I do have a strong suspicion (actually, more than a personal suspicion) that this might be more than a bluff. At least that: the Redskins haven't decided against taking Jimmy Clausen with the 4th pick.

Certainly though, it's no more likely than on the day we made the McNabb trade. Surprisingly, it's just not less likely.
Add this to Kyle Shanahan's OL comments, and it seems like a not to subtle ploy to get Seattle/Cle/Buffalo to pull the trigger on a trade. 4 days and counting to round 1.

Re: Mini camp news

I think it's a lot of things, serving a lot of purposes. I do think it's calucated, and not a coincidence. I just don't think it's utter bullsh-t, as a lot of people are going to read it as.

I think there's some fire here.

Re: Mini camp news

When listening to offers for him, I was referring to the ESPN video on the Redskins' mini-camp. The reporter they had sent said that when speaking to Shanahan about Haynesworth, the coach said they were listening to offers but were not actively dealing him ... While they may say that they are not looking to trade him right away, it certainly seems like something they are considering

Re: Mini camp news

Also: what is intentioned by suggesting they'll take "a quarterback"? That it doesn't matter who is available? We're just going to take whoever.

Next face of the franchise? Eh, whatever we can get.

Not necessarily, I think they would be happy with either Bradford or Clausen. One is going to be there at #4 unless the Rams, Detroit or Tampa make a trade. Only the Rams and Tampa could use a QB, but I think Tampa wants something else.

At this point though I think we are hillaciously smoke screening in order to move down to get more picks. I can see them being satisfied with our LT positions right now even though we fans are not. We have McNabb so I don't see us picking up a QB. RB is set for now unless we are thinking power back. TE is set. WR has some question with Kelly, and ARE's spot is still available.

Offensively:
LT
QB
WR

Defensively:
LB
FS
CB

Like your post this is how i see it:

Offensively:
LT
QB - next yr.
WR - if possible pick up a veteran, although i think the guys we have will shine this year.

Defensively:
LB
FS
CB- we have enough competition in camp already[/QUOTE]

For as close as MS plays things to the vest, I think it's really, really unlikely that any "leaked" information about what we're going to do with that 4th pick has any weight.

I think we're trying to drum up interest by another team in that 4th pick. We have SOOO many needs, and the fewest picks of ANY team in the league. Ignoring the offensive line to take a QB at #4 would be extremely stupid unless it's Bradford, and there's no chance he's gonna be there.

The 1st point in bold- Tampa has exactly a 0% chance of drafting a QB with their first pick. They picked Josh Freeman in the 1st round last year, and he played some pretty good games down the stretch. No way they go that route again. I think it's a near certainty they take McCoy, Suh, or Berry with their first pick, unless someone offers a king's ransom to move up to their spot.

To 2nd point- we're probably set for now, but I still think there's a chance that either Parker or Johnson won't make the final cut. I had to bet, I'd say someone camp trash will be our treasure (relatively speaking), and/or we use one of our late picks on a back.

Re: Mini camp news

I just hope Detroit passes on Okung so we get him at 4. Hopefully they draft another Tackle in round 4 or 5, and get a Linebacker, and a RB or DB. That is all I expect, and all I hope for out of this draft.

We are stuck with the 4 picks we have, let's just hope they make the best of it, and fill some holes.

Trading a starting player, or Campbell, for a late 4th, or worse, round pick only hurts the team in my opinion.

Yeah man.. that's why I don't want to draft Okung, he's given up a sack before. Reminds me of Heyer.

Re: Mini camp news

Nice write up from the examiner:
Rick Snider: At first glance, lots to do | Washington Examiner

Quote:
Teammates stared at quarterback Donovan McNabb, bewildered that the Redskins' nemesis is actually on their side. The former Philadelphia star opened Sunday with a 40-yard strike, which Washington has seen from him before -- only this time it was a good thing.
Not a deep read, but sounds like the mini camp was positive all around.
I do have a question, for anybody who might know, at Shanahan's press conference he was asked about a demerit board or infraction board, and the way I understood it, if you make a discipline type mistake you get ding'ed for it. Does anyone know any more of what that is?

Re: Mini camp news

Speaking of "smoke screens" the way the Shanahan's have described our O-line personnel would lead one to believe they're satisfied (at least to some extent) with much of what we already have in place. Could this be a draft disguise or has our personnel been a subject of devalue?

Maybe it's not the intention to draft a tackle at #4 at all, if they decide not too, it would be great if we could find a trade partner to acquire more picks that we so desperately need.

Re: Mini camp news

So Laron Landry looks absolutely, ridiculously huge.
We know since he got moved to FS that he hasn't played to his potential, BUT:
- He has great speed
- He fit really well playing SS near the line his last year at LSU
-He now looks bigger than some of our D-linemen

Any chance we move him to LB, then draft Berry for FS, SS is a dogfight between Horton and Doughty, and we have a shored up LB and Secondary core.

We can take a stop gap approach with O-line, though I'd prefer a LT or trade back.

I just brought this up only because it looks like Landry cycled once or twice in the offseason, or did nothing but eat, sleep, shit in the gym for 3 months.
