Draft analysts: Redskins shouldn’t wait until 2012 to draft a QB




No.....not because of his face in the above picture. There was an interesting article in the Washington Post about to draft or not to draft a QB this year. Highlights quoted below. Thoughts?

 

 

Former Redskins general manager and current NFL analyst Charley Casserly says if Washington has a need at quarterback, it shouldn’t pass on one this year and bank on a better option in next year’s draft.

“To me, the answer is ‘No,’ because the biggest problem you have is, who’s going to be in the draft [next year]?” Casserly said in a teleconference with reporters today. “And it’s hard to predict what juniors are going to come out. And it’s hard to predict how well a player is going to play in his senior year. To me it’s too unpredictable. Obviously, Andrew Luck is coming out next year, but you’re going to have to bet on being 1-15 and 0-16 to get him, and that’s assuming he doesn’t have an injury. So I don’t think it’s practical to look at the draft for next year.”

 

 

I think the Luck option has already been discussed on this site. I'm not certain the Redskins fan-base would actually be able to  survive a 1-15 or 0-16 season in order to draft Luck, let alone the coaching staff and Snyder himself.  

 

NFL Network analyst and former NFL executive Michael Lombardi agreed. He said Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, whom he knows well, would never base a decision on what could happen down the road.

“Knowing Mike Shanahan, I don’t think Mike Shanahan thinks that he can’t win this year, so his thinking is going to be improving the team this year immediately and then let things unfold as they may,” said Lombardi, who also took part in the teleconference. “But I think they’re in the present day, and they’ll try to solve their needs by either trading down and collecting some more picks or doing something at the tenth pick overall.”

 

 

So let's be clear. This is not a question of who, we all have our own opinions on that. The question is THIS year or NEXT year.
