Here are our five most popular posts from the week that was.

1. Clark talks about RG3’s logo, Jackson’s absenceAs it turns out those were topics of interest and discussion among some fans and some in the media but not so much on the team.

2. CSN Washington mock draft ver. 7.0This time Ben Standig goes two picks into the third round so that we get his prediction on the Redskins’ first two selections. Spoiler: I like them both.

3. The five best players drafted with the 34th pickTwo players who were picked in the same slot as the Redskins’ top pick this year went on to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

4. Redskins depth chart help wanted: OffenseA look at what the team needs to do to fill out the 90-man roster for workouts, OTAs, and minicamps.

5. Need to Know: Five popular Redskins mock draft picks at No. 34—My unscientific survey results. It’s early but the chances seem pretty good that the name of the Redskins’ pick on May 9 is on that list.

    As the Redskins fill out the 90 man roster, I hope they sign about 7 Undrafted Free Agents on both sides of the ball (14 total). We all know that these guys will be fighting just to make the Practice Squad but I hope the new coach gives these guys a few reps in preseason games. IMO Coach Shanahan’s rule of good practice gets you on the field was missed used (IMO this rule was used to control guys and make them work within his system). I do not think you can fully evaluate a guy until you see him in a preseason game. There are guys who are not great in practice, but when the clock is running on game day they can really “ball” and make plays. You must remember that even the great Pete Rose was not the best player on his High School baseball team (that was Ed Brinkman) and he didn’t get into a preseason game with the Reds until their 2nd basemen pulled a muscle (Don Blasintgame). You never know if you have a “Gamer” unless you get him into a Game! (Brinkman / Blasingame, the 1964 Senators double play combo). This team could use a few Rusty Tillman types. Archives
