    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Felt they should have gone with Derwin James - particularly as there was talk in the war room about this and DJS has blown a few coverages this year - but I suppose there is the argument that drafting Payne is a personal investment in Allen. With the first rounder, and where they will likely end up, think they'll go with a linebacker to build off the front seven focus. Ideally: Devin White, LSU or Josh Allen, Kentucky Consolation: Te'von Coney, Notre Dame Noah Fant, Iowa would be good too
  2. It's not weight, it's not that he's short - It's the slightness of his frame. How much muscle can he put on and can he take the hits? Someone posted a photo of Kendall Fuller earlier arguing their similar builds, look at the size difference in the calves, knees and quads/hammy's.
  3. Think the expectation internally is that the future CB1 was drafted in Moreau, but otherwise a first round corner next year becomes almost as likely as NT was this year.
  4. I would guess diet and leg strength are the two keys for him right now.

    A less jacked Ndamukong Suh was the best I could think of.

    The Redskins front office/coaches are placing a high emphasis on having a high safety with speed to play in their cover 3. Essential to challenge Nicholson to take the next step. Defense struggled with Hood and McClain, and all the injuries to the front seven, but the Redskins defense had the most difficulty adapting to losing their ability to run an effective modified cover 3.

    What to do with LG

    I think their hope is for a starting calibre guard to be released and they need someone who knows what to do in the meantime.

    Gruden has his Landry/Edelman. Hoping Crowder can net a 5th round compensatory pick in 2020.

    Trent Williams convert to LG, Will Shields #HOF

    You don't take your highly paid All-Pro LT and move him to the least important position on the offensive line. His athleticism is still off the charts; no reason to switch positions.
  10. Maybe I am too often contrarian and that blends into my thinking here, but I see McGee as one of the four locks (with Allen, Ioannidis, Lanier) before heading into the draft. If choices have to be made to keep the DL at 6 players, I think we'll see Taylor as the last cut with Hood receiving some consideration. If Hankins is signed, I think they go with 7 DL. Either way, I wouldn't be shocked to see the OL and DL get a +1 to their typical group size this season based on last season.

    Hopefully the McClain signing/failure is a strong lesson learned for those who lobbied to sign him. Too bad everyone is lumping McGee in with McClain - the former had an impact last season with further room to grow and positional versatility.

    Certainly looks like this is one part of the plan to replace Crowder, from a receiving standpoint.

    Torn on who I am hoping for....I feel they see RB > LG as a need, but who knows. Hope there is a trade down more than trade up, but I can understand the logic of getting who you want at the top of the 2nd. Could trade up later depending on how the draft unfolds with 2019 picks.

    Edmunds probably has the higher upside with his frame. He's got lineage. You accept the risk.
