Re: 2011 Draft Thread Round 1

Roddy White's initial reaction to the Falcons picking Jones on Twitter:
“Well we got Julio Jones. I’m excited."

Roddy White after seeing what the Falcons gave up:
“Well, I was wrong. We give up our draft.’’

I don't know though, I feel like the Skins brass were like "Lets trade down, if Quinn's there, then we take him if not then we're just as happy with Kerrigan."

I noticed though that Quinn isn't that good of a tackler (something RK is) and that he isn't that fluid in his hips to drop into coverage (supposedly he looked worse than RK did when he dropped into coverage at his pro day) plus Kerrigan didn't have the character or health issues that Quinn did, the more and more I look at this pick, the more I like it and the more I'm happy we didn't get Quinn.


Now as for day 2, I really really hope we do NOT draft Kaepernick.
Any potential of us drafting Bowers? Titus Young? Trading up for Mallett?

Re: 2011 Draft Thread Round 1

Well I mean Quinn was their preference but it wasn't like they were like "Oh crap, Quinn's gone now what do we do"

It was "Let's trade down and get an extra pick because odds are Quinn will be there at 16 with Cleveland and San Fran passing on him. And if he's not there Kerrigan should be there and we're going to have an extra 2nd to work with"

Well to be fair pretty much everyone thats evaluated the draft has said that the suspension from the NCAA is not an accurate reflection on Robert Quinn's character. In fact Quinn is actually regarded as a high character player by most scouts and personnel. On top of that the brain tumor is benign.

The real argument for Kerrigan over Quinn is production. In 2009 when Quinn last played, Quinn posted 11 sacks. Kerrigan posted 12. Also in 2008 when both were sophomores Kerrigan got 7 sacks to go with his 56 tackles. Quinn on the other hand got only 2 sacks to go with 34 tackles.

In the year Quinn was unfairly suspended Kerrigan posted 13 sacks.

So at the very least in terms of raw numbers, and not knowing situations, surrounding personel, matchups, opponents, etc Kerrigan had the better numbers.

Knowing what I know now though we couldn't really have gone wrong with either. Still both teams picking at 14 and 16 now have great bookends/OLB's. St. Louis with Long and Quinn, and us with Orakpo and Kerrigan.

So just found out Paea is a Nose Tackle in a 3-4. Unless Dalton is there I want Paea at 41.

Re: 2011 Draft Thread Round 1

Another fun moment from tonight, well I'm not sure I'd call it "fun" per se, getting practically run over by Mike Pouncey's buddies as they find out he's talking to the Dolphins "Mike's on the phone! Mike's on the phone! He's on the phone! He's on the phone! He's on the phone! Let's go! Let's go! Let's go! He's on the phone!"...bullrush backstage

Yes to Wisniewski - he would be a great fit.

I really like Hankerson, who I think may turn out to be better than Julio Jones, but I would prefer that the Skins take linemen in Round 2.

I don't know enough about Paea to have an opinion.

No to Stanzi in the second round. I don't think he's an NFL QB.

Re: 2011 Draft Thread Round 1

Dalton or Mallet @ 41, trade down or get Hankerson or Greg Little at WR

-Signal was horrible. My texts to Matty were arriving sometimes 20-30 minutes after I'd send them. So, so much for being the "embedded warpath reporter" on the ground

-To see players' moms and grandmothers (and other families) get excited was really cool

-I totally called Ponder to the Vikings in one of my mocks

-After the Niners passed on Quinn, the plan to move down was to get Quinn at 16, we didn't expect him to go to the Rams. We also didn't think Ponder would go to the Vikings

-Kerrigan is a solid pick, but man if he effs up he'll have to deal with chants of "Nannnncy...Nannnnncyyyy"

-No, I'm not Scott Van Pelt

-I never predicted Vince Young to the Redskins, I merely reported that we're seriously considering him...I predicted Alex Smith (which may be just as foolish)

-Names I heard most frequently mentioned for tomorrow (in no particular order): Stephen Paea, Stephen Wisniewski, Leonard Hankerson, Ricky Stanzi...which means we're taking Andy Dalton and Rodney Hudson
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! The guy is mentally weak. If he can't hack it in Tenn then there's no was he can cut it here.

Re: 2011 Draft Thread Round 1

SMOOT - On NFLN they showed a shot of one lone Skins fan in the seats, wearing a burgundy Portis jersey.

My life laughed and said "Look, we only have one fan there!"


WAS THAT YOU?






----------------

My thoughts:

Titans taking Locker that early...stupid but I was excited that they saved us from being stupid.

Then, I was nervous we'd take Gabbert, not a fan. THANK YOU JAGS! GREAT TRADE FOR US! 2 second-rounders will be very beneficial.

Kerrigan was a solid pick for us. We should be able to play OLB fine. I watched his highlight vid and checked his sack/forced fumble stats...IMPRESSIVE. I'm excited to see him and 'Rak attacking QBs from both sides. We're going to be a D with a ton of sacks and TOs.



NOW...Get DALTON with one of the picks, preferably #41. Then go for the best available O-Lineman, Hankerson (WR-Miami) or a CB, maybe the kid from Miami.

I thiik we have a great shot at Kris Jenkins in FA to address the middle of our D-line, so use the draft for more pressing needs.

They were thinking that they are just one big-time player away from the big dance.

LOL. No, not me. I didn't wear any Redskin gear. I did see some dude in Portis gear, another in a Smoot jersey, another wearing Taylor #36.

On some of the wide shots of the crowd you could see quite a few Skins fans.

SS sitting in the crowd with the common folk? Please.
