Day 2 is here, and the Redskins have two picks(for now) to add talent to the roster. The Redskins pick at #49 in the 2nd round, and #81 in the 3rd round. Here are a few mock drafts that have been updated after the 1st round finished last night. And we posted SB Nation’s best available players here.
Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt: Cunningham has the play range and instincts that the Redskins need in the middle of the defense.
Round 2: Budda Baker, S, Washington This ends up being a dynamite defensive draft for Washington (which may still be using Scot McCloughan’s draft board). Johnathan Allen and Budda Baker are two dynamic young talents, and Baker provides a centerfielder to go with box safeties Su’a Cravens and D.J. Swearinger.
Round 3: Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma
He’s a speedy vertical threat that can fill the void left by DeSean Jackson.
2nd Round: Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee
Talented running back who lacks the production totals of the top four running backs.
3rd Round: Tim Williams, LB, Alabama
2nd Round: Tyus Bowser, OLB, Houston
2nd Round: LB Raekwon McMillan, Ohio State
The Washington Redskins' biggest weakness is on the defensive side of the ball, so it makes sense that they scooped up defensive lineman Jonathan Allen in Round 1. They can continue overhauling their D with Raekwon McMillan, who has what it takes to be a force in the middle for the foreseeable future.
McMillan was a rock for the Buckeyes, racking up triple-digit tackles in back-to-back campaigns to close his collegiate career. He's the type of interior presence that Washington needs to plug into its lineup immediately in order to set the tone for the defense. This guy may not be the fastest on the field, but he'll rack up a ton of tackles while making smart plays.
3rd Round: Pat Elflein, C, Ohio State
