THIS IS ONLY MY OPINION!!! I think London Fletceher retires this year before training camp! He was great for us last year and he will be greatly missed, but he has lost a step. I say that with all the respect in the world. He led the league in missed tackels and struggled guarding backs and tight ends. I think he realizes that hes not the player he used to be, and thats why he wont commit to playing next year. ILB is going to be a much bigger need for us than first anticipated.

I have the opposite gut feeling...but if he hangs it up, I like some of the possible FA ILBs. Love Ellerbe from Balt.

That's very true. Hopefully the resign Reed to a stupid contract and Flacco is getting insane money regardless. Maybe they can't afford Ellerbe, a guy can dream, right?

It's why I hope M. Teo is on the board @#51.

I don't care if he has a blow-up doll in his foot locker, or is a Ventriloquist on the side.
He would be the perfect pick @#51, to replace Fletcher or to be mentored for 1 season by Fletcher.

But a top 10 talent dropping that far, is asking a lot.

But our ridiculous political correctness as a society and their hangup on social media, might be enough juice to help it happen. Laughing

I can hope...

Yes, MLB Monte Teo' is my #1 Redskin prospect
OT Kyle Long is my #2

I would hope we wouldn't take Teo. He's a smart thumper who excels in stuffing the run but can struggle in coverage. We already have a player like that, Perry Riley. We need a more athletic MLB who can cover the TE's in the league. Keenan Robinson might be that player. I do like Kyle Long and hope we consider him.

It's Manti, ace. Not Monte. Laughing Pronounced Man-tie. If he fell to our 2nd round pick, I would consider him, but our secondary needs are our primary needs (holy mind blow), which means our LB needs are our secondary needs. Laughing

Apparently the staff loves Keenan Robinson and he will be given first shot to replace London....

If Fletcher is gone Alexander will take over his position and I see is drafting an IlB again, then we will re-sign Kehl to Compete for a spot and possibly go after a FA ILB like Larry Grant from the 49ers.

Oh and Teo being available for us at 53 is laughable

I loved what I saw out of Robinson. His ceiling >>>>>>> Perry Riley's ceiling.

In the modern NFL with everyone passing more and more you're probably right. MLBs who are athletic and can cover are the future of the position. Robinson exhibits these qualities more than Riley.
