If Russell Okung is gone?

The consensus no-brainer pick for the Skins is Russell Okung. We obviously need a starting Left Tackle, he's the highest rated.
There is a fair chance though, that he will be taken before we pick. I don't think it's a certainty that the #2 and #3 picks will both be DT's.

So what would you do then? Would other teams be willing to trade the farm for McCoy? What if Suh was there? Would you just take Trent Williams or Bulaga there and go home, or is there going to be a strong market for one of those DT's? If so, from who?

Re: If Russell Okung is gone?

There's already been talk that we could take Trent Williams even if Okung is there...

Re: If Russell Okung is gone?

Honestly that might be the best scenario for the Redskins. Assuming Bradford goes one, Okung 2, and one of the DT's 3 (I don't think it matters which one because everyone loves both to a degree), that makes the fourth pick look very attractive. You still have one elite DT, Eric Berry, the only other first round rated QB in the class, most of the elite OT's, and the pick of every other position in the draft. IF this happens I think there's a good chance we could end up getting a pretty sweet deal.

I feel like if Suh fell to 4th, the return on a trade would be too good to pass up. We'd miss out on the top, top LT's, but I wouldn't complain.

Re: If Russell Okung is gone?

History shows that Suh and McCoy are more likely to bust then QB's.

Re: If Russell Okung is gone?

We should still trade down and get an extra pick and if possible in the 2nd or 3rd round (if we get a pick somehow) draft this guy:

Re: If Russell Okung is gone?

If Okung is gone, Trent Williams is a nice consolation price. If Okung is the ibuprofen for McNabb's ailments, Williams is at least a warm blanket.

Even though I have Suh and McCoy 1, and 1a in grades, I would consider taking Suh with the fourth pick, but not McCoy. The worst possible outcome of the first three picks for us is 1) Bradford, 2) Okung, 3) Suh, because at that point, Williams should be best available.

Again, I don't have an issue with picking Williams over Suh for need, even if Suh grades out higher. When you only have one choice in the top 100, need has to be a primary consideration.

In any situation where Okung is gone, trading down is a great alternative to making a pick.

Re: If Russell Okung is gone?

Williams seems more athletic, might be the better fit for zone blocking anyway.

That's what people are saying, I would like more picks regardless meaning trade back.

Also: more likely to boom.

Quarterbacks are rarely boom-or-busts types, and most don't bust without a continuous push off the cliff from their organization. However, the great quarterbacks appear to be much rarer than the great defensive lineman, at least in terms of the draft.

But yeah, DL, more than other positions, has the potential to produce a highly paid draft choice who simply doesn't have the ability to rush the passer at the next level.

If Okung is gone, the skins will trade back and would be smart to do so. Williams is nice, but he's also the one that was responsible for Bradford getting absolutely leveled.

Re: If Russell Okung is gone?

I would want to trade down if Okung is gone. My fear is there wouldn't be a quality offer for the pick. I really don't like Williams at 4. I would be OK with Suh or McCoy if they went there as it does seem possible Haynesworth will be dealt. If we come out of this draft with Suh/McCoy and Brown/Saffold, I would consider it a good draft. That would at least be 2 quality starters, and take some of the pain away of losing Albert.

The difference between Williams at the start of the year and the end of year is apparently pretty large.
