I wouldn't lose it but it would have to be someone like Tavon Austin or Justin Hunter

Being that Mike Shanahan:

Loves drafting seniors
Players that have played in a bowl game
Picking guys in non BCS conferences
Loves SMU players
Drafts BPA of need

I think, should he fall to us, our first pick will be Margus Hunt, DE, SMU.

We don't need a strong safety. We need a monster at FS to shore up the last line of defense.

Re: Redskins 2013 Draft News & Rumors

Couple of things I wanted to mention;

1) This DJ Hayden guy. He's futured in this weeks SI (along with the Marcus Lattimore article) about his heart injury. They have a picture of him with a scar going from his collarbone all the way past his belly button right down the middle where they sliced him open. As if this injury wasn't bad enough luck, the article goes on to say:

Quote:
"surgeons operated to stop the bleeding, then started a whole-body blood transfusion. In case the repairs didn't take, doctors kept his chest open overnight. Hayden spent the next three days in ICU, suffering further injury when medicine that was supposed to go into his veins leaked onto his left wrist and hand, causing a burn that required a skin graft."
I'll admit, I don't want this guy. He's gone through a major surgery (not your typical ACL kind of surgery, but a heart surgery) for a freak accident that occurs very rarely, with most cases being in car accidents or in the field of battle. Whats to say this dude doesn't have a weak heart or soft veins that could burst next time an NFL RB trucks him? I'm staying away from this guy. Let him be a boom or bust to another team.

2) Mike Mayock had a conference call today. A couple of Redskin bloggers got their questions answered. Emmanuel Benton of proplayerinsiders.com asked Mayock about the 3 safeties whom the redskins may target, Baccari Rambo, Phillip Thomas and Duke Williams. Mayock said that Phillip Thomas is the best of the bunch calling him a 3rd rounder and starting FS, says that he's the best ballhawking FS in the draft. He said Rambo is a 3rd to 4th round guy but is explosive. He said Duke Williams has a medical history and is a late round pick in the 5th to 6th round.

A guy from SonofWashington.com called in and asked Mayock where he sees the Redskins going at 51. Mayock said safety, but if not he said that we could use a WR, CB, or DLineman.

Mayock was asked about Redskin target David Amerson, said that he's tall, stiff (b/c he's tall) and that he thinks he was bad this year because he was always looking to make the big play and reading the QB as opposed to the WR. Said that if he focused on WR he'd be a high pick.

Said that Poyer of Oregon St is better football player than athlete. Likes Gratz from UConn.

And guess who his number 1 CB is? DJ Hayden!

3) Then the thought came to me; what if the Skins got Phillip Thomas, Jordan Poyer, Baccari Rambo, and Duke Williams? I know it sounds impossible, but if you look at Mayock and other websites draft projections for those guys, its very possible, because only Jordan is the more sure fire 2nd rounder. Hell we could trade down and still stay in the 2nd and still have a shot at Poyer. That would be an A+ draft in my book.

Re: Redskins 2013 Draft News & Rumors

For DJ Hayden to be able to overcome the life threatening medical problem he had and get himself in position to be drafted by an NFL team is inspiring. Whether or not he comes to D.C., I wish him success in the NFL.

I think that Phillip Thomas would be a perfect fit for us at FS and I think he could start very early in his career. So, if he is a reach at #51, then the reach might be worth it.

Re: Redskins 2013 Draft News & Rumors

If we cant get Cyprien, Phillip Thomas is my free safety choice. I dont think Duke Williams is going in the 3rd or 4th, I think he's going 5 round.

Re: Redskins 2013 Draft News & Rumors

If we cant get Cyprien or any of the top safeties my choice is Swearinger, more physical than Thomas and has good ballhawk skills as well. Thomas cant tackle.

1.Veccaro 2.Cyprien 3. Swearinger (IMO )

Re: Redskins 2013 Draft News & Rumors

I look at it this way: hopefully Retard Jackson or B Merriwether plays strong S in 2013, but even if they cannot we have Doughty there. Given our (extremely) limited resources it may be a choice between adding a quality SS or FS, and the FS will pay much larger dividends. We desperately need improvement there.

If you ignore our limited resources and just focus on needs, the list grows long. RT, # 1 WR, NT, #1 CB, and yes, two starting safeties. Of those FS and RT are most important, but we haven't brought anybody in to address FS yet. Gotta think it's the priority now.

who's under contract for the SS position next year? If the draft is deep with SS this year, you should probably take one and put him on the bench with plans to give him that opportunity to start next year. I agree FS is a bigger need, but SS isnt far behind.
