Redskins Redo: 2014 NFL Draft

Imagine if Scot McCloughan ran the Redskins 2014 draft?

It's always fun to look back on the draft a few years later to see how your team did. Nearly two years removed from the 2014 NFL Draft, I will look at what the Redskins could have done differently when it was their turn on the clock. I left all trades as they were.

Now obviously, hindsight being 20-20, some of these players would have been taken higher than they were based upon their current production in the league, but that's way too much logistics to compute, so I chose the easy way to do this - any player selected after our pick in that round.

2nd Round(pick 47):

Original Pick - Trent Murphy OLB  Stanford

New Pick - Allen Robinson WR  PSU(Robinson was selected 13 picks after Murphy):  This would have ended the debate about a big receiver on the outside. Robinson was off to a great start as a rookie before getting injured. He came back last year and earned a Pro Bowl nod, leading the league in TD's.

3rd Round(pick 66):

Original Pick - Morgan Moses OT  Virginia

New Pick - Same: I wasn't sure I'd ever say this about Moses, but he's turned out to be a great 3rd round pick.

3rd Round(pick 78):

Original Pick - Spencer Long OG  Nebraska

New Pick - Bryan Stork C  Florida St:  Long was a reach in the 3rd. Looking back, Stork wouldn't have been.

4th Round(pick 102):

Original Pick - Bashaud Breeland CB  Clemson

New Pick - Same:  I'm sure Breeland would have been selected higher, but he was our 4th round pick, and that's where I'm keeping him.

5th Round(pick 142):

Original Pick - Ryan Grant WR  Tulane

New Pick - Avery Williamson LB  Kentucky:  Williamson is a young up-and-coming linebacker for the Titans who has started a total of 27 games in his first two seasons.

6th Round(pick 186):

Original Pick - Lache Seastrunk RB  Baylor

New Pick - Zach Fulton OG  Tennessee: Fulton started all 16 games for the Chiefs in 2014.

7th Round(pick 217):

Original Pick - Ted Bolser TE  Indiana

New Pick - Seantrel Henderson OT  Miami:  Henderson has turned into a good offensive tackle for the Bills.

7th Round(pick 228):

Original Pick - Zach Hocker K  Arkansas

New Pick - Jeff Janis WR  Saginaw Valley St.:  Janis is a big, fast target who has kick return abilities.
