Redskins take offensive linemen with final picks


The Redskins have added two more linemen with ther final two picks in the seventh round, taking New Mexico center Erik Cook with the 229th selection and West Virginia tackle Selvish Capers with the 331st overall selection.

So the Redskins had six picks in this year's draft and used three of them on offensive linemen.

Cook is listed at 6-foot-6, 318 pounds and could also find himself playing guard in the NFL. He was a three-year starter for New Mexico and was named first-team All-Mountain West as a senior. Capers is 6-4, 304 pounds and was a three-year starter for the Mountaineers. Capers arrived at West Virginia as a tight end but began lining up as a lineman during his sophomore season. As a senior, he was a second-team All-Big East selection, starting 13 games at right tackle.

At the NFL Scouting Combine in February, Capers ran the 40-yard dash in 5.12 seconds. His arms measured 34 inches long and he bench-pressed 225 pounds a total of 18 times.

REDSKINS 2010 Draft
1- Trent Williams (OT - Oklahoma)
2- Donovan McNabb (QB - Syracuse)
3- Jeremy Jarmon (DE - Kentucky)
4- Perry Riley (ILB - LSU)
5- Adam Carriker (NT - Nebraska)
6- Dennis Morris (TE/FB - Louisiana Tech)
7- Terrence Austin (WR/KR - UCLA)
7- Erik Cook (OG - New Mexico)
7- Selvish Capers (OT - West Virginia)

We may be down a 3rd/4th for next year based on McNabb's production, but we got a 4th back in 2012 for Campbell. Overall, I love what we've done with this years picks.

On ESPN they said Capers fell because he is pretty weak for an o linemen and he got abused at the Senior Bowl. But they say he is quick and moves great in space so he could excel in our zone blocking scheme if he gets in the weight room for a few months.

Posted by: peteywheatstraw | April 24, 2010 4:29 PM |

Hicks will be the starting RT, he was the 6th man last year on the best o-line in the league. He is worlds better then Heyer, you can't get everything in one draft with only 6 picks.

On the flip side-- did you know that the Redskins have a connection to the fella who has the record for fewest reps on the bench?

That would be our own (former) blabbermouth, Fred Smoot, who benched a measly TWO reps. Seriously.

Also, I agree-- I like this draft considering what we had to work with in terms of picks. Next year's draft will net us another RB, more OL, safety, and linebackers, not to mention the spending frenzy you can expect in the amazing UFA class of 2011...

Hicks is an interior lineman. He's more likely to start at guard than tackle, if he starts at all.

Our RT will either be Trent Williams or a vet who we sign in the next few weeks. There's going to be a lot of vets looking for work after the draft. There will also be a few trades.

Posted by: League-Source | April 24, 2010 4:42 PM | Report abuse

I like the OL additions at the end of the day. It rounds out into a solid draft considering how few picks they were working with and how many needs we had. We have a starter at LT, two guys who can contribute immediately on special teams particularly at KR/PR and we added depth at several OL positions who could develop into starters in a year or two plus a backup for sellers who can catch out of the FB/HB position.

As the coach noted, we got a pro bowl QB for a 2nd rounder and a DE/LB for a 3rd.

We could have done a lot worse.

Now, let's see what goodies can be added from FA and let the staff do their job coaching 'em up. As for Capers being weak, just remember strength can be added in the weight room. Size and athleticism can not.

Posted by: nobody1000 | April 24, 2010 4:42 PM | Report abuse

3 linemen who simply need to bulk up and add some strength, but are intellectually and fundamentally sound. Talk about fixable problems.

Sounds like Capers is one who FO views as in the weight room on Next Year's Practice Squad.
Hoping no one picks him up and he may be ready for 2011.

Yep, argue the toss on Riley vs Campbell, but given the latter's bust potential we'll just have to wait and see, and agree with the post that he's an LT more than RT.. Always take the player over the athlete. Time will tell on Williams vs Okung. C+.

"REDSKINS 2010 Draft
1- Trent Williams (OT - Oklahoma)
2- Donovan McNabb (QB - Syracuse)
3- Jeremy Jarmon (DE - Kentucky)
4- Perry Riley (ILB - LSU)
5- Adam Carriker (NT - Nebraska)
6- Dennis Morris (TE/FB - Louisiana Tech)
7- Terrence Austin (WR/KR - UCLA)
7- Erik Cook (OG - New Mexico)
7- Selvish Capers (OT - West Virginia)"

Well put. Of course we should probably put '0.5' next to McNabb because that's on layaway. But then we get it back in part because Jarmon has been with the club for a year already.

And any draft class has to be evaluated in view of the FAs that have been signed or will be signed over the next few months. If the team has already signed two veteran RBs, that greatly lessens the chances they'll expend draft picks there. Same with defensive linemen.

But I did think they might grab a young QB, or sign one from the UFA class.

My gripe is the overemphasis on the Combine. So much depends on who gets invited. You get someone like Dorin Dickerson of Pitt blowing everybody away on the speed measures and then barely getting drafted at all, while a player like the guy at LaTech goes unnoticed by the fans.

Posted by: Samson151 | April 24, 2010 4:46 PM | Report abuse

Capers is like a Gibbs pick. Extremely smart, above average speed and athletic. Can learn to play multiple positions. Needs work on technique and strength. Could end up starting.

David Howard from Columbia and Oakland Mills High School just got drafted by the Titans. David went to Brown, tremendous athlete for a DT and a great human being, I was hoping the Skins could sign him as a free agent but the Titans are getting a good one.

Posted by: peteywheatstraw | April 24, 2010 4:46 PM | Report abuse

To recap:

We got our franchise LT to fit our scheme - our biggest need.

We got a Pro Bowl QB with 3-4 years left by trading an unwanted QB (JC) and a 2nd for Donovan (4th rounders in 2011 and 2012 cancel out).

We traded ONE early 5th rounder for Adam Carriker, Dennis Morris, and Terrence Austin.

We got Jarmon for a 3rd. Riley for a 4th, addressing depth on the defensive front.

We traded one pick in the 7th for Erik Cook and Selvish Capers, addressing O-line depth.

IMO, really hard to criticize what Shanallen did with very limited resources. And we broke even in future years by losing a pick in 2011 and gaining one in 2012. Hopefully our draft resources will be back to normal now.

The real work for the Front Office begins in 45 minutes after pick 255, Mr. Irrelevant. At that moment everyone at Redskins Park will be calling the unrestricted free agents. Shanahan himself will be on the phone to some QB.

I've got to believe that they'll be more successful getting these guys with Mike Shanahan as head coach than with Jim Zorn.

I'm guessing that there might be more to Capers' slide ... like he is missing a kidney, currently facing SEC charges for insider trading, showed up for the weigh in at The Combine with painted toe nails ... that type of thing. There's something more to this. I don't recall that there were any flags about his motor or his work ethic. Maybe its just that everyone from WVU is automatically suspect nowadays.

Overall a offseason so far for the Skins given the cards they were dealt when they took over for Cerrato. Shanahan and Allen have done good job getting value and not doing anything stupid to hurt the team going forward.

If McNabb can stay healthy and the defense is still strong the Skins could be back in playoff contention.

Chris Brown from Oklahoma would be a typical Shanahan pickup. North South runner who can catch the ball.

Ladies and gentlemen, let's not forget where we started at compared to where we ended. We started the weekend with 4 picks, and we finished with 6. We got 3 OL and addressed LB. We had 1 top 100 pick. We made the right trades (I don't like the McNabb deal but it's an upgrade and buys us time). We have serviceable people in place while we BUILD this team. Next year (if not this year with a FA pick up), we will address our other tackle position, S, WR, DB, and QB. We'll probably pick up anlother LB too, and get better and younger in the process. WE'RE MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. We just have to crawl before we run, and we'll be walking come next year, so we're gonna be ok.

I like the last two linemen selections. Capers has the potential to develop into a quality backup and perhaps even starter after a few years. Cook sounds like a good utility guy who you can plug into three spots, though sounds like a practice squad candidate for this year.

I'm still scratching my head over Morris and Austin. Austin was only 60th last season in the NCAA in kick return average, 34th in punt returns, and only 22nd in the PAC-10 in receiving yards.

Morris, the more I hear about the more hopeful I am. He sounds like he could be a good sleeper find, but seems like a reach in the 6th round.

Riley sounds interesting, moving to the 3-4 they needed some more depth at LB, particularly inside.. seems like a good pick.

I'm withholding judgment on Williams, has all the talent in the world but admits he has been lazy in the past.

Overall I am not very impressed considering their inability to move JC for more then then a 4th rounder 2 years from now. This trade makes Al Davis look like a genius, who would have thought that would ever happen again?

I'm hopeful, but not impressed. But then again that could be why I watch games on TV and not from sidelines.

I love Perry Riley, but I would have taken Eric Norwood from South Carolina because he is more versatile than Riley. Riley will be an ILB in the 3-4, Norwood could be a OLB or ILB, he would have been a steal in the 4th round. The only real gripe I have about the draft is that instead of taking Morris (who after I read about I did like) I would have taken a NT or OLB. I think Morris will end up on the practice squad this year. We could have taken Brandon Lang there, we could have taken George Selvie, Brandon Deadrick, and Cade Weston were two of favorite late DL.

Oh well, overall it was a great draft.

The pick for Campbell is conditional. We only get the 4 if the Raiders make the playoffs or Jason goes to the pro-bowl. This is if either occurs prior to the 2012 pick. Not a sure bet in any form. So we may get nothing while they get a starting QB.

Other than the small guy at WR/KR/PR, the draft went as well as could be expected. And the little guy may be good just not sure that a lineman couldn't be gotten with that pick instead since Thomas is penciled in for that slot. Gotta have some depth cause those big guys go down, sometimes too often.

And the little guy may be good just not sure that a lineman couldn't be gotten with that pick instead since Thomas is penciled in for that slot. Gotta have some depth cause those big guys go down, sometimes too often.

Another below average draft from the Skins. Where did the 3rd and 5th round picks go? I find it hard to get excited over 3 7-th round picks. Boooo

Post refresh appears to be malfunctioning today...

And I have to revise my earlier comments because they passed up Bruce 'The Animal' Campbell to get Perry Riley...Dude is surely worth a 4th rounder to get a 'Caveman' at RT...he's a Doc Walker kinda guy

Lets be realistic. We have only one "shouldn't miss" in this draft and that is Trent Williams. The two OL, well there is a reason they went so late. More than likely they will be projects. Do we remember Chad Rhinehart? Drafted in the 3rd round. So far, a ham-n-egger. Two 7th rounders probably aren't going to set the league on fire. Not trying to be overly critical of Shanny, but I am underwhelmed so far. This team will benefit from better coaching and better discipline, but our personnel upgrade is nothing to write home about.
