This.

I've seen Burfict fall into the late rounds in a lot of mock drafts due to character concerns and a poor combine; however, he has fantastic game tape and the Ray Lewis comparisons alone should warrant a late draft pick. If we could pick him up in the fifth and let Fletcher mentor him we could have one of the biggest steals in this draft.

Normally when a kid is mentioned on public sports forums as being a steal, he doesnt slide. Not because you exposed his value, but because other paid scouts have already identified his adjusted(character) value.

Good teams draft great players an keep them. We are finally doing the poor mans version of that by keeping fletch.

I'd like to get to the point where we are more than the team that gives out crazy contracts or is used for leverage against the team a FA really wants to play for.

Hellllll no.


Kid ran over a 5.0 in the 40, AND I watched some of vids of him and he has 0 instincts as a LB. I'll be shocked if this guy gets drafted before round 5. Add this along with his crappy attitude and lack of control. No way, no how do I want this assclown on the Skins squad.

What needs to happen is someone like London Fletcher, Brian Orakpo, or Phillip Daniels needs to sit this kid down. Burfict probably needs an attitude adjustment. His lousy performances at the combine and his pro day surprised me. In the Pac 12 he played well against Andrew Luck, Nick Foles, and Matt Barkley. If the Redskins don't draft him, some other NFL team will. Even if he doesn't get drafted, he will sign on as a FA somewhere. There's nothing wrong with Burfict. Like all children he just needs to grow up and mature.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Burfict could end up being another Randy Moss. He may be someone who a lot of teams will pass on and then end up actually having spectacular seasons and make teams regret that they didn't draft him. I do agree that he is worth a draft choice. Somewhere between the 5th and 7th rounds.

If you waste $100mill trying to replace a guy, it's a pretty big loss.
He wasn't. You're over-valuing what he was worth to us at the time. What we did trying to replace him is irrelevant. No one was pitching a fit when we let him walk. And I maintain, he is a better player for them because of the defense they run and what the ask him to do. He might be a good fit now.

It was the right thing to do. As others have said, he's been here day in day out, year in, year out, sets a great example and does his job. He desreved that raise in the worst way. But to me, it's awful front office work not to have someone behind a 37 year old inside linebacker.

I was surprised at how fast this kid fell. A couple of months ago he was talked about as a 1st round pick. Now, people are saying he may not get drafted.

Mayock torched him saying that he has zero instincts (as NC Skins also said) and that he's basically a run-around-traffic tackler who actually makes big hits. I also read some of his statements about how he was misused, blaming things on his coaches, etc. Apparently, he was horrific in team meetings at the pro-day. Seems to me this kid has more than a little maturity problem - some kids never get it no matter what kind of mentors are around him. This guy strikes me as one of those. From what I have read, calling him "head case" is being kind.

If he's around after the draft and the coaching staff wants to deal with him, fine. Otherwise, we have too many needs to waste a pick on an immature, overhyped ILB.

I won't be too hard on them for this, the transition to the 3-4 required more ILBs, and this team had a lot of whole to fill when Shanny came in. The staff did a decent job IMO of using existing players, Mcintosh, Blades, Fletch and they drafted Riley. They drafted Kerrigan to solidy the edges, so they're in a good position to draft some ILBs this year & next while Fletch is still playing.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

5 year deal but essentially 2 years, 10.7 million, with 5.2 guaranteed per JLC and others

Oh no, we massively overpaid and are screwed for years! It's Haynesworth all over again!

/sarcasm

That is absolutely a fine contract for both sides.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Much less than what Fletcher wanted and even what Redskins were reportedly initially offering.

Now we wait to see what happens with guys like Trent Williams, Chris Cooley, D Hall, Jabar Gaffney and John Beck. Could see some cuts and restructures....no Williams won't be cut before you ask
