The "we should have takens"

I don't follow the stuff leading up to the draft closely, but every year, we take propsects people aren't familiar with and some fans respond in a burst of passion about we should have taken player X with the pick instead.

Now, I am a bit curious about these Players Xs that we should have taken and whether we should have taken the Player Xs over the players we actually took.

Now, I can recall Kerrigan(Cameron Jordan?) and Trent(Okung) getting that treatment for sure, but my memory is shaky on the other players, so I could use some help about this here.

Re: The "we should have takens"

They drafted the players they wanted and the players who were available that they thought would help this team, so I don't understand the point of this thread.

Could'of, would'of, should'of...is pointless. Let's focus on what we have and put this thing together.

We should have taken cousins in the third. But we were patient and got him in the 4th. Way to go skins!

So basically this thread is a repeat of what was said many times over in the draft thread. Check.

Gotta love the armchair GM/Scouts.

We could have had Ray Rice a few years ago too.

Okung was/is the better pick over Williams. This FO does some strange sh!t...but hey they could get lucky!

Kirk Cousins was projected to be drafted in the second round and many general managers had a 1st round grade on him. He was certainly expected to be drafted before Nick Foles, who was taken in the 3rd round by the Eagles. How Cousins fell to the 4th round no one knows. But getting him there was certainly a steal for the Redskins.

Re: The "we should have takens"

The Cousins choice was a great pick, New England style. Two or three years from now we trade him for a second or first round draft choice or four years from now he becomes a free agent and we get a third round compensatory pick for him. We are finally seeing the big picture in Washington. We save 1.3 million in cap space(cutting John Beck), and get a quarterback for the legue minimum. Good back ups get as much a 5 million. WAY TO GO SKINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: The "we should have takens"

I'm very happy with the 9 draft selections the Redskins came away with. Other than RG3, there was no other player that I wanted them to draft.
