Why does Ed Werder only seem to cover the Boys? ESPN doesn't seem to have a Redskins, Giants, or Eagles beat reporter.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Ive been saying for months that we trade down and get Kenny Phillips and Calais Campbell. I didnt think we would get a receiver too

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

In the second round, how much time between picks?

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

yet more Jlac, with his correction:

The Full Trade (We Were Given Wrong Info From the Team, Here's The Full Details Now)

Here's The Trade, as the team now reports it to us in the media room:

Skins get the 34th and 48th and 103 pick
Skins trade 21 overall, 84 overall (third round), and 154 (5th round)

So they had two third and a fifth round pick originally, and now have the following picks.

34, 48 and 51 in the second round

96 in the third round

103 in the 4th round

they dont have a 5th round pick now

they have 1 sixth round pick and 3 in the 7th round (two comp picks there)

Sorry for the confusion. Skins still end up right now with 9 overall picks.

It's obviously not the fleecing that was first announced here in the media room, not close, but still a nice deal.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

S+C, Don't you think Kenny Phillips is going to go to the Giants at #31?

I'm thinking we get a DE (Calais Campbell) and Jordy Nelson in the 2nd round...

Merling, Jackson, Balmer, Laws all available. Great value at # 34 for all but Laws.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Wow. The way things are going, we'll have three top 100 prospects. With other teams 'reaching' for guys not so well known, we could end up with at lest two. Come on Kentwan Balmer and Jordy Nelson!

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Are we going to go the whole first round without a WR chosen? Has that ever happened before?

thats what people are saying. id love to have him. the only reason i want him to go ahead of us is to keep the canes steak of first round pick for x number of years in a row, 9 i think. or this will be 9. but hes going to be a stud, top 10 in the league easily. (which sucks to cmpare him to taylor who would have been top 5 all time....)

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Merling should get to us. GB, NYG don't need DE. Merling doesn't fit MIA 3-4 and Rams already took Chris Long.
