I wasn't a fan of his and I'm not sure I want him as a Redskin, but the more baseless crap that gets spewed about him the more I'd love to see him succeed. Good luck Ryan.
Ryan Mallett is not being picked first overall. Unless that was happening I don't get the Leaf comparisons.

I understand the fact that he's not going #1 but there are a lot of people that claim he's Ryan Leaf waiting to happen, that that is the type of player that someone will be getting. I don't see it, but I reckon it's possible. My statement wasn't one of draft position as much as it was a comparison of perceived risk. So in that aspect, the Leaf comparison is quite accurate.

Re: NFL Draft Day 2: Predictions

Paea at #41

Greg Little at #49 (or trade)

After last night, I trust the FO to do what's right here on out.

Ryan Leaf failed because, according to him, "When playing football became a job, it lost its luster for me."
Essentially, he hated his job, just like the workers in the movie Office Space.

True, but Leaf was a HUGE bust because he was being hyped as a franchise QB worth of the #1 overall. I could be wrong, but how many times do you hear someone refer a 2nd rounder that didn't work out as a huge bust? Is like comparing Devin Thomas with any of the first round WR busts that the Lions picked under Matt Millen.

Re: NFL Draft Day 2: Predictions

Paea has played in the Pac-10 against some really good teams, Ellis has played in a smaller conference and we don't know how good he can be. Paea is a beast and I would love to call him the "Angry Samoan" even though he's Tongan.

SFREDSKINS, are his knee issues a concern at all? He could be a poor man's Ngata.

Wait a minute... I think we are actually on the same page. I don't see him as being a bad pick at all in the second round but I still think you will hear some bust talk just because he was a high profile qb prospect coming into the draft. At this point, I kinda think the risk/reward has evened out or even moved into the reward being greater than risk side.

As far as I know he's fine, this guy can manhandle people.

I also would refer to him as being the "angry Samoan" lol. All Pacific Islanders are Samoan in my book lol... Wait a minute, I hope that doesn't make me a bad person lol

Shanahan will gamble a little in the mid rounds...see Maurice Clarett. I don't think we'll draft Mallet though.

Re: NFL Draft Day 2: Predictions

According to the rumor mill on the Coach and Doc show, the Skins are working hard trying to trade out of the 41 spot to recoup a/some picks in the third or fourth round.

Wouldn't go that far. He seems to have matured since getting kicked off SC's team. Ellis is a true NT and a steal for any team in need of a 3-4 NT; he's visited w/ us so we have some interest. As did Little (WR, UNC), who could've gone earlier had he played in '10. Little or any (WR) becomes a more likely pick at #49 if we take a QB (Kaepernick or Mallet), and Little 6'3 230 has great hands, decent speed (not a burner), tough to tackle, reminds me of a poor man's Boldin; a big possesion WR opposite Armstrong.

#41 QB (Kaepernick, Mallet)
#49 WR Greg Little or trade down

We're talking with the Raider supposedly. Not sure of the specifics but we'd get their 3rd rounder and 2012 1st rounder
