      Well I'll get us started.

      Assuming we keep the 6th overall choice I see one of the following players in a Redskins uniform next year.

      Gaines Adams
      Jamaal Anderson
      Alan Branch

      Its obvious we draft defensive line. Will we go Defensive End, or Defensive Tackle? Well, we have a young Kedric Golston who stepped in last year and played, to my expectations, very good. Also we have depth with Cornelius Griffin and Joe Salaveia (sp?). When I look at defensive end, I see older players. Phillip Daniels, Renaldo Wynn. The thing that concerns me is that the team has not approached them about taking pay cuts or restructuring yet because of the locker room and leadership value they bring to the team.

        I think that tackle is not as much of a need. Griffin when healthy can get pretty good penetration for a tackle. I think with a relatively small Carter on one side, you need to get the bigger end here in Anderson. He is more of a force on the run, but has a good motor to eventually build elite pass rushing skills also. I would like to see Wynn or Daniels stay, one of the two, or both if they take pay cuts, but I doubt that.

        On the other hand, if we had Branch in the middle he would make everybody around him better. To block out Griffin and Branch, that would take at least 3 linemen, or two and a fullback. This would create great lanes for blitzers and generally make the offense better.

        I can't really assess the needs untill after the free agency period. Allen out of KC is trying to get out, and if we get him everything changes.

        As of now, my draft board goes as:

        Branch
        Andersen
        Adams
        Okoye
        Carriker
        C.Johnson
        Moss


        If Okoye's stock doesn't rise too much from the combine, I would like to see if we could trade down and snag him and get some extra picks. I think if we are going long run, we need an anchor in the defensive line aka Branch.

              Adams and Okoye looked nice at the combine...

              Anderson however disappointed me in not running, I was expecting that he would run.

                  i was watching nfl path to the draft on the nfl network today and they had Mike Mayock on with his top 5 de's and jamaal anderson was ranked 4th behind adam carriker and jarvis moss. thoughts? he said he just wasnt sure if anderson was consistent enough and says he is there sometimes and sometimes not

                    Mayock also says the same thing about Branch & Adams, so pick your poison. At this point I favour Andserson slightly over Branch.

                        We need to stop the run and free up the LBers because even though we could never really get a pass rush, stoping the run had us as a top 10 D for 2 years in a row.

                          True, stopping the run is vital in winning in the NFC east. No team really has a weak running game. If we can force more teams to pass, we have a much better chance of winning.

                              I think DT is by far the biggest need for the Skins. Every year Griffin gets hurt for 2-3 games, and the dropoff in the run D is HUGE. I think Branch should be our #1 target in the draft because he could be a double edged sword for us. Our defensive scheme calls for Dline penetration, and he is both big enough to clog the middle, and agile enough for moderate penetration.

                              In my opinion, if we draft Gaines Adams he would only be a pass rush specialist on our team, because he and Andre Carter would get torched on running downs together. Our run D is weak on the edges as it is.

                              Jamal Anderson would be a better pick over Adams for our team, because he would complement Carter much better. Only problem is we have 2 similar older veterans on the roster at LDE, but Anderson should provide a better pass rush.

                              All that said, I think the Skins could be in prime position to trade back and still get Branch or Anderson. With the offseason moves, I think its very possible Adrian Peterson could fall to our spot, and a team like Atlanta or Buffalo could us a good deal. The question is, do we risk Branch getting selected by Miami.
