I bleed skins, but I do not agree with not taking a corner in the second round or at least signing depth there. This is a passing league. The cowboys are stacked, Martellus Bennett is 6'7 and he's better than Fred Davis. Him, Witten and T.O. tough!!!!!!! I do think our offense and our run defense will be good.
I dont understand, as far as I know Springs is still on the team and our best corner.

Well, i think our pass rush needs help and we could use more talent at the corners, but I think we will be ok there.

I think with Mix on the team, we should have drafted Lee and not Kelly. This is relevant to the pass rush, becaue without one it makes are CB's even more vulnerable.
A few thoughts

-"injured his whole NFL career" seems a bit of a stretch for someone who just played all 16 games last year and at least 15 in three of the past four years. I don't deny that Springs is getting up there in age (NFL wise) or that he has had some injuries in the past, but "injured his whole NFL career" is inaccurate.

-Smoot is probably best suited as a nickel/#2 but there aren't many better out there

-I don't know enough about Tyron and think Torrence works hard but might not be talented enough. I agree about Rogers so I certainly would have liked some more depth at the position. But I guess the team feels they may have that with another year of experience for Torrence and with Tyron.

-I think that maybe all that faith you're putting in Mix you should put into some of the corners though, considering Mix has accomplished less than any of them.

You have to love this time of year when people think that our entire draft class is going to contribute on the field this coming year and not be a liability in any way.

I too use to have that but then saw many seasons go by where people after the 2nd round have a hard enough time making the team, let alone playing every down.

Why not use that pick on Patrick Lee instead and HOPE Mix could fill that big possesion No. 4 wideout spot.
Ok, fair enough. Why Patrick Lee though? Is that just an example or someone who you really were hoping for?

re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

James' career seems very much like Courney Penn's, another guy I'm glad we passed on in the draft. Is Penn still playing?

I wonder if James could make the team? Althoug it's a position of need, Wilson is a situational pass rusher & Buzbee will be fighting to make it again. Plus, washington played as a rushing de some last year. James' strength is as a pass rusher, but what we really need is an every down DE to replace Daniels long term.

I wouldn't bother bring Erasmus James in for a tryout. He's not a good defensive end, if the Vikings didn't even try and trade him that just shows how much they think he's worth. You don't cut a first round pick from 4 years ago unless he's pretty much worthless at this point.

I wouldn't be suprised to see the top 3 picks combine for 30 receptions and nobody else see anything other than ST duty this year. But, I've been beating that horse in other posts since April so....

James is not worth a look. I think some of the reason he was cut was financial (why pay the 4th DE on your team 1st rounder money) but I doubt he'll find a team before the preseason injuries mount for some team.

re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

he'd be a better backup than what we have currently, and would be dirt cheap, so there's no real risk.

re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

Remember when people were upset when we didnt take this guy with our 1st round pick?

That said -- hes good depth, and cheap. At this point we can afford to take maybes at that position.

Then why wait to cut him until he failed a physical? It's not like it matters in terms of the salary cap?
