***OFFICIAL*** Washington Redskins “Treadmill to Nowhere” Thread

Recommended Posts

I’m sure I’m in the minority here, but I would not mind a reasonable trade up to get Haskins. Being a MD fan and watching a ton Big 10(or whatever they call it these days) I liked him a lot.

Buddy just sent me a screenshot of Haskins' mom in a Skins shirt. That seals it. Mark it, dude.

The more reaches that are made (thanks Raiders) the better shot Skins might get this pick right. I just hope they don’t trade up.

If Dolphins don’t take Haskins I’d say we got a QB. If he is taken before our pick would Lock be the pick?

Obviously all the reports say this was Dan’s pick. Will be interesting to see if Jay is free to start who he wants week 1.

Great pick for the Redskins.   This is a guy who's played big games, and knows how to win.   Not super mobile, but can make all of the throws.   Now get him some receivers.

Terrible pick. You punt this year upgrade OL or DL and grab a QB next year. Haskins upside is Alex Smith.

What’s interesting is that jays typical offense makes use of a mobile QBs.  That may be why he didn’t like Haskins.  Now, a good coach will scheme to his talent , but I’m not sure jay has shown the ability to do that.  My suspicion is that Haskins starts at some point this year but there is growing pains.  Next year Gruden is gone and perhaps new coach will design offense around Haskins strength.

 

ps I still like the pick.  Long term I think Haskins can be a successful starter

Wait we just traded up for the next pick?

depending on what we gave up I may dig it. 

If we take metcalf I’ll really dig it.

all depends on what we gave up

Only wrinkle here now is we have no 2nd round pick but two 3rd rounders.  We still need wide receivers; I guess we feel we can get some guys mid rounds...

Best pick of the draft so far! Sweat is a stud! Yes! Yes! Yes!

Gettleman really made a dubious pick by taking Jones instead of Haskins.    Not really impressed with Jones' tape.

Crossing fingers we get Debo, Brown, or Harry, trade those 3rds if need be

Great pick for the Skins.   The Raiders really wanted Sweat.

Sweat with those DT's and Kerrigan........so sick. Lots of pressure. Pressure without blitzing is the hardest to game plan for. So disrupting.

I agree with most of your post, but Jay Gruden and mobile QBs? Didn't he make his name off Andy Dalton? Cousins is Michael Vick now? I know Cousin has legs when he's needs them, but he's more Brady than Lamar Jackson.

I've been pretty negative in here but I gotta say, well done by the front office.  I'm not a big Haskins guy but whatever, we need a QB and didn't trade up to get him.  Sweat is a freaking stud, definitely worth a 2nd rounder next year.  Very pleasantly surprised with this draft so far.

Right I agree...doesn’t need to be Lamar.  Just some one who can get out on a bootleg or something snd make quick throws.  But point well taken...Haskins may have the mobility to run Grudens offense and of course I hope he does!

Yeah you know Bruce and Dan has a pretty good day one.  Both picks were good values at the point the player was drafted. Giving up a 2nd rounder next year not ideal but if Sweat turns out to be a difference maker it’ll be worth it...

Sweat was literally the only player worth trading up for.

It's nice to hear so many Redskins happy in here. Hard to complain with the moves they made. 

Still hope that they go CB in round 2 and WR in round 3 as I posted earlier in the thread.

Love this draft so far. Parris Campbell would be a nice pairing, in my imo.

It feels like this draft was run by Snyder and not Allen or Gruden.  And unbelievably that’s a good thing.  Possible long term QB and edge rusher.  

If they can get Haskins some weapons over the next 2 seasons while waiting out the Alex smith fiasco they may be a decent team come 2021.

Yes but I'm hoping somehow Butler falls. Or they even trade up to land him. He'd be a great fit IMO. But Campbell would obviously be good for Haskins too.

They don't have a 2nd rounder but do have 2 3rd rounders. One of those has to be a WR...I wouldn't be upset if they took 2 WRs in the 3rd. This draft is deep at WR and we have little to nothing (although I think Quinn is going to do great in the slot)

well, if these first two picks ultimately go south, boys, it's all my fault.

I said earlier Haskins was worth a slight trade up imo and the only other player worth consider @ 15 was Sweat. We got em both.

could not be more pleased.

Pretty happy with that first round. Two solid players.

So after a solid first round draft, who are realistic targets for the two third round picks we have this evening.  Acknowledging of course that Best Player Available always must be considered, it would be great to secure a wide receiver who can contribute right away.  We lack both speed and size in our receiving core, so it would be good to get a guy with some real physical skills.  I'd even be ok if we grabbed two WRs or packaged our two number threes to move up and get a better player.  

Beyond WR, we still need help along the offensive line, could use another corner back, and I tight end continues to be a need with Reed's ongoing health issues and Davis' age.

What does everyone else think?

The more lottery tickets they have, the better the chance at getting one to come up with Liberty Bells.  I think combining the 3rds is off the table and they blew their wad last night to move up for Sweat (which I was fine with).

With the injuries to the Skins OL last year, I read that a healthy group this year would rank out in the top 5. 

Definitely need some WR weapons for Haskins. It seems like we had 5-7 ok (#2-3) receivers last year, but no standout and definitely no number 1.

I really hope they have at least 2 WRs by the end of the 4th round. Its a huge need and a good draft for that position

One of them should probably be able to return kicks and punts. Or is Cromartie doing that now? If he makes the team?
