Re: cornerback pposition

Harris was brought along very slowly last year coming off his injury which was a very wise move on part of the Skins.

I really think they brought him in last year with an eye on this year knowing losing Smoot was a strong possibility.

I believe he can be a quality starter for us for the next 1-2 seasons, but it will definitely be smart to have someone behind him ready to go.

Re: cornerback pposition

Anyone think we can pick up a halfway decent CB without wasting our #1 pick?

Harris is a solid #2. Frankly, his "unspectacular" game may be better suited to the position than a gambling style with the focus on contact.

Re: cornerback pposition

I completely agree about Harris. I feel that he will fill the void nicely as the departure of Smoot. What I am worried about is what another poster said about what do we do in 1-2 years? I was just wondering if there was a good CB we could take in later rounds to groom for later years.

Or maybe this is just one of those bridges that we cross when we get to it?

Re: cornerback pposition

Walt Will Be Fine This Year But The Ting To Consider Is The Fact That Both Of Our Starting Cb's Will Be 30 Or Over And Then It Drops Off From There.i Really Thingk We Need To Take The Pack Man To Come Up And Play Nickel Learn The Pros Maybe Even Start But You Can't Wait Til You Need A Cb You've Got To Have Them Or You Are Going To Pay Out The Butt For Them Later. To Play The Defense Williams Wants You Need Good Cover Cb's

Re: cornerback pposition

That's a definite. I'm just wondering if we select a CB now and pass on a great WR or take a WR now and select a CB in the later rounds or develop from within.

I could only hope that one day "The Ade" will frequent this site and get that special feeling that a young child gets when a butterfly lands on his head.

Re: cornerback pposition

I'm not sure how the unknown "Williams" fit into that article, but Roosevelt Williams is a CB for the Redskins. He is a former third round draft pick and actually started five games for the Bears I believe. In time, he could prove to be a more than capable dime CB at the least. Also, we have former UDFA Rufus Brown on the roster, and he is another speedster. I don't know if those guys have what it takes, however, so I think we should be thinking CB in the 3rd round, where we could be looking at a number of pretty decent CBs. Darrent Williams (Ok State), Antonio Perkins (Oklahoma), Domonique Foxworth (MD boy), Stanley Wilson (Stanford), Ronald Bartell, Jr. (Howard), and Eric Green (Va Tech) all grade out as 3rd round material, and assuredly several of them will be available at our pick. This draft is extremely deep for CBs; we could definitely find a diamond in the rough of the 3rd round. Most of the great CBs in the league were not first round guys, so hopefully we can continue that trend.

Re: cornerback pposition

gibbs said in his press conference that they'd try walt, wilds and lott at CB, since lott played cb in college and we got 4 SS's that can play fine.

Re: cornerback pposition

I personally think we're going to draft a corner.

Gibbs said the positions that are "up for review" are MLB and CB. Redskins.com reported and Gibbs said it appears our WR corps is set. Third, it appears that Mike Williams and Braylon Edwards will be gone by the time we pick.

It's possible that we could draft Troy Williamson, but I doubt it. Gibbs et al met with Troy Williamson before the combine (something they did with Cooley last season). Troy also has amazing speed and has watched his stock rise from the bottom to the top of the first round (likely top 10 pick).

But, I think with Walt Harris' advanced age, a lack of proven depth at CB, and lots of depth at CB in the draft, I definately think we'll end up drafting either Pac-Man Jones or Rolle.

Re: cornerback pposition

I also think that picking a WR with the #9 pick isn't going to happen. I think that we would be better trading our number 9 pick for a late 1st round and 2nd round pick. Then, we could get a solid DE and CB to add to the mix. I have a feeling that Gibbs thinks he has found the receivers that he needs to get open in his system.

Re: cornerback pposition

Just like I said before, I am completely satisfied with our receivers now. It IS looking a bit unrealistic that we would get Williams, but there are plenty of other playmakers left in the draft at other positions that we can address with our #1.
