Well, At Least I Called The LB Part This Morning
So guess, that was the other guy they had rated ahead of Alexander still on the board.
Dallas Sartz USC. OLB. 6-5. 235
His dad was a college safety and his grandfather was a Golden Gloves boxer and hydroplane racer ... so ya gotta love that right off the bat.
He looked like a blue chipper coming into 2005 season, but dislocated his shoudlder, missed the rest of the season and was allowed to return to USC in 2006 as a medical hardship. He had 103 tackles, two picks, two fumbled recovieries and seven pass defelctions last year for the Trojans.
Said to be a good team-first kid and with a strong frame. Coverage is not his strong suit and will have to perfect his technique but could be a good teams guy off the bat.
The Skins have been trying to develop a young LB since this staff got here and maybe he'll be the guy. Kevin Simon,
Newberry and McCune all were drafted in recent years, but the low-pick LBs never really got on the field and Rocky's a work in progress and we'll see about his knees.
On another note, what are the odds the Redskins would draft a kid named Landry with their first pick and Dallas with their next selection? Somehwere the man with the cowboy hat must be smiling.
Also, should Blades or Alexander slip into the sixth round, I wouldn't rule out the Skins going LB again for one of them since they have two 6th round picks.
