Snyder sighted at Calvin Johnson Pro Day!!!
NFL Network just reported Snyder being seen at Johnson's pro day. Could this mean we're thinking of drafting up? Why would Snyder be there, and what about our defense? It's so uncommon for Snyder to attend a pro day. Maybe the Skins think a kick ass offense will keep the ship afloat?

Re: Snyder sighted at Calvin Johnson Pro Day!!!
I think it would be REALLY hard for us to trade up since we don't have any draft picks.

Re: Snyder sighted at Calvin Johnson Pro Day!!!
This new and improved rumor makes 99% no sense just because we don't have the ammo. I will say that this guy probably should go #1 overall. He is the definition of can't miss prospect. I think the Redskins are doing a great job of confusing the entire top 15 in the draft of what we might do and I like it. It seems that the whole decision making contingent from our team was there today.

Maybe the Browns will take Archuleta, Lloyd, and a disappointment to be named later.

Trade Up???? That makes no sense.
I'm sure even Danny boy understands we need D help, and it appears to me we can take care of our few needs in the draft. Our offense is in fine shape. Strong D can compensate for fair to middlin offense.

Re: Snyder sighted at Calvin Johnson Pro Day!!!
Here's one thing I firmly believe, If the Skins thought that Johnson would help the team get into the playoffs in 07' they'd bet the farm. (That includes next years draft picks.) The defense wouldn't get consideration until next year. I don't agree with the thinking, but its certainly not an out of reach theory.

Re: Snyder sighted at Calvin Johnson Pro Day!!!
im sure its standard procedure to check out all the top prospects when u have the #6 pick...you have to put these guys somewhere on your board, it doesnt mean we are getting him relax

Re: Snyder sighted at Calvin Johnson Pro Day!!!
rumor, rumor, rumor. just following protocol for having such a high pick

Re: Snyder sighted at Calvin Johnson Pro Day!!!
There is no way we trade up in this draft!! Believing otherwise is ubsurd. It is common practice for a team with a top 10 pick to interview/scout all players in the top 10/15. We're over a month away from the draft and we will see players stock rise and fall, it's just the intelligent thing to do. We're playing poker with all the other teams as far as draft intentions, trust me I've been to the last 3 NFL drafts. The Danny is just trying to get out of town for a breather after the nanny fiasco. C'mon people get a grip!

If I had a private jet to jump on whenever I wanted to, I would go watch Calvin Johnson work out. The dude's a freak. But we have nothing to trade up with. All reports have been and will probably continue to be we're trading down for MORE picks, not up for less. We're so draft depleted as it is...

Re: Snyder sighted at Calvin Johnson Pro Day!!!
we need a new owner.

Check it out.
Mike Shanahan has been rumored to have offered to swap 1st round picks with the Redskins, plus give them possibly 2 more first day picks AND a conditional late rounder for 08, PLUS Dre Bly. (I've even heard it without mention of Shawn Springs being involved.)

True? Who knows, but certainly enough rumor mentioning all of the above. Where there's smoke, there's likely fire...

Now, Mike Shanahan clearly wants something in the top of round one.
Bly isn't happy, despite what his agent says. He didn't get any money, he's on a one year leash having to prove himself worthy of a payday again, and he's to the point in his career where one more year severely decreases his negotiation power.

Now we've got supposed cooling on the trade talks, Bly's agent is playing nice guy. ("You catch more flies with sugar" approach. He wants Bly to get the payday Snyder reportedly promised him. Nice commission, that. So he makes nice in hopes of making everyone relax and shake hands on the trade.)

So, you're the Redskins. You want this deal, I would assume, You'd be stupid to not want it. So why hasn't it been done? Odds are it's because Denver is nervous, probably think their boy goes before 6. Maybe they're considering a deal elsewhere. BUT, elsewhere they likely don't have the chip of Bly to throw in the pot. At this point you have to figure if the trade is going to be made, Shanahan is going to watch the first few picks on draft day and gage if and where he should try to move.

So what could Denver want? I'd say Calvin Johnson would make a nice replacement for Rod Smith, and a nice young stud receiver to bring along with Jay Cutler.

So, Snyder makes like he's interested and shows up at Johnson's workout.
Hmmm. Maybe Dan wants this guy? Who knows, I don't. And neither does Shanahan. Johnson is the type of player that could warrant a "best player on the board" selection regardless of need.

Dan gains possible leverage. Or not. It may cause Shanahan to tip his hand a little, or perhaps even attracts another potential trading partner for the Redskins.
All it costs him is a walk around a guy's workout.

Same as JaMarcus Russell. It casts doubt on what we're truly wanting to do. Buys us a little negotiating power.

Re: Snyder sighted at Calvin Johnson Pro Day!!!
Can we just please stop talking about Calvin Johnson being drafted by the Skins? We don't need any more receivers especially trying to trade up for one is absolutely ridiculous.

Re: Snyder sighted at Calvin Johnson Pro Day!!!
well its part of the nfl.. you try and bluff someone to thinking you are interested in someone they might want and the might give you the house for that pick to get the guy they want.. cant hurt.. it in no way means that the Skins are going after these guys at all, just throwing up a smokescreen and making other teams think and wonder who we really want.
