Yea this is a "redskins" draft database however it's not surprising that everybody seems to think we're gonna take a CB or WR in the first round. The tally goes something like this for the first ten.

Alshon Jeffery WR III

Morris Claiborne CB II

Dre Kirkpatrick CB II

Michael Floyd WR

Justin Blackmon WR

Brandon Thompson DT

I don't really agree with the consensus hierarchy because I think the defensive line is the next big thing we need to fix on this team, and a lot of these have us passing up Coples for these guys. It would be hard for me to pass him up if he dropped to our pick. Even if DE is not a glaring need, which it is not, despite Davis' career being over I don't want to spend yet another 1st round pick on a linebacker, and I think we're set at corner, and I like Thompson and Ta'amu, but not over Coples.

If you look at teams with the best defensive front I automatically have to cite the Giants. They've been dealing with injuries in their back 7 but they still are holding up because their front four is so talented. They harassed Fitzpatrick all day against Buffalo. Before that game Fitz had been knocked down 3 times all season and sacked only 3 times as well, until the Giants faced him, and knocked him down at least 4 times in addition to sacking him 3 times. This is a QB who throws the ball an average of 1.5 seconds after each snap btw. Yes Smith is on the wrong side of 30 but I think he's got some good years left so WR isn't an immediate need

I understand were you are coming from but we don't really need a DE. But he would probably be best player available.

You don't take BPA period, you take BPA at a position of need. Besides, I doubt Coples is available when we pick anyway. Even if he was, it's inefficient to spend your top draft pick on a DE when our two DEs we already have are the best two players on the defense right now (not counting the hurt Beason).

i didn't say he would definitely be, but in a lot of those mocks they have us picking corners while he is still available

We didn't need Kalil when we took him, he was a strict BPA pick. A lot of times, depending on the GM, you do go BPA according to your board and those aren't arranged by need.

I meant after the 1st. I just meant I don't think we can afford the luxury of taking a DE with our first round pick when we have some pretty important holes to fill right now. If there's a DE that looks like a good value later, I wouldn't speak ill of the choice to pick him. I just don't think we can afford the luxury of using our 1st round pick on a DE. If we're thinking that way, we might as well take a look at Trent Richardson or Landry Jones or Robert Griffin III while we're at it.

there are a lot of ways you can put the 3 of them on the field at the same time. For instance you can put either CJ or Coples in the interior on passing downs, and line up the other 2 at end. And I don't feel as though there's a huge dropoff between Thompson and lower ranked DTs that would be available when we pick in the 2nd.

it's not a luxury pick because we have a problem with getting to the passer. With Drew Brees, Freeman and Ryan in our division we're gonna have to get better at getting to the QB. Coples affords us the ability for D-line flexibility in a lot of ways, and he's a great talent. It's not like we're throwing Hardy away. Like I said on obvious passing downs you could put all 3 on the line with Edwards to take up some blockers and blitz one of your LBs up the middle, with Coples in the middle as well you're much more likely to collapse the pocket. It's not about "lets upgrade our starting DE" it's about adding a big nasty pass rusher you can utilize in a lot of different ways, alongside Hardy. His presence could also help Hardy make a lot of plays as well.

Not really. There is a big difference between taking possibly the best pass rusher in the draft that you can find ways to get on the field and will strengthen our defense, and taking a quarterback that won't see the field ever, or a running back who'll probably be third string in a passing offense.

Well, I was being facetious, but I just don't see getting all three on the field in a 4-3 and not give up a huge size difference. I just don't see it as big of an positive impact of taking a 2nd string DE (after Hardy and Johnson) on the team as taking a possible starting OT, WR or CB.

you're getting too hung up on the whole "starter" thing

OT and WR are also reasonable needs, but upgrading corner isn't going to do anything if there's no rush in the QB's face, and they have like 9 seconds to throw. Coples also has experience in the interior.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
