Tonight is the night that we find out what the Skins will do with their 10th overall pick in the NFL Draft. There are countless ways they can screw this up, but hey, there’s always a chance they’ll do something productive with their first pick! Just look at the last two years, right? Those weren’t so bad! So, briefly, a look at the best and worst case scenarios for tonight’s festivites.
ABSOLUTE WORST CASE: The Skins trade up to select Blaine Gabbert. There’s been talk that they could move to No. 4 to get Gabbert. This would involve losing picks, which is why the Skins would be extra interested.
REALISTIC WORST CASE: They stay at 10 and pick either Jake Locker or Julio Jones.
ABSOLUTE BEST CASE: They trade back, get more picks and use them to fill needs on both sides of the line.
REALISTIC BEST CASE: They stay at 10 and pick the best available lineman. There are a lot of them.
With 10 minutes between picks, we should know who the newest Redskin is sometime around 9:45 tonight. Try your best to keep your mind occupied with happy thoughts until then.
