Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

All analysis done by Scouts Inc
1-4(4) Trent Williams - OT - Oklahoma
What he brings
: This a risky pick. There are concerns about Williams' work ethic and commitment to improving his game. However, the reward could be well worth the risk. He's the most naturally gifted tackle in this draft. He has a quick first step and lateral mobility to prevent NFL pass-rushers from turning the corner, and also has the power and nasty disposition to quickly develop into an effective drive-blocker. Video analysis: McShay | Edwards
How he fits: It was no secret the Redskins and new coach Mike Shanahan needed to add a prototypical left tackle for them to succeed quickly. The addition of QB Donovan McNabb inspires hope in the offense and Williams can bring some stability to the offensive tackle position. Players were in and out of both tackle spots last season, and the team?s best offensive tackle, Chris Samuels, retired in the offseason. This pick was absolutely necessary and Williams will start from day one.


4-5(103) Perry Riley - OLB - LSU
What he brings
: Riley is your prototypical linebacker with good overall size, instincts and a nose for the ball. He can clean up his angles and run fits on occasion. He shows above average point-of-attack skills, the ability to shed blocks and is a sound overall tackler.
How he fits: Riley will have the opportunity to move inside in the Redskins' 3-4 defense. London Fletcher is still one of the most dynamic, undersized linebackers in the league, but he won't last forever. Rocky McIntosh could be hard to resign as well. This was a pick for future depth.
Highlight Tape

6-5(174) Dennis Morris - TE - Louisiana Tech
Morris is an undersized tight end, who will play an H-back role. Won't be a big contributor as a run blocker, but can make plays in the passing game due to his athleticism and above-average ball skills.


7-12(219)Terrence Austin - WR - UCLA
Austin is an undersized slot receiver who shows good quickness in and out of breaks as well as the toughness to make a catch in traffic. He also brings value as a returner.


7-22(229) Erik Cook - OG - New Mexico
Cook lacks great inline strength and toughness on the interior. Still, he brings the potential to add depth with quickness and angles to the point in Washington's zone-blocking scheme.


7-24(231)Selvish Capers - OT - West Virginia
Capers has quick feet and much upside as a pass-blocker. It's not that he lacks toughness, but he needs to get stronger in the upperbody and be a more physical run-blocker.

I'm surprised that our two most obscure prospects (Austin and Morris) had formal in-depth highlight reels

Good work D-Bag. Amazing how our late picks have 3+ min highlight tapes.

I know right. Well technically Cook is a game tape against an average opponent (that beat the Lobos), but luckily he's pretty easy to find. He's the huge white guy (6'6) snapping the ball in case anyone else is interested. Also much thanks goes to the people who posted the videos in the draft thread and the RideOrDie who found the Riley video.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I wish that we had gotten a dynamic new tailback. I was hoping that we could grab McKnight or Dixon to knock one of the Galloping Geriatrics off of the roster.

Otherwise I think the FO did a pretty good job.

Yeah, especially finding Morris tape, because this kid regularly pancakes a defender and he could easily replace Sellers at FB next yr.

So that being said does anyone know why the fuck we'd even draft a tight and if so why not last? Why not O-line 1st then the rest?

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

Good job considering we had 5-6 picks. I love the Williams pick, the other guys may or may not make this team. Glad jc got his chance to play elsewhere. Honestly we had the best 2nd round pick this yr (mcnabb) lol so I'm happy. Maybe bring in another wr, maybe not we will see. I guess big al and Rogers are staying put.

We didn't retain Todd Yoder leaving a need for a blocking TE. This guy is not only athletic but he loves to block, and from the looks of his highlight film he's good at it. On top of that he will not just play TE but also FB and Special Teams. He should actually be pretty effective blocking on kick offs. Also considering the fact that we ended up with two lineman afterwards that I was interested in I have no problem with this pick. In fact I like it.

The thing I didn't like about it though was the fact that they drafted a similar player last year in Eddie Williams (TE/FB Idaho) in that they found a small school TE that they intended to convert to Fullback, but the main difference between the two is that Morris is much more physical.

On a side note I'm starting to think that this year the team won't have any 2010 UDFA's on the final roster.

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I like our 6th & 7th round picks.

Morris - A FB with good hands should be huge in the MS/KS offense, especially in short yardage/+10-GL situations.

Austin - Will hep our return game. 2nd team All-PAC 10 kick returner.

Cook - versatile depth for OL can play all 3 line positions. Good size at 318, but physically limited and weak (19 reps).

Capers - excellent value in the 7th. Good speed, quickness. Good T depth and will push Heyer at RT. Also weak up top (19 reps).

I know the Zone Blocking scheme values speed/quickness over strength, but either the FO/coaching staff has great confidence in our strength & conditioning team, or these guys just don't care how strong O-linemen are. The guys we drafted late are below average in the upper body (with Williams being about average).
