Re: 2010 NFL Off-Season Rumors and Reports (Week 4)

I'm curious about Trent Williams. Most reports I've read about him say he may be better suited for RT. Some say he should get a shot at LT and if nothing else you'll have a great RT for years. He played RT until last year and then took Phil Loadbolts spot. He had a great combine and seemed to show he has what a LT needs to be successful. I wonder if he's undervalued after playing only 1 year at LT? He's good, but good enough to play LT?

Re: 2010 NFL Off-Season Rumors and Reports (Week 4)

Most scouts/execs seem to believe that with Trent Williams' athleticism he can pretty quickly adapt to being an LT. Last year was really his first year playing LT. Right now he's a better RT than LT for sure, but he does offer the flexibility that Shanahan likes. Bulaga is similar in that he can probably play both, but I think he's better suited to play RT.

I think the best LT for us, and the one who will be the best 5 years from now when we look back on this draft is Charles Brown. I don't know that I would take him at #4 though. He's more of a late 1st, maybe early 2nd. Though I'd be surprised if he makes it to #37

Re: 2010 NFL Off-Season Rumors and Reports (Week 4)

I could see us trading with Buff. and picking up their 1st, 2nd and 5th round picks for our 1st and 4th round picks. They would be guaranteed either Brad. or Claussen, and we would be set up to get a starting LT, plus we get the 41st pick in the 2nd round, good quality will be there, could possibly get Taylor Mays at that spot as well (a little Sean Tayloresque....), plus we still have the 37th pick, which should definitely be another T or OG, although, this year it seems that there are a higher # of NFL quality T's than there are G's. Can't ever recall a season with so many Tackles, and so few quality guards. Weird.

I've been advocating this for a while now. I'd love to get SF's #13 and #17, but would settle for Browns #9 and the two #3rd rounders.

We made out very well last year at #13.

If we got 2 1rst rounders I'm pretty sure I'd pee myself. In this scenario do we keep our 2nd rounder or am I getting greedy? Thanks for the info SmootSmack. That's kinda what I thought about Williams. I would be happy to get Charles Brown. I think he'd be great in Shanahans scheme.

I'm pretty sure the punt returner job is open and I doubt you could do any worse than what we had last year Bud. :thumb: I wish Firstdown had Matt Terl's job, reading his blog would be hilarious.

Mayock and Cory Chaveous seem to believe that this is the deepest draft class thats come around in a long time. At the same time though they believe that there is an absurd amount of depth on the defensive side of the ball rather then the offensive side. If what they say is true then I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of quality tackles slip through to the second round, Brown could easily be one of them.

At the same time I have absolutely no idea where Bruce Campbell will end up. His stock is more confusing then Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy combined.

Re: 2010 NFL Off-Season Rumors and Reports (Week 4)

Someone will take a chance on Campbell, but most believe he's greatly overrated

Ducasse is one that I really don't know where he'll go, Iupati as well

Saffold is creeping into the late 1st/early 2nd round. And Selvish Capers is someone else who will probably be there in the early 2nd (probably even the late 2nd)

Jason Fox's recurring injuries have him dropping

If you could do Bradford-Capers or Okung-McCoy, personally I'd prefer the Bradford-Capers combination. If you could do Clausen-Saffold or Bulaga-LeFevour, personally I'd prefer the Clausen Saffold combination

Re: 2010 NFL Off-Season Rumors and Reports (Week 4)

McCoy's biggest drawback seems to be arm strength. It would be interesting to know how it compares to Montana's when he played. I mean, he didn't exactly have a rocket arm did he?

Iupati is a first rounder
Saffold is a decent T/G but is NOT an NFL LT
I'm perfectly fine with fox's stock dropping because I think he could be our eventual starting RT, just once his knee gets back to normal

My dream Combo would be Bradford Charles Brown
My most likely to happen combo would be Okung Tebow
My I don't want to happen combo would be Trent Williams LeFeavour
The Combo the redskins really need is Okung Ducasse/Saffold
