Would Skins Have Taken Jones?

Washington has said repeatedly that Haskins was their guy, but who truly believes this? Who thinks Washington would have taken Jones at 15 if he was there?

Not me. Haskins was the name they were most connected with in the process. Haskins is the better prospect than Jones.

I think Haskins was their guy all along, would they have considered Jones if he was there at 15 and Haskins wasn’t? Probably.

Who thinks we would be speaking German right now if we had lost WWII?

I'm not into revisionist history because it is meaningless.

Had the NYG taken Haskins I'm not so sure that Jones would have been the pick for Washington...I think they would have taken Sweat at #15 and Jones would have fallen...there's a strong possibility that Jones would have fallen to the Redskins at the #46 pick in this scenario.

Re: Would Skins Have Taken Jones?

I read an article that said the Midgets took Jones early because the Skins would of taken him at #15. I find that funny I think the Midgets are trying to save face. Jones might turn out to be a good even great QB but I'd like to believe we wouldn't be interested in him until at least the 3rd round IMO.

Re: Would Skins Have Taken Jones?

Gettlemen would be better off just owning the pick and saying yeah he was our guy all the way and he was worth the #6 pick to us. Stop with the BS of blaming other teams.

Re: Would Skins Have Taken Jones?

And you should pick because of what you want your team to achieve, not based on fear of what someone else will do. You think Bellichick picks players based on what he thinks the Bills, Jets or Dolphins will do? Yeah, me neither. What nonsense. I hope that's how Gettleman is making picks -- the Gnats will be doomed for a while.

I didn't even realize that was Gettlemen's reasoning behind the draft pick? Picking out of fear another team was going to make that pick. Whatev's.... I think we got the QB with the higher ceiling.

everyone agrees Haskins' ceiling is higher. But his floor is also lower. He's boom or bust. Daniel Jones has a lower ceiling, but his floor is still high-end backup / low-end starter.
