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

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.

Re: Redskins 2013 Draft News & Rumors

I hope the defense picks up where it left off last season with these improvements:

1) Better FS performance.
2) Better pass rush with Rak and (hopefully) Jenkins coming into his own.
3) Continued and even improved scheming to create pressure and put the offense on its heals. ILB and DB blitzes are critical to our defense. If we go back to just hoping OLB pressure will do it the defense will take a big step backward. Fletcher is key to the scheming IMO.

I think if we add a starting caliber FS this defense can approach top 10, but it requires a lot of scheming to maximize our talent. We have very solid talent, but not as a tradition 3-4 defense because we still lack the NT or any d lineman who consistently draws in two blockers OR gets into the backfield to create pressure.

Re: Redskins 2013 Draft News & Rumors

Could'nt agree more Goat. Strong FS play, better pass rush with the kind of disguised blitzing we started playing in the second half of the season and our defense should be much improved. Would'nt be surprised at all to see Jenkins take a big step forward this year.

Houston CB D.J. Hayden nearly died during a November practice, when a collision tore his inferior vena cava — the vein that carries blood from the lower half of one’s body to the heart.

If Has stays creative with the scheme, the additions of the players coming back from injury, solid draft, and I would assume another couple of additions we will be solid this year on defense.
