McNabb Traded, Likely To Shake Up Draft

Adam Schefter is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles have traded Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins.

We’ve been bouncing around plenty of scenarios for the top of the first round with a lot of those dealing with Washington being in the market for a quarterback, specifically Sam Bradford or Jimmy Clausen.  With McNabb in the fold it’s unlikely they will draft any player that will not play immediately.

The question now becomes, is that player Tennessee’s Eric Berry?

Berry has already visited with the franchise that is looking to fill the void left by the tragic murder of Sean Taylor in 2007.

In Taylor and LaRon Landry, the Redskins have shown a willingness in recent years to roll the dice on a safety in the top 10.

With an offense built to win now, Mike Shanahan could decide he wants Russell Okung to improve the offensive line but there doesn’t seem to be any one player in the draft that will immediately produce for Washington as much as Berry.
