1.5 Sean Taylor

3.18 Chris Cooley

5.19 Mark Wilson

6.15 Jim Molinaro

I gave it a B. Despite a great first round selection, and a contributor in Cooley, the late rounds left me scratching my head. Until some young bodies make it to our defensive line (thru trades or UDFA's), day 2 looks like a waste. Hopefully, I'm wrong.

Redskins_P 04-26-2004 08:40 AM

I also gave it a B. I think Cooley was a great pick in 3rd round.

RedskinPete 04-26-2004 09:04 AM

I gave it a B but the lineman that were picked up if they are as good as FO and Gibbs staff thinks is all right by me!! You NEVER can have too many O lineman!!! The more and more I hear about Taylor the better I like the pick and the more and more I hear Winslow talk I like the Tayor pick!!! Cooley is the more important pick because we are giving away high picks in a draft next year. He needs to be all Gibbs thinks he can be!!! I still think the undrafted free agents will be a big deal for the Skins. Gibbs has alway found a starter or a very good back up here so I hope he dose his thing and in a big way!!!

Spearhead 04-26-2004 09:11 AM

I gave em an A
only b/c I think Gibbs did a great job with very few picks and S.Taylor will be a punisher

Coulda given em a B, but I'll trust Gibbs about Cooley, and respect the idea that we never have "too many" Olineman. Also trusting that there weren't any DL players that impressed him enough late in the draft.

so it's an A- but an A of faith.

MTK 04-26-2004 09:11 AM

I gave it a B.

Taylor is an A+ instant impact type player.

Cooley seems like a total Gibbs guy, a heady player who should fit right into the h-back mold. I'd give him a B.

Wilson seems like he could be a steal and in the hands of Bugel could be a starter in a year or two. C+.

Molinaro is our project pick of this draft. Incomplete.

Ade Jimoh Fan Club 04-26-2004 09:19 AM

I gave them an "A" for several reasons:

1) I have drunk the Joe Gibbs koolaid and trust his decisions to be the best for the Skins.

2) I am assuming that the Samuels for Will Smith rumors are true - that would rock - and explain the late round OL picks.

3) Sean Taylor is a st-ud!

4) They did not draft any cornerbacks to compete with Ade Jimoh!!

I gave them a "B".

Sean Taylor will be a star.
I like the comparisons of TE Cooley to Clint Didier. This was before the Redskins picked him.
I like the size of the O-lineman. Bugel picked them and I trust his ability to mold them into Hogs.
We will get d-lineman after the June 1 cuts.
Our current d-lineman are decent. New Def. Coordinator will be the diffrence maker.

Carnage 04-26-2004 10:18 AM

I gave them an A because I am counting the free agents we traded our picks for. Taylor, Cooley, some hogs, Brunnell and Portis is a good pull.

backrow 04-26-2004 12:16 PM

Don't forget Portis, Brunnell and the DT's picked up last year!

SKINSnCANES 04-26-2004 12:20 PM

I went with an A because this years draft yielded Sean Taylor, Clinton Portis, Mark Brunnel, Chris Cooley....and a few o and d linemen. We didnt go about it the way most teams do but we have impact talent that can contribute this year. Sean Taylor is going to be great and the move for Cooley makes me think he wanted him more than Winslow anyways. We drafted a bunch of blue collar guys that bring their all week in and week out.

Spearhead 04-26-2004 12:33 PM

completely agree SKINSnCANES
as an offseason it's amazing how many areas have been upgraded- including the secondary which was probably a big concern for all of us when we lost Champ

but that's why they get an A for this draft- Gibbs is apparently on a 2 year plan and his strategy this offseason showed it on Off and Def (ok maybe not dline completely but we'll see)

JWsleep 04-26-2004 01:40 PM

I gave em a B, but it's contingent. If one of the O-line prospects pans out (I mean gets some time as a decent backup in the next 2 years), then it's an A. Taylor is the real deal, and the right pick over KW II (Thank you coach Williams!). Cooley looks like a Joe Gibbs type player with all the tools to be our new H back. The 2nd rounder was a bit high, but if he starts in the next two years (which I bet he will), then it's a great pick. Since Bugel is one of the great developers of o-linemen, either of these could be a great pickup. Remember Joe Jacoby!! It makes a lot of sense to give Bugel some players to work with. That's what he does. So, maybe it's an A. But I'll be cautious yet.

BossHog 04-26-2004 01:52 PM

I give a B only because we had four picks.

Phat Hog 04-26-2004 02:00 PM

I gave them a B/B+ because they did not draft any DL players even in later rounds. Maybe they have their eyes on the UFA market.
