I didn't know that. Well, I guess Dirtbag was right. My apologies, DB.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

if anyone from the first round falls to us, regardless of who it is, we'd be silly not to give them carefully consideration. especially if it's an OT or defensive player.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

Remind me to kick Roger Godell's ass for pushing the draft back two weeks.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

Do we know of anymore prospects visits lined up this week or next?

Kinda hope we take a good look at safety Jimmie Ward.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

From what Redskins insiders like Chris Russell are saying and putting that together with their pre-draft visits, it looks like the Redskins are targeting a pass rusher with the 34th pick.

I think they know if Orakpo has a great year he will be hard to sign. Then a year later Kerrigan will want a big contract.

Im glad we are thinking down the road, but amazes me we dont take that same strategy with the Secondary or O-Line.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

If we do draft a pass rusher at #34, it will be obvious the plan this year is to go balls out getting after the QB and trying to get by with an average at best back end. I say hell why not? Other teams have done pretty well with that approach.

You can fix everything over night, but loading up on the pass rush is an easy fix to a lot of problems.

I don't understand why so many think that if we take a pass rusher at 34, that spells the end for Orakpo, as the Giants, Panthers, and Seahawks have shown, you can never have too many pass rushers. Plus pass rusher doesnt have to be an OLB

Re: 34th Overall Pick

Generally speaking, I don't think you find many impact pass rushers at the top of the 2nd round. Personally I doubt we go in that direction there.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

I don't mind getting a pass rusher at 34, but it shouldn't be at the expense of foregoing the draft board. In order words- yeah take a pass rusher if he's best player available.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

... But the problem becomes- how do you compare players at different positions?

Thats how Im reading it. Skins shouldnt reach just to grab oline or secondary. If a pass rusher grades out head and shoulders over a Tackle, by all means take them. If we do grab a OLB, I think it does spell the end for Orakpo. There is alot of differing opinions in the FO on Rak and his abilities, Skins could have easily signed him if they felt he was the future.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

Just thinking about it- staying true to a draft board isn't as simple as it sounds. What if you're the Redskins and bpa is a wr on your draft board (by a wide margin) in both the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Do you stay true to your board no matter what?
