I saw a story about him on ESPN and it was just an amazing unbelievable touching story. This is the the kind of guy that you root for. I hope we draft him.

Better Oher than Sanchez.

Donkey...If true, imagine what he could do with the full force and benefit of an NFL team putting every possible resource it could into helping him learn a play book. He dominated in college and didn't know the play book? SHoot I'll take five of him.

Nice angle... the way I see it Oher didn't have any meaningful education till he was about a junior in HS. Yeah he's gonna be a bit behind still in the brains department but the book is true he's shown he can learn when he decides to.

Re: Michael Oher Leads when munching 168 Mocks

I am actually a little scared of Oher now. If the guy essentially had no social skills and basically no education until like 5 years ago I am concerned the guy might be a nut case due to his "upbringing". Once thrown into the petri dish that is the NFL who knows where the hell he heads mentally. On the other hand he may be moldable so who knows.

TO is the perfect example. By most accounts he was a humble down to earth guy early in his career. Now look at him. And he purportedly had a weird upbringing.

Re: Michael Oher Leads when munching 168 Mocks

at this point in the draft discussions, rumors are rampant in order to throw off teams from their focus on particular players. The Redskins have several needs, but should look to pick up a backup LB in free agency, Take the best OT avialable at the 13th pick. Should no elite OT be available, take Center Mack then trade remaining lower round picks for a early 2nd rounder to pick up Britton or Loadholt at the Tackle slot. This would give us the best foundation for the 2009 season. We don't need more defense. Our defense was in the top tiers last year without the acquisition of Haynesworth, Wynn, Hall, etc. We will be fine on Defense. Better protect our QB if we are going to make the playoffs this year. If we faulter, it will be our young WR corp not stepping up again this year.

O-Lineman? I'll take him. We're to the point where we I don't care WHO they draft as long as he'll be on the O-line.

So you want Wynn as you starting LDE, and Blades at the starting OLB? Wynn is 35 and out of gas, and Blades is as more suited for MLB and is a liability in pass coverage, so I think we need "more" defense.

Yeah, we definately need more talent on D. Don't really care where it comes from, because pass rushing talent is abundant in this league, but we need to get our hands on it.
