Re: And with the 6th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the redskins select...........

Redskins will trade up to aquire Robert Griffin III by out biding other teams

The redskins need a QB - desperately. Rex Grossman will not be the guy - he won't even be invited back to camp. I don't even know who john Beck is or even if he is an actual NFL QB. For all I know, he was some guy selling hotdogs when Kyle "discovered" him while "freshening up" in the Fed Ex men's room.

Redskins absolutely have the firepower to move up - the 6th pick this year....a second, a third and next years first.

This won't count, but I'll post it anyway....

Draft Countdown - Trade Value Chart

The war for the second pick that the Rams do not want will come with a price - a steep one. Other teams will look to trade up at the last minute, driving up the price even higher. Redskins can do without next years first - unless they nab a great prospect, there is no next year. Shanny and crew will will have plenty of time to watch the games on ESPN while they all look for work.

Trading up for Luck is out of the question. The Colts understand how important it is to have a franchise QB. Any deal for Luck would have to include all of Dan the man's money, a cure for herpes and the Washington monument.

This trade will actually involve at least three teams, I expect the Skins to trade pics/players with another team first (Minnesota?) before trading that pick along with this years second to the Rams (the Rams have Stafford and don't want Griffin).

Now, the thing about Minny, is they need a LT - skins will trade Trent Williams, who has undoubtedly fallen out a favor with the front office for a SECOND rounder. Redskins already have a suitable replacement even though no one knows his name - that's because Willie Smith is a football player - not a 'star.'

G.Bush 2012 Draft Profiles (Robert Griffin III) - YouTube!

The most important reason that this trade will happen, is that Dan Snyder cannot miss out on an opportunity to flex his mighty wallet muscle. I wish I had one......that is to say, I wish mine were a bit more well developed.

OK, maybe not.....a fan can dream, though, right?

Justin Blackmon looked like a young Terrell Owens out there last night. I'm not one for taking wr's early in the draft, but that guy looked like a man among boys last night. Wow!

Re: And with the 6th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the redskins select...........

I have been saying for quite a while that the draft this year is pretty deep with QB's. I would personally draft Blackmon from Oak St. He is by far the most dynamic and immediate impact playing coming out this year. (if we have the ability to draft him) If not we see what QB is there, but I have a feeling RGIII will be gone (cleveland). Not sure where Tannahill (Texas A&M) will go, but not sure he's worth top 10. I'd try to get Blackmon or maybe slide down a little and pick up Alshon Jefferies from S.Car. I think there are QB's we can get in the 2nd round to develop. THere are some FA out there that can play next year, and we wait to get Barkley. Big gamble here because if Shanny doesn't dramatically improve the W's he may not get a chance for a 4th year.

There is also Kurt Cousins from Mich St. He has a great arm, makes all the throws. He will probably be around mid to late 2nd.

Blackmon is a stud. If he fell to us at #6 I'd have no problem with taking him.

Interesting you and I agree on something, as we hardly ever do. Given your agreement on Blackmon, what QB would you target in the 2nd round (if thats what we do) or would you target a FA if the price was decent.

Or with the possible available FA WR, would you go after one of them aggressively and move up to get one of the QB's.

How about Blackmon at 6, Jayron Hosely CB VA Tech in 2nd, and Matt Flynn?

How about Flynn in free agency and Blackmon with #6? Hell, I like what someone else said about getting both Flynn AND RGIII. If they both pan out, great! We'll have a player that could garner multiple first round picks one day.

I could see us trading back up to grab Tannehill late in the 1st based on what SS has said.

Of the available FA WRs honestly none of them thrill me. Bowe talent wise is probably the big catch but I'm not really a huge fan of his.

The Browns do still have McCoy, and if they let Hillis walk, I think they'll be more concerned about upgrading WR or RB.
Plus you never know how his combine performance will affect his draft position. He could easily slide a little.

I don't think the Colts are as talent limited as they seemed early this year.
Curtis Painter is not a good QB by any stretch.
He's probably the worst QB in the NFL.
When Dan Orlovosky sparks an uptick in performance its a telling indictment on the previous QB.

Also, their defense was terrible and a portion of that blame goes to the coaching.

I still beleive Luck is in play and the Colts are listening to folks. Some team is going to break the bank on that pick.

Yeah I agree with Tannehill. He has played well all season, like his arm and ability to make all of the throws a NFL QB is required to throw. Played in a big time conference with major competition. I like the possibilty of Blackmon and Tannehill, or if Blackmon is gone...Alshon Jeffries from S. Car. He is a stud as well, just not the speed of Blackmon. Alshon is probably more realistic with the 6th pick. Carolina to me will probably take him or St Louis.

I dont see how Carolina can pass on him. With Newton those two could be a tandem for years. Plus Steve Smith has lobbied for years to get a #1 WR, that he'd be happy as a #2. (hard to believe)

The only problem I'd have with taking him is that it would mean that we once again are settling at the QB position. For me, anything less than Luck or RGIII out of this draft will be a huge disappointment.
