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.

Re: Mini camp news

Landry is up to 230 but that's still on the small side for LB. I do think he will be utilized better in this defense and won't be left alone as the "savior" where his coverage skills are exposed.

Re: Mini camp news

Anyone know why Landry has bulked up? I'm assuming he's bulked up w/muscle & not fat.

Re: Mini camp news

I'm guessing he's bulked up in anticipation of playing down in the box more this year. Have you seen the mini camp pic of him? I'd say there's no worry about him putting on fat.

Re: Mini camp news

I know, as well as everyone else, that OT is our biggest hole. However, Eric Berry really is the best player on the board. Landry could really help out near the line of scrimmage if we draft Berry, and look to signing guys like Flozell Adams for a year as stop-gap measures.

I'll repeat what everyone's said on here so far, Thursday is going to be crazy, and I can't wait for it. We have a lot of options.

Re: Mini camp news

Interesting to note that Jerry Porter worked out with the team this weekend:

Redskins Insider

At least three wide receivers took part in the three-day camp as a tryout for a permanent position, including Jerry Porter, a former second-round draft pick and nine-year veteran.

"There's a lot of talent around here," Porter said. "I've seen the offense from afar before. It's definitely an offense I'd like to be a part of."

Porter was drafted by the Raiders in 2000 when General Manager Bruce Allen was in the Oakland front office. He had nearly 4,000 receiving yards there from 2000 to '07.

Porter is a Washington native who attended Coolidge High and played at West Virginia. He said he's not certain what the Redskins' plans are for him.

"I don't know," he said. "I have no clue."

^ Marques Hagans and Roydell Williams worked out as well.

His goal is reportedly 240, up from 210. That would be an impressive bulk.

Redskins Insider - Landry puts trade rumors behind him, prepares for new defense
