Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

I can understand why you like Robiskie. He's a great route runner and has good size. Besides that, his dad use to coach for us. He should have a good career in this league for someone but after last years draft I doubt we would take a receiver as high as he'll probably go.

Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

I, unfortunately, have no idea who will be available at no. 13. I would have to think one of the big four OTs might be there.

Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

Since we cannot trade down and no FA

I would draft
1st - Any of big 4 OTs, probably Michael Oher (OT) if gone then Eben Britton (OT), I would love Alex Mack (C) but too high @ 13.
3rd - Jonathan Luigs (C) or Fenuki Tupou (G)
5th - Zach Follet (OLB)
7th - RB or DL

Mack or Raji. Inside beef sounds nice.

We've got plenty of options, though. Brown or Oher sound good too. Would like to see us trade down a bit.

5th Round - Vance Walker - DT - Georgia Tech (collapses the pocket, stops the run, and plays with a high motor. However he lacks size and instincts)
6th Round - Zach Follet - LB - Cal (Not sure if he'll last this long but hey last year we thought Erin Henderson was going to be a 2nd or 3rd round pick and right now Follet is graded as a fringe 5th round pick)

My Nightmare Draft


1st Round - Percy Harvin - RB/WR - Florida ("He was easily the best player on our board and when you draft for need you get in trouble")
2nd Round - Alphonso Smith - CB - Wake Forest ("Well we thought trading next years 2nd and 3rd along with Carlos Rogers, as well as a fifth rounder next year was a good idea because we knew that this guy was high on our board. Plus this year we're not going to make the character mistake we made with Thomas and Davis last year")
3rd Round - Darry Beckwith - ILB - LSU ("Well we saw how well our division rival Dallas did with Brady James and Beck was definitely the best player on our board so we went for it")
5th Round - Maurice Wells - RB - Ohio State ("We wanted a big play threat at RB and we felt like Maurice was it. I mean sure most scouts had him going undrafted but he stuck out on our board like a sore thumb.")
6th Round - Grahm Harrell - QB - Texas Tech (" Did you see how many yards he threw for last year? Pair him with Colt and our fanbase will be thrown into civil war over who are 2nd string QB should be. We're excited about what Jim can do with him.")

Follow up comments from Vinny:
"We tried to trade back up into the first to get Brian Cushing but we couldn't find anyone who wanted Santana Moss, Jon Jansen, Cornelius Griffin, Shawn Springs, Marcus Washington, and Carlos Rogers in exchange for a first round pick."

"We would have gone O-Line but no one really stood out on our board, besides this wasn't a good year for O-lineman."

"Hey at least I didn't take any recievers.....or did I?"

"Percy Harvin is going to be the next Reggie Bush."

"I'm really excited about what the other Well's brings to the table.

"I tried to trade back but for some reason the phone line went dead."
Okay guys, don't fall in love with Hermann Johnson's 6'7" 382 size. You may not have seen the Senior bowl practice where he was thoroughly dominated by everyone he faced. But this is why he has plummeted from a possible 1st day pick to a probable 4th rounder. He looked very slow and was overpowered by late round talent at the senior bowl. If you like him watch the combine and see what the scouts say... Think George Muresan with shoulder pads..

Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

I'll caveat my first round pick with this; if the big 4 OTs and Raji are gone, I'm trading down and looking to pick up Mack. But since that can't happen in this thread....

1st: Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss
3rd: Alex Magee, DT, Purdue - Projects as a 3-tech and can play end
5th: A.Q. Shipley, C, Penn State - Rimington Trophy winner
if Shipley is not available, then Jason Williams, OLB, Western Illinois - 6'1 241, 4.59 40 time
6th: if Shipley is not taken in the 5th then Ray Feinga, G, BYU. if Shipley is taken then Gartrell Johnson, RB, Colorado St.

Thought I'd heard that had served as a wake-up call to him and he's really been working hard the last month to improve his agility and speed

Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

13th overall - 1 of the 3 top tackles not named Oher; DT raji; LB malangua; DE Orakpo.

obviously a tackle would be great but i am not sold on Oher at 13 when we could probaly get similar talent later in the 1st. i am warming up to the idea of rey malangua (sp?) as he could be a high intensity player which i think we need; raji would be great too . .orakpo is last on my list.

either way i like sitting in the 13 position, lots of attractive talent available.

go skins!!

Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

I didn't know where to put this or know if it has been posted. Here's how Matt Moseley should've phrase this:

Redskins
Primary concern: Offensive Line
Secondary concern: Pass rush/LB corps

Hot Button: NFC East - NFC East - ESPN

From what I saw and heard after the practice he was a disaster, he may be working hard now but he has a ways to go. He's VERY weak for a man his size. Guards are usually some of the strongest players on the team. My guess is he has trouble beating LBs in reps lifting 225 at the combine.
He's also very tall for a Guard which means he'll have trouble gaining leverage vs most tackles in this league. I would pass on him

Don't get me wrong. I'm not really a fan and don't want to draft him, just that I'd heard he's working hard to improve.

You been watching the CFB melts yet?

Ten Players to Watch At the NFL Scouting Combine

The Redskins have tipped their hand on Redskins.com. I hope the link works.

You need to read the whole write up on each player, however, since we will not actually draft a guy like Sanchez.

Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

Michael Oher LOT VA
Eugene Monroe LOT Miss

Although I know something about Oher being out of VA. and yes solid Left Tackle, but both these kids are LOT's. Don't think any of these two guys are gonna bump CS outta his job, as he's the best we have up front.

We need to shore up/UPGRADE the front five now, FA, Draft a now starter, whatever it takes. This will be of key importance to our success this season IMO.
