Oh no your right, but even with a rookie safety coming in, you still need to get better CBs. I think if you had Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor back there, you'd still see that Wilson and Hall aren't that great.

Did not know this. Wilson def isn't worth that figure if that's what you're saying, but IMO we're short on DB talent and can't afford to part with him.

There's things a really like about our corners. They're tough, both Wilson and Hall will punish the ball carrier, take out bigger guys and even create some fumbles. And they're good out corner blitzes and getting to the QB. I give them some leeway because both are undersized vs most #1 WRs. Springs was our last corner who could cover basically anyone (long as Springs was healthy), and we need a guy like that again.

But FS is still the biggest need defensively and where we'll get the biggest bang for the buck. If Jammer is a prospect at FS (per Smoot) I'm excited.

Quentin Jammer, DB for the San Diego Chargers at NFL.com

If we sign him, you have to think either he or Hall is headed to FS, and I give Jammer the nod just because he's got the size/reach advantage.

DeAngelo Hall, DB for the Washington Redskins at NFL.com

Hall would be a serious ball hawk at FS but get trucked from time to time and probably gamble too much.

We're supposedly also interested in Jammers teammate Corey Lynch; a FS/SS ST who filled in great last year for San Diego when their starting SS went out. He by the way, can catch unlike some of our other DBs, and he'll be very cheap. He would be insurance should we not get a safety we think can start.

SS, who are we higher on, Rambo or Swearinger?

If we sign/draft two safeties does that mean Ratard Jackson and B Merriwether are donzo? I figured one of those two guys would pan out and be starting week one...

I think the Redskins are going to draft either Phillip Thomas or D.J. Swearinger. That said, it would be a good idea to keep Meriweather and Jackson for depth with possibly Meriweather starting at SS. We can't be mad at Jackson anymore. He's served his suspension and hopefully he can contribute once he's officially reinstated by Goddell.

Probably Swearinger between those two

What's that Mark Twain saying? "If you don't like the weather in New England, wait five minutes."

Same concept for DJ and Thomas.

I happen to think it'll be between Wilcox (my pick) or Duke in round 4.

Merriweather isn't going anywhere, they just re did his deal. TJax sure he can go

SS what are you hearing on the buzz that we may go WR in the 2nd round? Draft week smokescreen or legit buzz. While S & CB are bigger needs, I don't see anyone on our WR group outside of Garcon who's not replaceable in 2014 with a draft pick. Even if it's not in the 2nd, I'd like to see us come away from rounds 2-5 with at least one WR and one speed RB.

TJax cannot even be in the building until the very end of August, making him unlikely as a week one starter.

So you're thinking offensive playmaker in Round 2 (perhaps Justin Hunter), either DJ Swearinger or Phillip Thomas in Round 3, and either JJ Wilcox or Duke Williams in Round 4. Is that right?

100% legit. Personally I think we're going to trade our 2nd round pick and have two 3rds. One will be a WR/possibly RB and the other will be a CB. I don't think we're taking a safety before round 4. And I think one our 5th round picks will be another offensive playmaker.
