Redskins select...Jason Campbell, QB Auburn.
Well they do need another WR. One that works out and doesn't pout.
Roddy White I'd guess.
Heath Miller would be my surprze pick
Jason Campbell or Charlie Frye
I'd think WR since Moss hasn't turned up and Gardner is being run out of town . . . .
The Skins will trade with the Mystics for Temeka Johnson, a real point guard in a surprize move
Oh definetely, I am with you on that Woods but will they tradew down or is their day over?
2 minutes to go, bet they will trade down
Personally, I hope they take another QB!
I think White is a real talent and can stretch the field. I hope they trade down.
did they bust?
Wow, now they have yet another QB controversy on their hands. . . .
Campbell - that is just too sweet. Another young mediocre QB that they spend a first rounder on. They have also turned over their first rounder next year which could very well be a very high pick again.
Pretty good day for a Boys fan so far.
Jason Campbell, LOL another QB competition and Gibbs must like him a lot to pick him with his last pick. roflmao
Jason Campbell, QB, Auburn
Height: 6:04.2 Weight: 223
Overview: Campbell's development at the quarterback position was a major reason Auburn put together an undefeated 2004 season. This was a player that worked with four different offensive coordinators during his four years with the Tigers, but it was quarterback guru Al Borges who unearthed and fine-tuned the impressive athletic ability that Campbell possesses. Campbell was a Parade All-American and Gatorade Player of the Year in Mississippi as a senior at Taylorsville (Miss.) High School. Prep Football Report and Super Prep rated him the second-best quarterback in the nation. Campbell led the team to the state semifinals, passing for 2,884 yards (167-of-293) and 24 touchdowns and rushed for over 500 yards and six touchdowns in 1999. As a junior, he hit on 174 of 291 passes for 2,719 yards and 33 touchdowns to lead the squad to the state title. Campbell also excelled in basketball, earning All-State honors after averaging 22 points, eight assists and 12 rebounds as a junior to also pick up District Most Valuable Player accolades. While his brother, Larry, decided to stay close to home and play linebacker at Mississippi State, Jason enrolled at Auburn, redshirting as a freshman in 2000. He started seven games in 2001, sharing playing time with Daniel Cobb. Campbell finished with 1,117 yards on 89 of 142 passing with four touchdowns and four interceptions. His pass completion percentage of 62.7 was the best ever by an Auburn freshman quarterback and ranks sixth on the school's single-season record list. He again shared playing time with Cobb as a sophomore, compiling a 5-1 record in the six games Campbell started. He connected on 94 of 149 passes (63.1 percent, the fourth-best season total on the school's record chart) for 1,215 yards, eleven touchdowns and five interceptions. He did fumble the ball seven times and was sacked fourteen times for losses of 99 yards in 2002. Working with his third offensive coordinator in 2003, Campbell struggled to find the end zone consistently in his first year as the full-time starter. He hit on 181 of 293 passes (61.8 percent) for 2,267 yards (sixth-best season total in Auburn annals), eight interceptions and only ten touchdowns. He was not afforded the protection he had in the past and the result was Campbell being sacked 25 times for minus-198 yards. Another coordinator change saw Campbell's senior season turn into a magical one. Borges is well-known for his ability to develop quarterbacks and took Campbell under his wing. Long hours in the offseason paid off, as Campbell would outperform the Southeastern Conference's more heralded passers to earn SEC Offensive Player of the Year honors from the league's coaches and the Associated Press. He was chosen a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award and for the inaugural Manning Award given to the nation's best collegiate quarterback. Campbell also was a semifinalist for the Davey O'Brien Award and named one of the ten players to watch for the Walter Camp Award. For the first time in his career, Campbell felt comfortable with the offensive system. No longer in fear of being yanked for a bad play, he proceeded to complete 188 of 270 passes for 2,700 yards, 20 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. His pass completion percentage of 69.6 ranks second on the school's single-season record chart, topped only by Ben Leard (70.7 percent) in 1999. Only Dameyune Craig (3,277 in 1997) threw for more yards in a season for the Tigers. Campbell's 188 pass completions rank fourth on Auburn's season record list and his 2,730 yards in total offense rank third. His 31 victories (31-8 record) as a starter are the most by any passer in school history and eighth in the SEC. For his career, Campbell gained 7,299 yards on 552 of 854 passing (64.6 percent), with 45 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. Only Stan White (8,016, 1990-93) threw for more yards in a career for the Tigers and White is the only other Auburn player with more pass completions (659) and pass attempts (1,231) than Campbell's total. His pass completion percentage of 64.6 established a school record, surpassing the previous high of 61.5 percent by Jeff Burger (1984-87). Only Pat Sullivan (53, 1969-71) tops his 45 touchdown passes in school history.
Analysis: Positives... Has a very strong throwing arm and quick feet to avoid pressure, but is better suited throwing out of the pocket. ... Does a nice job of carrying out fakes and has a quick, high release with the strength to get the ball downfield. ... Is developing good toughness in the pocket and no longer looks for a rush lane or to hold on to the ball too long when his primary targets are covered. ... In 2004, Campbell had very good success with the deep outs, fades and posts. ... Shows better timing and the ability to give his receivers a chance to compete for the ball than he did in the past. ... Does a good job maneuvering when forced out of the pocket, but is better standing in the pocket than on the roll out, as he is more effective when he has a chance to time his throws. ... His natural athletic skills are what makes him an intriguing prospect, but understand that this is a player that has had to digest four different offensive systems during his four years in college. ... Made excellent progress in most areas of his game over the last year. ... Used to lock on to his main target too much, but coach Al Borges showed him that with patience, he does a much better job of scanning the field or taking hits stepping up in the pocket.
Negatives... Still, for a player of his size, he shows good mobility. ... When he rolls out of the pocket, he will sometimes hold the ball low and exposed, resulting in costly fumbles. ... Still needs to show better judgement, but has the power behind his throws to thread the ball in a crowd. ... His touch on his long ball has improved quite a bit, but he still needs to work on his underneath throws. ... Still has not fully grasped the mental aspect of calling his own game yet, and will need to have the plays called for him until he can prove that he can handle play-calling on his own. ... Does well in school (3.0 grade point average). His first Wonderlic test score (14) was lower than you like from a player at the quarterback position, but he then scored a much-improved 28 at the Combine in February. ... Needs to work on some fundamentals, especially his feet in his pass set, but he has the quickness to get back from center. ... Made more sound decisions in 2004 than he did in the past, but he still must improve in reading coverages.
Agility tests: CAMPUS: 4.69 in the 40-yard dash. ... 285-pound bench press. ... 370-pound squat. ... 305-pound power clean. ... 35-inch vertical jump. ... 33 -inch arm length. ... 9 1/8-inch hands. ... Right-handed. ... 14/28 Wonderlic score. COMBINE: 4.72 seconds in 40-yard dash. ... 28 Wonderlic score. ... Did not participate in other workout drills.

BAD DAY AT eXTREME i AM SURE
Very equivalent to QC minus drug and bipolar issues. Maybe Snyder saw how many times QC beat the SKins and got excited. Good mobility but inconsistent mechanics.
It seems most underestimate Campbells' ability
