Redskins coaches head for Senior Bowl with NFL Draft in mind

With most of Mike Shanahan's first staff in place, Redskins coaches this week will travel to Mobile, Ala., for the Senior Bowl.

Historically, the Senior Bowl has been among the key events each offseason leading to the April draft. In addition to providing an early opportunity for coaches and player-personnel officials to evaluate college seniors, the Senior Bowl also is a great place for coaches to become reacquainted with old friends, network and share opinions about everything from all draft-eligible players to upcoming free agents.

Before owner Daniel Snyder officially hired Shanahan earlier this month, a league source familiar with Shanahan's thinking said the coach planned to draft a young quarterback and "raise him." In their early mock drafts, several draft prognosticators have linked the Redskins, who hold the fourth overall pick, with University of Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, whose final college season was cut short because of injury.

Quarterback Jason Campbell had the best season of his career despite playing behind one of the NFL's least effective offensive lines. Only two quarterbacks were sacked more than Campbell, who set personal-best marks across the board, and the Redskins are expected to bring him back for at least one more season.

The Redskins surrendered their third pick in the upcoming draft to select defensive lineman Jeremy Jarmon in the supplemental draft, and gave their sixth pick to the Miami Dolphins as part of the Jason Taylor trade in 2008. With major holes along the offensive line and at running back, the Redskins could use as many picks as possible.

Rick Maese will be in Mobile this week. I'm not sure how much Rick will write, but if there is anything to be written, no one at the Senior Bowl will do it better than J Reid's guy. I'll probably just hang around Redskins Park this week doing what I often do, working the phones and taking orders from Cindy Boren and Barry Svrluga.

As for today's championship games, I like the Colts on their home field and the Vikings on the road. A Manning-Favre Super Bowl would be quite the spectacle, wouldn't it?

Hopefully, the new HC will get rid of all

the primadonnas soon i.e., CP26, LL30,

Albert and all those others who think "me,

myself, and I" before they think: team,

team, and team. And hopefully he will

teach JC17 to at least show some

intensity and earnestness when he gets on

the playing field.

The joker speaks.

Some of us will spend this great football day driving from Gainesville to South Florida and will miss the big games.

So we want Favre v. Manning and all the slurpy media attention that'll go with it.

A game where these two guys are battling will be like watching Superman fighting Batman in the glorious Florida sunshine.

So it'll e fitting that in the middle of such a game, some dudes will sing, "Who are you?"

We know Manning is Superman, what all his pedigree and bearing.

And because he's the darker, more complex dude, we want Batman-Favre to win one last one, then run off into the sunset of retirement and memories.

And when we see Superman-Manning's sad face, we'll ask, "Why so serious?"

"Didn't you know that for this generation of football fans, Favre and his his #4 memories are like kryptonite?"

Like the now not-filibuster-proof Senate, I have a limited agenda.

1. Draft Offensive Lineman using 1st and 2nd round picks.

2. Let the QB situation develop another year with current personnel.

3. Free Marko!

As for the football this weekend, I represent the minority opinion. I like the Jets and the Saints.

Cruising down the road yesterday listening to sports radio, and SI's Peter King was the guest. He was asked about the Jets chances, and the fact that Sanchez is a rookie who has had some very bad games.

King says, "Yeah, he's a rookie but it's not like he's Jason Campbell. He CAN make plays."

I was laughing so hard I nearly drove off the road.

Very interesting how King chose to use JC as an example, and not some other QB.

Nobody is saying he won't recover from that specific injury. That's not the point. The issue is that when he finally starting getting hit he got hurt. Then when he got hit again he got hurt again. That's the real issue. Is he going to get hurt again? It looks almost certain that he will.

But not unexpected. JC17 is average at best when his game is ON, and he's a proven choke artist with the game on the line. That's what King means about making plays. Sanchez steps up when it's his time to make a play. Campbell often throws INT's or fumbles with the game in the balance. Then the apologists blame his consistent failure on the O-line.

I may be the only one who remembers this, but King has a long history with JC. When the 'Skins traded up to get him, King said he believed that JC would prove to be one of the five best players in that draft. Then, just to have it both ways, he said that the Redskins gave up too much to get him. So, now that he's been proven wrong about "one of the five best" he can still say he's batting .500 given what Gibbs gave up to get him.

This 'pick Bradford' stuff is a lil misdirection. Samuels is gonna retire and that position has to be addressed. The Hawks(2 picks), Browns, 49er's (2 picks), Bills & Broncos are in the market for a QB. The Bronco's are in the same position we are in w/ JC, its just Orton had a better win/loss record.

I have to say I sleep better at night knowing that Shanny and Ally will be leading the player evaluation. I would hope they either draft a tackle with the 4th pick or trade down and get a second quality pick.

Bardford with the 4th??? It really appears as if Vinny is Kiper's mole. The one thing that has improved over the years is Kiper's hair style. His draft prognostications have gotten worse.

I hope Shanny's not too in love w/ this idea of growing a young QB. The Skins have a very high pick and they can't afford to miss. Bradford's coming off a shoulder injury and is he worthy of being picked that high? The Skins have so many needs every where that they can't be drafting by position. The old adage to draft the best player still holds, especially when there are multiple needs. Neither Shanny or Allen have reputations as personnel evaluators. Are they looking at bringing in a quality talent evaluator to fill that need, which might be their biggest need?

East-West Shrine Notes - Part 1

Pat Paschall/RB/North Dakota State: Paschall was the top small-school prospect on the field during the week and one of the best ball carriers. He's a smooth back with a gliding style, but also displays plenty of toughness when running inside. More than anything else Paschall proved all week he belonged on the field with players from bigger schools.

Freddie Barnes/WR/Bowling Green: Barnes caught everything thrown his way each day at practice. He impressed scouts with the ability to consistently separate from defensive backs and find the openings in the coverage. Barnes proved to scouts that his record-breaking numbers in college had more to do with his skills rather than the offensive system at Bowling Green.

Dennis Pitta/TE/BYU: Pitta showed why he's considered one of the best pass catching tight ends in April's draft. He displayed reliable hands while making some acrobatic receptions. Pitta is not known for his blocking yet did better than expected when asked to display his skill.

John Estes/C/Hawaii: Estes could well be the big winner of Shrine week. He played with terrific fundamentals and strength from the first day of practice. Estes had no problem handling bigger opponents on the line and was flawless blocking on the move. Estes, who has not yet received an invitation to February's combine, elevated his draft stock at least one round.

Rodger Saffold/T/Indiana: Saffold was another impressive lineman who really improved his draft stock. He blocked with great fundamentals, showed solid footwork in pass protection and was much stronger than people thought. He was impenetrable all week and solidified himself as a top 100 selection.

Kevin Haslam/T/Rutgers: Haslam was one of the biggest surprises of the week. He looked athletic, powerful and handled just about everyone he went up against. Haslam looks the part in his pads and will only get bigger and stronger. He could find himself in the middle rounds of the draft based on his performances during Shrine week.

Brandon Carter/G/Texas Tech: Carter was a monster from day one and manhandled anyone he went up against. His power was obvious, but Carter also blocked with good fundamentals, which surprised some. He worked hard and was nasty from start to finish.

East West Shrine Notes - Part 2

Jeffrey Fitzgerald/DE/Kansas State: Fitzgerald, who surprisingly has not yet received an invitation to next month's combine, was applauded by coaches throughout the week. He made a lot of athletic plays on the field and exploited a number of offensive tackles each day. Fitzgerald could easily land in the draft's top 100 selections.

Earl Mitchell/DT/Arizona: Mitchell had three solid days of practice and definitely elevated his draft stock. He's explosive, quick and built low to the ground, which he uses to his advantage. Mitchell also displayed power and pushed a number of larger opponents off the line, to the delight of scouts in attendance.

Nate Collins/DT/Virginia: Collins was one of the hardest workers of the week and played with a great motor every day. He's another solid athlete who displayed a lot of talent.

Torell Troup/DT/Central Florida: Troop had a home field advantage playing in Central Florida's backyard and he took advantage of it. He showed outstanding quickness and explosion every day, easily beating opponents off the snap then quickly changing direction to chase the action.

Jason Beauchamp/OLB/UNLV: Beauchamp looked strong and athletic and impressed with his ability to make plays all over the field. He was forceful against the run yet also fluid moving sideline-to-sideline in pass coverage. Beauchamp definitely built some momentum for himself during the week.

Alterraun Verner/CB/UCLA: Verner was the best looking defensive back of the week and looked very natural on the field. He regularly shut down opponents every day and displayed top ball skills. His 40 time at the combine will be critical, but many scouts already grade Verner as a top-60 selection based on his play this week.

I'm glad someone else agrees that JC17 is average. The Skins will take the QB this year because it's harder to find elite QB's than it is for LT's. Everyone knows that the OL cannot be fixed in one draft. That is why they will bring JC back...to get pummeled for one year. They will pick Bradford this year and a RT with second round pick and roll the dice with a FA LT or Levi Jones at LT. Next year's 1st round pick will be used on a LT.

Posted by: HPYTRKR1 | January 24, 2010 2:06 PM | Report abuse

The Redskins have too many pressing needs--most notably on the offensive line--to risk the #4 pick on a quarterback, particularly one coming off of serious injuries. Historically, quarterbacks taken high in the first round are more often misses than hits. I think that they can find a quarterback later in the draft that they can spend some time grooming, and JC is at least servicable in the meantime. Letting a young QB sit and watch and learn for a few years can and does work. Remember Trent Green? (By the way, I don't see Colt Brennan ever being the answer.) In an ideal world, the Skins would trade that #4 pick for a couple of high picks and look for offensive linemen that can anchor the team for years to come.

I disagree. Look what Parcells did in one offseason in Miami. With a combination of free agent signings and the draft he made a mediocre offensive line into a solid one. The offensive line can be fixed in one offseason, and I think you start by drafting a left tackle first.

If you look at the scores for the first 6 games, you would have thought they were competitive defensive games, but when you watch the all the first 6 games, it was pitiful. Granted a lot of it was the play calling, but JC has to take some of the responsibility for ineptness also. The Only game that looked like he maybe got it was the Saints game.

JC17 shows no leadership (Cooley and Portis were right), no intensity and doesn't make quick decisions. He led the league in passes thrown BEHIND the line of scrimmage. He choked in 2007 (with Samuels and Jansen healthy) losing four in a row that almost jeopardized the season before Collins salvaged it. He choked in 2008, finishing 2-6. He choked in 2009 vs. Lions and Chiefs with a decent OL. It's Campbell....not the OL. It's time for people to assign some blame to him. The idea that he would be great with a good offensive line is not true. No team has a perfect OL, so forget it. The QB must be able to make plays and Campbell cannot consistently. Bradford's already better than JC.

Griese was never the same after that injury. He still had zip on the ball, but wasn't as accurate. And as he got older he lost the zip too. When you start having shoulder separations, and dislocations it always means 99% of the time, tendon surgery. Bradford is damaged goods, skins need to stay away from this guy. Plus it makes no sense to draft a guy with a brittle shoulder when you have no way to protect him. Draft to build up the O-line.

When Mediocrity is your best selling point, you have problems.

Does he throw INTs? Not a lot, which is great.

Does he win games? Not a lot, which is BAD.

Does he lead his team from behind to win games? Not a lot, which is BAD.

Does he have great numbers in "garbage time"? Yes, which is *not* good.

How many times has he thrown for more than three touchdowns in a game? None. How many times has he thrown for three touchdowns in a game? Three times? Only three times?

Who throws Hail Mary passes out of bounds? Jason Campbell.

JC has 55 touchdown passes in 52 career games. Under two coaches (maybe three, if you count Saunders), he has 20 wins in 52 games. TWENTY.

I think it funny that people want to go OL with the 4th pick. We took CS with a top pick and what is our record over his years. The one thing this has not had is a great Qb. If there is any chance Sam B. is that Qb you take him. MS never used top pick on line men in Denver and always had GREAT lines, what he didn't have since Elway is that QB and he plans to fix that watch and see....

Posted by: pikedawg | January 24, 2010 3:09 PM | Report abuse

Teams must sellout to find their franchise quarterback. Top 5 picks should be reserved for playmakers that impact the passing game. Priority: QB, DE, LT and DT. QB trumps LT....ask the Rams and Cleveland who are still searching for the right QB despite high LT selections. Rams should have taken QB Mark Sanchez last year when they had the chance. The Seahawks too.

Is the jury still out on JC17??? Maybe not because after all we haven't seen him with a healthy O-line in front of him. Then again maybe taking a shot at Bradford with the 4th pick isn't a bad idea. I still feel the safer bet would be to trade down with either the 49ers or Falcons. Getting two first rounders would definitely speed up the rebuilding phase. Drafting an LT(Anthony Davis) and a FS(Earl Thomas) would fix to major problems from last season. In Rd. 2 get you Colt McCoy if you must. Address the major issue and Qb isn't the major issue for the Skins. After all If you drat Bradford who the hell is going to block for him. I mean look what happened to Stafford last season and look how shell shocked JC17 is now.

Posted by: cee_212002 | January 24, 2010 3:29 PM | Report abuse

I do kind of buy into it being easier to pick up LTs than franchise QBs, but my POV is Bradford seems too much or a gamble - injury question, never run a pro-style offense. I'd rather have a solid QB behind a stellar OL (Ryp?) than a franchise QB running for his life /on his back/stretcher. An improved line should also help the running game more than a rookie QB, before CP26 finally breaks down...

The idea of selecting Sam Bradford as the "next" quarterback, or the quarterback in waiting means, I guess that all those people who've wanted Colt Brennan to start (or at least compete for the starting position) will have called in vain.

Wasn't Colt Brennan supposed to be the next great quarterback? If so, why do you need to draft Sam Bradford?

Here's a look at explosive rushing plays:

Denver

20+/40+ 17/5 16/4 18/3 63 plays

Washington

plays 2005 2006 2007 total plays

20+/40+ 10/3 13/0 6/0 32 plays

From what I have seen so far, the attitude that Rex Ryan brings and his team buys into with this rookie QB that somehow learned his playbook in his first year appears to make the J E T S a player for some years to come.

From East-West Shrine. This guy is expected to be there early in the 3rd-4th round.

Top performer: Rodger Saffold, OT, Indiana

Saffold was not only the most agile pass blocker all week, he also showcased impressive bend, footwork and overall base strength when asked to anchor on contact. He looked natural sliding his feet, mirroring in space and using his quick hands to gain inside leverage and keep his side of the pocket clean. Plus, he displayed above-average range when asked to pull on the outside and exhibited some initial pop as an in-line run blocker. Saffold has definitely elevated his stock in my eyes and grades out as someone who has the ability to develop into a starting-caliber tackle.

What is with Colt and "lets play him because he had one out of two good 'pre-seasons'." As a OU fan, I like Bradford, but that injury is a concern. Plus, probably not related, but somewhat suspicious is that OU's Blake Griffin (NBA first pick) who went to the Clippers is now injured all year. That is like a bad omen if you believe in all that....

The playoff teams had good to great offensive lines. That is where it has to start. Maybe drafting a project QB in the latter rounds might be the direction to go. Maybe a FA QB could also be a good challenge for JC also.

The Skins need to have another starter. That means Campbell needs to go. He has had more than enough time to prove himself yet all he does year after year is lose. And while the OL is bad Campbell makes them look worse by not being able to read defenses and blitzes. But I also say don't draft Claussen or Bradford, as neither one is worth the 4th pick in the draft. Pick OT as first pick and look for a QB later. Maybe Pike (Cin)or McCoy (Tex)or Robinson (Ok St). Then give Colt Brennan a shot.. maybe he can be the QB of the future maybe not but at least we will know. As veteran backup either keep Collins or maybe get Pat Ramsey as he has played for Shanahan already another possibility David Carr. But Campbell has to go. He's not signed and certainly not worth the money he wants to stay. Also when asked he couldn't even bring himself to say he wants to be a Redskin QB next year. Time to cut him loose.

Jason Campbell was sacked 41 times, and constantly on the run from defenders. Yet he still threw for 3,600 yards, and I believe 21 TD'S, he's shown what he can do when given time. Give the man some protection on the O line before you throw him under a bus. Put Brees, Favre, Rivers, the Manning brothers behind this line, and lets see how bright they shine than. The Skins should use there 1st and 2nd picks on O lineman.

Couldn't agree more...and I don't think you have to worry too much either. What every poster on here has failed to recognize is that MS never inherited so poor a team as the Skins...which means...tada...he's never had a #4 pick in the draft before.

I think it's Tebow or Bradford for the Skins and if Campbell decides to sign, he'll very soon be the backup after he utterly fails in his first or second game under MS.
