My reception of Moss and Randle El?

Anyway, see post #161

-Randle El is a solid WR who is probably a bit in over his head trying to be a #2 WR. Particualarly when the #1 is Santana Moss

-I have the utmost respect for Caldwell, McCardell, and Thrash. Solid contributors who, for the most part, did their part. But two are gone. And the third probably needs to go soon. Plus we can't fall back on guys like that and the Jimmy Farris' of the world each time we have injuries to our wide receivers, which has happened plenty the last several years (Patten, Lloyd, ARE, Moss, Thrash all out for extended games)

-I'm sure Mix has plenty of potential. Let's see it

-Devin Thomas' upside is...unknown. I was stunned he fell to us.

-As is Malcolm Kelly's. Yet I think Kelly will have the more immediate impact. I think over the next several years, Moss and Thomas will be our star WRs. But they should be thanking Malcolm Kelly for making it easy for them. I was thrilled we got him when we got him.

-When I say no one to throw to, I mean if the starters are hurt.

-What I'd like to see this year. Moss 1, Kelly 2, ARE/Thomas 3 (and then we'll see about the rest)

-So I don't think my opinion has changed. I want to give Moss every opportunity to be the #1 WR. He's earned it. But he needs help and he needs to stay healthy.
Alright, so maybe the "if you don't have anyone to throw" to clause doesn't apply to the Redskins, then?

Just clarifying/playing devil's advocate.

I would also like to see Kelly and Moss start, but early on this year, it seems to be more likely to be Randle El and Moss.

Re: Overall Draft Grade for the Redskins

Ten biggest winners
1. Jason Campbell, quarterback, Washington -- He implored management to deliver big receivers in the draft, and it responded with tight end Fred Davis and Oklahoma's Malcolm Kelly. Nice. Better yet, the Redskins added Michigan State's Devin Thomas, who might be the best receiver out there.

National Football League - CBSSports.com

I can't say I'd ever heard Campbell make this request. But he definitely emerged a winner.

That still doesn't change the overall ineffectiveness of Moss and ARE when it comes to the red zone. It's great that we have Cooley but how much more dangerous could we be with multiple options in that area?

A little bit, but ultimately, none of these picks help the running game (well, Rinehart should, and to an extent, so does Davis), and that was the real problem in the red zone.

I think we will see a drastic change in our red zone production. While it might take these young pups time to develop I think Davis and Kelly especially are going to be huge red zone threats starting on day 1. That's literally what they do best with regards to skill set.

I think these moves do help Portis. With these bigger targets and multiple formations in the red zone, teams will no longer stack the box to stuff Portis. CP was the obvious target inside the 5. These additions should open things up for him across the field.

Does anyone remember previous discussion about Portis? He wants to be part of the passing game and I think he will have a better opportunity thanks to our picks.

Yes they're on the wrong side of 30 but we caught some bad breaks (literally) last year with Jansen and Thomas. I doubt we'll see another season where 2 of the 5 starters go down.

And I keep seeing people say we didn't address the line. Does Rinehart not count? Is Heyer not a good find from last year?
Jansen even when he was healthy was being pushed all over the place his better day's are behind him, Thomas will hopefully make a full recovery, but I don't see anything remotly special in Heyer, he looked to slow a foot, maybe he developes into a nice backup, but I don't see him as a starter. Maybe Alexander and Rhinhart become starters but IMO we needed a right tackle to groom behind Jansen it doesn't sound like that is the long term plan with Rhinehart.

I think a lot of that had to do with the playcalling and QB.

Re: Overall Draft Grade for the Redskins

I think if you have guys like Caldwell and McCardell playing key roles along with 2 starters who went half the season with no TDs, you've got some issues at WR.

B-

We did a brilliant job trading picks, we got a lot of great value out of our picks, we addressed some key needs, but we also ignored some key needs, and I'm not particularly impressed with the Colt Brennan pick. If we had addressed our D-line earlier I would not hesitate to give the Skins an A+.

Re: Overall Draft Grade for the Redskins

Our Wr's production was completely dictated by the play calling and QB. Just look at Patten... he sucked for us and now he is the #2 in N.O. and is doing alright for himself... Stats are not a good way to evaluate Wr's (ie: Moss was still the best in the league with the Raiders even though his stats weren't good)
