Latest Fanball Mock Draft- Skins trade down to #10
 
[url]http://www.fanball.com/fb/article.cfm/ID.2409[/url]

In this mock, we trade down with Texas and pick up Will Smith, DE at #10.
Answer 3 questions for me-
1-In this scenario, would it be too much to hope that we would receive Texas' 2nd round pick also?
2- If we got their second rounder, who might be available still that we would want? Any of the good TE's, LB's or D Linemen?
3- Would we be better off with Will Smith or Kenechi Udeze if we trade down to #10? Can someone who watches alot of college football sound off on that topic? From what I read, Udeze is the better of the 2...

For a team that really wants the #5 pick, a 2nd rounder is not out of the question.
At #10, KWII or Taylor may still be available, considering the needs of the 5-9 teams. We could still probably get a decent lineman in the second round.

udeze would be the better pick... you don't get 16.5 sacks (3 against a solid michigan line in the rose bowl) in your last season and call it a fluke.

I defintley dont think Taylor would be around. Wouldnt the whole point of the Texans trading up in the first place, is to get Taylor?

According to the trade value chart ([url="http://www.nfldraftview.com/tvchart.html"]http://www.nfldraftview.com/tvchart.html[/url]), the values would add up just about right if the Texans included the 8th pick in the 2nd round (#40 overall).

[QUOTE=raleighskinsfan]2- If we got their second rounder, who might be available still that we would want? Any of the good TE's, LB's or D Linemen?[/QUOTE]
According to Mel Kiper's latest 2nd round projection ([url="http://proxy.espn.go.com/ncf/columns/story?columnist=kiper_jr_mel&id=1776794"]http://proxy.espn.go.com/ncf/columns/story?columnist=kiper_jr_mel&id=1776794[/url]), there would be some starting-quality players available at positions of need for the Redskins with the #40 pick. These include LBs Karlos Dansby (Auburn), Daryl Smith (Georgia Tech), Courtney Watson (Notre Dame), Teddy Lehman (Oklahoma) and Michael Boulware (Florida State); DE Antwan Odom (Alabama) and DT Randy Starks (Maryland) might also be available.

I didn't watch a lot of college ball throughout the season, but based on what I did see in the bowl games (watching these two players in particular), and what I've read in various scouting reports, Udeze seems like a more well-rounded D-lineman, and a more consistent pass rush threat.

In this particular trade down scenario, I would select Udeze at #10, and pray that Starks is still available at #40 (possible, but I doubt it). Getting that duo could transform the D-line into a legitimate front-four against both the run and the pass.

I'm thinking the Redskins trade down, get quality D-line, and just be happy with Ohalate.

Carnage 04-07-2004 07:03 PM

should be a good TE available at 40 too.

mizzo skins man 04-07-2004 07:38 PM

TRADE DOWN!!! We need D-linemen. I'm with most of you take Udeze. He had 16.5 sacks last season, and alot of the time he had double and triple team blocking on his ass. He is a bad Mo Fo. If by chance, he is not available at #10 Will Smith would not be a bad choice either.

SKINSnCANES 04-07-2004 10:41 PM

The real question is if we dont draft Taylor, does Iffy get to keep his number? lol, jk

skinsfanthru&thru 04-08-2004 01:30 AM

if New England is willing to offer 2 first and one second for the pick BEHIND us, we should be able to get more than just a first and second. I realize the Texans picks are both higher up than new englands late round picks, but IMO 2 late first round picks and one late 2nd round pick r better than 1 1st and 1 2nd. just the 2 first round picks alone r better than the first and second.

JoeCrisp- you are the man! Your resources are astounding! Exactly what I was looking for. You have now given me my dream scenario for this draft. Trade down to #10, pick up Udeze and then Starks in the second round! We would truly have a defensive line to contend with if we could add both of those guys! Also, I wasn't aware Udeze had 3 sacks in the Rose Bowl along with all those sacks overall- along with what I've read about him being a general all-around playmaker, causing fumbles and knocking down passes, the fact that he comes up large in big games is the final key. I hope we draft him! Having Udeze and Lavar on the field at the same time would be scary fun!

Especially since Ben Troupe's (sp?) stock is falling.

Duffman003 04-08-2004 01:46 PM

I doubt starks would fall to the second round.
