    Seriously, the Skins should just avoid the draft and take a vacation after the first 3 days of free agency when they get through overpaying for guys.

    notice how your run defense went to **** last season when you started all your rookies half way through the season? we never have to worry about that

    we target players, either via free agency or the draft, and we get our player

    we can afford to do it, so I see no problem with ignoring the draft, the draft is just a gamble anyways... free agents are proven

    we had no holes in our team (we had potential starters for OLB before the draft), young depth at a number of positions (look how much the Giants love our LBs, we obviously develop young talent well)... so we targetted the player we wanted and got him

    I don't believe in this "wait till a player you want falls to you" bull****, you want someone, you go get him

    not like we can't just trade to get a second next season if it's really that serious

    we have a bunch of picks today, do well with UDFAs, and already signed some depth... I have no worries when it comes to quality depth behind our starters

    You should notice this year that those excellent rookies have learned the ropes and are starting to dominate... and they're doing it for cheap wages because they're homegrown talent... not overpaid free agents. They'll be reasonably priced for the first few years of their rookie contracts.

    And no, you never have to worry about that either, lol.


    Every draft day is a dissapointment to Redskin fans... what else are you going to say? "We can't draft for s***?" "We never have any homegrown talent?" LOL, of course not.

    I was reading one draft report that said Mcintosh was a second day pick. LOL

    This is such an rehashed topic, one that was no more valid before than it is now.

    We have plenty of players we've drafted or signed as UDFA that are contributors, but I guess this fact gets lost in the rampant, ignorant Skins bashing that goes on around here.

    Pittsburgh Steelers, Super Bowl Champs

    19 of 22 starters from that team were drafted by the pittsburgh steelers. Redskins are following the Al Davis school of Making a Dominate team thru FA.
