Mike Adams hinted at conversations with the Redskins when interviewed on Thursday.

Obviously the Skins are going to connect with a slew of players over the five or so days and a report for all of these "meetings" aren't entirely necessary; but I thought the recap of a Mike Adams interview today was extremely interesting. Adams has been forgotten by some because of his five game suspension surrounding the Ohio State scandal and a 2009 suspension because of drug related charges.

Nevertheless Adams has been rising up draft boards and impressing many scouts, including that of the Redskins during the all-star game phase. According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, the Redskins met with Adams today and asked him about the possibility of moving to the right side:

"Whatever a team wants," Adams said. "I’m just blessed to be in this position. No matter where I go [in the draft], I feel blessed."

What can we speculate from this meeting and the particular question of moving to right tackle? Does this spell the end for Jammal Brown, who Mike Shanahan has been keeping a close eye on? Could this also signal a possible trade back? Adams is thought to be a mid to late 1st round prospect, so perhaps this could mean the Redskins are planning on getting their QB via Free Agency. Or is the more likely scenario that Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen are just doing their due diligence in Indy?
