    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I think I can live with anything but Daniel Jones with pick 15. Trade the world and go after Murray, sit tight and draft Haskins or Lock, draft anybody else at 15, trade back and get some additional picks. If the Redskins draft Jones at 15, or heaven forbid jump up to get him, I am turning in my Redskin fan card. I can't take anymore.

  4. This Louisiana town is moving to higher ground as taxpayers foot the bill for growing climate crisis NEW ROADS, La. — At a small church meeting house this month in a Louisiana farm town, a tiny community was making a very big decision. Residents were fed up with increasingly intense and frequent flooding, so they are moving to higher ground. Together. The residents of Pecan Acres are some of America’s first climate refugees. The plan to move them could become a blueprint for other towns, as increasingly extreme weather and rising sea levels force more and more residents from the homes they’ve known for decades. Pecan Acres, a subdivision of New Roads, Louisiana, was built in the 1970s along a canal. While it was always prone to flooding, in the last decade the floods have gotten much worse and much more destructive. The area levee is no longer adequate to hold the heavier rainfall. Back-to-back floods in 2016 and 2017 drew the governor’s attention, and a plan was hatched to buy out about 40 homeowners and move them to a new plot of land, barely 2 miles away, but 10 feet higher. The option to purchase the land was signed in early April. The state is using federal funds, specifically community development block grants designated for disaster relief, to build new homes, demolish the flood-damaged ones, and turn the old neighborhood into wetlands. Doing so will protect neighboring communities from future floods, because the restored wetlands will act as a sponge. Click on the link for the full article

    Yep and at the time Anderson became an obvious selection in the second. Heck maybe if Allen hadn't fallen to us, we'd have traded back and taken Anderson slightly earlier. Anyway, Savage looks like he could be 'that' target this year. Trade back for an extra second rounder at least, OL, pick Savage, WR, then QB in their somewhere. Maybe QB, Savage, WR/OL as we drift into the third. Few nice options, including Rosen, assuming we don't shoot our wad and trade up from #15

    Yeah, rushing Colt back at the end of last season was not a smart move, even without delaying the recovery (I had not read that article until now). I don't think this recent procedure is due to rushing him back, though, especially since the article says he could be back next week.

  8. Winston Shrout, One of America's Most High-Profile 'Sovereign Citizens,' is a Fugitive Winston Shrout spent years defying the federal government as one of the country’s most high-profile sovereign citizens and tax dodgers. His latest act has made him a fugitive for the last six weeks. Shrout, a sovereign citizen who doesn’t recognize the authority of the U.S. government, didn’t show up on March 4 when he was due to report to a federal prison in Sheridan, Ore. A federal judge issued a warrant for the 70-year-old anti-government activist’s arrest. As of April 22, Shrout, with a Hillsboro, Ore., address, had not been arrested and the Bureau of Prisons, on its website, listed him as not in custody. Shrout faces 10 years in prison after being convicted of issuing fake financial documents to banks and the U.S Treasury. He also didn’t file tax returns from 2009 to 2014. Shrout’s lawyers, through motions, delayed his prison report date at least three times before the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ordered him in to begin serving prison time.

    His accuracy is pretty damn phenomenal if I must say so, he even has accuracy on the deep ball which is telling. I think scouts are outthinking themselves when it comes to him. I could live with trading up a couple of spots to get him, but going into the top 5 is going to cost a fortune and we don't really have the talent to afford giving up those picks. Well, when have we ever done that on a consistent basis?

    Oh I would freak if we convinced Bill to trade for #15. That would be an incredible haul.

    I think we trade down. With the amount of our needs, it makes sense. Trade up, and we lose valuable picks we need for numerous other needs we have. And what good is a Haskins, if the team around him is weak. Trade down, we get extra picks to address those needs. Plus, there's a good chance we can still get a quality starter in Round 2. Round 1 QB's bust often, and of course, at a higher price. Round 2 is the safe way to go this year.

    Haskins's Rose Bowl film is damned good too. So many advanced traits on display. Top tier arm talent--can back foot lasers and put them on the money, can rip throw the seams against cover 3 and cover 2 shell with easy touch and velocity. Ability to make accurate pre-snap reads and see the whole field. Ability to look off primary reads to uncover them. Beautiful pocket footwork, including the ability to climb the ladder and reset. Ability to break the pocket and go off script for chunky positive plays. Great pocket presence and field vision, plays with no fear and anticipates openings without having to see them, like when he's corralling a bad snap and can This kid is a RS sophomore with only a few career starts and he's already a significantly better passer than anyone else in this class except Murray. He is a bigger talent than Rosen too. His weaknesses are normal for a young blue chip QB prospect, and they are absolutely things that he can work on to improve--developing touch on throws into the flats, developing touch on the deep ball, learning to read zone blitzes, learning when to throw it away. He is so advanced for his age and class, that he's going to be able to make a **** ton of plays and competently guide a good offense early in his career. I am 100% confident that the draftnik world is suffering from some really bad groupthink on Haskins and that they are missing on him like they missed on Watson. He is a no-brainer top 5 talent and I'm as confident in my evaluation of his strengths and weaknesses as I was with Watson and Baker Mayfield. He would transform our passing game. Instead of having this fearful, seat of the pants quarterbacking that can't do anything against bad leverage situations we would have a workhorse passer who is efficient, accurate, and legitimately powerful. Someone who puts confidence in our huddles and sidelines and leads our franchise with ability. We could be one of the NFL's blue blood teams instead of the plucky try-hards who need everything to go right just to run a half-way competent offense.

    https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/colt-mccoy-not-redskins-otas-he-recovers-another-leg-procedure-source I mean, it's all in here essentially. People come up with different conclusions after they've connected the dots, but what I get from this is that he was rushed back and it was the reason why he had this recent procedure. It's bush league to do that in hopes of fighting for a playoff spot at 6-7.

    Would be happy to get Savage for sure. Maybe we trade down and get the best OG avail then (Who knows what will happen but) after seemingly 17 visits with Grier (and his stock rising), maybe we trade back into the bottom of first and grab him. Get NE richer with more picks for their 32nd.

    could be. The Redskins went apparently to Savage to meet with him this week. Last time I recall the Redskins going to meet the player at their venue as opposed to their own during the last week was Ryan Anderson. For those interested here's McGinn's scouts take on him: 6. DARNELL SAVAGE, Maryland (5-10 ½, 197, 4.35, 2-3): Three-year starter. “I think he’s really good,” said one scout. “He (compensates for size) with speed and explosion. Earl Thomas was short, too. He’s a hitter.” Also covered in the slot. “He can play nick at the next level,” a second scout said. “Just not very big. He’s smart. He plays physical for his size but he’s not real strong. Gets run through. He still needs polish in the deep part of the field.” Finished with 182 tackles (nine for loss), eight picks and 13 PBUs. “I don’t see Lamarcus Joyner,” said a third scout. “Joyner was too tough for his own good. He just flew around. He was a whole different breed than this guy … people are going to say he can play slot, which he did there, but he’s not a good enough athlete to play slot. He’s a good little athlete but he’s going to have trouble because he’s so small. He’s not very good in run support. I’m not sure what to do with him.” From Newark, Del. I know some here love Bryon Murphy so as their take on him: 1. BYRON MURPHY, Washington (5-10 ½, 189, 4.52, 1): Third-year sophomore bypassed two seasons of eligibility. “He’s Janoris Jenkins,” said one scout. “He’s got elite burst, twitch, explosiveness. I know he doesn’t have it from a speed standpoint. The guys he’ll be matched up against, he’ll be fine because he knows how to play and protect his cushion and get in and out of (breaks). He’s built for the game the way it’s played now with quarterbacks having to get the ball out of their hand fast. He can man mirror. He can play off. Reminds me of Cortland Finnegan. He was a 4.5 guy but the way he played you couldn’t tell because he stuck on guys.” Gained 14 pounds from his playing weight during the season to the combine. “Needs to get tougher,” said a second scout. “Real good athlete. He’s better than Kevin King (former Washington teammate). He’s not as explosive as (Jaire) Alexander.” After red-shirting in 2016, he missed half of the ’17 season because of a broken foot. “He’s super talented but his deal is he just hasn’t played that much,” a third scout said. Finished with 74 tackles (seven for loss), six interceptions and 20 passes broken up (PBUs). Scored 12 on the Wonderlic intelligence test. “Father’s been in prison and brother is in prison for armed robbery,” said a fourth scout. “Moved around a lot when he was young. You talk about a tough life.” From Scottsdale, Ariz.

    Will Russell Westbrook ever win anything? I'm not convinced he is an all-time great player despite his amazing stats. He couldn't even win with Kevin Durant, even if they got close.
