Re: Malcolm Kelly gives his thoughts on Sam Bradford

Really, it just boils down to how much the players appeal to the scouting department. A top 4 pick is an extremely expensive investment and if any player is going to be drafted that high, it's all about having the best damn football player available, period. Drafting Bradford for need is stupid and drafting Okung for need is also stupid. They need to show they can play, and at a high level. That's it.

I was just going to say the same thing. These guys were picked up by a complete idiot, who was the puppet to the owner. Denver's gotten 6 OLineman through the draft since 2005. Washington's gotten 2 since 2005, and one of those 2, Kili Lefotu, was cut and didn't even make the roster. 4 of the 6 OLineman Denver drafted were/are starters. Again with shanahan here, we will do better with getting a better OL, therefore a tackle doesn't need to be our first pick like many have said it should, it should be best available, which would either be a QB (which we will get) or a Safety, like Eric Berry.

Re: Malcolm Kelly gives his thoughts on Sam Bradford

Bradford is a BIG RISK. First of all, this draft class of quarterbacks is not all that. Bradford is coming off major shoulder surgery. That should raise a lot of red flags. No way should the Skins pick this guy that high. He is a second or third rounder at best. He is considered a first rounder because the quarterback talent is so low. The Redskin offensive line is in shambles and has been neglected for too long. Okung is the choice at #4.

You had me up until that. His shoulder surgery WASNT major. Last year, had he come out, he would be the starting QB for the Detroit Lions. And even with Suh being a consensus #1 pick, there are still rumors that even the rams might draft him #1 overall as well. So has a few red flags? Yes, but 2nd or 3rd round grade? No. But i agree, when you are picking 4th, you gotta grab the player that can start immediately and impact your team the most! We could def use an Eric Berry or even a Joe Haden if we let carlos rogers go or trade him away after tendering him. Can anyone tell me how the hell Anthony Davis rose past Russell Okung on the Scouts Draft board without even a combine yet? Did they just go back and review film?

Re: Malcolm Kelly gives his thoughts on Sam Bradford

I would not be so sure that the Lions would have taken Bradford over Stafford last year. They knew about Stafford's accuracy problems and deemed him a first-overall type anyway. It will be interesting to see how that works out. No quarterback since McNabb has enjoyed a lengthy career without better accuracy than Stafford has.

Bradford, today, is a better prospect than Bradford, at this time last year. And I have a much higher grade this year (mid first round, 15-18 ish overall big board) on Sam than I had on Stafford last year (2nd round, 43rd overall). But the Lions really liked Stafford...consider, they never even entertained the idea of bringing Sanchez in for a serious workout. It was Stafford or another position. And after the combine, they were pretty locked in to that one player.

Re: Malcolm Kelly gives his thoughts on Sam Bradford

Thought this was interesting:
The Warpath - View Poll Results

Out of 34 Warpath members that participated in the poll only 11 approved of Jason Campbell on draft day. Wonder what that number will be this time around.

Re: Malcolm Kelly gives his thoughts on Sam Bradford

Although this is off topic, but still related to Kelly's thoughts..

Redskins Insider - Kelly encouraged by conversation with Shanahan

This sounds pretty exciting, I'm hoping it will show on the field when it counts..

Shanahan: Malcolm we're going to draft your college QB.

Malcolm: Really, man that makes me feel like laying down a track or sumthin

Shanahan: ........?

"He told me he wants to put me on those types of situations where I can take advantage of my size. And then he just started talking about my hands. He said, 'We're going to find ways to get you the ball.' He told me he's going to find ways to show specifically what I can do.

"That was something I haven't even heard before in my two years here. And it was coming from a guy who I know has went out and won championships, and a guy who has had playmakers at every position. That's one thing that he knows how to do - he finds ways to get his playmakers the ball. Looking at our talent level, he said he's going to be able to use all the young guys. It was real encouraging."
Thanks Mr. Hixon.

That was two years earlier in 2004 when we gave up a third rounder for the soon to be released Brunell. The logic of passing up Brees was that we had only drafted Campbell a year earlier.
