We also now have the dubious distinction of having two of the highest-drafted safeties in NFL history playing on the same squad.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

I like the pick. Landry looks like a baller and with him and ST we won't get burned on the deep ball. We'll also have solid run support.

Landry was the best fit for the team and someone who will be able to contribute right away.

Not totally dissapointed in the pick because Landry will be a great addition, however something has to be done to shore up the D-line. Maybe it is their intention to devote the remainder of their attention towards that, and the O-line depth.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

I'm sold on it. The D-Line will be addressed I have faith in the FO. I know that history shows that I shouldn't but recent history has me. They have been very quiet and patient in their dealings this year. My only concern is who is going to line the secondary up ? Taylor, Landry, P.P ?

Well it's good that he can run fast, he's going to have to as opposing QBs are going to continue to have all day to throw to targets deep down field.

Well, I guess we're gonna find out if it is a dubious distinction or not. In the end, Landry offers more immediate help, and this has the stamp of GW written all over it. Like I said before, they probably asked him, "Secondary or DLine? Where do we need help at NOW?" His answer was straightforward, "Secondary."

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Deep down I knew they were going to do this.

Let's look at why our defense dropped last year:

1. No quality depth at CB when Springs got hurt
2. Arch was a major bust

GW has had successful defenses in the past with little or no pass rush from the front 4. As long as the secondary holds up he can generate rush from his creative blitz packages. His hands were tied last year with oursecondary play.

That is why we got Smoot in FA and draft Landry here....they figure if he did it once he can do it again.

Under this line of thinking there is no way we trade Springs now.

i don't like this reasoning (I think the game is won in the trenches) but I am not completely unhappy with this pick....we will see how it works out.
Plus they probably are thinking they can get a situational pass rush DE in the 5th and rotate him in on 3rd and longs.

As they pointed out, we don't really have saftey depth either. Vernon Fox or Preloeu comming off a major injury? Not a bad pick at all, really. Should be a great player.

But then again, if the secondary has improved enough to where the QB has nobody to throw to, then you'll see more coverage sacks. I'd love for us to get a good DE or two, but this is probably the best thing the Redskins had to work with.

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

Does anyone worry that we replaced an in-the-box safety (Arch) with an in-the-box safety (Landry)? Not comparing them really but wondering how Grilliams intends to tweak the defense to play to Landry's strength--a strength that Grilliams could not harness with Arch...

Re: The Official 2007 Draft Discussion Thread

I really don't like this pick. Don't get me wrong, Landry is a great athlete, but we REALLY needed D Line help. How can anyone think that our line is even average. We have OLD LB's minus MacIntosh, so the line will be in trouble. We have no second or 3rd round picks to get a possibly decent DE, or DL...now what?

I do!!!! I do think the coaches will be more inclined to MAKE this work, so in that respect, we have one of the best secondaries in the league...but again...our D LINE might be THE worst in all of football.
