Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man
 
After watching the Redskins show no interest in any free agent reciever, it dawned on me that Anthony Mix must be the guy. He is big, fast, and strong. At 6-5 tall and 235 pounds, he is a great red zone target. I know that everyone was high on him, but for some reason we have heard so much speculation that the Redskins were going after Chad Johnson, Roy Williams and Fitzgerald, we all sort of forgot about Mix. Maybe, just maybe, he is the reason they are not even interviewing, Johnson and Hackett.

Or maybe they are just waiting for the market to cool off, and/or maybe some potential trades are in the works.

I doubt that Mix is the reason they are standing pat right now.

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man
 
Still to early. I don't know if this deserves its own thread, but nevertheless, we've had guys lobbying for Mix all offseason so its about time someone started an Anthony Mix thread.

With that said if he makes plays like the ones he made in Seatle last year, then I'll gladly keep him.

[B]Strengths:[/B] Possesses great speed for size, shows good body control and flashes the ability to make the big play downfield. Has good athletic ability, flashes the ability to run crisp short-to-intermediate routes and catches the ball fairly well. Shows adequate recognition skills and generally settles into a soft spot working against zone coverage. Uses wide frame to shield defenders from the ball, he flashes the ability to make the tough catch in traffic and has the potential to develop into a productive red zone target. Gets downfield fairly quickly and has the potential to develop into a quality special teams' player. Has experience lining up at tight end, is capable of limning up at H-Back and can obviously line up at receiver so has good versatility.

[B]Weaknesses:[/B] Does not play as fast as 40-time indicates and his speed is too straight-line. Lacks ideal burst for a receiver and will have some problems creating separation working against man coverage at the next level. Doesn't use hands well, doesn't play with a mean streak and needs to improve ability to get a clean release working against press coverage. Lacks ideal size for an in-line blocker and doesn't sustain blocks well. Has to keep weight down to stay at receiver and conditioning will always be critical to success. Work ethic has been questioned at times and character may be somewhat of a concern. Broke left wrist in 2001 and missed two games with a sprained ankle in 2003 so durability is somewhat of a concern.

[B]Overall:[/B] Mix played in all 13 games of his true freshman season in 2002 and he lined up at tight end at that time. He moved from tight end to receiver midway through the 2003 season and he started 11 games that year. Mix started four of the 13 games he played in during the 2004 season catching 19 passes for a total of 294 yards and three touchdowns. As a senior in 2005, Mix finished with 288 yards and two touchdowns on 23 receptions. Mix is a classic 'tweener. He isn't quite big or strong enough to develop into a traditional tight end in the NFL and he lacks the initial quickness, suddenness and fluidity of a fulltime wide receiver. In our opinion, Mix's best chance to contributge in the NFL is at the H-Back position for a team that likes to get their tight ends extra involved in the passing game (see: Chiefs and Redskins). Mix's speed will cause matchup problems for linebackers and his size will cause matchup problems for defensive backs, so he is capable of becoming a quality situational receiver at the next level. Because of that upside, we think he is worth selecting late in the 2006 draft.

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man
 
There's also the possibility that they intend to draft a WR. I think that assuming Mix will produce anything other than decent special teams play is a mistake for this organization.

I'm high on the guy's measureables too, but I'm not a big fan of standing pat at WR and planning on Mix being a #2 or #4.

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man
 
I would argue the Seattle play was more of a right place at the right time kind of deal. Beside that however, Mix has made some decent tackles on special teams all year I don't think recovering the ball in Seattle was that big of a deal.

I do however feel he does need consideration seeing that he was always is around tackles on teams. Seems like he is working his butt off to get some playing time and I hope he does get some when ARE or hackett(my hope) are tired.

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man
 
I think the reason that everyone is high on Mix is because he played with JC in college and he's a tall dude. He does have experience in the WCO too, but we'll see. Just because the Giants dumped him doesn't mean he's worthless, sometimes guys bounce around from team to team until they get a chance to start and then they prove they are worth something. Did anyone think Antonio Pierce was a Pro Bowl linebacker before '04?

If you're counting on the tiny likelihood that an Antonio Pierce situation is going to repeat itself with Anthony Mix, then you're doing a poor job of planning out your roster.

Those are rare finds. You give them a chance to earn jobs in camp, but if you're EXPECTING them to develop into a starter, as a GM you should be fired.

If you feel you have a hole at WR, you need to make a move cap-permitting. And the cap permits in this instance.

It would be nice to have a tall talented vetran but..if it can't be done due to cost then so be it. Mix was loved by the Giants. They had other needs though. Mix was going to become their next possession WR but they already had one so he sat on the practice squad. Then let go to pick up other needs. Thats when we grabbed him.

I think he will do well. He will have learning curve though. It would be nice to pick up another young Tall WR to compliment each other. Maybe take turns in and out of rotation. Maybe use both in the red zone and cause alot of problems for other teams.

Right, we signed him directly off their practice squad,so he wasn't "cut" he just didn't make the g-men active roster.

BDBohnzie 03-07-2008 03:29 PM

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man
 
Mix was a 06 Practice Squad member, who made the 53 man roster in '07. He was put on waivers so the Giants could make room Domenik Hixon. From what I heard on TV, it was pretty much between keeping Mix and Steve Smith, and they chose Smith. So I'd imagine that if Mix was a first rounder, or a return specialist, he would have been kept.

He certainly did excel on Special Teams for the Skins. I'd imagine he could contribute regularly as a #4 along with his special teams work.

freddyg12 03-07-2008 03:32 PM

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man
 
This thread could be posed in this question: 'Does anyone foresee a situation similar to last year's draft when we opted not to draft a d-lineman, even when it was apparent to all we needed one?' Gibbs & GW said they were happy w/the progress Golston & Montgomery made, maybe that's the case w/Mix?

That could be the approach here. Last year they didn't draft a d-lineman in part because they liked Landry better than anyone else. They didn't sign one in fa, cause no one was available w/in reason. That could be the case this year if Hackett can't be signed, or no trades can come to fruition.

I think Vinny is thinking long-term. If the right player at right price can't be had this year, next year Roy Williams will be a free agent. Next year might be the time they look to sign a vet.

I HOPE Mix has made that much of an impression, but I think it's still too early to have much indication as to what they want to do at the reciever position. The first news we might get on this is if Caldwell's agent talks to someone.

skinsfan_nn 03-07-2008 03:34 PM

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man
 
Well we won't know until we get a chance to see him in action IMO. JC is really high on this kid, and the best I recall he only got one or so shots at WR last year and I don't remember if the ball even went his way. So you never really know what you have until you have earned a chance to play.

Could be a total dud, could be the next Randy Moss.....whos to say?

However, I did like what I witnessed on special teams from Mix last season. And I would like to see him get some playing time. If he puts in the work and proves he deserves a shot to get some playing time at wide out, then I'm sure we will all find out.

My bad, sounds like you know the details.

They decided to keep Tyree too, another guy that plays teams & didn't get a lot of opportunities at wr. Can't argue w/that move now.

The Skins have the room under the cap to make a move if they feel like it. My problem isn't that they haven't done anything, I'll have a problem if they do absolutely nothing though. They need to either add someone through the draft or via FA (I would prefer both, even if one of them is just to re-sign Caldwell).

If the FO is banking on Mix becoming a legit threat, they're doing a disservice to the team. Zorn has stated that Randle El will move to the slot, so we're in need of a #2 receiver. Caldwell isn't that guy, IMO. Hell, I don't see Moss as much more than a #2 right now. I don't believe there is a true #1 receiver available right now, but Johnson and Hackett are capable of being #2 receivers. I'm not saying that I necessarily want either of them, but something needs to happen.

As for the draft, I feel like this draft is full of #2 receivers from the bottom of round 1 to about the mid 3rd round. I could live with anyone from Limas Sweed to Jerome Simpson. I think if nothing is done in free agency, 2 receivers need to be selected in this draft.

At this point, I think I would probably select a WR in the first and 5th rounds of the upcoming draft rather give Hackett the money he will command. The problem with that is that I don't believe that anyone (sans Sweed) is ready to come and contribute on Day 1.

It's a sticky situation, but if they re-sign Caldwell and then draft a kid it might be the best route, the problem then is that they have Moss, Caldwell, Randle El (none of whom play teams), Thrash, Mix, Espy, and the Rook that's 7 receivers. I think Thrash and Espy/Mix could go and the other of Espy/Mix should end up on the practice squad. The problem with that is, you need to draft a big receiver then or you roll with a bunch of small guys should Mix not make the team.

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man
 
It seems as the front office is content with the recieving corp we have,as well as i. We need help on both sides of the line.Offense needs to get young depth,and the defense needs to get faster and stronger in the middle ,along with younger.Corner position is in desperate need right now.Remember 06' when injuries hurt our backfield,last year was pretty healthy.

No guarantees on Mix, but if we get Hackett we don't need any WRs in the draft. Let's give this guy a shot and if he develops and can be productive in the Red Zone great, if not look to the draft next year for WRs.

If we don't get Hackett then we probably target a big, physical WR in the 2nd or 3rd round.

good points, if we get those compensatory picks, 2 wr's would be possible, w/the likelihood that only 1 makes the team. I would love to see one of a couple of my Hokies, Justin Harper & Josh Morgan, taken in the late rounds. Both can play teams & might make because of that.

I wanted to see Espy emerge but after his injury last year I would be surprised if he can make the team if we draft anybody at wr.

I think this is the year to draft wr's if we're going to do it. That way they have time to develop in Zorn's offense in 08 & can produce in 09 & thereafter. We might get lucky & get a wr that can catch 30-40 passes as a rookie.

He made an immediate imppact on special teams. The reason he was able to recover the ball in Seatle is because he is big and got of the line well and once of the line, he had the speed to get there. Dont forget, he was a beast against Devin Hester.

We better not be depending on him for anything this coming season other than special teams and a [U]prayer[/U] for a little more.[/QUOTE]


Ryan Grant was on the G mens p squad before the Packers picked him up, and look how things turned out for him

Maybe they're thinking of him for CB! :doh:

So are you saying that this is the worst idea you've ever heard?

[QUOTE=TheMalcolmConnection;430239]So are you saying that this is the worst idea you've ever heard?[/QUOTE]I'm not really going that far, but I just think it's a huge JUMP to say that since we're quiet right now it must mean that Anthony Mix is reason.
Please, just 10 minutes ago I smacked my frozen up computer and yelled [I]"PC Load Letter?!? WTF does that mean?!?!"[/I], so Office Space is clearly on the brain.

Yes, and just like Antonio Pierce, an undrafted free agent for us, as someone mentioned earlier in this thread.

But are you going to bank on Anthony Mix making that kind of leap?

He's got size, he has decent straight line speed, but he has little agility/quickness and hence has trouble separating from DBs, hence has trouble getting on the field.

People in this thread are starting to sound like the kid is the second coming of Plax or TO. Hell, for him to put up #3 WR numbers this season would be a major leap from him. If you're the GM, and you're counting on Anthony Mix to make an impact, you should be fired.

What you guys are doing is HOPING. But to say we shouldn't address WR because Anthony Mix is going to make everything OK, that would be a very poor decision.

That's what I'm saying too. I'm not saying the kid will never be a decent player, I hope that he does become a beast. At his size, if he put it together, he would be hell for opposing defenses, but to rest you're hopes on a guy with [B]3 career catches for 39 yards[/B] is asinine if your the general manager of a football team. They need to bring someone else in.

[QUOTE=BDBohnzie;430205]Mix was a 06 Practice Squad member, who made the 53 man roster in '07. He was put on waivers so the Giants could make room Domenik Hixon. From what I heard on TV, it was pretty much between keeping Mix and Steve Smith, and they chose Smith. So I'd imagine that if Mix was a first rounder, or a return specialist, he would have been kept.

He certainly did excel on Special Teams for the Skins. I'd imagine he could contribute regularly as a #4 along with his special teams work.[/QUOTE]


*I* recall mentioning AM in the "Zorn and Shins to pursue DJ Hackett" thread a day or so ago. I don't recall him ever being placed on waivers, but the Redskins plucked him from the Giants PS, the only requirement when you do that is that you must sign him to your 53 man roster.

The Giants had hopes for AM and wanted him to stay around. He probably would have gotten a chance to show what he could do had Plexico Burress not proved he was able to continue playing through injury. They liked what they saw of Mix in the preseason, and actually wanted to keep him but you can't block a player on the PS from being signed by another team.

I don't have any idea what the teams plan is for Mix, but I would like to see him at least have an opportunity to show what he can do in the preseason.

Anthony Mix deserves a chance, i just don't want to see us waste a 1st rd pick on a WR, there is no one out there that come in and learn a new system and make an immediate impact, sign a FA who's played in the NFL and has potential

I agree......If you're going to draft a WR in the first round he has to be a stud, future pro-bowler who can come in and make an immediate impact. At #21 there wont be anyone there who fits that description for the Redskins.

I'm of the opinion it would be in our best interest to go D-line or even CB rather than thinking an impact WR at #21.

I would go DL 1st, OL 2nd haven't worked out the rest.

lol he's still helpful in madden :silly:

For real though, I think this thread is not "overhyping" the guy, rather suggesting we examine the man more closely... an idea that I'm extremely open to as a fan. For now, however, I think we should take a wait and see approach and starve ourselves until after the draft to see the Skins' moves on wide-outs.

No, people are thinking [B]Over 6'4 + alleged sub 4.4 40 time = Great Big Possession Receiver to compliment Moss.[/B]

To me it's kind of like saying
[B]Underweight = Anorexia [/B]

Just because someones underweight doesn't mean their annorexic. Same thing with Mix, just because he's big and fast doesn't mean he's going to gain 700 yards next year. I mean it's possible, but not likely.

We dont need a superstar, we need a big target in the red zone. Santana is our superstar. We need 500 yards out of him.
