Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

We need defensive linemen, and then, a receiver. We could make a signing with taylor's money.

Why do you keep mentioning Taylor's money? Where is this money you're talking about?

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

My Skins priorities in order:
1. Defensive End (Daniels still serviceable, but we need a younger DE to groom.)
2.O-line Depth (I think we have the starters in place, and 2 nice backups with Fabini and Heyer, but we need some youngblood to take over for our aging starters.)
3.CB (This could drop a few places if we can retain Springs, and Rogers is healthy, but right now this position is a concern.)
4.WR (I would like to add a playmaker here to form a formidable WR trio with Moss, and Randle El.)
5.Safety (I'm not sold on Reed Doughty as a starter.)
6.OLB (Need to add some depth at this position, and some insurance in case Rocky is not fully healthy.)
7.DT (If we can retain Griffin we're fine here, but if not we're going to need to add somebody.)

Are you saying Sam Hollenbach can not make it?

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

I'm going to leave it at defensive line help. The need on the DL is not to fill one position that is a problem, but rather to add a GREAT defensive player on the line who can both rush the passer and disrupt running plays. We don't exactly have a player on the line who is a drain on the team, but we lack depth and top end talent, so using a pick there is absolutely critical. We need the help at DT just as bad as we need it at DE, but if we can get help at one place, we can address the other position in the future.

Should have used a pick there this past year, but the events of this season have pretty much justified the Landry pick. Now we just have to make up for lost time.

I betcha Miami and Parcells won't keep the 1st pick. They need too much help. Not advocating this, but do you think Snyder would think about jumping up to take it? Dorsey or Long is a big need. Hmmmmm. Interesting... I wouldn't be shocked.

Gtripp - this is exactly what the Skins need and I am hoping that Calais Campbell of Miami falls to us in the first round. Campbell is 6'7" and 280 lbs and runs a 4.8 40. His stats are amazing for the 3 years he has been at the U of Miami and like I said before this guy reminds a lot of pro scouts of the next Ed "Too Tall" Jones. Plus I am sure he would fit right in with other fellow Miami alums on the team.

I think everyone is tending to forget that Philip Daniels is 34 years old which for a DE is not good. Daniels was descent against the run but as far as qb pressure goes he is not good. I can't remember how many times I would count how much time opposing qb's got due to a lack of pressure from Daniels.

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

At this point it's hard to gauge what the Skins need because it's hard to tell who is still going to be with the team. As of now DE, CB, G, T, LB, S, WR are all needs. Priority of needs all depends on if the skins can pull another rabbit out of the salary cap. Spings, Griffin, Washington, Portis, Daniels, injury prone Janson, and the useless one- Lloyd, all have big cap numbers. Hopefully I'm wrong, but when we get rid of Lloyd it's gonna hurt. And unless we are able to renegotiate some contracts I can see Springs, Griffin, Daniels, and or Portis released as well. For example, if Springs is released- CB becomes top priority. If Griffin is gone, DT etc... Because of Lloyd's cap hit, I don't see us very active in FA. SO, I guess I'm saying as of now DE looks like the biggest need and WR next, but until the cap gets sorted- who knows?

And, one more thing... Can anyone tell me why the skins are picking 21 instead of 20? Lost to TB head to head- Why is the rules for a draft order tie breaker different than the rules for a playoff tie breaker? Any insight?

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

I agree with the need to address the defensive line, but it seems that this draft is loaded with offensive linemen. Well I would say that we should draft an O-lineman or D-lineman with our first pick. In regards to the CB situation (if Spring leaves), should the Skins consider Asante Samuel? I don't think our CB situation could be solved with the draft, and should Spring were to leave, we'll be very thin at that position.

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

I think we have a resounding "line" result. either defensive or offensive. they both need to be addressed. The offensive line pickup will liekly not start at first, but honestly, the defensive pickup if drafted in the 1st three rounds could start early next year.
