Re: We Should draft Jordy Nelson - Kansas State WR in the 3rd

I like Albert a lot too. I think he's a great fit for the skins for a no. of reasons, but especially for his versatility. He could start at guard immediately, but he's agile & big enough to play tackle & could be a long-term replacement for Jansen in a couple years.

No such thing as a safe pick with the 1st round.

He may have the tools, but he may also lack the awareness and playing exp as Kendall and Thomas.

He would be a good "solid" pick, but depth has never been something addressed in the first round, for as long as I can remember.

1st round is for holes and other things that your team immediately lacks (i.e. pass rush, cover corners, and big play-making wr). If we took Albert, we would be good for the future 2-3 years from now, but next year we'd still be missing an "impact" guy at the aforementioned positions

He's not a depth pick he would be starting next year. He is an absolute wrecking ball on the field... Never seen a guard with this many pancakes in the open field

doubt it. he's generally predicted in the 20-28 range. G and Cs in the 1st are the safest picks because very few are talented enough to be considered that early. it does tend to work out though (when you don't reach excessively like the bucs).

As a lifelong K-State fan I would love to see another guy make the trip from Manhattan to DC to join the Skins.

As I posted in another thread, at least he'll be a great locker room guy.

Look back at some old mock drafts and see how many picks ended up being correct. Usually it is about 3/32. We shall see, the draft is pretty unpredictable despite all the effort that all these experts put into coming up with mock drafts for our collective consumption. I would like so see some Virginia players on the Skins, I don't think they have any and, as I told my wife the other day (Tech grad), every player from UVa drafted in the first three rounds going back to 1996 has turned out to be a good to very good player (with the exception of Jon Harris ... but the Eagles totally reached on him anyway). I suspect the Skins will probably choose to address other needs (WR, CB, DE) in the first and wait on OL until the later rounds.

well nfldraftscout actually tracks their accuracy, but when they say they got 27/32 right, they mean right player, right spot OR right player, wrong team, OR right position, right spot, OR right player anywhere in the first round, so there's some padding there.

i'm almost convinced the dolphins take long (DE version) #1 based on thier FA, and ryan to the falcons seems to be a near lock too. long (OT) to chiefs seems right too. you could lock the top 8 if you figure out who actually wants mcfadden and which CB the patriots are willing to take if they can't trade down (jenkins, mcklevin, DRC).

Jake Long is a good bet to go to the Rams at #2. Chiefs would like to trade down. If they stay where they are Clady or Ellis are the likely options.

I feel you, but if we take an O-lineman we would be short an impact player at our more dire positions.

O-line is a safe place to draft, but we need help elsewhere, bad.

Can't go thru another season waiting until the 10th game to see one of our WR catch a TD pass.

We need a DE bad too.

O Line can wait and we can still get a quality player in the 3rd round or lower.

1st round = CB, DE, DT, WR

I love this, Redskin fans are slowly catching Albert fever. And it's coming on strong enough to be at maximum strength right around the end of April.

I think last years draft showed that the right rookies can be Pro Bowlers at tough positions if given the opportunity:

RB - Adrian Petersen (Pro Bowl)
OT - Joe Thomas (Pro Bowl)
WR - Dwayne Bowe
RB - Marshawn Lynch
S - Laron Landry
CB - Antonio Cromartie
LB - Patrick Willis
CB - Aaron Ross
WR -Anthony Gonzalez
OG - Tony Ugoh

I just think we need to not draft players like Rod Gardner, Taylor Jacobs, Andre Johnson, Michael Westbrook, Tom Carter, Desmond Howard or Bobby Wilson in the first or second rounds. I think we've done well recently in the 1st with Samuels, ST, and Landry but we have been burned repeatedly with WR's that high

I would love it if we picked Albert. In the short run, we'd be essentially getting four picks for the price of one since Albert could be a backup at both guard and tackle positions. In the longer run, we will need a new starting RT, RG, and LG and Albert would certainly fill one of those needs.

Yeah, who needs blocking?

We can find a receiver late just as easily as we can find a Guard late.
