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

Griffin is now our QB of the future and we need to build around him.
But we've also lost our 2nd round pick.

In light of these events how would you like to see the FO attack this off-season both via FA and draft?

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

Maybe Indy picks RGIII and we end up with Luck, you never know. I say trade the 3rd, one of the 4th rounders and add Hall to move into the 2nd round and pick a CB, S, OL or WR whatever looks best in that round.

I'd say either way our QB needs weapons so Garcon, Jackson, etc. Whoever but we need a WR or two. I agree we do need help at corner for sure but hall isn't going anywhere

Since they are likely to address WR in FA they should look to add a safety in the third round.

You almost read my mind. I like it.

Soliai would be great. Then Cofield can spend more time at end, which is a better spot for him.

However, we have two fourths. I'd be more willing to trade back one of them than to trade back the 3rd round pick. I might even package lower round picks to move back into the third with another pick.

Bottom line to which most would agree: We can't spend what we spent on Griffin without providing him with weapons and protection.

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

Areas of Concern

WR -- RG3 needs a legit #1 WR (i.e. Vincent Jackson, Marques Colston)

OL -- Need a new RT for OL to be successful. Liked what Willie Smith had to show at the end of the season. Not much to pick from in FA... Could use some competition at OG. (Paul McQuistan?, Jeff Backus?)

DB -- Hall just didn't get it done last season IMO. Play maker? Yes, but too inconsistent in coverage. Need a true shutdown corner. Not sure how we handle Landry and the safety position. Time will tell...

These are my 3 top areas of concern going into FA. Of course re-signing Fletch is very important, but I don't see it as the be all, end all. If we fix these areas of concern in any way that betters the team, I will be a happy camper.

So true but we want weapons that will be with us for a while we don't weapons that are great now & when RG3 is hitting his stride in 2 or 3 yrs they are old in NFL terms.

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

I would say the Redskins have to either draft for need in the remaining rounds from rounds 3 through 7. But first, they have to do an excellent job in free agency. They must find a WR. Whether that wide receiver is Colston, Garcon, or V. Jackson. With the addition of one of those receivers, it will improve the passing game. Gaffney, Moss, Cooley,Hankerson, Paul, Davis, Armstrong, and Stallworth all have the potential to be great. To add not only a solid, but productive free agent wide receiver to that receiving corps could only aid in the overall passing game. The right tackle position also needs to be addressed. LT, LG, C, and RG are pretty much solid. Although the offensive line receives criticism, I like our o-line. We just need a more productive right tackle. Maurice Hurt might be able to solidify himself there. If not, we should draft a young prospect or get one in free agency.

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

Good thread.

I'd like to see them approach it aggressively. Not reckless. I've had enough of that for this week. But instead of throwing a truck load of money at Vincent Jackson, even though we know we're just going to have him on the downside of his career, I'd be aggressive in the WR trade market.

I would sign these players to relatively large money deals:

S Dwight Lowery
S LaRon Landry

I would sign these players to starters salaries:

OT Marcus McNeill (1 year - $4 million, pending release of course)
LB Geno Hayes
LB Erin Henderson OR LB London Fletcher

I would pick these players out of the bargain bin:

CB Tim Jennings
WR Chaz Schilens
RB LaDainian Tomlinson

To go with a number of re-signings we would already be considering. And I would look to bring in help at WR that is perhaps a better fit for our system. Jackson is a good fit, but a big money deal at 29 probably makes as much sense as a big money deal to Haynesworth at age 28, a guy who also fit our scheme.

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

Maybe Markelle Martin in the 3rd since we will sign a WR maybe 2.

Cut:
Armstrong
Banks
Austin
Stallworth
Try to trade Moss for a 4th or 5th and if no one takes him think about cutting him

An offense of:
QB Robert Griffin III
RB Roy Helu/Evan Royster
FB Darrell Young
WR Vincent Jackson/Leonard Hankerson/Jabar Gaffney/Eddie Royal/Santana Moss
TE Fred Davis/Chris Cooley
LT Trent Williams
LG Ben Grubbs
C David Molk
RG Chris Chester
RT Willie Smith?
RB/WR/KR/PR Chris Rainey

Looks pretty good doesn't it?

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

I'm not a big Eddie Royal fan, but just so all you VT guys don't think I hate your team, I would want to see what kind of cash it would cost to get Josh Morgan locked up.

RT one word, Willie Smith. He proved he could play against some of the best pass rushers the last 5 games and held his own, he will get better.
