Washington Redskins 2013 NFL Mock Draft

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

An updated look of where the Redskins could be looking at in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Here is my latest 2013 NFL Mock Draft. I went the full 7 rounds this time a couple players have gone back to school or declared since posting it, but it should still make for a good discussion.

2nd Round: S Tony Jefferson, Oklahoma

Jefferson isn't the most athletically gifted safety in this class, but I think he is one of the more complete safeties. He's got very good range and makes an ideal free safety. He's a smart heady player who should be able to quickly pick-up on an NFL playbook and start right away.

3rd Round: CB Tharold Simon, LSU

Simon was a bit of a surprise early entry because he likely won't go in the top 75 picks even with a good Combine/workout. His game is based more on potential than actual production due to the number of quality defensive backs at LSU the last couple of years, but his potential is pretty high. He had a nice Junior campaign, and has the physical size (listed at 6'3") that teams covet. There are some questions with consistency and hip fluidity, but right now he looks like a good 3rd round target.

4th Round: OT Justin Pugh, Syracuse

Pugh definitely has a shot to go higher, but the 2nd tier of this offensive tackle class is very crowded so a couple should be expected to fall. Pugh is a three year starter for Syracuse, and could fit in well at right tackle and in the zone blocking scheme. If he's sitting there in the 4th round he's be a great addition.

5th Round: CB Ryan Lacy, Utah

Lacy is really only a one year starter for Utah, but he was pretty impressive this season. He's got some nice coverage abilities to go along with his reported 4.3 speed. He's on the shorter side making him more of a slot corner, but that is a need for the Redskins as well.

5th Round: RB Theo Riddick, Notre Dame

Riddick is an intriguing late round running back option for the Redskins, as he could be a perfect fit for their pistol formation read option approach. Riddick has very good speed, and also has a back ground as a receiver, after spending his sophomore and junior years there. He could be an excellent complementary back for Morris, and get some work in the "Brandon Banks" role (except far more effective).

6th Round: DE/OLB Lavar Edwards, LSU

With Rob Jackson's free agency status up in the air and Chris Wilson likely leaving depth could be a real concern for the Redskins. Edwards wasn't a starter at LSU, but got a good amount of playing time. He's solid at the point of attack, and can get some nice penetration.

7th Round: OG Jeff Baca, UCLA

Baca is an intriguing late round project offensive lineman. He has some injury concerns in his career, but when he's been on the field he's been highly effective. He also has proven to be very versatile with time at both tackle and guard. He might not be able to make the 53 man roster as a rookie, but he's the type of guy you'd like to stash for a year and see what you can build him up to.
