    Deandra Coleman’s stock is rising, and he will almost certainly be off the board before the end of the 5th round. And why would the Skins use their highest pick on an undersized (230 lb) OLB, when what they’re trying to come up with is someone to replace Fletcher (a 245 lb ILB). Especially since all but the highest rated ILB–the kind from Bama– will still be on the board by the 34th pick. If the Skins elect to go for an ILB with their highest pick, it would actually make more sense for them to trade down into the middle of the second round, pick up another 4th round pick, and still be able to get a kid like Stanford’s Skov, or the kid from U Conn, or the one from Wisconsin. That would be wise, given the Skins many needs, and given that this is a very deep draft as a whole, with starter-level quality available for many positions well into the 4th round.

      Shazier won’t always be 230, he’ll get bigger. The point is he has first round value, and a bigger upside than Shayne Skov, and I like Skov by the way. Check some of my previous mocks, I’ve had the Redskins taking him. And I also realize the Redskins might trade down, and it would be a smart thing for them to do, but you can’t really mock a trade. But good analysis though Gary.

        I hear you, Maurice…but I still don’t like, and doubt the skins will go for a linebacker with pick 34, though I also appreciate what you say about not mocking trades. If you consider Jackson, and a resigned Rak, Kerrigan, and Riley, they already have 4 good linebackers, and if they address defense, which they should, no other position on the D side of the ball has anything like that depth going into the draft–though in truth, they also need another ILB. I’m not sure if they yet have a single safety, for example, that is good enough to start, and cornerback also needs to be strengthened, and probably DE. And as you know, the OL is a definite mess, and really needs a major infusion of talent, especially given the heavy investment into RG3 who needs better protection. They also need a new slot receiver to replace Moss, and ideally one who can return kicks, plus they need another TE. That’s a lot of remaining holes, and even with free agency signings, there are probably too many holes to fix in a single off-season. The good news here, is that for the first time in two years, they’ll actually have some cap room for spending. And secondly this is a deep draft.

          This is a deep draft Gary, with so many underclassmen coming out it’s one of the deepest drafts in recent memory. That’s why the Redskins should trade down in the second round to get more picks. Drafts like this don’t come around often.

          You seem to be well informed on the draft and the Redskins. You ever thought about writing about them?

          • garysroses

            As earlier stated, Maurice, I too recognize the depth of this year’s draft class, and combined with the many needs the Redskins have, I too think the best move is to trade down later into the second round, and pick up another pick, likely a 4th rounder, and possibly even a 3rd, depending on how far they trade down. But while earlier reflecting the many needs the Redskins have, there’s perhaps the biggest one of all that I didn’t mention. But let me state it as a question: do you feel that the Skins have had–ever since Beathard, or certainly Casserly–a really top-notch evaluator of talent? Don’t see Allen as that, though he’s supposed to be good at managing the cap.

            As for writing about the Redskins, I’m a professional writer, and would LOVE to write about the Skins, whom I’ve been intimately following going back to the days
            when its roster was lily white, and had their asses regularly kicked in the humble confines of GRIFFITH Stadium(!). So I’d love to write about the Skins, but how to break in? Your thoughts?

          • http://fanonfiresportswire.com/ Maurice Barksdale

            I don’t see Allen in the same category as Beathard and Casserly either, but I guess we’re about to find out about him very soon.

            And as for breaking into sports writing, Fansided is a good way to do it. I’m looking for staff writers for Riggo’s Rag, which is the Washington Redskins site on the Fansided Network. I wrote my own blog, and I’ve been the editor of Riggo’s Rag since last October, and things are going well. But I could use more good writers. So maybe you would consider joining my staff for RIggo’s Rag?

            You obviously have a passion for the Redskins, are already a writer, and you seem to really know what you’re talking about in your comments. So why not turn those comments into articles published on here? I think you could add something good to this site. And while it’s not a paying job, it’s a way to break into sports writing, and could possibly lead to something more down the line, if you wanted to pursue it.

            So if you’re interested Gary, you could submit a test article to me on the Redskins, and if all looks good, I’ll talk to Fansided about bringing you on board with Riggo’s Rag. You can e-mail it to me. My e-mail address is listed on my staff page.

            Sounds good, Maurice, will submit something to you in the coming days
