I wouldn't be shocked to see them trade down twice in the 1st round b/c I think their target is going to be a QB at the end of the 1st or 2nd round. They could stock pile 2nd and 3rd round picks.

If they don't have an easy, and reasonable path to RGIII (in terms of the cost), this is exactly what they'll try to do.

The Redskins trade the #6 pick this year and next year's # 1 to the Vikings for the 3rd pick and select RGIII. This move is done for fear of Cleveland taking him at #4. It is also done so as not to give up any more picks from this draft. This leaves them with 4 more picks in the next 3 rounds which they use to further bolster the offense.

wow, Blackmon is still there at 6, take him!! We don't trade up for RGIII as we signed Flynn in FA a month earlier-- wouldn't that be great? Get a qb and a stud WR with OL coming later in the draft.

Yeah, just like how with Adrian Peterson opening up the field so much, the Vikings QBs like Tarvaris Jackson, D McNabb, Webb, Ponder, have looked really, really................average.

Disagree. If RGIII is gone and we don't trade up, stay at 6 and take either Blackmon, Claiborne, or one of the offensive linemen. Trading down is nice and all, but we need to add some elite talent to this squad and that is exactly what we can do at 6.

Claiborne, O-line, maybe... I'd be blown away if he used that pick on a WR.

Bill Walsh, who taught Shanny everything he knows said to NEVER draft a WR in the 1st round. Not sure if Shanny's done it in his career or not but I'll go with that. I also think that Blackmans gone, RG3's gone, etc.

Shanahan's history shows he doesn't agree with that. 2002 he drafted Ashley Lelie in the first round. Also,in 1998 the Broncos took wr Marcus Nash in the first.

and how did that work out........those guys are just a blip on the history.

Shanny probably learned that Walsh was right.
