Maybe its just me but I dont see Santana Moss as a public speaker either, but I guarantee he isnt stupid

Re: Michael Oher remains the leader for the Redskins

I'm not sold on Oher. I think we'd be taking a risk by drafting him at 13. We can trade down in the late teens or early 20's and probably get him. If A. Smith is on the board I take him, given that he's only allowed 2 sacks his whole collegiate career and he has more upside. Smith would learn from one of the best LT's in Samuels about staying in shape, and conditioning your body.

I hear you. Though I remain skeptical that JC is ultimately the guy, I'd hate to see us take Sanchez -- he certainly won't play, and if Zorn is gone after year two then the next coach is stuck with an inherited QB that he didn't select.

The ONLY way I could see taking Sanchez (and I still wouldn't like it) is if the Redskins truly are done with Campbell and he is traded for a 1st or 2nd round draft pick. Even then, they'd basically have to give Sanchez the starting job and the 2009 season is over before it starts.

So if I'm calling the shots, trade down if possible, or pick up Maualuga or any of the offensive tackles at #13. And above all, you stick with Jason Campbell.

True, but I think it depends on what team takes him. If we take him, I think he'll be influenced by guys like Griff and Samuels, and they won't let him make mistakes. You're right Smith has the biggest bust potential but he also can be the greatest reward player in the right situation, and I think he'd make a great fit for us.

There are guys at Alabama with good work ethics but Smith didn't seem to learn much from them.

No, honestly, I think we should try to move that 3rd rounder up to the second, IF someone like Alex Mack or Duke slid to where we could reasonably pull it off without having to give up too much. We need to figure out a way to get two starters out of this draft.

Re: Michael Oher remains the leader for the Redskins

I would love for the Skins to take an Oher or Smith but I am preparing myself for Sanchez (grrrrr).

Do you remember when the Danny made Mike Nolan change the defense because he doesn't "like vanilla"? What a horror. Anyhow, we have no vanilla ice cream to trade.

The story about the Danny and ice cream can be found in many links, including:

Re: Michael Oher remains the leader for the Redskins

ESPN is reporting that the JAGS are close to signing Holt. I wonder how that will shake things up as far as tackles go in the upcoming draft. JAX signed William "Don't call me Tra" Thomas, which was a good signing in my opinion but could probably use another tackle. I think most of the experts had them picking a WR (maclin) and signing holt would give them some flexibility to use their top pick to address other needs.

Excellent question. Don't forget, though, that the Jags have no warm bodies at wideout. They could pick up Holt and still draft a WR.

Ya, with Matt Jones and Reggie Williams deciding to throw their NFL careers away, Jags are left with Troy Williamson and Dennis Northcut as their starting wideouts. Even with the signing of Holt, I look for them to draft another WR as well.

Re: Michael Oher remains the leader for the Redskins

I won't be pleased if we draft Oher but I don't think we're going to have that option. Now that Buffalo needs a LT, they are taking the 4th one at #11. J. Smith, Monroe and A. Smith will be gone in the 1st 6 picks and Oher will be gone at #11. We're looking at a trade down or Maualuga I'd bet.

But how about this, if Duke Robinson is sitting there in the middle of the second round, I think he is worth trading up for. Somewhere around #50, before Philly and Dallas, I'd HATE it if he wound up playing for either! Robinson is 1st round talent, a bad mf, and having him and Oher on the right side would instantly make our running game somewhat nasty. We need to get that young, serious OL talent in there while Joe Bugel is still here to teach them. Heck, trade up for Alex Mack, too, for all I care.
It sounds nice but if we have to trade up what will it require us to give up. You know teams always know how desperate we are when it comes to trades. We always get taken advantage of cause we always itching to make a move.

U have got good point, I haven't thought of that.. If it happens, then I probably would try to trade down, but if I couldn't then draft Mack.. C is another position we need to upgrade - NTs are starting to to get bigger and athleticism.. It may would be a reach to draft Mack at that spot, but having Mack in our line will upgrade the O-line.. Which is why I will not think that drafting Mack is a reach.. Beside upgrading our O-line with C, it would be perfect chance for Heyer to show whether if he can be successful this season or not.. I believe Heyer would be successful, he's getting enriched with experiences.. Regardless, I still want us to draft an OT..

And I'm curious to see why you don't like Oher?
