New, comments

A look at 5 players the Redskins could target in next May's Draft

Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

(Note: This will be a shorter post today and more of a discussion thread as I'm traveling today)

WR Tevin Reese, Baylor

Projected Rd: 5th

-Small fast wide receiver who played two years with RGIII, might be a good 2nd wide receiver to take later in the draft and be a deep threat option.

Other Baylor Players to watch: G Cyril Richardson (2nd RD), S Ahmad Dixon (3rd-4th RD)

WR Allen Robinson, Penn State

Projected Rd: late 1st-early 2nd

-Big, fast receiver could be a nice starting wide receiver option opposite Pierre Garcon. Dominated the Big 10 this season, despite playing with a true freshman quarterback. Could be taken higher than the Redskins first pick, but should be an option if the Redskins haven't upgraded their receiving corps.

Other Penn State Players: DL DaQuan Jones (2nd-3rd RD), ILB Glenn Carson (6th-7th RD)

ILB Christian Jones, Florida State

Projected Rd: 2nd to early 3rd round

-Sideline to sideline backer can play inside or outside. Smart instinctive player who always seems to be around the ball and making the play. Could be an interesting option for the Skins in either the 3-4 or 4-3.

Other Florida State Players S LaMarcus Joyner (2nd), S Terrence Brooks (4th), LB/S Telvin Smith (4th), C Bryan Stork (5th), WR Rashard Greene (5th), WR Kenny Shaw (7th-UDFA)

ILB Shayne Skov, Stanford

Projected Rd: 3rd-4th

-Great instincts and heart, exactly what you are looking for in an inside backer to lead your defense. Makes big plays in crunch time and has succeeded versus some high powered offenses. Has good speed and strength and could quickly develop into a starting ILB.

Other Stanford Players: DE Josh Mauro (4th-5th), RB Tyler Gaffney (6th), DE Ben Gardner (7th)

WR Jared Abbrederis, Wisconsin

Projected Rd: 3rd-4th

-Smart slot receiver with nice size and great hands. He's a great route runner who has better speed than he is given credit for. Despite playing in a run oriented offense, he is pretty advanced as a receiver and has been highly successful in the Big 10.

Other Wisconsin Players: ILB Chris Borland (4th-5th), OG Ryan Groy (5th), RB James White (5th), TE Jacob Pedersen (6th)
