None of the above.

If we had to draft at no.6. I would have to go with Laron Landry.

All these players are excellent prospects. I just do not feel they are worthy of a no. 6 pick.

I would simply have to go with best player available if it came down to us picking at 6.

I could be wrong though. I am hoping Gaines Adams may become the next Demarcus Ware. I hate to say it but Demarcus is a beast and if Gaines can become a player like him then I am all for it.
Sean Taylor starting free safety Heavens team!

We should either
- Trade Down
- Take Laron Landry
- Take Gaines Adams
- Take Amobi Okoye
Any of these happenning would bring a smsile to my face
On the eighth day God created Sean Taylor- and he was good.

Oh, agreed and thanks, right back at ya! :up:

Whether it's in my personal life or in my professional life, I always take the round table approach to everything. I always want to examine every possible angle before reaching a final conclusion. I feel discussions like this does nothing more but broaden my sense of awareness. I may not always agree with it, but at least I know I've covered the bases by listening to all opinions, perspectives, and points of view on the matter.

Because nobody knows everything about everything. Well... except for a few like ATV, RiC and CLL! :P :P :P

:lol: HA! Just kidding of course. :lol:

Anyway, you know what I mean, I also enjoy reading other points of view, because someone will always be able to relate something we failed to recognize ourselves. I always learn something in the process. That's what it's all about. And that's why I enjoy coming here and kickin' it around with you guys.

Ok, enough of that crap, we should still take a hard look at LaRon Landry at #6. The dude is an absolute stud, you know? :D :D :D :D

You know, I was holding to the idea that a safety really can't help our awful run defense, but then I thought about the effect Bob Sanders had on the Colts defense last year.

In the second half, without Bob Sanders, they were the 2006 Washington Redskins in run defense.

With Bob Sanders, though, they really could stop the run. And you saw this especially in the playoffs.

Maybe he can make that needed difference...oh hell.

I still want Okoye :)

Here is another "hypothetical scenario" where we DO manage to trade down...

I was reading a chat on ESPN about the draft with Pro Football Weekly, and they had this to say about us and the #6.

Redskin Fan: What do you think the Skins will do with the #6 pick?
Nolan Nawrocki (PFW): They are trying to trade down. It's an expensive position to be in, however, and finding a buyer is a lot more difficult than it might appear, and I don't see anyone being willing to move up right now. Don't rule out the Broncos.

Now for those of you that don't like wasting your time, skip the rest of this, and for those of you draft geeks that enjoy projecting who we could get with picks that, in reality, we will likely never see anyway, read on...

Here is what it would take for the Broncos to trade up with us (using only draft picks as compensation).

We pick: 6th = 1600 points

They pick:

1st (21st) = 800
2nd (56th) = 340
3rd (70th) = 240
3rd (86th) = 160

That totals 1540 points so far.

They have no 4th rounder this year which would be needed to equal out the last 60 points to reach 1600, so they would have to give 2008's 3rd instead of this years 4th, all this according to NFL trade value chart. (luckily, a pre-determined chart would determine our #6 pick's value, instead of Denver telling our FO what it is worth!)

Anyway, that's equals out to a 1st, 2nd, and three 3rds (one of those next year). I really doubt Denver would do this, especially considering what they have already spent on free agency. But for the sake of argument I believe their needs are DE, DT, LB, WR, and possibly a safety since Lynch should be retiring in a year or so. So maybe they'd want Gaines, Okoye, Patrick Willis, or LaRon Landry. They are as aggressive as we are and will unexpectadly move up for their guy if he's there as illustrated last year by them jumping up to grab Jay Cutler at 11 after not even interviewing him before the draft in an effort to keep others from knowing their intentions.

If by some miracle this occurs, who would you guys try to get with a 1st, 2nd, and two 3rds this year? Would you use them all or package some to move back up from 21 to the mid-teens?

Starters: Griffin and Golston

Back-ups: Salave'a, Montgomery, Jarad Clauss, Lorenzo Alaxander, Vaka Manupuna, and oh by the way, they just re-signed Ryan Boschetti.

That's a total of 8 DT's. Ok, we know Clauss, Alaxander and Manupuna probably won't make it.

So we are down to 5 DT's. If we draft one at #6, now we are at 6 DT's.

There's very little chance a 53-man roster can support 6 DT's. You don't need 4 back-ups for 2 positions. I'm not saying it absolutely can't happen, but I seriously doubt it.

And what ever happened to the notion of developing our own, as I hear around here all the time?

Now, I'm not saying they won't take a DT in this year's draft, but in my opinion, DE and safety are a bigger concern.

No arguments about Golston - here is a guy who has shown promise, already see some playing time, and should be nurtured. We don't know about Montgomery yet, but he should be given every opportunity to stick around. Griffin and Salave'a are the concerns, from the health point of view. Put simply, I don't think that we can rely on either of these guys to give us even 10 games at full fitness. We know what they can do when they're fit, but hoping for uninterrupted seasons from them both is wishful thinking. For that reason, I can justify picking Branch or Okoye, if either one is worthy of the pick at #6. Even with a rookie in the mix, Golston would get plenty of playing time, and Montgomery could be kept on the roster, probably at the expense of Salave'a.

I'm increasingly of the opinion that none of the ends justify a pick that high. So, for me, it does come down to Okoye, Branch, or Landry.

But I still don't see strong safety as the great need. When the Redskins have been strong, the defensive line was where it started. We've won Superbowls without stellar safeties, but we had defensive lines that 1) stuffed the run, and 2) put the QB on his backside.

I still think using another first round pick on the secondary is building things back to front.

And there is some truth to that, so I respect your viewpoint.

Also, don't forget that rotation at the DT position is very prevalent across the league, and is also something prevalent in Williams' philosophy. Teams want fresh legs at that position all the time now.

Today on NFL Live they discussed some interesting points with Floyd Reese, Mel Kiper, Eric Allen and Mark Schlereth (sp?).

The topic was, "draft busts" and how do you spot them.

Since some of my prior posts were lengthy, I'll get right to the point.

2007 potential busts:
Gaines Adams
Alan Branch
Chris Houston

Talked about how Gaines and Branch "take plays off" and don't play with head, heart and soul; extremely important intangibles that can't be measured at the combine.

Floyd Reese, a former GM, spoke directly about things to "look out for" that could make for a bust. He said lack of experience and "starts" were a major consideration by FO's around the league. Players with few starts don't do well at the next level.

As I've mentioned before, Okoye is a bright young kid with a potentially bright future. But he was only a one year starter, therefore, heightened risk involved in drafting him.

Last night on NFL Total Access, they covered the Ravens "state of the franchise". We hear about how the Ravens FO always manages things so well. They went on to say that Ozzie Newsome NEVER drafts for need in the first round. An example was when they drafted TE Todd Heap in the 1st round when they already had Shannon Sharp; it wasn't a position of need that year.

I agree that we need help on the d-line. I'm just really concerned about some of these guys at the top of the first round. We can't afford a bust. That's all I'm thinking.

I've pimped this book multiple times before, but as a football fan you really owe it to yourself to read John Feinstein's Next Man Up, his year behind the scenes with the Ravens, from pre-draft to the end of the season. As a WashPo writer, he can't help but compare how the Ravens do things to how the Redskins do things, and as a Skins fan, it ashames me that we have such a bush league franchise.

I despise the Ravens, but their organization is run so well. It's sickening.

In any case, I really liked the section on their free agency and draft preparations.

Yeah which is why I don't want Branch at all. I like Okoye, because even though he's raw, he's very smart, and a very, very hard worker. You really can't teach work ethic. I can't see how he won't turn out well. I mean, I'm not saying I don't think Branch can't be a great lineman, but the whole "He's a dog" thing I really can't be with.

Gaines Adams is another matter though...it's been so long since we've had a serious passrushing DE (Dexter Manley, really..wow) that taking the chance is worth it. Great defenses have fantastic passrushers...they're just rare as hell to get ahold of. And one passrusher will make everyone else's job that much easier.

Jamaal Anderson supposedly has a pretty good work ethic also. And I like his combination of quickness and size. He could turn out to be a hell of a strong-side DE, playing the run and rushing the passer.

If it was my pick, I'd look at Okoye, Anderson, Landry in that order. But it's not my call. I'll just be happy to get another talented player for our defense.

I like Okoye too. I'm just concerned about his maturity from a physical standpoint. I've read that one of the reasons people like him is because he is only 19 years old.

Well... big props for graduating high school and college early. But from a physical standpoint, it will be years before he is fully matured. He may not be a standout in this league until he is in his mid 20's. Do we want to wait 5 or 6 years for him to develop? It's just a very hard thing to precict with a one year starter who is only 19. Again, in his first 3 years of college, he only had 11 starts and 2.5 sacks. That's not that impressive.

PulpExposure wrote:And one passrusher will make everyone else's job that much easier.


That's not a foregone conclusion and I'm not sure I agree 100% with that. Yeah, a stud pass rusher is great, but there are many teams around the league that have better than average pass rushers and the defense as a whole still sucks.

PulpExposure wrote:Jamaal Anderson supposedly has a pretty good work ethic also.


I wonder why he is falling on draft boards then?

But........ if we were going to go d-line at #6, I'd be happy with Okoye and would hope he could develop quickly.

* Kiper is also high on Louisville defensive tackle Amobi Okoye, another player on the Redskins' radar screen.
"You see a lot of the same qualities in Okoye that you do in Calvin Johnson -- tremendously mature and productive week in and week out," he said. "Athletically and strength-wise, he's what you want."


From the same article:

* He said this year's first round talent isn't as good as last year's star-studded first round.
"There's not much difference between the guy that goes 45 and the guy that goes 25," he said. "There are going to be some guys that go in the first round that aren't necessarily worthy."


On Landry:

* He is high on LSU safety LaRon Landry -- Kiper's mock draft has the Redskins taking Landry.
"He should be a Pro Bowl caliber player," he said. "He'll be better than Roy Williams, no question."

No idea. It's not like he blew his on-campus workout. I have no idea. As for Okoye not being physically grown yet, the guy had a tremendous workout on his campus:

Profile at nfl.com, includes these tidbits:

Campus workout:
Campus: 4.97 in the 40-yard dash … 475-pound bench press … Bench presses 225 pounds 33 times … 605-pound back squat … 352-pound hang clean … 33½-inch arm length … 9-inch hands … Right-handed.


Bench press data is insane...that's strong for an NFL player. If he's not fully developed now, imagine...

Evaluation:

Compares To: Reggie White, ex-Philadelphia/Green Bay … To compare a player to White is something that can not be done without much consideration … But the more you see Okoye on game films, the more convinced you become that he will not only have a long, fruitful career, but will continue to grow both physically and mentally. He has such great fire and plays with the relentless pace that made White the measuring stick for all other defensive linemen … He has the low center of gravity to play over the head of the center, the speed and explosion to shoot the gaps and the quickness to even move out and attack on the edge … Okoye is The NFL Draft Report's top-rated player for the 2007 draft.


That's impressive.

* Kiper is also high on Louisville defensive tackle Amobi Okoye, another player on the Redskins' radar screen.
"You see a lot of the same qualities in Okoye that you do in Calvin Johnson -- tremendously mature and productive week in and week out," he said. "Athletically and strength-wise, he's what you want."

Stop quoting Kiper (and by proxy, Clayton) dammit :) I know he likes Landry for the Skins...

And sheesh I hope he'll be better than Roy Williams. At 6 he'd be drafted higher than Roy (and hopefully, he can cover just a little bit, too!)

Bench press data is insane...that's strong for an NFL player. If he's not fully developed now, imagine...

Evaluation:

Compares To: Reggie White, ex-Philadelphia/Green Bay … To compare a player to White is something that can not be done without much consideration … But the more you see Okoye on game films, the more convinced you become that he will not only have a long, fruitful career, but will continue to grow both physically and mentally. He has such great fire and plays with the relentless pace that made White the measuring stick for all other defensive linemen … He has the low center of gravity to play over the head of the center, the speed and explosion to shoot the gaps and the quickness to even move out and attack on the edge … Okoye is The NFL Draft Report's top-rated player for the 2007 draft.


That's impressive.


Remember, opinions will always vary...

Does not have a lot of starting experience...Timed speed and quickness are good but not great...Still pretty raw and will need some technique work...Will play too high and needs to display more consistent leverage...He will struggle to separate from blocks at times...You could run the risk that he is simply a one-year wonder.

That's the one thing I worry about with both Anderson and Okoye. Both are great players and have potential, but there is something to be said about their lack of experience. It's an elevated risk and that's my only concern.

AND THAT DIDN'T COME FROM KIPER!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
