Man, I hope New York takes Herbert or Love just for the memes.
Really? Have you been following the team the last decade? Let me refresh your mind how toxic it was after RG3s injury. It was a constant media circus.
The DC media is ferocious. I for one don’t want it turned into another circus by bringing a diva who can’t just stick to football.
Not sure what RG3 has to do with OBJ. But ok.
you want Haskins gone and don’t want a talented WR.
sounds like he is going to browns. he is following all the browns players now
Please be their 2nd and OBJ
and good riddance either way. I’m not going to be rooting for him to do well. And I won’t feel poorly if it blows up in his face
he’s now Cousins 2.0 for me.
Obviously hoping it's a third but I'll take it. Aside from two overall that leaves them with two threes, two fours, one fifth, and two sevenths this year. Could package some picks to jump back into the second if they love a player, or if they keep it, they'll have four picks in the third and fourth rounds to build depth. Or throw one of those picks for OJ Howard and the trade essentially would be Trent + pick for OJ Howard + pick.
Also, Happy Chase Young Day everyone!
I'm struggling to think of a package I would accept from Atlanta to move all the way down to 16. Wouldn't pick up the phone unless it started with a Jones (Julio or Deion), two ones, and two seconds.
All I’ve read lately is MIA trying to get to 1 and 3. Nothing about 2. That would suggest they know 2 is off limits to them and any other team. A lot of information and mis-information out there but it seems clear the Skins are taking Young.
Maybe it's the complete lack of sports we've had but I am more excited than I should be for this draft. And there's also this:
This would be good news for the Redskins in terms of increasing Trent's value.
Trent is perfect for a win-now team. He’ll give them 3-5 years of excellent play (minus injuries). His age, contract and injury history make it hard to believe he’ll fetch a 1st, but some team could get desperate. In the end, I won’t be shocked if he’s protecting someone like Brees, Brady or Rogers next year. It makes a lot of sense.
Also, I’d prefer assets in next year’s draft so a 3/4 this year and a 2nd next would be great. A 2021 first would be even better. Rivera and his staff have plenty of roster talent to evaluate in year one, plus the defense with Young should be competitive immediately. I’d have a pretty high bar for that D right out of the gate, and I’d be expecting them to establish the identity of my football team.
Having more picks next year will help them in case Haskins doesn’t show enough. They should be prepared to move on quickly if they’re not sold on him after 2020. Two seconds next year and a mid-to-high first gives them a chance to get back towards the top of the order - or fill out roster with a second wave of young players if Haskins succeeds.
If I’m Rivera I’d have my sights set on 2022. By that time I’d want to have my QB in place and I’d be expecting to win the division and begin the quest for the Super Bowl in earnest.
As a Monikers fan, I’d be more than happy to watch a couple building years as long as the team showed progress and promise. It’s a doable turnaround as long as a viable QB emerges in the next two years.
Im sure an unpopular opinion but I wouldn’t list Taylor as a Skins great. The potential was there but he was tragically killed before he realized it.
Another sign pointing to Young at 2. If the Skins don’t take him the Giants will if Young makes it to 4.
Great =|= HOF
greatness doesn’t always have to be defined by longevity if the individual is super special.....and IMO Sean Taylor was that special.
It's just a hunch, but I could see Tua slip pretty far. His medical concerns seem to be reason for teams who like him to skip trading up for him and just seeing if he slides to their original 1st round pick.
There is an article in the WP today about the 2nd overall pick, and as far as QBs go, its a really awful history. Being the 2nd overall pick at QB, or even the 2nd overall QB taken, has not been very productive in recent history (30 some years)
