We have drafted ONE O-lineman in the top two rounds of the last ELEVEN drafts. I will concede that the 2012 1st round pick almost has to be a QB, but I want to see more than one high OL draft selection a decade.
The first thing is to figure if there is any OL that will grade that highly in THIS YEAR'S draft. Both Iupati and Davis were predicted in the mocks to be taken rather highly. Not to mention getting two 1st round picks is easier said than done.

Frank Gore is a damn good back as well. He was producing big well before the arrival of those fellows. Now, we DO have a back who might reach that level in Helu, but again, the OLprospect must be good enough to be taken with a 1st round pick first.

Can he catch out of the backfield. I think our attack next week should be Beck at shotgun with Helu on one side and either Paul or Hank on the other side, Davis at TE and Gaffney and Paul/Austin at WRs. Let the WRs run deep, Davis as a decoy and throw it to the shotgun RB or WR.

Re: Positions Which Need to Be Addressed

Our best player is always the next available guy. That's why Jonathan Crompton, Tashard Choice, and Aldrick Robinson shall lead us!

I've seen a few mock drafts where they have the Redskins drafting Matt Barkley of USC and Robert Griffin III of Baylor. Griffin III is definitely the better QB. They need a CB and possibly a veteran WR through free agency. And maybe one or two offensive lineman.
Barkley and Griffin III are long shots to come out in this draft. And apparently Landry Jones is going to stay one more year as well. The real class of QB's is likely to look like this.

1st Round
Luck - Stanford
Folles - Arizona

2nd Round
Tannenhill - A&M

3rd Round
Kirk Cousins - Michigan State
Brandon Weeden - Ok State
Kellen Moore


Compare that to last year.

1st Round
Newton
Locker
Gabert
Ponder

2nd Round
Dalton
Kapernick

3rd Round
Mallet

See what happens when you wait a year?!?!!

CB- Someone who can shut down one side of the field.

WR- A playmaker. I'd take the best FA WR available no matter the cost and pick up another from the draft. Hopefully next year our WR's we already have will be developed.
You need either a high draft pick or pay a lot of money in free agency in order to get this (unless you get very lucky with a low draft pick). At this point, I really want to use the majority of our resources in the offense, and I don't see a dire need to spend a lot of money on a shut down corner.

According to this, he sounds similar to what Hightower is now.

But according to this, he needed some more polish in pass catching.

But this individual praises his pass catching ability.

One thing is for sure though, the dude runs hard.

Redskins looking to add a depth WR today. Making some calls (no, not to TO or Randy Moss, as a preemptive answer). More like journeyman vets.

Re: Positions Which Need to Be Addressed

If you are waiting on a roster that has stars at every position IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. Coaches put players in postions to succeed, it is easy to cry roster but we have players. We should be able to do something. We should be able to do what our players are capable of. On this board people do not like players like Crabtree, Braylon Edwards, QBs from spread offenses that run, or players from the U like Gore. Those players have talent we keep passing them up and then losing to them.

OK, so if T.O. and Randy Moss is out, then whom would be a journeyman vet? Ocho Cinco might get released but not until another week or two.
