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.
The WCO typically uses a lot of 2 TE sets.

story, as I understand it, is that he felt pressured to run injured and ran a 5.1 and a 4.9 at the combine, but then ran a couple of 4.6s on his pro day.

There's no way he's a top lb in the sec while running a 5.1... ya know what I mean? And as a UFA there's nothing but upside bringing in a guy like that who has everything to prove.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

One day Colt will win us a super bowl with Malcom Kelly and Devin Thomas as the starting WRs, and this draft will go down as one of the best of all time. Don't forget Mark Rypen was a 6th rounder too

Mathis is a goner. It's going to come down to Mix and Thrash. I'd say Thrash has the edge cause he can do more.

If it comes down to Mix and Thrash I wouldn't be surprised at all if Thrash is the one who gets the boot.

Is Mix tradeable at all?

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

jacksonville got 2 grade 1 pass rushers, miami got great talent (henne, merling, long - all three are long term starters at the 3 hardest positions to fill... i mean, wow). baltimore had 4 great picks after blowing it hard with flacco... GB did well, KC didn't get great value, but they got good players.

philly did well again... oakland not so much (great pick of chaz schilens in the 7th, but his career will probably die there). pitt took a bunch of players they plan to play immediately (again), and san diego got a steal on K brandon couto at pick 235 (don't they still have kaeding though?)

stl got long (DE) and great value with schuening in the 6th... they also grabbed vobora (LB) in the 7th (148 tackles last year) which is a steal. tampa bay reached a lot, but dre moore (DT) was a good pickup in the 4th (kinda wish we took him instead).


besides hardy (DE), haynos (TE), and highsmith (LB), i'd like to see giguere (LB) as a redskin too... he might go back to college though (canadian and does not have an agent).

out of 10 picks, i like 8 (even though i would have done things a bit differently). rob jackson and justin tryon don't really do much for me.

Could you imagine the outcry here if we had traded a 1st, 2 3rd, and a 4th to move up to get Harvey?

Teams deal way to record 33 trades on draft weekend

NFL decision-makers were a finicky lot at the NFL draft, making a record 33 trades on Saturday and Sunday, surpassing the previous record of 28 from the 2004 draft.

Thrash, Mix/Mathis, or a trade for ARE most likely to go. No?
