3 Players That The Redskins Should Consider Moving Into Round Two For

It may be tough for the Redskins to move back into the Second Round of the 2010 NFL Draft, after sending their origional second round pick to the Eagles for Donavan McNabb, but there are 3 players I have identified, that are still avaliable after the first round, that might be of some consideration to the Redskins.

Charles Brown  OT  6-5 303  USC

The run on offensive tackles within the top 10 that many had predicted failed to materialize, with teams like the Bills and Raiders ignoring the offensive line in favor of questionable choices.  These teams, as well as the Detroit Lions, may be looking into the second round to select an offensive tackle.  Charles Brown, Bruce Campbell and Roger Saffold all remain on the board, but all are likely to go pretty early in the second.  I really like Brown, and believe he can be a franchise type offensive tackle.  He can play on either the left or right side, and his athleticism fits well into a zone blocking scheme, something he is familiar with from his time at USC.  Brown and Trent Williams would be a good pair of bookend tackles for the Redskins to build around.


Sergio Kindle  OLB/DE  6-3 250  Texas

Could you imagine Kindle paired opposite Orakpo in the 3-4 defense?  I'm sure NFC East offensive coordinators don't want to have to game plan for this.  For me, Kindle was the biggest surprise not to be selected in the first round.  He is an extreme talent at rushing the passer, and fits perfectly into the OLB roll in the 3-4 defense.  He and Rak could make for one of the most feared linebacker tandems in the NFL for years to come.


Taylor Mays  FS  6-3  203  USC

Had Taylor Mays entered the draft in 2009, he likely would have been a top 10 pick.  His decision to remain at USC for his senior season likely cost him millions in NFL dollars.  Scouts have questioned his play-making ability, and his propensity to always go for the knock-out hit, instead of just making plays.  All this aside, Mays is still first round talent, and could be paired opposite LaRon Landry to make for a much improved Redskins secondary.  He also may come in with a chip on his shoulder, and something to prove, since he was bypassed in the first round.


If a trades involving players such as Haynesworth, Campbell and McIntosh can be worked out, and we can stock pile some extra picks in the draft, we may have enough ammo to get back into the second round to select one of these players.
