Mike Mayock's Top-5 Players by Position

USA TODAY Sports

I thought it would be a good idea to take a look at NFL.com analyst Mike Mayock's latest player rankings at each position. As you will see, Mayock has altered his positions quite a bit from his previous update before the combine. So for all of you who say the combine doesn't really mean that much, I ask, why did Mayock switch his board up so much?

Mike Mayock's Top 5 Position Rankings

Here are a few snapshots from the rankings at key positions of interest for the Redskins:

Wide Receiver

1. Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee
2. Keenan Allen, Cal
3. Tavon Austin, West Virginia
4. Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech
5. DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson

Tackle

1. Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M
2. Eric Fisher, Central Michigan
3. Lane Johnson, Oklahoma
4. D.J. Fluker, Alabama
T-5. Menelik Watson, Florida State
T-5. Justin Pugh, Syracuse

Cornerback

1. Dee Milliner, Alabama
2. Xavier Rhodes, Florida State
3. Desmond Trufant, Washington
4. Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Connecticut

Safety

1. Kenny Vaccaro, Texas
2. Matt Elam, Florida
3. Jonathan Cyprien, Florida International

This could be a good guide to see who may or may not be on the board come time for the Redskins to draft in the second round.
