I've started working on my mock draft and will unleash it later this week. First of all, those things are fucking tough to do. I don't know what the Packers need or what kind of defense the Bills run. It is much much harder than you think. I don't get paid to write about the NFL (or paid at all) so why should I give a shit about the Dolphins needs? But, I think I have everyone slotted for the first round and now I just a need a day or two to finalize it.
One thing bothers me though as we lead up to this weekend's draft. And that is that the always brilliant Dan Snyder seems to want to rebuild again. Everyone is reporting that he is in love with Mark Sanchez. God dammit, please don't do this. I would bet that 99% of Redskins fans are awesome and also would hate to see our team pull off some stupid lop-sided deal to trade up for this potential one year wonder.
Let's be honest, this kid is going in the top ten. He may go either 4 or 5. Sanchez isn't falling to 13. If he would, then fine, go get him. But since he will not last that long, how about you not dump 2 first rounders, a third, and probably a 5th for one guy who couldn't even win in Corvallis, Oregon. If he can't win there with insane amounts of talent, what is he going to do in Dallas or New York or Philly??? This concerns me...a lot. We only have one pick in the top 75 this year anyway so trading up here would not only fuck over this year's draft, but next year's as well.
Is Jason Campbell a franchise QB? We still don't know for certain 4 years after he was drafted in the first round (in which Snyder traded up to get him). If we would ever stop changing coaches and offenses every season, maybe we would know this by now. But Snyder and Vinny Cerrato's ineptitude has prevented us from knowing these things. They already shit all over Campbell by trying to get Cutler and now they let it leak that they really want a one year starting college QB? This makes no sense to me. But what should I expect. It's my fault. I support a Dan Snyder owned team.
I just pray to God that the Seahawks bite the bullet and fuck over Snyder's plans here. We don't need a fucking QB. Hell, if Campbell sucks this year, the QB's coming out next year are MUCH better. We need a god damn pass rushing DE or an offensive tackle. I'm sick and fucking tired of never pressuring the QB/watching our QB run for his life. When will these dumb fucks learn that you build a team from the inside out. Only the Raiders and Texans would draft a QB without having competent people blocking for him.
Dammit, why does my owner always make me plan for the worst...
