There's something in the Redskin Rulebook about drafting D-linemen early. We should all know that by now.

I don't get this at all. I felt the need was more along the O-line -- it's still good, but aging. It's the most important group of players on a football team, and this organization appears to be content with milking the current guys for all they're worth without preparing for their inevitable decline.

Or they really didn't like any of the O-linemen at this juncture.

The pick that really has me scratching my head is Fred Davis. I'm assuming that the thinking is both that now you can run two TE sets and have two pass receiving players as well as some insurance should Cooley go down for any time. Seems like a luxury pick with both Campbell and Groves on the board at that time. I know they liked Kelly, and I did as well, but also seems like a bit of a luxury pick ... after taking Thomas.

I would have thought they might have gone Campbell at 48 then even come back with Kelly ... The only thing I can say about skipping on Campbell is that his college coach is now coaching our line so maybe he knew some things that he didn't like. They've watched the tape, I haven't, but I'm kind of scratching my head here ... no help on defense?

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Well, WR has been a position of concern the past few seasons. Moss and ARE are solid- but we know that Moss is injury-prone. What's the best way to help Campbell immediately in his 20th offensive system in five years? Weapons.

According to scouts, these guys are not just tall receivers. They all had first round ability. And despite being the 3rd TE taken, BFD is the best TE in the draft (my homerism aside). Workout numbers didn't come up as well, but John Carlson? Give me a break...

Now we just have to find some major diamonds to shore up both lines.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Now that's a f'ing draft. I must give Danny boy and Vinny C some props. We got 1st round caliber players for second round picks. Seriously, the Skins have indemnified themselves from drafting a bust (all 3 can't be a bust). All offensive bases are covered except in the OL which I'm sure is going to get addressed in the later rounds. Now all we need is a saftly in the 3rd round or maybe pickup one up through free agency or trade.

Defensivly I am concerned but hopefully it'll be alright with a loaded offense.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

This is very much like when we got ARE and Lloyd...we needed just one good receiver, but we got two instead. Why does our team overreact? Portis goes down, and you give up the 4th for TJ Duckett....ugh. Well I hope we can find some hidden gems in the later rounds. I wonder how Moss and Cooley are feeling right now.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

the only thing I can figure is that the front office was nervous about their luck with picking wideouts in recent years, so they figure they increase their odds by taking two.

I wouldn't be surprised if this means the unthinkable for either Moss or Randle El.

Typically O-Linemen can be found in some of the later rounds - outside of LT - plus 8 guys went in the 1st and some more in the 2nd so I can see skipping on that position. Skipping on Campbell for Fred Davis especially is what surprises me.

Well it's a major shift from the early focus on defense in previoius years

Rumors of a Randle El trade by the way, don't know how legit the rumor is right now though. I think there are serious cap implications if we do

JC is certainly going to have weapons next year. The message I'm getting is clear, this offense is open for business.

Thrash and Mix are done but I think we will keep Mathis for KR and Depth
