Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

i guess im like the most of you . . . wanted the team to address their biggest weakness but cant complaint about picking up a potentially great safety . . . when and if grif goes down it could kill the season

miami gets the player they wanted in quinn, we and the other teams looking to trade down got schooled

I just want to go on record and say I think the emergence of and media insanity over the Combine is probably the worst thing to happen to the NFL in years.

I honestly do not know much about Anderson and haven't seen him play (other than in highlights and 1 game). But, I would have been happy with drafting a DE. I would have been thrilled with drafting Okoye.

Also, that we have already improved the secondary (with Smoot and Macklin), suggests to me that it was time to focus on the D-line.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

The Skins said they wanted to take the best player available and they did. I heard some analysts say the two surefire picks in the draft were Calvin Johnson and LaRon Landry.

I just hope Miami misses out on Quinn and Peterson. I hate everything about the dolphins. I hate their colors, I hate Dan Marino, and I hate their stupid logo on their helmets. Come on, that thing is just ridiculous looking.

There I got it out, I feel much better now.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Like I said, nobody's questioning whether the kid can hit. We've already got a Human Heat Seeking Missile at safety. I seem to recall we were all very excited about another Big Hitter at safety last year as well. What happened to that guy? Or our defense for that matter.

Yeah, it would have been a reach at six, but I was really impressed with all the background on his character and personality. Sure seemed like a guy who could have matured into a team leader and core of the defense.

I would have been fine with him. I thought he rivaled Adams...in fact, I think Anderson will be more effective in the NFL than Adams. But we could have really used him or Okoye. We didn't need to fill that safty position.
I am very disappointed.
That's it, I'm going to get back to my drinking. See you guys later.

Before I go, all I can say is, all of you that said or think Landry was the answer, you better be right, cause that's all we have on defense is a secondary.

There does seem to be an imbalance. It says to me that the Fantasy Football, big name, marketing approach is not yet dead at Redskins Park. Cerrato's statement that you don't draft for need is the most idiotic thing I've heard, and he's supposed to be the knowledgeable component of the Snyder/Vinny tandem. If you had ten picks you can do that, but we had just one and you need to use that one to get well. I would have been willing to take my chances with Pray-Low or Stout-Mire. We need more talent, especially at the DE position.

Miami didn't draft Quinn....I figured for sure they would've taken him.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Doesn't it feel like this pick was made because it was the most obvious and least likely to get us ridiculed by NFL commentators, rather than making a move we think would help us the most, even if it might be riskier or more of a waste of such a high pick?

I'm shocked that he might fall to the middle, or even late, 1st round.
