On final day of NFL draft, Redskins are back in action


Good morning, on Day 3 of the NFL Draft. Finally, some picks for the Redskins. What positions would you like to see address: QB, OL, WR, the secondary?

Just to remind you: the Redskins have picks 103 (fourth round), 163 (fifth round), 208 (seventh round).

And now, the Rams are on the clock.

Maybe a NT or OLB? If Bruce Campbell is legit, I would look at him also.

WHAT AN UNDERWHELMING DRAFT BY THE REDSKINS! THEY'LL HAVE NO FUTURE IF THEY KEEP THIS UP!

If Shanahan really like one of the QB's, do you think he takes him? It would certainly kill any remaining leverage in JC trade discussions; if there is any.

Myron Rolle could be our Tebow.

Dude, they don't have any picks. What do you expect? Let's be patient; still a lot of talent on the board.

I like our draft so far...

1st - T.Williams
2nd - D. McNabb
3rd - J. Jarmon

At worst we dont have a 3rd for next year. Maybe we get a 5th for Soupy.

Take B. Campbell in the 4th
Take J. Dwyer in the 5th
Take D. D.LeFevour in the 5th

Bruce Campbell. That would give the Skins two bookend tackles who both run a 4.8 40. The things that the Shanahan offense could do with that sort of athleticism would be breathtaking.

and the rich get richer.. Philly with 4 picks in the 4th round of a deep Draft which is the equivalent to 3rd round talent of past drafts. Only redeeming factoid.. a little less than half of all NFL draft picks succeed, according to PFW.

Who the hell is Perry Riley? I guess the film really does expose Bruce Campbell.

Posted by: dcwun | April 24, 2010 10:25 AM | Report abuse

Riley it is... I guess help for LB in the 3-4. anyone know anything about this guy?

Posted by: moodlymoodlymoo | April 24, 2010 10:26 AM | Report abuse

hmmm? never heard of dude. 8th most tackles in SEC is kinda legit

Posted by: follybeach | April 24, 2010 10:26 AM | Report abuse

Stupid pick in 4th round. Should have taken Bruce Campbell and establish bookends OT's. Why does this team envision Heyer or Hicks at RT? Idiots!!

Riley has been a productive linebacker for LSU over the past two seasons. He has adequate size and athleticism for the position with better straight-line speed than change-of-direction and burst in space. Leverages the ball well with good run fits inside-out to the pile. He is a solid open-field tackler, keeping proper body positioning as well as wrapping up on contact. He has a feel for reading route progressions but lacks the agility and quickness to be effective in man coverage. Riley is a good football player with the size, strength and athleticism to develop at the next level, but he likely will only contribute on special teams in his rookie season.

Again no OL
This guy Riley better be the real deal, seeing we did not go OL

Mel Kiper thought the Tar Heel NT was a very good value pick still on the board, but we didn't take him either

Anyone know if Riley is good?

We drafted like 10 minutes ago, how was RI not been updated? Do they really have that much to do today?

Posted by: ChampKind | April 24, 2010 10:32 AM | Report abuse

thanks LS & gurich... sounds ok, guess no FS or OT available that looked more attractive. let's hope free agency takes care of that.

Posted by: moodlymoodlymoo | April 24, 2010 10:34 AM | Report abuse

Riley seems to be similar to the two LBs drafted last year, Glenn and Henson.

And no QB today please unless they are clearly better than Colt. No more wasted picks on a Jordan Palmer type.

Posted by: dcwun | April 24, 2010 10:35 AM | Report abuse

Solid pick IMO. ST and a developmental type. SportingNews has him as potential ILB in a year or two in an attacking 3-4 defense like the Chargers. So he could look to project as a back up on the outside and inside.

on the nfl network Jlac asked if B Campbell should be the pick for the skins and the guys said only if your moving trent to RT because Bruce doesn't drive block well enough to play RT in a zone block scheme

When you trade away all your picks for over-the-hill players (Jason Taylor, Donovan McNabb) -- then draft day sucks. Maybe Shanahan can talk Elway out of retirement too. And why haven't they traded Campbell for a pick yet? Not at all pleased with the effort so far.

Posted by: hrt22 | April 24, 2010 10:53 AM | Report abuse

Jonathan Dwyer is still falling... if he is still there at 163 the Skin's need to grab him. The backfield as of now needs someone with some youth, and he would not be nearly the developmental project a late rounder or undrafted free agent would normally be.
