With the fourth overall pick, everyone thinks the Redskins will take an offensive tackle, probably Trent Williams or maybe Russell Okung. But ESPN's Adam Schefter, who is close with Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and has broken several Redskins-related stories this offseason, says he thinks people are going to be surprised with what the Redskins do with the fourth pick.

"I'm not so sure about that," Schefter said on ESPN Radio this morning, of the assumption that the Redskins will take a tackle. "It's the obvious pick and I think they have some things up their sleeve, is my guess."

Schefter also said the Redskins would like to trade down.

"Washington is interested in moving back if they can find a team that is looking to move up, but so far that has not been the case," he said. "They're not able to find a trade partner."

If they can't find a trade partner in the next 12 hours, they'll need to make their pick. Everyone thinks that pick will be an offensive tackle. But maybe everyone is wrong. Or maybe the Redskins just want everyone to think they're wrong as they continue to shop the pick.

I wish all I had to do at my job was convince my boss that my customer MIGHT be doing this or that. If they throw enough poo against the wall....sooner or later something will stick.

That's good to know.

That's interesting to hear about Clausen though. I believe it was Kiper that said there is an 80% chance The Golden Calf of Bristol goes in the first. For Clausen to fall all the way to 30, one would assume The Golden Calf of Bristol wouldn't be taken over Clausen. I don't think Colts or Saints take The Golden Calf of Bristol, so I'm assuming The Golden Calf of Bristol definitely goes Mid 2nd if this happens.

Uh-oh. Brandon Jacobs is gonna be pissed.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that the Giants have asked running back C.J. Spiller for his phone number.

Unless they want to ask him out on a date, the only explanation is that they want to be ready to tell him that they'll be drafting him.

Though the Giants have shown no outward interest in Spiller, there's a belief that they could be in play. As yours truly pointed out last night on SNY's Loudmouths with Adam Schein and Chris Carlin, the Giants may have to move up a bit to get him.

I listened to a local player talk about his draft day experience. Team A got his phone number, said they were going to draft him early. He got friends and family together on draft day for a big party. Call never came. Next morning team A called him 16 times before he picked up the phone. Coach said we're going to take you with our first pick today............he said, what ever and hung up.

The Charlotte Observer projects the Panthers to draft Illinois WR Arrelious Benn with the No. 48 overall pick.

The Panthers also have a pressing need on the defensive line, but local media has been pushing for a wide receiver with the first pick. Notre Dame's Golden Tate, USC's Damian Williams, and Ohio's Taylor Price are also possibilities.

The NFL is always watching.

So when Jimmy Clausen sat down with Jon Gruden for his Sportscenter QB camp special, there were plenty of eyeballs still evaluating the Notre Dame quarterback.

"There are these nagging concerns about what kind of kid is he and the other night people around the league were talking about this," NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said this morning on the Dan Patrick Show. "He threw his wide receiver under the bus. And quarterbacking 101 is you take responsibility. Everything is your fault."

Mayock said that caused some to wonder, "People look at that go 'wow'. Is that what we're getting?"

It's amazing, but Mayock thinks the Gruden interview could hurt Clausen. No one can figure out where he'll land, with a long slide to No. 30 possible if he gets past San Francisco and Seattle.
