    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    We don't seem to draft offensive line year 1 starters well unless they are top ten first rounders. While Gruden and Allen seem to think we have to much cap dollars invested in the oline, if we have to rely on that high end, we need to go for the best olineman available or perhaps trade our 1-1 next year for multiple ones. We also will probably need to find a long term partner for Montez.
  2. Bowe was the 23rd pick, Harmon was the 206th. If Harmon's first four years are just half of what Bowe did over first first four and then Harmon moves on, that pick is highly successful.

    Redskins' what ifs. . .

    How often have you seen the team that was dominant still end on the losing side and sometimes by multiple scores? Last year in the Tampa game, we would have lost almost as badly as we had the previous week if Tampa did not try so hard to lose (missed 3 chip shot FGs and all but one of those TOs was primarily on Tampa). What if the refs had made the right call in the Houston game? What if we had signed Kaepernick and not been why the NFL folded in that case?

    Redskins' what ifs. . .

    Alstott correct ruling? Good chance we'd have been Pittsburgh's SB opponent. Rogers doesn't drop that pick and we go up 10-0. Probably end up winning 24-10 if we don't mess up that gift from Seattle. Pittsburgh probably gets to play Carolina in the SB. 2008: Jordy Nelson over Devin Thomas DeSean Jackson over Fed Davis There are only 3 guys who went in the second after Kelly that were as bad or worse as Malcolm Kelly statistically speaking. So, pretty much anyone. Probably could have signed Kelly as a priority UDFA or thrown out a late round flyer if we just had to have him.

    Redskins' what ifs. . .

    If Green Bay then took JC, we'd all be complaining that we took Rogers. In 2005, there were huge red flags on Rogers and much of his success is probably due to the fact he had several years to fix them. OK, primarily its because I have become so negative... We sign Warren Moon in 1984. OK, pretty fantastical as JoeyT was coming off his best year (excepting for the SB) and Moon would have been a likely backup. The Oilers were about as set to go after him. However, Joe Gibbs was a big supporter of Tampa going after Doug Williams (while a "black" QB was scary) and Moon also looked as physically similar to Gibbs ideal (Dan Fouts) as he was going to get.

    Seemingly good? We beat the Cowboys in 1979. Pardee wins the political battle of 1980 over Beathard. Beathard signs as GM on another team, hires Gibbs as coach and a DB coach from his old team named Pettibon.

    A little insight on Case Keenum.

    My best case scenario. Case shows enough to get another big contract from someone else while Haskins shows enough that Gruden (because of Case shows enough to be desired, Gruden probably stays) decides to start him. Smith is not putting on a brave face and is able to be a quality backup next year (believe it or not, he'd probably be in NET the least expensive backup solution). If we don't go to the playoffs this season, baring another bad luck excuse, we will have a new coach next year.

    Redskins' what ifs. . .

    Joe Gibbs returns in 1999. Assuming our drafting is pretty much the same, I think this team was a good fit for his style. Especially awesome if Trent Green stays, see below Trent Green stays with the Redskins. Could have picked Culpepper and let him ride pine for a couple of years. Jevon Kearse was available with Lang starting to look like something, we'd have been excited, We could have really started building a formidable OL adding Damien Woody though he would have likely been the backup center/guard that year if Gibbs had come back We don't trade up to draft Samuels instead using our natural pick on Samuels instead of Lavar. At 12, Lavar might still have been available while if Chicago goes that way instead of Urlacher, maybe we end up with Urlacher! We also would have had the 24th pick. Maybe instead of Sanders, we take Plummer for a future replacement for DG. The Rattay supporters in NE win and we take Brady instead of Husak. OK, unless we had made all the right moves, I seriously doubt Brady would be the F'in Tom Brady of today, at least not for us. I suspect its F'in Tim Rattay.

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    Given our heavy focus on the oline, especially in the recent past, we need to ask why we are in such a precarious state on the offensive line.
  10. If we are a 7-9 or better team that got unlucky due to injury, Haskins should definitely be in the mix. We should not just sit him but he should not just be handed the job. It is not the bench that would make him ready but the practice days between the games. If we are a bad team that just got lucky, Haskins needs to sit because the new coach will at most want a relatively unmolested QB to mold. Though maybe in that case, the new coach would want tape to find out if he could salvage what he's got (ala Goff) or move on (ala Rosen)

    I wasn't commenting on the probability that Case is good but on the probability that Smith comes back. If Case is good and Haskins is a fail, that is the worst scenario for us.

    2019 NFL Draft discussion thread

    With the Haskins pick, the BEST scenario I can think of is Alex Smith coming back next year, especially if Case plays well enough in 2019 to get a FA contract worthy of a comp pick. Very unlikely scenario though. We pay will pay about 16 million no matter what next year. I'd rather pay 20M to a top-tier backup as opposed to about 16 million for one guy to sit on his couch on Sundays and another top-tier backup about 5M to sit on the bench Sundays. At worse in such a scenario, we get a very early signal that Haskins is probably not the solution.
  13. It seems to increase the probability. Only thing is that both Gruden and Allen have indicated that we have too much cap going to oline.
  14. There goes my 'spricy theory about Allen planning to eliminate all of McLough's work here.
