Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

Cap on Lloyd is 4,238,000 for 08

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 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.

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

OFFENSIVE LINE! We really tend to fall apart when we lose a starter. While GW seems to keep things together when we are short on the defensive side of the ball. We also really need a running back.....portis looks slower every year, and betts just isnt a starter in my opinion. If we are gonna play "redskins football" we must address o-line and RB.

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

There are alot of running backs out there and the most suited for "Redskins Football" so to speak would have to be Rashard Mendenhall out of Illinois, but seriously Wide Reciever is a more pressing issue than the running back position is.

Free Agent RB Barber with Dallas would get that 3rd and 1

Calaisis Campbell out of miami will help Carter big time

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

i'm not up on campbell... i think harvey is a much better player, or kenny for miami might make a difference immediately too.

ghoulston is the crazy beast of the draft. too bad we can't get him.

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

Did you guys know that we have a 6'5 235 pound wideout who runs a 4.51 40...... And he never got a single rep on offense. But McCardell came on the team and played on day 1. Maybe this new coach might be a benefit in the fact that there'll probably be open competition for almost every position. ARE could be like Wes Welker in the slot.

I think the Skins biggest need is WR if they dont get one in FA but at the same time the one player I would love for the Redskins to get is Chris Long. The kid has a non stop motor and makes countless plays in every game despite countless double teams. HTTR.

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

Since Spagnolo is going to be our next head coach we need to get DE like he had in New York.

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

any type of line help. on both sides of the ball. and if someone brings up size in a wide out again, there should be a 3 month ban. since when CANT Santana get deep anymore?
