Who do we sign on defense? FA/Draft?

I have to admit, the only defensive talent that comes to mind in the draft is Chris Long. Would love it if the Redskins were able to draft him (but that's probably not going to happen.)

Anyways, I still believe our most pressing need is to upgrade our defensive line. We need young legs, strength and a lot speed up front. Who do you guys think the Redskins will go after in both free agency and the draft to address our needs on defense?

Well I feel Chris Long is not a long shot at all. Plus the fact that the Dolphins are listening to trade down anyway & the Bengals doesn't plan to trade CJ. To me DE is the next big need to fill go for it DS.

Re: Who do we sign on defense? FA/Draft?

One thing I think about drafting another player in the safety is this...if we have a strong defensive line that puts a lot of pressure on the quarterback, we're not going to need another Darrell Green or Champ Bailey. What we have in Springs and Smoot will be good enough.

Yup

Him or Cason in the 1st round. People will complain that we're not drafting a DE, but that's ok. The offseason isn't just about the first round of the draft. There are several ways to address many of our needs

And that is the point that so many people overlook.

Talib has better hands but cason is faster its win win in my book.

Cason may not make it past the Cardinals at 16. And if Talib has a good combine he may not be there at 21 either.

Hopefully one of them will though. If not, then maybe someone like Mike Jenkins would slide down

Re: Who do we sign on defense? FA/Draft?

If we are talking defense only then I would suggest CB, DE, or DL. We will need one more CB due to Rogers being out. They are not even sure if Rogers will come back and be the same. If he's not the same then we atleast have a plan. If he's just a new then we will have our CB for the future.

We need a DE to accompany Carter. This would definitly be awsome. Who was the fill in during the Seatle game. I think he did pretty good. Perhaps just a little more playing time.

We need DL due to the fact that Daniels and Griffin are older and somehow hurt often. One of them always is having back spasms. Time to get younger. This is the year to bring in young blood and start rotating them to get experience.

Our S turned out to be pretty good. I like what we had even though it was make shift. Perhaps more playing time and the dynamic duo will be awsome. With more of a rush from the line and they might get more interceptions.

Offense has a lot of needs also though. I'm hoping Mix turns out to be a gem especially in this offense however I think we need an experienced tall talented possession WR. Mix was a rookie last year and he will need to time to be excellent.

Our OL is getting old as well. Time to start looking for young blood there also. Even if we can just rotate them in on games that we are blowing away the competition to get experience.

We need to lose Brunell and Collins. Maybe Collins will follow AS. Brunell will be a cap casualty(hopefully). Lets get younger there also. I like Campbell I think he will be great in this offense. I hope the Marylander we picked up last year...Sam Hollenbach turns out to be good also in this offense. Then we can pick up a #3 in a late round or pick one up that was not drafted.

I have said it before, we need to get Corey Williams. I think we should draft a DE. We keep springs for one more year and draft a corner next year. We need to take Oline in the next two rounds.

Chris Long may go 1st per NFL Network. Top 5 lock though. I wouldn't be upset if we somehow got Chris Long as long as we didn't give away too much. He's can rush the passer, he's can stuff the run, he's ultra competitive, and he's a class act. I'd be really happy to get him.

Lawrence Jackson from USC would be a great first round pick. I want him to be a skin, and he would asses a big hole at DE.
