Many Redskins fans have been asking if Mike Shanahan likes this quarterback or that other player who will be in the pool in next April in the NFL draft.The answer is, whoever youre talking about, he has no idea.Although the draft analysis business has cranked into full gear on the air and on the web, Shanahan has yet to examine a single college prospect and he wont for a few more months.Once you hit January and February, if youre out of the playoffs, youre looking at free agents and grading your own players. And then after you go through the process, you talk during free agency and youre looking at your own players. And then after you go through the process, you talk during free agency and youre looking at your own football team to decide what direction youre going to go. Then after thats done, usually you get back into college scouting.Its not as though the organization is setting draft analysis aside until spring. Weve got people that do that all year, said Shanahan.So if somebody tells you they know what Shanahan is thinking in regards to the draft, be very suspicious. He doesnt even know himself.
