Leodis McKelvin would be great, but he'll probably go in the top-10 to New England to replace Asante Samuel.

Well the Redskins like aranging odd pre-draft visits. If you remember last year they brought in JaMarcus Russel for a pre-draft visit. And as you can see the Redskins have already brought in Chad Henne who should be there at 21 but will probably be gone at 52. And if anything they probably wouldn't use the 52nd selection on him.

Also heres a list of the local prospects that showed up for the Redskins pro-day. If I had to guess I'd say that the Skin's probably end up signing Lance ball as an UDFA. Was also glad to see Rudolph Hardie (DE Howard) and Joey Haynos (TE Maryland) on the list. At the same time looks like Andrew Crummey is still recovering from the East/West shrine game and for some reason Dre Moore (DT Maryland) didn't show up.
Local Prospects Get a Look

Also as far as Owen Schmitt is concerned, well I wonder if it's possible that they would prefer a more versitle FB in Jacob Hester, since Hester has the ability to make catches out of the backfield.

We could potentially get Bowman in the 4th (really comp 3rd) or 5th round. And if he recovers from his knee injury (probably won't happen until 2009) he will an absolute steal for us.

I keep on hearing that Bowman is a potential 1st round talent that will probably go in the 6th or 7th. If anything he seems like the only corner that could make an impact after the early third. However judging from the Redskins draft history I would count on them taking him in the 5th, especially if for some reason they don't take a CB in the second, which
right now seems to be their aim with the 52nd pick.

Another indicator of Flowers' early departure was on his Facebook profile in the days before the Orange Bowl.

It said under his marital status "In a Relationship," with "The Next Level."

I like him already:
Of course:

...Off-the-field concerns emerged when he posted a picture featuring a large amount of cash and a small baggie of what appears to be drugs along with a disturbing caption on his Facebook page

I neutral him now.

Re: Confirmed Pre-Draft Visits

Also they should take a look at Mike Jenkins or Trae Williams from South Florida. These two guys are going to be studs.

Re: Confirmed Pre-Draft Visits

Why don't we just keep this to official visits? I'm sure they are showing interest in a lot of people
