Eeeek.....
If we drafted Mariota this message board would be a freakin zoo at feeding time.

Re: Drafting a guard in the first round.

Rumor has it the Eagles and Jets have a deal in place to send Mariotta to Philly at 6 if he's there. Not only does that give teams incentive to hop up to 5 if they want a QB, it also lets us shaft over Philly... That would make me soooo happy.

Except I am giddy with excitement that Philly might make a trade the farm deal for Mariotta. I watched enough of him this year to come away with the impression that he's a QB I want a rival to sell out for.

Could this be the ultimate 2015 draft scenario for a Skins fan? That would make me chuckle in my sleep. Heh-heh.

Here's a thought: What if Mariota is on the board at #5 and we take him?

One more thought: I saw a recent photo of Jameis Winston with his shirt off. He has gained bad weight and looks soft in the middle. Will teams fear that he'll go "Jamarcus Russell" on them, causing Mariota to be drafted before Winston?
I am not a fan of us spending another top 5 pick on another Qb at this time. Plus Martiota looks like a systems guy, and that system is not the pro system we will be running. That would be a mistake for us to take him. He would be another project that is years away if he played in our pro system.
As everyone knows we have basic fundamental needs, OL, DB, Pass rush needs that need to be addressed BEFORE we take yet another Qb high in the draft.
I have a hunch one of our 3 QB's will pan out well enough to get us winning again if surrounded by a good team. Which means patching those huge holes in our starting lineup. i feel like we will get the biggest bang for our buck by getting a RT, OG, FS and CB. That will go along way (farther) then getting Mariotta and watching him get killed behind a terrible O-line. We have to fix the O-line and DBackfield. That is the #1 priority in my opinion.

Re: Drafting a guard in the first round.

How about when we had a chance to get Alex Mack instead of Orakpo.

Alvin you def get kudos.

Grant on Grant & Danny brought up a good point someone told him .... moving Schreff to RG doesnt look nearly as bad right now bc Morgan Moses has stepped up at RT.

If Moses is not playing well and we are rotating guys at RT and having to max protect on that side etc .... drafting what you initially thought was your RT at No. 5 but then moving Schreff to RG would be viewed as a fail.

I'm gud, cause Moses is playing outstanding at right tackle. Schreff and Moses at the right side has been ten times better than last year. Hail!
