Re: What is the team's biggest need after the draft?

The biggest needs are still all same, regardless of the draft IMO... Yes, we drafted Trent Williams (which I'm absolutely in joy for) but he isn't proven player, just not yet.. Like few posters said, the only proven players on O-line are Doc and Rabach.. However, Shanahan has announced that he's going to use zone-blocking scheme, which we are not sure whether if Doc and Rabach will fit in well.. Yes, Shanahan have said that he's impressed and perhaps is satisfied with the players.. But in our fans eyes, we don't believe so.. So, in my opinions, I think we still need to get much competitions as we can get for O-line, in order to have the most best available players we can get.. We will find out if our needs are actually taken care of later in middle of season..

The other needs are FS, ILB, and maybe WRs.. I very much would love for Thomas and Kelly to have plenty of opportunities they can get - this is only way we will find out whether if they are busts or not.. Our offense pretty much would stall if our WRs doesn't produce, which probably is the reason why we still should find a decent WR through free agent (TO comes to mind but I cannot stand the thought of him wearing Redskins uniform).. But fortunately for us, we have Cooley and Davis - we have players we could use that would help us greatly, suppose if our WRs does not produce..

On either Redskins.com article or Redskins Insider notes; it said that Spanos (our new LB coach) have studied extensively on Riley and wanted him.. Since Steelers have history of uncovering LB gems and I'm hoping that it's relatively large due to Spanos; because if it is, then we have good chance of having a good player out from Riley..

One poster asked why not many of us have love for Kareem Moore - he haven't really proved us much.. He did play couple of times last season but he did nothing that showed us that he's playmaker or anything like that.. However, Redskins did not try to address FS position through free agent nor draft.. So based on this, I'm going to assume that Redskins are satisfied with the Safety players..

Re: What is the team's biggest need after the draft?

I think we need a good change pace of running back to knock Willie Parker's ass off the roster. That's the number one need, in my opinion.

I think --hope-- that Trent Williams will change the dynamic of the offensive line in a positive way. Meaning the overall line play and chemistry up front will more than likely improve. I just don't see us collapsing along the front like we did under Zorn. There were many factors contributing to our poor line play last season, injuries were among the top reasons though.

The biggest need is depth at OT and FS.

Yeah, but every other team doesn't have Stephanie Heyer as their RT.

True, true...Heyer seems to be a thorn in our side. Someone needs to just beat him out this year.

Re: What is the team's biggest need after the draft?

By far the biggest immediate need is at LB.... Carter cant play OLB, and Rocky isnt big enough for ILB...Then RT, Hicks is better suited for RG/LG or depth..

I think the players were well aware of the silly shit JZ and VC had them doing last year. I am confident we will see a difference in....effort as they will put out a better effort for Shanny

Re: What is the team's biggest need after the draft?

I'll say DB's...and perhaps some confidence now! it goes a long way.

I felt that sometimes last season our guys went into a game expecting to lose...hopefully shanaman changes that.

Right Tackle. I'm comfortable with letting Moore and Doughty compete for FS.

Re: What is the team's biggest need after the draft?

Its pretty obvious to me that we'll bring in a WR at some point. I just have no idea who it could be. The FAs available arent' very impressive. maybe we'll get lucky and a team will make a surprise cut.

Re: What is the team's biggest need after the draft?

Not sure it's a need but my biggest area of concern is linebacker. I think Orakpo will be fine but...Fletcher isn't getting any younger, Wilson is still very very raw, I don't think Rocky will be here by the time the regular season starts, not even sure HB Blades will, not sure what Haslett is going to do that will make Carter an effective 3-4 LB when he wasn't in San Fran, Jarmon and Alexander are also question marks at new positions.

Re: What is the team's biggest need after the draft?

why do you think we'd trade rocky? i can't imagine we'd get anything worthwhile for him, so we might as well just keep him for another year.
