I wouldn't call it that but you're still right.

Well, they still counted him towards the 11 people we were allowed on the field at once, but Zorn should have appealed that ruling.

When we played on the road, the playing surface was as much a factor as he was.

lol... thanks for the update. I kinds liked Betts too but the knee injury last year, when we wasn't getting many carries in the first place, has me wondering. I tend to think we take a RB in the 5th or 6th round this year.

Agreed, and the other pick will be a DE of some sort.

I basically started to think we'd approach the draft this way by getting the best OT FA in Willis, load up on what DE talent we can, grab the damn punter everyone wants, and then we'd be well set to take Rey. Maybe it still happens this way i guess.

I ice cream is really good you guys... banana split
Oh I see. Willis at RT? Ok that's cool. Orakpo and E Brown are going to the best DEs we can get in the draft. Rey is good. But there are a lot of guys that are good but not at his caliber at 13.

To be honest I'd rather have Orakpo because he gives us flexibility to run different packages at DE and OLB. Add Haynesworth moving around to DE every once in awhile and that's some scary sh*t.

For me I'd rather trade down to get Mack and then Mathews, Britton, or Loadholt. I highly doubt Mathews or Britton would be available but Loadholt might be. Even if we do get Willis I still think our O-line needs some youth. Mack, Britton, or Loadholt would be good youth infections for the future.

If A.Smith is there get him. There are a lot of guys who have not had good showings in the past that have pulled through. Did you see the pic of Brady at the combine? I wouldn't draft him for a soccer team. I wonder what all of the supermodels he knocked up were thinking? Oh yeah, Cha-ching $$$$

Just a week ago, I wanted to pass on Orakpo because he was too similar to Andre Carter.

Now I look at our DE situation, and see zero established depth, so Orakpo looks pretty nice if available.

They've got something cooking. They can't let Taylor and Evans go and not have people they're looking at to replace them. Jackson, Montgomery, Golston, Wilson? Those guys are depth.
No, they must have some guys they're looking at getting in the draft. It has to be there because there isn't anyone else in FA that's better than Evans.

9. Green Bay

And with only four of them to go around, it's unlikely that any get past GB, or even Jacksonville for that matter.

Which means GB might go with Orakpo instead. And then Buffalo and Denver need linebackers...you get my drift.
Oakland might take Crabtree, Jags like Harvin a lot, and Green Bay loves Jenkins

Move the Redskins to DC. Then get Suggs.
How about 1 game in Texas, 1 in Pa, and 1 in New York?
(course, baltimore probably plays, houston, pitt, and the jets )

Re: Munching the Mocks: Andre Smith now leads for Redskins

As much as we need OL this guy is a trap. He fought with Alabama Coach Nick Saban over doing work to prepare for the draft in the spring or playing in the Sugar Bowl vs. Utah. Ultimately, he was benched for this behavior. Then, this past month at the combine, he just left without telling anyone where he was. This guy has serious character issues. I would go for a guy like Michael Oher everyday over Andre Smith

Re: Munching the Mocks: Andre Smith now leads for Redskins

personally I am hoping the skill players they project are picked where they are slotted..ahead of the thirteenth pick..I'd hate to see both Crabtree and one of the QBs freefall..

because if Rey Maualuga is there..isn't he the best fit?..he opens up options.
and they drafted offense last year

I like this over a drafting a DL and the risky roll of the dice a rookie D-lineman really is.. ..so few actually pan out..

I wonder if Dockery's brother Cederic (I think)will be looked at?..some mock drafts don't even have him drafted..but he is interesting..and from a winning College background..at Texas..and has decent size

No. The release fee is $ 2.775M this year. After the season we can release him with a cap savings of $ 2.288M. The last thing we want to do is restructure Jansen.
