Just for Fun...Redskins 2002 NFL Draft


Guest B&G

Recommended Posts

Just to start the conversation. At this early stage, of course, it's just for giggles. On a serious note, we truly are just a few players away from the playoffs, so this draft and what we do in F/A will determine how well we do next season.

Some Assumptions:

1) Banks is ridden out of DC on a rail.

2) We pick up one or two comp picks. I think we still owe KC our third pick for Marty and I've listed a third pick because I think we will have a comp, probably a 4 and a 5 we can trade for a 3.

3) We sign Blake and either Dilfer or Beurlein.

4) We sign Olin Kreutz from Chicago

4) Sage visits NFLE.

5) We resign Westbrook or sign a F/A like McCardell from JAC who will be available.

6) These folks are available in the rounds we propose to pick them.

B&G's Early Picks

1) Ryan Sims NC DT 6'3" 290

2) Byron Leftwich Marshall QB 6"6" 240

3) Scott Peters AZ State C 6"3" 310

4) Ed Ta'amu Utah OG 6'2" 320

5) Jon McGraw Kansas St FS 6"3" 200

6) Brett Kreisel BYU DE 6'6" 280

7) Maake Kemoeatu Utah DT 6'5" 309

RDSKNS2000, I didn't know you couldn't trade those comp picks. Shoot! Well, I know we need help at these positions so perhaps we just go to the next best athlete avialable if we don't have a three.

Does anyone know or have an opinion at to whether Leftwich will come out?

Sims is just starting to get a lot of press around here. Up to now he has been "the guy next to Peppers." Seems his stock has risen and he is projected to go in the middle of the first round.

I don't know enough about Leftwich other than that monster game he had against ECU. I have liked what I've seen of Harrington and Carr, but I would be against using an early round pick for another QB unless they fit into the teams' plans SOON. FA is our best bet to get a starting QB right now.

Back from a long hiatus to start the ball rolling on my favorite time of year-- the offseason.

Leftwich has said he's coming back to win the Heisman in 2002. A QB I do like who could be available in the mid rounds is Dave Ragone. Big, tough, and mobile. Fits todays NFL standard for a QB. Could take a couple years to develop, but between him and Sage, you may find a winner (something Banks IS NOT!)

I think Westbrook is gone. This said, I'd like to see the Skins go after a burner in the first three rounds, maybe Andre Davis out of Va. Tech?

Also imperative to find some young help along the defensive front (especially End), and a young OG would be nice. I'd like to see the Skins upgrade at safety also. Shade is OK, but WAY overpaid, and Terrell is NOT a starter in the NFL.

Feels good to be back.

I'm glad for Leftwich that he, apparently, has chosen to stay in college and get his degree.

Barring Leftwich's entry into the draft, as our #2 pick, I would select:

Daryl Jones Miami WR 6'1" 190 4.45

Fine Receiver and Punt Returner. We must add speed to our receiving corps, particularly if Westbrook leaves. Even with this pick, I still favor acquistion of a speedy veteran WR, like McCardell, through F/A.

Daryl Jones?? Guy doesn't deserve to be drafted in the first 4 rounds. As far as our first round pick .. if we lose to Arizona we still have a small shot at Kalimba Edwards dropping .. if he doesn't then you hve to look at guys like Sims, Roy Williams, Alex Brown, etc. In the second round I would look at Dorsett Davis from Mississippi St, William Joseph if he comes out, Will Overstret (might be a stretch there .. better third round choice but unfortunately we dont have one), Rohan Davey, Pig Prather, or Michael Lewis from Colorodo.

By the time of the draft, everyone will already know who the first round guys are. But some of the guys who'll drop below that would make terrific Skins.

I also have liked Rohan Davey, but Dusty Bonner out of Valdosta State will do nicely. Ragone didn't look that hot yesterday.

I'll take Fred Weary, an offensive lineman out of Tennessee in the late 2nd or below. I'd really like Kelly Washington, Tennessee's freshman WR - I think he's coming out, but he'll go in the first. I like Florida's Reche Caldwell WR (again, no way in the first round). Miami's other tackle, Joaquin Gonzales works for me. I love Colorado's Garoude (Guard/Center) but he'll go in the late first.

I love the draft...this stuff keeps me going through April.

REDSKINSHQ, what's not to like about Daryl Jones? Great speed, returns punts and looks like a natural for the slot position to me.

You may know something I don't since I only saw him play once this year against Virginia Tech.

I think the better known receivers will be long gone by the time we pick at #2 and Jones may still be around. Don't subscribe to the best athlete available theory at #2. We have to address team needs with that pick. Even if Westbrook stays, and that is doubtful, a little more speed in the 3 wide formations will help out, especially with a competent QB.

TennesseeCarl, once we're out of the playoffs I start thinking about the draft. Even though it doesn't mean much, its fun to speculate and hear others opinions. You said it best: It keeps us going until April!

By the way, all my kin are from Tennessee scattered in a line from Nashville to Chattanooga. I assume you live in the great Volunteer state. Whereabout if that's not too personal a question?

RedskinsHQ, you are absolutely right about Daryl Jones. I let my impression of him against Virginia Tech and the Sporting News evaluation sway me in his favor. He certainly in not deserving of a 2nd round pick as you correctly point out.

How about this man as a substitute for our #2 pick:

Kelly Campbell Georgia 5"11" 175 4.46

Could be the perfect fit at slot for us next year particularly when paired with a Crowell or a McCardell acquisition through free agency.

Joey Harrington looked tremendous in the Fiesta Bowl today against Colorado. I'm torn about drafting a QB though, especially in the first round, where someone like Harrington is sure to go. While QB's take time to develop, and therefore the sooner we draft them the better, I also think that the right veteran FA signing at QB will allow us to be competitive next year. Plus we can draft a young D-lineman and OG and plug them right in to contribute.

Leftwich and Davey have been my two favorite QBs in thinking about the draft. Harrington was amazing today. I still have some worry about him, but, that would be answered in workouts. I'd spend a second on Leftwich without blinking.

B&G...I'm over in West Tennesse, in Jackson, which is about midway between Memphis and Nashville.

The bowl games should elevate (and deflate) some prospects. I didn't see the game, but I hear Harrington impressed everyone. I liked what I saw of Rohan Davey - I think Davey will be available in the 2nd or 3rd if we want him. His mechanics aren't up there with Carr or Harrington yet. But I think his strength is a terrific asset.

It appears that there are going to be a bunch of fine WRs available again. Do we go to that well twice? If Josh Reed is there in the first, do we take him? (Personally, I say no, but if he's there in the 2nd, you might have to). I like the kid out of Georgia as well. Marquis Walker out of Michigan's got some talent. Is Javon Walker of Florida State a senior? He was excellent as was the Va Tech kid (who's going in the first round).

I expected more out of Colorado, but the Ducks were ready for them. Bad day for the Big Ten...maybe they'd better try to match up vs. the MAC.

Unless we lose Sunday we will have to move upto like #40 to draft Leftwich who is a local product and this years version of D Culpepper.

And I wouldn't blink drafting him in the second round

Scott Peters I'm trying to get info on him but if we did get him what do we do with Brandt the Center we picked up from Michigan? Is he going to play guard?
