Redskins 2014 NFL Mock Draft 2.0

The Redskins made a big splash by signing Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Love him or hate him, he’s a game changer and his immense athletic abilities will serve the offense well next season. With Jackson, Garcon and Roberts, the Redskins have arguably the fastest wide receiving corps in the NFC. That’s a good thing for Robert Griffin III as he enters his third NFL season.

This free agency, the Redskins have done a good job of patching up the glaring holes from last season. They brought back their best defensive players (Hall, Orakpo, Riley), and added potential starters in Ryan Clark, Tracy Porter, Jason Hatcher, Darryl Sharpton, and Akeem Jordan. The offense was bolstered with the additions of wide receiver Andre Roberts and guard Shawn Lauvao and tackle Mike McGlynn.

Barring significant injuries, the Redskins are likely wiping their hands clean of any more free agency signings. The 2nd round of the NFL Draft is exactly one month away and with the Redskins signing D-Jax, the logical and sound move is to draft an offensive lineman with the 34th pick. It would also be wise for the Redskins to add another inside linebacker and cornerback via the draft.


Rd. 2: David Yankey, G, Stanford: The O-Line upgrade begins. Yankey is the second best guard in the draft, and the Redskins need to replace Chris Chester. Yankey is an immediate starter, and a long term solution at guard.

Rd. 3: Craig Loston, FS, LSU: Ryan Clark and Brandon Meriweather are not long term solutions. Loston is a hard-hitting safety that has drawn comparisons to former Redskin LaRon Landry. Can play both safety positions, and after a year or two behind Clark, should be ready to start.

Rd. 4: Bryan Stork, C, Florida State: The offensive line rebuild continues. JD Walton signed with the Broncos and Will Montgomery was released last month. Stork was an All-American at FSU, and would be the Redskins future center for the next half-decade.

Rd. 5: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan: Schofield played both guard and tackle during his time with the Wolverines. Tyler Polumbus turns 30 this month, and the Redskins have yet to find a right tackle for the future. Maybe it's Schofield, or maybe he's added depth.

Rd. 6: Shamar Stephen, DT/DE, UConn: At 6'5, 309, can play both DT and DE in the 3-4. Provides D-line depth.

Rd. 7:Colt Lyerla, TE, Oregon:Talented but troubled player is worth a gamble in the later rounds.
