The Redskins signed linebacker DeMarquis Gates, another former player from the AAF. They had signed pass rusher Andrew Ankrah, another AAF alum, on Monday. Gates played for the Memphis Express.

Redskins fans need to hear this before the draft https://t.co/CNUwYBHF9W— AmpireMedia (@AmpireMedia) April 10, 2019
Is it just me or does it seem like every #Redskins beat reporter has no idea what the team is gonna do and they just link them to a different QB each day because they need to get clicks— DroMoney (@Dro_Money21) April 11, 2019
I mean, can someone pay me to say they like every top QB prospect in the draft? https://t.co/0HIUQms1St
Is it me or do some fans not have a clue how this works? Do people not have a clue that there are multiple scenarios that exist because ... they pick 15th? Is it me or is it really hard to understand we need to cover many scenarios? Is it me or is it that difficult to understand?— John Keim (@john_keim) April 11, 2019
Seems to be More depth at WR than day 1 standouts. As someone told me the other day: "No Julio Jones' in this class." https://t.co/ZApPPOsWHO— John Keim (@john_keim) April 10, 2019
“You put me on tape and you just see long legs eating up space. You don’t know how fast they’re moving. But if you put me next to a small guy, you’re gonna see the speed. I play fast."— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) April 10, 2019

One of my tasks today: edit my QB pre-writes for the @BleacherReport live pick-by-pick draft grades so they don't sound like someone peed in my Cracklin Oat Bran before I wrote them.— Mike Tanier, Nutty Uncle Draftnik (@MikeTanier) April 11, 2019
I'm just not real crazy about these QBs.
My Ryan Finley scouting report boils down to "yes, he is indeed a QB of the sort who is drafted by NFL teams."— Mike Tanier, Nutty Uncle Draftnik (@MikeTanier) April 10, 2019
My Will Grier scouting report boils down to "He doesn't stink and ... he kinda has upside?"— Mike Tanier, Nutty Uncle Draftnik (@MikeTanier) April 10, 2019

When determining what NFL coaches think of QB prospects, I ask, "What would this QB look like to me if I believed I had magical powers to make all of his flaws disappear?"— Mike Tanier, Nutty Uncle Draftnik (@MikeTanier) April 10, 2019
2 things, as to @dh_simba7, thru the process ...— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 10, 2019
1) One AFC OC (echoed by others): "His Pro Day was super impressive physically."
2) What @OSUCoachMeyer told me: "His football intellect is over the top." (Board work w/teams reflected it)
... So, like Ian said, this is strange. https://t.co/Zdzh6WQUcQ
.@HailStateFB @GrindSimmons94 is the most physically dominant player in this draft. 38 straight games w/o injury but tears his ACL in off season training. Please, go back to the tape tape tape. Is he the next Fletcher Cox? Who makes the investment & how high?? #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/efCP6nwY1I— Brian Baldinger (@BaldyNFL) April 9, 2019

Austin Walter - Rice
Jason Huntley - New Mexico State
Quite the list... This isn't everyone but big names immediately pop!— Ben Fennell (@BenFennell_NFL) April 11, 2019
Do you think the #Redskins need to invest a high pick at CB in the 2019 Draft to potentially be Norman’s successor?— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) April 11, 2019
Nick Bosa used to tweet in support of President Trump and in opposition to Colin Kaepernick, but he says he gave that up because he might get drafted by San Francisco https://t.co/FWpLxgMsMh— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 10, 2019

Hollywood storyline - think 'Dave' for pro football:— Dave Dameshek (@Dameshek) April 10, 2019
When a spoiled star forces his way out of Pittsburgh, the Steelers replace him with his same-surnamed cousin, give him the same jersey #, and - with a little bit of luck & whole lotta of love - things turn out better than ever! https://t.co/AdsfBZKZoP

Even a negative Nats fan has to admit that considering the team lost Trea Turner in the first inning of game 4, has had major bullpen drama and started 0-2, sitting at 6-5 coming home is admirable.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) April 11, 2019
#Nationals Trevor Rosenthal is the first pitcher in baseball history to make his first out of a season in his fifth appearance on the year.— Ryan M. Spaeder (@theaceofspaeder) April 11, 2019

You can put Alex Ovechkin on the board in the 2019 playoffs. He makes it 3-0 #Caps after smashing a loose rebound past Mrazek. Washington is playing a tremendous first period and the arena is on fire.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) April 12, 2019
