Shanahan Talks the Draft and the Latest with McNabb

Mike Shanahan talked to the Washington Post about a number of topics, among them what the latest is with QB Donovan McNabb.

On the Redskins’ top draft needs:

“Well, I think people see us and they know we could have help on the offensive line. We need some help at wide receiver, quarterback situation as well. You’re always looking for that young guy that can possibly be the franchise guy. On defense, we’ve got [needs in] the interior defensive front, you know switching over to the 3-4. Also, the linebacker position [is a need area] as well. So there are a number of directions that we could go.”

On Donovan McNabb’s status with the Redskins:

“Well, I’ve talked about this a number of times before. I talked about it in Indianapolis. I’m not going to go through that scenario until after the draft. And after the draft, I’m going to talk about it some and I’m staying with that game plan for obvious reasons.”

On wide receiver prospects A.J. Green and Julio Jones:

“I think that’s the two big names up there. Everybody’s got them going one-two. I think everyone was surprised when Jones ran the 4.38 [forty-yard dash] over at Indianapolis; it was very impressive. When you look at A.J.’s game film, he’s just one of those natural receivers. There are a lot of different opinions on them, but I think they are two excellent receivers that are going to play for a lot of years. Jones is very physical both in the running game and carrying the football. I look at Green, he has experience running all of the different routes. Those wide receivers have some strengths and some weaknesses. It’ll be interesting to see which one goes first.”
