Charlie, your saying the Redskins, a team who has 4 defensive lineman under contract for next year assuming Hatcher retires and Knighton, Kearse, and Gholston leave, and the same team that ranked 31st in the league in yard per rush allowed, don't have a huge need at D-Line?
Vasquez should be cut, bring back Mathis who would probably love to come back and put him at RG, then put Max Garcia who will have a whole offseason at guard, Peyton gone is a 21 million in cap a space so we can give almost all of it to Von, leaving another 20 with cutting Vasquez to add another 4 million to get up to 20. Then about 7.5 to Brandon Marshall, 7.5 to Brock, and then use the last 5 to try and help replace the guys we lost
2009 NFL Draft Prospects: <br> Andre Smith Profile
Andre Smith, 6-4/330
Andre Smith's Scouting Report By Matt McGuire
Strengths: Extremely strong and has nice bulk and wide base... Dominant run blocker and is a finisher... Nasty demeanor ... Generates leverage ... Natural knee bender ... Plays hard for four quarters ... Can get to the second level ... Solid in pass protection and displays awareness ... Strong hands ... Good technician against the run.
Weaknesses: Struggles with speed more often than the consensus opinion ... Sluggish kick step and tends to cross over his feet ... Average agility ... Doesn't have the explosive athleticism of an elite left tackle ... Major weight concerns in the past ... Lacks balance in pass protection occasionally ... Does not have long arms.
Summary: Smith has the ability to play left tackle in the NFL, but I do not think he is the top-five draft pick everyone else does. I have seen inconsistencies in games and quite frankly, I was surprised at what I saw when I watched him on film. He's an amazing run-blocker, but I do not give him a top-eight grade at the moment. He will likely go in the top five, but I feel he is one of the more overrated players in the country. My current draft grade is Smith is a solid first-round pick and not the elite player most Draftniks grade him as.
Player Comparison: Flozell Adams. Adams is overrated as a pass protector, but a phenomenal run blocker.
