A new look at how the Redskins Draft could shape up!
Hey guys I wanted to share my latest 2013 NFL Mock Draft to get the debate going again. Post your thoughts and what picks you would make instead below.
2nd Round CB Jordan Poyer, Oregon State:
-Poyer to me is one of the most advanced and technical corners in this draft. He's also very athletic and was Oregon State's punt returner. He could immediately be a starter for the Redskins who can play both in zone and man schemes.
3rd Round S Jonathan Cyprien, Florida International:
-Cyprien is moving up draft boards and displays a ton of upside, but I still think he could be there when we draft in the 3rd round. He has impressive range and is good in run support as well, and should quickly be able to start for the Redskins.
4th Round OL David Quessenberry, San Jose State:
-Quessenberry had a really impressive Senior Bowl week showing that he can play at a higher level. He worked at both guard and tackle, and even snapped some as a center. He's a guy who could get a look to start early on at RT and could be in consideration for LG as well. His versatility is a huge plus and would make him very valuable to the Redskins even as a back-up.
5th Round RB Kenjon Barner, Oregon:
-This is definitely on the low side for Barner, but with so many mid-round options it is easy to see how he could fall some. Barner has big time speed and agility, but doesn't really project to be anything more than a situational back/special teamer. He would fit in well with the Redskins read option offense and zone blocking scheme. If he falls he's be an interesting compliment to Alfred Morris.
5th Round TE Nick Kasa, Colorado:
-Keeping Fred Davis is probably not an option for the Redskins, meaning tight end is a pretty good need. Kasa is a bit of a project, but he's got excellent size, blocking ability and intriguing speed. While his hands are a slight concern he flashed well Senior Bowl week making a number of tough catches.
6th Round LB Keith Pough, Howard:
-Pough is a small school guy who will be a bit of a project, but he's an incredible leader and has a tremendous work ethic. He showed well at the East West Shrine Game and should draw some late round interest. He could move inside, and in a year could replace Fletcher when his contract is up.
7th Round P/KOS Jeff Locke, UCLA:
-The Redskins desperately need a new and hopefully better punter, and one who does kickoffs would be icing on the cake. The fact that the Redskins don't have much money to spend means that they should look to grab a punter who fits this bill in the 7th round. Jeff Locke would be an ideal fit, he was consistently among the NCAA leaders in touchbacks and kickoff yards per kick in college, and he also played with Kai Forbath so there could be some familiarity there for holding.
