NFL Draft 2011: Danny & Shanny Have Their Poker Faces On

I thought about writing a post telling you guys whom I hoped the Redskins would pick versus who I thought they’d pick. Ultimately, I decided that you guys wouldn’t give 2 shits about what I thought. There’s enough mock drafts out there to make you overdose. Not only do we have Mel Kiper and Todd Mckshay telling us what’s going to happen, we got every swinging dick with a blog telling us what they think is going to happen. I’ve been watching football for over 30 years and blogging about it for 3+ years…I know my place, I’m not a scout and I can’t break down potential NFL players. (I think I can, but I’m wise enough to know I can’t)

If you’re a blogger and you’ve written posts about a player’s attributes and intangibles…well you’re a tool. You’re probably currently clocked in at some 9-5 job and you’re secretly posting your “breakdown” of said player before someone catches you writing about it in your cube. Don’t get fired from your day job because there is no NFL team that’s going to hire you for your scouting skills…everyone has access to Google.

Me personally? I hope the Redskins trade down and add another 2nd or 3rd round pick. I know we need help at OLB/DE, O-line, RB, WR, QB and CB. I have my choices for the top players at those positions and I hope the Redskins end up with a couple of them. I’m sure the trading up for Blaine Gabbert is a smokescreen and I hope the Redskins can play this poker game like Booger from Revenge of the Nerds. That is all.

Cheers and Hail
