Re: Rank the Skins 1st Round Picks Since 2000

I wonder what could have been with RG3 if he and the Redskins did things differently. Meddling Snyder making him his favorite son, Shanny letting him play when injured, and Robert's own reckless play contributed to a quick down fall.

Re: Rank the Skins 1st Round Picks Since 2000

This is fun. My heart wants to put Sean Taylor #1 but we unfortunately only got to see four years of him so it's pretty hard to put him ahead of Trent and Kerrigan. Also Samuels is way too low on this list. Dude made six pro bowls in his ten seasons from the LT spot, one of the most important positions on the field.

1) Trent Williams
2) Chris Samuels
3) Ryan Kerrigan
4) Sean Taylor
5) Brandon Scherff
6) Brian Orakpo
7) Jonathan Allen (leadership counts for something to me)
8) Robert Griffin III
9) Carlos Rogers
10) Lavar Arrington
11) Jason Campbell
12) LaRon Landry
13) Patrick Ramsey
14) Rod Gardner
15) Josh Doctson

Not going to rank Payne, Sweat or Haskins yet. Too soon.

Re: Rank the Skins 1st Round Picks Since 2000

I agree with SunnySide about Chris Samuels. He was TW before we had TW, and he played his heart out till the end. TW was better (more athletic) but the layers of issues from early suspensions til now have to count against his final placement.

Here is my list:
OL Chris Samuels
OL Trent Williams
LB Ryan Kerrigan
S Sean Taylor
OL Brandon Scherff
DL Jonathan Allen - I agree with Schneed about leadership. Plus I think his game will skyrocket under Del Rio
DB Carlos Rogers I know he dropped int's, but his coverage skills were top notch
LB Brian Orakpo I mostly remember him not living up to expectations
LB Lavar Arrington mostly due to Snyder's early interference but more hype than action
QB RG3 oh well ought to drop further because of how many 1st's we gave up for him, but the rest of the list is just bad
QB Patrick Ramsey
QB Jason Campbell
CB Laron Landry
WR Rod Gardner
WR Josh Doctson

Re: Rank the Skins 1st Round Picks Since 2000

Taylor was the best player on that list. He's #1.
The worst was Docston. He is now on the Jets and probably won't be playing football come Sept.

Re: Rank the Skins 1st Round Picks Since 2000

Trent Williams
Sean Taylor
Chris Samuels
Lavar Arrington
Brandon Scherff

These guys are the only ones that could play at an elite level consistently.
Lavars hit on Aikmen is enough to put him on this list.

Orakpo and Kerrigan have the stats and probowls but never showed up in big games.


Now our 2nd rounders...

Re: Rank the Skins 1st Round Picks Since 2000

The amount of total draft-busts in this list is just depressing. But you have to remember Bruce Allen and Vinny Cerrato we’re making the draft choices. The real poll is to vote on who was worse: Allen or Cerrato? Both were terrible GMs who couldn’t even get real starters even with first round draft choices!

Like many others, I also think it is too soon for Haskins, Sweat, and Payne.

Good point. How much different would the Redskins have been if Mike Shanahan would've had the deal that Rivera has now, and Snyder didn't "mingle" with his favorite players.
