    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    No offense to Haskins but does anybody else really hate the rumor that Allen and Snyder are deciding what QB we should pick? Does this jive with what we heard earlier in the year where it's Allen/Snyder vs Gruden/Kyle Smith on personnel decisions? Ticks me off...ugh...

    Good grief, this is why there seems to be a building "panic".

    Only reason I could see them doing it is if Murray drops and Jay would want to get in front of his brother at #4, right? Meanwhile, still doing some work. Good read. Interesting.

    Is it just me or does Hock look like a hobbit?

    EDIT - I see SIP posted a few points earlier but here is the actual PC. Good listen and few points of interest from Doug. 1) Reiterated didn't want to move up 2) Have needs at all positions and when pushed for strongest area of the team he mentioned D-Line but it doesn't mean they wouldn't draft one (assume Edge) 3) Wants to stick to their "board"

    Didn't see this mentioned but it would make Thursday night very interesting. Prisco is no "hack" with info.

    Sheesh, not a fan of Jones but gonna trust the Skins scouting/coaches on this one. Hearing more and more chatter about Jones to Skins, i.e. Casserly says the dude is a Brad Johnson, Trent Green or Kurt Warner - not strong arm but super smart and great game tape....okay. LOL This Jones stuff to Skins started earlier in the year so there must be something people are hearing. From January.... https://www.redskins.com/news/2019-mock-drafts-daniel-jones-to-the-redskins
  9. LOL BT - however was bantering with a stupid die hard Eagles fan and he thinks Wentz is a bust and they made a mistake letting Foles go. Apparently there are a lot of people up in Philly that feel the same.
  10. Missed in the Ionnidis news is the signing of a camp "arm". Local guy who grew up in Roanoke and played in the AAF.
  11. They like Sims a lot. I think he takes a big step this year. https://www.redskins.com/news/fully-healthy-wide-receiver-cam-sims-aims-to-validate-preseason-success NFL Sundays took a toll on Redskins wide receiver Cam Sims last season. Physically, Sims suffered a high ankle sprain on the opening kickoff of the regular season opener that landed him on Injured Reserve. But that wasn't the main cause of his frustration and disappointment. In a little over a month, the undrafted free agent out of Alabama had returned to full strength. It was the mental aspect that proved much more difficult, especially after the Redskins activated wide receiver Trey Quinn and running back Byron Marshall off IR in November, effectively ending Sims' rookie campaign. By rule, NFL teams are only allowed to activate two players off IR per season. So while Sims was healthy enough to play, he would have to wait until next fall. "Every Sunday I would cry because I wasn't out there playing," said Sims, who estimates he watched three or four games throughout the year. "I just had to get up out of that. After I stopped crying, I was just like, 'Man, let's go. I can't do that. Let's go. Let's go do something. Let's go work.'" Since early January, Sims has spent nearly every weekday at the Inova Sports and Performance Center at Redskins Park preparing for the upcoming season. He's out to prove that his productive preseason, during which he led the team in receiving yards, was not an aberration but rather a sign of what's to come. "To pick up where I left off," Sims said about his expectations for this season. "Just to keep going and going. I know I had a great year last year before I got hurt, so I just want to pick up and do better than I did last year." Sims, a 6-foot-5 outside target who signed with the Redskins on May 2, quickly earned the recognition and respect of his new coaches. He had a "tremendous" training camp according to Senior Vice President of Player Personnel Doug Williams and served as the Redskins' top receiving option during the preseason, catching five passes for 131 yards. He nearly added a touchdown, too, with his reception between two Jets defenders on Aug. 16, but the play was called back because of a penalty. When asked about the preseason wide receiver battle, Williams said, "I think what has happened is the free agent kid from Alabama threw a hand grenade in this thing." A four-star recruit out of Ouachita Parish High School in Louisiana, Sims rarely contributed during his time at Alabama. He caught just 41 passes for 467 yards and two touchdowns over four seasons, playing mostly in the shadow of current Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley and a dominant Crimson Tide rushing attack. Still, the Redskins saw enough potential in Sims to sign him as a free agent, and right up until the start of the season he did not disappoint. "Well he's got the measurables," Gruden said of Sims in mid-August. "He's big, he can run, you wonder why he didn't get drafted, a guy like that. Seem him workout, seen him out there, he's an impressive guy." Sims ended up making the 53-man roster and was on the field during the opening kickoff of the Redskins' season opener against the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 9. But that was the extent of his NFL debut. One moment he was blocking and the next he felt somebody land on his left ankle. He had to be carted off the field with what was later diagnosed as a high ankle sprain, landing him on IR.
  12. Hypothetical - What would you give up for AJ Green? He's 31 , been oft injured the last 2 years, in his last year of contract and Bengals would take a $3 mil cap hit but save $12 mil with a June cut. https://twitter.com/incarceratedbob/status/1105928352748236801 Rumors: AJ Green trade chatter starting to filter out into the air Something to watch for later date #NFL #Bengals

    I don't know whether you listened to Casserly on the Junks yesterday but pretty much without hesitation his best guess at Skins #15 was Daniel Jones. Pretty sure the boards will explode if they do that...LOL
