Re: Redskins Draft Analysis Thread

Shanahan confident his past minor indiscretions are behind him and his size and versatility will add depth to both ST and the WR positions.

WR Niles Paul adds size, versatility - The Insider - The Washington Post

The Raiders really hurt our chances at keeping carlos rogers for a reasonable price.

These two guys basically have identical statistics last year Rogers -54 tackles, 1 FF, 2 INT Routt - 55 Tackles, 1 FF, 2 INT. Both are cover corners with no hands. Add to that the fact that Rogers is bitter about his tender last season and I would expect him to walk.

If he walks fine, but he's not going to find the big $$ out there he thinks he's worth.

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis Thread

I know this is a bit off topic, but since we're talking about CBs, I'm really hating the rumors of Nnamdi to the Eagles.

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis Thread

Just as I suspected. So for all you guys saying that the Redskins should have tried for more remember this. The Cowboys got to greedy and had to reach 7 picks early for a Right Tackle instead of picking up an extra second.

Cowboys say no to trade offer from Jaguars

The Cowboys got the same offer from the Jaguars that the Redskins eventually took.

The Jaguars acquired the No. 10 pick from the Redskins to take quarterback Blaine Gabbert. To do so, the Jaguars gave up the No. 16 pick and the No. 49 pick.

If the Cowboys had taken the offer, they would have had picks at 16 (the Jaguars’), 40 (their own) and 49 (the Jaguars’).

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis Thread

Thought I would share this video if it's not posted I found..


Has most of our picks and their highlights.. Something noticed in the video's is Helu is a freaking BURNER... Guy hits the corner and is GONE!!! I could see him starting by the start of the season, and R-ster or Torain at 2nd string.

Hank will be our #1 soon.. He's a beast.

Speaking of Hankerson....this interview with him on 106.7 the fan suggests he's a player that will be playing with a chip on his shoulder. I admire confidence when it's not borderline arrogance.

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis Thread

I wonder, is this the first time Shanahan has gone hungry for captains in the draft? Or did something similar happen in one of his Broncos drafts?

The questions begs....was his draft board set up that way....did he follow his board, or was it just coincidence? Whatever his intention was, I think one could safely conclude it became apparent he was looking for a particular type of player.

Or prove him right. It's easier to bring in new guys that don't need much attitude change than to change guys who are set in their own ways. People are stubborn fellows, and being a counselor and therapist is not one of Mike Shanahan's strong points, nor does he really have the time for it even if he were good at those things.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Dirtbag's Final Offseason Draft Grades

R1P17 - Ryan Kerrigan - OLB - Purdue - High motor player that can hold up at the POA. Also capable of getting to the QB and could easily be the best OLB in this class, at the very least though he's a suitable compliment to Orakpo Grade A

R2P41 - Jarvis Jenkins - DE - Clemson - Space eater that will keep blockers off linebackers and no longer allow teams to run away from Carriker. If he gets better in the weight room he could easily be a steal but the bottom line is he'll only really be counted on for dirty work. Grade B

R3P15 - Leonard Hankerson - WR - Miami - Thank St. Louis for passing him up one pick earlier. Nothing to dislike here. Receiver is a huge need and Hankerson has the physial tools, production, and intangibles. Grade A+

R4P8 - Roy Helu Jr - RB - Nebraska - Productive player with game breaking speed in the Shanahan system. Grade A

R5P15 - Dejon Gomes - Everything - Nebraska - What is he? Is he an in the box safety? A nickel back? Speedy OLB? A special teams player? At the very least Gomes is a football player that will work hard and probably make this team. On the other hand we already had similar players on our roster and more useful players were still on the board. Grade down the road has potential to be a lot higher Grade C

R5P24 - Niles Paul - WR - Nebraska - Depends on how you look at Paul. On one hand he has first round talent but on the other hand his production is that of a...well 5th round pick if that. The problems with alcohol don't sound encouraging either. Either way the main point of view I take on this pick is the next receiver the Redskins selected is much more promising and the only thing keeping me from giving this pick a D is Paul's first round ability. Interesting fact, Paul is the Nephew of former Packers Running Back Ahman Green Grade C-

R6P12 - Evan Royster - RB - Penn State - Royster has a great combination of vision and production. Shanahan probably oversold when he compared him to T. Davis but in Washington Royster has a real chance to succeed. Grade B+

R6P13 - Alderick Robinson - WR - SMU - Robinson is a very good pick. Though he doesn't get behind defenses in spite of his speed he's still a quality route runner that catches the ball in the first window (See end of post for explanation). He has the type of production that would easily have justified a 3rd round pick. Has great potential working out of the slot and could easily find himself competing with Terrance Austin for the role of the next Eddie Royal. Grade A-

R7P10 - Brandyn Thompson - CB - Boise State - uhhh Corner. Grade F-. In all seriousness though Thompson is a decent physical corner with the ability to pull in Int's. However his hips aren't very fluid according to reports and in general good Corners seem to fall less in drafts then any other position. Unlike most corners though he's willing and able to play the run. Grade D+

R7P14 Maurice Hurt - OG - Florida - Zone capable Guard with decent versatility. Played LG, RG, and RT at Florida however height will limit him to Guard at the next level. Durability problems might have led to his drop. At the very least he's another developmental lineman to flow down the pipeline. Grade B-

R7P21 - Markus White - OLB - Florida State - Very raw but physically gifted player. He also comes with decent production racking up 8 sacks last year. He has durability concerns especially with a history of seizures however White also possesses a high ceiling and could find himself as a situational pass rusher and go to backup a year or two down the line. Grade B-

R7P50 - Christopher Neild - NT - West Virginia - Hard worker with great bulk for a 320 pounder. Loves football and relishes taking on and working through double teams. At the very least will be a rotation player for years, but could also become a starter one day. Grade A-

*Receiver Windows - A concept explained to me by Cris Carter who ironically coached Leonard Hankerson in High School. 1st window is where the best receivers catch the ball with their hands extended away from their body. 2nd window is right in front of the face mask or with the body. 3rd window is where players catch the ball after it passes them away from their field of vision. The higher the window the higher the chance of a receiver causing tip drill Int's.

**All grades are arbitrary but are based on a combination of need, value, floor, ceiling, ability to make the team, and the ability to contribute.

Yes and I'll tell you why. Assuming we're in position to select Jones after season ends with an early pick we'll end up getting shafted. First the "next years class will be better" lines will be rattling off left and right calling you an idiot for wanting Jones because 2013 will land us a better QB. Then about a week or two before the draft some team picking ahead of us will fall in love with him and select him (See: Bradford, Sam and Locker, Jake).
