Round 1(#17) Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama
Mayock: “I think that’s a steal. This kid is an absolute fit in Washington.
Round 2(#49) Ryan Anderson, LB, Alabama
Clinton Portis announced the pick. Mayock: “Ryan Anderson is an explosive edge rusher. He’s only 6’2”, that’s the knock on him, 253. He sets a physical edge. He converts speed to power better than any edge rusher in this draft. The comparison, even though he’s taller, the way he plays is like Elvis Dumervil. He’s a leverage player, he gets underneath you, and knocks your jock on the ground. I like him in the run game, I like his energy in the pass game. He’s and all day sucker. Really a good football player.”
Round 3(#81) Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA
London Fletcher announced the pick: "This feels like home, feels like old times. I expected more from Philly, as many hits I put on your running backs and receivers"
Mayock: “I absolutely love this pick. I had him as a 1st round corner before he tore his pec bench pressing at his Pro Day. He’s got speed, he’s got length, hes got ball skills, he just needs to be more consistently physical. I think he needs more snaps, he needs to understand the game a little bit better. But the physical traits are there. He might start the season on the PUP, it could be a partial red-shirt. I don’t know where he stands on that torn pec. All I know is big picture, Washington just got themselves a starting corner.”
Round 4(#114) Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma
Mayock: I think he’s an underrated big back. Remember he had 427 yards in one game against Kansas. Team captain. Really good pass protection. Catches the football extremely well. Because he ran 4.65, people got off of him a little bit. But you pair him in Washington with their 3rd down change of pace guy Chris Thompson, then you’ve got a pretty good backfield.”
Round 4(#124) Montae Nicholson, S, Mich. St.
Bucky Brooks: “Montae Nicholson is a guy that checks all the boxes, height, weight, speed specimen. 6’2”, 212, a good that runs really well. He’s tough to watch on tape because you see some of the flashes, you like some of the things, he’s a big hitter, he controls it between the hashes. But he’s not necessarily a playmaker, you see that he has 86 tackles, but you’d like to see more ball protection from your safeties. I believe that what they’re banking on is that because of his size, his traits, he can eventually grow into the position and eventually make a run at a starting job. I think right now though, he is better suited to be a special teams player early in his career.”
Round 5(#154) Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas
“Big tight end” “Ability to do some blocking” “Let him pass protect” “He could become an eventual starter there”
Round 6(#199) Chase Roullier, C, Wyoming
“Birthing hips, built like a pear.” “ Can be a starter in their power scheme”
Round 6(#209) Robert Davis, WR, Georgia St
“Classic small school, but big numbers” “There something about him that I just really like” “Extremely productive player over the last two seasons”
Round 7(#230) Josh Harvey-Clemons, S, Louisville
“I really like his potential. He’s got long arms, he’s rangy. A lot of teams think he can become a linebacker. I’m going to predict that he’s the steal of the 7th round. He’s athletic, he’s got some twitch in his hips. I think he can cover just enough, you can put him on a tight end. I think his range as a tackler is what’s going to open some eyes. I think eventually he can work his way on to the field in sub-packages, and maybe even as a linebacker.”
Round 7(#235) Joshua Holsey, DB, Auburn
“Plays bigger than his size” “Good ball skills, brings the turnovers when he has the opportunity”
