Saturday Draft Selections

Postby frankcal20 » Sat May 10, 2014 9:06 am

Ok people. Today is round 4-7. Skins have 3 picks at Round 4, Pick 2 (102), Round 5, Pick 2 (142), Round 6, Pick 2 (178), Round 7, Pick 2 (217).

Per NFL.com, here is an analysis so far of the draft picks:

Trent Murphy: "This will be interesting to see how he's used. I liked him better as an outside linebacker. He led the NCAA in sacks (15 in 2013), but he's not an explosive dynamic pass rusher. But he's relentless." -- Charles Davis

Morgan Moses: "He reminds me of Phil Loadholt of Minnesota. The more I watched, the more I liked. He has arms like vines; length matters." -- Mike Mayock

Spencer Long: "I was surprised by his energy and quickness when I watched the tape. He's a solid football player. Washington will plug him right into the lineup." -- Mike Mayock

At this point, it would be wise to get guys who can come in and play special teams and provide depth. If you're lucky enough, you can find a guy who can contribute. I'd be more than fine with not drafting a WR, QB or RB.

Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer 15m

1) Murphy doesn't fill a big need, but coaches feel like they can put him with Orakpo, Kerrigan and Hatcher on the line in nickel right away.

Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer 15m

2) Murphy protects the team's long-term interests at OLB. Orakpo is on a franchise tender. Kerrigan just had his 5th-year option picked up.

Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer 3m

3) Obviously, the Redskins protected another investment here as well -- the on in RG3, taking Moses and Long to beef up their pass pro.

Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer 2m

4) Washington goes into today with the second pick in each of the final 4 rounds. Expect them to address their special teams along the way.

Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer 1m

5) This was Bruce Allen's first draft as boss in DC. What stuck out to people as a mark of his here? Smart, productive, big-school players.

We will probably be in trade down mode to acquire more picks if possible.

It's not just luck. Some teams are better at scouting, put more resources in scouting/evaluation, etc. You don't fine as many late round contributors as the Seahawks have by being "lucky."

There are good players out there now. It's just a matter of when they contribute. Perry Riley was a 4th round pick. Barry Cofield, 4th round. Bowen....undrafted. Ryan Clark undrafted.

You can find guys that can be pieces to a good unit...just depends on how soon.

I'd be happy to add ILB Shayne Skov 6'2 245 from Stanford.

Speed might be a bit of a concern in terms of covering but on tape he looks like a good and willing tackler, should help out on special teams.

I wouldn't mind that at all considering there's a good punter in this draft. If we trade down he will just be an "extra" pick. I'd feel a lot better about that than using out few remaining picks on a punter.

No...or at least not yet. If you're out and about today I'll try to comment for you if I see an update on us trading back.

Maybe he's a slot guy? 4.6 is concerning to me as well, but then there's "game speed."

I'm checking him out on youtube now.

Doesn't sound like there is a lot of good options at punter.. so I'm good with grabbing him asap to ensure we fill that need.. we don't even have a punter on the roster afaik
