Jordy Nelson

The Cincy Bengals could make a play for the WR in the next 8 picks or so, trying to move up, according to league sources. If not, KC has expressed a lot of interest in him, too, he's from K State, and they will give him a good luck at 35.

So 34 might end up being the spot for a WR. I'm hearing that there's a very good shot Merling gone by 31-32, so unless they Skins move back up might not be able to grab him at 34.

This pick will go right down to the wire as well.

DID WE GIVE UP PICKS TO ATL?????????????

So far, so good. Titans could have been a WR team there. If things keep going this way, we might have the same pick in the top of the 2nd as we would have had at 21. Somebody slap me. Could it be that Vinny and The Danny just did something good?????

Who cares who's first, like the skins sometimes it's best to be second, especially when it's 3 times :)

The blog got this wrong. What they reported would be good, but it's not what happened, and what happened seemed like another Skins bonehead move. Skins gave up their first, third and fifth for Atlanta's two seconds, fourth and seventh. Seems like we gave up too much to drop as far as we did.

Posted by: DP | April 26, 2008 5:54 PM | Report abuse

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/was Here are the remaining picks. We got 2 2nd rounders and a 4th, gave up the better of our 3rd rounder and a 5th rounder. Don't know how JLC could have messed up reporting this but he did.

Posted by: Anonymous | April 26, 2008 5:54 PM | Report abuse

Vinny and Danny are now too cheap to pay 1st round money to 2nd round prospects. Maybe they are getting smarter finally!?!

Posted by: Anonymous | April 26, 2008 5:55 PM | Report abuse

Come on JLC, you have to own up to this blunder at some point. Why not just correct it now?

Posted by: kreitmaster | April 26, 2008 5:55 PM | Report abuse

All we are gaining is a mid 2nd (48)...stop focusing on 3 2nd rounders, we already had one, and the other one (34) is a downgrade from what we coulda had at (21)

Posted by: sephtical | April 26, 2008 5:56 PM | Report abuse

Sometimes a so-so trade is a great trade, like when it saves salary cap space. No 1st round pick means lots of money saved.

Posted by: mtnskinsfan | April 26, 2008 5:56 PM | Report abuse

Considering what the Eagles got for their first pick, we got screwed and Vinny should be fired and Dan should sell the team!!!!! I understand they didn't value anyone there, but you cannot give up a 1, 3, 5 for a 2,2,4!!!!!!

Posted by: redryan400 | April 26, 2008 5:56 PM | Report abuse

here are our picks now, we don't have a 5th

Round 2, Pick 3 (34) (From Raiders through Falcons)

Round 2, Pick 20 (51)
Round 3, Pick 33 (96) (Compensatory selection)
Round 4, Pick 4 (103) (From Falcons)
Round 6, Pick 20 (186)
Round 7, Pick 21 (228)
Round 7, Pick 35 (242) (Compensatory selection)
Round 7, Pick 42 (249) (Compensatory selection)

Some of ya'll a f***ing idiots. Even if the Skins gave picks, they still would have 10 total picks and may still get the player they want. They have 3 picks in the 2nd round.

Go Skins!!! Good trade! Damn the naysayers!

if this d-bag mis-reported the trade he should be fired immediately.

what is the final trade? someone please have something with proof or something im so lost

I like the trade. Everyone always assumes there was something better out there, but I doubt it.

Posted by: BT` | April 26, 2008 5:57 PM | Report abuse

looks like we gave up our first and fifth to get two seconds and a fourth

Posted by: geo | April 26, 2008 5:57 PM | Report abuse

Oh, calm down everyone. Everything is fine.

I think it could be prudent to have the Skins move back into the first round for some picks next year (maybe a 2 and 3).

Posted by: TDawg | April 26, 2008 5:58 PM | Report abuse

i like the trade,we didn't really like anyone at 21 in the first ... we now can get merlin and possibly nelson, its a stretch but we options now

Posted by: geo | April 26, 2008 5:58 PM | Report abuse

I like it. 5 picks in the top 103. Think about it. Atl picks early in each round.

Posted by: Patrick | April 26, 2008 5:59 PM | Report abuse

do you people understand that the skins gave up more to drop down than the falcons gave up to move up? A first round pick is worth 2 2nds a lone... the 4th they gave us isn't worth the 3rd that we had to give and the 5th we gave up? really there is no reason for it... this is a terrible trade...actually terrible embarrassing... especially since the eagles housed whoever they traded with... terrible... im slowly losing faith in the skins and year after year its getting worse..

it's not about the trade - it's about JLC not being able to report it correctly.

shame on him.

From KFFL:

Falcons | Team gave up two second-round picks to move up
Sat, 26 Apr 2008 14:50:53 -0700

John Murphy, of Yahoo! Sports, reports the Atlanta Falcons traded two second-round picks (34th and 48th overall) and a fourth-round pick (103rd overall) to the Washington Redskins for their first-round pick (21st overall), third-round pick (84th overall) and fifth-round pick (154th overall).

Posted by: skinfanman | April 26, 2008 6:00 PM | Report abuse

I can see why JLC would assume that we got three picks for one, instead of three picks for three picks. This trade looks bad based on what Philly got for its pick. But it doesn't look like there were any players on the board that the Redskins really wanted, or anyone else for that matter, in the 21st spot. Still, we should at least have traded the comp third instead of our own third. Now our third is basically in the fourth round.

Posted by: Skeptical | April 26, 2008 6:01 PM | Report abuse

That is correct. We gave up our first and third for two seconds and a fifth. While I like the concept, seems to me the Skins blew it again. Gave up too much. What else is new?

Posted by: DP | April 26, 2008 6:01 PM | Report abuse

Don't get hung up on the number of the round. Three picks into the second and fourth rounds are completely different than picks later.

Because all they do Larry is whine and cry and b itch about every single move they make...most of them can't evebn throw a football more or less understand or make the choices the right way and thats why they are at home on this blog and not in the draft war room!

Posted by: Leevi98 | April 26, 2008 6:03 PM | Report abuse

if we can make these 3 second rounders work then we can certainly still have a good draft. But the trade itself wasn't anything great considering we gave up 3 picks.

Breakdown from the draft pick chart:

What we gave up:

21 = 800
84 = 170
154 = 29.8

Total 999.8

What we got:

34 = 560
48 = 420
103 = 88

Total 1068

So, it's pretty much even but we came out on top. I take back what I said and hopefully things fall our way.

Posted by: [cc] | April 26, 2008 6:05 PM | Report abuse

Ok guys - here is the RIGHT way to look at this:

The previous 9 picks provided a total value of 1311 when you combine all the picks and the position they were ordered in.

Now, the Redskins "draft value" is MUCH better! They score at 1237!

This means the mean value of their picks after the trade is significantly better.

Actually this was a good trade according to the draft value chart:

Falcons Trade:
#34, #48, and #103 == 560 + 420 + 88 = 1068

Redskins Trade :
#21st, #84, and #154 == 800 + 170 + 30.8 = 1000.8

The player grade value is all in the 2nd round this year, so the Skins should be able to draft quality draft picks. My guess is a DE, WR, and G/T.

Posted by: Siris | April 26, 2008 6:20 PM | Report abuse

I happened to read the latest ESPN magazine which basically says that the former system of valuing picks is INSANE. It came from Jimmy Johnson btw - go figure. They came up with a new system. Their weightings rightly place more value on mid round picks. So how's it all shake out? In terms of point value for pick the Redskins get 3890 points. The Redskins give up 3809 points. All in all it's a "good" deal - not a great deal if you're going to slap generic values on the trade. That said, what makes me MOST happy is that the Skins did NOT do something totally stupid with the #1 pick. We didn't reach for a WR. We didn't reach for Merling. Not reaching I think adds value to the trade frankly. There just wasn't a great value sitting there at #21 - we could afford to trade down and I'm very HAPPY about this.
