I think that the NT is the most important position in a 3-4. What this means is that you want more than a "serviceable" NT IMHO. To have a dominant 3-4 means having a dominant NT, not a "serviceable" NT. Sure, you can have a vanilla joe for rotational depth, but your #1 guy should be a monster.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

He's a slow Byron Leftwich. His release may be quicker than BL's though. Mallet does not look like a west coast qb. Al Davis is the most likely to nab him in the 1st round, unless he still is high on JC.

This seems to be an opinion that some analysts have voiced too, though I can't recall exactly who. It makes sense, a dominant NT makes the O mismatched right from/at the snap.

Agreed. What we had last year were serviceable nose tackles. Time to find a stud.

Byron was fast?

NT followed by RDE as a very close second.
You gotta have at least 1 guy up front that can consistently beat 1-v-1 blocking to the point where they can command a double team.

I totally agree with you. I guess I did not specify enough. I think that we should get a serviceable NT for this year. You can't fix every position in one year. It is going to take time. Unless a miracle happens we aren't going deep in the playoffs next year anyway.

Don't waste a draft pick on an important position, especially a pick that reaches, when we have tons of other needs at other positions and could probably get the BPA at another position instead of a NT.

That way, we can improve the other positions with a more long term high quality pick and fill the NT position next year in the offseason or in the draft when there is hopefully a more highly touted prospect available and we have less pieces of the puzzle to figure out.

If I understand you right I think I agree.

My view is that our defense was sos bad last year at 2 key positions along the DL: RDE and NT that simply having serviceable play will be an improvement.

BTW-I think that Anthony Bryant can be part of the improvement at NT

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Recap of Mel Kiper's phone conference in regards to the Redskins and the draft.

Mel tells - Redskins Rule Blog post - Ultimate Fan Community

If none of the top two QBs are at #10, it seems that the Redskins will need to decide on either a NT or a QB in the 2nd round.

Since the draft is deep in d-lineman, I'd trade down, pick up the best NT in the bottom of the first round, and hopefully have either have an additional 2nd rounder or a 3rd rounder from the trade down to pick up a QB/RB/or interior lineman.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

I think Mike Shanahan will finished what he started last draft and tidy up the OL-RT. They could even drop down in the draft, picking up a pick or two, and still get a very good rookie RT.
