NFC Grades: Yahoo Sports
 
With only five (six before Kansas City acquired Detroit’s pick) of the first 15 picks, it was bound to be an uphill climb in the draft for NFC teams this year. But the two best classes featured different strategies: one team that moved up for two first-round picks (Carolina), and another that traded out of the first round altogether (Washington).

I just came on here to post the same report/ although I was going to put it in the draft grade post, after reading it on Yahoo and you beat me to it. Nice to know we were one of only two teams to get an A rating in the NFC. I have also heard on several other news outlets us/skins being rated high. I think we should all be happy!

<<I think we should all be happy!>>

What crack are you smoking? You're happy because some dipshit says the Redskins had a good draft? How about 10 picks and MAYBE one guy makes the roster? This will go down as one of the worst drafts in Redskins history. Wait until September and see how many of these losers make the roster...it will be one. And don't even get me started on drafting a punter that no one wanted. We could have signed him as a FA for nuttin. Cerrato is an idiot. Get rid of him asap.

If we would have drafted Tom Brady in the sixth back in the day, I bet you'd be just as pissed as you are now. Instead of being negative about the draft, in every draft thread why don't you calm down and give them a chance? At least remain 50/50 on the picks, they haven't even went to camp yet, and you've already sentenced them to death.

Saying one player makes this team is ridiculous. The Redskins had a great draft, they got four players that were easily in the top 3 of their particular position on almost every board. We got two bigger WRs, a stud TE for 2 TE sets, a great punter, and some great depth. What didn't we get? Maybe Calais Campbell? I wanted him too, but it wasn't in the cards. I don't think our Dline is terrible by any means, but we could use some help.

The reason you draft a punter there is so you don't HAVE to compete with other teams. That's the point of drafting these players, having exclusive rights to a certain player. I would love to have a punter booming them for 10 years. I'd love a good kicker too.

My 14 yr. old makes more reasonable arguments than this. You'll be the first one jumping up and high-fiving when Thomas or Kelly scores or the punter kid blasts one 70 yds. Get a grip, you're making yourself sound real bad.

Yea some dip shit with no cred, that landed himself a seat at Yahoo sports writing sporting news, in which he has no ties to the skins at all, is that the dipshit you’re talking about or the 10 others that have made the same types of comments. Or maybe it was the crew on ESPN that said we had one of the best drafts.

Or quite possibly your just one of the 5 dipshits out of the several hundred people on this board that think it wasn’t a good draft. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but, it just appears on this point your opinion is one in which only a hand full of individuals agree with. If you were in my office right now I would bet you $200.00 that at least 5 of these players make the team(period) Saying only one player will make our roster might quite possibly be the dumbest thing I have ever heard in my 28 years of life.

Have fun being angry, unrealistic and irrational with you and your 5 friends that feel the same. Hey buddy, I think you’re the only one smoking crack on these boards, please come off your hazy cloud of stupidity and talk to me when you feel halfway back to reality.

you are probably the same guy that blasted Cerrato when the redskins went ape shit during free agency. now we have a pretty decent draft, and you are still talking bad about him. is it personal? and since the punter was drafted, if he does anything in training camp, he WILL make the team. does us a favor. put alittle more thought into your posting before hitting the submit button

Redskins picked up two WR's that are each 6'2" and higher that were projected first rounders, drafted one of the highest rated TE's on the boards, basically gave your young QB 3 HUGE targets to go along with ARE, Cooley and Moss. You say only ONE will make the roster but will not justify your statement and you accuse SOMEONE ELSE of smoking crack!?

So please tell us, of the draft picks selected on Saturday, which one is the only one makes the team?

PFunk26 04-28-2008 02:25 PM

Re: NFC Grades: Yahoo Sports
 
wow saying only one player will make the team is a stretch
and if the punter doesn't make the team I'll be surprised cause from everything I read he sounds like the best college has to offer. and lets face it Frosty is inconsistent at best.

Dude try and take a deep breath and wait until camp/ preseason before judging them. Anyway regarding the rating, yeah I think we did a great job this year. Thomas, Kelly, Rinehart, and Davis are a lock IMO. So help yourself to a big batch of Crow come September.

Re: NFC Grades: Yahoo Sports
 
I would have normally somewhat come close to agreeing with sbaughone considering we usually only get about half the draft picks to be worth something, but this draft was different. No we did not go out and get our DE/DL we desperatly needed. It would have been nice to have a flashy name there to go along with Carter but I feel we can get by with what we have as long as we are putting up some points on the board. I also am smart enough to figure they will look at the undrafted guys as well as any that are cut prior to preseason.

We picked up the top rated WR on the board in Thomas, the top rated TE on the board in Davis to compliment Cooley in our 2 TE sets, another top rated WR in Kelly who probably should not have dropped as far as he did, and the top punter on the board who can has a punt average of 45yrds but did punt one for 76yrds in highlights.

And as far as punters go.....right after we picked ours another was picked which means we would not have had the best punter on the board.

I'm also excited about our other picks. A CB that was compared to Smoot. I like that pick. An OL who will probably be turned into a G or C. I think Zorn is not to happy with our center now sitting his butt to low to the ground causing JC to squat to low. A Safety who was compared to Ryan Clark. Can't complain there Ryan did a good job hell we fell apart after he left.

Now if we can find some diamonds in the rough with the invites! I wish they would give us the names so we could start our cheering squad for the UFA's. LOL.

Erin Henderson and Andrew Crummey (local Univ of MD guys) weren't drafted and I think they are both good enough to make the skins roster. Henderson is especially surprising given that he was Kipers best available LB for a good portion of day 2.

Skinsfan1967 04-28-2008 04:00 PM

Re: NFC Grades: Yahoo Sports
 
The fact of the matter is that there are no guarentees on any player that is drafted. If one draftee makes the team and contibutes to winning then I would call it a successful draft. Who else was drafted with Art Monk or Darrell Green? Can you name any? Were those bad draft years?

SBXVII 04-28-2008 06:20 PM

Re: NFC Grades: Yahoo Sports
 
My last yrs choice was Marcus Mason. I was so happy he made the team. I don't know who I will root for this yr. I'm interested in a DE though.

Re: NFC Grades: Yahoo Sports
 
The only pick I was not overly enthused about was Brennan.
The guy was a great player in college, but that was in the WAC (which stands for Worst Ass Conference). And unless it is a kicker (Elam) or an O-Lineman coming out of Hawaii they are usually a bust.

Everyone remembers how Brennan did in that bowl game when Hawaii played a REAL Div 1 team. Brennan was a very good player is a very bad conference.

Remember how "great" Timmy Chang was at Hawaii? What has he done after college?

Hawaii plays an offense that is no longer used by teams in the NFL, the Run And Shoot, and QBs traditionally put up monster numbers in that scheme. But it is far and away different from anything you see in the NFL.

I may be wrong on this one. But but I just do not get a "warm fuzzy" drafting a QB from the WAC.

Timmy Chang is in the CFL (Hamilton Tiger Cats). Brennan is probably AFL or CFL bound too.

I don't know why, but it seems lately that we've been getting an influx of relatively new guys (between 50 and 200 post) that love to call us idiots/morons whenever we disagree with their viewpoint. All that makes me wonder if they were banned from ES and decided to come here instead, since flaming people with opposing viewpoints is the norm over there.

You absolutely spend a pick on a potential great punter or kicker, it's a big part of winning football, how many late round picks even make the team, this kid will be starting for us day 1, great pick at a big time need area.

I wanted Calais as well I felt we could have drafted him early in the second and still have a big WR available with the next pick, but as of next year my biggest concerns are CB, and OL, we have some potential at CB right now in Tryon and Torrence, OL could be a real sore spot next season.

I have concerns with Kellys knee's but I think he's a natural at WR, I also loved Davis at TE just didn't see that kind of a pressing need to draft him there, Thomas is the most physically gifted hopefully he only gets better. One thing I liked about all 3 is they all look very aggressive, they want the ball nice to see.

Actually it was in the Cards, as Campbell went to the Cardinals one pick before we drafted Kelly. I feel Calais Campbell would have been drafted by the Skins if he was available at 51.
