Are we convinced that Andre Smith or Oher can just move to RT and be a proficient and effective starter from day one? That's my biggest concern with drafting a OT at 13, we're drafting someone to play out of position. Why not draft DE/OLB there and then pick up a RT in the third-where we're likely going to get a OT who played RT for 3-4 years already.

If we come out of draft day with a long time starter at RT, I really believe the offense will take a huge leap forward. This assumes that one or more of the young receivers drafted last year emerges as a solid contributor.

Trade down, maybe with Denver. They like Sanchez and he is there at 13, trade to 18 and pick up another pick. maybe trade again after that.

Give Heyer a chance to earn the RT spot.

DRAFT MAUALUGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! London will be gone in a year and Blades is small. He is the only LB besides Aaron Currey who has HOF potential. Stop only looking at this season, look to the best interest of our team moving forward. He could be our emotional leader/field general for the next decade!

I have no problem with what you're thinking. In fact, I've pretty much convinced myself that Tyson Jackson is the safest - not necessarily the best, but the safest - pick for the Redskins at #13. He is a prototypical LDE in a 4-3 and we need one of those.

If Denver likes Sanchez at 13, wouldn't they also like him at 12, which is where they are picking? Just saying.

Seriously doubt Sanchcez is there at 12 or 13. Most of the mocks I have seen have Sanchez gone in the top 7.

very thin QB crop this year, and lots of teams in the top 10 have that need.

I hope we can trade down and get the 2nd round pick back. Then draft the best OL, DL or LB with the 1st, 2nd & 3rd round draft picks.

I agree. I understand the argument that we should stay at 13 and get a top-shelf stud. I would not be unhappy if this happens.

However, it seems to me that the Redskins are a better team if they fill more holes than if they fill one hole with a beast. Therefore I am a trade-down fan. The Skins possibly could still land a very fine DE or OLB late in the first round and pick the best experienced (i.e. not changing position) RT in the draft in the second. Hopefully, voila, two very good players who start soon, both acquired by the end of the first day of the draft.
