Re: Sam Bradford's pro day workout should clear up top of NFL draft

The training facilities have supposedly drastically improved. I don't know, I haven't been there in years. But I know a couple of key players from the 80s/early 90s who went on to other teams said they couldn't believe the difference between the Redskins organization from a facilities/management perspective and the teams they went onto. Point being it's been that way for a long, long time.

It didn't look awful when I saw it, but I also haven't been to a whole bunch of teams' headquarters.

But it sounds like it's much better now

Reports are that Colt McCoy just had the best pro day of anyone in the last 24 hours.

Bradford's was better though. Displayed a stronger arm

Re: Sam Bradford's pro day workout should clear up top of NFL draft

Okung ......Bradford....... Suh only one will be available (at best) There is a big drop off after these three I think. Okung (safe pick and definite need)....Bradford (go for the gusto pick) Suh (best available period pick). The actual draft will simplify things. If none of these three are available you try your best to trade down and get extra picks for tackles and guards which this draft is full of.Clausen I'd only take with the second round pick (yeah yeah wont be there).Tebow if we acquired a third I'd do it. Running backs Shanny can pick up 4th to 5th round. Wide receivers we dont need period.Tight ends...Vinny's gone. Quarterback if you don't get the three mentioned forget about it.

Re: Sam Bradford's pro day workout should clear up top of NFL draft

If we do trade up for him I think part of the emphasis to trade up will be on giving up players instead of future picks. Guys like Rocky McIntosh and Fred Davis would be great for the Rams because they're young cheap players that fill a need.

You could also possibly throw in Montgomery if they like him as they've been rumored to. Jason Campbell is also a distant posibillity. Maybe even Laron though given the fact that they're trying to get rid of a safety I wouldn't count on them accepting one that bites on double moves. At the very least I feel that some of these guys will be on the trade block come draft day to acquire more picks.

Another big factor will be if the Lions decide to select Okung. If the Rams like one of the second round QB's then they'd probably want one of the two big Tackles to fall to them for them to feel comfortable enough to trade down to the 4th spot. Of course right now it seems likely that Suh and McCoy will go 2-3. At the same time maybe they end up liking Clausen.

However right now I'm loving the rumors that Bradford would much rather play for the Redskins. The only problem is how do we fix the O-Line and trade up for Bradford? Hence why I'm really hoping that Clausen can put on a more impressive workout.

Don't confuse that with "refuses to play for the Rams"

The eagles of the 80s always said that it was a negative environment & the facilities, especially the vet, were a dump. That's one of the things A. REid did, improve the facilities & of course, they got a new stadium.

I think the Skins of the 00s have the same rap, if indeed the facilities are sub par. I guess it's presumed that the danny would have the nicest stuff, but it's been said on here before how the scouting dept. was budgeted low. Now I'm hearing the club infrastructure (aside from Redskin One).

Maybe Allen is convincing him to re-allocate some of his funds from players & into the facilities & staff instead.

On a side note, i was listening to espn980 and i doc walker said our training facilities were just horrible, and among the worst he's ever seen. he'd even seen colleges that have better equipment and facilities than we do. Not to hijack the thread but does anyone here (smoot perhaps) know what gives?
from the pics that I've seen I've def seen better setups for the athletics gyms in colleges

someone, mcshay maybe, can't recall.. said that mccoy had all of his drops from under center, had more movement, etc.. wasn't nearly as controlled as bradford's

either way sounds like they both had great days

That might be better in terms of making him a Redskin.

McCoy's pro day seem to showcase more of his athletic abilities overall, where as Bradford's seemed to be more designed to showcase that his shoulder is fine

If he strongly expresses to the Rams he doesn't want to go there they might pass over him was his thinking I believe.

We can always hope for that refusal, though.

He'll be thrilled to be the #1 pick...making #1 pick money.
