2015 NFL Mock Draft: Washington Redskins Four Round Mocks

New, comments

This four round mock draft is based on my latest post-combine Big Board.

Here is my most recent mock draft(s) using my post-combine Redskins Big Board.

Four Round Mock Draft(no trades):

1st -  Amari Cooper  WR(Alabama): This may not be the popular choice(especially for me), but IF our new GM is really a BPA guy, I find it hard for him to pass up on the best receiver in the draft, and an easy top 7 player. In this scenario, I have the Raiders taking wide receiver Kevin White, leaving Cooper, who easily could have been the top receiver in last years draft based on pure talent, to the Redskins. Cooper comes in and gives youth, size and a cheaper contract to a receiving corp lacking all three. This move would absolutely make Pierre Garcon expendable, and if Garcon were to be traded or released, the Redskins would have another dynamic receiver to pair with DeSean Jackson on the outside.

2nd -  Carl Davis  DT(Iowa): Davis is a talented defensive linemen who has a disruptive first step and can play all three interior positions. He does need some work with his ability to recognize plays, and he will need to stay engaged throughout the entire game, as sometimes he had the tendency to disappear for long periods of time in college, but make no mistake, the tools are there. I think Davis will become a much more disruptive force in the NFL than he was in college.

3rd - Cedric Ogbuehi  OT(Texas A&M): If it wasn't for a knee injury that ended his season, we would be talking about Ogbuehi in the first round. Regardless of injury, he is just too talented to pass up in the third round, and even if it takes a redshirt season as a rookie, the wait could pay off long-term.

4th -  Adrian Amos  FS(PSU): Amos is a converted cornerback who has tons of experience at the college level at both safety and corner. He's a big kid who can run and tackle, and he can be moved all over the field in sub packages. Most importantly, Amos has the ability to set as a single high or deep in a cover two, and take away the big play. He is also an excellent special teams player.

Four Round Mock Draft(with trade-back):

In this scenario we trade back with Cleveland for their 12th overall pick, and in return receive their second and fourth this season and second in 2016. Cleveland moves up to select Amari Cooper at number five.

1st(pick 12 from Browns) -  Landon Collins  S(Alabama): The Redskins move back and get the best pure safety in the draft. Collins answered all the questions about his speed and fluidity at the combine, and he has the ability to play strong safety, free safety and nickle linebacker. He is also a special teams demon.

2nd -  Eddie Goldman  DT(Florida St.): At 6'4" 330+ lbs, Goldman could be a great fit as a 1-gap nose tackle in our 3-4 defense. He has the versatility to line up all along the interior, and can become a force along the defensive line.

2nd(from Browns) -  Jake Fisher  OT(Oregon): Fisher really impressed me at the combine coming in at 6'6" 306 lbs. He still has room to put on some good weight, so I don't think 310-315 lbs is out of the question. Fisher is an extremely athletic tackle in the mold of former Sooner Lane Johnson, and he should be able to step right in on the right side and provide a great compliment to Trent Williams.

3rd -  Ben Koyack  TE(Notre Dame): Koyack didn't run at the combine, but he showed natural hands in on-field drills. His film shows a throwback tight end who is a solid blocker with good run-after-catch ability.

4th - Ronald Darby  CB(Florida St.): Darby had a great 40 at the combine, but he slips into the early part of the fourth due to some questions about his overall football mentality and strength.

4th(from Browns) -  Andy Gallik  C(Boston College): Gallik is not the best athlete in the draft, but he brings a workman-like approach to the game. He can be a solid center in the league for years to come.
