The redskins signed sixth-round draft pick Jim Molinaro it is on redskins.com.
Good thing there starting early. The real test will come with Sean Tayler. Hope they can get him into camp on time with out over paying like we do every time for players.
Position: Offensive Tackle/Guard
College: Notre Dame
Hometown: Bethlehem, Pa.
Analysis | Agility | High School | Personal
The former defensive tackle will be counted upon to man the demanding left tackle position as a senior … Moved to the offensive side of the ball as a sophomore, earning several starts towards the end of the 2002 campaign … Versatile blocker with experience at both tackle positions.
Positives: Has a thick, but firm midsection and hips … Displays good all-around muscle structure and has the frame that can add about 20 pounds with no lose in speed … Has wide, big shoulders and long arms … Shows good short-area quickness … Light on his feet, keeping a wide leg base to gain position … Makes good body adjustments on the move and is an effective pass protector who can sink his hips and drive defenders … Glides upfield adequately and has the ability to get the angle on the defender and seal the corner … Has the hip swerve to recover without losing his balance … Very active with his hands, going after defenders with aggression … Good with his kick slide, adjusting properly in the short area to prevent the outside penetration … Could shift inside to guard due to his ability to pull and lead around the outside as well as trap when redirecting.
Negatives: His quickness off the snap can be more effective (needs to play at a lower pad level as he tends to get a bit upright, preventing him from delivering explosion when coming up on the rise) … Has good leg strength as a drive blocker, but will overextend and lunge to make reach blocks when working in space … Better working on the outside, as he gets a little cross-legged when trying to make the inside cutoff … Can deliver a strong hand jolt when he keeps his arms in proper position, but needs to keep his hands inside the defender's chest to prevent penetration (awkward use of hands causes him to slip off blocks).
Timed at 5.01 in the 40-yard dash, 2.95 in the 20-yard dash, 1.88 in the 10-yard dash and 4.62 in the 20-yard shuttle … 7.62 three-cone drill time … 385-pound bench press … Bench presses 225 pounds 25 times … 500-pound squat … 32¾-inch arm length … 10 1/8-inch hands … Left-handed.
Attended Bethlehem (Pa.) High, competing in football for head coach Bob Stein … USA Today honorable mention All-America pick as a senior, recording 47 tackles (18 solos) with 1½ sacks, eight deflected passes and four batted passes in 1998 to help the team to a 7-4 mark … The three-year starter earned four letters in football as a two-way tackle, picking up first-team Associated Press big school all-state honors as both a junior and senior … One of five finalists for the Pennsylvania Lineman of the Year award as he recorded 46 tackles (17 solos), 2½ sacks, four stops for losses, 15 quarterback pressures and a pass deflection as a junior (named East Penn Conference outstanding offensive lineman that year) … Helped the team to the conference title as a freshman, competing as a tight end … Team captain as a senior, who was also a two-time all-conference and all-city selection … Named to 1998 all-area teams by both the Bethlehem Morning Call and Easton Express-Times … Chosen for McDonald's All-Star Classic … Attended Notre Dame summer football camp.
Economics, Sociology and Computer Applications major, enrolled in the Mendoza College of Business … Oldest of two children of Denise and James Molinaro, Sr. … Born James Anthony Molinaro, Jr., on April 27, 1981 in Hatfield, Pa. … Resides in Bethlehem, Pa.

Seems to me he's already received his rookie hazing (the alcohol-based shave cream incident), so now all he has to do is sign. I'd like to see him get to camp on time.
