Trade a next year's pick for a pick one round lower this year is always gonna seem like overpaying, but EVERY team does it!
I think this is a good pick. He sounds perfect for Gibbs' offense.

If Cooley turns out to be another Didier type as some have said, I think he's well worth a 2nd rounder. Let's give it some time to see how it works out.

Chris Cooley seems to be a solid pickup. Pick-wise, I think this move is typical for this trade in the NFL. The Redskins got a mid third rounder and, in exchange, switched picks with New Orleans in the 5th round (which moved them down a total of 11 spots) and gave up a 2nd rounder next year. In the 5th round, most teams seem to make more unpredictable choices and I believe that the Redskins probably gave up little in terms of what choices (in terms of players) they would have in that round. In addition, the Redskins are trying to win now so they figure that their 2nd round pick next year should be a low-round selection. Also, we get to use Cooley now, as opposed to the entire year that the Saints must wait to use their second-round pick. By picking up Cooley, I feel that they have added a player who has proven himself in the H-back role (finalist for the Mackey award, which is given to the nation's top tight end) and although he may never be a Jeremy Shockey, a Tony Gonzalez, or a Kellen Winslow, I believe that he possesses the hands, the strength, and the diversity of skills (good special teams player) that will allow him to succeed in the NFL.

he seems like a good fit for joe gibbs system. I think that was a good pick, over any dlinemen we would have picked up at that point. Gibbs got a TE to fit his system, a lot of the TEs we have now wont make the team or are just special teamers. We dont need to draft a dlinemen who is average. We've got a ton of average dlinemen. We upgraded two spots, and Wynn is solid, didnt give up to much, and Noble might be back. Our Dline is going to be better that people think. Gibbs made a comment about not wanting a dlinemen that wasnt a passrushing threat. He said we alreayd have run stoppers and dont need anylinemen unless he was a great pass rusher.
