The Redskins have two fourth round picks this year thanks to the Jason Campbell trade. Yesterday the Community GM took a familiar butt for Robert Griffin III in Baylor center Phillip Blake. Boise State safety George Iloka was the runner up in the vote. So far the Hogs Haven Community GM has snagged the following picks:
1st- Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
3rd- Mitchell Schwartz, OT, Cal
4th- Phillip Blake, C, Baylor
Here are today's candidates:
Vontaze Burfict, ILB, Arizona State: Once thought to be the premier linebacker in the 2012 NFL Draft, Burfict has dropped like a rock. He showed up to the combine out of shape and was terrible in interviews. He's still a very talented linebacker, the question is can he get his head straight?
Nate Potter, OT, Boise State: Yep... Potter is still on the board. The Redskins could still add depth with the Boise State lineman who can likely play tackle or guard.
Ryan Steed, CB, Furman: Steed is another "small" school corner who could be a solid pickup for the Redskins. He lacks top notch speed but is a great tackler and excels in run game support. The Purple Paladin could add some depth and perhaps replace Kevin Barnes.
Brandon Taylor, SS, LSU: The number eighteen is given to the LSU player each year that exemplifies the greatest leadership and character attributes and this year Taylor donned the number. Taylor is a solid safety prospect but can struggle in man-to-man coverage.
Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin: I've been a strong proponent of drafting two quarterbacks in this draft. Could Wilson in the fifth round be the right pick?
