Draft day stories from Vinny Cerrato

Draft day stories from Vinny Cerrato

The Brian Orakpo Pick

(Washington took Orakpo 13th in the 2009 draft, one pick after the Denver Broncos drafted Knowshon Moreno.)


He thought it was funny that the Broncos didn't take advantage of him :shock:


LeSean McCoy
(Washington did not have a second-round pick in 2009, having traded it for Jason Taylor, but apparently the Skins considered moving up.)


The Redskins could have had McCoy but Vinny says it wasn't his vault he isn't with the Redskins :?



Trading Back

(In 2008, the Skins traded out of the first round, and then took the three pass catchers in the second.)

DeSean Jackson

(Also in that draft, DeSean Jackson went 49th, 15 picks after Devin Thomas and one pick after Fred Davis.)



:cry: Just a sad day....


But those days are gone \:D/

I don't know if Desean would have done anything with us anyway with no one to throw to him.

He really does come across as being incredibly dumb. Seems to actually enjoy playing the role of village idiot: "Hey guys, look at me. I'm the dumbest one in here, but if you don't believe me, I'm going to keep talking until you DO believe".

Yeah, but then he leaves the studio, gets in his Bentley, and drives home to his mansion . . .

I can't even bear to open that link. It was fun and games for Cerrato, and nothing but pain for Redskins fans.

Remember when he said that he offered two 1st rounders for a washed up Chad Johnson?

Nobody said that stupid people don't get wealthy. As long as the rest of his "career" is spent in TV or radio studios and not in the Redskins draft room, then I'll settle for that.

The Skins had Moss and didn't want another Moss type receiver. Plus DJ had character issues. It's not Vinny's fault that the bums he drafted didn't want to work or had injuries.

I take that back I hate Vinny and the Skins old drafting process. What a bunch of dumb ***ks

Then Denver’s on the clock the pick before us, and I called them. How about this, I offer them a third-round pick to swap, and they called me back and they said No, you’re gonna get your guy, don’t worry about it, you don’t have to trade. How about that one? [Laughter.]

Wow! Denver must have taken pity on him, being so stupid and all. Why else would they not have jumped at getting another third rounder for nothing?

I'd rather he go to work for Dallas, Philly or NY Giants.

To complete the deal they would have had to stay on the phone with Vinny for another 10 mins.

They came to the conclusion that talking to the guy wasn't worth getting a extra pick to drop one spot. :D

I was cringing when I clicked on this topic, scared of what I was about to read....

Wow. Whoever posted about Cerrato enjoying the role of village idiot, you really nailed it. The guy is just D-U-M dumb. That story about the Orakpo pick makes my bones hurt. Why would you ever admit to that if you didn't have to?

Hey Danny - want to know why our franchise has been an abysmal failure for a decade+? Read this article!

Lol. Excellent return on investment analysis...

Cerrato comes off as so unprofessional whenever he's speaking or interviewed. I can't fathom how he sold himself as a bona fide executive...
