Re: Redskins should do NOTHING

That would be so sweet if Mix could work out.

Re: Redskins should do NOTHING

After years of tryin' the quick fix to get a bad team to go to the next level ...now we are graced with a good team and should stay out of the splash free agent business to get to the next level. We need depth and to get younger...the Draft is the safest vehicle to do this...now I do think we should not pick thinking of the home run...which has been our demise during the last 10 to 15 years of first round draft...desmond howard, westbrook and Heath Shuler ect... When you draft lineman over skill players it is harder to strikeout swinging for the fences.

Re: Redskins should do NOTHING

i don't get some of you guys..one day i see you post we should get hackett or florence maybe berrian now you're saying oh we should back off and develop..lets make up our minds. yes this is an expensive free agency year but thats because of the level of talent out there. if there ever was a time snyder should open his checkbook it was this year.

Re: Redskins should do NOTHING

I just looked at Mix' highlights at Auburn. Here's what I saw:

1. Great hands
2. Decent speed
3. Well below average athleticism for a WR excellent for a TE

I think he could be a real weapon in the red zone and on short yardage but he may not have the athleticism to get separation on a regular basis. IMO he looks good enough even at the college level to get a real good look in camp... not even taking into account his familiarity with JC.

But he is not on the same level as Malcolm Kelly, Limas Sweed and James Hardy. Hardy could be the steal of the draft in round 2. He looks great... prob won't fall to us however.

Because he hasn't shown anything at this level but potential and is probably a tweener. He looks like a poor mans Mike Williams.

IMO we should draft James Hardy in the first 2 rounds, some publications have him falling into the 3rd round but I think he will be gone mid 2nd

The guy is a monster. 6'5" 217 lbs 4.49 in the 40 18 reps 225
And it all hold up when you watch him on film.

That should be enough to tell you right there.

On a serious note, there's a reason they're called "highlights". I don't think I'll ever look at someone's highlight reel and all of a sudden expect them to be a monster. You have to look at true game film, look at how they block when they don't get the ball. You have to look at how they sell routes. Not to bust your balls, but we really don't have anything to go on besides the feel-good things the Redskins have told us about him...

Not to blow DG's cover, but-unless he's moved on to another sport-he works on college football here so when he's talking about seeing Mix's highlights he's not talking about some 4-minute package with cool wipes and Linkin Park music. He's watching each play from multiple angles (many of which never make it to broadcast tv). I don't really agree with him on Hardy (I don't think we really need to draft a WR before round 3), but I just wanted to make it clear that it's not like DGreene is going on YouTube and searching "Anthony Mix"

Re: Redskins should do NOTHING

Anthony*Mix, WR, Auburn - 2006 NFL Draft Scout Profile, Powered by The SportsXchange

Looks like Mix ran a 4.48 at the combine in 2006 which is great for a WR his size.

He actually has a better vertical then Hardy at 32"

However he is a almost a foot shorter then Hardy on the broad Jump.

He is significantly slower then Hardy in the shuttle and 3-cone which would explain the drop off in athleticism.

I know the combine is an inexact science but at least it's something tangible we can analyze in determining our needs at WR heading into the draft.

Hardy was also way more productive in college then Mix.

Haha, true SS sometimes it's hard to explain... actually on the draft now. I think James Hardy is going to be a lot better then Devin Thomas at the next level, but we'll see. He's steadily climbing up the boards and has the crazy numbers to back it up on the field in a good conference. I think it depends who is there. I don't like Calais Campbell which is another one who the experts say we may go with. He doesn't look as athletic as Derrick Harvey.

If McKelvin or Rodgers-Cromartie are available then we may have to go there, stay away from Cason SS even in the second. We don't have to go DE in the first round, the Bears drafted Mark Anderson in the 5th round and the Giants drafted Osi and Strahan in the 2nd.

Peyton Hillis would be an outstanding pick for us in round 4 if he's still there, just as strong as Schmitt and if you look at all of McFadden's runs Hillis has a great block in just about all of them.

Well that's a horse of a different color! (could not find lame Wizard of Oz pic to post)

That being said, we all need to remember that YouTube IS the foremost authority on all athletes and we shouldn't forget that.

I'm tempted to take a chance on someone like a Marcus Monk, Bruce Hocker, or Paul Hubbard in the 5th round.

Is he seriously projected to be a 5th round pick? I think that would be a STEAL if we could get him in the 5th.
