    Process of elimination...

    -Fisher has a history of not picking OL'man high.
    -We want to trade out of #2... no Clowney.
    -We have starting LT's but need depth (Ala trade down picks.
    -Watkins posted himself in a Rams uni after we vetted him... make it what you want

    Watkins makes the most sense unless trades back too far. In that case we keep trading back and stock pile a BUNCH of second round picks. I say we draft Watkins.

    Nah... Not even saying that. But he might. Long is coming off another injury. Our RT looks promising but..... Do you REALLY want to put that low of a value on our QB's blind side? I don't. But I also don't claim to know what Fisher sees/knows in reality. If Long is out for the first part of the season - then how valuable is a LT or RT so that Barks can swing over? I also don't think any of us have EVER heard Fish discount the idea of taking an O-lineman in the first. Has he ever been put in that position? I don't think he has.

    I admit I'm not 100% confident in Long's health, but a top ten pick is too much to invest in a "just in case, and out of position until then" scenario. You need to spend that pick on someone who will be performing their intended job right away (at least hopefully).

    There should be good "backup plan" tackles to draft later. And I think Fisher/Snead know that if they were to pick a top 10 tackle, they'd be sending the message of admitting the Long signing was a major mistake.

    Unfortunately, neither of us (or any of the rest of us in this most epic battle since the video of "Love Is A Battlefield") will get any satisfaction until May... unless the Combine changes minds positively or negatively about these guys.

    That's fine. And maybe we do what you suggest. But we are all merely posting our assumptions and opinions. It makes the most sense to YOU. But others don't see the guarantee at LT. Nor the depth to swing your RT to LT and have either position secured. Those are huge positions for our offense. Some might say more important than a 6'1" 200 lb receiver that has had drop issues.

    Yeah... but my opinion is awesome so there... ;)

    I try to kill all the buzz that I don't support because I feel I'm fighting the good fight. Gives me a sense of security in a weird way, lol.

    Plus I just love to debate in general. Competition brings out the best in all of us.

    I don't follow Sammy Watkins' social media, but I wouldn't be surprised. He probably just posted whatever pictures fans tweeted him, he's just happy to be going to the NFL, the uniform doesn't really matter, imo.

    And if he put out a tweet with him in a Redskins uniform and the caption "Ha ha, just kidding.", he is obviously the most awesome draft choice EVAR and we MUST pick him. ;)
