Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

I wonder if there are people who are desperate in the draft this year who might want to take a third rounder from us for a second rounder next year. I'm all about taking the hit in one draft from RGIII. If we can swing that, then we can talk about moving back into the first next year if there's a player we really like.

That would be nice.

Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

Sure, that's very Madden-esque, but the bird in the hand might be well worth it to a team this year. Not only that, we have two fourths THIS year if there's a person we'd like at the end of the third round and we move that third.

I'd bet good money on it.


That's how I see it, I don't see why everyone is losing their minds.

Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

@ TheMalcolnConnection: Bruce Allen said that having 18 picks in two drafts is very productive. The Redskins front office can't be happier with what they've accomplished in last year's draft and what they set out to do in this coming draft. There's no reason for them to dip into the second round. One third rounder, two 4ths, a 5th, 6th, and 7th is enough draft picks and excellent selections to add talent and depth can be found in everyone of those rounds in the draft. Do we really need to attempt to trade back into the second round this draft?

Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

I don't think we need to move up in THIS draft, so much as I think that a third rounder this year for a second rounder next year (and maybe an additional late rounder) would be good value. I feel like this year, we can move definitely add some depth in the later rounds, but as the picks get higher, the odds of them panning out gets lower.

Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

Updated draft hopes

Round 1 RG3
Round 2 Mike Adams OT Ohio State
Round 3 Traded for 2nd round pick
Round 4 Traded for 2nd round pick
Round 4 Philip Blake C Blaylor
Round 5 Eddie Pleasant, SS Oregon
Round 6 Ryan Broyles WR Oklahoma
Round 7 Vontaze Burfict ILB Ariz St.

UDFA: Kellen Moore, QB Boise St.

I do want an explosive running back but not as much as I want to protect RGIII. We should resign Hightower, then grab our explosive RB next year.

Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

Vontaze Burfict was decent at Arizona St. but has had a very poor combine and a horrible pro day. Either he wasn't in shape, or he's not cut out to play in the NFL. If the Redskins draft him, I would surely be surprised.

Reminds me a lot about the concerns of Brandon Spikes. Is he still with the Pats? Any good? I haven't paid any attention

Only if Al Davis is alive. Other than that, wishful thinking.

I like the players in your mock although I think trading into the 2nd round will cost more then a 3rd+4th.

Mine hasn't changed too much from this:

If Burfict goes undrafted, then I wouldn't mind seeing him signed as a rookie free agent. Going undrafted may snap Burfict out of whatever has been wrong with him. But based on his berserk performances at the NFL combine and pro day, the Redskins, or no other team for that matter, should waste even as much as a 7th round draft pick on him.

IMO Burfict will end up in baltimore in the 3rd round they have the support team to turn him around.
