WOOAAAHHh!! Were did you hear that Shanahan likes tebow, cause I sure didn't hear that, and me being a florida fan, I wouldn't want tebow here.

Also you are completely wrong about Okung. He is almost a mirror image of ryan clady who shanahan drafted in his last year in denver. Also okung is a great run blocker, pass blocker and very athletic.

I think this is starting to look like the better option. And I think we have a FO competent enough to do this...the question is, will we have a trading partner?

Re: Redskins pick 4th in the draft

I think Seattle might try and trade up with the 2 picks they have in the first. Carroll is not gonna want washed up Hasselbeck, so they are my favorite to trade, or SF maybe, but they seem content with Alex Smith.

Nate Davis is from my home town & I would like to see SF give him a chance next year.

Re: Redskins pick 4th in the draft

Don't forget the possibility that Carroll might trade for Leinart.

They may try to trade up. I doubt that they trade 2 #1's just to move up from #6 to #4, though. Following the trade value chart, they should toss us a 3rd rounder for swapping spots. I'd be cool with that.

Okung is said to have very good footwork. But he reportedly is significantly slower than Clady - a 5.25 40 vs. a 5.10 40. Shanny likes 'em fast. Therefore, instead of Okung, he may go for Bruce Campbell or Charles Brown or someone like that.

If he can. If Warner retires, Leinart may lose his "For Sale" sign.

Re: Redskins pick 4th in the draft

If we had only signed Kurt Warner when the Gi Ants cut him, we wouldn't have to worry about a QB. But everybody thought he was over the hill, which he continues to disprove every game. So my choice would be five offensive linemen for the five draft picks we have...well, at least two OL's.

Re: Redskins pick 4th in the draft

Certainly not a 1rst round pick, but could be interesting for the later rounds. He's been invited to the combine so his stock may go up.

Re: Redskins pick 4th in the draft

I haven't heard much of anything saying Okung has limitations...more like the most talented/gifted LT in years.

Supposedly he's not as physically strong as Joe Thomas or Jake Long, but that can be fixed in the weight room. Plus he has a mean streak....gotta like that!

Re: Redskins pick 4th in the draft

I think there are some concerns about Okung's ability/desire to get down and dirty (which is odd for a lineman), that his run blocking is a bit suspect and he's much more of a finesse guy

That is odd. I've seen him drive guys to the ground and stay on top of them sometimes causing a little retaliation from the defensive player. And I've seen him knock guys 5 yards off the line of scrimmage. After the combine I imagine some guys will fall and some will rise though.

Re: Redskins pick 4th in the draft

Here's Walter's report on Okung. I would gladly take my chances with him at #4.
