Is the small gap in size, speed, and strength really going to make a difference?

They are both going to be good, but it doesn't make a lick of sense for a team to trade up for CJ when they could trade down and get Bowe, IMO.
according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Re: Call your draft pick

I've posted this at least a dozen times but her goes again:

Gaines Adams (but I still think they should try to trade down)

Underweight not undersized. He can easily put on 15 lbs.

Re: Call your draft pick

I call for the best available player left, taking a position of need only if the talent is equivalent among the choices available, or if the best player is at a position of need. If Calvin Johnson is there, I would draft him.

We don't have a crying need a defensive lineman in my view, but if the best player left is one, I'm for it. Here's Philip Daniels on why our sack totals were low (when we ran three man lines to protect the secondary) and why they were high (when we rushed four man lines):

WarpathInsiders.com Forums

I think we will pick the best available player, regardless of what position he plays almost. This is exactly what Coach Joe Gibbs said:

Gibbs Allows Workout Plan - washingtonpost.com

From the Washington Post:
Washington is looking for help at defensive end, and Gaines Adams of Clemson and Jamaal Anderson of Arkansas are regarded as the two best players at the position. Gibbs said he would be happy with either. "He's going to be a real good football player," Gibbs said of the Redskins' potential selection. "At six, we're trying to pick a player almost irregardless of what position he plays, is a player who is going to make a real impact, go to Pro Bowls for you."

Re: Call your draft pick

the more I look at what we need, the more i want alan branch. with him and griffin anchoring the line fletcher will be able to make plays and also they will create more opportunities for the dends... Plus the fact that we can now trade down and still get him its even better
That got ugly fast

Amobi Okoye. I'm sold on the guy. He's done pretty much whatever he puts his mind to in life. Plus, if he works out, he's got potential bonus years with us due to his age.

Re: Call your draft pick

We have more pressing needs than WR.

Re: Call your draft pick

A while ago, I would've said Branch or Adams. However, the more I learn about Okoye, the more I like the idea of drafting him.

If we can keep him loyal to us, we'll have a pass rusher for a LONG, LONG time.
