    I’m still thinking the Redskins should go either FS, OL, DL or ILB with their 34th pick.

    You can never have too many corners or wide receivers but seeing as the DL, ILB, FS and right tackle spot still look like the weakest parts of the team I’d focus on those with the 2nd, 3rd & 4th round selections.

    Corner, Guard/center, WR can wait till the late rounds for Developmental prospects.

    I don’t see the point in drafting another mid to late round strong safety prospect. We have Phillip Thomas & Gumbs to develop there behind Ryan Clark this year.

      I agree for the most part, but I think it all depends on who’s on the board at the time. If one of the players expected to go in the first round like C.J. Mosley slides to them, I can’t see how the Redskins could pass on him because of the value. If Cyrus Kouandjio makes it out of the first round, then I think they’ll pounce on him. But the Panthers are a real threat to take him in the first round, because they desperately need a left tackle.

      I think the Redskins are going to have a tough decision to make at pick 34, as surely at least a couple of players worthy of first round consideration will fall to them. Plus, they may have some teams wanting to trade up into the 34th slot as well.

        That’s exactly how I feel. Same with Ryan Shazier, Clinton – Dix, Rasheed Hageman, Louis Nix, Bradley Roby, Calvin Pryor, Marqueze Denard, etc, etc any of them.

        The Redskins could take a DL, ILB/OLB, CB, FS, OG, T or WR and if they’re worth the value at 34 it’d be a good selection.

          I think both Clinton-Dix and Calvin Pryor as the top two safeties will both be long gone by the time the Redskins pick. But like I said it’s going to be interesting. As some of those players you mentioned will be on the board when the Redskins pick comes, and I’m not sure how they determine who the pick will be based on what they’ll have to choose from.

          It might be smarter to trade down with a team a few spots below them and try to get some extra picks in the third or fourth rounds. That way they’ll have a better chance to hit on a few picks that can help them this season.

            I’m not a fan of trading down. The Redskins need the most talented player they can get in any position but QB, RB & LT.

            As I said before, they could pick any player and I’d be satisfied as long as it’s one of the most talented players available in the areas they need at 34.

            I think trading down is a mistake, now… Trading up for one of the players we both listed! Sign me up for that!
