Re: Post draft wrap/grades

I like the draft. Don't love it. B for me.

I do like that we drafted/signed a bunch of team captains and guys that had some real nice athletic testing scores as well.

Really though, if Daniels proves to be a baller, the draft will be an A down the road, even if every other player sucks.

I gave it an "A" for the sole reason that this is the first time, in 25+ years, in which Dan Snyder has not influence a QB decision for this team.

We shouldn't lose sight of just how epic that is

Re: Post draft wrap/grades

If Coleman proves to be even a serviceable Tackle, then my grade goes from a B to an A+

Gave it an A.

We seem to have competent pro-level football talent evaluators (Peters/Quinn). Rivera, Hurney, and Mayhew, were horrible. Missed on too many Day 1-2 picks.

Re: Post draft wrap/grades

Initial impressions are B - hesitant to give an A even though Ruh made one hell of an argument for an A haha.

I would've liked more offensive line attention than just a project guard/tackle, but if the prospects weren't there they weren't there. Team needed help everywhere, we were the 2nd worst team in the NFL last year. So hard to say you don't like the picks when literally every spot on the roster can use improvement.

Looking forward to 3 years from now when we can properly grade Peters' initial draft class.

Re: Post draft wrap/grades

Gave it a B but really think B+.
Bummer we could not get a LT in the 2nd round but grateful we didn't sell the farm to move up to get it.

We needed help almost everywhere so hopefully some of the picks can contribute right away but a few make take a year..

Newton still being available could have easily changed the whole draft for us. He was definitely BPA and they had no idea he would be available at 36. Really, they had to take him. Then that pick shifts everything else around.

Also, First non Dan Snyder coaching staff!

I never give "A's" but they get one this year.

I'm excited to see how the season turns out. I have no expectations simply because I want to actually enjoy the season for once.

Re: Post draft wrap/grades

Sticking to best player available and the JD pick was amazing and really marks a change with the organization

We should be excited

And yet Iím worried about tackle, but I feel with the new folks making decisions we will be ok

How I feel, when even jamf is optimistic:



Sidenote - Upon posting this GIF, we have to change the name again. Redskins was too awesome, and Commanders is too shitty. We have to take another swing at a name that doesn't suck all of the cocks in hell.

Re: Post draft wrap/grades

I gave it a C. Iím a teacher so if you do what the rubric says you get a C. Have to go above and beyond to get a B or A which is tough to do with the second pick. I like the Newton pick in 2nd the more I hear but not really addressing OL keeps it a C for me.

Agree. This draft will come down to Daniels and if he becomes a franchise qb. Love the remaining picks. Newton and Sainistril add attitude to the defense and both are studs. Hoping oline wasn't neglected, although Coleman has talent.

Give the draft a B. Needed another stud olineman for an A. Still happy with the draft.

Re: Post draft wrap/grades

I graded by the draft not the roster needs, hence A. Will it be a A in 3 years, who knows, but right now it looks like one of our best ever drafts.

Q - do you think they didn't get a trade back into the 1st because a) they got no interest or b) they weren't prepared to pay the price? I think it's b) and if I'm right I have more respect for the new staff as a result.
