    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    The NFC East is tough. It’s not like dropping back behind Ohio State’s perennial excellent O-line and throwing to 4.4 wide-outs running away from the other school’s 4.55 dbs. It’s a different animal. Was kerry collins at Penn State when they were a member of the big ten? I thought they were still independent at that time.

For Immediate Release April 25, 2018 REDSKINS DRAFT QB DWAYNE HASKINS AND LB MONTEZ SWEAT IN THE FIRST ROUND LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins selected quarterback Dwayne Haskins (No. 15 overall) and linebacker Montez Sweat (No. 26 overall) in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

On his thoughts on the New York Giants passing on him at No. 6: "What did I think? I didn't think anything. I talked to my family that I knew (Daniel Jones) was going to get picked. I’m just looking forward to being able to compete against those guys for the rest of my career." On if he knew the Redskins would take him after Miami passed on him: "Yes sir." On his expectations for next season: "Expectations are to work as hard as I can, do all I can and be a part of this position (group) and this franchise. I'm looking forward to contributing in any way possible and just get down and work. I'm just excited to be a part of something special and be a part of a team again. I am looking forward to calling the Redskins my home. Things will come and I'm just going to do everything I can to be ready." On what he feels his strengths are and what he feels like he needs to improve on: “I’m just going to work on getting my head in the playbook, doing all I can to get physically and mentally ready for the upcoming season and just motivate my guys that are coming in with me in this rookie class and do all I can to be prepared for this season. Everything will be a new challenge for me and everything will be something that I will take head on and I’m just looking forward to getting to D.C. and being able to be a part of this team, so I’m really excited.” On what he thinks about just having one year of college experience: “I had one year in college and I feel like I showed all I could as far as one year – I broke a lot of records, did a lot of great things and I feel like I did a lot of stuff that shows that I can translate to the NFL. Just being able to do what I did at a high level, I thought it was the right choice for me to make that change to go to the pros and I’m grateful that the Redskins thought so as well and selected me.” On attending home games at FedEx Field in high school: "I went to a couple of games with my friends back in high school back with RGIII. I haven’t been able to since I went to school. But football is taken very seriously down here and I am looking forward to bringing that winning tradition back to the Redskins." On attending high school with Dan Snyder’s son and if he has ever met Dan Snyder: "I never met Dan Snyder before or I was able to meet him during the Draft process. It is cool that his son went to my high school and that I know his son. It is crazy how small this world is and how you can meet somebody and it can change your life. That is why I make sure I treat people the way I want to be treated and I do all I can do to make sure that I leave a lasting impression on people. I think that Mr. Snyder thought that I was the guy for the franchise. I am just hopeful and I am excited for the future." On if his meetings with the Redskins were very X’s and O’s oriented: “It was great. We talked a lot of ball and that’s something I love to talk about and you know he never hesitated to ask me all I could, to pick my brain and I feel like Coach [Jay] Gruden is a great coach and is going to do a great job developing me. I feel like we have a great relationship with one another and you know it’s going to be a lot of fun working with him over the years.” On if the Redskins coaching staff mentioned things to improve on his game during his meetings with them: “No, I mean there were no conversations like that, I got to be better at everything. Once you think that you arrive is the second you begin to fall so there wasn’t anything where it was specific about something I need to improve. Everyone knows I’m a young guy and that I have a lot of work to do and you know I’m here and I’m ready to work so I’m going to do the best that I can to push myself and the guys around me. You know it’s going to be a lot of fun getting ready for this season and the seasons to come.” LB Montez Sweat On his emotions after being selected by Redskins: "My emotions were going everywhere. It was low-key a series of some doubts like, 'Why am I dropping so far? 'What's going on?' I was just wondering what's going on and then the Redskins called me and they changed my whole persona, everything, the way I was feeling. Now they definitely have a winner in me." On what it means to him that a team traded up in the first round to draft him: "It means a lot. It means that they trust in me. It means that they believe in me. I want to give the same respect back to them and just give my all. That's all that means to me." On who he spoke with from the team: "I talked to everybody from the team, from the linebacker's coach all the way to the owner. They were fired up to have me. I was just talking to them, talking to everybody." On reports regarding the misdiagnosis of his heart condition: "I was going through a lot of top 30 visits and when I was first coming into the draft process, they misdiagnosed me with a heart condition. Actually, on my last visit a doctor diagnosed it back to a normal heart, basically. I'm just ready to play football." On the last team he visited: "It was with the Houston Texans. The doctor's name was Dr. [James] Muntz who diagnosed me with the correct measurements." On sharing a coach with LB Ryan Kerrigan and if he has ever met him: "I'm not very familiar with the Redskins coaching staff, but I'm going to get real familiar with them – Ryan Kerrigan, that's the pass rusher, the defensive end. It's going to be a blessing playing on the other side of him, most definitely." On his relationship with former Redskins land Mississippi State linebacker Preston Smith: "I've got a great relationship with Preston Smith. We actually went to the same high school, from the same college. I actually saw him on one of my top 30 visits back in Green Bay and he just told me to keep my head up, keep grinding, and just keep on going." On his motivation from being passed up by so many teams: "I'm more motivated than ever. I've always played with a chip on my shoulder and I guess it's safe to say, it’s probably the biggest chip on my shoulder that it's ever been." On his overall game and what he needs to work on: "I feel like I need to work on all aspects of my game. What you're going to see from me is just a relentless football player that's going to keep on working to better his craft."

    @wolfsire Look the kid had arguably the Best Season EVER in the Big Ten, he started one year, he's a worker, high football IQ, 50 TD's, Accurate. Some NFL QB's from the Big Ten: Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Len Dawson, Bob Griese, Kerry Collins, Jim Everett, Jeff George.. I think its a gamble worth taking. Forget Snyder.
  9. With our IR OL he'll probably get hurt before week 8...

    2019 NFL Draft discussion thread

    Thread over at Cowboyszone... Redskins are a hot mess (and yes, it was started yesterday before the draft, after reading Russini's "reports', among others) Some posts before the draft: "synder taking control of the draft room is awesome. " "It's nice having "The New Cleveland Browns" in our division." "Haskins will be a bust. Jones wont be much better. Drew Locke is better than any other QB in this draft. Leave it to the skins to mess up yet another premium draft pick. Thats why we love them." "Redskins are a hot mess, water is wet and the sun sets in the west." And some from after the 1st round: "Redskins did in fact own the first rd. Damn that defensive line is going to be tough. " "Agreed. Their defense will be top 10 for sure " "Sigh...yep, probably. Their secondary is solid but behind THAT line it sure doesn't have to be spectacular. IF they build the O the next two to three years like they have this D.....look out." "Yeah that hot mess switched in a hurry. Forgot Reuben Foster didn’t get suspended either. Yikes." "They’re well on their way just with Haskins and Guice returning. " "On paper if this defense gives up more than 215 points this year all coaches should be terminated "

    Next year’s draft will contain better qbs. I just think this was another fancy in the snyde’s head. He likes his fancy. He doesn’t want good, strong football management around him. He wants “yes” men. He wants to meddle. I’d love to hear some of the conversations between Scott and the weenies before he was fired.

    Am i making the case that Jay hates Haskins? I don't recall using that word but if I did and then I misspoke. What i said or meant to say is multiple reporters have said that Jay did not want Haskins. The reports when elaborated depending on the source was either Jay preferred other QBs, Jay didn't want to take Haskins and the harshest was Sheehan saying he heard Jay didn't like Haskins as a player. You can take that anyway you like. There is enough smoke there for me to have doubts that Haskins is his guy. But you can take it anyway you like with whatever interpretation of what that means that hits you. To each their own on that front. Having said that, Jay is a good natured, positive dude that i am sure will try to make the best out of it. And hopefully it works out. Even if my interpretation is correct, i am intrigued to see what Jay can do with this guy. Again not sure where I am making the case that Jay "hates" Haskins but if I used that word somewhere than I misspoke. QBs IMO are crap shoots. As you know, I if anything obsess on getting one. I don't think you can win the big dance without a franchise QB. I ultimately have gotten behind every young QB they've had here. I'll do it for Haskins too soon enough. I got some doubts about the dude -- love the Mahomes reference you use albeit they are totally different QBs stylistically. But I get your point. I enjoy the romance of a young QB as much as anyone so i am not trying to spoil the party. I've made my case enough about Jay. If people want to soak it up, ESPN's college station has been running old games from all the QB prospects this week including Haskins. And tune into Path to the Draft tomorrow, Bucky Brooks worships Haskins. Ditto NFL Live tomorrow because Reddick worships him, too. A love fest is coming tomorrow. I think it's going to feel a lot like the Spring of 2012 for awhile, lots of optimism.

    @wolfsire Skins can be totally wrong on Haskins, we'll see. I think his floor is Jameis Winston (with better accuracy and less turnovers) and his ceiling is a bit smaller Ben Roethlisberger/Drew Bledsoe . Securing a QB you think is worth it is always a big deal. That possibility imo is > than Bradbury who I think is gonna be great.

    Starting QB 2019???

    This team has playoff potential, and I don't think they are going to put that at risk, by putting Game 1 in the hands of a rookie, regardless of draft position, if he's not totally ready. He's still got to prove himself at an NFL level. Of course he's going to compete for the starting spot off the bat, for sure, but it's not going to be easily or hastily handed to him. I'm inclined to think by mid-season he earns it, unless something extraordinarily positive or negative happens.
  17. Soooo last year there was all that funny business with Guice and we steal him in the bottom of the 2nd round and this year the funny business with Sweat and we steal jim in the bottom of the 1st. Bwhahahaha Redskins are doing something right.

    I just can’t see a boom or bust pick at 15. We needed a center and Bradbury won the rimington trophy. Fastest O-lineman at the combine and steam-rolled guys at the senior bowl practices. Guaranteed quality for 10 years or more without injury circumstance. That’s why Minnesota took him at 16 to direct the O-line in front of Cousins.

    Welcome to the Redskins Montez Sweat Mississippi St.

    On paper, what a nasty defense, even including the assistant coaches...and we're not even done putting the pieces in. If this defense can gel, stay healthy, and get some decent playcalling, it will dominate.

    2019 ES GMs Mock Draft - Final!

    Huh. So I had two 1st round picks, including one as high as 12th overall... and neither of them have been drafted thus far. Guess I'm not winning any awards this year... again. Well. I guess my second round pick did get taken in the first. So I've got that going for me, which is nice. I had Darnell Savage targeted for the Packers, but I was unable to trade back in the second round where I thought I'd find good value for him. Turns out the real Packers traded up to take him in the first.

    Robert Parsons‏ @PuppetAnalingus Replying to @RedskinsRant I’ve said this multiple times tonight: Danny Boy needs to take over more drafts.
  22. Sweat recently met with Houston Texans team doctor Dr. James Muntz and was told he had been misdiagnosed with a heart condition in February while at the scouting combine, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday, via sources with direct knowledge of the situation. Tests taken at the combine revealed Sweat might have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which results in thickening of the heart walls, as doctors in Indianapolis measured nearly two centimeters of thickness, according to Rapoport. Sweat has since met with several experts, who concluded that doctors at the combine accidentally included capillary muscle in their testing and that Sweat's actual measurement is about 1.5 centimeters, Rapoport added.
  23. Please tune out of every draft. Thank you. Last years draft was solid even if people still mad we didnt draft James. And this years draft might be our best ever.
