Why is anyone, other than a professional scout, thinking about the draft when there are six games left?

A lot of us are big college football fans and we like to discuss college players and how we think they would do in the pros.

Repost from the last thread:

It would be absolutely stupid at this point to spend our first round (potentially high) pick on a RB when Shanny has made otherwise "bad" RB's look good. We have too many other needs (Like FS, CB, 3-4 OLB/DE/etc.) that would be a valuable, value pick in the first round. Please tell me what AP and Knowshown Moreno (or whoever the heck the RB is for Denver) are doing to win games for their team. You have to fill the other holes before you can spend a high draft pick on a RB.

Beeps we don't play so why not look ahead at the draft it's fun.

There have been two guards drafted with a top 15 pick since 1997.

There has only been 1 C drafted with a top 15 pick since 1993.

Not saying you can't get a great player but you better be right, otherwise you wasted a chance at a real game changer.

Since it won't be posted by Reid until tomorrow here you go.

Redskins sign Macho Harris
Posted by Michael David Smith on November 23, 2010, 3:34 PM EST
The Washington Redskins have made a move to bolster their injury-depleted secondary, signing free agent defensive back Macho Harris.

Rich Campbell of the Free Lance-Star reported the signing this afternoon, and PFT has confirmed it.

Harris was a fifth-round draft pick of the Eagles in 2009, and he was a pleasant surprise early on, earning a spot in the starting lineup for the beginning of the regular season.

But Harris struggled this offseason as he moved around between safety and cornerback, and he was waived just before the start of the 2010 regular season. After two months away, he’s now back in the league and back in the NFC East.

Beep if you try watching College ball you will find that it is very entertaining. It helps to have a team that your root for too.. Plus attending a college game in a quality atmosphere is a must.

The intensity and passion of a Major college program on gameday cannot even be compared to the pros. It is such a better experience.

Macho is a straight up play maker. But he is also a big risk taker. Get him in here and try and settle him down before he can see the field.
Great hands and great tackling ability, a combo rarely seen in DC.

He may be forced into action this week we have nobody else if Landry can't go.

Harris will probably be used on Teams, doubt if he'll play on D unless we experience something like on Sunday again.

Bean,

No problem I'm sure J-Reid will get around to it eventually.

It's funny the only story he has ever had first was wrong.

Posted by: Flounder21 | November 23, 2010 4:28 PM | Report abuse

Yeah i hope not though. I dont really like him as a safety. I guess we would go w/ Reed at strong, cause Macho def isn't a strong. Really I would prefer him in the nickle roll. PB has been playing better then earlier in the year but I still would like to see a change.
But if we are in a pinch Harris is a fairly versatile player might work out at safety, I like this pickup.

Boy i hated him at Tech though. Second most hated player only behind Marcus. Though it would take a monumental effort to jump Marcus on the dbag list...

Great video of the skins from the 40's

Also, Skins should consider doing what the Giants did and getting some top talent from the UFL. Grab DD Dorsey, dude is easily the best RB in the UFL, and is a legit screen threat. That would help the running game.

Please he was just waived by a pathetic team where he never played a down. We don't want him or need him why are you even bringing this lame a$$ up.

beep-beep went to Duke. They don't have a team so college football is lost him.

Actually Devin was active last week. Had a easy ball thrown his way and he dropped it. Where are the Shanny bashers now? Not one of the players he has cut, has succeded elsewhere.

Due to injuries, this team has taken some hits on special teams. DT can at least fill that role for the last few games. Not saying they rush to sign him, but in case of an emergency..break glass.

Everyone of our WRs could have gone down and they wouldn't bring him back.

Seems to me a few up here need to STFU about Shanahan's EGO being the reason he cut DT. DT just can't play, it's always been as simple as that.

London Fletcher is more deserving than anyone else on the team. This guy makes more tackles than most pro-bowlers and has for the past what..10-12 years? Give the guy his due. He squeaked in last year as an alternate - but he should have gone as a primary.

Posted by: Huntre | November 23, 2010 5:55 PM | Report abuse

I vote other - Silverback as an alternate. He'll go after the 4-5 players ahead of him pass on the game.

Posted by: coparker5 | November 23, 2010 6:33 PM | Report abuse

How dare you leave London Fletcher off the list! The D line stops nothing leaving it to him and Rocky to clean up the mess!

Posted by: fr3dmars | November 23, 2010 6:56 PM | Report abuse

London Fletcher...Sure would be nice if the buffoons who always post comments here would remember that comments for this particular article was for Pro Bowl votes...

other : no redskins players deserve to go to a pro bowl. sorry :/.

I agree, why is London in the dungeon? I vote for Santana, too!

Posted by: iubiquity | November 23, 2010 10:41 PM | Report abuse

No one on the Skins deserves to play in the Pro Bowl but heck I vote for Fat Albert for putting up with Shanie's BS
and demonstrating how to catch a few Zzzzz's during a play.

Shame we can't vote Fat Albert into the Pro Bowl just for fun and outrage by Colin Cowpie!
