Re: If the Redskins Trade Down to the middle of the 1st round....

There's a long time before the draft and we have some money say if a player like Simeon Rice is cut by TB (which according to L. Pascarelli is a good possibility). He just turned 33 and would fit nicely into Gibbs' win a Super Bowl now strategy. We could shore up the pass rush with a signing like that and be able to draft for value not need at 6 or trade down for more picks to stock pile depth. I think the skins may be laying low for possibilities like this late in the offseason.

Re: If the Redskins Trade Down to the middle of the 1st round....

Drafting a great DL is the top priority-- Adams or Okoye. If we don't get one of those guys, we'll continue to be in trouble. If we trade down it shouldn't be so far down we won't get Okoye, then we should go for DE's on our next two picks. If our DE's don't work out, we should go for a top DE next year and try to fill other needs with FA's.

Is anyone worried about Okoye's size? 282 doesn't really sound like a run stuffer to me. They need a big guy to eat up double teams so Griff and Fletcher can eat people up.

he's old and dropped off quite a bit. he might be a decent situational player for our craptacular DL, but he's just not the answer as a starting, every own DE right now.

combine weight was 302, and he's 6'1" so weight to height isn't bad. he's not a 350lb behemoth, but neither is rod coleman or tommy harris, and that's the type of guy you're hoping you get.
