ASHBURN, Va. -- This will not be a glamorous draft for the Washington Redskins.General manager Charlie Casserly said this week that he doesn't plan to be selecting any running backs or quarterbacks tomorrow and Sunday when the NFL's 62nd draft takes place.Washington has the 17th pick in the first round and nine choices total in the seven rounds, including a fifth-round pick from the New Orleans Saints for the Heath Shuler signing.Of course, there is always a chance the team could make some draft-day trades.

With Michael Westbrook rocking Norv Turner's usually tight Washington Redskins ship by attacking teammate Stephen Davis and Sean Gilbert still holding out, the atmosphere is not right for a nationally televised season opener tonight against the Carolina Panthers.Now Turner can only hope his team is ready."We haven't had a great continuity in the preseason," said Turner. "So there's a little uncertainty."Westbrook has everything it takes to be a great wide receiver, but he hasn't been able to escape controversy since he was the team's No. 1 draft choice in 1995.

Worst call: The Ravens passed on first down at the Washington 1 with 10 seconds left in the second half. QB Tony Banks was intercepted on a pass he never should have thrown. Running is what this offense does best at this point, not passing. Best regrouping: Redskins RB Stephen Davis, who was held to 2 rushing yards in the first half, but hammered for 89, including the winning 33-yard TD run, in the second. Worst retreat: The Ravens, who went from first down at the Redskins' 34 to fourth-and-33 in the fourth quarter with two sacks allowed.
