I've seen posts about taylor replacing bowen but if taylor is drafted, wouldn't bowens be moved to the other safety spot and taylor would in fact be replacing ohalete? I don't see bowen getting cut or playing as a backup for what we gave up to get him and what he's being paid.

Thats right if we get tayler, they'll move Bowen to Strong Safety his more natural position. Ohatlete would probably no longer start, but will still see time because there are a lot of 3 safety formations in GW defense.

Great comparison to Suggs of last year. People talked themselves out of believing what they saw on the field from him and he slipped down right into the Ravens lap. Suggs should have been a top 5 pick, and his play on the field last year justified that thinking.
Matty72,
I could not agree with you more. Another over-analyzed player last year is WR Anquan Boldin. He dropped to the bottom of the second round because he had a slow 40 time in these idiotic workouts. Five WR's were drafted ahead of him including rookie bust Redskin WR Taylor Jacobs. Anquan Boldin had the best year of all rookie WR's last year, including rookie Cardinal teammate WR Bryant Johnson, from Penn State, who was a first round draft pick.

I just want to clearify once again so everyone knows, that Tayler was out of shape because he had just been recovering from a hamstring injury. Anybody who has ever had a hamstring injury knows it take about 3 weeks at the minimum to heal. Plus lets remember he ran a 4.5 40, which is still pretty damn good. It wasn't the 4.3 he's been rumored to be able to do. But with a few weeks of working out again and full health he might be able to do it. Then there was the issue of his weak weight lift. Lets remember though that the guy is 20 years old. He's got PLENTY of time to get in the weight room. To me that just adds to his greatness. Even though the guy is not a power house in the weight room, he still hits you with everything on the field. Thats the kind of passion I think is gonna make him a great player. Just look at ray louis, not the biggest linebacker(6-1 245) but he hits you with everything he has. As i'm sure you all can tell my now i really hope we draft tayler.

That's a lot of info!

That's a lot of information! I'm surprised it didn't have the times performed and the amounts of food consumed at the local buffet and salad bar though!

taylor is a solid player, but trading down and grabbing Wilfork or Starks is the best play here... we need run D

Taylor is a man!! Please Dan and Joe, please draft him. He's gonna be a beast, and there nothing like a safety NAILING a WR across the middle!! It's the greatest play in Football

I'd have to say that a blindside safety blitz would be my call. Watching the QB's neck whip back then get driven into the turf makes me very happy. The WR suffer enough with chipped nails and their jerseys getting messy.

Maybe this has been posted already but this is from Mort's chat wrap on Wednesday:

Chris Mortensen: I think the Skins are open to trading if it makes sense. Otherwise, I've still got Sean Taylor pegged for their spot - although Taylor did not have an impressive workout on Miami's Pro Day. Nevertheless, he is a heck of a player.

if for some reason we don't draft taylor(someone ahead of does, we draft winslow, or trade down) why not try to sign Brock Marion to about a 3 year deal? he may be 33 but he is a tackle machine and always seems to be around the ball. the lack of contract offers should help lower his asking price and he'd be an upgrade over both of our starters from last year. just another scenario to throw out there.
