Chances of getting Chris Long?

Postby DCSports » Wed Nov 07, 2007 8:01 am

What do you guys think are the chances we trade up to the 1st few picks to get DE Chris Long in this years draft?

Zero. The team has too many other needs.

Probably not as much as the glaring need for a big, tall game-changing WR.

First you would have to know where we are drafting and where Long is projected to go, both are going to change too much in the next 2-3 months for anyone make an intelligent guess on either.

We may not need to trade up; we may have to trade down. We may not have any interest in him. And we do have other needs. Like a tall #1 WR, a starting OG, a CB (or 2), and maybe even an OT.

About the only areas we couldn't use a first rounder on are S, TE, and FB. It really would be nice to give Campbell either a stud to throw to or one to block for him. I have been on record as saying you should never ever use a top ten pick on a WR, but hopefully this team is drafting in the 20s or 30s in the first round so a WR wouldn't be too bad down there. However, you can normally find a star OG at that spot.

There are some juniors coming out that are pretty good speed rushers, so if he has a bad combine he might slip a bit. I hope he does because he is a quick, physical pass rusher in the Reggie White/ Michael Strahan mold. and he is good in run support.

Speed rushers aren't usually run support specialists... those are usually opposites. Case in point: Andre Carter.

Like any other team need, this is about philosophy. Does the team want Dave Butz & Darryl Grant, who weren't much for sacks but nobody was running through them, or does the team want Charles Mann & Dexter Manley, a.k.a. "The Sack Attack"? Rarely, if ever, do you get both pass rushing and run stopping ability out of one player.

Chris Long is a projected top ten pick. After seeing his play this year he is outstanding. He can play the run and rush the QB. If his stock drops we may have a chance at getting him.

The Redskins are slotted at number 21.

I agree 100%, Long is a stud. I can't see his stock dropping, he has solid character and is fundamentally sound. Of course sometimes numbers at the Combine really hurt players. We'll just have to see.
