Resigning: anthony montgomery, chris wilson, hunter smith, jason campbell, golston, levi jones(depth), lorenzo alexander, quinton ganther, mike williams (depth), reed doughty (special teams), mcintosh, yoder, and heyer (depth).

Try to trade moss for picks or cut him, and try to trade rogers for picks, or resign him at a reasonable deal.

I think there's a better chance of trading down from our 2nd rd pick than our 1st. That being said, here's what I'd like out of the draft:

1st - Berry. If he's gone, then okung, and if somehow both are gone then gerald mccoy (assuming suh's gone too). I like berry as the top talent in the draft, and we'd certainly be getting our money's worth by taking him. Okung's good, but not THAT much better than the rest of the tackles in the draft - likewise with the QBs. Drafting berry lets us move landry to SS, and could give us a spectacular FS for the next decade. With a top 5 pick, you have to go for best available, regardless of need.

2nd - trade down for a later second rounder and late third rounder (think 17th/18th in both 2nd and 3rd rounds). With the later second round pick take Charles Brown, OT, USC. Perfect fit for zone blocking scheme, and OT is clearly a big need

3rd - Tony Pike/Dan LeFevour. Both have decent arms and upsides, and could be developed by shanny.

4th - I like taking a CB here, specifically someone like akwasi owusu-ansah. Good size, speed, and the most important part: return skills. Would be a great special teams player for us, and we can use more depth at CB, especially with carlos rogers' status being questionable and getting rid of smoot.

5th - Jacob hickman, C, Nebraska. I really just can't stand casey rabach and want to see him gone. If we address center in FA (see below), then I like OT/OG/RB here

6th/7th - OT/OG/RB in both rounds

FA: I think our chief concerns to address in FA are LB, WR, and OL depth. One name I'd really really like to sign is Eugene Amano from the Titans. He's a great youngish center who can also play guard, and we could probably get him for a really good value. For LB, if we can get dansby for a decent price, I say we do it, so orakpo can move to DE. Even a slighty questionable price would be okay (deangelo hall deal-esque) Another good option would be merriman here. Then we need to find a WR in FA as well, whether it's kevin walter, antonio bryant, or brandon marshall (depending on ease of acquisition due to FA restrictions). I think we also sign peyton hillis from denver. Then we need to decide whether we're trying to be a 3-4 team or not - vince wilfork would deserve a long hard look if that is our long term goal. Lastly, perhaps address the kicking game by signing gostkowski; I'm unsure if gano is the long term answer, although I do like the guy and would like to give him a chance.
you do know that we don't have a 6th or 3rd round pick right?

My bad about the 6th rd pick, but that doesn't really change the plan...

Re: This Offseason - BE THE OWNER!!!!!

If you are the owner, you can't sign Durant Brooks

Eagles sign punter Brooks to 2-year deal - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
Bruce Allen when in charge alone: 4-12 (.250)
Bruce Allen's overall Redskins record : 28-52 (.350)
Vinny Cerrato's record when in charge alone: 52-65 (.444)
Vinny's overall Redskins record: 62-82 (.430)
We won more with Vinny

Re: This Offseason - BE THE OWNER!!!!!

Well, not being a smart ass but I would do what the majority of the owners do, and most of them are very succesful at it.

Re: This Offseason - BE THE OWNER!!!!!

Hazard the GM: Has a great ring to it :-)


I WOULD SIGN(if they are cut, as rumored to be):

OG Ben Hamilton
OL Chris Kuper
OG Daryn Colledge
DE/OLB Jarvais Moss (very unlikely to be cut tho)
RB/FB Peyton Hillis
QB Jeff Garcia (if he is okay wit a backup job)

OL Ethan Albright (Since we signed Sundberg)
OL Mike Williams
C Casey Rabach (Since we signed Lichtensteiger)
DE Renaldo Wynn
(Possibly) WR Antwaan Randle El (if we can get a WR/KR in FA)
RB Rock Cartwright
RB Ladell Betts
RB Quinton Ganther

POSSIBLE TRADE: Make some sort of package deal sending Antwaan Randle El/Carlos Rogers/ to San Diego for Shawn Merriman if we cant get Jarvais Moss in FA. He didnt produce alot this year but next year will be the 2nd season after his knee surgery n should be much stronger. If we are switching to a 3-4, we need sum1 opposite Orakpo to cause problems and he has said that he would like to be back near the maryland area. We can tender Carlos for cheap then send him away so we get SUMTHING for him instead of just letting him go n get nothing.

DRAFT: (Im aware of our OLine needs, but this draft is loaded wit good OL so bear with me)

1st RND pick: Eric Berry FS Tennesse, if available. We need to get a starting FS so we can move Landry back to SS. No one was complaining about him when he played next to Sean Taylor R.I.P. in his regular position. If Berry is off the board, id trade down to later 1st round (get a 3rd rounder) and id pick up Taylor Mays. Once again, to move Landry back to his original spot. I realize Mays has slipped down boards wit inconsistent play but he has phenomenal physical tools and is coachable (plus i dont want him to end up on dallas) Last option: Russell Okung, yes he's good, but he isnt physical every play and isn't much better than other 1st round OT's

2nd RND pick: Charles Brown OT USC. If we dont go with Okung in the 1st round we HAVE TO grab the best tackle on the board here

3rd RND pick (if we traded back and got a 3rd RND pick): Jared Veldheer OT Hillsdale. Hes a SUPERB athlete, perfect for the zone blocking scheme. The man is 6'8" 315 lbs. and runs a 4.89 40. This would be a steal. I hope im the only one who uncovered this man and the redskins read this post lol.

4th RND pick: Jacoby Ford WR Clemson. The knock on him is he has small hands and can't keep the ball from his chest.....that hasn't stopped Desean Jackson, we all know 1st hand. Ford has ELITE speed as a sprinter and McCardell could really help tune his fundamentals. At the very least we get an upgrade at KR/PR

5th RND pick: John Jerry OG Mississippi or Devin Ross CB Arizona. Jerry is graded as a late 4th round early 5th round pick. If he slips to us, we gotta take him here. Would def get good value out of him. If not, id take CB Devin Ross, has good speed n we need to develop someone if we trade away or simply release carlos rogers.

7th RND pick:Travis Ivey DT Maryland. He wont set any speed records but @ 6'4" 340 he is quick for a big man and could play NT in our new 3-4 cuz i would put Haynesworth @ end.


QB Situation: I would tender Jason Campbell one more year. Im not a Campbell fan but he has experience and would come cheap for us. (I have two main problems with him #1 hes not a good leader and he has the same expression on his face when he throws a pick as when he throws a TD #2, hes been sacked so many times, i think hes developed happy feet and feels pressure that isnt there AKA turning into David Carr). I would let him and Colt Brennan battle it out for the starting spot. i AM a Colt Brennan fan and i think the Shanahan's offensive scheme could benefit him nicely. Just think, a strong defense (fingers crossed), a restored running game, which helps our play action (ala what the jets did with Sanchez this year) Brennan has a winners mentality and a very quick release. Just needs to be coached on his reads better and i think the Shanahan's and Matt Lefleur will help with that. I think this is a much better option than using the 4th overall pick on a bradford or clausen. Why waste a pick when u havent tested whether the guys on the current roster can succeed in ur system? Plus add Jeff Garcia for sum veteran leadership if he would accept that.

RB Situation: I will give Clinton Portis one more year to prove he's not washed up but he looked very slow last year before the concussion. i would limit his carries and keep him fresh by mixing in Anthony Alridge and Peyton Hillis. Anthony Alridge is a cheaper version of a Darren Sproles or Jerious Norwood. And Remember, Mike Shanahan is the one who suggested Anthony Alridge to us sayin "he is the fastest player ive ever seen with a football in his hand" And if Bobby Turner can teach him to carry the ball high and tight, we could have a dangerous weapon on our hands. Peyton Hillis is just a "can-do" everything back.

This was fun to do and got me to really think about things. Lemme know what you agree and disagree with.

Re: This Offseason - BE THE OWNER!!!!!

I've posted some links on Veldheer. Good to see someone else likes him. He could be a steal but if he has a good combine he'll probably move up. Some scouts consider him the 3rd highest rated LT.
Defense wins championships. Bring it!
