Still, Ballard got a pretty good deal.EDTShareTweetShareShareWashington’s 2020 second rounder is more valuable than people think.Photo by Frederick Breedon/Getty ImagesChris Ballard is one of the best general managers in the NFL, that is well-known by now. However, plenty of fans are disappointed that the Colts traded back out of the first round and only got two 2nd round picks in return (one this year, one next year) from the Washington Redskins.The Colts did well on trading away the #26 pick, as all of the valuable interior defensive lineman were already gone (Tillery was still there, but he is not in the same class as Wilkins, Williams or Oliver), and the other positions the Colts need (CB, WR, Edge) still have plenty of quality players left. In fact, according to the Draft guide, the top 3 cornerbacks are still on the board, and also the top 5 wide receivers.Washington’s 2nd rounder next year also looks to have plenty of value, as the Redskins are not poised for a breakout 2019 season. Their roster is mediocre, their schedule is extremely unforgiving, and they will most likely have a rookie starting at quarterback. Washington’s rosterPhoto by Scott Taetsch/Getty ImagesWhile the Redskins’ roster does have some above-average players like Trent Williams, Jordan Reed, or Brandon Scherff, they lack elite talent at the skill positions and their defense is aging and not well put together. Rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins can’t be expected to succeed when his starting running back is 34 years old, his backup is a rookie coming off an ACL tear, his #1 receiver’s name is Josh Doctson (whose career has been uninspiring to say the least), there is not much depth behind Doctson, and his tight end is unreliable. The only thing Haskins has going for him is the quality of his offensive line Denico Autry Jersey , even though they took a step back last year.The Redskin’s defense has some blue-chip-caliber players, but overall, the flaws and weaknesses are evident. Washington’s secondary is depleted. Josh Norman is nowhere close the player he used to be, Landon Collins is average at best defending the pass, DRC is getting older and slower, and there is not much more to write home about after that. Washington’s front 7 looks solid, with players like Da’Ron Payne, Jonathan Allen, Ryan Anderson and now rookie Montez Sweat, but the level of talent might not be enough to mask the coverage deficiencies. Washington’s scheduleNBC Sports WashingtonMaking assumptions about a team’s schedule on April is not smart, because there are always surprising and under-performing teams, but the Redskins’ schedule looks quite tough right now. Realistically, the Redskins could easily finish the season 5-11 or 6-10, which should be bad enough for a top 12 pick. Their division (aside from the Giants) is very difficult, and they face some tough opponents like the Patriots, Jets, 49ers, and Vikings.Considering the Redskins ended their last season ice-cold (also due to the fact they had Josh Johnson starting at quarterback), it is safe to assume there are plenty of flaws on the team, and so far they have not been fixed in the offseason, aside from Haskins.Rookie quarterbackPhoto by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesEven though Haskins looks like the most pro-ready quarterback in the entire class, keep in mind this is still a guy that started just 22 games in his entire collegiate career. Haskins has all the qualities to become an elite NFL quarterback, but he is nowhere near that just yet, which is why his first season could be a rocky one. The lack of surrounding talent also does not help and could lead to the Redskins’ offense becoming downright awful.Overall, I do not understand why the Redskins pulled the trigger on the trade. They are in no position to win now, and are a few seasons away from building a truly solid roster, so why trade away valuable draft capital just to get a pass rusher that was not even the best defensive lineman on his own team? Ballard got a pretty good deal Nyheim Hines Color Rush Jersey , and the Colts are in a very good position right now.The team has three picks in a second round that appears to be full of talent, and also got an undervalued 2020 second-rounder in the process. LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Andrew Luck could recall a critical error the Indianapolis Colts made on almost every possession, some he made.When it mattered most, he was almost perfect. Luck shook off two interceptions and capped a methodical drive with his second touchdown of the game to help the Colts beat the Washington Redskins 21-9 Sunday and pick up their first victory of the season. Luck was 21 of 31 for 179 yards and had a TD pass in a 25th consecutive game, the longest active streak in the NFL. He was 7 of 8 for 62 yards on a 13-play, 75-yard drive that culminated in a Luck-to-T.Y. Hilton score that put Indianapolis (1-1) up 21-9 early in the fourth quarter.“When we needed to, we put a drive together and got points,” Luck said. “On the longer drive where we ended up with a touchdown, everybody, we all just did our jobs and we did them well.”Executing first-year coach Frank Reich’s creative play-calling scheme, Luck also found Eric Ebron for a touchdown on the game’s opening drive. The balanced offensive attack with 27 rushing and 31 passing attempts kept the Redskins’ defense off balance and allowed Luck to pick apart a secondary that struggled in coverage and tackling.The Colts avoided starting 0-2 for the first time since 2013.“We felt like we let one slip last week,” Hilton said. “In the third quarter we kind of went back to our ways and then we picked it up in the fourth quarter and got it going.”After putting up a Week 1-best 182 rushing yards, the Redskins (1-1) put up just 65 yards on 22 carries. Adrian Peterson was limited to 20 yards on 11 carries, and receiver Jamison Crowder was actually Washington’s leading rusher with 29 yards on two sweep plays.Dropped balls and shoddy offensive line play hampered QB Alex Smith on a day he was 33 of 46 for 292 yards.“Our running game suffered and we were pretty much one-dimensional,” coach Jay Gruden said. “We didn’t have a very good run plan. … Didn’t give (Peterson) any good looks.LEONARD TIMEColts rookie linebacker Darius Leonard was a disruptive force in run and pass defense. The second-round pick had a game-high 18 tackles, sacked Smith and forced Jordan Reed to fumble in the fourth quarter, the play that sent fans to the exits.“He’s been doing that all camp,” defensive lineman Al Woods said. “It was a matter of time before he brought it out. Kudos to him: He brought it out at the right time and we love him for that.”EMPTY SEATSGood seats in the second deck were still available well into the second half in the first non-sellout of a Redskins home game since 1967. Fans who did make the trip booed the Redskins at the two-minute warning in the second quarter and off the field at halftime.“If you don’t give them anything to cheer about, they’re probably going to boo,” said left tackle Trent Williams, who was twice flagged for false starts.The paid attendance was listed as 57,013.INJURIESColts: DL Hassan Ridgeway left in the second quarter with a calf injury. … CB Quincy Wilson was evaluated for a concussion and did not return. … LT Anthony Castonzo was out again with a hamstring injury.Redskins: RG Brandon Scherff was evaluated for a right knee injury and returned. … Williams went down with a knee injury and said he still has complications from offseason surgery. He returned to the game. … WR Maurice Harris was inactive for a second straight week with a concussion.QUOTABLEReich on blown leads: “There’s probably a moment in there where some people are saying, ‘Oh here we go again’ when the third quarter starts. That thought probably went through everybody’s mind. That’s fair. That’s fair until we prove otherwise.”UP NEXTColts: Visit the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.Redskins: Host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
