Vinny Cerrato was on Redskins Radio and said WR DJ Hackett would come in for dinner tonight and meetings tomorrow.. The team is hoping to get a deal done with the former Seattle WR in the near future.. He would essentially replace Brandon Lloyd as an outside WR with Antwaan Randle El moving into the slot in 3 WR sets.. In two WR sets, Randle-El would likely remain the starter opposite Santana Moss..

Re: JLC: Evaluating Anthony Mix

I'm not beliving any of the hype surronding him....yet. I don't think I even saw him last year, or remember hearing his name. But, the numbers do stand out. 4.45 in the 40 during his combine, and 6'5 245lbd. That's a huge target for Jason to hit. I hope he does live up to all the talk about him though. Him and Santanna could be leathal on a Defense.

Re: JLC: Evaluating Anthony Mix

we should really trade for someone like Randy Moss, I'd give up the entire draft for him

And I wouldn't.. A stand out receiver - even Randy Moss or TO is not worth all picks.. There is always a gem hiding in late rounds, we just have to uncover it..

True he hasn't proven anything as a wr, but his play on special teams shows that he has some passion for the game.

WR's often take a few years to adapt to the nfl, so maybe he's at the point where he's maturing & feeling confident. Let's hope so. If Mix caught 30 passes this year I think that would be a major success provided he didn't have a bunch of big drops.

I think you're right about the injuries, but not w/ARE. He's been very durable, I believe he missed the first game of his career last year w/his hamstring injury. I agree that we should draft a wr, but that doesn't preclude Mix getting some pt.
Right. I'm not suggesting we use our first round pick on a WR. We'd probably be better suited to go OL, CB, or DE with the 21st overall. But there are guys with size who will be available in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Names like Devin Thomas, James Hardy, Jordy Nelson, Adarius Bowman, and Adrian Arrington come to mind for projected 2nd or 3rd round big WRs we could look at. Draft a WR and give Mix a shot. A lot of people around here
like him, but I think he's a fringe player as far as making the 53 man.

I jsarno wants to draft Marcus Monk, but we already have a Marcus Monk. His name is Anthony Mix. Sorry jsarno.

Moreover, we've been fielding a run-heavy offense these past few years so it doesn't surprise me that our wideouts aren't catching 300 balls a year for 3,500 yards.

In any case, I would LOVE to have a dominant wideout. I simply believe that we have more pressing needs elsewhere. Three-fifths of our offensive line is going to have be replaced within the next 2 years or so. Wideouts don't do much good when the QB is laying flat on his back. Half of our defensive line is going to be replaced within the next year or two. Springs and Fletcher will likely need to be replaced within the next year. That's all I'm saying.
Well finally someone agrees with me on the O-line. As much as I want a big time WR, IMO we've got to address the O-line first.

Edwards and Johnson couldn't be pried away from their teams with a crowbar. Detroit says firmly that it won't trade Roy Williams unless the offer absolutely blows them away.

If you want us to use our 1st rounder on a wideout, what makes you think he'll be a difference maker? About 50% of late first round wideouts are busts and few rookie wideouts have a meaningful impact. The odds of landing an impact rookie wideout with the 21st pick are pretty piss-poor.
I was just using those guys as examples. Some of them are mid-and late round picks so hopefully we can land someone in the 3rd round this year. I think our FO does well drafting guys. I have confidence that we'll find a Marcus Colston or and Anquan Boldin in this years draft class.

I certainly think we are going to draft a new wideout, either in the second or third round. As GMScud pointed out, there should be guys available in the those rounds who will be able to contribute. I just don't want to see us use our #1 pick on a wideout.

What I would like to see us doing is to go after a guard, like Brandon Albert in the first, then in the second we take Calais Campbell, and the third we take Jordy Nelson or we could take Jerome Simpson in the fourth.

Re: JLC: Evaluating Anthony Mix

At least he recognizes the fact there's an opportunity there for him if he has what it takes to take advantage of it. I know very little about Mix or his abilities as a receiver, but I guess we'll soon find out.

I'll hold serve on him and hope for the best, until/unless he proves he has nothing to offer aside from ST. I'm not going to hype him, or declare him a bust.

Re: JLC: Evaluating Anthony Mix

I HONESTLY believe that when the 21st pick comes in the first round...and if Limas Sweed is still available...the skins will get him. He had a wrist injury...nothing like a knee or ankle or even toe injury...a wrist injury that is healed. I think he is the best wide receiver in college football and would be a STEAL to get him. Many of you will disagree, but let time prove me right or wrong...I just hope that if I am proven right, it is with him on our team and nobody else's. Mel Kiper still has us picking Talib (cb) in the first round and I really find that hard to believe. Better talent will be available before him...any comments?

Re: JLC: Evaluating Anthony Mix

I love this, right now Mix has three threads dedicated to him on the front page of ExtremeSkins. The hype surrounding this guy is unreal.

I definitely would not hate the selection of Sweed at #21 as long as that wrist is not an issue.

I know, it's crazy isn't it? One genius poster over there predicted 1100 yds and 5 TD.. The guy hasn't even reached Taylor Jacobs like praise and we're inducting him alongside Monk and Green in Canton.
