Even if the Redskins wanted to trade up, Minnesota would be better suited to partner with than the Rams.
Cleveland could trade up for Luck too leaving Griffin at 6. I'm not so sure they would go QB either though.

Maybe. The main obstacles it seems right now are the Seahawks and the Dolphins (though I think the Seahawks will sign Flynn and the Dolphins have been linked to Flynn, Orton, and even Manning). With us it was essentially 3 teams battling over 2 QBs (Landry and Tannehill) per the scuttlebutt. With us having the upper hand of course (unfortunately).

Now it's just a battle for Tannehill and a team like the Dolphins may trade up for Tannehill with the Bucs at 5. Though I don't really see that happening.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Not defending him or vouching for him, but Hoyer hasn't really had the opportunities Flynn has had.

But look Hoyer is not being discussed to be brought in as the guy here. Neither is Josh Johnson or even Jimmy Clausen. Those are all essentially 2012 Rex/Beck replacements. Meaning backups...who may be pressed into starting duty.

I'm trying to get some more info...but it's been kind of like pulling teeth right now

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

ill ask this again...why do people think hoyer is anything? he was an unhyped prospect out of college who has hardly played in the nfl. why does anyone think he can be a starting qb? has he been warming the bench well or something? dont get it.

I don't know. I've hardly seen him play. Just reporting what I've heard.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Hoyer would be a good signing along w a rookie IMO, but just Hoyer and say Grossman... IDK

I'm curious as to the level these QB discussions reach within the organization? are these just scouts just spitballing ideas or are these reports coming from meetings involving both shanahan and Allen?

This part of the draft process is so secret yet so interesting to me. I'm just trying to get an understanding of how it works.

I've been hearing his name since last years draft when Kiper and McShay (mostly Kiper) kept referring to him on the First Draft Podcast. So I guess I can believe it. Then again he (Kiper) spoke of Caleb Hanie with the same type of enthusiasm as Hoyer so take it with a grain of salt.

Hoyers buzz seems to have stemmed from his reputation in practice as well as strong preseason performances.

At this stage, it's largely scouts and position coaches. With our season over the coordinators, head coach and management will start to dive into the process more thoroughly

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

If RGIII is not available at 6th trade back into the middle of the 1st round and draft the G Decastro from Stanford then draft Kirk Cousins in the 2nd round to be our Qb. The guy is a winner and a natural leader. Plus we'd also have extra picks to build more depth which is what our team needs to build. HTTR! Also draft Kellen Moore in the 4th if still available.

I love the "Kerigan" trade back idea! The B&G need more of an infusion of talent at every line position as well as QB/LB/OL/DL/DB/S/WR pretty much everywhere! Closer to draft day, all on here will know every potential 1st throught 7th round picks. Will we get an extra 7th for C. Rogers?

Funny how there are two sides to every story. lol. I could have sworn there was an article about the Browns owner being "infatuated" with RGIII way back in Oct. or Nov. I can't find it. Leading up to the end of the season there has been much speculation as to whats going to happen to McCoy. You get on concussion and it makes it easier for you to get a second and after it keeps getting easier with every new concussion. So I can see where the Brown would want to explore possibly taking a QB in this years draft:
Shurmur won’t say if McCoy, Hillis have a future in Cleveland | ProFootballTalk

Then there is Holmgren mentioning there will be QB competition next year:
Holmgren: McCoy will face quarterback competition | ProFootballTalk

Then there is this little ditty:
Shurmur on RG3: “Good players fit in every offense” | ProFootballTalk

Shurmur being the HC might get into trouble for the comment above:
Shurmur possibly will be hearing from the league over Griffin remarks | ProFootballTalk

Whats my point.... don't rule the Browns out of wanting a QB. Too many people here seem to think that because the Browns drafted McCoy last year they won't take another QB, or that because the team needs a RB they won't take a QB. I'm telling you.... "IF" RGIII does not get taken by the Colts, there are still possibilities that the other 4 teams ahead of the Skins might take a QB. Rumor is the Rams might take him and trade Bradford or keep both because of Bradfords contract. Another rumor is the Vikes might be interested and they could draft RGIII and trade or cut Ponder.
As I pointed out the Browns are salivating at the thought of drafting RGIII so it's almost no way he'd make it past them. and lastly the Bucks. We don't know who their HC is going to be and or who that HC might want as his QB when he gets there.

Personally moving up will cost too much especially with now a limited supply of top ranked QB's waiting to be drafted. Before we had Luck, RGIII, Landry, Barkley. Two are staying in college and if we have to move up you don't think those teams ahead of us aren't thinking ...how bad does someone want RGIII?

I foresee us either taking a top WR as a weapon, especially if we get a FA QB then drafting another QB in the second round, or we move back for more picks and still do what I said.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Anyone who thinks the Browns would not strongly consider RG3 is in the minority. Most Redskins fans who want RG3 realize the Browns are the biggest obstacle. They need to trade up to have any chance of getting him...someone will either take him for themselves or trade the pick long before he gets to #6.

After watching Cousins in the bowl game and YouTubing some videos of him speaking with media, I would be very comfortable with him as the future Skins QB. He has a fairly strong arm plus he shows some mobility, and most of all guys follow him. He will bring the lunch pale to work everyday. Skins need more guys like that.
