im a bit confused reading your post. you start off by making it seem like youre just offering an opinion. however, you definitively stated thay are salivating over Toon. are you just offerering educated options or do you have inside info?

Re: Niles Paul... Tight End?

One thing to keep in mind about Paul he's not 6'1. He's 6'0 3/4.

I don't have inside 411 at all. I'd be surprised if the Redskins took a wide receiver anywhere in the draft because we are good at receiver for now. Unless Kendall Wright is available in the 3rd round, and since Wright and RG3 have chemistry already, then he's the only wide out I see the Redskins taking. Anyways, a lot of what I said about Nick Toon being drafted by the Redskins comes from a few mock drafts that I saw weeks back.

Re: Niles Paul... Tight End?

Sounds like it's just an emergency type of deal.

Re: Niles Paul... Tight End?

Joking aside:
(A) Alexander continues to be one of my favorite guys ... I would buy that jersey.
(B) Shanny does seem a bit concerned about the TE position. Even if its only for emergency purposes, having Alexander prep for the position suggest Shanny can see a point where we may need to reach done to a 5th TE (Davis, Cooley, Paulson, Paul ... Alexander).

Maybe it's solely for goal line blocking for RGIII sneaks.

Re: Niles Paul... Tight End?

I love blue collar/team guys and LA is the epitome Of such but.... This is a scary scenario if TE has something going on we don't know yet (is Fred going to last this year/next, is Cooley expendable?)

Re: Niles Paul... Tight End?

really sounds like they're concerned about TE, but obviously not to the point that they reached on a draft pick for it. Maybe I'm paranoid that Cooley will be cut.

Can't blame Shanny though for worrying about the position given Davis' situation & Cooley's recovery. Also I think this signals that the staff is not happy w/the blocking w/Davis & Cooley. Cooley has improved greatly but is not a great blocker. Davis could improve a lot in that area too.

Chris Cooley has to show he's healthy during minicamps or he's likely gone

Cooley has been one of my favs, but I think the above is fair.

Moss is a different story IMHO. He's the only proven WR on the roster in this system and Mike would be an absolute fool to put his eggs in the Garcon, Hankerson, Morgan basket. Hankerson had one solid game as a pro, coming off serious injury. Garcon and Morgan are brand new to the system. Morgan an injury risk and Garcon historically inconsistent.

...I think Mike has already been a little silly to name these three guys as potential starters while leaving Moss out. Sometimes he looks/acts like young, inexperienced coach.

Re: Niles Paul... Tight End?

Could also be based on the Cap Hit, Cooley's due alot of $$$ this year if we release or he dosen't want to redo his contract and we let him go we might need someone to step in. We have to remember we have a limited amount of spots on this team the more things you can do the better your chances.
