It's official, there are no more good linebackers available in this year's draft...
Washington selects Jordan Palmer, Quarterback, University of Texas El Paso
Hmm... Carson's brother. 6'6" QB (hopefully he's a lefty, too). Threw for 26 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last season, 65.7% completion rate for 3595 yards, and a 5-7 record. Full statistics here
I've gotta' say that I like this pick, too. Palmer's another young, tall, quarterback, and we picked him up much later in the draft than one would have expected. He even addresses a need on our team - backup quarterback for the next few years (and who knows what will happen from there?).
This thead doubles as a farewell to Todd Collins, who will now almost certainly be cut. Thanks for your service, Mr. Collins.
