Re: Redskins 2011 Draft = Big Success

Disagree, I think its a little overly optimistic.

Kerrigan is an A-/B+ IMO. He's a solid pick, but not a stud. His stats I believe to be a little misleading. Pretty much every sack I've seen him make he is either untouched, or not being blocked by an O-linemen. Once he beats his first couple double team's then I'll conceed the A+

Jenkins was a pre-season A but now is TBD.

Hankerson is a TBD, but looks promising.

Helu is a C IMO. Nothing more than a guy that can play as the 3rd RB for a long time in the NFL. Most of his yards seem to come from draws on long downs. I don't see him being able to carry the load on any week. Not a bad guy to throw in the mix though.

Re: Redskins 2011 Draft = Big Success

well, based on plasyer performance they did fine, but on origanizational roster building (ie not getting a good QB or OL guys) they failed miserably.

Truthfully, it's way too soon to be grading this years draft.

So one Kerrigan beats a few double teams he's a A? I've seen Nield beat a few double teams this year. He's an A!

Nice grade system lol

I doubt that's true. All I'm saying is that to be an A plass rusher, you have to beat the double team, not get to the qb by beating tight ends and backs.

Re: Redskins 2011 Draft = Big Success

IMO This draft class was significantly better draft then past seasons. We have 9 of 12 draft picks that have seen the field and made an impact in one form or another is huge. Not to mention that we obtained all of these players by trading down and not losing picks in this years draft.

3 of Kerrigans sacks this year have been when he's beaten the RT, 2 were from just hustle when the QB scrambled...

Now when you say plass rusher, do you mean the loose Norwegian translation for place or are you referring to to the American automobile "the Plass", made by Reuben Plass in 1897? Just wanted to check before I respond to your post.

2 "were just from hustle"? Seriously? I wish EVERY player who "just hustle" on every play.

How else, was I suppose to say that? Kerrigan has two sacks from relentless pace at the QB while the QB scrambled out of the pocket? lol.. I'm confused at your comment.

Honestly I was confused by your comment...it seemed like you were saying because those were hustle plays they were somehow devalued and took away from his strong rookie season. Apparently I misinterpreted what you meant. LOL.

Re: Redskins 2011 Draft = Big Success

I'm confused by "he has to consistently beat the double team." I can't think of anyone who beats a double team consistently.

One game does not a player make. But Helu looked pretty impressive when he's gotten the start, and -- against a good run defense today vs. Seahawks. The jump-over-the-guy for TD is one of our few highlights for the season. Also had a decent presence in the passing game.

I think Helu gets an A given how low he was drafted, based on potential so far. We'll see in 3 years if this remains true.

Helu is my last hope to have any chance in Fantasy Football this year.
