I think our draft will be defined by the 2nd day players; namely the quality and holes that the next 2 picks fill.
As opposed to the opinions of the armchair GM fans?

So far so good. Now if we can find a few gems in the 2nd day, and no more WR's.....that would be great. I'm hoping for a OL, DB, DE, DT, LB and QB in day two and hope half or better of these picks turn into players down the road.

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis From Around the Interwebs

How quickly we forget how our inept our offense was last year. All the crying last year, if we had a big Red Zone target for J.C., if only Moss could stay healthy, Cooley needs some help and so on....boy, memories sure are short around here.

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis From Around the Interwebs

The Skins are giving every chance for JC to become a pro bowler...unlike other QB prospects we have had. Yes I like the Draft picks but I was Surprised we did not get a DE but the TE pick allows us to line up in two TE sets and go down the field or run.

I think there is no need to question our moves. We have done well for ourselves! Now that being said if the second day of drafting we select more WR's then I would worry.

I would like to see us pick up Jason Taylor who would be available for a 3rd or 4th pick as was said by the experts. He could play for a couple of years and give us time to get a young DE to learn from the past Defensive MVP!

And didn't we go half way through last season with no TDs for our WRs?

It's funny, at the end of last season a lot of people agreed we needed a serious upgrade at the WR spot and more weapons for JC in general. Moss hasn't done much since 2005 and ARE while solid doesn't exactly scare anyone on a consistent basis. Fast forward to this weekend and it seems that most people have forgotten about how mediocre our WRs were. For some strange reason people have convinced themselves the defense was the problem last year.

I honestly think our offense is going to run a lot better now with a bigger target at WR. I also think Devin Thomas is going to help Randle El be more of a factor on punt returns and let him get a breather every once in a while. A luxury ARE didn't have last year.

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis From Around the Interwebs

We're not going to be able to tell if this is a good draft until a year or two down the line. Everything else is just speculation.

Their probably fixated on splash but you have to admit that JC held on to the ball to long. Your right we had pit falls on the line but every team does if you expect it to block for more then 7 sec. We needed some threats. Big tall threats. Randel El and Thrash are not real threats. Moss is our only player besides Cooley teams worry about in the WR corpse. So they stacked the line (again and again) challenging us to throw to who? Double Moss and we were screwed.

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis From Around the Interwebs

There are some people who need to be called down from the ledge here. This isn't going to be our last draft for life. I'm sure there plans to implement these guys into our offense. Also free agency and the draft take place every year. We can always use our draft next year to shore up the O-line.

I can't complain with how the draft turned out. I'm pleased with the picks. Sounds like we got some great new talents

First rule of being a Skins fan, some people are never happy no matter what. It's best to just ignore them.
