First RoundPick #27 - FS Scott Brinkman (5'11" / 206) from South Dakota
Washington, convinced that they could get no 1st round DL worth the investment, Washington made a splash trade, giving away their 1st rounder for FS Scott Brinkman from the Giants, 100/100 FS with a 20% chance of retiring after the season. The value of the trade will be determined by the number of years that Washington can squeeze out of Brinkman. As a result of the trade, stud FS Travis Alfano will be moving to #3 CB, giving the team 3 CBs with ratings of 80 or higher. If worse comes to worst, Washington has Brinkman just for one year, which shouldn't hurt, because most players were becoming FAs after this season, anyways.Second RoundPick #39 - Brett Luther, WR (5'11" / 198) from Michigan
Washington traded the 7th pick of round 2 for Brett Luther, a 2nd year, 23 year old WR from New England. Luther gained +5 to his future rating last year, and Author C. Currier, owner of Washington, expects that improvement to continue. Luther should prove invaluable to the team for the future.Pick #59 - Stephan Dick, RDE (6'4" / 276) from Illinois
Washington traded away their other 2nd round pick, along with a 2nd rounder the following year, and Paul Tinker, the current LDE, for Stephan Dick. Stephan Dick is a 3rd year, and only 24 years old. He will immediately improve Washington's stop unit. He's improved by +8 to his future rating in one year, and that momentum is expected to carry.
In all, I think I overpaid a bit for Dick, but I would rate this draft as an A- so far.
