Redskins Insider: April 12, 2009 - April 18, 2009

Orakpo vs. Ayers

We've spent the past few days discussing the Skins' strong interest in Texas DE Brian Orakpo, and following that I received a few emails about Tennessee DE Robert Ayers, a similar player also projected to go in the first round. While some have reported the Skins are big Ayers's...

Orakpo, Sanchez Scenarios, Updates

I continue to hear that the Skins' primary focus is to move up to draft USC quarterback Mark Sanchez; however, if they do not and if Brian Orakpo is untaken at 13, he would be a frontrunner for them. (That is assuming Sanchez were off the board.) Moving up for...

Draft Scenario: Orakpo Slips to Skins

Let's say the Redskins aren't able to trade up in the NFL draft and take USC quarterback Mark Sanchez, the apple of the owner's eye, and let's rule out the idea that Sanchez is still on the board at 13, because I just don't see that happening. And let's say...

Could Boldin Be in Cards for Skins?

Another name has officially hit the market, with the Arizona Cardinals saying they'd be open to trading wide receiver Anquan Boldin. Naturally, the Redskins are mentioned in the speculation about possible trade partners, just as they were with Terrell Owens and Jay Cutler. However, I'd expect the Skins' response to...

Updating Skins' Interest in Sanchez

Spoke with a league source who had a little more information on USC quarterback Mark Sanchez, whom the Redskins are strongly interested in drafting with their 13th overall pick in the April 25-26 draft. Sanchez, according to a league source, will have visited Detroit, St. Louis and San Francisco by...

Skins' Interest in Sanchez Still Strong

The Redskins have maintained strong interest in USC quarterback Mark Sanchez, according to team and league sources, and are evaluating him closely as a top candidate to be selected with their 13th overall pick in the April 25-26 NFL draft. There is a possibility that Sanchez, considered by some to...

Keep an Eye on Toler in 3rd Round of Draft

Most of the draft focus is generally on the first round, which is understandable. And with Skins owner Daniel Snyder smitten now with yet another quarterback - USC's Mark Sanchez has become the hot target inside Redskins Park, according to sources - there's all the more reason to concentrate on...

Handicapping NFC East; Your Turn to Predict

Mark Maske took stock of the NFC East based sheerly on the schedules. Cliff's Notes version: Giants have it rough early, Eagles have a "forgiving" home stretch at the outset and whatever the Cowboys do, you'll have to watch because it'll be played out nationally in five prime-time games. As...

Skins' Key Stretch Just Might Be Weeks 2-4

I don't think I'm going to be breaking any new ground, but here's my first take on the Redskins' schedule: Obviously, it's a tale of tough halves, and the Skins had better get off to another quick start because I think it's going to be tough sledding after the Nov....

Besides the Redskins, he has visitedwith the 49ers, Dolphins, Chiefs, Chargers and will visit the Rams and Titans later this week, according to a league source. Many have him projected as going a...

Waiting for Goodell; Devin Thomas Blogs

Happy schedule week...it's a stretch, I know, but it's the Monday after a long holiday weekend and that's all I've got. As we mentioned last week, NFL commish Roger Goodell will reveal the schedule (supplying the dates and times; we already know the who and the where) at 7 p.m....
