Recommended Posts

The Redskins invited first-round pick LaRon Landry to Redskins Park on Sunday and completed a defense-focused draft by taking linebackers Dallas Sartz from USC in the fifth round and H.B. Blades from Pittsburgh in the sixth. Texas-El Paso quarterback Jordan Palmer was a late sixth-round pick, and Michigan tight end Tyler Ecker was chosen in the seventh.


Maryland quarterback Sam Hollenbach, Maryland offensive lineman Stephon Heyer also was signed by Washington, Connecticut running back Terry Caulley, LSU cornerback Daniel Francis, UCLA defensive end Justin Hickman, Oklahoma linebacker Zach Latimer, Youngstown State running back Marcus Mason, Boston College wide receiver Taylor Sele and Virginia wide receiver Deyon Williams.


All-Atlantic 10 left guard, UNH Tucker Peterson also signed with Washington Redskins

Did anyone read Charley Casserly's CBS Sportsline article, "Team-by-team analysis: Judging without grades" on the Washington Redskins?


The Redskins knew going in, it was going to be a one-player draft and they picked a good one in S LaRon Landry, who has Pro Bowl ability and many people felt he was the safest defensive player at the top of the draft. He is more athletic than Sean Taylor, but Taylor made more impact plays in college.


I like this pick. My only question, which I cannot answer by watching tape, is who will be the defensive signal caller between Landry and Taylor?


Landry was a four-year starting safety for the Louisiana State University Tigers. In 2006, Landry earned first team All-American and first team All-SEC honors after collecting 74 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, one sack, one forced fumble, one blocked kick, and three interceptions. His senior season was capped with an invitation to the Senior Bowl and as a semifinalist for the Thorpe Award.



Scouts have stated that a possible reason why the Redskins did not pick defensive end Jamaal Anderson is that his outside rushing speed is not probowl caliber.
