there are only a few sure things and landry is one of them, he is the second best player in this draft and best defensive player.....his knock for not being stout in the run game is listed as his only weakness, and even so hes not a pussy in the run game, he tackles extremely well. yeah he cant take on a full back but we dont need him to do things like that, we need a coverage safety more than a run stopping safety.....hell if you wanted a run stopper why get rid of archeletta. landry has put on 15 pounds since his last football game and still ran a 4.38......he is a sure thing pal.
No such thing, as an UNPROVEN at this level "SURE THING".
We don't need to waste time on LL, we have greater NEEDS. We need D line help NOW, that's where I certainly hope we will focus in the draft. This is our MOST important area to be concerned with going into this draft.

Re: Should the Redskins consider LSU Safety Laron Landry with the 6th overall pick

there are sure things at this level. nobody believes in that because people only report on the guys who werent. a sure thing doesnt have to go to pro bowls every year or shit like that. a sure thing is he will be a good pro player, talent wise, locker room, learning the system, being a solid starter in teh league....thats a sure thing. someone said that lavar wasnt a sure thing, well i think he went to 3 or 4 pro bowls right????? anyways i am not going to defend someone being a sure thing too much longer because i know everyone and thier underdog mentality wont agree with it, but there are sure things and there is evidence. but anywyas LARON LANDRY IS THE BEST PICK WE CAN MAKE IF WE STAY PUT, IF WE TRADE BACK HE WONT BE THERE AND WE HAVE OTHER OPTIONS.

I personally don't like the idea of going with Landry. And as much as we have OVERdiscussed this, maybe all this talk will get the Falcons believing we are gonna take him. I really don't think the skins will select landry with pick 6 but maybe all you landry supporters can hype it up enough to scare some teams!! I would love to trade down a few spots

Re: Should the Redskins consider LSU Safety Laron Landry with the 6th overall pick

need DL. either trade down and get carriker or okoye, or pick one of them (or possibly adams IF the scouts are sure he'll hit the weight room) if you can't find a partner.

landry or CJ would be nice, but landry isn't a big enough upgrade over prioleau to outpace the increased production from an upgrade on the DL (from terrible to good/great at one spot).

ryan leaf was a sure thing :P

doesn't always work out. CJ and peterson are far more "sure" than landry though.

landry is an upgrade over priloeau but

1. why drafting ladry makes sense: putting him with sean taylor great tandem he can blend perfectly with taylor

2. why trading down makes sense: we could get additional picks and we could colse a couple of holes versus just one

3. why taking a stud d lineman makes the MOST sense: ok our youngest starter is andre carter and he is going to be 28 when the season started our run defense was terrible and we had how many sacks ridicolous let us ask ed reed and ronde barber and even nick harper last year how good it felt to only have to cover for 3 to 5 seconds versus10 to 15 for us i think people are forgetting that it all starts in the trenches.

Where is That Guy he usually posts the smart things so people can stop posting stupid things

I like how our DL situation could be summarized as "everybody sucks", be completely accurate, and some people will still argue that theres a better use of the pick.

Re: Should the Redskins consider LSU Safety Laron Landry with the 6th overall pick

I've all but given up explaining to people that the defensive line is a bigger need than the secondary.

It would be like forgoing deadbolts on the front door to your house but strengthening the locks on your bedroom door.

I'd rather reinforce the bed frame.

Re: Should the Redskins consider LSU Safety Laron Landry with the 6th overall pick

WASUP SKINS FANS.......First I would like to thank you all for allowing me to join your site. Now on L. Landry everything Ive read about him has been positive speed. tackling & attitude but we need D-line help bad. Ive been following the available free agents and there are still a few decent Dt out there who could help strengthen our line and the front office seems to be attempting to show restraint and hopfully this will continue into the season. HAIL TO TH REDSKINS...............

Re: Should the Redskins consider LSU Safety Laron Landry with the 6th overall pick

welcome zo, and beems, i love the analogy. our secondary had better be the best tacklers of all time. because if we don't fix our defensive line, there will be plenty of down field tackles available

Re: Should the Redskins consider LSU Safety Laron Landry with the 6th overall pick

That does make a lot of sense as well. I'd much rather have someone get stopped for a short gain, rather than have the most SURE TACKLING secondary ever after the RB has already gotten four or five yards.

What kind of burglar are you expecting?

Andre Carter is not the youngest defensive lineman, btw. Unless Golston and Montgomery are getting cut, we should see a lot more of them in the rotation this year. Regardless, we still need an infusion of youth along that line, maybe it's not imperative for the 2007 season but we are going to be hurting a lot sooner than later. In the next 2-3 years time we're probably losing Griffin, Daniels, Wynn, Salave'a due to age , money or health. The carry-overs would be Carter, Golston, Montgomery and Evans...{whimper}...

golston and montgomery don't really count since they're not starting quality linemen at this point. until they are, you've got to assume them as question marks AT BEST.
