In my opinion you do not draft a rb in todays nfl in the first round unless he is a really special talent. When you draft one that is not a special one,and he has a problem keeping hold of the football and he is not good in pass protection i question that.

When you are a team that has issues at the o-line and there are good prospects there and you dont take one i dont agree with that.I think we should have taken Glenn or Konz and tried for one of the rb in round 2 or 3.

I hope David Wilson makes me eat my words and i am well aware that i could be wrong about this.But this is how i see it.

The point i was making is that the top picks are even more valuable than they were before cause you dont have to pay as much as you used to in money to the the players.Thats why i think the price to move up to the first few places has become a lot more.

The points that are made against this trade are all very well argued.But i still would have done the deal.After the new rookie salary scale it was always clear that they would have to surrender more picks than a team had done before.Maybe my judgment is clouded since i have been watching RG3 this season a lot and i really love him as a player and as a person.I have do go with my gut feeling and say that this guy is worth it:I think the Redskins will in time be able to build around him.Once you have a franchise QG a lot of things start to come together.They also have a good defence and some players i like on offence.I am not saying that they only needed a couple of pieces but that they are not bad overall.They did beat us two times after all.Then they have a owner who has shown that he is willing to spend big in free agency and they have a lot of  salary cap space.Free agents i think will also be more interested in going there then before.They used to have just money but now they have money and a QB who people are excited about.At the end of the day i think it will be a lot more exciting to be a Redskins fan for the next few years than it has been lately.But i understand that its a big risk and like i said the points that are made against it are well argued and i agree with in some ways.I really really hope that i am wrong about this by the way.

The prize is heavy but i would have done the same thing.Having watched RG3 this season i think he is the real deal.I think that the Redskins will be big players in free agency so that will weight heavily against the draft picks that they had to give up.I think after a couple of years this deal will look very good.He is a good fit for Shanahan.At the end of the day if you dont have a QB you have nothing.He is not a sure thing but if you have do roll the dice i would do it with him.I dont think that the day that the Redskins select RG3 will be a good day for us.
