For those of you who feel we should wait a year or two to address the QB position in the draft, I have put together my all-linemen 2010 NFL Draft Board. Keep in mind this will not address any other position than O-line. It is designed to give you a look at projections, and positions avaliable throughout all 5 rounds that the Redskins select in.
These are my projections of players who may be avaliable in these respective rounds. Keep in mind, this is just my guess.
Russell Okung OT (LT) OK. ST. 6-5 307
Trent Williams OT(LT,RT) Oklahoma 6-5 315
Bryan Bulaga OT(LT,RT) Iowa 6-5 314
Anthony Davis OT(LT) Rutgers 6-5 323
**I did not put Bruce Campbell in here because I don't believe he should even be in consideration for our #4, yet I do believe he will be gone in the first, so I didn't add him to my 1/2nd tweeners either. If he did slide into the 2nd, I wouldn't hesitate to draft him there.
1st-2nd RD Tweeners
Charles Brown OT(LT) USC 6-5 303
Maurkice Pouncy C/G Florida 6-4 304
Mike Iupati G/RT Idaho 6-5 331
**I truely don't expect either Pouncy or Iupati to fall into the 2nd, however if they do, either one would be a great pick. I'm hoping Brown will fall, but I'm having my doubts on him too.
Vladimir Ducasse T/G UMass 6-4 332
Roger Saffold OT(LT, RT) Indiana 6-5 316
**if C Brown or M Pouncy were avaliable at our 2nd round spot, it would ba a no-brainer. If both are gone, I believe Saffold or Ducasse would be the only other worthy options here.
Ciron Black OT/G(RT) LSU 6-4 327
Edwin Veldheer OT(RT) Hillsdale 6-8 312
Selvish Capers OT(LT) West Virginia 6-5 308
Sam Young OT(RT) Notre Dame 6-7 316
Mike Johnson G Alabama 6-5 312
Kyle Calloway OT(RT) Iowa 6-6 323
**the depth of the o-line class really starts to show later in this draft. I feel we can't go wrong with any of these guys if they are around in the 4th.
Jason Fox OT(RT) Miami 6-6 303
Tony Washington OT(RT, LT) Abilene Christian 6-6 311
Eric Olsen C/G Notre Dame 6-4 306
Jeff Byers C/G USC 6-3 301
Mitch Petrus G Arkansas 6-3 310
**Fox would be my favorite in the 5th. I still believe he is 2nd rd talent, but the injury concerns will hurt his stock. Tony Washington is an interesting prospect, and I suspect he will be avaliable here due to his off-field troubles. I would definitly see good value in either Olsen or Byers at the C/G spot.
Dennis Landolt G/OT PSU 6-4 303
Matt Kopa OT/G Stanford 6-5 300
Mike Tepper OT/G Cal. 6-5 324
**Pretty much a crap-shoot here. Who know though, we may find a diamond in the rough.
Below is my ideal Line-men Only Draft. I tried to keep this as realistic as possible without projecting huge reaches or drops by certain players.
1 - Russell Okung LT
2- Vladimir Ducasse RT
4- Mike Johnson G
5 - Jeff Byers C
7 - Dennis Landolt G/T
**out of this draft, I believe there could be 2 early contributers: Okung should start at LT, and Ducasse could push for playing time at either RG, or RT. Byers could be groomed as Rabach's replacement at C for 2011, and Johnson could be an upgrade at G over Dock in 2 years. Landolt could be a project, but his ability to play both T and G spots could be an assett that helps him make the team.
This is my "if the stars all alligned" draft:
1 - Russell Okung LT
2 - Maurkice Pouncy C
4 - Ciron Black RT/G
5 - Jason Fox RT
7 - Tony Washington LT(due to a high slide)
I know the staff will never take all O-linemen in the draft, but thia could give us an idea of what type of talent may be avaliable at our picks.
