Smootsmack,
do you have any information regarding the current consensus is regarding Compton within the Redskins organization?

Many here have been hopeful since he was drafted last year that he could develop into our starting RT....but we have heard very little and seen few signs that indicate the team has any confidence in this possibility.

They like Compton. Mentioned last fall they upped his salary to keep others teams who wanted to put him on their active roster from taking him. He's very much in their plans

The only reason Compton was brought up from the practice squad to be on the roster late last year was because other teams were looking to sign him and we didnt want to lose him. Given that other NFL teams wanted him and we made moves to prevent him from leaving. Seems that is some kind of a sign that we, as well as other teams, have at least a little confidence in him.

Compton is a late round draft pick and a developmental player. He didn't see any game time in his rookie campaign because the coach Forester felt he wasn't ready. But he must have been developing greatly if the Redskins didn't draft a RT in April. Compton might be closer to starting sooner than you think.

or we had other needs, didn't have money, and we brought in 3 other RTs already. so i'm not sure that's the biggest vote of confidence.

look, i'd love for him to be great, but every year people get caught up on weird depth players as this year's pro bowler, and most of the time it doesn't happen.

we've been doing this same thing with the RT position since jansen started sucking. the names change but the position hasn't been very good. hopefully he is the next best thing, but the way people talk they just seem to assume any 7th rounder we sign is destine to be amazing. I just prefer to wait and see.

This is pretty amazing. A record setting with three broken fingers - he definitely deserve the props and contact he just signed.

Re: NFL News Offseason Style

I saw that today , I would rather have the draft in March . Maybe have some OTA's in April and would give fans more football news earlier .

I think that would be GREAT TV. They could show that in June/July, Top 100 in April, Draft in May, that gives an NFL fan lots of time to get their NFL dosage in the offseason.
no one would agree to that, it gives up too much information on a team's process etc.

They'd have to edit so much of it out that it wouldn't even be worth watching. C'mon man....

Re: NFL News Offseason Style

they'd also NEVER give editing control over their show to people they just met. especially since those people don't care about the show's ratings.

i just don't see any way it could work out for both sides and still be compelling.

Re: NFL News Offseason Style

I dunno, I think there are more similarities than you might think between something like that, and Hard Knocks. TV producers are pretty good at creating shows out of nothing, so even if they don't have a whole lot to go on, they (esp. HBO) can make a pretty cool show even with their hands tied. Plus I think there's a lot of stuff that's compelling, but doesn't necessarily give away anything. For this year, they could follow the guys who dropped out of the first round (Geno Smith esp) - just get their reactions, interview them, get some GM reactions, etc. I bet a lot of teams would be fine with opening up a lot of their interviews - maybe there are two or three questions that they'd rather keep private, but I bet there are a bunch of generic questions that they'd have no problem disclosing.

I dunno, I like the idea. How do we get HBO on this...
