Final Mock Draft - Redskins Edition

1st: Robert Griffin III QB Baylor - The QB savior of this franchise finally arrives, equiped with a rocket arm, track speed, and the personality to be the NFL's new poster child for Nike. Growing pains are sure to follow, but a full offseason of OTA's and mini-camps will enhance the young QB's knowledge and understanding of Mike Shanahan's system. 2012 projections: 14 starts, 3875 yards, 17 TD's, 9 INT's, 62% completion percentage, 365 rushing yards, 3 TD's. NFL Comparison: Michael Vick

3rd: Nate Potter OT Boise State - Potter comes in as a perfect fit to the Shanahan zone blocking scheme. He is not the power in-line blocker that a Riley Reiff is, but he excells at positioning and technique, and has been very well coached during his four years at Boise, so the mental aspects of the game in the NFL should come easy to this kid. 2012 projections: 9 starts at RT. NFL Comparison: Nate Solder

4th: Trumaine Johnson CB Montana - Johnson is a big, physical CB with outstanding speed and athleticism. He hails from a small school, and had some off-field issues in 2011 that may cause some scouts to push him down their draft boards, but he does have all the physical tools to be a quality NFL corner. He should be able to contribute early on special teams, and could see some time as the 4th CB. Drafting him could allow the staff to experiment with Barnes at FS. A move to FS can not be ruled out with Johnson. 2012 projections: 14 games played, 17 tackles, 1 FR, 8 ST tackles, 1 FF. NFL Comparison: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

4th: Philip Blake C Baylor - What better way to help a rookie QB transition from college to the pro's, than to draft his former college center. Blake has really improved his stock since the senior bowl, showing teams he can play in just about any offense. He has very good footwork for a "dancing bear", and shows good upper and lower body strength to anchor against larger defensive tackles. 2012 projections: 2 games played. NFL Comparison: Eugene Amano

5th: Devier Posey WR Ohio St - Posey is a project both on and off the field, but if he can get his head on straight, and improve his football skills, he could be a late-round steal in this draft. At 6' 2" and 210 lbs, with 4.4 speed, Posey offers the Redskins another young wide reciever who can also be a force on special teams. 2012 projections: Special teams player. NFL Comparison: Pierre Garcon

6th: Chris Galippo ILB USC - Galippo was the top linebacker recruit in the country in 2008. He never quite lived up to the hype at USC, but Galippo showed a will to never quit, that made him a valued member of the Trojans. Labled as a great teammate and hard worker by coaches and players alike, Galippo has the size, strength and instincts to play the position; it's the speed that is a bit of a concern. He should be an immediate special team contributor, and could be poised to take on a larger role in 2013. 2012 projections: Special teams player. NFL Comparison: Barrett Rudd

7th: Levy Adcock OT Ok St - Adcock was snubbed from the NFL combine, but had a great two season with Oklahoma State playing both left and righ tackle, and making all four of the major all-american teams in 2011(the only offensive linemen to do so). He projects to the right side in the NFL, but may also be able to kick inside to guard if needed. He's played in a zone blocking system, so the transition should be a smooth one. 2012 projections: reserve NFL Comparison: Tyson Clabo

Undrafted Free Agents:

Donnie Fletcher CB Boston College - big corner who excells in cover 2(may be drafted) D'anton Lynn FS Penn State - college corner who will be a S in the NFL

Chris Marve ILB Vandy - A thumper in the mold of Curtis Lofton Nick Jean-baptiste - A true NT prospect, with a hugh lower half

Garrett Celek TE Mich St - Good blocking TE, who is under-rated as a pass catcher Junior Hemmingway WR Michigan - Good run-after-catch skills

Stephfon Green RB Penn St. - A one-cut-and-gone type, who also has special teams skills Aaron Corp QB Richmond - We need to get rid of John Beck

Darron Thomas QB Oregon - We need to get rid of John Beck
