Looks like some good names on here. I hope they use their #5 pick to trade back and an get extra pick/picks. Skins first pick, wherever it is has to be an OL.

Mark Tyler's first 2015 Washington Redskins Big Board:

My film study has finally concluded, and over the last week I have been busy preparing my first 2015 pre-combine Big Board for the first few rounds of the Redskins draft.

This board is is still a work in progress, as the combine, and pro days, could cause some additions, subtractions and player movement. I decided to run by board into the fourth round area, as I view anything after that to be a crap shoot. I have also built in picks I'd like to see with the fifth overall selection, as well as those who would be a fit with a trade-back in the first round.

I disagree to a certain point about the first pick being a OL. While a offensive lineman is a major need, I also find another major need is a good pass rusher. The year's draft is stacked in the first round with DE's that Washington could use. Williams will go before #5 and Gregory might be gone before #5 also. I think the Skins first pick should be either Gregory (if available), Shane Ray, or Fowler. Lets face it, I doubt Orakpo gets resigned and if they do....more likely he will be injuried again. I think we can find a good OL in the second and third rounds.

How I would draft:

1st round - DE/OLB

2nd round - OT, G, or C

3rd round - DB, S, or FS

4th round - DT, S, or OT

5th round - WR, TE

6th round - OL

7th round - Whatever


Now I wouldn't be surprised if Washington drafts a QB somewhere in the 4th through 6 rounds.

The darkhorse pick for Washington at #5 is either Mariota or Winston. Mariota is more likely to be there since Winston should have more appeal to Tampa due to the ability to put FSU fans in the stands so if they like their interview with Mariota it wouldn't shock me at all to see him be picked at #5 if available.

They do have Kerrigan and they drafted Trent Murphy in the 2nd round last year that plays OLB. The OL has been pitiful for a long time.

before they do this, they need to get rid of RG3 and I don't think he has any trade value so they will probably just keep him......I'm really gald to see they have a new GM......he should be able to find real value in the later rounds that they haven't been able to do for 20 years. Hell they can't find value in the first couple of rounds either.

Yep...Gruden has already named him the starter for next year. Cousins wants out of Washington if RGIII was named starter......I'm kinda leaning towards a QB maybe in the middle rounds now. Don't know which QB's would be available by then. Hate to say it....but its gonna be another painful season in 2015.

Synder got to Gruden. Here's an article about what Shanahan had to say about RG3.
the kid is trouble......he's a lot more concerned about his brand than he is about winning games.

By Washington Times Staff - The Washington Times - Wednesday, February 18, 2015
Former Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan addressed multiple topics during an appearance on ESPN 980 on Wednesday afternoon, with the discussion centered primarily around quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Shanahan, speaking to Kevin Sheehan and The Times’ Thom Loverro on the team-owned radio station, addressed in detail the injury Griffin sustained in the playoff game against Seattle Seahawks in 2013 — one that may have altered Griffin’s career.

“When Robert runs that one quarterback keep inside the 5-yard line, I could see on replay that it looked like he hurt his knee,” Shanahan said on air. “So, I go over there, I said, ‘Hey, did you hurt your knee? And he said, ‘No.’ I said, ‘Well, it sure looked like it.’ He said, ‘No. I’m perfectly fine.’ And he said, ‘It’s my brace again.’ I said, ‘Well, if it’s your brace, it’s your brace.’ I said, ‘Man, it sure looked like you, you know, came down, fell down on it very awkwardly.’ He said, ‘No,’ he said, ‘I’m fine.’

“You take the rest of the second quarter or the rest of the first half, and I don’t feel very good about Robert, so, I go in there at halftime, I talk to the doctors, I says, ‘Hey, I’ve been doing this a while, and my gut is something’s wrong with Robert. That’s my gut. And, Dr. Andrews says, ‘Mike, there’s no difference with him right now than at the start of the game. His knee is as good as — is now as it was then. And, I asked Robert, ‘Do you feel that way?’ I said, ‘You don’t look that way.’ He said, ‘No, I guarantee you it’s fine.’”

Based on those responses, Shanahan said he felt Griffin earned the right to continue in the game.

“Both the doctor and Robert say he was perfectly fine,” Shanahan said.

Shanahan also said, prior to being assured Griffin was fine, that he had decided to start Kirk Cousins in the second half of the game.

At the start of the second half, Shanahan said he wanted to stay away from read-option running plays for Griffin because of injury fear. Then, the Redskins started slow on offense. Shanahan said he spoke to Griffin about using the read-option and that Griffin told him that he was fine. They called read-option, Griffin ran for nine yards, then limped to the sideline.

“I said, ‘Are you hurting that bad?’” Shanahan said he asked Griffin. “‘No, I’m not hurting that bad.’ I said. ‘It looks like you have one leg left.’ He said, ‘Coach, just watch me the rest of the game, I’ll show you my leg is fine. I guarantee you.’”

Shanahan said he again asked the doctor about Griffin’s health, and was again assured there were no problems. Shanahan was widely criticized after the game for playing Griffin.

There was also a past report that Shanahan considered quitting before the Seattle playoff game, which Shanahan called, “totally ridiculous.”

In a meeting two days after the Super Bowl, Shanahan said Griffin came to him with a set of plays he did not want to run anymore.

“I really don’t blame that on Robert,” Shanahan said.

Shanahan said he wanted Griffin to get better at throwing the ball away, sliding and doing the things that he “thought gave him the best chance to be successful.”

The argument Shanahan said he made to Griffin for keeping the running plays was that their threat actually protected him as a quarterback. Shanahan said Griffin told him which plays were “unacceptable,” and that term reminded him of Snyder’s persistent usage of the word.

“The bottom line was he wanted to throw more, run less.” Shanahan said.

Shanahan said he then went to Snyder.

“I said for a quarterback to come to me, a veteran coach, and share these things, No. 1, he can’t be the sharpest guy to do something like that,” Shanahan said. “Or, he’s got to feel very good about the owner backing him up. And, since you have been telling me since day one he’s a drop-back quarterback and he should do more drop-back, and you guys have spent the last couple months together, or at least the last month, that this is an extension of you.

“He said it wasn’t. I just told him that the only chance this kid, Robert, has to get to the level we need him to get to is for him to at least trust us; we’re going to run the offense that gives him the best chance to be successful. If not, it’s going to be impossible. He’s not ready for it.”

Shanahan, 62, said he thought Griffin not running that type of offense before was the biggest issue, and that it would take time — four or five years — for him to develop into a drop-back passer.

He later said that Griffin works hard on the physical side of the sport, but that he needs to be in the film room “every day” in order to become a high-end, drop-back quarterback in the league. He later added that Griffin has tremendous talent, which was proven by his rookie year.

“Basically, Robert, at this time — and I don’t blame this just on himself, I think he was getting a lot of feedback from a lot of people — that he was determined, ‘You know what? I’m kind of done with this offense. I might go with a couple different plays to appease people, but I’m going to show everybody I’m a drop-back quarterback and this is the direction I’m going in,’” Shanahan said. “That’s what he really believes. So, I knew my time was short-lived, with that type of mindset. Dan felt very strongly about that drop-back game as well.”

Shanahan went on to say that Andrews told him he did not want Griffin playing in games the following preseason. He also indicated that being great on the field wasn’t just going to happen for Griffin, and that he needed to work at it during camp and preseason.

“The great ones, they all spend that time,” Shanahan said.

Shanahan took responsibility for playing Griffin in the 2014 opener, noting that he was impressed enough with Griffin’s workouts at the end of preseason that he thought he was ready to play against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Other topics Shanahan addressed were the trade for quarterback Donovan McNabb in 2010, which he said was driven heavily by Snyder, as well as the belief that Kirk Cousins will be a “damn good” quarterback in the NFL at some point. And, ultimately, Shanahan said he would like to coach again.

There's a very real posibility that Mariota will be available for the Redskins #5 pick and there are several teams that might be willing to part with some extra picks to trade down to get him which will work out perfectly for the Skins. Maybe they can get enough extra picks to get back everything they lost with the RG3 trade. Probably not, but picking up a couple of extra fairly high picks would be a good start for the new GM.
Good read about this below.


Both of the top QBs in this year's draft made the decision to throw at the Combine, but there are other questions that need to be answered. Jameis Winston has off the field red flags that he attempted to address at his media availability, and during team interviews. From all accounts, Winston aced everything at the Combine, and has solidified himself as the number one pick this year for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If the Bucs decide to pass on him and take Mariota, it would be a surprise, but they will be doing extensive research on both players and things can change when you have all available information.

Peter King discussed the importance of Marcus Mariota's Pro Day yesterday, and how it could affect Washington's chances to secure a trade down this year. Teddy Bridgewater had a an 'average at best' showing at his Pro Day last year which helped drop his stock down to the bottom of the 1st round where Minnesota was able to trade up to draft him. No one expects that drastic of a drop for Mariota, but anything to keep him out of the top 4 could help the Redskins this year

I think the most important workout on the horizon is an early one. Marcus Mariota's pro day is March 12 in Eugene, and I talked to a couple of teams at the combine who will be watching to see how he does the kind of mundane things he didn't do much in college. Notably, dropping back, staying in the pocket and throwing from a stationary position. One of the other things Mariota's been working on is the simple calling of plays in the huddle. In college Mariota didn't huddle much, didn't take the snap under center much and didn't have a lot of power to change things at the line. All that is about to change, and how quickly he adapts will be vital to his early success as a pro.
We're going to assume that Winston is drafted #1, which leaves Mariota to the Tennessee Titans who did not pick up Jake Locker's 5th year option last season. Locker was injured again last year, and the Titans will likely move on from him this season. They have Charlie Whitehurst, who started 5 games for them last year, winning one against the lowly Jaguars. Clipboard Jesus is not the future for them, and they did draft a QB last year in the 6th round. The Titans want you to believe that they are very high on Zach Mettenberger, and will move forward with developing him to be the starter of the future. The Titans recently hired former Steelers DC Dick LeBeau and could be looking for a key piece for their defense. It is possible that they find a trade partner looking for Mariota which would lower the Redskins chances for a trade down at #5.

If the Titans do pass on Mariota, the next two teams, the Jaguars and Raiders, will not be taking him with both teams drafting a QB high last year. There is the possibility that a team could trade up with one of these teams for Mariota, but with both teams not having an interest in a QB, and the Redskins not posing much of a threat to take a QB(anything's possible but we're treating them like a competent organization for at least the 1st McCloughan draft) it seems unlikely. The Jaguars will likely go defense, and the Raiders are projected to take the top WR in this draft to pair with second-year QB Derek Carr.

This leaves the Washington Redskins in prime position to get trade offers from several teams. The New York Jets are one spot behind them, and while it's not a lock they go QB with a new defensive head coach(Todd Bowles), the possibility is very real. This presents a need to jump them in the draft for any teams that needs a QB. Several teams have been mentioned as possible trade partners at this spot, including the Jets(6th), Rams(10th), Browns(12th), and Eagles(20th). You can make the case for why each team would or wouldn't make the trade, but with this much perceived interest, a deal seems inevitable in this situation.

The Jets will know that if Mariota is still available at 5, teams will be calling Redskins GM Scot McCloughan about jumping them. What are they willing to give up to move up one spot to get their QB of the future? There is a premium on QBs, and with the terrible class of QBs in this year's draft, a very weak QB free agency group, and possible interest from other teams, it could be more than you'd expect. If the Redskins can get a 2nd or 3rd round pick this year and a high pick next year to move down one spot and still get your guy, that's a very tempting offer. It's hard to see Mariota making it past 6 this year either way.

The Rams pick at #10, and Head Coach Jeff Fisher reaffirmed his support for Sam Bradford at the Combine after reports came out that he was permitted to seek a trade. Bradford has been injured the last two seasons(this sounds familiar) and has a large cap hit($16.5 million with ~$13 million saved with a cut/trade). The Rams had an extra 1st round pick the last two drafts along with an extra 2nd in 2012 from the RG3 trade, but did not address the QB position. Will they bet on Bradford to stay healthy this year and earn a new contract, or go for someone like Mariota in a trade? This one seems the least likely to me, since the Rams brass relishes the amount of picks they received from Washington, and don't seem likely to give them back. But strange things happen on draft day.

The Browns could be a very real possibility to make this deal happen, even though they have used a 1st round pick on a QB in 2 of the last 3 drafts. The first QB, Brandon Weeden, quickly flamed out in Cleveland and is currently a backup for the Cowboys. The second QB, Johhny Manziel, flamed out even quicker, and looked lost in his rookie year, and recently checked into rehab for his problems with alcohol and other things. The Browns new QB coach, Kevin O'Connell has been working closely with Mariota in preparation for the Combine, and was only formally announced by the team last week. The Browns brass is reportedly open to finding a QB in any way possible, and they will be sitting there with two first round picks this year(#12 and #19). They might not be willing to part with both firsts, but trading down to #12, and getting more picks this year and next would help a rebuilding team with a new GM.

Then there is the big whale of the group, Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles. Could this possibly happen, are there enough draft picks and players that the Eagles could give up for the Redskins to trade down 15 spots, and give the Eagles the QB they covet? It's a general rule that you don't help teams in your division, and you definitely don't facilitate them getting their franchise QB. The fact that Chip Kelly is intimately familiar with how to use Mariota makes the proposition even less appealing. This isn't like the Eagles sending a broken Donovan McNabb to the Redskins, this is giving a division rival a young, cheap QB who knows their system. But what if newly empowered Chip Kelly goes crazy and offers an RGIII/Ditka/Walker level trade? Does McCloughan have enough confidence is his drafting and team building that the bounty of picks will allow him to build a team to compete in the division? Will he factor in the crippling effect losing multiple high picks will have on Philadelphia's ability to build around Mariota, especially with their aging offensive line? It would take a staggering deal from Philadelphia for this to happen.

Like many teams, Redskins need a better QB.

Bottom line, I think we finally have a GM that will actually be able to utilize the draft properly and land the Redskins what they need most, be it OL, pass rush, QB (which as stated won't happen as long as we have RG3, and he's not going anywhere soon). AND I think DS has finally realized that he just needs to cut checks and leave football operations to those who actually know something about it.

How is new GM Scot McCloughan doing......apparently pretty well. ESPN gives the Skins the second highest grade in free agency so far.

2015 Draft: Tracking the Redskins Pre-draft meetings, visits and workouts including:

Player, position, school, combine, pro day, visit, workout

Really good information regarding who they talked to and who worked out for them.

"The 2015 NFL Draft officially begins a week from tonight, and yesterday was the last day for teams to hold pre-draft visits with players. Yesterday, the Washington Redskins held a local prospect day for at least 20 players from the area. They also hosted USC DE Leonard Williams yesterday. I've been tracking the meeting, visits and workouts since this year's Combine, and have that list for you below. There have been many more formal and informal meetings between the team and prospects, but I have only listed the ones that have been reported. The Redskins are allowed 30 pre-draft visits every year, and I have 17 listed below. Last season the Redskins drafted one player that reportedly visited the team, Virginia OT Morgan Moses.

The pre-draft visit list definitely has some preferred positions this year, with OT, OLB, and DBs getting a lot of attention. There are also some WRs, OGs, and DL. It's interesting that there has only been one RB to visit the team, and that was a potential UDFA at the local prospect day yesterday. Last season the Redskins hosted several RBs, taking one that didn't visit(Lache Seastrunk), or make the team. They ended up finding their 3rd RB in UDFA Silas Redd.

How many pre-draft visitors will they draft this year?

It's always good to find numbers to back up a gut feeling. "Last season, I crunched the numbers and learned that of the 495 widely announced pre-draft visits, only 33 players were drafted by a team they visited, a 6.7% hit rate," wrote Mike Tanier on Sports on Earth. "Thirteen teams drafted zero of the players they interviewed. Reporting interviews does little but work reporters to exhaustion covering meaningless procedural minutiae."

Lalli, good call on Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson......see below.

"Rounds 2-4: There’s a debate over who will be the third quarterback taken. Baylor’s Bryce Petty has a fluid throwing motion -- one NFL coach told me he loved watching him throw for that reason. But he is not always accurate, usually a byproduct of footwork in the pocket. So he’ll have to clean that up as well as transition from an offense that is far different from what he’ll have in the NFL. UCLA’s Brett Hundley looks to run far too often. When his base is right, he can really deliver a nice ball. Colorado State’s Garrett Grayson moves well in the pocket and stays poised; willing to make big throws. His base is pretty solid. Oregon State’s Sean Mannion played in a pro-style offense and took snaps from under center. But he’s slow (5.1 seconds in the 40-yard dash), so that will hurt in the pocket and he has a longer delivery."
