i think the wr, standeford, from purdue will atleast be on the practice squad and i think strother has a solid chance to make the special teams squad and maybe even a backup in the lb squad.

that is an easy one. Jarrett Payton from Miami, he is already on the Titans and will have a good career.

i think he meant on the skins, but that is a good choice for an udfa who could make a big impact this year.

I would go with DT Ryan Boschetti out of UCLA. At 6'4, 305, he's got pretty good size, and he's playing at a position that's one of the biggest question marks for the Skins. The starting spot next to Cornelius Griffin is pretty much wide-open; though Jermaine Haley, Brandon Noble and Joe Salave'a certainly have an inside track. But nobody really knows if Noble will make it all the way back from his injury, and Haley and Salave'a certainly aren't superstars. Boschetti certainly has a fighting chance here, unlike most of the other UDFAs the Redskins have signed.

thanks joe, I didnt really even know we had that guy. Mabye he could step in. Isnt 305 considered small for a DT? Im askign because isnt Griffen 300 and people call him small? If thats the case we would have a small interior. But before I go on ill wait to here if 300 if considered big,small or average for a DT.

Size is relative to the position. It really depends on what type of interior lineman you're looking for. If you're talking about an anchoring nose guard, then 300 lbs would be a little small. You generally want those guys to be around 320 lbs or more. They don't need to be terribly athletic-- just big enough and strong enough to be a blocker-magnet. Think Sam Adams (6-4, 335) or Ted Washington (6-5, 365).

However, if it's quickness and penetration you're looking for, 300 pounders are generally more ideal. While not the biggest guys in the middle, these guys are by no means the smallest, either. La'Roi Glover of the Cowboys, for instance, is a mere 285 lbs-- about the same size as a lot of defensive ends. If you look at the Eagles' roster ([url="http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/team/default.jsp?sortBy=title"]http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/team/default.jsp?sortBy=title[/url]), you'll find that their heftiest lineman is Hollis Thomas, at 306 lbs. Their two starters, Darwin Walker and Corey Simon, are both under 300 lbs (294 lbs and 293 lbs, respectively). It all depends on what you're looking to do with your interior linemen in the defensive scheme.

But if I had to choose an ideal combo, I'd go with the Raiders' new duo of vets: Washington and Warren Sapp. The 365-lb Washington will open up attacking lanes for the smaller (6-2, 300) and quicker Sapp, while protecting his linebackers from blockers. It will interesting to see how much damage that pair can wreak this season.

yea that new Raiders DLine is going to be sick next year. Lets see the Broncos plug in any running back and run on them.

Thanks for the info joecrisp.

Hopefully Strother, he made some big plays for UNM, and I'm sure he'd be a great special teamer.
