    And then you recall that Belichek was fired as head coach of the Browns. And the Skins are the Browns of old. Sigh

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Murray doesn't look as much of a track runner as RG3 but his weight/frame does not appear capable of handling hits from 300 lb DTs. If he were only taking hits from DBs then maybe. In comparison, Russell Wilson is listed at 215 and has the body of a RB. My greatest fear though is Allen again making choices that do not fit the coach or scheme. It's a very destructive pattern. I always like the theory of stockpiling picks. But, you always are passing on a known option for the unknown. Pass on a guy like Derwin James for the possibility that a player you like will be there at your lower selection. The Skins really have to trust in their scouting department - in the past their trades up never panned out. And their trades down into the second round were also busts. Your real goal seems to be that you want a QB and a OG selected at a reasonable draft pick value. That's understandable.

    WR rankings are all over the board at the moment. I think we will have to wait until the combine to see whether any stand out enough to be a reasonable value at #15. There are going to be some quality picks at different positions available at 15. But, I hope the Skins go for an X receiver this year (maybe in round 2 if a quality one is available).

    The Skins are 7-9 and most of their 7 wins were by a thread. I'm guessing that Alex Smith is out for most of next season. If the Skins start Colt McCoy but don't benefit from vastly improved WR play then I have a hard time seeing the team improve from 7-9. Let's say they are in the 5-7 win range which translates somewhere between pick 5 and 16. That's a huge range but with the number of highly touted QBs maybe it will be easier to pay the cost to trade up. IMO the question is how you rate the quality of the 4th best QB in the 2020 draft - if he's rated higher than the #2 QB in this draft then definitely wait.

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    It's unlikely that Smith is generate a lot of sacks in the future. Kerrigan gets sacks from the right and left side but Smith from neither. If he's not getting sacks with Kerrigan on the opposite side and the strong interior push from the DL it's not going to happen for him. Skins should not pay him 10million. That's a hope for future production rather than a plan. A reasonable base salary for his current production plus an incentive for 8, 10, 12 sacks is the best the Skins should do IMO. If they can't sign him to that arrangement then he should get his next contract elsewhere. Skins need to draft a speedy OLB now and develop plans for life-after-Kerrigan.

    Yes, shoring up the OL is a must this offseason but at 15 you never know who is going to be available. With the first four Redskin picks I'd like to get OL, WR, TE, and EDGE in no particular order. But if the better players happen to be ILB, CB, DT and S I would still be happy.

    From what I can recall given his limited playing time Gerod Christian was a big "meh". But that's not a knock on him. The Redskins knew he was very raw and needed time to be coached up (plus a lot of weight room work). I hope he pans out in the future but I don't expect anything next season (a pleasant surprise would of course be welcome). Nsekhe is another lineman that's always injured. You can hope he's available to cover for the oft-injured Williams but that's not a plan. Personally, I thought Bergstrom was suitable as a backup in the short-term (he covers both G and C). We all know that LG is a gaping hole but I think Skins need to be looking at both Tackle and Guard positions. I haven't looked much at these players yet - it would be nice to know whether the Skins had any long-term plans for OL play. I'd hate for the team to draft a Guard who is optimal on wide zone and screens and then have a coach come in who prefers power blocking.

    Those aren't highly ranked DTs at this time. It makes sense for the Skins to take advantage of the depth in DTs in this draft class and pick up a player graded higher than his draft position. Skins can take a developmental player using Stacy McGee's roster spot. McGee is paid a lot relative to his playing time and production. Keep the D-line pipeline filled IMO.

    Very interesting analysis. Skins aren't going to use a first round pick on an OT unless they expect to play him right away. Start him at LG with the expectation that he take over starting OT in the future? Or put him at T right away? Trent hasn't played a full season since 2013. But he's too good and 12million or so is too much to sit. Move him to G? Moses is also too expensive to sit. I'm not sure I'd want to trade either. Gerod Christian needs a year of development after his rehab before he may be an option.

    Skins should move on from Reed because of his contract and lack of availability. I doubt they will clean the roster because management thinks the team is on the cusp. Sprinkle has shown he can catch a few balls when given the opportunity. I'd promote Flanagan as the next blocking TE and then try to get one of these TEs in the draft. How high though? One of the third round picks on Hockenson or Smith? Or do you try to maneuver down in the first and get Fant?

    Agree 100% with the OP. Skins aren't anywhere close. It's not the coaching IMO. Skins have had three assistants leave and become head coaches. McVay and Kyle Shanahan leave and get better results when they have better talent. The difference in talent level is obvious. The top 3-4 receivers on each of the playoff teams seem better than any of the Skins. Top 2 RBs ditto. The Skins OL when healthy (and it's never healthy) doesn't do a better job. Skins DBs aren't as good in single coverage. LBs are slow. The Skins Dline has the most talent and it's on par with the playoff teams but there's no elite edge rusher.

    It Could Have Been Worse (or better)...A look back

    What's the point of saying it could be worse? It's unacceptably bad as it is.

    You have skipped over many of the bad trades and decisions during Snyder's ownership. Let's not delve into the dark closet. Try the Kool-Aid - it's grape this year.

    It's to the Cards advantage to pump up the value of their #1 pick. Don't let teams think you are going to pass on the QB.
