McNabb means OT for Skins

With Donovan McNabb going to the Redskins via trade, Washington is almost assured of taking an offensive tackle and NOT a quarterback with the fourth overall pick.

That means the run on tackles will almost certainly start at fourth overall at the latest. Detroit is still a possibility to start the run early at two as they’re considering moving left tackle Jeff Backus inside to left guard, though how they could say no to Suh or McCoy is beyond me.

So assuming Washington takes an OT fourth (probably Okung), the Chiefs will likely take another at five, then Seattle at six to replace Walter Jones and possibly the Raiders at eight, it leaves Buffalo with the distinct possibility of missing out on one of the top four OTs in the draft. And there is a bit of a drop off after the top four.

You’ve just got to hope the Raiders like Bruce Campbell’s work out numbers and draft him above his value range 22-32, leaving one of the top four tackles for Buffalo to take.
