Re: RUMOR: Skins looking to trade up for C.J.

on the value chart the #2 pick is 2600 points, and #6 is 1600 points. by that chart, if we gave up a future first, we would be getting ripped off if we had the 14th or higher pick next year, 15th would be even, and 16th and lower would be a steal for us.

The guy is naturally talented. If the Skins do find a way to get him i willing to bet he would push Moss to No. 2 right away.
Jank, I wouldn't hold my breath on this one.

Yea this guy has serious upside ....no doubt. But were not trading up.

And SM #2 right away? Are you kiddin?

Re: RUMOR: Skins looking to trade up for C.J.

If Gibbs believes that we will be good this year, he may be thinking that giving up next years number one pick to move up would be worth it. I do agree with ThatGuy in that you can't cover both CJ and Moss. Our offense would really be set for a long time.

What do we know about CJ after the catch? Not very much, that's what.

I would much rather see the ball in the hands of Moss and Cooley, and being run by Portis and Betts than going downfield with a 28% of completion to Calvin Johnson.

Because damn if it's unsucccessful and we have to punt...we are never going to catch the other team in score with our defense.
Did you see this guy play??????????????????? The last thing I would worry about is CJ after the catch. Trust me. Guy played w/ a terrible college QB and still was a beast. Cooley is a nice TE but he can't run like this guy. Not even close. Just his size, jumping ability and physicality alone will cause all kinds of problems in the red zone where we seem to stuggle.

I would LOVE to see Moss and CJ as our starting WR's w/ ARE as a 3rd wideout and Cooley at TE. Plus Portis and Betts as RB's?? We would have an unstopable offense. I hope like hell we get this guy cause he is the best player in the draft.

I don't think were moving up either. At least I hope not!
The last thing we need to do is start giving next years picks away? Haven't we learned anything?
Move DOWN get more draft picks.......get the defensive help we NEED!
Not to say this kid won't be good or better? Who knows....he hasn't played at this level. We NEED to adress our NEEDS, and stop throwing away draft picks, they are way to valuable!

Re: RUMOR: Skins looking to trade up for C.J.

Well, Michael Smith on NFL Live just said the Redskins were the best fit for Johnson, so it must be so.

As much as I'd rather trade down to get more picks, and get a good DT, I'd love to see an offense with Moss, Johnson, ARE, Cooley, and Portis.

Re: RUMOR: Skins looking to trade up for C.J.

Do we really need more weapons on offense though?

I'd really hate to see us trade up.

Just because "another" reporter like Michael Smith says the SKINS are the BEST fit.....it must be so?

These are just reporters like the ones at PFT, etc., just an opinion.
I'd like to see us get a great potential WR, but I think our NEEDS are very different. I quess we'll know more next month......after about 5 thousand different reporters give us 5 thousand different reports of who we will be drafting.

Re: RUMOR: Skins looking to trade up for C.J.

Part of me is considering CJ as well. I mean we made some moves on D. I'd love to see if GW could get this ship turned around just with Fletcher-Baker, THEN we go DT or DE next year if we suck so much ass we have to pick early again.

But again, I'm also of the opinion that as long as we DON'T take RB or QB, I'm fine.

Do you think you can turn around a 31st ranked D with FLETCH? Or even Fletch/ Smoot? Come on, that's just crazy.

I hope also we don't get a QB/RB in the draft, cause we don't need either?

Re: RUMOR: Skins looking to trade up for C.J.

For arguements sake...
If CJ is still available at 4, the 4th pick is valued at 1800 and the 6th is 1600. We could probably come up with something that wouldn't break the bank to trade with Tampa. They really don't need another WR, but will feel forced to take the obvious best player on the board unless they have a reason not to. That could be a senario that the skins would explore if they really are not happy with the defensive players available that high and they can't trade down for more picks.

Re: RUMOR: Skins looking to trade up for C.J.

This thread has snowballed out of control. It's like a few people on here got excited about an offense with CJ, started describing the possibilities, a few more people read those posts, they got excited, and before you know it people are actually thinking it's a good idea to trade up to get him.

If he fell to us at #6, I can see the logic in refusing to pass up on him. But trading up? Guys, this is a team sport. One player does not a team make.

We need multiple talented players.

CJ seems like an unbelievable prospect. But what if we traded down and acquired a 2nd and a 3rd rounder? People are getting all excited about CJ, but seem to be forgetting that a 2nd or 3rd round pick can turn into a Guard who ends up to be the next Steve Hutchinson.

Hell, Clinton Portis was a 2nd rounder.

CJ isn't the only stud out there this year. We just have to be shrewd, do our homework, and unearth the gems.

Why not? do you think we have a realistic shot at the superbowl next season? I think we could wait until 08' when we have a near handful of draft picks, or we could just trade springs for a 2nd or 3rd and draft quinton moses, he is dropping big time and i wouldnt be suprised if he ends up in the 4th-5th round.

I say draft him if he falls, but we cant trade up, thats a horrible idea, he is a hell of a player, but we will have to give up picks next year to move up and i dont see the point in that.

Re: RUMOR: Skins looking to trade up for C.J.

Why would we ever trade up??? It makes no sense. Just let Detroit take him so he won't affect anything, he will be stuck in Detroit. If they do, Quinn or Peterson will slip down to six and our pick will become very valuable to trade down. We can still get a great player, maybe L. Landry at 8 and a DE at 40. Or Amobi at 8 and Grubbs at 40.
