for some reason they actually picked pretty well last year in the 5th through 7th rounds, getting Golston and Montgomery. Maybe we can find another couple of players that later.

Re: With the 6th Pick, The Redskins Select...

The more I think about it & read what’s been reported about our cap situation, I don’t see us being in position even to sign Clements. Of course there’s always the restructuring of contracts that we do every year, and maybe they’ll have them all done by March 1 when fa opens, but I’m feeling that Gibbs has learned his lesson w/the big signings.
That said, if Clements were the ONLY fa signed it could work out so long as we don’t break the bank & further alienate our vets.
If we can’t sign Clements, which is the likely scenario, I’d like to see us scan the waiver wire post June 1, we might pick up a solid nickel back to replace Wright. Maybe Fred Smoot (I know, there’s already been a couple threads on this!)?
DE seems the highest priority to me in the draft.

Unfortunately with the way this organization operates I see this as the most likely scenario.

I'd love to see them pick up Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson (6-4, 260).
Possibly move Carter back to LB.

No way on moving Carter back to LB. He was really coming on at the end of the year and he hates playing LB. He doesn't have the speed for one thing that is why he struggled with the 49ers. Gaines to me seems to be more of LB size. I haven't seem him play, but not sure how well he would do giving up 50+ pounds to tackles in the NFL. I am not a college foot ball buff, but I would like to think there are quality DE and LB's we can get late in the first and 2nd round if we could get that by trading our #6 pick.

Re: With the 6th Pick, The Redskins Select...

You know what I would love for a change? For the SKINS to draft this year's hidden gem. For us to draft OUR Marques Colston. I'm not even talking someone who is a late rounder, I just want someone to step in and be given ROY consideration. Even though with GW, you know it's not possible because he won't start them from day one.

With the 6th pick of the draft

Washington trades his pick to Minnesota for Darren Sharper or another washed up player

dude, we gave up on the washed up player strategy years ago (except maybe AA is washed up), we now prefer to overpay younger free agents

I don't understand everyone's fascination with moving a player from their natural position, that they are good at, to LB. Arch, Carter, draft picks to name a few...I hear this all the time. "Let's sign (so and so) and move him to LB".
How about this, let's go get an LB through the draft or other. Conversions are risky.
Look at how long it took to get Carter acclimated to DE. He has played so much LB and DE he probably doesn't know where one position starts and the other ends. Just let them learn one position.

I say draft Alan Branch, trade back into the late first and take Paul Posluszny. Have Paul play MLB splitting time with Marshall, and develop Rocky in the OLB spot with some AA in the mix at OLB, and Monster Safety in blitz packages

Re: With the 6th Pick, The Redskins Select...

I watched the Senior Bowl yesterday. I even watched the practices during the week that they televised. Yes, I'm that hard up for football. There is a kid who was a 19 year old senior and played at Louisville. He play DT and is 290. He was unblockable during the practices and played real well in the game yesterday. However becasue of his age I don't think he's going to be a top ten. So we could possibly move down a few picks and draft this kid and possible pick up a DE or MLB in the 2nd round. This is what I would do because we need multiple players. I believe that you start on the front seven. That is most important. We simply CAN NOT have people running for 200 yards on us anymore.

With their first round pick of the 07 NFL draft the Cowboys take Joe Stick em out of SW Texas State. He is a professional holder for FG's and PAT's.

And this coming from a fan of an organization that gets T.O. after he demolished two teams and two Pro Bowl quarterbacks. How is Mr. Drops working out for you?

Re: With the 6th Pick, The Redskins Select...

I don't think Gaines Adams can be blocked one on one in obvious passing situations which would free Carter up on the other side and solve a lot of what ails our defense right now. The only question in my mind is can he stop the run well enough to play every down. If not, we should look at either taking Quinten Moses from Georgia or trading down for more picks. Moses got more pub at Georgia than Golston ever did and Golston is a beast. I think that DE is the one position that if upgraded can make all the other defenders look a lot better. The secondary doesn't have to cover as long and can take more chances. The linebackers can roam more freely. Most importantly, opposing offenses have to fear 3rd and 6+ which will make them more conservative and easier to defend.
