Ninth Pick

After losing a couple of possible choices for the ninth pick, Joe Gibbs decided on Carlos Rogers to fill a corner that needed it bad. Rogers comes from Auburn University. This is the second straight season that Gibbs has used the first round pick on a defensive back.

"I think he is a combination of a shutdown corner and a very physical guy. I think he fits in good with us. It's going to be exciting to have him on the football team."

Joe Gibbs on Draft

Recently in a press conference, Head coach Joe Gibbs stated his intentions for the Redskins with the upcoming draft. The Redskins currently have the ninth draft pick in the first round. There will be a media session upcoming between the tops in the organization to discuss further plans.

"Right now we've had no discussions with anyone about trading away the ninth pick (in Saturday's NFL draft). Are we considering any options we are presented with? Yes, we'll consider anything, but no one has presented a compelling scenario."
- Coach Joe Gibbs

DRAFT WHISPERS:

- from FOXSports.com

If the team can get a mid- to late-round pick for WR Rod Gardner, it likely will trade him. The club lacks a second-round pick, and if it could move down in the first round and pick up a second-round selection, it might make that deal. But a third- or fourth-round pick might be the best it could get in return. Coach Joe Gibbs' frustration with the offense shouldn't be underestimated. He might add a front-line wide receiver to compete with David Patten for the starting job.

Patrick Ramsey

Coming onto his fourth consecutive year with the Cincinnati Bengals, Patrick Ramsey is looking forward to the coming season. Ramsey, who has started in all four years, has to focus on some offseason training.

With optional training open March 21st, Ramsey is looking at preparing himself properly before the season.

“My mindset right now is to just continue to improve. Last year, there was improvement during the course of the season, but I want to begin that process now. That'll put me at an accelerated level when I start the season. Obviously, you're going to learn something in every game you play. I want to be the guy who leads us to great things and turns this thing around. I want to be a part of the success and I want to be out there on the field when it happens.”
