It starts in the trenches

I, like many fans would love to see the Redskins draft someone like Matt Barkley to give presumably give this team the franchise quarterback it desperately needs, however, the team needs much more than that. Say that the Redskins do not end up with a draft pick that gives them the chance at taking Barkley or Jones (who I am not sold on), and RG3 decides not to come out which is a real possibility. Then what? Do you draft a tackle who could anchor the right side for 10 years or so, or do you draft a playmaker like Alshon Jeffery assuming he is on the board who is the closest thing some scouts have seen to a Calvin Johnson type of receiver. Granted, nobody is saying he is as good as Johnson, but he is 6'4-6'5 with a pretty good vertical and huge hands. Hankerson exploded for one game and is unproven and Moss and Gaffney aren't ideal redzone targets. All opinions are welcome, but ill start with mine. I say the Redskins draft a lineman and sure up the tackles, and look to draft a WR like Nick Toon in the 2nd round because the 2nd round draft prospects are more projects than anything. Give the next young QB we get the best chance to succeed. The Skins could go Linebacker, Secondary or Offensive Guard with the 3rd round, but this is mostly focused on the first round selection. Anyway, thoughts?


Rex Grossman could learn a thing or two from Tebow, atleast Tebow knows he can't throw.
