Some call it the most overhyped sporting event of the year, but I really enjoy the NFL Draft. I'm going to miss most of it to the Festival Young Company and the Bard Bash, though.
Looks like my Redskins are holding onto the sixth overall pick. I'd prefer that they trade down for multiple early-mid-round picks, but if they must keep it I'm really hoping they'll pick up Louisville DT Amobi Okoye, partially because it's a lot of fun to say Amobi Okoye.
My fear is that they're going to go for the splashy pick, Louisiana safety LaRon Landry, who's too similar to Sean Taylor to be the right choice. The Redskins need help on the line, and they really need multiple young depth players all across the board.
You Panthers and Patriots fans out there have hopes and dreams for this draft?
EDIT 1:18 PM: The Redskins held onto the pick and used it on LaRon Landry. The good: it's a bargain to get the player many considered to be the best defensive player in the draft at #6. The combination of Landry and Sean Taylor makes the prospect of going across the middle against the Redskins a very frightening prospect. The bad: Landry's going to be tackling a lot of running backs making 12-yard gains if the 'Skins don't do a heck of a lot better in run-stopping on the line.
Side note: It's rough rooting for a Redskin named Landry.
