Here is my first Redskins mock draft of the season. I did a few rough drafts with some early projections, and ended up taking BPA with my first two picks even though I had some team needs ranked higher at different positions.
Let me know your thoughts in the comment section.
My Christmas present to you all. Enjoy!
(2nd)Cyril Richardson: OG, Baylor 6"4" 335 - In this scenario, the massive guard from Baylor falls into the second round. A first round talent, Richardson is overlooked because guards are the easiest position to fill in the NFL, and is the best player available when the Redskins draft. He has the ability to possibly kick outside to right tackle, but for a offensive line needy team, he begins his career inside for the Skins.
(3rd)DaQuan Jones: DT, PSU 6'3" 329 - Again, going with the best player available, Jones falls just outside the second round, and into the lap of the Redskins. Jones is a massive defensive tackle who has experience playing the one, three and five technique. He has surprising lateral quickness and an excellent motor. He would fit well in both a 3-4 or 4-3.
(4th)Mike Davis: WR, Texas 6'2" 195 - The Redskins need a taller wide receiver to play opposite Garcon, and Davis, at 6'2" gives them that. He is a quick-twitch athlete who excels at exploding off the line, and getting quickly into and out of his breaks. Lacks physicality in the open field after the catch, but is very elusive with the ball in his hands. Quality man of character, who has done a lot in the community outside of football.
(5th)Max Bullough: LB, Mich St. 6'3" 245 - Bullough was the leader of the nations best defense this past season from him middle linebacker position. He won't wow scouts with speed, but he makes up for that with great instincts and solid tackling ability. Needs some work in pass coverage, but with a bit more discipline can be effective. Will play any position asked on special teams.
(6th)Eric Ward: WR, Texas Tech 5'11" 205 - Ward is an interesting prospect as a slot receiver. He is very physical after the catch, is not afraid to make the tough reception in traffic, and possesses the short-area quickness teams look for in a slot receiver. He can also play special teams.
(7th)Carrington Byndom: CB, Texas 6'0" 180 - Byndom possesses great ball skills, fluid hips and solid speed. His slender frame is a concern, but if he can work to add a bit more muscle, he can be a contributor in sub-packages and on special teams early on.
