Everyone in DC wants to see the Skins get as high as they can in the draft now that they are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Most people want to see them draft Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin, III. Others want to see USC’s Matt Barkley. I think we have a problem in getting one of these guys. The Cleveland Browns.
The first three picks in the draft are pretty set. Indy will definitely get the first pick. St. Louis should close out the number two pick. The third pick should go to Minnesota, especially after they lose to the Skins at FedEx (knocking on wood). But if the Skins win that game, it should put them at no less than 5-11, knocking them down into the same record that Cleveland and Carolina could have at the end of the season. The Panthers’ last three games are vs. Houston, Tampa Bay and New Orleans… it’s possible that they lose all 3 and fall to 4-12, locking up the fourth pick. Lucky for us, they don’t need a QB.
But then there’s the Browns. They need quite a bit. And with QB’s like RGIII, Barkley and even Landry Jones that are projected to be still hanging around at that point in the draft, it could benefit them to pick any one of them up. They have so many holes, you just don’t know what they could do. And with their last three opponents being Arizona, Baltimore and Pittsburgh, I don’t know if they move past 4 wins. They could be above Washington.
So while everyone in DC is running around talking about who we will pick up at #4 or #5, they’d better be praying we get it. And they’d better pray that Griffin is available and Kyle has the sense to draft him (that’s who’s really running the offensive show guys… don’t be fooled.)
