Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on my one and only mock draft of the 2013 draft season. It got a little out of control. When it is finished, it appears as though it will be over 17,000 words. Tomorrow, I’ll be publishing a separate post for each individual pick, going from 1-35, and then skipping to the Redskins’ pick at 51. In other words, there will be 36 separate posts here tomorrow, which I’ll begin at 9am and continue every 15 minutes throughout the day until 6pm.
Let’s just say I’m praying some team doesn’t come out of nowhere to make some sort of ridiculous trade that screws up all my work.
I’ll also be shooting the ish all day on Twitter, so feel free to fire away comments about how dumb my picks are. Oh, and follow me while you’re at it, in case you’re not already. And if you’re not on Twitter, why not? It’s probably not what you think it is. Sign up.
• The Redskins met with Quentin Jammer last night. He turns 34 in June. My guess is that the Redskins think of him as a safety at this point in his career. DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson will start, EJ Biggers will be the nickle, and Richard Crawford remains a player who can potentially develop into nice depth. There’s also some hope that Chase Minnifield can put his injury history in the past. If there’s a player the Skins like in the draft, they could absolutely look to get a long term answer in place, but I don’t see the purpose in adding a declining vet in Jammer to that mix. This situation feels different than the Skins’ interest in Antoine Winfield, who was still playing at a high level last season.
• Rolando McClain got arrested again last night. Chalk another off the field incident up next to his past transgressions. There was interest in him from Giants fans in the 2010 draft, and then just a week or two ago when he became a free agent.
• Fun idea by Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram. He imagined a disbanded Cowboys team and the current roster of players being offered up to the rest of the NFL in a dispersal draft. I’m not sure I agree with some of his picks though. If I’m the Eagles, I’m not taking Brandon Carr when Tyron Smith, Dez Bryant and Bruce Carter are still on the board. Also not sure the Jags are going to pass on Tony Romo to take Anthony Spencer.
• Football Outsiders did their “State of the Team” for the Eagles. Disappointing, sloppy work. They see 2 stars on the team (not arguing there should be more), and Trent Cole is one of them? But here’s the paragraph that really bugged me:
