NFL Draft: Cam Newton or Jake Locker?

By Washington Post editors

Rick Maese is in Mobile, Ala. for the Senior Bowl and caught up with Jake Locker to get an answer to the question the University of Washington quarterback has gotten for months: Does he regret his decision to stay in school?

Also this week, the Post Sports Live crew debated whether the Redskins would be better off drafting Locker or Auburn quarterback Cam Newton.

"Another player who would bolster many team's 3-4 base: Cal lineman Cameron Jordan. He measures only 6 feet 4 and 287 pounds and might not be as thick as some 3-4 defensive ends..."

Redskins INSIDER


Oh for crying out loud. He's just 13 pounds shy of 300, or about half of what Fat Albert used to sweat off at practice.

He's plenty big enought for a 3-4 end.

Yup.

Don't use a high draft pick on a QB whom you can't protect.

Posted by: freakzilla | January 27, 2011 2:12 PM | Report abuse

I don't know how you'd take either Newton or Locker in the top ten players. Both need at least a season and possibly two. Used to be that teams were reluctant to trade up into the top ten because of the salary burden, but maybe the upcoming labor situation alters that somewhat. If one of those cornerbacks is available, I could see a team like Baltimore wanting to move up. Same for NE for a pass rusher.

Problem is, the Skins aren't in substantially different shape than they were last year -- they still need help in almost every area. And that help is probably further down the scale.

Alan 4...

I'll accept your challenge! Joe Gibbs was team president (meaning he had final say on personnel decisions)

#1 The Redskins sent a 3rd dround pick to Denver for T. J. Duckett (Idiotic)

This was a mistake for a 1 year rental, no doubt.

#2 The Redskins gave a 3rd and a 5th round pick for Brandon Lloyd, PLUS tore up his contract for a new one!!!! (c'mon man)

I will hold Gibbs accountable for the draft picks, but I can't hold Gibbs accountable for the wasted money--I don't beleive he negotiated contracts.

#3 The Redskins made Adam Archuleta the highest paid safety in the HISTORY of the NFL.

Again, I don't hold Gibbs accountable for the money.

#4 The Redkins gave up a 4th round pick for 34 YEAR OLD GUARD Pete Kendall!!!

Kendall actually produced, and was our best OL for awhile. This was a good pickup.

#5 The Redskins traded UP to get Jason Campbell when NO ONE was going to pick him.

Conjecture. Show me proof no one else was going to pick him.


#6 The Redskins gave up two picks to move up to get Rocky McIntosh

McIntosh is a 2nd round pick who was excellent at time is the 4-3. In the 3-4, he's a goner.


Sure Alan, there were some hits under Gibbs, but no way Gibbs get a pass and Cerrato "The Dancing Bear" skates!

Posted by: rickyroge | January 27, 2011 1:57 PM


Of this list, I'll grant you that Duckett and BLloyd were definite mistakes that Gibbs owns.

Were they far reaching mistakes? And is it possible these were concessions to Snyder/Vinny? I'd argue Snyder/Vinny made a lot more devastating mistakes without Gibbs than with him.

I still think that if we pick any QB in this year's draft we should go with one of the guys projected for the 2nd or 3rd round, like TCU's Andy Dalton or Nevada's Colin Kaepernick. Use that #10 pick for a player who's really worth that pick, not for a QB who's been pushed up into the high ranks of the 2011 QB draft class because Andrew Luck is no longer an option.

I still think a great prospect is going to fall to us at 10. I doubt we take one of these QBs. I could really see an A.J Green or Marcell Dareus slipping. There's 9 spots in front of us.

All these non QBs have a chance to be picked before us.

#1 Patrick Peterson
#2 A. J. Green
#3 Marcell Dareus
#4 Nick Fairly
#5 Von Miller
#6 Robert Quinn
#7 Cameron Jordan
#8 Prince Amukamura
#9 Adrian Clayborne
#10 Nate Solder
#11 D'Quan Bowers

We're getting somebody really good this year.

sweetsweetlou

I'm curious as to how you feel Jarmon fits into it all.

I'm on record as deeming the Jarmon drafting a bad one as the time, we had already spent a pick on a de named Orakpo, had de's Wilson and Jackson in-house, and A Carter, too.

We needed that summer-time pick of a 3rd rounder for an offensive lineman in the 2010 draft (we could've taken T Cody-NT like the ravens did!!!)

With that being said, I'd say he needs a defined role: he can put on weight, and might have a home at right de-end backing up V Holiday.

He did look like he could play when he got in at the end of the season, as did RobJax.

To sweeten this deal, how about the best available Nose tackle in the second round?


Let's start by saying A Carriker is a great addition and P Daniels a goner.

Kedric Golstonis a 4-3 tackle and is kinda out of place in our defense.

1st, I'd say A Bryant is our starting NT.

But he's 29.

So drafting a kid to back him up makes sense long term.

The team has to make decisions on Kemo (did his recovery from an achilles injury hamper his play or is he done?), AH (will he be a redskin? If so, is he playing NT/T or De-end?), and the young'n Joe Joseph (is he a rookie that might grow into a player?)

The layers of questions about our unsettled interior defensive linemen situation is why that portion of the team has immediate needs, the offensive line notwithstanding.

So, yes, if J Powe, P Taylor or some other such good NT is there in the second round, take him....

....and answer some of the questions.

No thank you ma'am.
But if we suck big time enough the real deal Luck could be ours. with the rag tag bunch of do gooders were rollin with i think we might be in the running.

And maybe if no one else mentions Patrick Peterson he may slip to tenth. Maybe he could get arrested or do some stupid ish to drop his value before the draft...

========================================
Actually Ricky there are a contingent of ex-Redskins, Doc Walker, Brian Mitchell, Charles Mann, Darrel Green, John Riggins, and Joe Jacoby all have come out with pointed words concerning Coach Gibbs, true power at personnel decisions. There were numerous times when Gibbs wanted players but was overturned by Vinny and Snyder and there were times he did not want to give up a lot to get a player, even if it was a player he wanted.

Riggins wanted Gibbs to come out about the ordeal of having to deal with Synder and Vinny, and constantly get disrespected, after he retired but Gibbs wouldn't do it. And instead went on a public insulting campaign himself against Snyder. Calling him a "Dark Heart" There was a Monday Morning QB Sports Talk 980 broadcast I can recall where Doc Walker was absolutely pissed about the state of the team, and how Vinny and Snyder were disrespecting Gibbs, but would only stop short of saying so. The only people to not hold their tongue were Mitchell, Mann, and Jacoby. Gibbs was "Team President", but he did not have final say in personnel decisions towards the end of his tenure. Which contributed to him leaving, after still making the playoffs, and when the best player on the team was murdered.

I still think Jarmon was a great pick. All those guys Orakpo, Wilson, Carter, and Jackson are all right defensive ends in a 4-3. I believe the only left defensive ends we had on the roster were P Daniels and Reynaldo Wynn. Both of them were coming off of season ending injuries. Jarmon is going to need a little time to settle in but I think when he gets the weight back on he's going to be a good 3-4 defensive end.

Posted by: Alan4 |

Both of you are ignoring a critical point.


The BIG difference is Gibbs under Snyder's ownership was a coach and GM. He had final say as to acquisitions.

With only a finite number of hours in the day, Gibbs DEPENDED on input from Cerrato's office and the scouting department to make those decisions. Classic instance of Garbage in, Garbage out.

With Beathard as GM, Gibbs had that major responsibility lifted from his shoulders. He could focus his FULL TIME attentjon on coaching. Meanwhile, Beathard, unlike Vinny, was a personnel genius.

So with single responsibility of being GM: Beathard = Genius

With single responsibility as a head coach: Joe Gibbs = Genius

With solo responsibility as a GM: Vinny Cerrato - non-genius.

THATS why Gibbs skates and Cerrato trips over his own toe. Unless I missed it and Cerrato both was GM and head coach of the 'skins.

I don't think we'll ever really know on personnel decisions.

My best guess is that Vinny had a major part in all the decisions, overwhelmingly so in the college ones. I don't think you can be out of the league for over a decade and know the personnel in the colleges.

Gibbs, after all, was HC -- and so he's spending most of his time looking at NFL film.

I do think if Gibbs had wanted Vinny out, he could have made that happen. But I don't think he wanted to force him out.

Gibbs 2.0 was a mixed result.

More than anything else, the team he coached into the playoffs in his last year, that was a team the fans loved, the players respected and other teams feared. The only time that has happened since Gibbs 1.0 era ended -- nearly 20 years ago.

Well so far, he's had an injury year, and a DNP/play some year.

That's not good from a risky 3rd round, summertime pick.

A 3rd rounder should be a guy who's contributing on the regular, but, I'll grant the scheme change has made him an odd man out.

Perhaps there's a back up role as a 'swing DE' where he backs up Carriker/Holliday.

The might be the best role for him--that or ex-Washington Redskin.

Not a Redskins fan at all but I actually like BOTH QB's

Jake Locker is a more athletic version of Jay Cutler IMO, he is ALWAYS going to have accuracy issues and will make BAD PLAYS but he will also make some BIG PLAYS for you, Shannahan did have Cutler at Denver and Cutler played well under him

Cam Newton is a mix between Ben Roethlisberger and Josh Freeman, he is probably not ready to play right away but in the right system and on a team full of Veterans LIKE THE VIKINGS...just like Big Ben he could come in a MANAGE the Game and make plays with his feet and buy extra time in the pocket with his feet and his strength just like Big Ben

as for what the Redskins should do? Draft Von Miller or Akeem Ayers or Robert Quinn or Julio Jones, then take Christian Ponder in the 2nd Or 3rd Round and try to develop him, having two good Rush-LB's in that 3-4 Defense can help make your defense so dominating, just look at the Steelers with James Harrison and Lamarr Woodley on the outside, they help make up for the Steelers AVERAGE CB's

Teaming up someone like Von Miller with Orakpo would make that defense so much better INSTANTLY!

or maybe you can trade back into the first round and get Locker if he starts to fall, or Mallett if he falls

Any draft picks not spent on O-Line or D-Line this year are conterproductive. The QB, RB and WR's won't matter a bit if the O-line is not young healthy highly capable picks and quality back-ups. Many teams have proven that quality lines are required for long term NFL success. Too long have the Redskins suffered because of glam moves that led to long neglected lines.

Posted by: murrayh | January 28, 2011 12:09 AM | Report abuse

I will also add this. Cam Newton is not our guy. How many times did Cam get sacked during the regular season? Not too dang many. Now - in the playoff game against Oregon, he got sacked quite a few times, and looked about ready to fall apart in the 4th quarter (physically). He would be the next Patrick Ramsey here, because our O-line would be getting him sacked 3-4 times per game as it is....

FIRST OF ALL
1ST PICK--- JULIO JONES
2ND PICK--- CASEY MATTHEWS

Posted by: cedric01 | January 28, 2011 12:10 PM | Report abuse

Can the Redskins survive without taking a QB in round 1. Answer is yes. My take: if possible, get someone like Nate Solder or another successful Offensive lineman; make the O-line BETTER...NOW. Draft day can't come soon enough. Later picks, get a QB-if there's one worth taking, and fill some more holes/add depth on both sides. I know, hard to do having traded picks.

BTW, someone fill me in, what picks do we have for 2011 draft? Set-up a scenario based upon reality, available draft picks and (assume NFL negotiations get completed) free agency pick-ups. Choose players that actually will be worth putting to work on the team, hopefully ones that will make a positive impact this year. I'm not askin' too much, am I?
