Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
Possible later round wr to look at, he was hurt all this year but his jr year he had 12tds. He's got great size(6'5 219), maybe a little on the slow side. But with questions at wr for us he might be a guy to look at in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th round. Anyone know more about him??

pdid5000 01-07-2008 08:09 PM

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
I guess he's ranked higher then i thought. Do we take a wr with our 1st rounder, probably not.

a big physical reciever and he is not on the slow side he is not Santana Moss but he is not Larry Fitzgerald either

i watched a few longhorn games, since i live in texas. he seems to have good hands. not overly fast. he breaks quite a few tackles. as far as i can tell he has a great attitude.

Nothing wrong with this thread. It's specific to Sweed

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
rather try dj hall instead.... WRs are much safer in FA though, and a guy like walker CJ etc would be a better idea (imo). I wouldn't take sweed in the first.

we need a stud there, or at least a clear #1 to help explode moss's stats, or its not worth it. having 14 #2s doesn't help us... it HAS to be a guy near or better than moss as far as talent (with less hamstring issues).

My buddy goes to UT and I asked him about Sweed (He's hardcore into their sports) he said stay clear of him. Ill take his word on this guy.

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
I wouldn't mind seeing us taking another WR in the draft, but I would be kind of pissed if we did so with our first pick. We have more pressing needs along the lines and in the secondary.

Daseal 01-08-2008 02:01 PM

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
personally -- I think we take the best stud DE or WR available in the first -- then toss everything we have into the offensive line and defensive line (to a lesser extent). I'd also be okay with a safety at that spot. I guess what I'm saying: 1st overall pick take the best player on the board nearly regardless of position (minus RB or something), and then build the lines.

I agree. I started a bowl game thread the very day that Texas was playing its game mainly because of Sweed. He has a wrist injury, but he had a good jr. year. He's been on scouts, inc. big board for months.

I like this guy, size & avg. speed I believe - 4.55. On the flip side, I think the word on him is he's shown mainly potential rather than production at texas.

jbcjr14 01-08-2008 02:24 PM

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
I live in Austin and have seen Sweed play the past couple of years. He can play and play well under the right circumstances. He broke his wrist early this year and decided to have surgery to clear up the problem so he would be ready for the combines.

I think he goes 2nd or 3rd round and if we are lucky enough to get him he would fit in nicely under the current offensive scheme. Good team player, good character guy and he can catch the ball!

That Guy 01-09-2008 12:10 AM

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
4.55 is really slow :/ i don't really see anything from the games i watched to come close to wanting to throw a first round pick at him.

Duffman003 01-09-2008 12:49 PM

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
Mel Kiper ranks him really high though, putting him at number 14 so it seems like it would be hard for us to get him unless things change in the near future.

Jerry Rice ran a 4.7.

He's the greatest receiver in the history of the game. Just saying...

Anytime someone mentions taking a WR in the 1st round I crinch...Mike Williams, Charles Rogers, my mind is drawing a blank but its about 50/50 to get a decent one.

I don't know anything about Sweed but i do think we need a playmaker at the WR position. We do still have Brandon Lloyd though.

see though, the difference is that jerry rice was actually REALLY good, and walsh had a system that helped him out on that.

21. Washington Redskins
Record: 9-7
Scouts Inc.'s biggest needs: WR, DE, S, OT, CB
Projected pick: Limas Sweed, WR, Texas
The Redskins' top priority this offseason is to add a playmaking receiver to the roster. There projects to be a run of wide receivers in the bottom half of the first round before the shallow talent pool dries up and if the Redskins don't get involved here they're likely to get shut out of the wide receiver market. Sweed could become one of the steals of this year's draft; he possesses top-10 talent but will no doubt be undervalued due to a wrist injury that cut short his senior season but should have no long-term affects on his pass-catching ability.

I subconciously was referring to Rod Gardner. Throw RG into the semi busts. He was a 1st rounder right?

GMScud 01-16-2008 05:59 PM

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
As of right now, I'd be happy with Limas Sweed. I like his size, but I wouldn't mind seeing him get his 40 time under 4.5. All these mock drafts are cute and everything, but SO MUCH changes after the combine, especially with speed positions. On a side note I love having a 6 draft picks this year. It feels so weird to have the entire draft carry this much significance for the Skins.

that's the truth, we won't know what to do w/ourselves w/6 picks!

I could see us getting a wr w/our first pick. Early indications are that the best DEs will probably be gone by then. The best value might be wr. Looks like there are a no. of good O linemen available in later rounds.

I would LOVE to get DE Vernon Gholston from Ohio St. I don't think he'll be around at #21, but I also don't think he'll go as high as #6, which is where McShay currently has him.

Hey, I just noticed the coincidence- we have the #21 overall pick? References to Sean are everywhere...

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
We just signed Anthony Mix to a 3yr. extention and I'm anxious to see just what promise he has. Further, I really don't think a WR will be high on their priority list. Much will depend on the FA WR's we already have.

Redsk1 - he was a first rounder - I was so mad at that draft because we needed a guard that year and Steve Hutchinson kept falling in that draft - when Hutchinson was available I was jumping for joy that he fell into our laps but instead of taking Hutchinson we took Gardner - I remember to this day the ESPN analysts questioning why we didn't take Hutchinson because they also thought the Skins needed a guard. I was surprised because Marty was in control at the time and that pick looked like it had Dan Synder written all over it (big, flashy receiver over badly needed lineman).

Dirtbag59 01-16-2008 06:57 PM

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
I'm looking for a Guard, Safety, DE, or an exceptional Linebacker prospect as our first pick. Drafting a WR in the first round is high risk in my opinion, now if your boy drops to us in the second round then make him a Redskin, but chances are thats not going to happen.

actually as I recall the danny wanted Moss, who went one pick later to the NYJ.

I remember everyone saying we needed a wr that year, don't know if Marty agreed or not. WR is a tough position to draft, but if you look to build long term, it can be worth it to nab one early as he'll start to produce in the 3rd year if he's good.

We could get him in the 2nd round

Ruhskins 01-17-2008 02:25 AM

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
I hear people talk about Sweed's speed, but we need possession receiver. We already have speed with Santana Moss. We need a tall receiver that can outjump DBs and fight for the ball. Although I must agree with the discussions about not taking a WR in the first round. Oh well.

blitzfiftysix 01-18-2008 12:23 AM

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
He won't be there when we pick. If he was, we have higher priorities. DE, DT.

This kid has looked solid all year. He is big, he can catch, and he can [B]block[/B]. I spotted him at the Insight Bowl and thought that he would be worth a late round selection this year. The Freshman that he plays with, "Dez White" is going to be special though; probably a 1st rounder, but we'll see.

Man we need to see what A. Mix can do. I am from Texas and watched a lot of his games and he never just wowed me. Use our picks for D line and O line depth.
