Jared Gaither for our second round pick?

Would you make that trade?

From Profootballtalk: Time is running out for teams to sign restricted free agent Ravens tackle Jared Gaither to an offer sheet, but he may be available for less than his first round tender.

NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, citing two Ravens sources, said Monday an offer of a "high second round" pick would get a team's foot in the door.

La Canfora suggests the Redskins as a possibility. If Washington didn't draft a tackle in the first round, they could potentially send their second round pick for Gaither.

There would be no April 15 deadline to sign Gaither to an offer sheet because it would be a straight trade.

By all accounts, Gaither played like a quality starting left tackle last year. That's why it's surprising Baltimore seems so open to moving him.

I wouldn't make this trade before we were on the clock in round 2. That way we could compare him to whatever OT is on the board there.

Re: Jared Gaither for our second round pick?

I would do it in a sec. He just turned 24, i guess why he had to go in the supplemental draft. I also feel like i remember hearing he was a Redskins fan as a kid.

The only bad thing ive heard about him, is that hes supposed to be a little slower then most o-line guys or football players in general. So if you do do it soon so he can start practicing and get him a tutor while hes learning the play book.

Re: Jared Gaither for our second round pick?

According to Scouts Inc, Gaither would fit more in a power blocking scheme, rather than Shanny's zone block. At 340 pounds it sort of makes sense. I guess Baltimore has the luxury of getting rid of one of their talented tackles, and given needs at getting some youth at the WR position and just about everywhere on defense, it would make sense. Besides, I would say that they didn't draft Oher to keep him on the right side.

I guess this would be a way to get Bradford and a starting quality tackle, if Shanny feels that Gaither would fit in our line (scheme-wise). Although, I would get him for a second rounder even if we trade down. Although I would defer to those that know more than I do, would Gaither be better than any 2nd rounder tackle? My gut says yes.

Re: Jared Gaither for our second round pick?

I would make that move. I would like a lower pick back, though.

Yea, that's a good call. I wonder if he'll still be available at that point?

Re: Jared Gaither for our second round pick?

sure, we need someone for LT. i dont care if he fits the zbs or not, we need guys that can keep any qb we start upright. it certainly opens up our options at 4......

Re: Jared Gaither for our second round pick?

If they think that he'd fit well I'd be all for it if someone doesn't drop to us in the 2nd.

Agree with this. Plus I'm not even sure Gaither fits what we need. And from what I understand he basically needs a round the clock babysitter to get him to practice, keep him alert during film sessions...do we need someone like that really? Are we trying to go with an all Terps OL or something?

I would be skeptical about anything JLC says even if he told me the sky was blue.

Agreed. We should just draft our own tackles.

Re: Jared Gaither for our second round pick?

Draft Okung...and bring in a young hungry guy who will be molded into a true "Redskin" by Shanahan...instead of guy the ravens dont want.......BUT if we make the mistake of drafting a QB @ 4......snatch him up pronto!!!

Re: Jared Gaither for our second round pick?

Jared Gaither is far better than any OT we could hope to get between rounds 2-7
Hes a proven player thats still young, and hes shown the ability to hold down the left side. MAke the trade, a 2nd rounder for him is a STEAL.........
