Re: Draft wrap-up 2013

I'm happy and excited about this year's draft class, especially getting Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo.

The Redskins grabbed a whole bunch of 3rd-4th round types because that's what this draft was made up us. Most teams that didn't pick in the top 20 are in the same boat.

If they had a do-over, I would point out that six really good football players got drafted right after Amerson, so I'd like to have gotten one of those guys instead. But from round three on the Redskins looked to be pretty much in their element, and got decent talent return.
What did you think of the Jordan Reed pick? Did Shanny, once again, outsmart everyone with that one?

Re: Draft wrap-up 2013

I like what we did but impossible to grade it right now.

Jordan Reed is a talented player who fits what we want to become.

It wasn't a pick that really got me excited and dreaming up ways the Redskins might use him, but it was a pick that made a lot of sense.

The biggest "under the radar" need on offense was what happens to the TE position if Fred Davis never comes all the way back to what he was, which can be a concern with achillies injuries. Jordan Reed might help answer that concern.

We (still) have only one healthy, starting-caliber OT on the team, Trent. The rest of the guys either 1) suck 2) are coming off significant injury and long in the tooth 3) have shown absolutely nothing.

Right now, we're in the same position the Eagles were going into the 2012 season, they had one legitimate OT (Jason Peters) and when he went down the offense was done for the year.

Several guys with first round talent that fell for a number of character and injury-related reasons. Talent is still there.
This looks like the last remaining piece of the puzzle. Given the FO excellent history of filling our other needs, current and future, I'm still hopeful our starting RT isn't on the roster today.

Obviously they think they can get by with Polumbus. I would expect them to address RT in 2014. Remember, this was the 4th ranked scoring offense with Polumbus at RT.

You know, Kiper is excellent at what he does which is evaluate college game tape, do great homework and background on them, excellent reporting from what he gets out of his sources about intangibles and project where they may go.

I don't think he knows squat about NFL rosters and depth charts from week to week (or even at this point). Not to knock him on that but he should stay in his lane.

When it comes to actual knowledge of the NFL, how teams match up and prognosticating where they will finish the season, I think I'd trust my mailman.

What team did you watch last year? Cause I watched the one that led the NFL in rushing yards, 5th in total offense, 4th in scoring with a rookie QB, rookie RB, backup TE & without their #1 WR for 2+months.

I guess Kyle is a freaking genius to pull that off with 4 linemen that either 1) suck, 2) coming off significant injury and long in the tooth (no clue who you're referring to there) or 3) have shown absolutely nothing.

It's not even worth it.

Re: Draft wrap-up 2013

Our offense was elite despite pass protection, not because of it. Not that I think anyone here really think TP is a starting RT or that our line was any good at pass protection. (Every stat available says otherwise i.e. TP was rated the worst tackle in football, RG took more hits in the pocket than any QB etc etc).

Per Kiper, I think he's hung up on the fact the NFCE was extraordinarily weak last year. Eagles fell to pieces with injury and lack of focus. All but three starters of the Cowboys defense were injured, and some offensive guys as well. The Gmen had SB hangover. My guess is every analyst expects the division to be a lot tougher this year.

...but the Eagles? Really?
