    The 53 Man Roster Prediction Thread 2.0

    1.0 is here.

    Also for comparison, Rich Tandler's 2.0 Roster Thread. I'm linking Rich's thread here for a few reasons. First, it's near identical to my picks. Second, Rich posted his before I did mine. Yes, I did look at his out of curiosity and I also take his commentary along with Finlay and Tischler in consideration when I listen to their CSN podcast. That said, these opinions are my own and my explanations probably differ a bit to Rich's opinion. So, I wanted to remove any thoughts ...

    Preseason Game #2 Who I'm Watching

    Originally, this was going to be a longer blog about some other player stuff that I haven't gotten around to giving my opinion, but now this will be about tonight's game since there's more players I plan on watching than I originally predicted.

    Here's the list.

    QB

    Alex Smith - I just want to see him throw a couple of passes in the Burgundy and Gold and see how he looks.

    RB
    At this point, with Guice done and Thompson probably not playing, ...

    F***!!!!!!! ..........And The Silver Lining

    I finished the Redskins @ Patriots game with a generally good feeling.
    The Redskins dominated the 1st half of the game and led 17-3 to the AFC Champion Patriots.

    Now I know what you're thinking: "But Ghost, it's just a preseason game with mostly backups starting.....so who cares."

    Well, think about this for a moment. Only a few years ago, going back to Gruden year one or year two (2014-2015), most likely the Redskins 1st team unit would have been demolished ...

    2018 Draft Evaluations (Throw Out Your Grades)

    So, if you don't feel like reading a long article on the draft, here's a quick summary via anecdote:
    I had to call my former employers the other day for some information and wound up talking to a former co-worker who follows the 'Skins. He asked me what I thought of the draft (back then I was doing the Redskins media/blogging thing for my own site IIWII and Son of Washington) and I told him "They knocked it out of the Park!"

    I'm not going to do a standard draft evaluation ...

    Pre-Draft Scouting Report on Kevin Hogan

    Before you read this post, you may want to check out Redskins Recon's Post-Mortem on Kevin Hogan

    It's not pretty.

    Anyway, I'm going to briefly look at Hogan's pre-draft evaluation from Pro Scouting Guide Ourlads.
    Ourlads is run by former NFL scout Dan Shonka.
    Apparently many of the teams have copies of the annual guide with them at the draft.

    The True Value of Su'a Cravens via The Trade Value Chart


    So, want to know how much Su'a Cravens is really worth to his new team in terms of value?

    Oh sure, we know what the trade was that went down.

    Washington gets: Denver's 4th (109), 5th (142) and 5th (163) and a conditional 2020 6th rd. pick (???)
    Denver gets: Washington's 4th (113), 5th (149) and Su'a Cravens (???)

    But what does that mean value-wise when we're talking ...
