Redskins Post-Combine 7 Round Mock Draft

HogsHaven writer Mark Tyler gives you his latest Redskins 7-Round Mock Draft

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

With the NFL Scouting Combine having just wrapped up, I wanted to share with you my new 7-round mock draft for the Redskins, filled with players who were invited to, and competed at the event.

Round 1 - Eli Apple CB(Oh St) 6'1" 199: Apple impressed me with his size, speed(4.40 40 yard dash)and fluidity at the combine. With Hall making the permanent move to safety, and Breeland having one corner spot locked down, we need someone to play opposite him. Dunbar had a nice season last year, but the converted wide receiver is still very raw. Apple can enter the rotation as a boundary corner, and offers very good press coverage abilities. His ceiling is very high.

Round 2 - Chris Jones DT(Miss St) 6'6" 310:  Jones put up solid numbers at the combine, recording a 5.03 40 yard dash, with a 1.70 10-yard split,  and 26 reps on the bench press. I thought he showed good in on-filed drills for a kid who is 6'6" 310. I have the Redskins taking advantage of the great depth at DL here in the second round, and selecting a player who is a prototype 3-4 DE with pass rushing ability to replace Jason Hatcher.

Round 3 - Hassan Ridgeway DT(Texas) 6'3" 303: I have the Redskins selecting back-to-back defensive tackles here, again, taking advantage of the depth this class has to offer at the position. Ridgeway and Jones, however are two different prospects. Hassan posted a 5.02 40 yard dash with a 1.72 10-yard split, 24 reps on the bench press, and a 32" vert. I thought he showed very well in on-field drills. While Jones is relegated to more of a true one-gap 3-4 defensive end, Ridgeway offers a bit more versatility, being able to play the 1, 3 and 5 techniques. He'll be best suited as part of a rotation at first, but can be a high-impact starter down the road.

Round 4 - Evan Boehm C(Missouri) 6'2" 309:  Boehm didn't dazzle in testing at the combine, posting a 5.33 40, 24 reps on the bench, and just a 96" broad jump, but he showed surprising re-direction and fluidity in on-field drills. Moreover, he started 52 consecutive games at Missouri, and showed the ability to play through pain. This guy is tough as nails, and would fit very well into a power blocking scheme. My only concern is he may not last until our pick in the 4th round, and I don't know if I'd pull the trigger on him in the 3rd.

Round 5 - Charone Peake WR(Clemson) 6'2" 209:  Peake had an excellent combine, recording a 4.45 40, jumping 35.5" in the vert, and a 4.46 short shuttle. His 34" arms and 6'2" frame make him a nice redzone target. His collegiate numbers were not eye-popping, and this lack of production should push him to the later half of the draft, but he has some nice measurables teams can work with, and possesses future starter capabilities.

Round 6 - Kevin Hogan QB(Stanford) 6'3" 218:  Hogan had impressive measurables at the combine posting a 4.78 40, a 32.5" vert and a 6.90 sec 3-cone drill. But do these measurables really matter for a QB? What I saw was a big, strong athletic kid who has massive hands, threw the ball pretty well, and has the intangibles to become a successful NFL quarterback.

Round 7 - Beau Sandland TE(Montana St) 6'4" 253:  Sandland had himself a solid combine posting a 4.74 40, 23 reps on the bench, a 35" vert and a 124" broad jump. He's not the most agile route runner, but he's sneaky quick. He has large hands(10 1/8) and uses those well to engage defenders in the run game.

Round 7 - Joe Schobert LB(Wisconsin) 6'1" 244:  Schobert is listed as an OLB, but I think he'll have to kick inside in the NFL. He ran a 4.76 40, put up 22 reps on the bench, and really impressed me with his movement skills in on-filed drills. He should be a good special teams player out of the gate.
