Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

I think this could turn out to be *THE* major debate of Redskins fans of this decade. Which is more important to our defense, D-Line or Backfield? There's pretty logical arguments behind both, and I think you can find examples where both can be proved right and wrong. Now we bite our nails for several months and hope GGrilliamsss made the right choice.

LaRon Landry - great choice! The best available player on the board. And he fills a position of need at the same time. Best of both worlds.

We don't have a crying need a defensive lineman in my view. 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):

Trade? Free agent? June 1 cut?
Or they believe they have the players they need already. The theme of that controversial ESPN article last year was that Williams believes that his scheme will work with nearly any group of players. To me, this pick indicates he believes the Redskins problems against the run were caused by his having to adjust the scheme to compensate for poor secondary play. With better LBers and Landry doing what they though Arch would do, he thinks the existing group is adequate. Or, they just didn't think the available DLs represented value and they had no trading partners. That's all I can come up with. Perhaps they will make a deal for more picks later today. I can't believe we are looking at the following as our starting defensive line:

Daniels, Griffin, Golston, Carter, and then when Griffin gets hurt

Daniels, Montgomery, Golston, Carter

I hope Landry is really. really good against the run.

We definately improved the secondary, but no one in it is a top-notch cover guy that we can rely on. Springs is our best cover man and he's aging and injured way too often. Moreover, NO corner of safety is covering their man (assuming we're talking about man coverage) for more than a few seconds. I don't know, the improved secondary helps, I just would have liked to have seen us draft Okoye or trade down (if possible) to nab a DE.

Landry is a fine player, but receivers will have all day to beat him because we have NO PASS RUSH! Thanks Vinny and Dan. I think I'm gonna be sick.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

True, we definitely need to address our D-line but I have confident in Gregg, he knows what to do.. Now our CBs are healthy, which means we can bring pressure by blitzing more, especially with Taylor and Landry (whom are designed to blitz).. I don't think we would have much of problems like last year..

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Landry projected by most scouts as a mid-first rounder until he ran a 4.35 at the combine?

But, this is a waste of time, really.. We can't say anything until we see Landry plays and see how it pans out.. So

Oh I agree with trading down. That was probably plan A and felt it didn't work out, so they chose plan B. It wasn't a bad move though, but probably wasn't their best move. Still, Landry and Taylor together in the secondary? That is going to be interesting.

Interesting, or a trian wreck?
That first time Landry blows an assignment, his head is going to be on a platter.
