I have nothing against Trent Williams. I think he is solid and will be a good player. However he is not worth the no.4 pick. Trent Williams has some work to do to get to the level Okung is at. Okung seems to me ready to step in right away. That is why Okung would be worth it at no.4. No way should we draft a player who is most likely going to play RT at no.4. Lower first round yes, top five no.

I've seen a mock that shows us taking Bulaga at 4 ...

With Donovan McNabb in tow, protection now must become a priority. Bulaga is a very safe pick around whom to build the offensive line if the Redskins do not address the position prior to the draft.

Dont know much about him ...

mind you it shows Tebow at 9 so I'm not sure its a proper mock draft :D

Yea Okung is head and shoulders above everybody in the draft from a pass pro perspective. Davis could get there, maybe even be better, but he isn't yet. Bulaga and Williams are RT's IMO.

Most have Bulaga as a LT - 10 year guy but it's who do you like better - Okung or Bulaga. One thing about Mayock is that he's gone against the grain in the past and more times than none, he's been right as opposed to the "So Called Expert" at ESPN.

I'm hoping that Okung is there IF we have to use that pick BUT I'm not sure that Bulaga or Williams is worth using that pick on - this is going to be interesting
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

When it comes to the draft my only sources are Frank and Brad.. to heck with those "experts".. We have our own experts!

If they say we should get "XYZ".. I'll be pulling for "XYZ"

Yea I don't see how they do have Bulaga as a LT. He can't pass block for crap. He could be an elite RT, as opposed to an average LT. One thing is for sure, if you have issues with protection in college, that is only going to get much, much worse in the NFL.

Yea, he argues because Williams is more mobile, and the whole zone blocking thing. Okung's speed does bother me, but not enough to consider anybody else. He just doesn't get beat.

I say we trade for Gaither from Baltimore, that is if we trade Haynesworth for a 2nd round pick then we can use the 4th pick for another need. Eric Berry is a playmaking safety I know it's not a priority to get a safety but we need a great free safety. Laron Landry is a natural strong safety not a free safety. Just think about it makes sense.

so basically there should be a tackle available at #4, that is worthy of a #4 pick ?

Guys we need more than just okung we need another receiver and safety help. *sh$t* we might even need another corner just carlos hasn't signed his tender yet and says he doesnt want to be in d.c anymore haynesworth for asomugha maybe what you guys think let me know. Oh and don't forget Brandon Marshall either big playmaker. Darren Sharper. Flozdell Adams.
