Yeah I posted in the news wire, it's all good though...The Winslow reminds him of Howard talk could be a smoke screen though. We'll find out in 3 days and counting

I think the biggest hint that they plan to pick Taylor is the lack of action in signing Iffy. They don't want to sign him to starter money if he's going to be Taylor's backup.

The Redskins may not get to pick Winslow. KMBR is reporting that the Radiers are looking in to K. Warner as a QB for next year. This would give them a opening to take a OT or a TE!!! Davis has a eye on both but would love Winslow. Also some drafts have see Taylor not being there as well but that is not as likely!

I would say it is more likely that Sean Taylor would be picked before our #5, rather than Winslow.

Or a WR. Rice is still very good, but not a long term solution. Brown should have retired a year ago. Porter has durability questions. In two years, all three could be gone (or non-factors).

I wouldnt be suprised to see Oakland grab Roy Williams. I heard Al Davis Likes him alot. If Gallery is there, I could see them grabbing him as well. Of course Manning is a possiblity too. The Chargers are going to have a big impact on what Oakland does.

Ok, crazy trade scenario time.. If Winslow and Taylor are available, how about offering Betts, Trotter, next years #1 and #3 to Detroit and drafting both of them! Of course it won't happen, but if some fools are throwing out trading Ramsey, Samuels and the #5 to SD for the #1 and Drew Brees I figured this wasn't any worse.

The Raiders could look to trade down too and swap spots with the Giants or maybe the Browns.

my bet between the two would be the browns who are infatuated with gallery and thus the raiders could probably milk more picks out of them and still get roy williams at #7.

dont be surprised if the Raiders draft Gallery, they might want him for themselves. Al Davis is in love with Roy Williams though, probably enough in love that he wont want to trade down and risk not having him. Gallery could then easily fall to four, the Cards want Larry over anyone. At which point the Giants have to decide if they want a franchise QB. If Gallery falls to five them everything goes out the window. The Skins better trade with the Browns if Gallery is at 5, then we just pick whoever the Lions dont. And mabye get a second in the process.

throw um both in, and the supplemental draft choice to if ya want. Actually for Winslow and Taylor...The focus would shift to WInslow and Coles, leaving mismatches on Jacobs, THrash or McCants.

But they cut Chamberlin and traded B. Johnson. Iffy and Bowen sarted last year (yeah, I know, they were pretty weak. But still...), but who do we have at H-back? Sellars? He's going to be the lynchpin in Gibbs' offense? I doubt it.

Obviously Gibbs is worried about a hold out, so that may swing it. (Man, F*** the postons! They are screwing with us left and right!!!) But I think KW II would be a real nice fit for us.

I think he would too, if he didn't have an attitude problem. I see KWII Messing up stuff in the locker room, thereby messing up the team's karma. I rather have Taylor.

this was part of the latest story from the online washington post:

"If the Redskins don't trade up from the fifth pick and Manning, Gallery, Fitzgerald and Roethlisberger or Williams are off the board, they probably would be left choosing between a trade-down or picking Taylor or his former Hurricanes teammate, Kellen Winslow Jr. The team's bigger needs appear to be on defense at this point. But Winslow is a special talent. And the agent, while saying he wasn't certain which player the Redskins would take if faced with a choice between Taylor and Winslow, said the negative publicity focused recently on Winslow's tough-negotiating representatives, brothers Carl and Kevin Poston, would negate the need to pass up Winslow because of any concerns that he might be difficult to sign.

"It's a no-risk pick,'' the agent said. "Those guys have got to make that a smooth negotiation. They're under the gun.'' "

think this could be true?
