Re: too many draft needs!

Strong Safety is a rather easy position to fill if you ask me. Remember Landry was actually a Free Safety at LSU, and only played strong cause we had taylor.

I see the Redskins doing this:

1.) Keeping all of their picks and using them and letting the scouting department do their job and depending on them. The scouting department for the Redskins has had some descent success with Sean Taylor, Landry, Cooley as well as low level picks/undrafted free agents like Montgomery, Reed Doughty, Heyer and Lorenzo Alexander. Lets hope Synder can see this and learn that winning the offseason free agent championship is worthless.

2.) Picking up low-mid level free agents to fill the gaps at the positions of need. Often these low-mid level pickups in free agency really make or break your season. Just look at how important Randall Godfrey was to the team last season as an example.

3.) Possibly making one big name free agent pickup, but only if it is a unrestricted pickup and not costing them any picks. The team needs to get the mentaility of striving to get younger and look down the road a little in the range of 3-5 years. You don't want to be a team mostly composed of aging vets and few young players, because all the sudden those aging vets will begin to lose their ability and performance drops.

Folks - don't worry - the Skins are not going to be going on a rampant spending splurge when they went out and got Deion and Bruce Smith and the like - they still got to get down $16 million to comply with this years cap and they already have a lot of vets in place, so massive turnover is very unlikely.

So why is there such a demand to give up this Draft for Ocho Cinco?

There goes this analytical theory!

My take is Chad Johnson is more rumor than reality, so I would say my take has a little more substance than the "demand" that you are referring to

From the Washington Times today:

Notes The Redskins source downplayed rumors about the team's interest in trading for unhappy Cincinnati Bengals wideout Chad Johnson, though he didn't rule out the possibility. The source also believes cornerback Shawn Springs, who turns 33 next month, will stay despite his high $7.5 million salary cap number for 2008.

Position is Smith's if he wants it*-*-*The Washington Times, America's Newspaper
