Re: 2011 Draft Thread Rounds 2-3
It seems to me that most of you would consider this a darn-near perfect draft if we had taken Paia over Jenkins. I tend to agree.
As a Wisconsin alum and season ticket holder, I just wanted to comment on some of the Big 10 names being bandied about.
Kerrigan is going to be an excellent player. He is a tremendous pass rusher, but I fear he may struggle mightily falling back into coverage. I know that that won't be his primary job of course, but it could be a hindrance, at least at first. I hated this guy at Purdue for the same reasons I'll love him as a Redskin. He's always around the ball, and always seems to make big plays at big times.
I saw a few comments on John Moffitt. Having watched him for four years at UW, his improvement has been quite impressive, but I fear for his NFL career simply due to a lack of foot quickness. He is a great drive run blocker, but not the ideal guy to pull in the NFL, nor do I think he'll ever be more than an average pass blocker. If he'd been there in the fourth I would've been happy to get him, but in the 2nd, he would've been a huge reach IMO.
As far as Ricky Stanzi goes, I'll be highly pissed if we select him. He was pretty bad against any defense that was at least decent. And has a huge penchant for boneheaded plays in big moments. Physically, he seems decent, and I'm sure his wonderlic was fine (didn't look), but I think he's mentally weak, which, of course, is a no-no at the NFL level.
Just my 2 cents. I'm really hoping we can trade up for Kendall Hunter and find a couple of good interior offensive linemen in the 5th.
