McLaurin makes it what it is. Dude was beating Stephone Gilmore and Darius Slay this year.

Against the best CB in the NFL:

Re: ESPN names Redskins' group of rookies the league's most productive class in 2019

Agree. I think most of us are on the Chase Young at #2 bandwagon, but if anybody is still entertaining the thought of trading down, you realize one of the things we lacked when we had Preston Smith and Kerrigan on the edges was the speed to turn and chase down screens from behind.

Young and Sweat have the size to set the edge and of course can disrupt the QB but they also possess the speed to turn and chase on plays like that. So many times we get gashed on screens, some of which was dumb ass Manusky's scheme. But having the speed to chase is key. Especially the Predator, dude will probably run a 4.5 at 6'5" 265.

Kerrigan ran a 4.67 coming out which was great but he's not quite that fast any longer. He's been a great player for us but we need to plan for a future without him. Preston was a 4.75 or so.

Sweat ran a 4.41 (!).

Obviously you draft your pass rushers to rush the passer and they definitely will but having that athleticism to turn and chase will make a difference. It's something we haven't had and you kind of don't know you're missing it until you see you have it.

Kyle Smith did a damn good job.

Also, sticking to the board and not reaching (outside of the Haskins pick) for need worked well. You never know with injuries who will need to step up...that's why you need to fill your roster in Free Agency with need based choices and have the draft used in a back fill best player available.

Amazing what happens when you get Sweat out of pass coverage and have him rush the QB

4.41 and 4.5 on the edges both at 6'5" and 260lb plus. One called Predator and I am gonna call the other Alien. I am just drooling thinking about it.

With a new scheme I think our front 7 will be very dangerous. Chase will be our Julius Peppers clone.

I put the Redskins failures on defending the screen on our previous coaches. Seemed like our pass rushers weren't being taught how to properly ID a screen, a lot of them worked because our guys would turn upfield and head straight for the qb. Hopefully that won't be an issue with our new coaches.

This defense will just get instantly better with Del Rio / RR and getting rid of Manuskyís overcomplicated and poor defensive schemes. We hardly ever stunted with Greg Manusky and Sweat dropped back into coverage about HALF the time. Wait until heís actually pass rushing most of the plays and the QB canít easily read our defense because of Manuskyís vanilla rushing schemes. Also, we wonít see WR getting wide open because our DB were unsure what they were supposed to be doing that play.

Then add Chase Young and a couple golden FA at CB and S. I see our defense improving into the top 10 next season.

Our offense will take much longer to improve, and Scott
Turner is a little too green for huge upgrades right away. The offense wonít be that good for another season or two.

No question we have some good young talent. Sims was an ufa and was miles better than Gruden's boy.

Re: ESPN names Redskins' group of rookies the league's most productive class in 2019

The ESPN report confirms how well Kyle Smith did last season with this rookie class. I mean we were getting good starters with 6th round picks (Harmon) and even UDFA (Steve Sims)!

If he has another outstanding rookie class, this team will really improve quickly. Young, fast, motivated and CHEAP rookies instead of the failed narrative of over-paid, under-performing and often hurt FA of the Bruce Allen era. I want to see Kyle Smith replace the often hurt FA of 2019 with new, younger and better performing FA at WR #2, TE, S, CB and OT.

If Kyle Smith has another outstanding rookie class in draft , he might get the GM spot. Heís one of the only survivors of the previous regime, along with Doug Williams. Heís key to getting new talent and stars to the roster.

I agree, but RR was not here for those three previous outstanding drafts. So, Kyle will do his magic this offseason with the draft and FA and heíll be awarded with the GM spot.
