This close to the draft every word coming from teams should be considered a smokescreen

I like this: "Washington's Bruce Allen & Mike Shanahan are championship smokescreeners or simply uninformative." From @SI_PeterKIng's MMQB.

The Skins FO has done a good job of giving no hints as to what in the world they are going to do at 4. I hope we have some major trade options available.

PFT: Smokescreen.

Like PFT says, if Bradford slips we would probably pick him. But how will that possibly happen?

Berry can do it all. Almost all of those 14 interceptions were in his first two years.
Monte then changed the Defense and what Berry's role was. The Vols were paper thin at LB position and Berry played the run his last year. He can lay a nasty hit on you and can tackle in the open field. He will make any defense better in mutiple ways.

We need a big ugly, but passing on Berry will be a historical mistake. He will be a HOF.

Stranger things.

If Bradford doesn't go 1 then he has a better than average chance to get to us. Obviously Det isn't taking him so at 3 TB would have the choice of the other DT(assuming one of them went 1) the best QB, the best S, the best OT. God knows what that monkey team would do with all those options. They'll probably screw it up and take the DT but maybe they'll get some sense and take Bradford.

Bradford will go #1, the Rams would be insane to pass on him.

Maybe McNabb's extension process isn't going well.

This.

The fact that StL hasn't gotten a contract done is interesting. I guess maybe they're using the top picks against each other to maybe get the best deal. So they'll just take the cheapest option? Why else would they not be negotiating yet? They have to know what player they like best by now.

Re: Report: skins say they will pick a qb with the 4th pick..

too many people get caught up in that 4-12 record last season.

I see a team that had enough talent that we almost finished 8-8. Games like the Cowboys 7-6 loss. Or the loss to Detroit. or even the final game against San Diego.
This team had the worst coaching staff in the league, worst game planning, changed offensive coodinators in mid season, had the most conservative defensive coach in history, had the Owner meeting weekly and pressuring the coach, had the operations director(mini G.M.) Vinnie tearing the club apart with his changes and silly remarks, and just generally the Redskins were falling apart all last season. Plus the entire offensive line was injury prone as was everybody else because of a lack of training.

Yet this team remained competitive and nearly finished 8-8 because of a field goal or 2 that got missed. Enter Donovan McNabb, Mike Shanahan, and Bruce Allen, and hopefully a replacement for Chris Samuels, and this team could be 10-6. This team as it stands now, is probably only a couple of players away from being a playoff team because we need a left tackle and we could use another guard as well.

So those of you who believe that picking up 4-5 extra draft picks and bringing in 6 or 7 rookies will make this team better...think again. Rookies rarely have an impact on a team outside of a few #1 draft picks. I think ONE great rookie will have more impact than a handfull of lower round picks.

Draft Okung and be done with it.

They're probably just holding out hope that someone wants to make a deal and trade up.

I hear ya to a degree but 4-12 is 4-12. The shoulda, coulda, woulda argument doesn't do much for me.

Fact is we have a lot of needs and if we can pick up some extra picks in this deep draft those picks could go a long way in helping to rebuild the core of this roster.

I think we'll end up taking Okung at #4 but we could end up making some deals later involving players (JC?) to pick up some extra picks.

Yeah I guess but that is a dangerous risk. Once they draft a guy they lose every bit of contract leverage that they currently hold. They need a lot to nmake that a good team but they have a shot at a franchise QB. Not time to dick around. Sign him before the draft and avoid a holdout.

Yeah who knows, maybe we'll start hearing some buzz this week about them negotiating with someone. If not maybe there is some genuine interest from someone in dealing up?
