What a week.
The latest batch of NFL prospects have dashed, jumped, thrown, caught, rushed and worn funny t-shirts with giant Iron Man-esque chest pieces all week, and have been dissected by media analyst, who all have wildly varying opinions on who is and who isn't a top flight prospect in the NFL.
Of course, I have my own opinions. And things have changed a lot since the last mock draft; running back Clinton Portis, offensive guard Derrick Dockery and defensive end/outside linebacker Andre Carter have been released from the team. The Redskins added veteran free safety O.J Atogwe to the football team and have set the stage to take the team into a more youthful, character driven direction.
Though CBA talks have been extended, there will be no transactions allowed to be made until a new one is in place, which makes trading players unlikely. On that note, the Redskins don't have a whole lot in the way of trade value anymore, and seem more likely to release the few players they have left that will command decent trade value (Donovan McNabb and Albert Haynesworth) or keep them (Fred Davis, as head coach Mike Shanahan has gone on record as saying that the tight end position is the only position where the Redskins have real depth).
So this mock draft will take a look mainly at trading picks up and down to find what is the most feasible way on draft day for the Washington Redskins to improve their football team.
For the sake of argument; however, I do say the Redskins move disgruntled defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fourth and fifth-round pick. Andy Reid seems just insane enough to think he can get Haynesworth to work hard in Philly.
