Post Draft Thoughts

Favorite pick? Biggest steal? Least favorite pick? Any other thoughts?

Sweat/Harmon/Love

Love was a great player. But thought there were other picks. I really liked this draft, so this pick was really the only one I question.

Can't believe we got Harmon that late.

I hope we can bring in some UDFAs to compete at TE. Still want that surefire blocker.

Overall, I give this draft an A.

Great draft all the way around.

McLaurin and Harmon could re-vamp the WR corps

FANTASTIC DRAFT!! Many steals, really like Martin, Moreland since no one knows much about them, especially Martin. Love the Love pick.

Our PFF grades

Skins had a great draft on paper anyway

Re: Post Draft Thoughts

Outstanding on paper. A solid A. Hopefully a year from now it's still an A. Obviously the owners pick will have a huge impact on the success of this draft.

I'm guessing Apke wasn't Smith's pick last year.

Best draft top to bottom I can remember for sure. Even the Martin pick when you look deeper seems solid. Love the character, production, and speed.

Hope it stays this way.

Re: Post Draft Thoughts

I think Redskins did well in the draft although I still have my reserves. I think I have been burned too many times to a point where I'm going to wait and see..

I wasn't sure of Haskins but the more I watch his films and the more I like him. We really need to keep Oline intact, Haskins play really well when Oline gives him time to throw. The fact that we are likely going to have strong run game, it definitely will allow Haskins to come along well. The best scenario - Haskins becomes starter and helps Gruden save his job. Sweats looks like a great pick, he was widely considered as a top 10 player so giving up two 2nd round picks for a top 10 player is pretty good deal I think.

I think Perine is good as gone, unless we keep Love on PUP until middle of season or put him on IR if he still is not ready to play. This would give Love plenty of time to recover and learn. Perhaps a replacement for Thompson since I think this season is last year of his contract? I really like Wes Martin, granted I saw only 8 mins of his highlights but it's obvious he has pretty strong frame and anchors really well. I'm curious to see how well he pulls.

Kelvin Harmon looks like a gem although I wonder if it's just a clone of Doctson? Can jump and catch ball well but struggle to get separation... Our WR corp is kinda interesting - McLaurin, Harmon, Cam Sims, Qinn, and Richardson. And of course, our beloved Doctson.

Re: Post Draft Thoughts

I did some more reading on our Alabama center, loved that one of my draft guides had him as the #1 center with a 2nd rd grade. Saying basically he's a lock to be a starter, could be a very good one, does everything very well but nothing special.

I'll take happily take that. 2 things that stood out to me were that they said he has gone full seasons without committing a single penalty, and that he was a 4 year starter at Alabama. Pretty impressive stuff, plus being one of 4 team captains for Alabama.

Solid A draft. Can't wait for summer!!! HTTR!

This says it perfectly. There seem to be no knuckleheads in the group, and the picks just make sense as a whole. Some of these players wonít pan out, of course, but the FO did its job. Kyle Smith looks like the real deal.

Now that bothers me. Not even one finger poke in the eye? No biting in pileups? A tripping call? Nothing?! Conrad Dobler would be ashamed of him.

Re: Post Draft Thoughts

What I loved:

1.First 2 picks went towards the most important/impactful positions in the game. 5 year contracts with low cap numbers

2. What made me happier, we threw 2 picks towards 2 area on the team which have been a problem for a couple years, WR and Interior Oline. 4 good prospects...not just nobodies...but 4 solid names. Thatís got me satisfied overall with the draft.

3. Special teams and value not forgotten. Kid from UNC and WR from OSU have special teams impact within their value.

Where we missed.

1. Donít like the Bryce Love pick. Donít like the Injury nor the fact we wasnít having a good year...I think we coulda gotten a better RB prospect. But in the 4th, itís not a major deal and it wasnít as bad as a Apke pick the year before.

2. You canít get everything you need in the draft, but Free Safety and TE there were options but that just means we stuck to our board and didnít reach which should be applauded. While we have some developing depth at TE, Iím not as worried....but at free safety Iím extremely concerned. We should sign someone there with the intention they could get a lot of work or start.

Overall A for me
