I agree with that. I think it would also be nice to get that position filled in FA by a guy that is already successful and not hope that the pick we put into a draftee will pan out. Use those draft picks on things we can't afford to miss on, like linemen.

TW definitely had some question marks coming in, but he answered a lot them last year.

Williams made Houston his offseason destination after [Adrian] Peterson found a personal trainer and reached out to some of his former Oklahoma teammates.

"I came down and checked it out and I liked it," he said.

Among the former Sooners training with them are Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Keenan Clayton, former Carolina Panthers cornerback Marcus Walker and former Jacksonville and New Orleans linebacker Clint Ingram. [unquote]

The fruits from the upcoming draft will shed light on just how effective our scouting department has been in the evaluation process. With only two picks in the substance rounds, a gem must be found in the later rounds now that we have been granted a supplemental 7th rounder.

You bring in Sims-Walker you might get the same impact you got from Moss back in 05.

Sims-Walker wants to go to the Dolphins, but that doesn't make sense for them. They got too many slow possession receivers already.

Me too, both are top 5 offensive players in the draft. You would think they would be worth a work out at the 10 spot.

To further comment, with Santana not resigned and we needed help to begin with at that position...we are greatly lacking in talent at WR at this time.

Now if with resign Moss and add Sidney Rice...well...that would be awesome.

Shanahan has a history of drafting guys that he doesn't attend workouts for, so you really can't rule out anyone. You have to assume anyone that is top 10 worthy is on the radar.

True ala Jay Cutler.

I think we could also potentially pick up some decent WR depth late in the draft or in free agency, which Shanny also has a history of doing. Hopefully, we can add a Jeff Maehl or Dane Sanzenbacher, some sure-handed, quick, productive WRs.

Can anyone vouch for weather or not the Skins had someone at Locker's pro day?

Probably to see those two lineman that were on display.

I could be wrong, but didn't they say on Path to the Draft that only Pete Carroll was there for Seattle?

That's what I heard at least.

Yeah I heard that too, he was the only HC there, they didn't mention front office types that might have been there instead.

It was mostly regional scouts that were there, which is usually the case anyway
