THIS is one of the most outdated views on the draft.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.

    • No problem on the length of the post.   I did know of Dodds in 2012 when I started following the NFL Draft closely most because of the draft that the Seahawks did that got them Wagner and Wilson. It was looked very poorly upon early and criticized before being graded the best draft in 2012 after the season was over. You are correct I didn't know of Morocco Brown until Ballard signed him from the Redskins.    To me, it is pretty much SB or bust now. I went through 14 years on the Colts with Peyton, a top 3 QB of all time, and only won one SB because we shared the conference with the greatest coach/QB combination of all time. Fast forward a year when we are fortunate to get another franchise QB, Irsay hires a GM/Coach combo that has no idea what they are doing, we don't protect Luck, he gets injured, and he retires not only halfway into his career at 29.   Now QBs like Mahomes, Watson, Mayfield, Allen, and Lamar are either elite QBs for other teams in the conference, or leading their teams to the playoffs every year. Meanwhile, we had a one year band-aid with Rivers, and he retired on us. We lost our LT to an early retirement, we lost a decent amount of coaches, and we'll probably lose at least one of Dodds and Brown next year. For what? A playoff win in 2018?   I paid my dues as a fan with Manning and Luck. A top 3 QB of all-time and a top 5 QB that retired in his twenties. 20 years combined and one SB win. That's it. I was robbed of 10 years of QB play from a top 5 QB that would of kept us contending right now if it weren't for a shoddy GM. I don't want to go through this part of the journey anymore. I want to contend every year. I want to win another SB. 1 SB win with 20 combined years of Manning and Luck isn't good enough. 
    • So well said. Jared, take note. This is great advice. 
    • It should be said up front that I like you.  Always have.   So please read my comments thru that prism.  For starters....   you never heard of either Dodd or Brown until they became Colts.   There are other personnel people in the league that Ballard knows about and that you’ve never heard of who will replace them when they leave.  Bank on it.     Second....   the idea that you’re the only person here with passion is pretty insulting.  There are plenty of people who care just as much.  But they’re a combination of being a little older, a little wiser, a little more mature, so when things go badly, they don’t melt down which you are prone to do.     Third....   I’ve said this before, but I think it’s worth repeating.   Learn to enjoy the journey.  You’re in love with winning it all.  Win the Super Bowl or the season was a waste.  With that perspective, the odds are overwhelming you’ll never be happy.  You’ll never enjoy the day to day living as a fan.   As a fan, of course I want to win the Super Bowl.   We all do.  But in a year to year basis, I hope to make the playoffs.  Do that, and you’ve got a shot at the SB.  One step at a time.   But, as soon as our season is over, my attention turns to the off-season.   Ballard and his team are so good at what they do, that it’s fun to watch them handle their business.  They’re so much better than the previous front office, it’s night and day.    Some posters disappear for most of the off-season.  I think this time is tremendously fun!  Draft!   Free agency!   Replacing coaches that have moved on.   Good times, ahead!  Better days ahead!   Enjoy the journey!  You’ll enjoy being a fan even more.    Sorry this post was so long.     
    • Check that. ESPN is reporting that Trask is going, but not working out or playing. Damn.
