  • NFL Draft – Redskins Day Two


    Preston Smith was the name Washington called with the 38th overall pick. The Defensive End from Mississippi State was one of this year’s NFL Combine super-risers. He showed great athletecism, and that’s likely what was so attractive to the Redskins.

    Smith isn’t the prototypical edge rusher. He will beat guys with power, not speed. He’s also versatile enough to drop off into coverage and fill multiple roles along the evolving Defensive front. He will play linebacker in the base 3-4, but will also see time as a stand up defensive end: Read the rest of this entry »

    McCloughan Plucks Picks From Seahawks


    The Redskins have traded their 3rd Round draft pick to the Seattle Seahawks. In return for the 69th overall pick, Washington will get the 95th, 112th, 167th and 181st picks.

    In my best Foghorn Leghorn voice…

    “I say, I say, well that’s a helluva deal Mr. McCloughan.”

    Four picks for one? Granted dropping all the way to 95 from 69 in round two stings a bit, but what a haul the Redskins new General Manager just grabbed from Seattle.

    With the 69 pick, the Seahawks chose wide receiver Tyler Lockett. Geebus, I guess they really liked the guy.

    With a sudden cache of picks, the Redskins may not be done either, they now have the resources to move up throughout the draft.

    Hail to the Redskins.

    Redskins Select Scherff With Fifth Overall Pick


    With the fifth overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins selected offensive lineman Brandon Scherff.

    He may move inside and play guard at the next level, but it’s probable that the Redskins just landed a piece of their offensive line for the next 5 to 10 years. Given the climate along the line for the last 5-10 years, they have to start immediately.

    The 6’5″, 320 pound leader from Iowa, is a great start. Alfred Morris might want to buddy up early, because this guy will pave roads for the running back, and likely as soon as 2015. Read the rest of this entry »

    Draftnik Must-Haves


    Some watch the draft… some are consumed by it.

    If you are the latter, here is my list of ten things/tools you will need to reach draft nirvana this evening…

    1) Alcohol. You don’t have to drink to excess, though you may if you are so inclined. It’s perfectly okay to add a little bit of an air of “party” to your draft by enjoying a few wobbly pops. Drink responsibly of course. Read the rest of this entry »

    Throwback Thursday: 2000 NFL Draft


    In honor of today’s NFL Draft, it seemed fitting to make this week’s Throwback Thursday pay homage. It’s hard to believe it was 15 years ago that this photo was taken.

    While they were Redskins during some pretty lean years, both Lavar Arrington and Chris Samuels represented the burgundy and gold with pride for years to follow that 2000 Draft. Great players, great draft day.

    No more sleeps… it’s nearly time.

    Hail to the Redskins.

    2015 NFL Draft: One More Sleep


    While there is no doubt that the NFL offseason has shrunk to near nothingness, there is no more exciting event in that offseason, than draft weekend. For weeks, the pundits have been pouring over charts, and draft profiles, and team needs, and trade scenarios – all for the glory of trying to predict the unpredictable.

    It’s enough hype to drive a thriving football industry for months on end, during the “down time”. After all, who doesn’t love their NFL Football 24/7/365?

    The Redskins will be making the number five selection. Or will they? Depends who you ask. The reality is that here is no way to tell with any certainty what ANY team will do after the number one pick. Variable upon variable to be poured over meticulously. And still often all for naught. Of late, the only thing you can predict is that it will be full of surprises no matter how hard the experts try to prevent that from happening. Read the rest of this entry »
