ok, wtf? TWO Edge-rushers for the Redskins? Do you even know who is on the Redskins' roster? I was gonna comment after the first one, but decided not to. However, A SECOND EDGE-RUSHER? Preston Smith is quite good and only 23. The Redskins signed Kerrigan to a big contract extension. Clearly the top two spots are on lockdown. Question mark: Junior Galette. Can he return from a second torn achilles and provide a spark at DPR? We'll see, but he's more than just a journeyman edge rusher. Now, would it be nice to have some more depth? Sure, but that doesn't mean the Redskins should bypass their glaring needs at LG, C, and DL, GLARING needs, just to get DEPTH. Not a starter, but DEPTH. Safety, ILB, and RB. Just some more positions of need for you.
Drake Nevis, DT, LSU - Scouting Report
Height: 6-1. Weight: 298. Projected 40 Time: 4.92. Combine 40 Time: 4.97. Pro Day 40 Time: 4.92. Benchx225: 31. Vertical: 30.5. Arm: 31 1/2. Projected Round (2011): 2-3. 3/15/11: Drake Nevis measured in four pounds heavier at his Pro Day than he did at the Combine, but was still able to drop his 40 time by 0.05.
Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU - Scouting Report
Height: 6-0. Weight: 218. Projected 40 Time: 4.44. Combine 40 Time: 4.32. Pro Day 40 Time: DNP. Benchx225: 15. Vertical: 38. Arm: 32. Projected Round (2011): Top 4 Pick. 3/15/11: Patrick Peterson didn't run the 40 or anything at his Pro Day, but he looked great in the drills once again. He scheduled a private workout with the Denver Broncos. At this point, it'll be a major upset if Peterson falls out of the top four picks.
