Crat92 presents The Calvin Johnson Poll

Let's just suppose for a second that for some strange ocurrence that Calvin Johnson actually fell to us at #6. What would you do if you were the Redskins?

Vote or Sheriff Gonna Getcha will ban you

Re: Crat92 presents The Calvin Johnson Poll

I went with C because trade the pick while on the clock is not an option.

Still, I can think of much worse things then ending up with CJ on the roster come camp.

Essentially C and what you're saying are the same idea. I see what you're saying though, what if someone wanted to move up to #6 but didn't want CJ? Let's just assume they do here

Well damn...

Crat92 just had a lengthy heart to heart discussion. I told him we still want him to be a part of the Warpath in 2007. He's part our long range plans. He's a super-smart guy who really posts his guts out everytime so I've adjusted the poll on his behalf.

For those that had picked C, I apologize for the change but Crat shelled out the big bucks to sponsor this poll.

Re: Crat92 presents The Calvin Johnson Poll

Wow. I'm the only vote for pass on him.

Packaging the 6th would be an ideal option, but it would have to be worth it. Right now, trading down looks like we miss out on Okoye to me. I don't want that. He's such a unique prospect, and this is our only chance to get him.

If the Vikings would give up a 2nd to move up one spot for him, I would want that trade. But that's the only reasonable trade I'd take.

Re: Crat92 presents The Calvin Johnson Poll

if by chance we have an option to pick Calvin, there is no way you can pass up on that guy. He would give us a legitament threat at #2 WR. But then that leaves us w/ Lloyd and El competing for #3 and the other religated to 4 wide sets or 5 wide sets, which are few and far between. The only way we are getting Calvin is if we make a deal to move to #3 or #4. if that doesn't happen, we will trade down for more picks. I dont know that any one on the staff is GAGA over the D-lineman that will be there at #6. I get the feeling they think they can get a D-lineman just as good later in the round, and pick up some depth with the additional picks gained. I would like to see us draft a LB in the 2nd or 3rd, to groom for MLB when Fletch is gone or diminished after 2 or 3 years.

for the sake of arguement, why do you want him here so bad? and how do you think our defense will play with the same guys from last season?

Re: Crat92 presents The Calvin Johnson Poll

If our needs are not at wide receiver but we are considering taking him due to his huge upside then I would think the other five teams would be so inclined to take him just as easily as we would. He won't be there at #6. If he is, I say trade the #6 for more picks.
