As I wrote last week, Kevin and I have been participating in a "War Room" style mock draft that concluded today. Our goal was to garner as many quality picks as possible, and we would love to hear your feedback.
We had no picks in the 4th Round but we tried to trade to obtain one. This was unsuccessful because mostly the asking price was a 2012 3rd Rounder, which we were not willing to part with. So our picking resumed in the 5th Round:
5th Round (144 Overall): Terrance Toliver, WR, LSU, We are hoping Toliver (6'4,212 lbs) becomes the large possession WR the Redskins need so badly. He has good speed with a 4.52 40 and we hope he'll pick up where he left off, which was tying a Cotton Bowl record with 3 TD receptions vs. Texas A&M.
6th Round (177): Ugo Chinasa, OLB, Oklahoma State, Chinasa (6'5, 260) has been flying under the radar as a OLB/DE prospect. He started all 38 games of his last 3 seasons at OSU. He's a workout warrior and could become a nice counterpart to Brian Orakpo.
7th Round (213): Dion Lewis, RB, Pitt, Lewis has been highlighted a couple times at Hogs Haven. We figured he would be a great change of pace back to add to the mix in the back field.
7th Round (224): Anthony Gaitor, CB, FIU, Gaitor (5'10,177) is a speedy defensive back. He is a 5th or 6th round prospect so we were happy to grab him in the 7th and add depth to the defensive backfield.
7th Round (253): Charles Clay, FB, Tulsa, Charles (6'3, 245) is rated by many as a 4th round prospect and the best overall fullback in the draft. This is why we were elated to grab him with one of the very last picks of the draft.
