I wouldn't discount Miller either. Broncos have plenty of good choices at 2

Re: Redskins Potentially Interested in Trading Up For Gabbert

My best guess as of right now for the Redskins is: no trade from no. 10, taking Robert Quinn. But I don't really know anything anyway, so this is just a fun read.

I've got a feeling that Gabbert might be our guy. I think we get him in a trade up. Just a gut feeling, which I'm always wrong on when it comes to the Skins!

I dont think he has bust as in Cam Newton potential, but there is always potential. I think he is much safer than Cam, but coaches are gonna change his mechanics and that gimmick offense inflates his numbers in the big 12 which loves to throw the ball around. I know he is a smart kid which is a big plus and his size is ideal, I think he is a first round talent, 10 is high though.

Whomever we get ill be behind, I just want the right pick at good value like everyone, but there are more solid players at differenct positions than QB this draft.

Re: Redskins Potentially Interested in Trading Up For Gabbert

Shanny also said that trading up is not likely yesterday. I don't know if it's smoke screens or true intentions.

Another interesting point he made was that he only feels comfortable at safety and tight end. Otherwise all positions, in his opinion, are needs which can be assessed in the draft. I would have to agree with that assessment.

Re: Redskins Potentially Interested in Trading Up For Gabbert

The thing with his offense is that it still required quick passes and decisions. I think that is a plus, because he has to make reads and smart choices, a key skill needed in the NFL.

Didn't Big Ben also run a similar offense in college?

You could potentially say that about every player selected in the draft.

There are mock drafts [updated 4/28] that have Gabbert going to the Redskins at #10 without any maneuvering. It's a good thing we don't resort to them as a fact finding mission though they do exemplify the vast disparity of opinions.

All the speculation will end shortly.

Re: Redskins Potentially Interested in Trading Up For Gabbert

Also, will these rookies be falling under the old rookie pay scale? I'm curious to know this.

They don't need to spread the word they have the 2nd pick.

Denver must REALLY want to trade out of that pick.
And with each leak they decrease its trade value.

Have 2 CBs that can press and run helps the defensive coordinator be more aggressive and create pressure through scheme and it allows the non-blitz pressure a better chance to get home.

Heck, I think the Panthers should go Dareus.
I think he's the best player in the draft.

This report outlined one of the latest proposals that is yet to be completely finalized.

This article is in reference to what is going in the new CBA. That said, since the court has lifted the lockout, and most likely the teams will act under the same rules as last year. (FA = 6 years, Uncapped year, etc) Do teams wait to sign the rookies when a new CBA comes about or will they sign them under the old guidelines. Which basically means you give Cam Newton a guaranteed 55-60 million...lol
