Re: Time To Be A GM: Your 1st Round Pick Is...

I liked the Talib bandwagon better when I was the only person on it here.

So I will allow others to drive it now and make a push for-no, not Antoine Cason (though I do like him)-Reggie Smith out of Oklahoma

Smith played both strong safety and cornerback in college. I believe he's projected as a CB in the NFL but I think he's got the versatility to do both in the pros.

So as of February 16th, I'll say with the 21st pick the Redskins select Reggie Smith

Re: Time To Be A GM: Your 1st Round Pick Is...

First choice would be best player available with that said at the 21st spot in the 1st round (if we keep the pick), Phillip Merling DE, we need another speed rushing end to compliment AC and bring a dual threat to the opposing QB. Second choice would be Talib, we need to address the corner position this might be the perfect time with CR not ready to go at the start of the season and Springs old and running out of time in DC and his status still seems uncertain with team. (Yea, I know the team says they want to keep him, but what else would they say, could be trade time)

Finally, if both those guys are already picked. I would still go with best available, but maybe Calais Campbell DE or Malcolm Kelly WR.

Re: Time To Be A GM: Your 1st Round Pick Is...

My Pick: Sam Baker Tackle from USC. We need a good backup or a replacement for Jansen.

They will have two game against Javon Kearse, Strahan and Demarcus Ware. We need people who can hold their own.

What I think is going to happen:
Desean Jackson is going to slide to the 21st pick and DS is going to draft him.
Snyder loves players that sell jerseys. Jackson is an exciting player and will have one of the top 3 most popular rookie jerseys.

He's going to drop on most draft boards because he is going to show up to the combine weighing 160LBS and teams are going to compare him to Ted Ginn Jr and his performance as a rookie.
Also, Teams are going to be afraid that he won't be able to get off the line or go over the middle.

With the 21st pick, The redskins select Desean Jackson.

Re: Time To Be A GM: Your 1st Round Pick Is...

Malcolm Kelly if he's there, Limas Sweed or Aqib Talib if not. We need a big time CB and/or WR, and OL depth.

Re: Time To Be A GM: Your 1st Round Pick Is...

my pick depending on who's available.
1.D.Rodgers-Cromartie
2.Aquib Taliq
3.Tracy Porter
4.Antoine Cason

*defintiely should pick CB 1st rd. There will be a few Excellent DE available for us in rd.2 that wouldn't really be worth that 1st pick EX.Lawrence Jackson.I am really starting to like Tracy Porter now but ultimately my favorite pick I think would be Aquib Taliq.DMC is Awesome I just don't think he'll be there at #21.

"With the 21st pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, The Washington Redskins select
Malcolm Kelly, WR Oklahoma".

The Redskins need a receiver with size to compliment Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El and at 6-4 and 219 lbs, Malcolm Kelly certainly fits that bill. This could just as easily be a guy like Calais Campbell too.

That type of thinking is a little backwards and a reason the Redskins are either over the cap every year or have very few draft picks.

First, needs are established by position.
Then, see if those needs can be addressed in the DRAFT FIRST.

If you need a big possession WR and the draft is deep in that position, draft a guy. Stay away from trades and high price free agents that wreck the cap. It is cheaper to sign rookies than FA's. Plus you retain draft compensation rights after the third season. And you don't have to mortgage your future in his third year, the tender amounts are pre-set by the league so no negotiating is involved. It is cheaper and cap friendly.

If needs cannot be addressed in the draft then you look at Free Agency.

If not available in Free Agency, then look to trade.

Why do you think they hold the scouting combine BEFORE the free agency signing period begins?


P.S. I don't think Jordy Nelson drops to the 3rd round, he'll go in the second.

Thomas DeCoud (Cal - S).
I think Doughty is some hot garbage. And we compete in the NFC EAST...

Rnd 2

Chis Williams (OT - Vandy) or Sam Baker (OT - USC)
I'm tired of losing either Samuels or Jansen for the whole year (past 3 years). We need a pedigree O-Lineman...

Rnd 3

Jordy Nelson (WR - KSU)
Assuming we dont get Berrian or Ocho Cinco... And we actually HAVE this pick. I also say if we get Nelson, trade Randle El and let Mix and Nelson round out the top 3 receivers... He also TORCHED Auburn AND #1 CB Talib.

Rnd 5

Chevis Jackson (DB - LSU) * If taken Simeon Castille (DB - Alabama)
Both big pedigree CBs. SEC. Nuff said.

Rnd 6

Dennis Dixon (QB - Oregon)
If he's still on the board... or Xavier Lee (QB - FSU)

Rnd 7

Kendall Langford (DE/DT - Hampton)
Raw talent. And if he's here.

This is only your 4th post, and already you impress with a full draft card!

Major props!


I've preferred a DE/DT in the 1st round for the past eleven years. I was almost ready to change up to Talib after viewing the practices for the N/S College Senior Bowl.

I'll stick with the BPA at DE, but LDS will probably not look at my preference (again!).

The 184 Mock Drafts in HailRedskins.com list C. Campbell in quite a few, but I don't know much about any player until post-combine, and just prior to NFL Draft day. Amazingly, the Washpost can call it 75-85% accurate one day before the 1st round.

So, C. Campbell is my best guess.

I don't know about this 1st rounder son. The only Safety I would consider at #21 is Kenny Phillips from U of Miami, and I doubt he falls to us.

That being said, I think our first pick does need to be in the defensive backfield ( e.g. - Cornerback).

Jordy Nelson is the sleeper of all sleepers in this draft!!!

HE has the size, quickness, toughness, hands, and break away ability that we would look for at the WR position.

Sorry, to all of the TAlib Fans, but here is a clip of Talib getting baked.
YouTube - Jordy Nelson destroys Aqib Talib

Skins4Life is right, he may not make it past the 2nd round, so I think we would have to choose between Jordy Nelson and Devin Thomas, which is not an easy choice.

What's the point of the video clip? So he's not perfect, so what? I'm sure Jordy Nelson has dropped a pass before.

I guess I'm just trying to figure out if you are saying Talib is no good, and basing it on this clip

Talib is good. Im not denying that, but I dont think he is worth 1st round consideration. IMO, only Mike Walker, Leodis McKelvin, and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are the only CB's worth a look at for us at #21 overall.

And, yes, Jordy Nelson has dropped as pass before, but I would think that for someone projected a first round pick, that Talib wouldnt have looked that bad against someone who is project in the 2nd-3rd rounds.

Against Talib and Kansas, Jordy Nelson had 10 catches, 137 yards, and a touchdown of 68 yards that you saw in the clip. If he get cooked like that by a college player, then my only question is what is gonna happen against TO, Kevin Curtis, and PLax? My guess, is the same thing just a little more time in the oven when Talib gets baked...lol

Todd McShay said if Talib has a good combine he'll be a top 10 pick. Everyone has a bad game every now and then. Overall body of work, Talib is a 1st rounder no doubt. I haven't seen a mock draft that doesn't have him in the top 32.

Re: Time To Be A GM: Your 1st Round Pick Is...

I HAVE GOT THE PICK FOR US!!

The best value at #21 is Brandon Albert OG from Virginia. I just looked at some footage on him @ NFL.com and he is a MONSTER. He pulls, finishes, awesome at the 2nd (and 3rd) level, has the size and athletesism to play tackle in a pinch, run blocks like Tre Johnson, pass blocking is solid. You need to check this guy out!!

I say we get Jared Allen if FA and draft this beast in the 1st rnd! Then grab a WR or CB in the 2nd.

NFL.com - Official Site of the National Football League

It is the vid titled Long On Talent where Maylock breaks down the top OL prospects.
