Per the Washington Examiner:
I do not harp on this just to be contrarian towards the team. It is my honest opinion based off my understanding of the league, the salary cap, free agency, and the Redskins recent history that persistent success can only come with a higher commitment to the draft than the Redskins have devoted to in recent years. I understand the "Free Agency" strategy, why it might be appealing to coaches and fans, but do not think it is tenable given the current structure of the team and our proven inability to properly evaluate free agents and other teams' personnel. All things equal more picks are better than fewer, and I truly hope that Coach Gibbs rethinks trading 2008 picks for Lance Briggs. He is not worth mortgaging our future over.
