    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    Ron called him this weekend and told him don't risk pulling something in the underwear olympics. You will not get past pick 2.

    2020 ES GM's Mock Draft....

    I'll take the Bears if you still need somebody.
  3. I hope he listens to those advising him to retire. Next concussion could have permanent affects on the rest of his life.
  4. Del Rio and a new defensive scheme (with Chase Young) is good for a minimum 3 more wins next year. Year two improvements in DH and a better running game (TW starting at LT) is worth atleast two wins. 8-8 should be our expectations; a couple good breaks and we could squeak out a 2 more for a 10 win season. We should be competitive in every game.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    Just watched a couple Chase Young highlight videos. No doubt he is a dominant force; but he is the smallest looking 6'5 265 pounder on film I have ever seen. He pulled off on many QB sacks and passed up on some big hit opportunities. Probably coached that way to avoid penalties, but I hope hits Jones, Wentz, and Prescott a lot harder than he hit most of the QBs in college. Looking forward to seeing him in a Redskin jersey.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    Jordan Reed will never play football again; only thing left to determine is the injury settlement. Sure wish he could have stayed healthy because he had a bunch of talent and could have helped the skins. Unfortunately the overall team struggles wasted the few good years that he did have. I hope he can get healthy enough to live a good life away from football.

    Tua is just too big a risk. There is absolutely no reason to believe that he can be more healthy in the NFL than he was at Alabama. Even if his hip is fully healed, he just seems fragile and NFL defenders are bigger and faster. Zero chance the Redskins take him, possible some desperate GM false in love and chooses to permanently link his career to Tua and offers the world to get him. Burrow is Haskins last year with a National Championship. He had and outstanding year, slightly better statistically to the year Haskins had the year before. He played without hesitation and threw to a couple very good WRs. He is more mobile than Haskins, but his arm isn't as strong. Both he and Haskins made good decisions in college and had aggressive schemes to press the ball down the field. Both had very good run games and good balance offensively. (Note: Haskins beat him out at Ohio State for the starting job, Burrow transferred to LSU and it worked out pretty good for both) It is a bit confusing to me to hear some so anti Haskins coming out of college but so pro Burrow. All that said, the Bengals will take Burrow (and be happy about it). The Redskins will take Young (and be happy about it). Some team will probably go crazy and trade up to Tua (and will initially be happy but end up heart broken). From all I have read and seen, Tua is a great human being; overall great guy. I hope as a football fan he can get healthy and play. I just wouldn't bet anything I valued that this will happen.
  8. I agree a veteran WR is desirable, but I would not lock up anywhere near what Green or Anderson want. We appear to have a #1 in Terry so we just need a a solid #2. We need at least one TE, a couple CBs, a FS and at least one OL (assuming Trent starts at left tackle and we re-sign or tag Brandon at RG). I think we will most likely pick up a safety, a corner, a TE, and OL in free agency. Draft will fill remaining slots. Good free agency and solid draft we have the opportunity to be much improved and started down the path to respectability.
  9. Isn't it so nice to have the confidence that we have competent football guys making football decisions. It has seemed for so long that we lacked adults in the room. I'm starting to sip from the Kool-aid. HTTR.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    Evaluating talent is an art not a science. Just because you don't agree doesn't make them idiots. Historically, first round QB's are a 50-50 proposition. Odds are a little better on non QB's, especially defensive dudes. But all it takes is for one teams talent evaluators to fall in love with a player and crazy things can happen. Just look at Tua for example, he won't be a few teams boards at all because of his injury history but some team will forget the golden rule (hurt in college, hurt in the pros) and he'll most likely get drafted in the top 5. I work with an educated, smart guy despite the fact he is a Dolphins fan who is all in on Tua. I have zero trust in his health and wouldn't take him in the first round. One of us is wrong; Time will tell. I think this is what makes the draft so interesting.
  11. This sounds like a lot of hubbub about nothing. Agents pull this stuff all the time to get their agents more attention. If he is part of Ron's plan then he will get extended and get some guaranteed cash; if not, he'll get traded or they'll let him play out the year and walk. No news here.
  12. On a side note, Jim Zorn still can't win in DC (XFL).

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    What can't happen is a repeat of last year. Options as I see are: 1. Add a year to his contract, guarantee some of it. He starts for the Redskins the next two years. 2. Trade him. I expect a 2nd and maybe a 4th for him. If there is a first rounder out there even better. Either option is acceptable (I prefer option 1), but we must have some return next year. He should have been traded last year, but since he wasn't and we have had a complete staff change maybe this can be salvaged.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Dan Patrick asked Joe Burrow who was the best athlete on the team? He replied, without hesitation, Clyde. I don't think we should be thinking RB early enough to get him, but if we were going to pick a RB he would be tough to pass on.
  15. I just can't understand the opinion that it had already been determined Haskins is a bust. He showed progress in every start ( just like he did in college). I think he's going to very good, but I'm certain his future is yet to be determined. I fully expect he will be the starter this year and we will know a lot more about his potential this time next year. If he is as bad as some claim, we should have a pretty early pick again next year.
