Re: footage on anthony mix?

Mix actually does have good college per play numbers, and I think it's safe to say he was undervalued by not getting drafted.

Of course...that means he probably should have been a 6th or 7th round pick.

Mix was a good pickup by the FO, but will probably never enter a season as the starter for any team, and certainly not a Redskins team that features two receivers that are locked up for the forseeable future, and looks to add another receiver high in the draft this season. Mix just isn't going to "make it" here, which doesn't mean the Skins can't expect him to contribute. I mean, he has two legs, two hands, and the ability to play special teams...so the Redskins should expect something from Anthony Mix.

Re: footage on anthony mix?

What do you guys think about Mario Manningham in the second round if no offensive line prospect impresses us at that slot? He's the only WR I would consider taking on the first day.

I think he's a pretty good prospect. I heard somewhere that he's best described as a poor man's Torry Holt and has the potential to be a playmaker in this league. He recently put away doubts about his speed by running a 4.38 at his pro day, so to the people who like to argue combine numbers, he's not a 4.5 guy.

Some people don't like him because he's not 6'1 or over, and I've heard that he's had character issues, but if it's another obstruction of justice guy I can live with it. Turns out that he might be making his way back into the 1st round, but I think it's still possible that he'll fall to us in the 2nd round.

He has what I look for in a prospect this early in the draft, good measureables to match college production, but I would still rather have Nelson. Obviously people are going to freak out if we draft him, but personally I would support it. Especially if we find a way to get 2 second round picks.

I'd say another 'small' guy that will get a look for the Redskins is Houston's Donnie Avery. Apparently though for some reason a guy who writes for the Buc's predicted that the Buc's would take him in the first round all because he ran a 4.38 at his pro day. Personally I think thats hog wash, and don't really see a guy who was seen previously as a 3rd round prospect jumping all the way up to the first round this late in the process. However he has decent size (5'11), production (1,400+ yards), and speed.

Re: footage on anthony mix?

I'm not sure what to think about the WR issue. I read a piece about Cooley on yahoo sports that said he would like to line up as a receiver (in some situations) and that it's been discussed among the coaches. I'm not saying this is a long term answer, but Cooley is about as productive as any guy on the field once he's got the ball in his hands. This could give Mix time to develop into an offensive player, or if we draft a receiver (not until the 3rd round I hope) it would give that guy time.

Monk is more talented than a lot here think he is.

ps- his draft stock has gone up and he is now projected to be a 4th rounder.

Re: footage on anthony mix?

^ Just wanted to add that drafting talent on the o-line, especially B. Albert, would give Cooley more ops to do this in the slot or even outside. Poor guy got stuck blocking way too much last season because of our decimated line. A healthy line with good depth opens up lots of options...

ok, ya'll can probably tell I'd like to see Cooley get more ops. Seriously, the dude fights for every inch out there and should be catchin passes not blocking d-ends. Just my 2 cents.

Yeah, but you never know. HB Blades was an EXTREMELY PRODUCTIVE college player that was projected as a fourth rounder. Turns out he ended up going to us in the 6th round. The later a guy goes in the draft the harder it is to project where he's going to end up.

Re: footage on anthony mix?

I actually saw the most extensive footage of Mix on some of the Jason Campbell youtube highlights from college. I would just watch some of those and look for the super tall guy i think he wore #89. Mix is a good prospect but we cannot afford to put too much hope on him we need to draft a WR with some size in the first 3 rounds. Wouldnt mind Monk at all but we need to invest in some solid depth towards the end of the draft for our lines.
