Today the Redskins signed Tom Compton, a sixth-round offensive tackle from South Dakota, and Alfred Morris, a sixth-round running back from Florida Atlantic. Washington had already signed seventh-round draft picks Richard Crawford and Jordan Bernstine and fifth-round pick Adam Gettis.

Four of the Redskins’ nine draft picks remain unsigned: First-round pick Robert Griffin III, second-round pick Josh LeRibeus and fourth-round picks Kirk Cousins and Keenan Robinson.

Is the rookie scale for guard and center different? Kinda wondering why we haven't tied down Cousins aswell. 2nd string vs third?

It's still May... this time two years ago only 13 draft picks out of all 7 rounds were signed. Right now over half of this year's entire rookie class is signed. The rest of the guys will sign soon.

:lol: details :lol:

nobody with a chance to help this franchise will miss the opportunity to be a part of what is happening here
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

HAIL


Currently 50-41

Kirk Ferentz on Adam Gettis:
(Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz spent six years as an offensive line coach in the NFL. He's also had 13 linemen drafted in the past 10 years)

He played as well as anyone on our offensive line and that includes Riley [Reiff, a first-round pick]. Riley has a different physique and a different stature, but Adam played at a real high level. No one asked about him in August, and by November everyone was asking about him. People paid attention.


The bottom line is he’s quick and explosive. We had some guys in our league this year who were drafted pretty high who were big and he blocked those guys. It’s on the tape. It’s not a projection. The other thing about Adam is that he gets on blocks quicker.

News from Monday's OTA:

Rookie cornerbackRichard Crawford was with Garçon step for step on a deep pass by Griffin and knocked it down. That drew some shouts of encouragement from the defensive starters on the other end of the field.


This is an encouraging start from Crawford who might be a sleeper in this year's draft.

John Keim interview with Alfred Morris' Running Back Coach:

Q: Why is he good in pass protection?

A: He was a guy that took a lot of pride in that. We were very rare these days as far as college football because we were running a pro-style offense. Howard was our head coach and was doing everything he’d done his whole career as far as the complexity of the pass game. When you have that, you have a lot of different protections. He’s not only good from a physical standpoint, but he’s also very pro ready because we had to teach quite a few different protections while he was here for us. Whenever you have that second back it gives you more freedom in the variety of schemes you can run. That takes some intelligence to catch on. You have to have a good football IQ. Not only is he a tough kid, but he has a football IQ and he can understand it, and he’s willing to embrace that role. That’s a big transition for running backs, but it won’t be as big for him. He brings a workmanlike O-line mentality when he’s called upon to block.

Q: What else does he do well in this area?

A: He’s a guy that will not wait on a [rusher]. You want those guys in attack mode and a lot of kids because they’re playing offense they think you’re not aggressive. That’s the thing he does very well, he meets them and is aggressive with them. He mostly played defense as a high school player.

Washington Redskins fourth-round quarterback Kirk Cousins announced on Twitter that he had signed his rookie contract.

The Redskins quickly confirmed the signing and Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com and the NFL Network reported, according to sources, the standard four-year deal is worth $2.57 million, which is consistent with Cousins' draft slot (seventh pick in the fourth round). The slot also calls for a signing bonus of $472,688.
