NEW!! Improved Front Office Strategy!

Redskins Eye Defensive Ends In Draft

About time we see something other than QB Sanchez and a switch to rename our team the Mex-Skins!

I've said DE in the Draft for thirteen years straight! Of course, this year I was thinking OL! LOL!

Re: NEW!! Improved Front Office Strategy!

This thread might be better suited for the NFL Draft Forum. As it is another Draft related thread.

Gotta like Orakpo and his versatility.

Re: NEW!! Improved Front Office Strategy!

This article has Sidbury listed at 6'7". Oops. He's 6'2".

Personally I believe the sources leaking behind the scenes stuff about us trying to get Sanchez over some nothing fluff article on the team's website. I mean, I'm sure if we had a real interest in 1st round DE, we wouldn't be advertising it our own home page. Actually, nevermind, we actually might.

Re: NEW!! Improved Front Office Strategy!

Well a DE @ 13 only makes sense if all 4 top OTs are gone, Rey is gone and we can't get jack shit trading down. I see DE as maybe our 4th need after LB, OT, C and possibly guard, and I just don't comprehend the hype among some folks for drafting one. Daniels/Wynn rotating = very good runstopping w/ the occasional sack/pressure on the QB. We can swing big Al to LDE here and there and still have a very good DT rotation left in the middle (personally I think this setup will yield regular sacks). And last our quickest DT Lorenzo is practicing at LDE now...I think this kid might be a real diamond in the rough for us. Blache is a pretty creative schemer so I just don't see DE as a big issue, but what the hell if Orakpo falls he'd be hard to pass on just like Raji.

...Rey will help us more than Orakpo though as he's a bigger upgrade at LB than Orakpo will be for us at LDE

Re: NEW!! Improved Front Office Strategy!

This is a redskins.com source so I don't put to much into what comes out of there. It's bascially the Larry Michael of Redskins news (sometimes literally). Hell the Redskins could go 0-16 and the site would still put a positive spin on things.

Larry Michael is a company man. This is why I love Brian Mitchell - he keeps it REAL!

We need a few players to help us compete with the Eagles and Giants. I know we beat Philly 2 times but both games were so close. You see both those teams believe in strong offense and deffensive lines. Maybe we need to try that philosphy. If Orakpo is there we better take him cause Daniels and Wynn scare no one. Lorenzo trying DE please he is to slow bro, keep him backing up our DT. I hope C.Wilson or Rob Jackson can surprise us and step up. We need speed on the edge to get after Romo and McNabb. If RAK is gone take Rey Maualuga.

Re: NEW!! Improved Front Office Strategy!

I was watching NFL Network and Solmon Wilcox gave the Draft Grades for the NFC East since 2004.
1. NY Giants: A Drafted 19 starting players.
2. Eagles : B Drafted 14 starting players.
3. Cowboys: A Drafted 17 starting players.
4. Redskins : D Drafted 9 starting players.

This is why we have know young talent at the O-Line or D-Line postions, cause we like to go after other teams veteran lineman. The Last 2 offensive line we drafted higher than the 3rd round since 2000 has to be Samuels and Jansen. Thats a D** Shame.

Anyone think we should be a more defensive mind team like Baltimore, Steelers,and Titans. If we focus mainly on our defense by strengthen our DE, and Linebackers this would give us a solid top 5 defense. Lets face it we have not had a scoring offense since maybe Nov Turner. This is just a thought guys because we just dont have enough picks to fill all the holes so lets just try to draft for our defense to keep us in games. Next year we draft strictly for the O-line. 1step and 1 year at a time. Lets be real its going to take some time to fix this mess.

Good move! Apparently, you have psyched them out by thinking OL this year. Now, we'll finally get that DE we need.

I think Tyson Jackson would be a great fit for us at LDE.

If Lawrence Sidbury can play SLB, then he'd be a heckuva pick in Round 3. He is a great athlete and football player.

Draft defense. If they can't score, then they can't beat us.

Yes. But we can do a little of both if we trade down and pick up a 2nd round pick. Draft for need. Pick up a DE, a SLB, and a RT. After that, I'd look at OL's and DB's the rest of the way, hoping to get lucky with a late pick.

Brian Mitchell is a pure, unadulterated Skins hater. Ever since he got released in '99 he hasn't had anything positvie to say about the organization! He's like the ex-girlfriend who wanted to marry you but you dumped her right before Valentine's day, they're always gonna hate you! You can actually see him smirking in pleasure after each one of our losses on the post-game show. How can you be a B&G fan and listen to that dude? He's an Eagle...cause he's always player "catcher" for Andy Reid.

I hate that guy and wish Snyder would fire him from 980!

I agree! Plus Rey doesn't have the "bust" factor that Orakpo/Ayers have!
