  1. Skins draft a numbers game

    Apr 27, 2008, 8:16 PM EST

    It’ll take a wide-angle lens to take the class picture for the Redskins’ 2008 draft. Ten new players were selected Saturday and Sunday. That ties for the most players drafted by the Redskins since they started the seven-round draft in 1994. They also took 10 players in 2002. As the ’02 draft indicates, a lot…

    After months of grading, ranking, interviews, workouts, medical examinations, and meeting, the Washington Redskins’ draft board is no longer on a dry erase board. It’s in permanent ink, or at least it will be after they evaluate the results of today’s workouts with Clemson DE Phillip Merling and Oklahoma WR Malcolm Kelly. The timing of…

    The Redskins’ trade proposal for Chad Johnson may have been dead on arrival in Cincinnati, but it did serve a purpose. It added another layer of mystery surrounding what Vinny Cerrato and Dan Snyder are going to do with the team’s first-round selection on Saturday. Cerrato has been letting everyone who will listen know for…

    Dos uno’s wasn’t enough to get Ocho Cinco to Washington. I would have posted this sooner, but I was out looking for thank-you cards for Mike Brown and Marvin Lewis. However, the local Hallmark store had nothing in their “thanks for saving an organization from self-destructing” line. Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerrato have been drawing…

    I’m guilty as charged. Guilty of talking a good game when it comes to posts on the Redskins’ draft but coming up very small when it comes to actual content. I throw myself on the mercy of the court. I could talk about how rough things have been at work, how we’ve had a constant…

    There has been a lot of talk of the Washington Redskins trading down from their #21 slot in the upcoming NFL draft. In fact, Vinny Cerrato has publicly placed a “For Sale” sign on that pick. Such a move could garner the team picks high in the second and third rounds. That would give the…

    The Washington Redskins are in need of a big wide receiver. The West Coast offense, the scheme that Jim Zorn will be introducing to the team this year, works better when a big WR can go to the middle of the field, turn, and shield off a cornerback with his sheer physical size. Their starters…
