youre talking about Shanahan. He could be getting "help" under the podium and he'd have the same face.

Exactly, this guy is a master of hiding his emotions so don't read into it

Is the beginning of the age of glory for the white LOLB?

I feel that we'll be satisfied with this guy for years to come.

What are people's thoughts on Mallett?

Better question might be what are peoples thoughts on Stanzi.

Re: Redskins Made Smart Choice With Kerrigan

I gave the move an a. We essentially made up for the mcnabb trade by moving 6 spots and got a GREAT leader for our defense. This is a guy who will keep the energy up after Fletcher retires.

Really good value in the third round or later. Could be a very solid NFL pro. Would not take him in the second simply because there will be better players available (Mallett, Kaepernick, Devlin).

Love the pick coupled with picking up an extra 2nd rounder.

Stanza is the guy I'd target at this point. Could be the next Tom Brady or he could be a wasted pick, but at least he won't be a huge douche like mallet.

And thats not to say the current management didn't emphasize the importance of their draft board but this group seems much more flexible.

Why did you take 3 pass catchers? "Well they were the best players on the board so we followed the board and took them."
This interesting quote from Shanahan also reveals [to an extent] how he felt about the QB's that were available at # 10 that he chose to pass on. Notice he said Jacksonville needed a QB [like we don't] so obviously he wasn't that high on Gabbert otherwise he would have taken him. [Q] “We felt fortunate,” Shanahan said. “It doesn’t always work out that way. Obviously Jacksonville wanted a quarterback. It was a perfect situation for us. They called us up with about six minutes left, and we were able to make the trade and hopefully [it’s] good for both teams.” [U]

The scouting report on Kerrigan I posted in the draft thread but could easily have gotten lost in the traffic.

Re: Redskins Made Smart Choice With Kerrigan

It's an easy A for me.

At 10 we were gong to get a player that could maybe be fantastic or possibly a complete waste. And if it was a QB it had the distinct possibility to set us back even further.

Trading back and getting a guy that should be at least a solid long term starter in the league plus that extra 2 is just quality pool. At 16 the guy doesn't have to be a monster...he comes in with little pressure to transform our defense...everyone already looks at him like a piece and we resisted the urge to take one of the incredibly overrated QBs that this draft foisted upon the NFL.

On top of that this guy is going to be a by-the-books type of player. We won't be worrying too much about how to convince him to fit into the scheme or anything like that. Having a motor guy with some talent is brilliant. Picture Lorenzo Alexander but with better skills.

different positions as well. i am glad we went with kerrigan over any 3-4 defensive end. kerrigan will be an impact player rushing the passer and freeing up orakpo. 3-4 defensive ends...i dont want them in the top half of the first round really, not as much of an impact position imo.

i really dont see kaepernick being a successful nfl qb. just my gut feeling. he will take a lot of time if he ever does though.

Great post. I voted "A" as well, for all the reasons you said.

I'm surprised I'm not hearing more about Devlin from analysts. What gives?
