Yeah so we go from a focus on smaller (regardless of talent/potentia/ability/red flags) to a focus on bigger (regardless of talent/potential/ability/redflags).

Not a huge fan of this pick, unlike the first two, but he's an OL with obvious upside. And I've been wanting OL, so I ain't complainin'.

Long is a walk on and team captain at Nebraska. All of that speaks to the opposite of the fatboy pick, for me at least. This is the pick I like the most for the day.

he also did 28 BP reps, the only thing that bothers me is no one had rated a 3rd round pick. Did the Redskins think another team was about to take him ?

This is just plain false.

BTW, some of your posts are so extremely negative as to be ridiculous. For example, I don't understand how you could compare one of our draftees to Fat Albert.

Perhaps your current environment is to blame. Get out of Philly before you start booing Santa Claus.

I forget whether it was McShay or Kiper, but one of them said on the ESPN broadcast that he had Long rated #25 overall (First Rounder) until he got hurt.

I suspect that the Skins are following their draft board (which is what Bruce said they would do) without worrying about in-draft strategy. You may have noticed how quickly the Skins made their picks. Maybe the players they drafted were simply at the top of the Skins' draft board at the time they were picked.

Personally I couldn't care less where others have players rated as long as we get players who can help us get better and deeper. This pick reminds me that Russ Grimm was a third round pick. I lived in Pittsburgh at the time of the 1981 draft and I thought that Russ was the best college center I had ever seen when he was at Pitt. Also in 1981, the Skins signed the great Joe Jacoby as an UDFA. So, we'll see what we have in Long when he gets here.

These are the kind of picks that make me nervous. If he stays relatively healthy and gets back to pre injury level, he probably would have been rated BPA. This pick isnt about developing, its whether he can stay healthy. If he can... good pick. If he cant... wasted pick. But given that his right knee has had problems for 2 years in a row (Torn meniscus 2 years ago, Torn MCL last year), hes close to having the injury prone label. Hopefully this guys knee doesnt have chronic problems.

To me, this makes the pick much much worse. Kevin fucking Barnes logic just fucking disgust me.

That's not what it sounds like. Gruden:

“They’re big, but it’s not necessarily big that we’re looking for. Size is important. They have some big defensive linemen nowadays, and we want to protect our quarterback the best way we can. But also we want to be athletic and get out and run the football. We’ve been a very successful zone-running team here with athletic offensive linemen. But there’s going to come a time we’re going to have to throw the ball, and we’ll need some size in there, and these guys will compete.”

Q: Are you surprised by the lack of production by the back-ups on the offensive line?

VC: Are you talking about all the sacks and stuff?

Yeah this was a reach. Guy could have been had in the 4th easily, if not the 5th. His balance is terrible, constantly falling down.

He's a replacement-level interior lineman who will sit on the bench and do nothing on special teams. Not a fan.
