I don't disagree with that. But Vea isn't going to bull rush NFL interior Olinemen like he did college. Vea would likely be effective next to a elite DT like McCoy b/c Vea would get 1v1's, but if you're spending the 7th overall pick on a DT than he better be able to create pressure when he is the DT1 on a team and Vea isn't that type of DT.

I like Vea, just not at 7. If we traded down and picked up additional picks on day 2 that would open up our board than I love a guy like Vea somewhere in the 12-15 range. I just think there are more impactful players to be had at 7th overall.



Washingtons pass defense gave up 8 TD's
Washington rush defense #1
Total defense #5
Longest pass completion against 40 yards - that #1 in the FBS

Vea can play all three positions on a 3-4 front and depending on the situation I imagine he could play either DT positions in a 4-3.

Teams knew you had to get rid of that ball fast or you were going to get crushed and I cant name anyone on their defense. Have there been star DE's and star OLB's from Washington in the last few years?

That I can think of just Shaq Thompson recently.

In the past three drafts, Washington's defense has produced Danny Shelton, Marcus Peters, Shaq Thompson, Hau'oli Kikaha, Kevin King, Buddah Baker, and Sidney Jones. All first or second round picks. One defensive tackle, three corners, one outside backer, one edge, and a safety. Not bad.

Pete Kwiatkowski runs a tight ship over there. I heard him talk at a clinic once. Smart dude.

I guess the point I was trying to make, or one of them is most of their linebackers are smallish 220's and 230's.

Also Unrein's whole career has been in a 3-4.

Some of the guys you listed are not worth the 7th pick of the draft by some people's standards. It was a misleading post at best. I think Ward does play taller than his height.


I think Ward is as good or better than everyone on that list. Or coule be.

You're kind of Bootzing it here, USC. I was making the point that smaller corners than Ward are among the best in the league. That's all. Saying that Ward being 5'10 3/4ths and 191 lbs is a reason not to draft him is folly.

No one's saying that. I like Ward, I don't think Ward size is a reason not to draft him. I'd be very happy drafting Ward. But it's a far walk from that to him being BPA at #7. It'd have to be a doomsday draft to justify Ward at #7.

I go Minkah Fitzpatrick. He is only the 3rd player ever to win the Thorpe award, nations best defensive back, and the bednarik award for best overall defensive player. The only two others are Charles Woodson and Patrick Peterson. I want this player on my team.

Ryan Smith is delegated to being a developmental and situational fourth corner because that's where he belongs and we never run dime.

I wouldn't complain much about Fitz, Vea, or James. All are good players. Not who I'd go with in this scenario, but I get it.

I'd loudly complain about Davenport, don't like him one bit. Edmunds would be a headscratcher; do you plan to make him a pass rusher? I don't like Jackson, I think he'll bust.


Basically...EXACTLY this.

Our OBVIOUS weakness, as of TODAY, is CB.

IF one of the "big 3" are there...especially Chubb or Nelson...you have to jump but other than that? We need secondary help BIG TIME. IF the staff feels like Fitz can play (situationally) at CB, then you go there. Otherwise, you take the best CB in the draft. That's Ward. VH3 is the nickel. Bada-Bing...decent secondary.

Davenport would be a MASSIVE reach at 7. Edmunds makes ZERO sense. James "could" be the stud of this draft in a few years...or he could bust. I don't make that guess at 7. I probably would make it at 10/11/12.

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCE, do I take a RB at 7, in this draft. REGARDLESS of who the RB is.

This is honestly the only reasonable scenario where I'm upset as we head into the home stretch. I'll be thrilled with Chubb or Ward or a trade back. I'll be content with Nelson or Fitz. I'll keep an open mind on James, just because he MIGHT be a transcendent talent (same reason I drafted him for "my" Browns.) But a running back at #7 would be dumb for most of the same reasons a kicker in the 2nd was dumb. Especially in a draft that'll probably produce 6-10 good ones.

That said, I'm totally expecting it.

This is such an unpredictable draft. Other that atleast 3 QBs going early I don't know who is going where.

I'm coming back full circle with Fitzpatrick for the Bucs. He's at #4 for me after spending some time the past few weeks entertaining Ward.

I still have Chubb - Nelson/Barkley in front as my preferences. But Fitz would be a great addition to our secondary. Put him at CB or at Safety and the entire defensive backfield is better, which imo is the worst position group on the roster currently.

I had some hesitation about Fitz b/c if he's not a CB in the than he's very similar to the type of FS we already have in Justin Evans. But with the way the NFL is these days with contact rules I think having two ultra athletic Safeties who can also tackle in the box could provide a huge schematic advantage. He and Justin Evans could both cover 1v1 at times allowing a much mroe aggressive front 7. Plus with the amount of space those guys can cover in the back-end it would mean that much less our CBs would have to.

Excited for the draft. Bucs are going to get a really good prospect at 7 if we stick and pick so I'm not going to disappointed regardless of who we draft.

Barkley is arguably the best prospect in this draft. Passing on him because of position, when picking at #7, would be foolish.

I feel like the whole rbf thing has turned people off to him unnecessarily.

Agreed...

If he is sitting there at #7 and both Chubb and Nelson are gone AND we can't get a kings ransom to move back, it's a no-brainer to select him...

Some believe that his college production/tape show that he's not an every down bell cow type back. He's closer to Kamara/Reggie Bush/ McCaffrey than ADP or Gurley. As I said, I hope that Koetter would be able to use him properly, because in college he was not the type of back to carry a team between the tackles. He needed space to succeed.

Some don't believe that any RB should be picked with a high pick citing all of the successes in later rounds, but if you believe a player is an absolute game changer, especially at a position of need, you take them IMO.

I rag on Barkley a lot, but just because I don't think he's on the level that others do historically. I still have him in my top 5 after Chubb, Nelson, Fitz, and Ward and really he's right there with Ward for me.

In other words, a part time, situational player who'll need a helper to do the things he can't. Exactly what you want with the #7 pick when you have a half-dozen starting jobs up for grabs.
