With a lot of the description here — height, weight, swing tackle, possible late bloomer — is anyone else getting some Ty Nsekhe vibes?

It’s hard to get too excited about a swing tackle when we don’t have a starting LEFT tackle, but I don’t mind bringing this guy in to compete with Christian to be the top depth option. He’s got the athletic chops, and he seems to have fared well as a pass blocker last season at least.

Would be interesting to have him learn behind another late bloomer who was a tremendous athlete in Jason Peters. 

No. Nobody is. We are just screaming at each other for not paying Austin Hooper.

I agree. I like it for what it is. A cheap, depth signing for a position of need.

Alex Smith taking up over 10% of our cap is infuriating.

Some of you are conditioned to only accept expensive players.

We need help at OT overall. We need depth, especially a guy who can fill in at swing tackle. Hasn’t been the same since Ty Neskhe left. Can’t rely on Geron Christian.

Signing a guy under 30 with experience as a swing tackle for under $3M/yr is not a bad thing.

No, it's not, but as @MKnight82 stated above, positions that we've filled so far in free agency are positions that you normally fill in the draft.  Positions like swing tackle, pass-catching running back specialist, backup G/C and special teams linebacker.  

I know the Redskins can't fill every hole in the draft in one year, and a lot of these deals are only covering 1-2 years, and as you said, getting a tackle with starting experience is never a bad thing.  But it's really disconcerting that we have to rely on free agency to fill this many holes that the draft should be filling for us..........and by the consensus of opinions going around, this isn't something we can lump onto Bruce Allen.  The draft guys are still in the building.

Fair point. Missing on guys like Cravens, Doctson, Christian, Anderson and others has really hampered this organization. We wouldn’t have nearly the amount of holes if those guys could be just serviceable.

I’d like to see us use that $25 million we have or so - minus the Rookie salaries - on a vet CB(Logan Ryan, Darby, Rhodes or Breeland), a vet WR, LT (Peters, Beachum, Penn) and another TE like Nick Vanette.

The good thing is that while it's unlikely, Anderson & Cravens still have more time to prove they can be serviceable players, the both flashed a little last year vs Carolina. Let's hope they prove something this year.

Missing out on some spots top to bottom really hurts.  Teams consistently at the top of the league draft well in the later rounds for depth, and therefore can afford the foray into free agency to get an elite talent.  They keep churning it over once they get too expensive and keep costs down.  We've always had a failing for that.  I'm not saying that every late round pick needs to be Matt Ioanaidis or Kyshown Jarrett, but they need to hit on more quality depth pieces.  And our record for years with second round picks, who should be starters in the NFL, is really bad as well.
