Just thinking aloud, so we keep SM, ARE, Thomas, Kelly, & ______ (Mix or Thrash). Thrash might be gone.

Could the skins still trade one of our Rookie WR's later this spring? Hmmmmm.

I still think Mathis will be the 5th WR

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Well we've now got:

Moss
Randle El
Mix
Thrash
Mathis
Thomas
Kelly

Who are the odd men out? Will Zorn carry 5 or 6 WRs?

Thrash won't make the roster IMO. Mathis only will if he's spectacular in the return game in pre-season.

Anthony Mix will be 4th or 5th Thrash is good but too old he is hitting what 32 or 33?

Mathis won't make the roster, he's just there for some KR, PR competition.

Ali Highsmith was very productive in college, but he is pretty undersized, and he can make plays.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

I say B-
They did pretty well on value early...but missing a potential Dline starter is a problem.
I hope they address this in FA or something.

Getting a Punter and a TE still have me scratching my head...and why draft 2 safty's when there are needs elsewhere....it not like Reed Doughty is horrible....but our pass rush depth is quite weak...both at DT and DE.

Too bad Colt Brennan may have probs adjusting to the NFL...I didn't know that.
In reality....who really expects anyone after the 5th round to make an NFL roster?
We should judge based off of that....
PS...I love the Oline pickup...that is potentially more important that 2 of our 2nd round picks

Id' say Mathis or Mix. I see them keeping Thrash b/c he's a good special teams guy and a great character guy.

I heard he had a terrible combine & ran like a 4.8 or 4.9 that is why he wasn't drafted.

all 3 are special teamers....the advantage for Mix is that he is huge.
With all the new return talent.....we could potentially ditch them all and be fine.

Ask another question....if we cut them....who would be the first to be picked up....it would be Mathis IMO

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

I say we've done an overall good job. After EVERYONE (including me) complaining that the Redskins give up their draft picks away in trades for veterans, they've goen ahead and drafted 10 players...all of them which could be on the team or the practice squad come sept.

As many have said, we have free agency after the June 1st cuts and the undrafted free agents from which to pick depth at both lines. In regards to our O-line, I think our starting guys need to prove that they are worth keeping this year, otherwise in next year's draft we need to find flat out replacements. I think this year either through the draft or free agency we are looking for depth.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

i dont get why we took a TE when we have cooley and run a 1 TE system... I mean, at the time i was a bit mad, but we did get good value with the picks we made, even though i'm not super hot on the guys we got.

we passed merling, laws, campbell, scheuning, and caldwell at various points, but everyone we got is going to have 4 year deals at vet min at least, and we didn't reach at all. the problem with WRs is it may be years before we know if they're any good... at least kelly was drafted to a WCO though. in a vertical offense he'd look like mike williamd jr.

durant is a 4th round talent, horton is good depth (slow but productive, like doughty), shotgunning receiving targets might actually work out for us, since we have depth and only need one standout (like moss's first year) between the two new guys and moss.

i'm not sure the cbs are more than camp fodder or non starting depth and we didn't get anyone of note at OL/DL really...

look for rudolph hardie as the #1 UDFA for the skins... he has a real chance to get playing time if he lands here (went to hampton, we need DEs still, so it might work). highsmith is definitely worth getting in here too, and i think haynos might stop by, since he's really local.
