PFT: Predict Skins To Take Trent Williams

According to PFT, the top 5 is coming into focus and the Skins will take Trent Williams (OT).

Top five coming into focus

Posted by Mike Florio on April 20, 2010 9:35 AM ET
On Sunday, it appeared that the first five picks in the 2010 draft could unfold in several different ways.

Now, with the draft little more than two days away, it's getting clearer.

Here are the first four names we think we'll hear on Thursday night:

(1) Sam Bradford

(2) Ndamukong Suh

(3) Gerald McCoy

(4) Trent Williams.

At No. 5, it's unclear what will happen.

Re: PFT: Predict Skins To Take Trent Williams

This is a head scratcher here reminds me of Deja Vu

Trent Williams = Heyward-Bey
Russell Okung = Michael Crabtree

Re: PFT: Predict Skins To Take Trent Williams

I think the idea is that Okung is more polished but Williams has more raw athletic talent. Also, there are some clear points on film where he (Okung) was beaten by less than stellar defensive ends.

Don't take this as a challenge but I'd be very interested in seeing this. All the "film" I've seen on Okung make him look like a demi-god.

Re: PFT: Predict Skins To Take Trent Williams

People think that Williams can't play LT because he struggled in his first game last year and Bradford got hurt. But if you watch Williams' progress throughout the season you'll see that he improved at LT (plus he's played at RT and some C) so he's very versatile and extremely athletic. Okung, not so much.

What you get out of Okung now could be pretty much what you'll get for the next decade. And that's not a bad thing. But when you see Williams you could be getting a guy who maybe "struggles" a bit early, but then totally takes off...or totally collapses.

I can see the Redskins taking Okung at #4. But I've gotten no sense that they really value him that high. But without a 2nd round pick right now (and until the Brown trade becomes official...or not), they may have no choice but to value Okung that high

Re: PFT: Predict Skins To Take Trent Williams

In the Pro Football Draft Guide 2010 the said TW (Trent Williams) is short with short arms that's the only magazine that said this, is there any truth to it.

Re: PFT: Predict Skins To Take Trent Williams

Let's compare both to Chris Samuels, whom I believe would have been a great OT in Shanahan's zone blocking scheme. Do either of these guys have similar athletic ability? I will trust that Allen/Shanahan will make the right call, but if we draft the raw talent (Williams), and he flames out, we'll be gnashing our teeth once again over another blown top-5 pick. I'd feel much better going for the safer pick (Okung) this high in the draft, but that's just me.

Re: PFT: Predict Skins To Take Trent Williams

First of all nothing is written in stone. Are we taking Trent Williams before or after we take Okung and before or after we take Sam Bradford or is it right after we take Jimmy Clausen or Eric Berry.

My Gawd it seems like the Skins are predicted to take every player in the draft, so why are you guys even bothering to get flustered over the Skins drafting a name on a piece of paper. Hasn't happened yet. Cry and raise your blood pressure AFTER the pick has been taken.

You take all the fun out of participating in a message board.

SS, I am interested in this (until the Brown trade becomes official... or not) comment. I haven't heard a lot about it. Can you fill me (us) in a bit?
