Three Redskins Mock Draft Scenarios
One of our members (skinsfan36) have created three draft scenarios. Scenario #1 has the team staying with each pick. Scenario #2 has the team trading their 2nd round (#34) pick, and Scenario #3 involves Kirk Cousins. Below are his draft scenarios:
Scenario 1: The Redskins stay at each pick and do not make any trades.
2nd (34)–OT Morgan Moses, UVA. The Redskins still want to upgrade the o-line and this is especially true at right tackle. Pauline just a few days ago said, “There is no way Moses gets past the Redskins at 34.” Moses plays a little high at times but this can be corrected, plus he will be on the right side as opposed to the left.
3rd (66)–OLB Demarcus Lawrence, Boise ST. Lawrence is a polished prospect who can provide pressure from many different places. He can play OLB or rush for inside like Lawrence Timmons. On film it looks like if he hit the weight room then the sky is the limit.
4th (102)—S Ahmad Dixon, Baylor. Dixon is now a household name to anyone who has ever watched a Baylor game since he hits a ton and sometimes too high. However, at the same time he has good range and the Skins could interchange him and Thomas when they become the starters in either late 2014 or 2015.
5th (142)–RB Deanthony Thomas, Oregon. Gruden wants a back with hands that can make plays. Thomas is great with the ball in his hands and will also help in return game when needed. Another weapon for RG3.
6th (178)–OG/OC Gabe Ikard, Oklahoma. Ikard is raw but has a lot of tools to work with. He could surprise and win a job sooner than later at right guard or center.
7th (217)–TE Colt Lyerla, Oregon. This is the huge risk/reward pick. Lyerla is a headcase but he is talented and the risk is small in the 7th round.
Priority free agent–OT Matt Hall (Belhaven), S Nickoe Whitley (Miss ST), ILB Stephon Robertson (JMU)
Scenario 2: Skins trade pick 34 for 56, 94, 129, 170
2nd (56)–OT Antonio (Tiny) Richardson, Tennessee. Richardson is a monster in size and will maul people. When I think of an Andre Smith type for Gruden, I think of this guy.
3rd (66)–S Terrence Brooks, FSU. Brooks can play free safety and gives the Skins more youth in the secondary.
3rd (94)–OLB Kareem Martin, UNC. Martin can start out as rotational guy and be ready to start if/when Orakpo walks.
4th (102)–RB Charles Sims, WVU. He probably has the best hands of any RB out of the backfield in this class. Gruden can use him like he used Gio last year with the Bengals.
4th (129)–CB Jaylen Watkins, FLA. Can start in nickel and dime situations and have bigger role in 2015.
5th (142)–DE Brent Urban,UVA. Three technique with a high motor.
5th (170)–OC/OG Gabe Ikard, Oklahoma. See scenario 1.
6th (178)–Nickel Defender Jamea Thomas, Georgia Tech. Thomas is small but is aggressive and played as a free safety and corner for Georgia Tech. Watch him vs. Ebron in 2nd half of UNC game.
7th (217)–ILB Stephon Robertson, JMU. Kind of guy who starts on teams that you have to find a spot for.
Priority Free agents–Ryan Grant WR (Tulane), Matt Hall OT (Belhaven), Quandon Christian OLB (Clemson).
Scenario 3: Redskins deal up into 3rd for pick 96 and 223 (7th) with Vikings for Kirk Cousins and Pick 142 (5th). This is probably the least likely scenario.
2nd (34)–OLB Jeremiah Attaochu, Georgia Tech. Pass rusher who has played in both 43 and 34. He is better suited to stand up in a 34. He has a lot of room to grow and if Baker is as good as some think, he can turn Attaochu into a monster.
3rd (66)–S Lamarcus Joyner, FSU. Small but very talented and compares to Tyrann Matheiu who I wanted Skins to take last year.
3rd (96)–OT Billy Turner, NDSU. Played left tackle for the Bisons. Very impressive in his games with bigger schools such as Kansas State. Turner can move well for his size and help in the screen game. Should translate to a very good right tackle.
4th (102)–CB Marcus Roberson, Florida. The best corner on a Florida team with three that will get drafted in 2014. Polished player who can step in early.
6th (178)–OT Seantrel Henderson, Miami. This Guy is a very hot and cold player who had a pretty bad offseason to say the least, including a rough pro day.
7th (217)–QB David Fales, SJSU. Developmental guy for Gruden to work with after he dealt Cousins. Was once thought of as Day 2 guy. Had a rough offseason.
7th (223)–TE Rob Blanchflower, UMASS. Developmental tight end that can start off as a blocker.
Priority Free agents–ILB Stephon Robertson (JMU), WR Kofi Hughes (Illinois), WR Martin Bayless (Central Methodist).
