I don't expect we'll take CJ either. We've had bad luck with WR in the first round (Gardner, Howard, Westbrook) but if ever there was a time to take a chance, this is it.

What we really need is another 1981 draft:

1. Mark May, T, Pittsburgh
3. Russ Grimm, G, Pittsburgh
4. Tom Flick, QB, Washington
5. Dexter Manley, DE, Oklahoma St.
6. Larry Kubin, LB, Penn St.
8. Charlie Brown, WR, South Carolina St.
9. Darryl Grant, G, Rice
10. Phil Kessel, QB, Northern Michigan
10. Allan Kennedy, T, Washington St.
11. Jerry Hill, WR, Northern Alabama
12. Clint Didier, WR, Portland St.

Probably the best Redskins single seasn draft of all time.

Gregg Williams should give Us The Redskins his blessing to trade up and take possibly the greatest recieving prospect since Jerry Rice. His words should be "Joe I'll give you a top 15 defense with the horses I have"

Saying we won't have to make that decision because he won't fall to 6 is a moot point because I think it's a consensus that we would have to trade up to #2 assuming the Raiders go qb which isn't a given by a long shot. People who are not adamant about us getting CJ don't get it...this guy is something special...he's not peter warrick he's art monk only faster.

It would be more accurate to say he's TO or Randy Moss, but with Art Monk's attitude... I have no doubt he is that good, but, that still misses the point.

No player, and especially not a player who will touch the ball no more than 10 times a game, is worth what it would cost to get him.

The skin's should either:
a. Trade down for picks, or
b. Take the best availible player at 6 (most likely LaRon Landry). I won't be hurt if they take Okoye or one of a handful of other D linemen.

I have no problem with trying to get the 1st or 2nd pick - I would be very surprised if Gibbs gave up any picks for next year's draft to do that though - the only reason to trade up is to try and get Johnson and I really do not think we can make a better offer than Tampa will - PLUS - we are not going to be that good a team with Calvin Johnson this year that it makes any sense at all to give up the picks we are still going to need next year.

This team needs to start thinking about getting better this year and next - we can be a playoff team this year but we will not be with the world's best, all time, WR and a defense that cannot stop anyone.
