I figured someone would've picked him up by now.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Have to admit I have mixed emotions. We really needed a DE or DT very badly, but to be honest if I was in the FO I would have been tempted also to get Landry. Sure we have ST, but what if this guy is another ST? A 4 year starter at LSU is pretty damn good in my opinion and a definite upgrade at safety over Prioleau. In short my Redskin brethren, all is not lost. I think Landry is going to be the real deal for us and well worth the pick. Tomorrow is where it is going to get really interesting.

I had that thought too. They were stuck at 6 and felt they had to get "value". They probably could have traded down but didn't for similar reasons. They don't want to look like they got taken, even though the results for them might have been marginally better.

For example, you may be better off with a low 1st and a 3rd, even though the pundits might be left scratching their heads. You can help the DL with the low 1st and with the 3rd, well Cooley was taken in the 3rd. You have to do what's best for your team which by the way was 31st on defense last year.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Quinn falling doesn't surprise me b/c he is a product of the system guy. Landry makes me nervous b/c if u notice all of his highlite reels are of blitzes where an O-linemen doubles a d-linemen and he finds a crease. There are barely any clips of him in coverage AND with our D-line i don't know how many teams are going to double griff or daniels to create those kinds of creases. My prediction is that we are going to trade into the 2nd or 3rd round to get a D-lineman or guard.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

I must say that it must be impossible to trade in this draft. If that is the case then I am a little less upset about our pick.

I really thought that Miami would be all over trading up and I was absolutely floored when they took Ginn.

The thing that worries me the most about Landry is that we now have two guys who are head hunters and that could be both good and bad.

I guess it all depends on how our D line shakes out.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Well I thought they would have gone D-Line but Landry is a great player. My quesion is who should the Skins target in free agency to bolster the D Line and guard? The only name I see that keeps coming up in posts is Ian Scott? Is there anyone else out there that can help?

As far as guard - isn't Floyd "Pork Chop" Womack still available? He reminds me of Dockery a little in being a road grader type of guard.

Yuo know in order to trade up or down, you have to have a trade partner that you can work out a compatible deal with. Not as easy as many people seem to think, it's not an automatic, we're at the 12th pick now and there has not been a trade yet. I just hope we can address some of the other needs we have with trades, early cuts, or later round DP and UD FA.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

I was in the Gaines Adam or Alan Branch camp because I thought we needed to upgrade our defensive line, BUT drafting Landry will really improve our passing defense and we can now concentrate our 2nd day picks on picking up d-linemen. We've now got two safeties who are pretty interchangeable, and a ton of depth in the secondary with Fox, Prioleau. This pick will make ST even more dangerous, because now you don't know who is coming or staying back, and both guys can cover and hit.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Well, when we first picked Landry, I was FURIOUS that we didnt trade down. I thought everything worked out perfectly for us.... now seeing how the draft is going; I can't be mad at the Skins' for not trading down, they really had no partners.

As far as Landry...I really wanted to go defensive line. I just think we needed a defensive end, and I would have liked to take Anderson or Okoye. Now part of me (now that its over) am glad we didnt get a DT, because we have Griffin and two guys we drafted last year who I think can be quite good. I'm not estatic, but after seeing that we really couldnt trade down, I'm not as dissapointed as I was initially, I thought I was going to cry.

If Landry doesn't work out I'm gonna get a LOT of angry Private Messages in three years.
