Absolutely.. Maybe not looking at the next 16 games but Morgan and Moss's contract expires at the end of the season, Robinson (to date) hasn't shown himself to be a consistent option. Hankerson is developing but so far inconsistent. Thinking long term, we've got Garcon and nothing. You have to support your QB with weapons.

I have been trying to say this for years. Give your Oline some shotguns and you wont have to worry about your QB getting sacked.

On a serious note. Given this type of draft, I am wondering if it isnt better to go with less needed positions early. There will probably be a run on DB's fairly early. And round 2 through round 4 or 5 rated safeties, at least, arent that dramatically different. Some teams may overlook some positions to get in on the run of DB's. We can still find decent ones in the middle rounds, but may be able to get some good talent that others passed on just because they werent a DB that a team had to get now instead of waiting.

Also with the glut of DB's that will go in this draft, there is a very good chance that come time for training camp cuts, there could be some good veteran DB's getting cut and looking at minimum contracts for one year just to have a job. Im not convinced that if we dont draft DB's in rounds 2, 3, and 4, that it will be complete doom and gloom for our secondary. Not that I want to go this route, but we can probably upgrade the safety position 5 days before the season starts and have much better safety play than we had last year.

Yeah, if we can get Jammer and put him at FS and Meriweather is healthy at SS, that's very encouraging.

We still need more depth. I'm not counting on Tanard Jackson at all. If he gets on the field, bonus...or with Meriweather's health, insurance.

Hankerson NEEDS to step his game up this year. He took a step in the right direction last year, but he had issues with consistency. Has to hold on to the ball more. Aldrick on the other hand there are a few prospects that could be drafted in the third or later who are "better."

I like Boyce and Swope.

Boyce played with RGIII in H.S.

Aldrick needs to step it up too imo. I think its make or break for both, in fact both may not make it through cuts if they dont.

I'm not sure anyone's willing to go that far. Robinson is the fastest player on the team and Hank has been productive but not consistent. Hankerson had 3 fewer catches and 30 fewer yards than Moss (but 5 fewer TD). If we add someone via the draft they will probably replace 2012 preseason man-crush Desmond Briscoe on the 53.

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois

Aldrick could and probably should be a returner this year.

Banks is gone (should be) and Crawford might be seeing time on the field at nickel if we don't draft a CB who can step up, so why risk a thin secondary on punt returns?

Yes he did, could be our new slot WR when Santana hangs it up and wouldn't cause us to move up like I think Justin Hunter would.

I'd replace Woods with Bailey

And Hankerson absolutely needs to step it up

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois

Not Redskins thankfully, but the NFL offseason thread got locked. Rolando McClain strikes AGAIN!



Rolando McClain - Baltimore Ravens - 2013 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com


Ravens ILB Rolando McClain was arrested Sunday evening in Decatur (AL) for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Eyewitnesses say police ordered McClain and several others to leave Pines Park after a large crowd had gathered. McClain refused and began "cursing" at officers, before being handcuffed, and bailing out of jail shortly thereafter. McClain has now been arrested three times in his hometown of Decatur since 2011. He needs to stop going back there for the sake of his livelihood, and perhaps his personal safety. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome smartly guaranteed no portion of McClain's one-year, $700,000 contract. He will be released shortly. Apr 21 - 11:30 PM
Source: WHNT-TV Huntsville

-------------------------

The Ravens are "seeking more facts" on ILB Rolando McClain's latest arrest.
"The only information we have at this time is from media reports," said a team spokesman. That implies they've yet to speak with the mercurial linebacker, who was signed just 12 days ago. There are very few scenarios in which McClain keeps his roster spot. He won't find a third chance easy to come by. Apr 22 - 9:10 AM
Source: Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter


-------------------------


Ravens ILB Rolando McClain disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges reportedly arose after McClain said "(expletive) the police" as he walked by an officer, and "tried to jerk his arms away twice" as he was handcuffed.
We're guessing "(expletive) the police" wasn't what the Ravens had in mind for a comeback credo when they gave McClain a second chance. Hopelessly immature and out of his depth as a professional, McClain is leaving a league that loves redemption stories little choice but to give up on him. Apr 22 - 10:27 AM

Huh? We're gonna draft a WR now? If that's the case, and RT remains an issue this season you have to question the FO structure. And wonder if Vinnie is still in the building.

Insane.

I dont the think the Tackle prospects are as strong as the WR, Safety, and Cornerback positions.

I think they answered the Tackle position in FA.
