    2019 NFL Draft discussion thread

    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.

    Welcome to the Redskins Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Shows some respect to Joey T, and says he needs to talk to him before any jersey number handed out.

    Starting QB 2019???

    This team has playoff potential, and I don't think they are going to risk that, by putting Game 1 in the hands of a rookie, regardless of draft position, if he's not totally ready. He's going to compete for the starting spot, off the bat, for sure, but it's not going to be easily handed to him.
  6. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

    That one scout who says "One year big production guys" His Jr year he had 10.5 sacks and more tackles for loss so he's off there I think. Did not know/realize about the Party stuff, usually doesn't bother me too much, let them be kids. Looks like he got it together the last couple years. He should be able to anchor a little better as he gets man strong. Nice talent and potential for the 26th pick in the 1st.
  14. also, my brother (now a titans fan) gave me **** for the redskins drafting Montez sweat due to the heart condition thing. I tried telling him that NFL Network says the heart condition might have been misdiagnosed, but he's saying "oh, cause i'm sure NFL Network is smarter than the doctors....". anyone wanna give me some info that I could share with him to make him look stupid?

    Your forgetting about Rueben Foster too.

    Not a fan thus far... Burns, Rosen, and 2020 2nd >> Haskins and Sweat. And I wouldn't even want Rosen. Sweat will be more of the same of what we had in Preston. Is that worth 2 high picks? I do not think so. I hope I am wrong about both.

    You needed to note his first mistake. Signing on to coach the Redskins. There's an Iraqi style Highway of death when it comes to anyone brought in here to further their careers, player or coach. I think the only guys who escaped relatively intact were the assistants we were too stupid to hire, and Gibbs. He's gotta own this misery. There's a reason we ended up stuck with Zorn in 2008. Jay Gruden should have paid attention to that when he was HC job hunting five years ago.

    Not Robert Griffin‏ @Pseudo_RGIII Haskins, Sweat, and Guice...**** that’s like three 1sts for next season

    The point I think is you are taking jay’s supposed stance of wanting someone else over Haskins at 15 and interpreting it as “Jay doesn’t like Haskins.” Of course if it were up to Jay I’m sure he’d roll with case (may do that anyway) and add an impact player elsewhere. Maybe he also thinks Lock is more pro ready. None of that translates to Jay hates Haskins. Now, maybe he does hate Haskins. But I think it’s more likely given the tweet above, he thinks he’s a talented kid that needs a bit of grooming. So did Mahomes. He’s a straight shooter and called it how it is. I would be pretty surprised if he hated the player, I’m sure he just wanted to add an impact player and go with the vet at QB. Maybe that’s why they traded up for Swear, get two guys they would have liked at 15.

    Why do you keep saying "really digs". I'm saying "doesn't hate". I've never seen a report that Jay hates Haskins. If one exists, it's new to me.
  22. then that's all you needed to say. I knew that sounded strange when I mis-read it on tv, hence why I asked the simple question, did I misread it or not. coulda solved this a lot quicker had you just simply said "yes" or "no"

    For those interested here is what scouts told Bob McGinn about Sweat 3. MONTEZ SWEAT, Mississippi State (6-5 ½, 260, 4.44, 1-2): Doctors have discovered that Sweat has an enlarged heart. He participated in the Senior Bowl and combine. Last year, Michigan DT Maurice Hurst fell to the fifth round with what one source described as a similar condition. “I think it will be a pure judgment call for every medical staff,” the scout said. “We’re meeting on it this week.” His blazing 40 enhanced his draft position. At the same time, his arms measured a position-best 35 ¾ and his arms were 10 ½. “Allen and Sweat are very similar guys,” said another scout. “One-year big production guys. Long and lanky. Look the part. Are they Pro Bowl-caliber players? I don’t think so. They’re going to get drafted where Pro Bowl-caliber players get drafted. I like him, but he’s not Von Miller.” Kicked out of Michigan State in April 2016 after failing at least one drug test and getting involved in some other dustups. “Kind of a party culture there,” said a third scout. “We had some guys from Michigan State talk about him positively during the time he was there. We’re OK with it.” Finished with 105 tackles (30 ½ for loss) and 23 ½ sacks. “That workout stuff, you don’t see on the field,” a fourth scout said. “He’s a gangly athlete. He gets beat up at the point of attack. As a rusher, he’s not a fluid-moving guy. He wins with his length. Just kind of a one-trick pony. He’s scary. He does play hard. But his workout numbers and what you see on the field are two different things.” Scored 14 and 19 on the Wonderlic. From Stone Mountain, Ga. Could be compared to former Titan Jevon Kearse (6-4, 262, 4.45). “Not a bad comparison,” said a fifth scout. “Inside stab. Inside move and he gets his arms under. He’s got such great arm length. I don’t like his person, but with that length and that speed he can develop if he’ll take coaching.”
