Re: Reche Caldwell and Keenan McCardell: 2008 Plans?

I am strongly AGAINST drafting a WR with our 1st or 2nd pick...maybe if we see some talent there in the later rounds for a big target. The reason is that WR's in this class are high risk-high reward whereas D-linemen and O-linemen (who we need more) are much safer picks. Our philosophy for this draft should be to build around the talented core we already have b/c we are young team on the cusp of the playoffs. We should reinforce the positions that are getting older and that need some talent upgrade (D-line, O-line, CB). The WR core we have is fine, minus 1 big target guy. If we can get an Andre Johnson or someone that'd be great but i don't think thats gonna be the case given our current cap status. Plus these late pick WR's tend to pan out b/c they are talented players with an injury or some question mark that teams didn't want to gamble on with an early pick.

I would say he is as good as gone if Gibbs stays on another year. I'm not a cap geek but I know if he cut it's a pretty big cap hit. Does the team want to eat that? I don't know.

They ate it for Arch, I don't see why they won't for Lloyd.

The Lloyd experiment is over and it was a giant failure. No sense in trying to make it work any longer. Looks like we'll eat about $4M, that's really not too bad.

Adarius Bowman, Oklahoma State
Height: 6-4. Weight: 215.
40 Time: 4.48.
Projected Round: 1.
In his first year at Oklahoma State, Adarius Bowman had 1,181 yards and 12 touchdowns. Caught 13 passes for 300 yards and four scores against Kansas. If Bowman runs a 4.4, he's definitely going in the top 20.

D.J. Hall, Alabama
Height: 6-3. Weight: 190.
40 Time: 4.44.
Projected Round: 1-2.

Caught 62 passes for 1,056 yards with an inexperienced quarterback throwing to him. If John Parker Wilson improves, Hall's stock will soar.

James Hardy, Indiana
Height: 6-6. Weight: 215.
40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round: Top 20 Pick.

Caught at least five passes in all but one game starting in October 2006. Had nine receptions for 151 yards and a TD at Purdue.

Jaison Williams, Oregon
Height: 6-4. Weight: 243.
40 Time: 4.57.
Projected Round: 1-2.
An intriguing prospect. Look at his weight. How can anyone defend him inside the end zone? If Jaison Williams can run a 4.5, he'll go in the first round. Caught 68 passes for 984 yards and six touchdowns in 2006.

Limas Sweed, Texas
Height: 6-5. Weight: 218.
40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round: 2.

I've dropped Sweed a bit because it's quite apparent that his 40 time will really hurt him.

I have a feeling Limas Sweed's stock may slip come Combine time (see 40 time), but the fact remains that he's the top possession receiver in this class. Check out NFL Draft Dog's Scouting Report.


I got this from an nfl draft site for what it is worth (I know there are countless of them out there - here is the link....

WalterFootball.com: 2008 Wide Receiver Rankings
I would prefer the Redskins not go after an overpriced free agent and concentrate on the draft. I've seen Hardy, Hall and Williams play a few times and I'm impressed with all of them. Especially James Hardy. The guy has speed, size and great hands. The Redskins need a big receiver. All their receivers are small and that's why they have a hard time scoring in the red zone. I like Santana Moss and Randle El but Brandon Lloyd can go. Keenan McCardell will probably retire but if he returns for league minimum, I would keep him. Reece Caldwell is an serviceable backup. James Thrash value is his versatility.

Re: Reche Caldwell and Keenan McCardell: 2008 Plans?

The Redskin draft needs, as I see it:
1) Defensive end - This has been a problem for a few years. Montgomery and Golston were good finds. Andre Carter is ok. Daniels is getting too old. They need a stud left defensive end.
2) Offensive line depth - When healthy, the offensive line is a strength. I really like Stephen Hester. Need more youthful depth. You never can have too many quality linemen.
3) Cornerback - Again, you can never have too many quality corners. This is a passing league and you need someone to stay with those receivers.
