Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

i gave it a B. i guess B- if we were going to get specific. the addition of solid offensive line help was the biggest positive for me. everyone needs to relax about the TE pick, he will be a FB. the kid can block, and make holes for our stable of backs. if either capers or cook work into a starting position, we will really be in business.

but why take a WR like Marko or Malcolm that would offer nothing on special teams?

and arent Malcolm and Marko enough

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I'm kinda surprised to see so many banging on the pick of Morris. As a blocker the guy looks fierce. I could easily see him winning the #3 TE spot and if he can play FB too... bonus.

Austin could stick over someone like Marko just based on his ability to play special teams.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I'm going to give it a High B or Low A, voted B.


We did well in the draft. Trent is definitely starting. Perry Riley is a possible starter and a solid pick for the 3-4 transition. We also have a backup Center/Guard in Erik Cook who could esily become Rabach's replacement and Selvish Capers was projected mush higher than 7th and could easily make the team as a backup tackle. We also added a FB to eventually step in for Sellers.

The WR we drafted could be our returner too.

We didn't have any huge names after Williams, but every one of the guys we drafted can not only make the team, but contribute. Even our 7th-rounders are great picks and values.

Allen and Shanahan made a draft with very few picks into a very productive draft class. I think they did great with what they had to work with. It's not often you can realistically see every pick making the team, but I think these guys could do it.

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.
Well you have to factor them in somehow. A pick's value just doesn't magically disappear.

How was Williams a no brainer?

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I love how 1st rounders are always written off as no-brainers around here.

I look at the draft the same way as you and I gave it an A. If any of Williams, Jarmon, or Carriker end up being a "bust" then i'd have to downgrade the draft to a C or lower. Getting McNabb for a 2nd and conditional pick next year was probably the best move of the draft in my opinion, although i'm not sure if i would still make it, knowing that Clausen and McCoy fell as far as they did. It all depends on how long McNabb wears the redskins uniform. If he plays 5 more years, i'm happy. If he plays just two or three, then i'll have major regrets.

I'll read the Scouts Inc. article because I <3 formulas, but I don't think trading for a player with an existing contract is anything like drafting your own talent at all. The trade for veteran talent can be good, or it can be bad, but it always costs draft value.

To me, that's the one constant on trading picks for players: you're costing yourself draft value, so the return must be very high to justify it.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

As far as I can tell, their "trade points" are not a component of our final ranking.

I think their Need Rankings got messed up though. If they gave out points 4-3-2-1 for filling of draft needs in the first four rounds, the most we could have possibly gotten is 5 points, per their method. If that finished in the top three for filling needs, I'm pretty sure that we might have been the only team to fill a need in this draft.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I consider the McNabb, Jarmon and Carriker acquisitions as part of our draft class because we got them using our picks, therefore I graded us with a "B".

I hadn't included them, but yes, it would be correct to since picks were expended for their acquisitions.

Including them, I'll upgrade us to an A-.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I thought the Trent Williams pick is a risk worth taking if you're a 4-12 team. I was happy with that choice.

I was a little disappointed we didn't trade into the 2nd or 3rd round, but happy that we didn't force ourselves into either or both of those rounds. We looked for the right opportunity and it doesn't seem like it presented itself.

Riley is solid (I had actually thought we might sneak into the early 3rd for Spikes). I think he can make an instant impact on special teams and some versatility at LB

I don't know much about Morris, but I think it's time we find someone to replace Sellers. Not sure it will be Morris though

Not really a fan of the Austin pick (especially with Snead still on the board! The fact that he wasn't drafted just proves that GTripp is right. All NFL execs and scouts are morons and don't have a clue what they're doing)

I see Erik Cook on the PS this year. Decent pickup. It will be lauded as the new regime drafting an offensive lineman. But I don't see it as much different from Edwin Williams dropping last year and signing with us a UDFA.

Thought Selvish Capers has the potential to be a phenomenal pick. He's a poor man's Trent Williams in the sense that he's very athletic and versatile. But he'll also work hard 100% of the time. Something that's been questioned about TW.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

Malcom Kelly says that TW has always been a hard worker. Since we know that it not the case (TW admitted as much in his press conference), that makes me question whether Kelly truly understands the meaning of "hard work." It also makes me question whether Kelly will contribute to the team as much as I had hoped in 2010. I have a nagging feeling that WR will be our greatest need going in to 2011.
