Re: Grade the Redskins Draft!

6 picks, 2 to possible starters, no OT's picked at what is our biggest need. Why waste a pick on a TE coming back from knee injury and a LB that was a RB with very little experience. I grade it a D cause they could have done much better. They could have traded up for Sidbury or Duke Robinson/AQ Shipley instead of wasting picks.

My 2 cents.

They didn't even need to trade up for Duke. He, Tupou, Meredith, and Johnson were sitting there in the fifth and they took a LB?

Don't think anyone said we missed out on a starting tackle. But we passed on some solid O-line prospects.

Re: Grade the Redskins Draft!

Are we grading the players or the efforts of the FO to make us a better team?

If we are grading the players, ask again in 2-3 years. It takes time to discern a Tom Brady from a Heath Shuler.

If we are grading FO effort, I give us a B-. In the draft we simply weren't going to be able to fill all 3 holes at OT, DE, and LB. Filling two of those holes through the draft would be a good draft. If Orakpo is the real deal, we filled one hole. If one of those LB's turns out to be something like the next Horton, we filled two holes. And let's face it, by drafting 2 LB's we are increasing the chance that at least one of the LB's works out. We all know that the draft is a crap shoot and hedging your bets is not a bad way of going about things. We also may have come up with Sellers' replacement, given that Sellers is 34 years old. But, at best, Sellers' replacement is a project.

It is hard to tell if we picked the right guys to fill these holes. Glenn seems like a strange choice but then again the Chargers once took a basketball player named Antonio Gates. And I do not know why we needed another WR. I'm with those who would rather have drafted Rashad Jennings.

So, B-.

Todd Yoder was playing on the O-line last year and Stephon Heyer replaced Samuels when he was injured, that's why.

Are you trying to tell me that out of the entire draft we couldn't have gotten o-line depth, especially in the fifth? It was chock full of OTs.

Re: Grade the Redskins Draft!

D for sure we don't need a TE/FB and the LB from Nebraska that played 9 games as a linebacker and missed the last 2 because of disicpline problems. What an awful pick

Yeah, the past two drafts have been VERY deep with O-line talent, particularly tackles. In those two drafts, with a total of 16 picks, we walk away with.... Chad Rinehart. Awesome.

Re: Grade the Redskins Draft!

C+

Orakpo coule have been the best overall player in the draft. mark my words on that one... he has future savage DE all over him.

We didnt get that O-Line upgrade like we wanted... so, C-

but im sure theyll be somebody that will produce from our late round picks...

I gvie it a C. LOVE Orakpo, love that we didn't go after Sanchez. Hate that we didn't upgrade the OL, and the Cody Glenn pick is a head scratcher.
Can't agree more. Love Orakpo ... hate that we didnt touch the offensive line... I just really dont understand it.

So we're set at return specialist b/c we have a guy who has never played a snap in the NFL?

Competition for punter? Did you sleep through the Hunter Smith signing this week?

D-
Loved the Orakpo pick, the rest is not good.
Cody Glenn (OLB) and Robert Henson (OLB) better turn out to be good because there were several good OL left when we took these guys. I am very disappointed we could not take a Duke Robinson (taken 5th rd. pick 159) or Fenuki Tupou (taken 5th round, pick 159). Both were taken right after we took LB Cody Glenn. Cody Glenn? Really?

Re: Grade the Redskins Draft!

C+ grade...Orakpo was a great twist of fortune, and depth at LB was needed but Orakpo can play LB also. O line should have been the 3rd round selection. We definitely didn't need another WR or TE right now. CB could have waited. We are set up well at that area for the year already. The front office has put all their eggs in the same basket, as for the O line, as last year. If we can't stay healthy, then we are in trouble and will have to shuffle players around which will mess up the chemistry of the Offense. We did acquire FA Williams as an O lineman but will it be enough? He can play G or T. Who will backup at C though? With many teams going to a 3-4 defense, the C will be getting beat up and we don't have an adequate backup on the depth charts. Most of my C+ grade is for the acquisition of Orakpo.
