The five players I have identified as targets for the Redskins would all be players that would have to slip a bit for the Redskins to land in round three, but I expect, just like each year, one may end up in our laps at pick 69.




Jeff Allen(OT/G) - Illinois: It would be tough to imagine Allen falling all the way down to pick 69 in the third round, but stranger things have happened. I believe Allen is valuable because he can play both right tackle, and either guard spot(although I feel guard will eventually become his permanent home). Reason he may slide: If a team is in need of a starting right tackle, they may glance over Allen due to his height(just under 6'4").

Zebrie Sanders(OT) - Florida St.: Sanders has a realistic chance of being there when we pick in the third. He was once considered a boarderline first round draft pick, but questions regarding his athleticism have come into play. Reason he may slide: Sanders had a poor showing at the senior bowl, and has question about both his strength and quickness.

Mohamed Sanu(WR) - Rutgers: Once thought to be a late first round selection, Sanu's stock has fallen since a poor showing at the combine. Some Mock drafts have him in the mid-to-late third. If you put on the tape, you will see a highly productive wide receiver, who can break tackles in the open field, and uses his body well to shield defenders. Reason he may slide: They're are major concerns regarding his ability to gain seperation in the NFL.

Mychael Kendricks(MLB) - Cal: This is one player I hope falls to us in the third. There are questions about his height, but we dealt with this concern before from our pro bowl middle linebacker London Fletcher, and he's turned out just fine. Kendricks is a sideline to sideline player, with excellent speed(mid 4.4 40), and solid coverage skills. Reason he may slide: Height and weight are below average for an NFL middle linebacker.

Brandon Boykin(CB) - Georgia: At just 5' 9" and 182 pounds, Boykin is undersized at cornerback, but he makes up for this with explosive speed, good ball skills, and a killer vertical. He is an extremely hard worker, and could wind up contributing immediately as a nickle corner. Reason he may slide: The height and weight will be a concern to many team, as the NFL is now seeing many bigger wide receivers.
