2nd Round CB Jonathan Banks, Mississippi State:
-Some people will try to knock Banks due to his 40 time, but this guy can play. He's got great size and length and will match-up well versus bigger receivers. He's very physical and strong both in blitzing and in run support. If he falls to the late 2nd round he's a great pick here.
3rd Round S D.J. Swearinger, South Carolina:
-Swearinger is a really nice coverage free safety and one who I believe will be there with the Redskins 3rd round pick. He's not perfect, but he's good in coverage and has nice upside. Instead of reaching for a safety in the 2nd round, grabbing a guy like Swearinger here makes sense.
4th Round OL David Quessenberry, San Jose State:
-Though the Redskins have signed three free agent offensive tackles, none of them really project to be even solid starting options. Also none are really longterm options. Quessenberry also has value as a guy who could kick inside to guard (and possibly even center), giving him tremendous overall value. He could at least compete for a starting job in 2013, but should be a starter by 2014.
5th Round CB Brandon McGee, Miami:
-McGee offers great 5th round value, as he's a corner who has shown some nice upside. He could play inside in the slot, and offers good speed and coverage ability. Consistency is an issue, but for a 5th round pick this is a no brainer.
5th Round LB A.J. Klein, Iowa State:
-Both Perry Riley and London Fletcher are free agents after next season, so adding some more ILB depth behind Keenan Robinson makes sense. Klein is a smart productive player, who could be available in the 5th round. He's got some nice potential and could develop into a starter.
6th Round OLB Travis Johnson, San Jose State:
-Johnson may never be a complete player, but he should offer some upside as a situational pass rusher. With Rob Jackson suspended, the Redskins rush linebacker depth is non-existent at this time.
7th Round S Cooper Taylor, Richmond:
-Safety depth, particularly long term is a major issue. Taylor is a big physical safety, with impressive speed. He offers nice longterm potential, and at the very least should be a valuable special teamer.
