Maybe a 2nd, prolly a third and low conditional pick next year.... *shrugs* We also have to see how the draft shakes out. We may be in position to acquire more picks...


There's no reason why you can't build to be competitive now, while still looking ahead.


YES! I like that thought :D
The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

If Okung is off the Board. Absolutely I cant express how big of a fan i am of Bruce Campbell but I know he isn't worth the #4 pick in the draft. Drop down. but as we all know if Haynesworth or Campbell are traded we're going to get some picks back. I've also read there are about 4 more skins very quietly on the block. So it my not be completely neccesary. Only time will tell.

If we trade Haynesworth to Detroit, part of the deal s/be we swap 4 for 2 in the first round so we know we get Okung, if that's who the skins brass is targeting. If Allen wants Trent Wms, they don't need to move up to 2.

Detroit would be wise to get Haynesworth from us for a 2nd round pick (I'd like a 2nd or 3rd next year too) and draft Suh in the first and build one of the best DT tandems around. Their Dline would be set for 4 years, minimum.

Suh and Haynesworth would be scary...50% of the time.

The spin has started for the selecting of Tebow, Shanahan has said he would use him on special teams to justify his value as a high pick.

I say we draft Eric Berry the best safety available and trade haynesworth for a 2nd possibly a 1st and trade for the Lt of the baltimore ravens Jared Gaither. What you think? Remember Landry is no Sean Taylor. 'R.I.P homie we miss you' Redskin forever.

"Remember Landry is no Sean Taylor."

Landry is not a good cover safety, but our Defense can recover from that. He truly is nothing like ST, but he will do for now. Without a Left tackle in the draft our team would be in shambles... much like last years team.

what does Landry have to do with the #4 pick?

we are taking Okung IF we cannot trade out of that spot

the offensive line is going to be rebuilt over the next two years and IMO the plan is to have a decent line ASAP but certainly by 2012 when all the other pieces will be in place as well - it's going to take a while to remake this franchise but the right guys are in charge now
The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

Sadly, Taylor is no longer with this franchise and can no longer be of any help to our secondary - Landry has incredible talent and needs to start being the player he can be

Hopefully the new guys in charge here will be able to help Landry be the safety that many of us expected

Hopefully Landry will become the defensive leader he's capable of being

that being said we are hopefully taking Okung if we cannot trade out of that 4 pick because as much as I would like to see Berry here we do not need another great safety, we already have one in Landry, we need O line help
