A new feature this year will be us keeping tabs on where the Redskins scouts are from week to week. Last week they were spotted at the Southern Cal-Hawaii game. This week they are heading to the Florida A&M-Oklahoma game in Norman.
#24 Florida at Texas A&M: 9/8 at 3:30 pm on ESPN
Score prediction: Florida 27 Texas A&M 14
Steve's Picks: 1-0
#7 Georgia (1-0) @ Missouri (1-0), 7:45 PM, ESPN2
Missouri: It should be a good one in Columbia as Mizzou hosts their SEC opener.
DT, Sheldon Richardson: Richardson is Missouri's top draft prospect coming into this season. The 6'2, 290 lbs defensive tackle is extremely athletic for his size. If the Redskins look for depth at defensive end in next year's draft then Richardson could be good candidate. Richardson is a JUCO transfer and excels mostly in run support. He needs to improve his pass rush skills and has relied on his quickness a little too much. Richardson is a guy that could kill the combine next year and shoot up draft boards. I expect him to be in the 3rd round when it's all said and done.
Georgia: The Bulldogs have some first round talent in linebacker Jarvis Jones and quarterback Aaron Murray, but obviously Redskins fans will not be focusing on the first round this year.
NT, John Jenkins: If the Redskins are looking for a prototypical nose tackle in next year's draft for their 3-4 then they should look no farther than Jenkins. Jenkins may be the league's next Vince Wilfork and is massive at 6'3, 351 lbs but his very athletic for a big guy. The Skins would also benefit since Georgia is one of the few college teams that plays a traditional 3-4. Jenkins would be a steal for the Skins in the 2nd Round.
Game Prediction: Missouri 31, Georgia 27
Parks' Predictions: 1-0
