Chris Samuels honored to be back at NFL draft -- in different role


He may have retired, but Chris Samuels is still representing the Redskins. Tonight, he'll relay the Redskins' first-round draft choice at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

He spoke about the honor and the day he was drafted with Rick Maese just a few minutes ago.

Mike Williams was the fourth overall pick in the 2002 draft out of the University of Texas. He never made an impact, suffered multiple injuries and was cut from Buffalo after the 2005 season. He weighed 400 pounds when he was picked up by the Washington Redskins in 2009, and is currently a fringe player on an offensive line considered to be one of the three worst in the NFL. "BMW" was drafted before Brian Westbrook, Albert Haynesworth and Ed Reed.

New Poll:

The rumor--spread by Jason La Canfora--that Washington Redskins are set to draft Eric Berry is a good idea.

a. no

b. hell naw

c. yes, if he's a corner

d. is he a left tackle?

e. same 'ol thing Vinny would do

f. yes, if he's a free safety

g. soooo, with no picks to round four, where do offensive linemen come in

h. if this happens, I'm ignoring the draft until the dust settles, and truth comes

Moe goes with 'h' as rumors and gossip are trafficked by folks who just want to stir up discontent.

Is it me or does C Samuels look like B Bulaga, the sun-tanned version?

Think we can trade 100 pounds of BMW to the Titans for their 5th round pick?

ALLEN PARK - If the Detroit Lions are really having a debate between taking a defensive tackle and an offensive tackle, here's how the numbers stack up from the last 10 years.

In the last decade, 10 defensive tackles have been chosen in the top 10 picks in the draft. Only two of those - Kevin Williams (ninth overall, 2003) and John Henderson (ninth, 2002) -- have gone to a Pro Bowl.

In the last 10 years, there have been 12 left tackles taken in the top 10 picks and half of them have been to the Pro Bowl. If you eliminate the rookies - the three players taken last year (Jason Smith, Andre Smith and Eugene Monroe) -- that's six of nine who went to the Pro Bowl.

In that group were also a couple of huge busts - Robert Gallery (second, 2004) and Mike Williams (fourth, 2002).

A left tackle has been selected in the top five in four straight years. Jason Smith was taken second last season and was hurt for part of the year. The other three - Jake Long (first, 2008), Joe Thomas (third, 2007) and D'Brickashaw Ferguson (fourth, 2006) - have all gone to the Pro Bowl.

It's been 17 years since a defensive tackle taken in the top five has made the Pro Bowl - Sean Gilbert (third, 1992). There have only been five defensive tackles taken in the top five since then

- Dan Wilkinson (first, 1994), Darrell Russell (second, 1997), Gerard Warren (third, 2001), Dewayne Robertson (fourth, 2003) and Glenn Dorsey (fifth, 2008).

OK Chris, now no matter who they tell you to pick, you just pick either Okung or Williams, got it?

my 10 year old kid just saw the wide angle photo of Chris Samuels here on RI and swears he is a cross between Lilo and Stitch.

I would have to agree after seeing the clipart below.... Disney owes Samuels some money...

A true class act. Knew our season was f*cked when he got injured and in my opinion we lost our best player. Hopefully Okung/Williams can do the same for this godforsaken team

Adam Schefter says Tebow goes in the mid 20's, 1st round today.
So much for my grassy Knoll NFL conspiracy theory..
Too bad, he could of filled alot of empty "blacked out" seats in Jacksonville..
+++++++++++++

How pis-sed will JAX fans be if Tebow is gone before JAX's 2nd round pick (42)? And there is no way Jags can use their #10 pick in the first round on him.

Damned if they do and dont.

You have to wonder if the NFL has unofficially asked a "favor" of the other teams to pass on Tebow until Jags get a shot in the 2nd round.

And maybe Tebow's agent knows he is not going to be touched in the 1st round for this reason and why he sent him home to Jacksonville.

Although the statement from the Agent that he went home to Jacksonville "to be with family" does sound better..than "The Fix is In". No one is going to touch him in the 1st Round so the Jags can select him in the 2nd.

SB Nation is well represented here at Radio City Music Hall and coming up with some rumors floating around.

This particular rumor is not surprising:

Hot rumor from Jason Brewer at BGN, but Rams officials here are talking about arrangements for Sam Bradford to fly to St. Louis and tour the Rams facility. So, unless it's a bunch of hot air, it seems Bradford is the #1 pick.

Shocked, right?

Bradford showed up on the red carpet moments ago and we fully expect to see him grace the stage at 7:30 PM EST.

I'll go with choice "g", with the caveat that it's the biggest cattle auction of the year...

...and that means some backroom wheelin' and dealin' before it's over.

Chris Samuels was a class act - he performed - didn't complain - and defended some really flea bite quarterbacks from getting blind-sided.

Chris was a TRUE REDSKIN.

He will represent us with the same dignity and confidence he gave us on the field.

I'm shocked.. One bounce off the Ram's hard artificial surface, Bradford and his shoulder will be sitting at home with a guaranteed 50 Mil Contract.

(NFL Conspiracy theory back in play)

From USA Today

The former Florida QB and his agent told ESPN they know what team will draft him.

Tebow, a former Heisman winner who must adapt his throwing motion and mechanics for the pro game, is seen by most analysts as a second-round prospect. But some, even some of USA TODAY's analysts, have suggested he could be selected in tonight's first round.

Tebow and agent Jimmy Sexton claim they are very confident they know what team will call him.

Sexton didn't give any hints, but told ESPN:

"I don't know if it's gonna shock the world because I always thought he was going to do well. But we pretty much know. We have a pretty good idea what's going to happen."

serious question from a humble cow... any tips on free online feeds for live draft coverage? even just audio would be fine. at home with the calves this evening (i.e., no bar) and we're off the grid for cable or satellite.
