Ike Hilliard interviews for Redskins staff vacancy

Former NFL receiver Ike Hilliard interviewed for the Washington Redskins' vacant wide receivers' coaching job this week in Mobile, Ala.

Hilliard, who played for the Giants and Bucs from 1997-2008, is still technically an active player, but he's expected to retire officially soon to enter the coaching ranks. Last year he coached receivers for the UFL's Florida team under Jim Haslett, the Redskins' new defensive coordinator.

"I think at the end of the day, I have a lot to offer guys," Hilliard said today as teams practiced at the Senior Bowl. "I'll command respect once I get in the room. I'll be able to transfer a lot of my knowledge hopefully over to them."

Hilliard said he also interviewed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today and has had discussions with a couple of colleges.

Hilliard has strong ties to Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan from their time at Tampa Bay. Shanahan was a quality control assistant there and worked closely with Bucs' receivers.

Hilliard spent 11 of his 12 seasons working in West Coast offenses. He finished his 12-year playing career with 6,397 yards on 546 receptions.

If the Rams take Claus as xpected then most if not all of the bottom dwellers will have QBs:

StL - Claus
TB - Free
Det - Staff
KC - Cass
Oak - Russ

That leaves Cleve who might end up with Brad. Point is, the Skins would have good QB selection prospects in the 2011 draft, like mebbe Barkley from SC, with all the bottom dwellers staffed up in the QB dept, so they can load up on other needs like OL and RB in the 2010 draft, especially if neither Claus nor Brad is that appealing to them.

Hello, Mr. Greg.
I must say that New Englanders, on average, seem to be less stupid than Americans from other parts of the country.

You also have a very good football team in the Patriots. Why are you cheering for the Redskins?

Rotfrau..
As a New Englander..thanks.. good to be considered "less stupid".... (I live in MA, 1 hour north of Boston). Be careful if you visit, we drive like our nickname indicates.. "Mass-holes".

Ref the Pats.. its easier to be a fan of the players.. ie. Welker.. But hard to accept the arrogance of Belichick.. Case in point.. . Recall his running up the score on Gibbs a few years ago.. Belichick's justification??... Because Gibbs beat him so badly, 15 years prior..when Belichick was HC in Cleveland.

Gibbs didnt even run up the score back then.. .. but thats the way Belichick thinks..

Stock Down
Taylor Mays, S, USC
The most impressive physical specimen on the field has underwhelmed scouts with his play this week. Mays has struggled staying with receivers in drills, and his outstanding measurables haven’t translated into smooth or fluid movements in coverage. While he has shown up occasionally as a hitter against the run, Mays' inability to get around the ball consistently has drawn red flags from scouts expecting to see a "can’t miss" talent at the safety position.

Any morons who didn't get enough evidence as USC's defense was consistently shredded this season still think this guys is ST21 re-incarnate?

One player who didn't impress me that much today was UMass offensive lineman Vladimir Ducasse. He didn't look like the most fluid athlete and he struggled with his lateral movement in 1v1's. Tyson Alualu stunned him with a rip move then later got under his pads on a bull a little too much for my liking. The scouts and coaches want to see how the small-school guys step up to the big competition and Ducasse isn't living up to the hype at the moment after a great weigh-in.

Idaho's Mike Iupati was very physical in 11v11's, but in 1v1's he was simply on the ground too much for my liking. He'll overextend and play top heavy, but the more I think about it, the more I'm convinced there's no way the Cowboys pass up on him in the first round. He's a prototypical guard for their system. Iupati manhandled Purdue defensive tackle Mike Neal a couple times and made it look easy - and Neal is an impressive specimen.

LSU tackle Ciron Black is really struggling as he did in his senior year. He's a late-round value because he's somewhat out of shape, and seems to lack some coordination and athleticism. He overextends and lacks quick feet. I'm struggling to find things to like about him.

A guy who was ferocious in run blocking today was Ole Miss' John Jerry and you simply didn't want to get in his way. He struggled when asked to be more mobile, but teams that love big, powerful offensive linemen will likely consider him in the mid rounds.

West Virginia tackle Selvish Capers struggled in 1v1's today. He lacks instincts and George Selvie destroyed him off the edge with his speed.

Im part of the draft Okung camp and am of the thinking that great teams are built from the line out. We obviously need a tackle and lots of you are campaigning for Iupati from Idaho. He may be great but why not go for someone we have all seen perform. Maurkice Pouncey from Florida is 6'5/320 and can move. I dont know where he is projected to go, but I think he would be a good addition to the line

1/27/10: As has been the case all year, Taylor Mays is struggling in coverage. Mike Mayock is even talking about Mays having to play linebacker. See what can happen when you're a top-10 prospect and decide to go back to school for another season?

1/14/10: Taylor Mays lost a lot of money by going back to USC. Mays has been exposed as a Roy Williams-type safety who struggles in coverage. He'll likely fall to Round 2. Remember, if he had declared for the 2009 NFL Draft, Al Davis would have selected him at No. 7 overall

LeFevour I'm willing to watch and check out during the Senior Bowl. I know nothing about the kid.

I know about Holliday, but as he might be a nice 5th receiver as well as special teamer, I'd go with him as well.

And I caught a couple of Iowa games and agree about Angerer.

Plus, there should be a ton of fine prospects in undrafted guys as many will see the NFL labor issues as a reason to leave school early.

(And I don't get why they can't try out for an NFL team, and return to school with their scholarships intact if a college coach is so free to move.)

Let's see what happens.

Wednesday Senior Bowl Quarterbacks-South
This story originally published on ScoutNFLNetwork.com

By Adam Caplan
Senior NFL Reporter
Posted Jan 27, 2010


| More

The practice sessions continued on Wednesday afternoon with the South quarterbacks. Did Tim Tebow improve? Did Jarrett Brown continue to shine?

Here's a breakdown of the three quarterbacks from the South team after viewing Wednesday's practice:


Tim Tebow/Florida

This was clearly his worst performance during the three days of practice.

Tebow's accuracy was way off. He just couldn't settle down at any point during the practice session. He even struggled with shorter passes with no one covering the receiver.

Again, it took Tebow too long to throw the ball. His elongated release made it easier for oncoming pass rushers to get off the ball and to the backfield.

For whatever reason, he seemed to be out of sorts during most of the practice session. He just couldn't find any rhythm.

Unfortunately for Tebow, Wednesday's practice was the one time where he had to make a strong impression on scouts, and he wasn't able to do so. Wednesday's practice was the only one where they practiced in pads. Thursday's will likely be in shorts.

Zac Robinson/Oklahoma St.

This was not a good throwing for the right handed signal caller.

Robinson's accuracy was an issue again. He continued to throw tentatively, which has been an issue for him all week.

Robinson just doesn't look like a comfortable quarterback. He performed with an apparent lack of confidence.

He did make a few nice throws toward the end of the practice session, but it's unlikely those throws will sway how personnel evaluators will look at his performance.

Jarrett Brown/West Virginia

Once again, Brown had a terrific session on Wednesday. He clearly has been the South team's best quarterback through the first three practices.

Brown continued to throw with good accuracy. He puts the ball away from the defender and into his intended receivers' hands.

You have to like how he's not concerned with bodies around him. Nothing seems to distract him and he gets the ball off quickly enough.

He also throws with good field vision--meaning he's able to scan the field to find open receivers. He rarely made a mistake through today's practice.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/01/27/keenan-mccardell-will-join-redskins-staff/

We noted yesterday that former NFL wide receiver Keenan McCardell was interested in joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' coaching staff. Today McCardell has a coaching job. But not with the Bucs.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Washington will hire McCardell as its wide receivers coach.

McCardell was a coaching intern last summer with the New York Giants, but he has never been on a coaching staff. He also has never played for Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, but Shanahan apparently thinks McCardell's wealth of NFL experience makes him a good fit for the job.

Although most fans likely don't remember it, McCardell both began and ended his NFL career with the Redskins. He was drafted by the Redskins in 1991, and his final season in the NFL was with the Redskins, in 2007.

McCardell also played for the Browns, Jaguars, Buccaneers and Chargers, and he spent training camp in 2007 with the Houston Texans, where he likely made a good impression on Kyle Shanahan, who was then the Texans' quarterbacks coach and is now the Redskins' offensive coordinator.

Moe - I know you have a thing for Iupati as a possible LT, but I think most of the buzz on him has him being projected as more likely to kick out to RT - thus, answering your two questions, Okung plays LT and Iupati plays RT. That would make a nice set of bookends!

If I were the Skins GM and both were available I would take Campbell over Okung in a heartbeat as long as there is nothing to be concerned about from the injury perspective. His stats from the combine should impress - an OT with sub 5:00 speed in the 40. The dude is an animal.

And 3 months before the draft, well before the combine you guys know much more than Shanny/Allen, and the people who get paid to evaluate talent. Obviously this is a weak class there isn't a single franchise QB in it, and Ponder, Mallet, Devlin, and Locker are obviously better than anyone this year a year before they are eligible and a year before they could get hurt or suck in another college season, Bradford and Jevin Snead don't think its possible to hurt your draft status and expose your weaknesses by returning to college. The only option is to go your route and draft a tackle at #4.

Or maybe we could just say there are a lot of options. Shanny's not an idiot and if he drafts a QB at 4 you can be sure he will upgrade the oline as well through other picks, FAs, or trades. That your opinions are just as valid as anybody else's but stop pretending like you have some source of superior knowledge that makes your idea anymore likely than anybody else's.

I think you should go to Shannyinsider.com and leave us alone. This is redskinsinsider. It's a place for redskins fans to post their opinions. If all you care about is what Jesus H. Shanahan thinks then you should go to him my son.

I'm happy either way he goes, and enjoy the different scenario talk. What gets really old is having to continuously read you and pabrian thinking there is only one possibility (because it happens to be what you want to happen) and your pretending your idea is the only and obvious way to go.

I would love to know the following:

- Of all the sacks and hits JC took...how many of them were due to him holding the ball too long...and how many were due to just poor blocking?

If I'm Shanahan...and I'm not...I would look at every play this season to answer just that.


Now...back to ya'll's mock draft jibba jabba!

Don't make much difference what the receiving corps does or looks like, at least so long as the Redskins have such a Clueless Dumbsh_t (JC17) taking the snaps. The fool is a pathological loser -- and his failure to execute is contagious.

We have to read your lame crap everyday too. You don't think we get tired of hearing about Shanahan this and Shanahan that? How come you never complain about Vic1? He comes on here at least once a day and tells us that JC sucks balls and kills babies. Maybe we are tired of hearing moe talk about Iupati? You only target us because you disagree with us. It's annoying.

Just for the record zjfr2 we've already had this argument at least 3 times so I'm sure someone is getting sick of both of us having the same argument everyday.

Posted by: PAskinsfan17 | January 27, 2010 7:48 PM | Report abuse

The JC argument is so tired. He's taken more hits to the chest and head than Jenna Jameson. Bradford wouldn’t make it through the preseason and Clausen is going #1 overall.

JC can take a punch better than Tito Ortiz, but he's not the answer.

No one would be successful behind this OL, draft OL and play JC/FA pick up/Colt and draft a QB with our 1st or 2nd next year.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Washington will hire McCardell as its wide receivers coach.

McCardell was a coaching intern last summer with the New York Giants, but he has never been on a coaching staff. He also has never played for Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, but Shanahan apparently thinks McCardell's wealth of NFL experience makes him a good fit for the job.

Well you may not be Shanahan, but you're advocating for what he said he would do in his introductory press conference...

look at every play in JC's career.

this review process will be long and painful.

and JC will not survive the ordeal with his formerly uncontested position as #1 QB on the depth chart

that is, if he's a Redskin at all.

and he probably shouldn't be

for his sake, and ours.

"...Okung plays LT and Iupati plays RT. That would make a nice set of bookends!"


Bro', I wasn't even thinking about this, but does sound like a plan.

But how to get in the position to get both is the issue.

Iupati will move up the board into the 1st round: the skins miss out on him.

But with a high pick in round 2, some other capable player will be there for the taking.

Moe reviews the speech Obama sent him to correct prior to giving it later tonite:

Opening Line:

"F!ck y'all bamas."

To Bill Clinton:

"Waddaup my jigga!"

To Wall Street:

""B!tch betta have my money!"

Best reasoned point:

"So I get 1 year to straighten up the 8 year mess some other guy made. I guess a brother becomes president and is still gets treated like the janitor."

A special word to Haiti:

"It's sad that those of you who've lived so long with nothing now, after some bad shakes, have even less."

Confronting the GOP:

"Y'all want me to fail? Well, I didn't fail when I was up in your sister's guts, so why would I now?"

To the world:

"I am proud to be an American. And I support making sure your ignorant bomb making azzes can't get on a plane to come here."

To Rush Limbaugh, FOX News, and Glenn Beck:

"I don't hate white people, but if you all keep this sh!t you call news on the tv, I just might learn to."

To his wife:

"Hey, girl, me and Tiger Woods goin' to Vegas. Alone, ya' heard me?"

His chronic break: (INSERT smoke cloud)

"Sorry, I had to get my smoke on."

"I've taken more hits than Jason Campbell. And with this white house bong, I'm gonna get a few more."

"God bless America, and goodnite."

What about Pike as a 4th round pick for a year or two of development behind soup? I for one would be down for C. McCoy around the same place in the draft if he is still there.

As far as potential FA to bring in:
1) K. Dansby
2) C. Pitts
3) Wilfork (esp. if we make a transfer to 3-4 defense)
4) And maybe see if there is a starting RT.

As far as draft:
1)Okung
2)Lupati (if not there, E. Norwood to stack LB corp.)
4)C. McCoy
5)E. Olson
7)T. Holliday

Not that it matters much for coaching, but I never though much of Hilliard as a WR.

When the Skins signed McCardell during Gibs 2.0, I was among those wondering why. But he was terrific and reminded me that a WR with modest talent and the right approach can accomplish a lot. If he can teach the things he learned along the way to DT11 and MK12, he'll be an excellent hire. Of course, if he can't teach ...

==================================
Most of the 2010 draft player talent and quality is going to be better than 2011.. If you're a non-senior with any NFL possibility you're got Agents telling you to enter the 2010 draft since the 2011 season is in jeopardy.... Thus 54 underclassmen have already declared this year.
Logic would then say trade away the 1st round 4th pick to acquire slightly lower high level multiple picks.

YOu could possibly pick up some of these junior blue chips in the early 2nd round that may of been in the 1st round in 2011.

Anyone in a nursing home, online here, that can remember what Bethard did... Was it 1980 or 81 when he traded down in the Draft for 2 1sts and got May and Grimm.?? Cornerstones for the Skins 1980's and early 1990's OLine dynasty.

Keenan was a 12th rd pick in 1991 and all he became was a top 15 catch guy of all-time. He wasn't the most gifted WR but because of work ethic, precise route running, and heart he lasted 16 years. Regardless of experience he should be an upgrade over Stan Hixon.

People question tenure and success (Shanny) and then question talent and lack of tenure (McCardell). Not you Zeke, others...

Skins should have had John Jefferson work with the wr's while he was in D.C. Hopefully McKardell can start getting production from Marko, Devin and Malcolm and maybe Mr. Brandon Marshall.
