Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

went back and read a tues wash post article on landry, seems some other nfc execs/scouts dont think landry is cerebral or football knowledgable enough . . . pairing him with ST might be bad idea having two of the same type players, might hurt STs development (probaly the most certain negative sideeffect of adding a rook safety) . . . go skins

Well, you would think ... but don't be so sure. Watch them take a tight end, a receiver, an offensive guard. It would be a small miracle if they are able to find anyone in the 5th round who could make an impact no matter where they pick.

This front office just doesn't like to take defensive linemen high in the draft.

What people don't realize is that a good secondary = sacks. Our D- line looked so bad last year because our secondary couldn't cover my grandma (and she runs a 4.9 40), and quarterbacks were making quick throws. The D Line wasn't great, but it wasn't as nearly as bad as it looked. We can pick up some veterans later. Landry is solid at 6, he was the best on the board.

WHAT!! The skins have 8 CB/SS/FS. Why is a team that had 19 sacks all last year and one of the worst run defenses in the league. Drafting a safety. Skins need help on the Dline. Bad Pick

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Given that they didn't have a trade partner, they took the highest rated D player on their board. Now maybe they didn't evaluate talent correctly (a serious possibility with this group, no doubt) but given that, they made a responsible move as a FO.

Plus, it's clear that Williams believes that the key to his D is proper effective safety play. Now he's got great young talent there. As for the D line, let's hope they can pick up a decent late rounder or late FA to bolster things, and maybe if our LBs and Safeties can play ball properly, our D-line will look better. It's not impossible that bad secondary and LB play made the line look worse... (obviously, this is not conventional wisdom, but perhaps that what GW and co think--and he did have top-10 Ds for us).

A responsible pick--not flashy. That's pretty good from this bunch. And I assume that no one wanted to trade down with us, which is what we all really wanted.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Initially I didn't like the pick, but with the addition of Smoot and Fletcher, I think this pick might be OK. Smoot and FLetcher will improve our run support at the second level to allow Taylor and Landry to play more "Center Field" in Cover 2 rather than having to play run support first. I remeber too many times on replay watching Taylor/Arch/Fox do the "attack the line...then Oh @$&#"...and turn and run to catch up to a receiver behind them or down the middle.
I think Carter will play better this year, Griffin if healthy, will be fine for another year or two. The two young kids and Salavea at DT are not Pro-Bowlers, but not awful either. Wynn and Daniels can platoon at DE. My biggest concern is how long it will take Landry to adjust and not be the weak link in the secondary, hopefully not past Week 8 (wishful thinking I'm afraid). Nothing we can do until tomorrow now.

The brown's FO looks like a bunch of geniuses. They got their cake and ate it too. We should try to trade up to get a D-lineman in the 2nd

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

the redskins dont play cover 2. landry will be play more to the line of scrimmage and taylor will play centerfield. one of his weaknesses is his hands hopefully he doesnt play like carlos rogers. our pressure is going to have to come the lb's and safeties so it might be the same defense from last year. i dont dislike the pick we took the best defense player on the board in opinion only time will tell.
