2004 draft..Sean Taylor

Postby Guest » Tue Jan 20, 2004 10:27 pm

In my humble opinion it Sean Taylor (Safety/Maimi)
is there we have to snag him. We are in desperate need of a hard-hitting enforcer in the defensive backfield.

Most experts predict Taylor to be the best safety in the league somewhere in his 2nd - 3rd year.

I look forward to drafting him, too. I've read that he could be the next Ronnie Lott. I don't believe it but if he comes close, I'll be happy.

Ronnie Lott was a good hitter...

... Taylor can cover too!

He's a lot like Roy Williams of the Pukes.

I would like Taylor too... but only if we have already addressed the d-line with at LEAST one player come draft day.
Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

We can take Taylor with the 1st pick and P/U Randy Starks with either our 2nd or 3rd pick depending on how far he falls on the draft board. I think in a perfect world the order goes like this:

1. Sean Taylor
2. Ben Troupe
3. Randy Starks

Etc... After thinking about this for awhile I feel we can make do with our current RB's and should not use any of our limited cap room for this. Any thoughts?

Can you imagine Champ, Smoot and Taylor all roaming the secondary? And Matt Bowen will be back there too! Scary...

I also think we can get by with the RBs we have now. At least until we get a better feel for what they can do in a normal system. And you all know that Spurrier's system was not the best judge for RB talent.

Worse yet for other teams is that secondary with the main job of pass coverage, not run support...

I still say trade down, get Starks (who many draft scouts say is going to be the #1 DT after the combine) with say the 10th pick, picking up a couple more picks, trade Bailey for a first rounder, get one of the top 3-4 backs like Greg Jones or Steve Jackson then Troupe with the #5 pick in the second round if he is still there

Hey great site!
I'm hoping for Taylor. As much as I hate the cowboys, Roy Williams is unreal. If Taylor can make that kind of impact he's the guy. Then in FA and the second round we get that d-line fearsome. Boo Williams for tight end, too. RB? In Gibbs I trust.

I heard that Starks was at best an early second round pick. That's why Ralph told him he should stay for his senior year. #10 pick sounds a little high for someone who has gotten really no press coverage. This guy is not on too many peoples radar. But you are right...if he kicks ass at the combine that all can change.

Trust me - if he lives up to what I have read about him in the strength, speed and accel department, along with the fact that he is supposed to be a guy who works all year round to improve he will show up at the combine.

There are a lot of experts who have him going anywhere from pick 12-29.

I don't see us grabbing Taylor when the safety spot isn't horrible with the Skins, just not good. The line, though, sucked. If I had walked towards that defensive line with no blockers in front of me I MIGHT have gotten tackled this past year. It was rather dreadful.

Did you see the PFW mock draft yesterday on ESPN? They predicted the 'skins would take KELLEN WINSLOW JR at TE. Basically because we need a tight end and because Snyder loves the big name players.

Not who I would have guessed, but its an interesting idea. I think that first pick is going to say alot about the Gibbs/Snyder era Redskins. We'll see...

First of all I hope Matt Bowen moves to Dallas this offseason. He was terrible. He got beat every time they threw over the middle and can't tackle. He's the most overrated player on this team and I hate him. bring back sam shade. Hell Ohalete is better.

Secondly I hope champ goes somewhere else too

Third and finally the runningbacks we have will do to have a winning season in order to get somewhere that matters like the playoffs or the big game we are gonna need a fresh big name back like Greg JOnes or Kevin Jones.

I'm so glad your one of the only people i've heard say that Matt Bowen is some garbage. Boy, does he suck or what? I wouldn't mind if he played second string safety for us, but theres no way I want him to be the starter.
