    Rambo imprressing Redskins

    Still wondering why we passed on him late in the draft. Assume it has to do with his prior drug issues.

    He was one of my favorites at UGA, but I am not sold on him at the NFL level. I think he was a decent risk deep in the draft.

    I thought the same thing during the draft. However, you can't judge a draft by who you 'didn't get', especially before TC has even begun.

    He is a true Center fielder safety, not afraid to lay out someone and with a great nose for the ball. We could have used him. But he is a knucklehead and not fond of Tackling guys coming downhill so he is far from a sure Thing...

    Because the moron failed multiple drug tests? Because you can't count on idiots who cant put drugs down even when they know it will cost them millions and almost their careers, like with this numbnut?

    Even though he is not as tall or big, Rambo reminds me a lot of Ernest Shazor. Both safeties with cool names. Both highly productive in big-time college programs. Both generating some pre-season buzz.

    Both out of the NFL (I'm guessing) after 1 season.

    Jags said that Cyprien was really impressing them. Ravens said Elam was really impressing them. Rex will come out and say that Richardson/Milliner/Smith/Winters are really impressing him.

    Just gotta see how they play with the pads on. I liked Rambo but Aboushi was a solid pick-up in the 5th round.

    Would be unusual for a PR dept to sanction a "draftee/UDFA has been abysmally sh!t so far and it's clearly already a mistake" story

    Always thought Rambo was overrated personally but as a UDFA worth a look
