As much as I love Albert, I hope we don't get him. If everyone's coach scouting draft boards are even remotely close, he's going way to high for us to be taking a guard this year.
I love it.
My guess is you would have to trade up to get him. I would love for the Skins to take him, but I don't think he'll be around for us at 21. The Redskins beat writer mentioned in his blog today that if he falls past 15, the Skins might look to trade up. I wouldn't want that either, just trying to emphasize that he almost certainly won't be there for you.
I'd take him at 28. Reports of him being taken in the top 20 are a bit silly.
please take him at 21
Oh, dear lord, please do trade up for a guard. That will certainly show that Danny has turned over a new leaf.
Well, i think the thought process is that he would start out as a guard and then move to tackle after a season or two. Not saying a agree with it - in general I think it's a bad idea to trade up - but he has more value than an average guard.
Oh, that's even better. Trade up for a guy that's unproven because of a major position change. That makes MUCH MORE sense.
Actually it does because the Redskins would have two or three offseasons to see if he can make the switch, and if he can't then they just keep him as a guard. His is worth more than a guard who has no shot at moving to tackle.
lmao...Kiper just said that Albert won't be around for the Bears at 14...
rays: let it be
I hope so too...but it will make my January wish list pretty silly where I had hoped we could get him in the third. :
He incredibly quick for a man that is 310 pounds and could play any position on the line. Call him a tackle and he goes top 10. There is no question he can excel in space.
I'm down for that too :
That's an awful big assumption you're making there based off reading a couple profiles.
Hehe, I was hoping the Redskins would find Rodgers-Cromartie in the third, so I feel you.
I agree, I think people are running away w/ this OT thing after seeing him in action for only 2 starts there at UVA
He is pretty quick, but while I've watched him play on several occasions, I haven't seen him take any snaps at tackle. I'm not sure any intelligent NFL personnel would take make such a pricey assumption to take him in the top ten...I guess we'll see.
