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

Man... it's like everyone just can't wait for the Skins to pull off a monster move... I just don't see it happening though. The roster has too many needs to give away the farm for one guy. We're already down to just 5 picks this year and to give away more future picks just doesn't seem smart.

Take Okung and then someone like McCoy in the 2nd. I can live with that.

The only "monster" move I'd like to see the Redskins pull off is get a sweet deal on a trade down with the Bills or the Raiders. I can see BA outmaneuvering a team like that and getting a mini Herschel Walker-like trade (where Herschel Walker's role would be played by our #4 pick)

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

I honestly dont think it would take as much to move up from the #4 to the #1 as it did for the Giants. The Giants were trading up for a QB named Manning. I firmly beleive that our 1st this year and next, with one very late round pick would be enough to do it. Or our 1st and 2nd this year with a late round pick next year.

Either way, i still think it would be too costly of a trade. Bradfords not worth the #4 overall pick, let alone the #1 overall. Hopefully, all this talk of us trading up is just talk - kinda like how we were rumored to be trading up for Calvin Johnson a couple years ago.

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

I am really excited to see what we do. IF we traded and got Bradford, I would be syked. If we stayed pat and got Okung/Bradford at 4 and McCoy/LT prospect at 37, I would be syked. If we traded down, say with SF or the Raiders, and got more picks, I would be syked.

Dang, I am way too easy!

All signs point to the Rams taking Bradford and the Lions taking Okung. Either Suh or McCoy should be available when we pick, which means we should have no problem trading down if we want to.

The problem comes in when you consider the possibility that a team trades up to #3 and takes Clausen. At that point, all 3 of the players we'd be most inclined to take at 4 would be gone. Additionally, no one who wants one of the two DTs will would trade with us since atleast one (if not both of them) would still be on the board at 5. This is the nightmare scenario for the skins. Unfortunately, its also the one i think is most likely to happen.

What team is going to trade to 3 to take Clausen? I think this scenario is possible, but not the most likely. If the Lions and Bucs both pass on the top two DT's I would be amazed. I guess, maybe if the Lions take Okung (I think it's possible but not highly so) and the 5th or 6th team wants to trade with TB for Clausen, then maybe because TB would still get a top DT. But KC isn't going for Clausen, and I don't think Cleveland would.

It would take a cataclysmic combination of events for the Skins NOT to come out of this draft with at least two impact players.

This really all comes down to Shannys evaluation of Bradford. If Shanny thinks he's a franchise QB and feels strongly enough to trade up you would not be okay with that? The Redskins have had average or bad QB play for most of the last 30 years. I know it's a lot to trade up but I am not concerned as much with every hole being filled by September with a long term replacement...I am more concerned with us making the move that better positions us to challange for a Super Bowl sooner. And these days with few exceptions the teams with franchise QB's win the Super Bowl.

Now if Shanny does not think Bradford is a franchise QB then I would be fine with Okung & McCoy.

I like Bradford, I just don't like the idea of giving up a ton to trade up for him.

No, I would not. Further, Shanahan's drafts were almost as bad as Bruce Allens. Neither of them has ever done anything in thier careers to suggest they are savvy talent evaluators, so neither of them should be trading UP for anyone. Consider this: Jay Cutler is the best QB Shanahan has ever drafted.

Nuff Said.

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

If Shanahan sees what I see in him, I'd be all for trading up for him. Give this year's 2 and next year's 1 if we have to. Nothing changes your franchise like an elite franchise QB.

Would we have holes to fill after that? Yes. But no other position on the field has nearly as much impact as a great QB does. I'm not interested in being good, I want to be great. I want the next Troy Aikman to make my team a contender for 10+ years.

Yeah but Cutler was great for a year with Shanny, horrible last year with the Bears. Plummer was solid with Shanny, horrible everywhere else. Brian Griese, solid with Shanahan, horrible everywhere else.

And last but not least, Elway couldn't get over the hump before Shanahan. With him, won two straight titles. Give him the elite QB, and you give Mike Shanahan a chance to give you what you want.

Actually it makes a lot of sense if, as some have surmised, Bradford would prefer to play for Shanahan rather than for the Rams. Although the words were different, Eli Manning did something similar to San Diego a few years ago: he made it clear that he did not want to play for or be drafted by the Chargers.
