Let's not forget guys this is the time for smoke screens. I wouldn't be suprised to see us go WR or CB, but he could just be blowing smoke. I still think they're undecided.

I'm judging only by what people have said on here, but I'm liking Rolle if he is available (he should be).

Most people think the Titans are going Rolle. We'll see how that goes.

Very true. They get rid of one for another...

I've been convinced that we're not going after a wideout in the draft with the 9th overall pick. The Washington Times' latest article on the 'Skins leads me to believe we will in fact draft on defense.

I'm going to say it again, we're drafting Antrelle Rolle (if Adam Jones is off the board when we pick) with the 9th overall pick on draft day. I like the move. Any thoughts?
Why is everyone so high on Mike Williams? (I hope he isn't around for the Redskins to pick.)

If Redskins want to make a splash, trade up and get Braylon Edwards if they want the best WR.

If not, pick up Pac-Man Jones for corner depth and future. Not sold on Rolle. Or pick Troy Williamson, he is 6'1", 202 with speed. Or trade down and get a DE and 2nd Rd Pick if possible.

And what's with some Mock Drafts having the Skins pick Heath Miller, TE out of VA? Didn't they just draft a TE/HB last year? And traded up to get him? That logic escapes me....

Re: Gibbs Hints 'Skins Will Draft A Defensive Player with the 9th Pick

I'm as convinced as ever that we will not draft a wide receiver at #9. Gibbs doesn't particularly trust rookies on offense with much playing time anyway. Look how long it took to get Cooley consistent action in the starting lineup. Unless they're planning to get rid of either Thrash or McCants, there'd be no need to spend such a high draft pick on a player who simply won't see much action during the regular season.

I'll be cornerback or defensive end.

More proof that we need a GM. Tipping his hand again...
I love Joe but he needs to learn to shut his mouth.

Re: Gibbs Hints 'Skins Will Draft A Defensive Player with the 9th Pick

Look at the Skins track record for drafting CB's & you see that we have drafted the best CB's in the last 3-4 seasons. Teams are going to know that we are looking CB initially, no matter what smoke screen we are blowing around. The Skins & Titans lost Pro Bowl caliber CB's so it makes sense to see both teams looking CB with their 1st rd picks.

I still think there will be good WR's in the 3rd to bolster depth.

Chouns: problem is we have depth we just don't have a #1 type guy.

Beemn - our TD leader last year was a rookie, he must trust them a little bit!

I would select Pac Man Jones or Rolle, whoever is there when we pick, or trade down and get David Pollack and another pick.

That sounds pretty spot on cuz this is the point in getting close enough to the draft where u have to make others drafting around u think and maybe even squirm a bit to possibly sweeten trade up offers. If Williams is available when we pick even though we r decently stocked at wideout, there's practically no way in hell they wouldn't draft him unless they got an offer from a team to move up that absolutely knocked their socks off.

It's still too early to predict what exactly will happen.
