Cowboys Pay Premium for Lawrence - ESPN Redskins Blog

The draft trade charts say that the Washington Redskins got the best of the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys don't care. They were willing to pay a steep price for the player they considered to be the last premier pass-rusher left on the board.

Redskins Pick Trent Murphy in the 2nd (Analysis) - ESPN Redskins Blog

My take: The Redskins needed help at a few areas and perhaps pass-rusher was not high on the fans' lists. But it was on the coaches' -- and it was on mine.

Redskins Pick Morgan Moses in the 3rd (Analysis) - ESPN Redskins Blog

My take: Had the Washington Redskins selected Moses at No. 34, or maybe even 47, I don't think I would have liked the move. At 34, you need to get a player close to being a starter, whether from Day 1 or not. But, certainly, at some point in their rookie year they need to be a key contributor, especially as a right tackle.

Redskins Pick Spencer Long in the 3rd (Analysis) - ESPN Redskins Blog

My take: The Redskins clearly wanted more size and muscle inside. They added more of it in Long, but this one feels like a reach late in the third round. He missed half the season with torn ligaments in his knee and, though he said he feels fine and is "ready to go" I do wonder if they could have waited another round and picked him up.

Recap of the Redskins 2nd and 3rd round picks - Fanspeak.com

Moses isn't a perfect prospect, but a lot of the knocks on him are minor and suggest more that he shouldn't be an option at LT. As a right tackle his skill set fits extremely well and there is no reason he can't be a very productive RT at the NFL level

Will the Redskins Go Small in Day 3 of the NFL Draft? - CSN Washington

It would not be surprising to see the Redskins acquire some smaller players today. Here are a few possibilities for their selection with the 102nd overall pick, the second one up after things get going at noon.

Need to Know:  5 notes & quotes on the Three Newest Redskins - CSN WashingtonFive quotes and notes about the three newest Redskins:

G Spencer Long is coming off of a knee injury that ended his 2013 season prematurely. The injury was to his left PCL and MCL and his recovery is doing well. "I'm just ready to hit the ground running for rookie minicamp next week."

2014 Senior Bowl Interview - OT Morgan Moses - Fanspeak.com

On what are the top traits he thinks he will bring to an NFL team:

I think I bring flexibility in being able to play right and left tackle. And to be able to do it very well. And also, I've been in multiple offenses so I know different schemes and different terminologies. And I learn quick so I think being able to come in and be able to get the gist of offenses is good for me.
