Re: Redskins Potentially Interested in Trading Up For Gabbert

If Mike trades up and snags him, I really believe I will have lost any hope of him bringing change into our organization. It will indicate that he either has no spine and does whatever Dan tells him to do, or that he only won two Superbowls because of the team he inherited, NOT because of what he brought to the team.

I don't think we're going to trade up for Gabbert

Re: Redskins Potentially Interested in Trading Up For Gabbert

I would like to find a comparison between the teams who had the most draft picks, and their records over the past ten years.

My assumption is the Patriots, Colts, Eagles and Steelers would lead the way.

More picks, better odds of finding the guys that fit.

I think it's amazing that we are less than 24 hours before the draft and we still have both our 1st and 2nd round picks. Haven't had both since 2002! (of course we had two 1st rounders in '05, but mentioning that takes away from the strength of my post)

Luck's only in a Redskins uniform if we have the 1st overall pick next year
If the the team who has the first pick doesn't need a qb, we could trade our two 1st round picks for the #1 overall. That was the point I was trying to make.

Well we had our 1st and 2nd less than 24 hours before the 2008 draft

We did? Theres just this big gap in my memory where 2008 is suppose to be. I keep on seeing this name. Vinny, Vinny. Everytime I hear it I want to destroy something valuable.

Re: Redskins Potentially Interested in Trading Up For Gabbert

Denver spreads the word they like Von Miller | ProFootballTalk

Not trying to prevent them from trading back with us or anything like that but Von Miller? I can understand if you're running a 3-4, but number 2 for a 4-3 OLB? That guy better be Lawrence Taylor.

Re: Redskins Potentially Interested in Trading Up For Gabbert

I think if they stay at 2 they're taking Patrick Peterson

That's not much better. You've had the best Corner in the game since 2004 or at least he was the best for most of the years since then. How does adding another corner change your defense? If I'm John Elway and I go defense with the 2nd pick I'm going either Dareus or Fairley.

Re: Redskins Potentially Interested in Trading Up For Gabbert

Are the Skins looking to trade up?

Shanahan Open to Trading Down In Draft

Quote:
“If [a team] comes up and all of a sudden at that 10th pick there’s someone that team wants and we can move back and pick up additional picks, then that could be a reality – especially if we’re able to get real value” Shanahan said during a pre-draft media session on Wednesday.

“For some, it could be a wide receiver or an outside linebacker. A team could feel very good about their football team, they’ve got multiple draft picks and they move up and take him. And if that happens, they say, ‘We need that one guy and that will be the difference in our football team,’ then they can make that decision very quickly.

“A lot of times, it ends up being best for both teams.”

What may not be best for the Redskins is trading up in the draft, Shanahan said.

I don't think they're bluffing on Miller. I think they waited until they could verify that Newton would go no. 1, and then showed their hand in an attempt to be able to get value in terms of a trade on the pick.

I think they'll opt not to trade (at the last moment), and take Miller.
