Well about a week ago I posted a FanPost on Hogs Haven, the site of the Redskins, to find out what was going on with Julio Jones. What I found out wasnt terrible news, it just wasnt good. Basically I asked who were they really wanting/who the Skins were expected to get with their 1st round pick. What i got was to me a little suprising. They did unfortunately want Julio and epected to get him basedon the poll. Here are the other options i put up with the results.
Julio Jones- 46 votes
Cam Newton- 9 votes
Jake Locker- 9 votes
Robert Quinn- 29 votes
I didnt expect them to feel so high about Robert Quinn. I thought if it was going to be anyone else than Julio ones it would be a QB. I mean I havent seen Quinn going there in many mocks which might actually be a good thing. Because if they are just starting to talk about him, he could be going up on their draft board. At least thats what I am hoping. So that might give us a chance with Julio. There were some good points made by Skins fans though like, "If we get Julio who would throw to him" or " I think he would be a great pick for us, and he’d certainly be an elite receiver for us for years, but although our receivers are either too young or too old, we’ve got crucial needs in other spots. QB is obviously a position of huge need, another OLB would really create a playmaking LB crew, OL is still a need, and CB could use an upgrade as Rogers is likely out. I’m a Cam Newton guy personally, but I know I’m in the minority. I want us to get our future QB this year, whether in the 1st or 2nd round." and "With so many teams needing a QB this year I feel the Redskins will take a QB with their 1st pick. They will try to trade back but no matter if it’s with the 10th pick or later the Skins will chose a QB. And my money is on the Redskins taking Locker." lastly " Out of the picks you put up I chose Quinn- Like i said b4, you need a trade back option. That’s the “safest” pick." This sorta gives me a little hope but of course they are just fans and arent at the top with the GM and Coach so who knows.
But what do you think?
Do you think we will be able to get Julio or not?
No way, he'll be taken way before us (42 votes)
Yes, I think teams have more important needs to fill (33 votes)
