2006: Rocky (limp knees- got exposed as he can't stay healthy a full season), Golston (again, only 1 pick in the first 4 rounds)

2005: Rogers and Campbell (both first rounders, both good players though not great- Rogers could be shopped this summer. no 2,3 round picks)

2004: Cooley and Taylor: only 4 picks in the draft, taylor was a no brainer, cooley a VERY pleasant surprise.

2003: 3 draft picks, dockery was an excellent grab at 3rd, Jacobs was a bust in the 2nd.

2002: Ladell betts, Ramsey, Rock Cart. both betts and ramsey are capable backups, rock is a great special teams player but nothing more.

Nicks and Crabtree are two receivers that are going to receive a lot of attention this offseason. Instead of drafting three receivers last year we should of taken a lineman then went after one of these two in this years draft.

I posted this in a different thread:

Until this past offseason, Cerrato did not have a defined role with the team. The Redskins supposedly made offseason moves based on the decision of a committee comprised of Cerrato, Gibbs, Grilliams, and other coaches. Without knowing whether Cerrato pushed for or opposed signing free agents like Lloyd on the one hand and Fletcher on the other, it was pretty difficult if not impossible to give Cerrato a "grade." Yet, like a blindfolded kid taking a swing at a pinata, a lot of Redskins fans blamed Cerrato for all the bad personnel decisions (e.g., Lloyd, Duckett, etc.) and praised Gibbs for the good ones (e.g., Washington, Griffin, etc.).

The 2008 offseason was the first one since 2002 in which we knew Cerrato was running the show. Based on our 2008 season, it looks like Cerrato did a poor job with the lines and the trade for Jason Taylor. However, the book on guys like Thomas, Kelly, Davis, Tryon, and the rest of the draft class won't be fully written for a few years. So, I'll give Cerrato a C- for 2008, with the condition that the grade is subject to change based on how we look back on the 2008 draft in a few years.

This is one signing i didn't mind, we just didn't use him to the best of his abilities.

You'd give him a C- for 2008? Out of the entire draft, we have 1 player that starts...3 second round picks that don't play- (let alone crack a talentless- besides moss- WR corps) not acceptable at all.

Re: What should we draft?

it depends on whose available, and who we get in Free agency. If we pick up an OT like Gross, or Vernon Carey, then I say go for a D-lineman with our 1st pick, like BJ Raji, or Michael Johnson. If we pick up Hayneswoth or Rocky Bernard in FA, I say draft an OL like Euguene Monroe, or Duke Robinson. But 1st and foremost our OL, especially oppisite Samuels and Kendell is very weak right now, and our QB needs some protection. So weather it be in FA, or the draft, number 1 priority is O-line. Jansen and Thomas are washed up, and Heyer is a true backup.

Re: What should we draft?

Draft a WR's coach.
Draft a OC.
Draft for OL/DL
Draft a thought into possibly changing to a 3-4 since most of the successful teams are using it.

Re: What should we draft?

At this point, I would like to see the team trade down if possible to gain additional picks.

If it's possible to slide down from 14 to 20-22, we could pick up Duke Robinson (G -- Oklahoma). If we are able to get a 2nd out of the trade, I'd like to pick up Alex Mack (C -- Cal). Mack may start moving up boards, but as of now many sites project him as a 2nd round pick. With the third round pick, another O-lineman -- perhaps Phil Loadholt (OT -- Oklahoma).

I know it sounds crazy to draft so much O-Line at once, but this draft is deeper in O-Line than defensive line and we NEED the help.

A player I like at DT is Evander "Ziggy" Hood from Missouri. He is likely a 2nd or 3rd round pick. If we end up trading Carlos, we may be in a position to nab Hood.

LB can be handled through Free Agency.

Welcome to the board. I like your strategy. Good post.

This draft would make too much sense. Where are the kickers and receivers?

Hopefully on their way to the CFL.

Ziggy Hood is playing in the Alamo Bowl tonight on ESPN.

After doing some research on him I can see why you like him. I'm not sure he'll last long in the draft. Looks like an excellent prospect.

That 1 player happened to be drafted at the tail end of the draft and is talked about as a defensive player of the year candidate. That's hitting the jackpot.

As for the 3 2nd rounders, we all knew Malcolm Kelly was recovering from knee problems when we drafted him. We all knew Devin Thomas was a "project" who would take a year or two to get himself ready for action. Fred Davis is playing behind Chris Cooley but, admittedly, took longer than anticipated to get onto the field. We didn't draft those guys to produce lots of yardage in 2008. We drafted them to produce in the coming years.

Finally, the draft isn't a quick fix and you can't really judge it for several seasons. So, I would be reluctant to say that any draft class is "unacceptable" less than a year from the day on which they were drafted.
