Redskins downplay talk of LSU quarterback
Question of the Day
Washington Redskins vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato confirmed an ESPN.com report today stating LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell will meet with the team’s coaches and front office on April 10.
But that doesn’t mean the Redskins have an interest in drafting Russell, considered by many experts as the draft’s top prospect.
“We have 25 guys coming in to visit during the first three weeks of April,” Cerrato said. “Whoever are considered the top players in this draft, you’ll see all of them coming to visit. We have to cover our bases in case we trade up, trade back or stay.”
The Redskins have the sixth overall pick in the draft, which is April 28-29.
Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn, Wisconsin offensive tackle Joe Thomas and Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson are also scheduled to visit Redskin Park even though those positions aren’t areas of need.
“We want to talk to everybody just so we get a chance to know them,” Cerrato said.
The Redskins, according to NFL.com, are also traveling to Columbus, Ohio to work out Ted Ginn Jr., on April 16 and bringing quarterback Jason Campbell along. Because of a leg injury sustained in the Super Bowl, Ginn won’t work out for teams until April 12.
