Grade the Redskins Draft!
 
Well, the picks are in. What is your grade (A+ through F-) and why?
[I]
EDIT: Since a few people are questioning what exactly it is I'm asking you to grade, consider: Based on the Redskins needs heading into Saturday, and based on the projections of the players we selected, assign a letter grade to your preliminary assessment of the Redskins 2009 draft class.[/I]

1- Brian Orakpo (DE)
3- Kevin Barnes (CB)
5- Cody Glenn (OLB)
6- Robert Henson (OLB)
7- Eddie Williams (TE/FB)
7- Marko Mitchell (WR)

I gvie it a C. LOVE Orakpo, love that we didn't go after Sanchez. Hate that we didn't upgrade the OL, and the Cody Glenn pick is a head scratcher.

I give it a C as well for pretty much all the reasons you already stated lol.

Right now, looks like a B-. The buzz about Sanchez was definitely a factor in Orakpo dropping to us. Extremely glad we stayed away from Sanchez. Maybe some post draft trades in the making, possbily Sellers or Davis. Still wanted AQ Shipley though, Steelers got him in the early 7th I believe.

C+ Orakpo could be a double digit sac guy and very happy we didnt move up for Sanchez. I just dont understand why we didnt get an offensive lineman. We needed an OT and the center position had some depth this year...the two OLB we got I have never heard of when researching the position prior to the draft, both appear to be take too high. I think the CB shows some promise. Thought we could have done better.

I would grade it out around an B/B+. Orakpo has to meet expectations.
I do wonder how the FO takes injuries into account when grading, because it seems like we picked alot who fell to us due to some sort of injury concern.
If one of the LB prospects is able to step in, then we would have filled two of our three needs and thats a good thing.
The late picks did leave me scratching my head a bit, but only time will tell.

B.

Love Orakpo and I really like Barnes too.

Kinda scratched my head on the LB picks, just hope they prove us wrong. They both seem like projects.

Williams sounds like he could be a legit FB/H-back type.

Mitchell seems like an intriguing prospect.

He's projected as, and mostly played as, a fullback

Or at the very least let's wait until training camp before we roast them.

Can't really grade yet. Can't really grade last years yet.

I do like Orakpo, Barnes & Mitchell! I think Marko Mitchell could maybe make the team. It'd be sweet to see him do that and see how Thomas & Kelly react.

Re: Grade the Redskins Draft!
 
How are you guys beating us up so hard on 5th round picks on? I guess we should've gotten a starting OT there?

I'm thinking we're going to make a trade for a bomb right tackle...I can feel it.
