Re: Since we are trading down.......

if we trade down take Alan Branch, then take Josh Wilson in the 2nd. A gaurd later in the draft

But Landry would look good in Burgundy and gold

Re: Since we are trading down.......

I'd trade down as far as possible to acquire more picks. We need young blood on defense and there are going to be quality players late in the first round.

I say to around 15th but I have no idea about a target, or receipt in return.

Okoye seems to be on the rise, with Anderson, and Adams. HailRedskins.com has the best Mock Draft forum bar none!

For a team that finished the season 5-11 with multiple positions that could use an upgrade, I would agree that trading down to recoup a couple of those DP we so generously gave away may not be a bad idea. However, it's important in whatever draft day decisions are made, we come away with a starting caliber player. It would not be wise to relinquish that position and not do so.

why? he has the size and ability to dominate beside Griffin. he would help free up our ends to create more sacks. Reports are he's lazy yada yada yada, but he was the leading force on a michigan team who ranked in the top 5 against the run.

Re: Since we are trading down.......

As far as I'm concerned, let him keep falling. Hopefully we could trade down and STILL pick him up.

say no to anderson and branch when you step in the polls

say yes to okoye 2007 or landry 2007

This message was spornsored by The Earthquake foundation a proud sponsor of the NFL and well respected elite group in the quake economy
Adams had the strength in college, but does he have the strength to hold up against the run in the NFL? And it's a pretty big assumption to figure he can put on 15 pounds AND not lose any speed.

All I'm saying is that all 3 of the top DEs (Adams, Anderson, Carriker) have questions. You can make a case that any one of them are the best.

Besides, we have Andre Carter on one side who is already in the smaller, speed rusher mold. Drafting Adams would be duplicative for us.

I can agree with you on your top two preferences though; Okoye would be my #1 choice by far, and if we ended up with Landry I wouldn't be disappointed.

Re: Since we are trading down.......

I have to say that Carter was actually more of an asset in run support later in the season than Daniels. He was racking up loads of tackles, many for losses.

I totally agree, the sinking of Alan Branch doesn't make a lot of sense to me. He was a dominant player against big time competition this past year. I like Okoye better because of the upside, but these people that think Branch should fall way down to 25 or 30 are taking the bad workout thing way too far.

The guy makes an impact.

Re: Since we are trading down.......

I would like to see us draft LL if we stay at 6. His cover skills will help make our D Line better, especially since since we are a stop the run first Defense. Slide ST up in the box to create some havoc.

Branch strikes me as a guy who could bust, but mcuh more likely is headed for a slightly above average NFL career.

He's not great value in the top half of the round, but we certainly could use him.

if he falls I say we trade down and take him. he reminds me of Terrell Suggs who slipped in the draft and the ravens picked him up he became a beast...

not to mention the effect of haloti ngata on ray lewis's career

Re: Since we are trading down.......

This is the best thread ever! So many LL boosters! Where have you been all my life? It's like you all popped out of the woodwork! It makes so much sense to go after LL if we stay at six. It gets my heart pumping just thinking about it.

So according to this thread and other sources:

There are major question marks about the top DL, really young (Okoye), lazy and inconsistent (Branch), too small (Adams), too slow (Carriker), inexperienced (Anderson).

Here are the question marks about Landry:

First year starter? Career probowler? Hall of Famer?

Umm. It seems obvious to me. Thank God I found some company not on extremeskins.

Landry or Okoye at six- or seven or eight if we're lucky. Or trade down to 9-14 and take a question marker with a second round insurance policy.

That's my take.

Re: Since we are trading down.......

even if Landry is the second coming of Ronnie Lott, it still makes no sense to take him. he will have about 100 tackles, all 10-15 yards past the line of scrimmage. what good does that do anyone?
