    I'm hitting the dark rum, but my only advice is to go with quantity over quality.

    Make sure all the Daniel Jones haters do this next season! Jones is the best QB in this draft! Bank on it!

    Finlay https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/15-final-thoughts-what-could-be-wildest-nfl-draft-quite-some-time Kyler Murray will go first overall to Arizona. The Redskins will not trade up into the Top 3. The Redskins will not trade up into the Top 5. Drew Lock will be the next QB off the board. There could be a Laremy Tunsil type of situation. Either Miami or Cincinnati will take a quarterback. Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom goes in the top half of the draft. Montez Sweat could slide in this draft, and it might not just be about medicals. The injury issue will impact Rashan Gary. The Redskins will take a defensive player with the 15th pick. Nobody knows what the Giants will do, and they like that. Four QBs will get drafted in the first round. Five QBs might get taken in the first round. The Redskins will not take a wide receiver in the first round. Don't close the door on Josh Rosen landing in the NFC East.

    Definitely think Dillard is going top 10.

    I see Lock is falling in a lot of mock drafts. Could he be there at 15?

    I don’t think you know what an agenda is, but the use of capitalization is powerful. Josh Dobbs style.

    The switch to Thursday night still bugs me. I used to love Sat/Sun weekend in college. Food delivery, beer, a TV and a computer. The rest of the world was useless (well, except the delivery guy). Miss those days.

    yeah if its Daniel Jones it would ruin my night. I don't love Haskins at that pick either. They are playing right now on the ESPN college station Missouri versus Kentucky. That wasn't one of Lock's better games. And I am not 100% sold that he's the goods. But I can ride with him. To my eyes that dude is so much more fluid than Haskins as a QB. I do have a predisposition for QBs who can move well in the pocket and can make off balance throws like Lock. Maybe I'll go on to youtube and try to find the clip later but there was one where Lock was chased in the backfield he escaped to his right, back peddled on the move while being chased and threw a dime off of his back foot for a completion. If that was Haskins, IMO he would have been sacked. We can talk about Haskins stats but imagine him playing for Missouri against SEC opponents with that supporting cast or playing for Duke surrounded by garbage. No way I buy he'd have monster stats. Scouts say that it's the biggest crap shoot guessing on QBs and its easy to get it wrong. So I am not swearing by any of my takes. My take on Haskins watching him, and I watched 5 games in a row about a week ago (I didn't post clips on him like i have on the others) that his lack of lateral mobility in the pocket coupled with his lack of speed is crazy obvious. Like i said then, I have taken some digs at Rosen (but am cool with him for a 2nd rounder) but comparing those two in the pocket is night and day. Rosen isn't fast but he can really move in the pocket. He has quick feet. Haskins on occasion can but otherwise he's a stationary target. Then you add me hearing from some draft geeks that they heard from scouts that they have concerns about whether Haskins can keep himself in shape and was out of shape at the combine and cramped up there. Those are some red flags for me. It didn't matter to me that he capitalized on his 4-5 seconds (hyperbole on my end to make a point) to throw the ball. I just don't think he's going to have that luxury in the NFL. I don't know if the Bledsoe types can thrive in today's NFL. Will see. He has a strong arm and makes some beauty throws. But I got serious doubts about a QB with slow feet, slow speed and is also questionable under pressure. I know some draft media geeks adore him and apparently so does Dan Snyder but I am not swayed by that. Will see. As for Daniel Jones. My issues with him are almost the opposite of Haskins. I like Jones' mobility and movement in the pocket. He's a tough son of a gun and doesn't flinch under pressure. Unlike Haskins, he was working with garbage against better stacked teams. But the dude doesn't make tough throws. He doesn't have much arm strength. His accuracy stinks outside of 10 yards. And his personality is IMO epically weird for a QB. If I recall right Peter King said recently he's the most boring QB he's ever met or something like that. A scout said he has Eli's personality without the pizzaz. He's beyond boring to me he comes off weird to me.

    I am no good at mock drafts, it's a crazy amount of variables you have to consider, but here is my attempt to do one for the top ten: 1 - Cardinals - Kyler Murray 2 - trade - Raiders - Josh Allen 3 - trade - Redskins - Dwayne Haskins 4 - trade - 49ers - Nick Bosa 5 - Buccaneers - Byron Murphy 6 - trade - Bills - Quinnen Williams 7 - Jaguars - Ed Oliver 8 - Lions - Devin White 9 - trade - Giants - Andre Dillard 10 - Broncos - Drew Lock

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The fact that Snyder's son went to same school as Haskins in DC area that concerns me. I would go for a quarterback in the second round and go for another urgent need with the 15th pick. We have so many holes that need to be filled that its not funny. Its not good that the Danny could be involved in pushing for a move up higher in the first round.

    Starting QB 2019???

    And would they be dumb enough to want to get an overpaid QB that their own coaches brother is trying to get rid of? I guess they might just reset the Doofus bar.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I think he was referring to David Cutcliffe who coached the Manning boys in college and Jones at Duke. He also coached Heath Shuler who was a bigger bust then Hackenberg based off where they were drafted.

    My biggest issue is the guy gets knocked as having no athleticism. And that simply isnt true. He can run. He just isnt great at it. And his ability to move around the pocket is very good. He is also very accurate on the run. Especially to his right. Now does he need some work? Yep. His footwork gets sloppy at times and he does struggle with pressure up the middle sometimes as well. But those are both correctable at the next level. He has a beautiful arm and his brain and work habits are top notch as well.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Pretty sure I think this is already known. I seem to remember articles about Russian mobsters washing money by purchasing places in Trump Tower. That same Russian mob that bailed Trump out when his casinos went belly up and the same Russian mob that got busted in 2013 by the FBI wiretap AT Trump Towers. Edit..then there is this article regarding Trump's ties to our bobsters (the article is by a Pulitzer prize winner too). https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/05/donald-trump-2016-mob-organized-crime-213910

    Dan is so trading up to reach on a QB that has his favorite music on his tubes

    Finlay doesn't make sense unless Murray is your guy. By adding another QB in the pool, your QB likelihood increases, and thus a lesser need to move up from #15. But I guess it is due diligence to make some offers during draft night and see if the value is there at #5 or so. I hope we stay pat, though.

    Christian Hackenberg was 'coached' by the Mannings as well... and quite possibly one of the largest draft busts in history. Wouldn't touch Jones before the 5th round.

    Oh ok, thanks. I might join you in making some Haskins gifs of his pretty plays, but I don't know if I'll have the time before the draft. Probably do it if we end up picking him and start up a separate thread on him. The Northwestern game is a good one to use, he basically just tapdanced on them.

    @clskinsfan watch out brother he is going to respond to you in GIFs <gasp>. He may also remind us that he “knows” more than we do because he is important? . If I had more time and energy I’d show I do have social skills @volsmet but I’d rather do other wonderful things today.
  26. I’d like to see Trotz do well. I hate Tortarella so Columbus is out of the question. As is Boston cause **** them. Can’t root for the Canes cause they beat us. I like Colorado. And talk about a team that got lucky, they get the 2nd pick (I think) in the draft. Sharks are ok too also I think, for a bunch of goons.
