Mock drafts reflect uncertainty over Redskins' plans at No. 4

Time to check the mock drafts and to, well, let you do some serious mocking.

Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News has the Redskins taking Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen with the No. 4 pick.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King thinks the Redskins will take Oklahoma's Trent Williams with the No. 4 pick.

Mark Maske is sticking with an offensive lineman at No. 4: Oklahoma State's Russell Okung.

Dan Steinberg of the D.C. Sports Bogashi relates a discussion between Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay. Yep, they think a QB is still a possibility at No. 4.

Technically, it isn't a mock draft, but Vinny Cerrato has the Redskins taking Okung.

I don't see that as a sucker punch. Seemed more like the guy asked to hit and Blount obliged.

Mike Mayock-
"If you need a quarterback and believe there's a franchise quarterback on the board when you draft, you have to take him, because, in my opinion, you can't win a Super Bowl in the NFL without one of those guys."

where the F is McNabbs' extension, this is highly unusual (see every other trade for marquis player)

worried, Haynesworth smokescreen

You really don't pay attention to anything do you? For the hundreth time, per the CBA, a player can't get an extention until a year has passed since his last contract negotiation. Please understand this and stop asking the same question over and over again.

Doesn't Rick Gosselin have the most accurate mock draft of all mock drafts over the last few year? Interesting that he's sticking with Clausen.

Big Ben to the Raiders? I think it's a good look.

Raiders enter the Big Ben picture
Posted by Mike Florio on April 21, 2010 3:36 PM ET

Not long ago, there was a belief that the Steelers hadn't ruled out a trade of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in order to scare him regarding the possibility of being traded to Oakland.

Now, he may have good reason to be afraid.

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the Steelers have been in contact with the Raiders regarding a possible trade, and that Oakland "[m]ight be [the] only real option."

The Steelers apparently want a top-ten pick for Roethlisberger. If the Raiders won't send the eighth overall selection to Pittsburgh, the next question becomes whether the Steelers would begin to consider taking pick 11, 12, or 13.

The 49ers hold the 13th pick, and Roethlisberger grew up rooting for the team.

One thing we know form this post now is that we won't be taking Okung. No more of my moves..

"....Dallas hasn’t really made any moves yet this year have they?"


I hate to give props to the enemy, but Dallas actually might be ready to make a Super Bowl run.

The haven't changed much as they haven't much to change.

They only have to draft a tackle and depth players.

In the NFC East, you have to see the iggles as weaken, the jints confused, the skins, an unknown.

Dallas will be preseason favs to win the East with reason.

Now, are they ready to compete with Minn and Nawlins?

That's the only about the teaam there is.

Bradford is a possibility. Neither Bradford or McNabb has signed anything. Bradford at $50 M might be a little rich for the Rams who are in a bottom feeder market but do need a QB. So the Skins could trade McNabb and their 1st to StL for Bradford. It would seem a little weird after the Skins welcomed McNabb with open arms but Shanahan could always say that at the time they got McNabb they didn't think a deal like this was possible and deals like this only come around once in a blue moon so they had to do it. Heh, heh.

We take Trent Williams. Kyle Shannahan likes quick Offensive Tackles. There will be surprises in the first four rounds, especially if Bradford doesn't go #1 and Detroit takes Okung.

I am picturing that we trade down, pick up Williams and another pick in the second round.

I am curious how a certain former Executive Vice President of Football Operations has any respect in the world of sports reporting to even get a chance to espouse his thoughts on talent evaluation as it relates to team needs in American Football.

I saw the same thing. I'm not saying Blount was right to hit the guy. And his crazy routine afterward wasn't anything to be proud of either. But if you're going to jump in a guy's face and taunt him after a loss, be prepared to duck. BTW, skinshaveaGM seems to have misspelled my screen name, along with every other word in his post.

Can't we have another update on the Haynesworth situtation? I'm sure there's a lot going on that you haven't told us about yet.

Posted by: League-Source

Even I have to admit I'm getting a bad case of Deja Vu all over again regarding Haynesworth.

WaPo should have a stringer in his home town go down to the dock and see if he's installed those new screws on his boat.

Oh well, it's almost Thursday and then the fit hits the Shanahan.

"Technically, Vinny Cerrato made a mockery of the Skins' drafts."



If a draft is judged 3 years later, it appears the Class of '08 is the group that's been the team's undoing.

It was ten picks where we didn't pick a winner.

And for what's left of that group--Rhinehart, Davis, Thomas, Kelly--the future is this season.

They either get it done this Fall or they are goners, plain and simple.

Since Vinny's not making this pick, I wholeheartedly endorse whoever Shanallenahan pick. Unless it's not a left tackle. Then I wholeheartedly disendorse [unendorse? irredsorse?] it.

I know this is a sports blog but there are a few posters who occasionally think non-sports thoughts. For you few I have the following insight:

hit to Ben R's public image = hit to Goldman Sachs' public image

The similarities are many. The Steelers are desperately trying to save their image by offloading the dude. GS is desperately trying to hold on to its customers by downplaying the details of its SEC fraud accusation. Even though there were sordid details galore, Ben R's case apparently did not reach the level of illegality. GS is accused of fraud but the case against them looks weak even though the details in the SEC accusation are every bit as sordid as the Ben R case. GS was trading derivatives and those markets are as lawless as was the Wild West of yesteryear.

All this trade Roethlisberger talk is lip service for PR's sake. If they were serious, they wouldn't be asking for a top ten pick for a guy who is slated to miss, at minimum, a quarter of the season. You can tell when they're serious. They took a 5th rounder for their SB MVP.

Hey, nobody is being forced to trade or hold derivatives. Anybody who does, does so at their own peril. There are always a few who would stick their head inside the jaws of a lion just to see what would happen.

Let's say I come up to you outta nowhere while you're having a bad day...

And I come up, slap you on the shoulder and say loudly in your face, "F U, you punk beatch!"

Then, as you turn to punch me in my face, I look the other way... like something to my left is more important than your fist heading for my face.

Hout is a moron. Blount lost his cool. Sometimes a sucker punch, if you wanna call it that, teaches a punk a nice lesson.

I bet the next time Hout's annoying as wants to come up and piss somebody off, he has the sense to see how they're gonna take it.

Hout hit him first, by the way. A blow to the shoulder.

I WISH somebody would do that to me. And then turn the other cheek? at the last minute?

PLEASE! I'd go the the uppercut, really. Hout is a punk like half the keyboard stroking losers on here.

Go Caps!

And shove your crybaby nonsense up your frak holes, ladies!

League-Source is actually the first guy to introduced herpes to the ranks of NFL players by bending over and getting passed around by in the showers after games. Kind of an NFL "groupie" as it were... only, without the team allegiance. Dallas, Philly, D.C., whatever. If there were big, strong athletes showering, League-Source was there... in the locker room... ready to please... and boy could he.

Little did the players know, however, League-Source was "carryin."

That's how he got the name League-Source, by the way.

Interesting tidbit. I bet many of you did not know that.

Go frak yourselves.
