Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects

You could probably argue either way whether Moore or Griffin enjoyed the better college career. They were both sensational. And if not for Cam Newton, they both might have won a Heisman.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects

Kellen Moore was a great college QB but, if you're going to go with a short QB, why not go with one who is faster, sturdier, more mobile, and has a better arm - namely Russell Wilson. I think Wilson is a much better fit for the offense we run.

Him or Trumaine Johnson from Montana, both might be gone though but its the 70th pick and Silatolu is rated 65th overall and Johnson is rated 70th overall. Another great choice would be Markelle Martin, saw him play and was impressed.
Round 4) Nate Potter... very good tackle, Kellen Moore was able to stay healthy for as long as he did mainly cause of this guy.
Round 4) Joe Adams... could go nate potter or joe adams but both are very good players. Adams in the senior bowl stood out, fumbled then responded very well which shows a lot about his mentality and heart.
Round 5) Ryan Broyles... amazing slot receiver would have gone in the top two rounds before injury. Supposedly recovering very nicely. Landry Jones wasn't the same without him, shows his value.
Round 7) Kellen Moore/Cliff Harris, just for a backup Cliff Harris has been dropping on a lot of boards but was impressive a couple of years ago.

Obviously the focus of this draft will be on the offense, and a lot of these are hopeful picks based on where they are projected to go but anything can happen on draft day. But I love the draft so hopefully we get quality players.
I like the way you think.

I'm a big Markelle Martin fan also, so I wouldn't mind if the Skins picked him in the 3rd Round.

Picking Broyles is a great idea. If Ryan Broyles is healthy, I wouldn't mind the Skins taking him in the 3rd either. He could be outstanding in the slot and he's also a PR. I wouldn't wait beyond the 4th Round to snag Broyles.

As far as OL are concerned, I think we could get a solid OG prospect as late as the 6th round. I like Potter, as well, but at OG. Other OG prospects I like who might be had in the 6th include Adam Gettis, Lonnie Edwards, and Stephen Good.

I'd like to see the Skins get London Fletcher's eventual replacement so the rook can learn from the master, so I'd target Tank Carder in the 4th Round. I think he'd make a very good ILB.

I'm hoping we can get Russell Wilson in the 5th Round.

Cliff Harris might be a good player to take a chance on in the 7th Round.

So:

1. QB RGIII
3. FS Markelle Martin
4. WR/PR Ryan Broyles
4. ILB Tank Carder
5. QB Russell Wilson
6. OG Lonnie Edwards
7. CB Cliff Harris

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects

Not saying that we should draft Russell Wilson, because I think drafting 2 QBs in the same draft creates more trouble then benefit on a team without an established QB.

But with that being said Wilson has been one of my favorite college QB prospects and here's some high praise from his pro-day:

Im not sure exactly where he will be drafted, but I think this guy could be as high as a second-round pick.

Everyone is scared of quarterbacks who measure under 6-feet, but Wilson looked absolutely great. This guy whistles the ball. they say he only had four passes blocked at Wisconsin this past year thats outstanding for a short guy. His stock is rising.

Do you mean in terms of a QB controversy? If so, I agree, but maaaaaaaaaan, he could be Schaub later on where he comes in for some mop-up duty and gets us a second rounder down the road.

I agree with the thought, just don't like the plan for a team with a rookie QB.
I liked the idea for the Packers who drafted Flynn and Brohm in the same class, but they could pull it off because the already had an established incumbent QB.
New England has Hoyer, Eagles have Kafka, Ravens have Tyrod Taylor etc.

But on a team with no established QB its inviting the inevitable comparisons.
And the sports media, especially here in Washington, are predisposed to create a QB controversy even where one really doesn't exsist.

Griffin will undoubtedly have some rough days during training camp, all QBs have them.
All it takes is for a reporter or two (heck with social media any blogger/forum member attending training) to see Griff miss a couple throws that the other QB makes then the snowball begins god forbid the other QB has a better day then Griffin.

I understand your point, but I think by trading what the front office did they've determined that Griffin (or Luck) is the established QB for the foreseeable future.
If we hadn't made the trade and either reached for Tannehill at 6 or took, say, Weeden in the 2nd then I agree it might not be a good idea to draft another QB in the later rounds.

But, the front office determination doesn't and cannot substitute for experience.
Without being an established and successful incumbent QB nothing tangible separates the QBs.
And without that established separation when QB1 has a bad day and QB2 has a great day it will look like QB1 is better then QB2.

I'm not saying that's gonna happen, but why create that scenario?

Also, there are only so many reps in a given practice.
And a rookie QB of the future is gonna need as many reps as they can handle and imo the whole staff should be singularly focused on preparing them to start.
And catering the system to make him successful.
Anything that takes away from that aim is a needless burden in my eyes.

I love the idea Russell Wilson in our offense. The only problem I have with him is that he's short. When I watch him play, he reminds me of Drew Brees. Why not settle our QB position this year by picking RGIII and Wilson, if we can?

I hope we draft him but there is no way he'll last beyond the 5th Round. It wouldn't be a shock to me if some team picked him in the 3rd Round.

IMO, RGIII, Rex (the mentor), and Wilson would be a very good QB situation for us.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects

I knew the Redskins would re-sign Grossman. Although Grossman seemingly deserved this new mandated back up role, I wanted them to pursue Matt Leinart again like they did last offseason. Of course the thing about Grossman is his tendency for committing turnovers.

This is why the Skins wanted Grossman back:

I know theyre going to draft a franchise QB, Grossman told ESPN 980 on Saturday night. If Im on the team, Im gonna help out that guy get up to speed, but Ill also be ready to play. Im gonna be a good soldier, and Ill be busting my ass to help him out.

I kinda feel bad for him. He knows he has no place in the NFL as a starter anymore (probably never really did). Oh well, I can't wait to see RG3 sling it next year.
