Good pick as Feeney went next to the Chargers.

Why? Both of the players we picked likely would have been gone at our pick.

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

Rick's presser:

Interesting answer to the question regarding his leaving negative influences behind in Miami: he knows Xavier and Teddy.
I wonder if they will take him under their wing. I have to say, I am a bit nervous about Cook off the field. On the field, I'm excited.

I agree..Philly would have been in on Cook and Cincy took Mixon. SD was going oline, and it would have been a long wait for eflein to fall

I'm actually not too worried about the off field stuff, the more I read the more it sounds like it wasn't a huge deal. Some trouble in high school and acquitted (in 25 minutes) in college. Sounds like a lot of the negative press going around was by a "runner" that was supposedly false.

I'm more worried about his injuries and ball security.

So funny enough I watched this video on Cook last night hoping one of my teams would draft him.

Offseason Goal: Draft durable, tough, intelligent offensive lineman who are dependable technicians and avoid penalties aka drive killers.

I like the trades. I like the picks.
I have a good friend who is a well respected high school football coach, his dad played for the redskins for many years, and he is a realist. He is a skins fan and wanted them to pick cook at 17 for them. Think we did ok today. Breathe easy people!
