I'm going to change it up this week since it is getting harder and harder to pick two games which I haven't already done at least one of the schools. Instead I will just write up a number of players that the Redskins should be considering come next April:

Baylor QB Robert Griffin: Griffin has gotten a lot of debate in draft circles of late and for good reason. He's having a fantastic season, and if Baylor was a stronger team he'd be in serious consideration for the Heisman Trophy. Griffin is a great combination of smarts, athletic ability and a great arm. He is both highly accurate and can air it out. While a natural comparison for him is MIchael Vick, Griffin is far more advanced than he was as a passer coming out of college. He's more accurate and displays more touch on his throws. While he isn't as good as a runner as Vick, he does a nice job looking down field even when he is on the move. Griffin, if he comes out has firmly established himself as a 1st rounder. He has a nice match-up today versus Oklahoma State. While the Cowboys defense isn't that great, Griffin will likely be playing from behind most of the game and will need to be perfect for the Bears to win. Watch him today @ 3:30 on ABC/ESPN2/ESPN3

Michigan C David Molk: Molk is the Wolverines starting center and has battled the last few years with Ohio State's Michael Brewster for the top center in the conference (they have now both been passed by Wisconsin's Peter Konz). Molk who weighs under 300 lbs, might be a little light for most NFL teams, but he does project well for a a zone blocking team like the Redskins. He's a smart blocker who uses his quickness to his advantage, but it will be interesting to see how he does with Defensive Tackles lined up right over him in the NFL. He'll get a good chance to showcase himself today going up against Purdue's Kawann Short. Molk right now looks to be a 4th-5th rounder, but a strong showing could move him up. Watch him @ 12:00 on ESPN2/ESPN3.

Ohio State Offensive Tackle Mike Adams: Adams was one of the OSU players who was suspended earlier this season for receiving gifts in the past. He's now back and anchoring an Ohio State offensive line. Physically Adams should be a surefire first round pick, but with some issues in the past and questions about his work ethic his draft stock has fallen some. Early reports are he's worked real hard this year to turn the perception of him around, and he could be an intriguing pick in the early 2nd round. Watch him today as he faces a very tough Wisconsin defense, @ 8:00 PM, ESPN/ESPN3

Texas A&M DE Tony Jerod-Eddie: Jerod-Eddie is a defensive tackle for the Aggies, but he profiles best for a move to end in the 3-4. He's big and strong and plays with a mean streak. He's pretty quick for his size and can get a pretty good pass rush going. He still needs to work on his run defense as he doesn't use his size and speed to his advantage. Right now he looks like a 5th-7th round pick. Watch him today against Missouri @ 12:00 on FX.
