It seems like they favor Wisenski over Hudson if they decide to go that way.

I just want us to draft one of those guys. No preference, just get a Rabach replacement.

If we do, then getting a QB will become a smarter choice too. I do not want Andy Dalton to be lost in the preseason to a broken ankle inflicted by his Center.

That didn't work with Andre Carter so this concerns me. But can't complain too much about moving down and getting a 2nd rounder plus filling a need. That was a steal.
Almost all 3-4 OLBs in the league(successful or not) played DE, like Suggs. How many colleges actually run the 3-4?

Since Shanny passed on a quarterback, I would rather seen him get a shutdown cornerback, Prince Amukamara. The Giants got him and the Skins are going to pay twice a year.
at least 2 failed attempts? who?

The difference I see here is that Carter was a tried and true failure at the position in two different locations. It's unfair to compare when we haven't yet seen Kerrigan atempt to master the position.

I'm confident the team is reasonably sure the transition can be made and because they released Carter and drafted Kerrigan is sufficient enough for me to believe their intention is not to repeat the same mistake.

Purdue's Kerrigan sacks the try-hard stereotypes - NFL - CBSSports.com Football

Old article, but for those who are concerned about his transition to the 3-4, read this excerpt:
Quote:
Some teams think he's athletic enough to play standing up as an outside 3-4 linebacker. I see him as a 4-3 end. To help prepare for a possible transition, Kerrigan spent time working on linebacker drills and did some at the Purdue pro day last week.

With Redskins, Kerrigan lands in 'perfect' situation - The Insider - The Washington Post

how can you not love this pick? or at least like it.

Re: Redskins Made Smart Choice With Kerrigan

I just hope Haslett is finally smart enough to move Lorenzo Alexander to ILB next to London. If so and with the addition of Kerrigan, we will no longer be ranked near the bottom against run like we were last year. If we replace Golsten with a legit NFL 3-4 DE that will complete our transition into being a good 3-4 defense. I still see Golsten as the weak link. He is a good back up and good as a pass rusher, but weak against the run.
3-4 defensive linemen have to be able to stop the run or else catastrophe like 2010.

Re: Redskins Made Smart Choice With Kerrigan

For me, the real wildcard is Jeremy Jarmon. He's battled injuries and losing/gaining weight (per team request). Will he finally step up as a factor this year?

Re: Redskins Made Smart Choice With Kerrigan

The trade down is crucial--we need live bodies, especially on D.

As for Kerrigan, I like what I've read, but, as with any pick, there are no sure things.

Given what we know today (and that's all that we can take into account here), it's an A.

(And, to be honest, I'm just glad we didn't shit the bed as we have so often in the recent past. We did the obvious thing. Trade down in a deep draft and pick up help for our woeful D. It's an A for the skins. Just being normal is awesome!)

Something about draft day that can revive that old fan magic and make you a believer all over again.
