Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Nice pick from everything I've heard about him. Only true #1 in the draft was how I've heard him described by people who know. Now we have 2 more picks this round. I thought Devin Thomas might be the guy at #21. I like it. Props to the FO.

Well, Mel loves it.

Good value at this pick. He's got the size.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

I really like Thomas at this pick. Good value for a guy a lot of folks thought would go at #11 overall.

As for the next pick, yes, I think it'll be Campbell.

Wow, Devin Thomas in the second round. Great size and speed, excellent pick. He will definitely help out the redskins immediately.

I'd like to see Dan Connor with one of our two remaining picks in this round.

I was opposed to taking a wideout @ 21, but getting Thomas @ 34 is great value. GTripp is going to poop himself though.

Agreed well played by the FO. I think this will turn out to be a good draft overall. I wonder how the Snyderatto bashers will spin it.

Thomas is great after the catch and should be a natural for the WCO.

He will for sure. But this is a good pick at #34. He's big and familiar with the WCO. I don't buy the "one year wonder" argument.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

I guess we got good value for Devin Thomas but I'd rather have taken someone like James Hardy or Jordy Nelson. I just don't feel comfortable that he had one good season, he had 6 receptions two years ago. Jordy Nelson just went to Green Bay.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Trade down? Are you kidding me? The draft is about quality not quantity. We were stupid for giving up #21. WE get two mid second round picks in a lame draft year? Unless we go for a WR, we are not going to get quality people this draft. Although we might be able to still land a decent LB, CB, or S that will make a positive impact on us. Anyone picked up after round 3-4 will just be a waste of space or practice squad fodder for a season or two then released. At #21 we still could have landed a decent D linemen or guaranteed getting the best WR or S in the draft. I know it is a relatively thin year for talent, but you still have to go for top quality. More picks when the pickings are slim doesn't help you.
