The WR Austin is from the same High School as Desean Jackson Long Beach Poly. He is simular is size as Desean Jackson and Austin does have nice speed. Who knows he could be our KR/PR and slot WR in a few years. He from Long Beach CA so I know he is a baller. Dont be surprised he maybe a playmaker in the return game we have been looking for. Good Job Bruce/ Shanny and Scouts.......

No kidding. Looking at those videos and you wonder why the guy wasn't a first round pick. I don't know why the comments say he isn't much of a run blocker -- he was knocking helmets off and blowing people off the line.

He won't get much playing time on offense behind Cooley and Davis though. Look for him mainly on special teams I guess.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

Picks I liked:
Trent Williams: Needed to be done and he will be better than okung IMO.
Terrence Austin: If he makes the team we could have out Special Teams sorted out.
Selvish Capers: Good late round pick, hopefully he rises to the occasion.

Not Sure:
Perry Riley: Here I was hoping for us to take Bruce Campbell but if we lose McIntosh for a pick it makes sense.

Dislike: (For Now)
Dennis Morris: Unless there is something we dont know about Cooley or Davis, this was a pick that makes no sense.
Eric Cook: This would have been better as Snead or Blount at this point. I thought Blount would have actually done well in washington.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

^ Look at the YouTube breakdown of Dennis Morris -- you'll change your mind about him.

I wondered about his playing time too, with Cooley and Davis already firmly in place. But he'll be in the FB position, backing up Mike Sellers, and might be stealing playing time from him.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

Here is how I look at our 2010 draft:


Round 1. Trent Williams
Round 2. Donovan McNabb
Round 3. Jeremy Jarmon
Round 5. Perry Riley
Round 5. Adam Carriker
Round 6. Dennis Morris
Round 7. Terrence Austin
Round 7. Erik Cook
Round 7. Selvish Capers

Given what they had to work with, I think they did well.

Okay, I know that it is just a highlight reel but Dennis Morris looks absolutely terrific!! What blocking, it would be great if he turns out to be a late-round gem

Excellent point. Another thing we have to give credit for is the secrecy and deception with which they were able to cloak their actual intentions. I heard several analysts and an interview with one GM who all said they had no idea which way we were going to go with the 4th overall pick.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

Like I said earlier, you have to wonder why he wasn't projected much higher than the 6th round.

From the little I have seen, I like this guy -- he'll be my training camp favorite this year. He won't get to wear #49 though.

I agree with you.

The Draft is an Big Event for me but for Shanny and Allen draft picks are simply tools among the other tools in their toolbox. The other tools are Free Agency, trades, strength and conditioning, teaching, etc. Their goal is to use all of their tools in conjunction to build a championship team and not to "win" the Draft event itself. So, of course, they are not going to cling to second round pick when they can use it to get Donovan McNabb.

When I look at the players they added during the actual NFL Draft event, I think I'm seeing that they drafted for team needs and that they focused on players who were very productive in college and who are versatile. I don't think it's as helpful for us to look at the nominal positions these guys played in college as it is for us to look at the multiple things that each of them may be able to do for the team. For example, I'm sure that Special Teams ability was considered when they drafted Riley, Morris, and Austin.

Anyway, that's how I see it.

Combine Morris with our new and improved strength and conditioning program, and we may have an absolute monster on our hands. I'm rooting for the guy.

He is to short, for a TE in general. Thats why he slid. If he was 6-4 he would have 2nd or 3rd.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I think a solid B. I'm glad to see the OL addressed finally. Williams is a good 1st round pick in the draft for our scheme with a big upside IMO. Hope some of the later picks stick.

He's not too short to be a FB, though. I think he's going to take Big Mike's job if Mike doesn't watch himself. The nice thing about Morris is that he can serve as a FB, as a blocking TE, as a receiver out of the backfield or as a TE, and I'd bet that he'll lay some somebody out on ST before the season is over.
