How does Jason Peters affect the 13th pick...

Due to trading Peters to the Eagles, the Bills now have a glaring need at OT, and I feel like there's a very good chance that they take the best OT available. With Jason Smith and Eugene Monroe likely to go in the first 4 picks, and Andre Smith likely to go the Bengals, that leaves Michael Oher, and I think that the Bills do pull the trigger on him at #11.

Before the trade I had a feeling that the Redskins would only select an OT if Andre Smith fell to them, but now there is no way he drops to #13. With no good OL prospects to take at their pick, what do you think the Redskins do? Should they take Rey Maualuga, or should they try and draft a DE? I think trading down now makes more sense, as there really isn't any talent that is worthy of the 13 overall pick, except perhaps Maualuga. I think if they trade for two late round first rounders they can still get comparable bang for their buck and take both a LB and Alex Mack. Then address OT with the third round pick (maybe Phil Loadholt or Fenuki Tupou? I'm not really sure who'd still be available then). What do you guys think..?

Re: How does Jason Peters affect the 13th pick...

The Bills also desperately need a pass rusher.

I could see them taking either the best tackle or DE available. They had been shopping Peters for a while, so I don't think this changed their strategy much.

If none of the big 4 tackles are available, I'd like to see us go defense. As you mentioned, this draft is very good for O-lineman.

Trading down would be great, but who really wants to trade up in this draft, I'd love to take Larry English in the lower part of round 1 I think he'd be a better fit than Malaluga to play the hybrid position.

Re: How does Jason Peters affect the 13th pick...

I think there is a much greater probability that Buffalo will take an OT now that they've traded Peters. On the other hand, if there are four OT's taken in the 1st Round, then it will be the first time that has happened in at least ten years. So who knows if there will be one of the Big Four OT's there when the Skins pick.

If not, then I'd like to see the Skins trade down into the low 20's, if possible, to add a 2nd round pick. The player I want in the first round is DE Tyson Jackson. Then, I'd take RT Phil Loadholt in the 2nd and Lawrence Sidbury in the 3rd. I'd try Sidbury at SLB.

What I am about to say is not a prediction, just a mention, but Buffalo might also go TE and take Pettigrew, figuring that they are getting the BPA at that position.

I think there will almost definitely be 5 OTs taken in the 1st round. The big 4 plus Eben Britton.

William Beatty or Phil Loadholt might sneak up there into the first round.

Don't sleep, cuz it might be 6 + now that Peters is gone.

Also, this affects what Philly will do with its other first rounder. They are less inclined to take a tackle, but who knows.

I just want this weekend to be over already/

I guess I'd go with OLB Marcus Freeman. If he wasn't available, I hope to get either C Eric Wood or C Antoine Caldwell.

Who would you pick in rounds 1 thru 3 if we traded down and picked up a 2nd rounder?

Sadly, if we stopped drafting from a school every time we got a bust like Andre Johnson, we'd have almost no one left to draft from outside of Millsaps College.

Has anyone checked to see if there are any prospects from Millsaps?

He spent his first year inactive and then they cut him in his second training camp.

What idiot GM made that pick I can't remember? Maybe Casserly.
Chad Rinehart is Andre Johnson reincarnated (Just not drafted quite as high).
