If we end up picking in the top three, we should consider a quarterback, but we also shouldn't Alex Smith it, and take the highest available quarterback without considering anything else.
This, especially the Alex Smith part.

You know Andrew Crummey OL is on the Texans PS. Could we not bring him on board? or is there some expensive contract issue that keeps us from picking him up? Here's a list of some of the other teams PS OL...

Eric Young RT Rams
Trevor Canfield G Cards
Jermey Parnell T Saints
Chris Clark T Vikings
Johan Asiata G Bears
James Marten T Bears
Jaimie Thomas G Colts
Andrew Crummey OL Texans
Adam Stenavich T Texans

Edit: Andrew Crummey, Johan Asiata, and Trevor Canfield interest me.
The only issue with adding from another team's practice squad, that I know of, is you guarantee his roster spot for 3 weeks. Not that that should be a deal breaker, but you do want to be sure the guy is who you want.

Absolutely think Crummey ought to be back in Burgundy and Gold.

Re: Offensive Line

At this point I would spend both the first and second round on LT and RT. Give the O-line a huge boost third is tied up with Jarmin. Then I might start looking at QB or RB's to take over for our aged RB's. I would look for a viable SLB and return Orakpo to DE. Look to pick up CB's and a Safety in the later rounds. Make it well know that if your an OL we are holding open season. try them all out. pick the best and get younger and healthier faster.

Whoever comes in at GM and HC I would tell find the best WR position coach out there and bring him in to teach the WR's we have how the hell to play in the NFL. I might even spend on 1 WR FA if they are not too old and still have some gas left in them. I'd dump ARE and think long and hard about Moss.

Out of my list above maybe pick up Crummy, Asiata, and Canfield to replace R. Johnson is injured yet again. Weren't they thinking about cutting him last off season? Something about not using good technique?

By R. Johnson, do you mean Randy Thomas? Otherwise I like your assessment.

I would add trying to trade someone for picks. (Moss, Portis, or Landry).

Re: Offensive Line

As much as I would wish that we would build a team around a stong OLine, I just don't see that happening with current FO. Basic football logic is to control the line of scrimmage and the rest will follow, right?.
However, with DS being the marketing "genius" and VC as his side-kick just how many lineman jerseys do they have to sell to make up for one "Romo".
My point being that profits seem to be more important than winning.
But then again I'm just a die-hard fan that will now only buy my beloved Redskin goods from yard sales and used clothing stores.

Also, about the only person in your list worth anything is Landry. Portis has been injured every yr recently, and he's not producing the yrds he used to. Moss is in the same boat. He seems to get injured every year some how and this year although healthy he can't get seperation often enough and seems to drop the ball, that is if JC is not over throwing him.

I could see whoever comes in picking up a franchise QB in the first round and picking up a LT in the second round. We might get lucky in FA and pick up some RT who is not too old and gets the job done.

Here are my rankings as far as needs for this team:

1. Tackle - We just lost our franchise tackle (very likely for good) and we haven't picked up an offensive lineman in the first round in a long time.

2. QB/RB - While QB is definitely a need, Portis is old in RB years and has nothing left in the tank. We need to find our next Ray Rice, Tashard Choice, or LeSean McCoy.

3. LB - We need someone at LB so Orakpo can become a full time DE.

4. Guard/Center - We need depth.

Re: Offensive Line

You know, after reading remarks from Bowen and seeing results from Orakpo recently, I think that he can play OLB.

Re: Offensive Line

Is there anyone who could tell me about Levi Jones. He is our new LT. He said he played hurt all last year. Was he good prior to that and what was done to repair what ever was hindering him.

A good comparison when he was younger and healthy would be Tra Thomas or
Kyle Turley or D'Brickashaw Ferguson. But he hasn't been able to stay on the field in three years, and I wouldn't bet on him staying healthy for 8 straight weeks.

Jones played 10 games last year, 15 in '07, just 6 in (edit) '06 (worst year) and prior to that he was basically a franchise tackle.

If healthy I think he instantly becomes the best lineman on the roster, but like you said it's pretty dicey.

Does not make sense. Some where you got confused.

Re: Offensive Line

Redskins Insider article about Jones. At this point though the play on the field, not the words to the reporters is what I think we all want to see.
