  1. Weak tackler. You can scheme to beat a corner that prefers to let someone else tackle, so he's a liability. Let his value go up, hope that Moreau improves and Alexander matures, sell high.
  2. I like these kind of signings. Maybe he is healthy and motivated enough to allow Moreau to play outside. If not, he's a veteran in the room who has played multiple positions. Get the vets in while you have young players who need to develop quickly. They have little choice but to hope for another jump from Moreau, and hope that Adonis Alexander can be groomed to replace Norman for 2020. Dunbar, assuming healthy, will be a decent stop-gap. Would be nice to use high picks outside of the secondary, but I fear that it may be necessary.

    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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I would guess diet and leg strength are the two keys for him right now.

    2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    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.
  12. 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.
