I feel the same way.

In the first round, you're drafting someone who you think can be a quality starter on your team right away, regardless of position. First round QB's are the exception as they may not start right away in many cases for what I think are obvious reasons. First round picks, other than QB's, must start immediately and they must improve your team. Just my opinion.

Personally I would keep Culliver for next year. Can never have too many corners.

Then stick him on the PUP until he is ready to play.

Re: Drafting a cornerback in the first round.

culliver already said it's a two year injury to get back to 100%, he's already had one of these. we may keep him anyways, because you need 2-3 good corners, and he's still a good corner.

Re: Drafting a cornerback in the first round.

Too much dead money this year to cut and it makes zero sense to cut him especially after our problems a CB last year.

Culliver is absolutely 100% back this year.

There is a clause in Culliver's contract that voids it if he is suspended. The clause could minimize the dead money. He has a serious knee problem- no guarantee he will be 100% anytime soon, if ever again.

Update; per Washington Times all guaranteed money can be voided if Culiver is suspended

It would be 3.75 million.

I don't follow.

...At this point I view the draft like a lot of others on the Warpath.
We need to pick defense in the first round.
The priority that lies therein is debatable, understandably so.
If we get a hot shit corner back then its all cool.
I don't understand nor agree with the 'we need to pick defense in the first round'. Let me pose this question.

What do you do if a WR or RB or OL is clearly the BPA at pick 21? Are you gonna pass over the better prospect in order to draft a player on defense?

Cripes...this isn't supposed to be that complicated.
Just talk about drafting a cornerback in this thread.

And just how shabbily would you like the Redskins to treat their players?

The incident for which Culliver was eventually suspended occurred one year before the Skins signed him. The Redskins knew that he might be suspended once the case was resolved in the courts. For the Skins to cut him now that he's injured and use a technicality to void his contract would be lower than whale shit.

The only caveat I have 4 best player available isn't really a caveat. But best player available applies not only to the drafted prospect but to the players on your own team. Meaning if the player you have on your team is better than the player that's available in the draft then that player cannot be the best player available because he's not better than the player that you currently have. But for me that is the only caveat the best player available.
Agreed. There are three postions we will not draft. LT, RG, or RT. They may draft a LT and move him to LG, but we are not going to draft a new LT. We have to many holes to fill.

I have no issues drafting a DB/S in the 1st round.

They would be cutting him because he did not play like a shut-down CB. The NFL is not a charity. Culliver agreed to the contract. Paying $9.2 million to an average CB is foolish.

Re: Drafting a cornerback in the first round.

starting CBs make a lot of money, he is a starting cb. i don't think he played up to the contract, but if you cut him, you gotta replace him and you might end up paying him and the new guy next year. i don't know if the skins would void the deal, if they do, then it's simply a matter of if they see a FA replacement they believe they can get.

i think we'd draft a db at some point regardless.
