THIS is one of the most outdated views on the draft. There is nothing value-wise that should make a future pick worth less than a current year's pick. If I were a GM I'd abuse old time GMs who think f

Umm, I wonder if Ballard knew that?

Nonsense.

Wrong. We still have pick 34. Probably saw one of the 8-9 guys we wanted would still be available due to the run on bizarro picks early on. Might as well trade back and get an extra second. 

Saw Schultz (local radio guy) say that Ballard said that he viewed guys 15 through 70 as about the same value in this draft.  Not shocking to see this when you read that.

And how did you come up with that logic? Do you really see the redskins making the playoffs or winning more then 8 games?

 

Exactly. I smell another top 3 second round pick next year. Might not be as high of value right now at this moment... but next year, SWEET.

That or they all still were and he knew he could still get one at 34

And MAYBE another with the Redskins pick, if not it will be a guy close in value.  So they pretty much got two guys who are going to be of similar talent as to what they would have gotten and most likely another high second round pick next year.

Apparently ballard sees 2nd round value next year

 

I mean, there is always 2nd round value. Next year will be no different. And he's gambling on the Redskins continuing to suck (not too dumb right?). Top 5 pick in the 2nd round next year. Book it.

  I can live with the choices Ballard makes.  He's earned that trust in my eyes.

HOWEVER..... the guy could have tipped us Colt fans off a little.

I totally wasted 2 1/2 hours of my life and i'm considering sending him a bill.

I didnt make it up. Future picks are devalued a full round according to the draft chart or the value is cut in half. But w/e it's not end of the world there's still gonna be good players at 34

Drop 20 spots back for next year's 2nd rounder? Lmao, that's not good.

 

Seems like a panic move after everyone they like went off the board.

That Skins 2 is gonna be pretty close to a 1 next year... lol

even if thats the case, the redskins are playing with a rookie QB with no weapons and a subpar defense. I can't see them having much success this year

Like what he did. Again next year we’ll be going into it again with 2 second round picks. This year was deep with talent. We have a chance to get 3 Top 50 players in this years draft.

Common sense. A draft pick now is more valuable than a future pick.

As a few ppl mentioned, that Skins future 2nd is going to be a premium pick.

 

If they start Haskins all year, the kid is going to take his lumps and they will not finish the year very high. And if Haskins doesn't start right away it's Keenum or Colt McCoy.

 

That future 2nd is going to be a top-10ish pick in the second round next year. We will surely enjoy it then.

Or they can make the playoffs and all of a sudden the picks in high 50s or 60s. This is the NFL man things change fast. 

 

Probably should have gotten a 4th back with this

...until next year. We can reevaluate then, ok? I'm reevaluating last years trade with the Jets right now, and that future 2nd round is looking great...

If that happens we can always trade and move up.

Except for the fact that a future pick could be like 20 spots higher than the ones they have this year? Lol

I could be wrong here but I think Haskins is going to be a bust.  He seems to believe is own hype a little too much IMO.

We get their 46th pick tomorrow. We have three picks tomorrow. Ballard is so freakin smart.

I mean obviously we got their 46th. Would be odd to just give them our 1st for nothing other than their next earliest pick. I do think we could have gotten slightly more value though.
