Well the Redskins landed their free safety in Philip Thomas in the fourth round, but the draft isn't over yet. There is still plenty of talent left on the board.

Having taken a corner and a safety, I wouldn't be surprised if the Redskins used there two fifth round picks, 154 overall (21st pick of the fifth round) and 162 (29th pick of the fifth round) to add some more weapons on offense.

A speedy, change of pace back like Kenjon Barner or Andre Ellington are both available and would provide great value in the fifth. Ryan Swope and Da'Rick Rogers have slipped this far, they could also be very tempting options for the Redskins.

The 'Skins could opt to take an offensive lineman to help keep Robert Griffin III upright. I like Ohio State's Reid Fragel as a good value pick in the fifth round, but David Quessenberry and Xavier Nixon are also available.

What are you looking for the Redskins to do with their two picks in the fifth round?
