As college football inches closer it's never too early to think about who the Redskins may look to add in the second round of next year's draft. We'll continue our weekly college football column this year featuring the biggest games each week and who to keep an eye on. But from a very high level view, who are some guys to start thinking about for next year?

First off, I believe the most likely subtraction and potential position of need will be inside linebacker. Who knows how much longer London Fletcher can/will last?

Inside Linebackers:

C.J. Mosley, Alabama: Mosley has learned from some of the best in his time at Alabama and is poised to take on an even bigger role for the Crimson Tide in 2012. Look for the junior to make a strong impact on the national championship picture and on the NFL draft.

Shayne Skov, Stanford: This guy is scary to look at. He has a mo-hawk, uses Chris Hovan style eye black, and recently just got arrested for a DUI. Still, Skov may be the second most talented inside linebacker in this draft behind Notre Dame's Manti Te'o.

Arthur Brown, Kansas State: Brown has drawn comparisons to Ray Lewis and could shoot up draft boards this year. He is a transfer from Miami and a team captain for the Wildcats.
