Well said, if you read this post you shouldn't IMO have a problem with the Cousins PICK.

Re: The "we should have takens"

Other than RGIII they went in many different directions than I thought they would (or even should) but at the end of the day, I'm pleased with our draft. We got our QB, we added OL depth, we drafted a potential replacement for Fletcher and got some competition for DB on the back end of the secondary. I wish they would have addressed RB and WR but I'm a skill position guy. I would have liked to have seen us address the slot WR position with a Joe Adams or Devon Wylie but we've allocated assets to that position in free agency so let's see what they turn into.

The Redskins most certainly did address the running back position. They drafted that kid named Alfred Morris in the 6th round.

Re: The "we should have takens"

the one that really comes to mind, legitimately, is we should have taken santana moss over rod gardner. moss went 1 pick after rod "50/50" gardner.

See, I looked at RB totally different. That was the one area I felt happy with what we had. Hightower, Royster, and Helu provided a good mix of styles that seemed to work fine last year. Maybe pick up a few guys through UDFA, but that's about it.

One of the things I find myself doing is keying in on "Mel's Best Available" -- like when Bobby Massie was available for awhile and I began thinking he's who we need. Then you start to wonder why Allen and Shanny didn't take him because obviously tackle was a need. In the end though, every team is going off their own board, and sometimes they agree with Kiper and sometimes they don't. Doesn't mean they whiffed, or "reached" if the guy you happen to focus in on wasn't selected.

I wished we grabbed DB Dennard from Nebraska. He was listed as a 2nd rounder, and dropped to 7th after a bad weekend. Nice get by the Hoodie.

Re: The "we should have takens"

Chris Polk. I like our RBs but I think this kid has got the goods. i know about his health concerns but hell we could have got him with a seventh.

Others would have been Brandon Mosley OT but I think they got a guy they really like in Compton so they know better.

Other than that I wish we would have gotten a DT late. It was a rare deep draft for DTs which means we may have gotten value late. Josh Chapman, Alabama hung around and Loni Fangupo went undrafted.

Re: The "we should have takens"

I felt like the Eagles pretty much got the "Who's who?" of all picks second round and above. I remember checking the draft and the best value pick and suddenly the Eagles would end up with it.

I'm ready for their time in the spotlight to end.

We've been so bad for so long, it's their turn now.

Re: The "we should have takens"

I wish we would have pushed harder for Vontaze Burfict ILB of ASU to come to Washington. That kid is a beast. He went undrafted to the Bangles.

I know hes a walking convict, however place him under Fletcher to groom him and if he steps out of line let Fletcher make the call to cut him. Very low risk, huge reward.

I would post a youtube video, but cant figure it out. Take a look. He makes alot of eye popping plays. You will also get to see why he went undrafted.

Re: The "we should have takens"

I'm WAY better with Chase Minnefield. Low risk, ULTRA high reward. We have a draft next year and we can't expect to fill all needs in a single draft. Burfict is one of those guys where MAYBE he works out, but to think he's going to suddenly be a different person is pretty insane.

Anyone with wives/girlfriends can attest to this, but while you can change some practices and/or habits, you can't change who someone is. It's like telling the rain to stop.

Re: The "we should have takens"

more often than not red flags haunt careers. m kelly's knee, vince youngs immaturity, pac mans personal problems, etc. every now and then someone's good enough to overcome their issues (randy moss's selfishness, LT's "sugar" habit) and produce great results, but usually it doesn't happen (and even when it does, the problem is still there).

missing on guys like massie may be a mistake down the road, but this staff seemed to put a LOT of weight into iowa and smu players and guys they saw at the senoir bowl. both of the late dbs run 4.4 or better too, so they're not going to be speed limited.

this staff also said that next year's draft is deep in cbs/ots, so they weren't going to overdraft this years limited talent when they'll be able to get better value next year.

i'm sorry polk went to the fleagles over us, but i don't think it'll amount to much once hightower resigns.

Re: The "we should have takens"

I agree with you on Burfict. He even had problems in High School or he would have probably been playing for USC instead. On the other hand, he did also have two great years as a freshman and a sophmore before he started to screw things up again.

Anyways, when you consider Fletchers career and all the things he had/has to go through to contantly prove himself along with his no nonesence personality, it makes me wonder if he could have gotten through that kids head. Let him know his football career is maybe 1 or 2 cuts from competely ending.
