Among the current backs on the roster, and I'm including Hightower, no I'm not kidding. Have said it since last summer, the Shanahans love...LOVE Royster.

I like Royster. You are correct that he is not a breakaway back in any sense. But he and Helu together give us a nice smash and dash.

He averaged almost 6 per carry last year, just saying

Yeah forgot about Hightower, I know Shanny loves him. As long as his knee is right of course.

Limited because we don't have a full compliment of picks.
Its for a good reason though.

Mike Shanahan and Bobby Turner usually draft at least 1 RB every draft.
So yeah, they clearly want a RB in this draft because they always want to draft RB.

I think it will be a true open competition and they'll play musical chairs RBs til 1 back clearly separates himself.

I think Helu and Royster made big strides last year and have surpassed Hightower in ability to make the right cutback decision.

I think its will be Helu/Royster/Hightower RBBC with Helu getting 3rd down stuff.

Re: Who Will The Redskins Draft (Post Your Mock Draft Here)

All we're missing is a 2nd rounder this year. But we still have 7 picks overall.

We still have 7 picks. There are 7 rounds ergo 7picks = full compliment of picks.

Right, but having 7 picks overall is not the same as having a full compliment of picks 1 for each round.
We're missing the 2nd most valueable pick for team building therefore there are limited resources.
2nd round pick are core foundational picks that are expecting to contribute fairly quickly.

Re: Who Will The Redskins Draft (Post Your Mock Draft Here)

Calling the draft limited because of one pick seems like a bit of a stretch IMO.

Well to me saying 'all' we're missing is a 2nd round pick is underselling its importance.
The value of a 2nd round pick is greater then the value of all the picks from 4-7.

Re: Who Will The Redskins Draft (Post Your Mock Draft Here)

so we should trade all our other picks for a 2nd rounder?

A limited draft to me would be something like 2007 when we only had 5 picks, with no picks in rounds 2-4.

I'm not underselling the importance of the 2nd rounder at all, I've love to have it, but I'd rather have RG3.

Don't forget we have a 3rd rounder too, you left that out in your last point.
