And all these dips**** that want to "trade down" simply astound me with their lack of logic. Yeah trade down. That will make us a lot better instead of taking the best available player (so long as its not a cb). Besides, you have to find someone to trade with you and this draft is not that deep in talent IMO.

2. Taking the "best player available" does not always equate to a successful draft pick. If this mock draft is correct, and the top two WRs and CBs are taken when #9 rolls around, the Skins (who don't have a second round pick, yet again) would absolutely be best served trading down a few spots to acquire an additional pick(s). Why would they make a stretch on the 3rd best CB or WR when they could get them later in the draft? And why would they simply opt for the "best player available"? What if the best player available is a RB, or an OLB, or a Safety? That, to me, doesn't make sense. Just my opinion.
You DO NOT..........repeat..........DO NOT....draft a "mediocre" cornerback with the #9 overall. What about that do you not understand. Unless it is proven that he is a pure shutodwn corner, which he is not, do you even think about it.

Re: DRAFT Nightmare!!!!

I can list for you just as many 1st round busts as I can 1st round gems over the last 5-10 years, so if you have a knack for scouting talent (i.e. Cooley) then you may want to trade down to get a few "Real Redskins" rather than an over priced star that may never pan out.

So just so we all understand what you're saying is that the "best" cornerbacks in this year's draft, Rolle and Pac-Man, are "mediocre" and therefore are not worthy of being the #9 pick

Is that what you're saying?

Re: DRAFT Nightmare!!!!

Cooley???????? Is that the best you can do? You homers act like he dominated. He was just another sad, putrid, overhyped part of our crappy offense.

Cooley didn't dominate, nor was he "sad" or "putrid". He may have been overhyped by Redskins fans desperately searching for a "Redskins guy"-throwback kind of player, but he was very solid for a rookie, regardless of whether he played in crappy offense-- which he did.

It's certainly debatable whether he was worth trading away this year's 2nd round pick, but he was definitely one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal year offensively.

I think a lot of people got excited by Cooley's potential, and whenever he was able to make a good play-- and he did make a few this past season-- it just elevated the enthusiasm some of us have for him, particularly since there was little else to be excited about.

He has a long way to go before he becomes a "dominate" player-- and maybe he never will-- but I think a big part of the reason that people are so excited about him is the fact that he is a genuine, humble, likeable guy-- much like Skins fan favorites of the past.

I don't think Cooley is an all pro or anything, but there were only 4 TEs that had more TDs than him, Bubba Franks, Tony Gonzales, Daniel Graham and Antonio Gates (he was tied with Marcus Pollard, Alge Crumpler, Jason Witten and Jeremy Shockey), personally I think that pretty good company as far as TEs go

Cooley should play TE not H-Back. They did not throw the ball nearly enough to him last yr.
