At least 3 high rounders who we would be lucky to have a shot at in the third round. After the third round, you're either taking a big guy and hoping to teach him to be good, or you're taking a smaller guy with the skill set (like Neild) and asking him to put on weight for the role.

The three are

Poe, Memphis
Ta'amu, Washington
Chapman, Alabama

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

What happend to Aaron ross? Haven't heard where he is or what he's doing.

Side note:

I'm glad we traded for RG3 more and more because Matt Flynn signed with Seattle not miami like expected. Would have cost more had Miami of know this and manning.

Cofield was below average as far as as all defensive tackles go, but that might have just been an effect of the scheme, i.e. he's doing the job of two men in a 4-3 scheme. Same with Carriker and Bowen I suppose, although Bowen wore down considerably after a hot start. He wasn't good at all when we had that long losing streak.



I wouldn't pick any of the five as not NFL caliber. I think it's just mostly a group of available guys, and Jenkins, the prospect who hasn't played a snap yet.


Bowen and Carriker did combine for 11.5 sacks.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

I think Chris Neild will be our Jay Ratliff, late round pick turned Pro Bowler.

Orakpo and Kerrigan's sack numbers look a lot more reasonable if you consider that they were the ones who earned those additional sacks. But like I said in another thread, someone has to be there to clean up, or the QB gets the pass off.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

kerrigan's strategy is solid. get under the pads, drive them back into their own qb, and get a hand on the ball when possible

I'd like to see us use more traditional 4 man fronts, especially with hybrid defenses being all the rage in the league now a days.

Just every now and then it would be nice to see both Kerrigan and Orakpo lining up as traditional defensive ends with their hands in the dirt and two DT's inside (presumably Carriker and Cofield). I know we run 4 man fronts some times but thats usually with Orakpo and Kerrigan in a two point stance.

Does being obtuse win you an award? They still finished with a better record (7-9) than us, and the players who led their team to a division title a couple years back is still mostly intact. And being in a weak division cuts both ways. It means it's easier to make the playoffs for everyone involved.

I think that's an excellent idea. Send a note to Haslett.

True 30 defenses, like the Steelers and the Redskins are already pretty multiple as it is. Our sub package is a 40 front (as you mentioned) and typically involves both OLBs with their hands in the dird.

I would like to see them get more multiple with that sub package. What they do a lot of is they will overload one side with an SS pressure to force the offense to adjust their protection/go hot with the football. But the fact that we pretty much have to wait for a passing down to use that wrinkle suggests that we're missing opportunities to get our best personnel on the field in earlier downs.

Ever since the first six games Haslett was coordinator, we haven't seen much interior pass rush. Sure, Fletcher or McIntosh will come with delayed A-gap pressure a lot, but we live and die with straight four man rushes and defensive overloads. I feel like if we were more multiple, we could acquire more useful personnel that creates favorable match-ups for our rushers.

That's the opportunity we are missing on defense right now. In our sub packages, we should be attacking the weak links of the opponent's pass protection. Instead, we're trying to isolate the tackles on the edge, and/or get a free rusher. Nothing wrong with that, just missing opportunities to be even better.
