They couldn't and didn't turn down Jacksonville's offer. They turned the pick they got to move down 6 spots into 6 picks that were ultimately 5.
The third rounder they got from Miami turned into Leonard Hankerson.
The fourth rounder they from Houston turned into Roy Helu, Jr.
The fifth rounder from Miami resulted in DeJon Gomes.
The sixth rounder from Houston resulted in Aldrick Robinson.
The 7th round pick from Miami resulted in Maurice Hurt.
The 7th round pick from Indianapolis resulted in Markus White.
Now tell me, would you want those players or stay at 10 and take Gabbert or Dalton (since he was picked before their 2nd round pick.)
Thats all great in hindsight. You were touting both those players to the Skins as guys the Redskins coveted which obviously they weren't. Im glad they got depth, but prior to all the draft day trades you were selling either Dalton or Gabbert to the skins as pretty much a sure thing which is why I will take the VY to the Skins with a grain of salt.
Which would be the worst possible situation. If we have say the 13th pick next year, I'll trade all 7 draft picks and a future pick for Andrew Luck. I am not exaggerating Andrew Luck IMO is the best QB prospect easily since Carson Palmer, and you can argue Peyton Manning. He has an Aaron Rodgers skill set with a Matt Ryan brain. I know these are ridiculous claims but trust me I don't throw around prospect praise like this ever. His only knock is he doesn't have a Jamarcus Russell cannon but it's still pretty damn good. I've seen him throw it 55 yards while falling forward without being able to twist his torso into the throw.
Haha, I get it, Luck is the real deal and I too think he's worth gambling all of your picks to get him, no joke. Palmer didn't look very good until Pete & Chow got to SC and I'd say that Luck looks like a better prospect. He's doing it with a lot more junk surrounding him. Luck is worth the price of admission and just seems like one of those good kids. If Locker is worth the 8th pick...man...
By the way, I remember that you called Arian Foster last year. I'm hitting you up for "sleepers" this year...
You DO know things change during the draft, don't you? Players they think will be there are gone, etc. But fine. I won't post anything anymore.
Yea I am aware things change but you seemed real confident that Dalton was going to be a redskin...if a team likes a player they will find a way to draft him. My mistake for believing you. I still doubt VInce Young becomes a redskin
Leonard Hankerson/WR/Washington/Round 3/No. 79: Hankerson's inconsistency and untimely drops pushed him into the third round, yet he possesses the physical skills to be a productive second wide out on the NFL level. He will immediately help the receiver needy Redskins.
Roy Helu/RB/Washington/Round 4/No. 105: Helu was the second skill player the Redskins chose in round four. He's a triple threat running back who will compete for the starting position.
Chris Neild/NT/Washington/Round 7/No. 253: The fact Neild was the second-to-last player selected is mind-blowing. He's a 320-pound slugger who brings his lunch pail to work every day and is a prospect coaches will love. Don't be surprised if he's starting by the end of his rookie season.
I like all three of those picks. Hankerson was projected alot earlier than his actual draft spot. The Neild pick was great IMO, really underrated NT who should be able to play a role on the defense right away.
