I think it's obvious to everyone that O line has to be worth at least 2 draft picks this draft, and maybe that's even 2 first day picks.
I am all for drafting lineman in the first day, although I think we really need to take a stud defensive end with the 1st round pick - Philip Daniels is not starting material in this league. Draft a DE with pick 1, than go for offensive lineman with 2 and 3, although I know WR is a need as well and the secondary may have to be addressed as well - the list is getting too long maybe the Skins will luck out and be able to swing a draft day deal and acquire more picks!

I know that sometimes you can't fill all your needs at draft time, but when the Skins needed a offensive lineman and picked Palmer, Sartz and Blades like you mentioned I was diappointed (although I think Blades was a steal). Maybe the Skins can luck out and pick up some lineman next draft - just no more trading picks away (unless it is to trade down and get additional picks!).
The most glaring example of this point is the 2004 draft -- With nothing but aging veterans along the D-line (Wynn, Daniels, Salave'a, Brandon Noble) Gibbs and Co. passed up a chance to take Chris Canty (DE - UVA) for Manuel White Jr. Canty is now a solid starter for the Cowboys.

Thankfully they atoned for that with the selections of Anthony Montgomery and Kedric Golston -- without a doubt, they have been the two most stunning success stories in recent draft history for the Redskins.
