Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

Has anyone seen the sports science video on Selvish Capers?

AWESOME! This guy is a steal.

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.
Great call. No matter how good this kid is, he won't fill those shoes.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I wouldnt say Selvish Capers is a steal yet. His game tape doesnt match what you see on the sports science video but he can be developed.

Although, i like what i see when i see in Terrence Austin as a WR (good route running, quick out of breaks, catches with his hands) i like even more what i see in his return game. He would have had alot more touchdowns if he was a LITTLE bit faster

Most of his Kick and Punt Returns as a senior

I see Austin as just a returner. He did not catch a ton of passes in college and he will have a hard time shaking press coverage in the pros.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

From the highlights I've seen of Austin, he could turn into a Gary Clark kind of receiver. I like this pick.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I love the positives here, we always seem to think our late round picks are gold, unfortunately, I only see Capers as someone that will really stick, and that depends on our coaching. I gave the draft a C. Williams is obviously a good pick, but I thought Okung should have been our guy. Still, that's splitting hairs because it was a 1-a, 1-b option. I do not like the Austin pick at all. We have a history of believing in small wr's, and it's time we go away from this. While I agree, we needed G help, Cook will not be able to help for a minimum of a year, and that's if we are lucky and he is a hard worker. The TE pick was a waste, but I think we are just afraid of losing Cooley again. To say we are anything higher than a B is just nutts especially when we had so few early round picks. I could understand a D, but C is where I grade us.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I've personally seen Erik Cook play for the UNM Lobos. He is a very tall player who goes about 6'6 and nearly 320 pounds who has played all of the line positions for New Mexico. Going into the season he carried a third round grade but his team was horrible which effected his play and hurt his draft status. He moves well in space and will adapt to the zbs system of Shanahan. I think he makes the final cut or at the worst is on the practice squad.

As far as Capers is concerned I'm hoping that he's the next Donald Penn. If you remember Allen and company signed Penn as an undrafted free agent and today he's one of the leagues better left tackles. Now Capers obviously won't be a LT for us but if he can play up to his physical attributes he will end up being one hell of a steal.

I said before the draft that I would be very intrigued to see the team get Williams in the first and Capers in the fourth. The only thing that scares me about Capers being a 7th round pick is I feel like the coaching staff might be a little less inclined to give him a fair shake. However Shanahan has been known to give UDFA and late round picks more then a fair shake so I'm not to concerned about it.

I actually want to go back and look again at where Shanahan's lineman from Denver for drafted. If I remember right the most common rounds were the 4th and 5th. With some starters coming from the 3rd and 7th round. Only two guys in Clady and Foster came from the first.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

People who graded the draft at "D" or "F": why?

I don't really fall into this category because I gave it a C, but I considered giving it a D because we took one starting caliber player (who wasn't necessarily the best on the board at the position), and then didn't pick until later when we took a bunch of projectable, but uninspiring, talent.

We also didn't haul in much by way of UDFA.

We improved ourselves through the draft, I think, because we had such obvious offensive deficiencies, that Williams wouldn't have to be very good at all to improve our offense by a factor of 3-5% as a rookie. I don't know how much credit we should get for recognizing our tackles were weak, but I believe it's more than some and less than a lot.

I could see an argument that suggests that Jarmon should be considered part of this class (not sure that I would move it to a B based on that), but people who think that McNabb/Jason Taylor should be considered part of this class are reaching for a reason to like it. Trading draft picks cannot be construed as a way to get value in a draft.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

It might be a bit too optimistic, but I gave it a 'B' -- mainly because we addressed the obvious needs (O-line, linebacker, receiver) and didn't have any of those "Huh?" type picks.

I really like Dennis Morris; looks like he's going to lay some people out blocking-wise. Mike Sellers was often a liability at the position last year. When Portis called him out, turns out he was right. It was going to be time to begin to find a replacement for Sellers; and the mid-rounds is where you should do it.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

If Perry Riley becomes a quality starter for us at LB, and Trent Williams is as good as we think he can be, then it looks like we've salvaged a draft where we had only two picks in the top 105. So a lot of it hinges on Riley.

I like Cook a lot. I think he can be a starter for us someday. But getting three starters out of a draft only puts us a level playing field with everyone else.

I gave it a C, but a D could have been warranted. Williams was a no brainer, but like JSarno said the TE and the WR pick was a waste. We already have a ton of TEs and if we were going to get another WR he should have been built like Marko or Malcolm. THe linemen to me were very nice picks for being so late in the draft and they fulfilled an important need. But since they were late rounders someone playing the odds will probably write them off as being cut or PS fodder. I think both linemen can make the team outright. Our LB pick was solid and I also think will make the final cut, but there are naysayers that doubt his ability since he was a late rounder. We will see how they actually do come the final roster, but if a few of these guys don't make the cut, this draft should be downgraded to a D.

Exactly...Dont like that arguement either. Jarmon, Shanny and Allen dont have any alligence to him and frankly wouldnt be surprised if he doesnt make the final roster. So if he gets cut, our 3rd rounder, does this draft become a D or F grade?

I gave it a B as an optimist, but I dont think everybody will make the team actually think more than a couple wont. I know from now on I will be closely following Okung vs Silverback, to see who becomes the better Tackle. I think Okung was more polished, but we will see...
