They were simply trying to bring in a lot of players because they are rebuilding the team. I doubt that Mike Shanahan cares what we think.

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis Thread

I liked our draft. We need a youth infusion into our team and this helps. I really liked the Kerrigan, Hankerson, Helu, Robinson picks. I would have liked to see another OL in there but hey we've got needs everywhere else too.

It's going to take a couple years of doing it this way too. I'm ok w/ that.

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis Thread

Biggest mistake of the draft. Not using a late round pick on Luck.

I remember the Florida Panthers tried to do the same thing with Ovechkin in the 2003 draft.

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis Thread

Killing time at the dentist today, I drew out our 3-4 defensive personnel on paper today and came away mildly impressed.

RDE- Jenkins, NT- Bryant/Neild, LDE- Carriker
ROLB- Rak, ILB- Fletcher, ILB- Riley/Henson, LOLB- Kerrigan
FS- Otogwe, SS- Landry
CB- Hall, Barnes, Brandyn Thompson

*And this is without resigning our guys (Los) and before adding FA. Pretty good if you ask me.

No. Shanahan had never cared what anyone else thinks. The idea that he'd trade Down just to send a message to the fans is downright ridiculous.

I love how the freaking turds at ESPN do their draft breakdown for the NFC east and spend 6 minutes talking about Dallas, 30 seconds on the Skins, Giants and Eagles and then tell everyone if they want to see more about the Cowboys draft, go to espn.com/Dallas. They gave them a B- and us a C. Are you kidding me bro? The Cowboys draft sucked. We got the same guy we would have picked at 10, 6 spots later and turned it into 5 extra quality picks. That's some god damn strategery man. I hope Kiper gets his game show host Afro caught in his Flowbee during his next bi annual hair cut.

Actually, I'm leaning more toward re-signing Los. He can't catch a cold but he is a good cover corner who tackles well and plays physical.

Who exactly is gonna throw to these receivers? Rexy from his back? And who will open holes for our RBs? I can look past the RBs since Shanny has had success in this area in the past and I don't mind getting him the guys he needs to work his system. But so many WRs?

And of course the elephant in the room is still our QB situation. I now suspect we will target a QB in free agency. I find it hard to believe we'll go thru all of 2011 with just Beck and Rexy. And if we're waiting to draft our QB next year that's fine, but the whole world will know it. There will be no hiding our intentions whatsoever.

Anyways all being said I give them a B on the 2011 draft.
I hear what you're saying, and it's a fair critique. But let me offer an opposing viewpoint...

I figure Shanahan and Allen weighed the odds in the later rounds of the draft, and liked their chances better of catching lightning in a bottle with something this team has sorely lacked -- a weapon; an elusive playmaker with speed who can beat defenders to the endzone.

Perhaps they had more confidence in the offensive line that they've currently got, but less confident in the skill positions that they have. Maybe they didn't like what they saw "in the trenches" in the 5th round and beyond.

Just a thought anyway...

Or a cheaper more experienced corner like Ike Taylor.

I guess this will depend how much money he will want.

Hmm, that's ESPN for you, I swear they part own the Cowroids the way they continually heap unwarranted praise on those turds. On the other hand, Dan Patrick totally trashed their draft, and their organization in the most professional way today, and I loved every minute of it.

I think you're trying too hard to rationalize a simple concept, they kept trading down to acquire more picks for a team in dire need of players, simple as that.

Agreed. We need youth, and a lot of it. Also, despite trading down a lot, they actually did trade up to get Helu, so I certainly wouldn't say they were trying too hard to send a message.
