Another Landry thread
 
[url=http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft07/columns/story?columnist=pasquarelli_len&id=2847400]ESPN.com - NFL/DRAFT07 - Pasquarelli: This year, teams are thinking safety first[/url]

The more I think about it, this is the player we should take no question. Here are my top Five reasons

1. He is going to be the best defensive player in the draft
2. Gibbs loves Golston and Montgomery and says they have bulked up and are really impressing in the offseason (yesterday at the draft meeting)
3. Him next to S. Taylor would be amazing to watch and make our secondary really good for a long time.
4. No DE is worth the sixth pick
5. Although A. Okoye will be really good I just think Landry will be better for our team.

All this in mind, the best option is to trade down, but in reality it most likely won't happen and we will pick at 6th.

We keep saying we need this youth injection along the line, but what about the safeties as well? We can't count on anyone besides Taylor back there really.

we need someone smart and less flashy to play along with taylor...i don't think the LSU safety fits the bill...draft the Louisville DT, he's smart, big, and could dominate.

Wrong forum....hmmm thread hell comes to mind.

1. Possibly, but not definite
2. I like Golston and I'm sure he and Montgomery are getting better but we need more depth
3. Or it could be agonizing with both players making the same mistakes. More importantly, will Landry invite Taylor over for dinner and to play X Box?
4. Like you said, we should trade down
5. See #1

If the team opts to pick the best defensive player available, Landry would be rated slightly ahead of Okoye by many in the organization. In that case the Redskins, among the most aggressive teams in pursuing trades and free agents, likely would turn to those methods to bolster the defensive line before the start of training camp (from the Article)

I think this is the best option (what Saftey is out there?)

u spelled safety wrong

Gibbs did say yesterday regardless of position that the best player available will be drafted. If Landry is at 6 and they do not trade i would be willing to bet that Landry is a skin. I think Landry would be a great fit but it didn't work with Arch. What I'm saying is that an all star safety tandem doesn't always work like it should on paper. This lesson has been learned many times in this organization. I don't think anyone drafted will start right away. Thats how GW is.

yes if he is there when we pick, We should go ahead and draft him. I don't really see any complete def. of player in this draft beside of him. Just thinking of him team up with S.Taylor is scary for any off to face. it didn't work with AA because he can't play the pass. But landry can play that pass and run. I feel like if our def. line is healthy, we really don't need to draft any of these def. lineman of this class with the 6 overall pick. Anyone feel diff holla back

Someone tell me how Landry is any different than Adam Archuletta?????? The guy is a great phyical talent, hes amazing in the box, hes a hard hitter....all that sounds familar.

What else sounds familar is that Landry is weak in coverage, and better utilized in the box...hmm that sounds like a similar 30 million dollar F*** up we made...

Landry is a great player, but we need a cover safety.

Re: Another Landry thread
 
I have heard from everyone that said Arch was a bad fit, that Landry will be a bad fit with Taylor as well. they say they (Taylor and Landry) are the same type of player. I had a hard time believing them about Arch in the beginning of last year, kinda hard to doubt what they are saying now.
