Peter King's draft notes
 
[B]BEST EXAMPLE OF AN OWNER LEARNING HOW TO OWN:[/B] Washington's [B]Dan Snyder[/B] refusing to mortgage the future and trade every pick of value in 2008, which is what he'd have had to do to get [B]Calvin Johnson[/B] from the Lions. Smart. And [B]LaRon Landry[/B] was the top defensive player on Washington's draft board.

And [B]H.B. Blades[/B] going in the fifth? The Redskins stole him. Just stole him.

I agree there. I thought Blades was projected waaaaaaaaaay earlier than that.

Blades sounds like he could be another player in the mold of Fletcher, and he'll have the chance to learn from one of the best directly. Gotta like that situation. Plus, how can you hate a LB with the name Blades? That would be a sweet jersey.

I actually like a lot of what we did with the little we had. I was depressed to see all these above average DTs drop to the third and fourth rounds though and we could do nothing to stop it.

Either a Redskins cheerleader give King a handjob or a FedEx vendor hooked him up with free brats because he's actually shown the Skins some love lately.

There is a serious amount of mis-directed.....wierdness running around the WP today.
I personally cannot be pissed off when we snatched up the "Best Defensive player" in the draft. The later rounds have potential as well. As you say MK, how can you not love the name of Blades as a LB. I am confident, the Skin's are looking to find a D-lineman to make a run at before season as well. I have HUGE RESPECT for the Dan to reign in his instincts.
Now.......MIAMI has reason to be P.O.'d. They are crucifying the staff on the airwaves locally as a result!

LOL. I'd probably say that the latter happened......

I guess my boy Khary campbell could be heading out the door if Sartz and Blades make the team. I would have preferred that we addressed our O-line in those late rounds.

i am going to just say what i planned on saying when i saw the thread and before i read it.... F... peter king and all of SI.



I can't post this just this second because "the server is too busy at the moment" so while i wait i will just type. I've been up all night and i am tired. I have classes till 5ish so I'm going to be dead tired. I do have a plan though.... I might just come back and sleep all day and wake up tomorrow morning. That sounds like a plan.

Damn server is still too busy to let me post... I am stunned by what PK said but he is right. We just did what most teams did, we just drafted the best player with our spot in the draft.

I think we'll address the O and D line depth with the undrafted rookie FAs....

[QUOTE=JDALY27;304809]Yeah but O-line can't play special teams. Blades and Sartz should be instant performers on Special Teams for us.[/QUOTE]

Yeah but Khary campbell's middle name is "Special Teams"

And while H.B. Blades might be a cool name. A cooler name is LB Anthony Trucks

"And H.B. Blades going in the fifth? The Redskins stole him. Just stole him."

I think a few years from now we will all be pretty happy with this pick. The guy is going to be a playa if he can avoid the injury.

[quote=SmootSmack;304795]I guess my boy Khary campbell could be heading out the door if Sartz and Blades make the team. I would have preferred that we addressed our O-line in those late rounds.[/quote]I wonder how many LBs we are going to take into the season. If we take 6, Campbell might get the boot. But if we keep 7, then he can stick around and continue to be valuable on special teams.

I like the use of the late rounders on linebackers. Thats where the value was and its one of the few positions that you can get starting caliber players on day 2. We have a plethora of average defensive linemen, what we needed to do was add a young stud to that group (still a need). Adding 2-3 late rounders would have done nothing. My beef is with the first round pick.

I wanted Speath, but he went early, so we got incredible value on Tyler Ecker. If his potential is the next Robert Royal, I'm OK with that.

You missed the top point by PK about the draft. It seems like the media views Snyder as a kid who didnt eat all the candy for once lol
-----------
a. Why didn't Washington trade up to get Calvin Johnson? "[B]LaRon Landry[/B] was the best defensive player on our board,'' owner [B]Dan Snyder[/B] told me. "We're a lot better team with him today.'' And the Redskins didn't have to touch the 2008 draft. That took some discipline right there
