Mock Drafting Using The Hogs Haven/HTTR24-7 Redskins Draft Board

USA TODAY Sports

If you missed it this week, Steve Shoup and I teamed up with some of the guys over at HTTR24-7.com to create our own Redskins draft board, ranking 245 players in next weeks NFL Draft.

With the draft fast approaching, this is the last weekend we have to do mock drafts. I decided to have a little fun using our draft board to create three different mocks; an all-offense mock, an all-defense mock and have a look at the two combined. Lets start with the all offense mock.

All-Offense Mock

Second Round: Quinton Patton, Wide Receiver.

Third Round: Jordan Reed, Tight End.

Fourth Round: Kenjon Barner, Running Back.

Fifth Round: Reid Fragel, Offensive Tackle.

Fifth Round: Ace Saunders, Wide Receiver.

Sixth Round: Kyle Juzszyck, H-Back.

Seventh Round: Steve Demilio, Tackle/Guard.

Summary: With the all-offense mock, I took priority with surrounding Robert Griffin III with weapons. Quinton Patton, Jordan Reed and Kenjon Barner are all versatile, athletic weapons that can line up in various positions and formations that would give defensive coordinators a nightmare. Ace Saunders could be groomed as an eventual successor to Santana Moss in the slot and add value as a return man. Fragel is an extremely athletic tackle. The ex-tight end is a terrific fit in an offense that requires mobile guys on the offensive line. Juzszyck would be a jack-of-all-traits kind of weapon that could play fullback, tight end, h-back and slot receiver; while Demilio could come in as a back up tackle and guard prospect.

All-Defense Mock

Second Round: Robert Alford, Cornerback.

Third Round: Bacarri Rambo, Free Safety.

Fourth Round: Brandon McGee, Cornerback.

Fifth Round: Kwame Geathers, Nose Tackle.

Fifth Round: Chase Thomas, Linebacker.

Sixth Round: Devin Taylor, Defensive End.

Seventh Round: Dominick Reyes, Safety.

Summary: Despite safety being the bigger need, I went with the corner first. Robert Alford is a guy I really like, and while the second round could be a slight reach for him, he has quick feet and incredible recovery speed. While undersized. he's a nuisance in press coverage over a slot receiver. Rambo and McGee help sure up the secondary while Geathers and Taylor add some beef to the defensive line. Chase Thomas is a versatile linebacker that could play multiple positions in the Redskins 3-4 defense. I took a seventh round flyer on Tiller's guy, Reyes, who is big enough to potentially move to linebacker if he struggles at safety.

Combined Mock

Second Round: Robert Alford, Cornerback.

Third Round: Bacarri Rambo, Free Safety.

Fourth Round: Kenjon Barner, Running Back.

Fifth Round: Reid Fragel, Offensive Tackle.

Fifth Round: Kwame Geathers, Nose Tackle.

Sixth Round: Kyle Juszyzck, H-Back.

Seventh Round: Dominick Reyes, Safety.

Summary: In the combined mock, I went for the corner/safety combination with the first two picks. The secondary is obviously the Redskins biggest need and while I can see the 'Skins taking a receiver in the second round, I decided against it. I really like the speed and elusiveness Barner offers at running back to offer a change of pace to Alfred Morris, those two in the backfield with RGIII is a pretty frightening thought. The fifth round was used to beef up the trenches. Fragel has big upside as an athletic tackle while Geathers is a big body that could push for playing time as a back-up nose tackle. I'm a big fan of the versatility Juzszyck offers to an offense. With Reyes I felt like too many safeties in a draft isn't a bad thing given the state of our secondary.

So what do you think of my three mocks and how would you change them? Use the draft board to help you create your own mock drafts in the comments section.
