The Redskins draft principles seem more focused on the best player available, but beyond that, players who show intelligence, a love for the game, and toughness...so all that considered...
S MICHAEL CAPUTO - WISCONSIN
Ragland was a easy pick at 21 for me. The ILB position needs a strong investment if the Redskins want to find stability on defense. Though the same goes for DT, Ragland was the best player on the board, not to mention the best true ILB in the draft.
I was surprised Derrick Henry was still on the board late in the 2nd round, and I would imagine the Redskins would be too....just too tempting to pass up on.
Boehm would address a need at C, besides he is likely the toughest offensive lineman in the draft.
Bush was off my radar until recently.3yer who is a McC kind of guy, through and through.
Valentine is big and freakishly athletic...so why is he still around at pick 232? He has some conditioning issue and needs some coaching-up to harness his potential. Big value, low risk to draft him in the 7th round AND it address a need for a big, interior D-lineman.
Caputo is tough as nails. Not the fastest guy, he always seems to be around the play anyway. Though I think they pop on a earlier FS, Caputo could prove to be a great ST player, rotational DB/SS/FS and insurance behind that earlier pick. Totally McC guy.
Enjoy the Draft!
Hail to the Redskins!
