Redskins Mock Draft Scenario- Day 2

New, comments

A look at how the Redskins draft could unfold.

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Using On the Clock I came up with a Day 2 and 3 mock draft of what the Redskins could be looking at. Also I wanted to create a thread where people could share and discuss their mock drafts. I decided not to do a trade mock, though I do believe we may see a couple of trades.

Big Board: CBS

53: R2P22
DT AUSTIN JOHNSON
PENN STATE

-There were multiple good value players I liked still on the board here (and one reason I wouldn't be shocked to see McCloughan move this pick), but ultimately I went with Johnson. Johnson is a really good football player who gets undervalued because his top notch run defense isn't as appreciated in the NFL. While there are some valid reasons for that, at the same time you still need defensive linemen who can stop the run. This is a major weakness of the Redskins and Johnson would go a long way to improving it.


84: R3P21
C MAX TUERK
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

-Tuerk is a bit undersized and coming off an injury, but the guy can play. Despite his size knock he plays with a strong technique that allows him to win a lot of battles. He may not start year one, but he can be Lichtensteiger's replacement in 2017.


120: R4P22
RB PAUL PERKINS
UCLA

-I really think they need a running back in the top 4 rounds and Perkins is a guy with some starting potential. If he's still there in the fourth he'd be a nice option for the Redskins.


158: R5P19
WR CHARONE PEAKE
CLEMSON

-I know, I know they already drafted a receiver, and I definitely wasn't expecting to make this pick, but it still makes sense to me. Peake's value was too good to pass up, and the other players still on the board weren't good values in my book. Also, the reality is that the Redskins are likely to lose both DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon next year when they hit free agency. Josh Doctson should hopefully be able to fill that number 1 receiver role, but the number two role would be between Ryan Grant and Rashard Ross. Adding another guy with upside (and size) to the mix has value at this spot.


187: R6P12
S DEIONDRE' HALL
NORTHERN IOWA

-The safety position has obviously picked over at this point, but I like that CBS is looking at Hall as a conversion option to safety from corner.  He played safety some in college so it's not a major conversion project and Hall brings excellent length to the defensive backfield.


232: R7P11
OLB TYRONE HOLMES
MONTANA

-Holmes had incredible production at Montana and has some really nice sleeper potential. He's not a refined prospect, but if he's still sitting there late he's a nice option as our 4th OLB. With Murphy working with the DL now, the Redskins can definitely use more depth here.


242: R7P21
ILB ANTONIO MORRISON
FLORIDA

-Morrison is probably a back-up/special teamer at best, but I thought he had a nice Senior Bowl week and is a good option here late in the draft.

What do you guys think? How should the Redskins next three couple picks go? Should they make any trade backs and how far should they move back?
