34th Overall Pick

Now that we know where we'll be picking, who do you think the Redskins should take with their first selection? Should we go OL, WR, DB, DL, ILB, best player available at any position, or other? Personally, I see only one route to go: best non-LT OL available. We have a franchise QB, and we need to protect him; our current line does not do that. If a guy like Sammy Watkins, Jason Verett, or Trent Murphy falls to the second round, obviously we should take them. Otherwise, I think the smart route is OL.

Some names to consider, although some of these are projected as late first rounders or second rounders, so there's no telling how many will actually be available...

Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M

Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt

Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford

Zack Martin, OG, Notre Dame

David Yankey, OG, Stanford

Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri

Dion Bailey, S, Southern California

Lamarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State

Anthony Steen, OG, Alabama

Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee

Best value available, especially since the Skins can improve at almost every position

ILB Shayne Skov, can't miss pick, just as good as Kiko Alonso or even better.

ILB is certainly a need, but I think OL is far more important. RG3 can't keep taking huge shots behind a crappy offensive line, and having a true line he could stand behind and scan the field for a reasonable amount of time would go a long way in improving his game. But I think that Skov is a sure thing, and if offensive linemen go heavy in the first round, then selecting Skov would be fine.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

The OL can be fixed with FA, we really need an ILB since fletcher retired. We can also draft an OL in the 3rd.

Also, is it just me or do you guys want to see us start taking our late-round OL from the "Linemen Farms" like Michigan/Iowa/Alabama? I think of LeRibeus and I think of Chad Rinehart from years ago and I really thought those were reaches (even though Rinehart is starting somewhere else I believe). Gettis was from Iowa and people keep saying he had shown a ton of promise.

Not saying all people drafted out of those schools are can't-miss prospects, but I feel like I see more of them working out than not. Not only that, I remember when Alex Mack came out he was considered the best center prospect to come out in years and he was taken like at the end of the first I believe? We should be able to get the second best, if not best, center with our second round pick. TONS of guard options also available which I thought was really our weak point. I say we adress RT in FA and suddenly the line is significantly improved.

I wholeheartedly agree.....but Bruce Allen should only draft him if the Redskins keep the 3-4....I'm almost certain that Riley would be the starting MLB if they go with a 4-3.

I agree. I've seen highlights of this kid.....I don't think the defensive coaches can count on Keenan Robinson remaining healthy. If Robinson wasn't injured this year he would have gotten substituted reps for Fletcher.....Skov would be a great pick at 34th overall for us.

Best available within our needs, which are extensive. No reason we shouldn't be able to grab an impact player at the top of the 2nd rd.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

Also, we keep forgetting about Phillip Thomas at safety. We barely got to see him and he was highly regarded coming out of college.

Richard Crawford also missed the entire season and I had a feeling he was going to be one of our starters as well.

Shameless self-promotion. It is what it is.

True. I also forget he was a pretty nasty PR.

Re: 34th Overall Pick

We need to take the BPA. Or, with the second pick in the second round, make a trade back to pick up picks in the inevitable scramble to the front of round 2.

Not the dreaded trade back! How many times have we screwed that up?

FA first. Then assess the remaining positions of need. Then draft the BPA at a position not addressed in FA. But what do I know?
