Moses at 34 would be an absolute steal. Few players at 34 would make me happier than him. My only worry at this point is he could easily go mid to late first. Still a starter at RT and a more than viable backup at LT would see me singing for seemingly no reason.

This is probably why they say you need to stay true to your board- to make sure that you're basing your decision based on a well thought-out plan.
I do believe they have a thought out plan, I would put odds on dropping back at least 1 time maybe 2 times and getting the best tackle available. Barring a true steal at 34 I will be shocked if we do anything other than that. I also think that there will be alot of interest in pick number 34. I don't know that the second trade down will happen, or would be worth it, regardless of how deep this draft is.

ROUND 2
1. HOUSTON TEXANS

2. WASHINGTON REDSKINS

(3-13) Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama: An undersized offensive line was pushed around too often a year ago.

The fan's view of Polumbus vs. what the coaches think of him differs greatly.
Which I don't really understand, we have seen him play so poorly at times.

I do like that we have tried to upgrade the interior. That is our biggest weakness.
Maybe if we get a decent RG, tp would look better

Polumbus is a good run blocker that's what the coaches see that I think we fans discount. The problem IMO is that he is a terrible pass blocker, and maybe Gruden is willing to accept that they have to give him help.

If we are going to move to more of a passing attack though,
shouldn't we upgrade there?

Re: 34th Overall Pick

Why do we rarely talk about Compton taking over at RT?

Because he rarely deserves it?

I dont buy it. I think our D as a whole is a good run stopper. I dont think Polumbus could stop a puppy with a bazooka.

Sorry about the negativity surrounding our o-line, but Compton and Polumbus dont make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I did see an article a couple of months ago that at least offered a refresher on Compton but in terms of press among fans theres not much go on, especially considering that hes a 6th round pick. If I find it I'll post it later. In the meantime heres a small report from camp last year.

From a fans point of view though they see no coaches, beat reporters, or even bloggers touting him (which given his lack of game film is understandable). Most of his press seems to be simply listing him as an option next to LeRibeus and Gettis but not much beyond that:

Washington Redskins begin offseason workout program Monday - The Washington Post
Quote:
Redskins used three draft picks in 2012 to select guards Josh LeRibeus (third round), Adam Gettis (fifth) and tackle Tom Compton (sixth). But none of those three have logged more than a few snaps in the last two seasons combined

Quote:
The Redskins do have three young prospects — 2012 draft picks Josh LeRibeus (guard, third-rounder), Adam Gettis (guard, fifth-rounder) and Tom Compton (tackle, sixth-rounder) — who remain on the roster, but have rarely played.
Bruce Allen Off To Good Start As Washington Redskins Decider « CBS DC
Quote:
Young backups Josh LeRibeus, Tom Compton, Adam Gettis and Mo Hurt should realize that this offseason is their time to make a move for a starting spot since every job other than that of Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams should be up for grabs
Re-examining Washington Redskins' needs: offensive line - ESPN
Quote:
Is Tom Compton in the mix? I think we’ll find out more after the draft, based on what the Redskins do – or don’t do.
I think you guys get the point but for the record there are at least two more of these type of quotes I could have added here

On top of that fans at least see right now that the team seems to seriously consider selecting a RT early in the upcoming draft not to mention a couple of feelers on free agents, most notably Donald Penn who obviously ended up signing with Oakland.

I guess as a fan base all we really know of him is this; based on draft day reports we know he's strong as an ox and at the very least he's been deemed good enough to keep in the mix, making the final roster last year after being kept on the practice squad for the majority of his rookie season.

Bottom line in regards to most 6th round picks, a lack of information is deemed a bad sign among fans. Weather or not thats actually the case remains to be seen.

Update: This appears to be the article I saw earlier in the offseason but it appears to just basically be slightly longer version of the "The Ballard of [the Unproven] Tom Compton." Now avaialable on I-Tunes

Side Note: I think that I just set the 2014 offseason record for mentions of Tom Compton in a single post, comment, or article. Beating out even the Compton 2014 Happy New Year Family Newsletter
Quote:
"Tom is doing great staying on the roster of that Maroon and Gold football team, and will probably compete with his teammates next year to stay on the team so he can collect an oversized welfare check while the rest of the family actually works for a living in the oil fields of South Dakota. Go Tom we're rooting for you, you lazy bastard."

Re: 34th Overall Pick

I think my preference would be to trade back a couple spots with a team looking to move up for a QB.

Also Gruden's RT at Cinci was a former 1st round pick. So I can't see him being content with Polumbus
They're obviously looking to upgrade if possible. I just don't think they see it as a dire need like the fans do.
