The Redskins took care of a big need, while passing on some defensive players who many people had rated higher. Washington recognized their need at nose tackle, and went with an Alabama defensive lineman for the second year in a row when they selected Da’Ron Payne at #13.

Now we move on to Day 2 of the 2018 NFL Draft, and the Redskins have one pick in the 2nd round tonight. RB in the 2nd round has been almost as popular as DL in the first for the Redskins in mock drafts this year. That trend continues in the Day 2 mock drafts that have already been posted. There are plenty of options on both sides of the ball, who will the Redskins go with tonight?

Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

CBS Sports(White)

If the Redskins can get Guice as the fifth running back off the board, they have to like that.

Ronald Jones II, RB, Southern California

SB Nation(Kadar)

Walter Football

The Redskins are looking for a new running back, as all the options they have at the position are pretty lackluster.

Walter Football(Campbell)

Washington can’t rely on Rob Kelley, and Samaje Perine was up and down as a rookie. Here’s a feature back for Jay Gruden.

Jones (5-11, 205) ran really well for USC in 2017, showing more decisiveness and displaying more power after gaining weight over last offseason. He also showed a burst at the point of attack with the quickness to rip off some chunk runs. On the season, Jones averaged 5.9 yards per carry for 1,550 yards with 19 touchdowns. He also had 14 receptions for 187 yards and a score. Jones ran for 1,082 yards in 2016 and 987 yards as a sophomore. Jones is an athletic and versatile back in the mold of Jamaal Charles.

College Football News

While not a desperate need pick, Jones is a good value selection here with a whole world of upside at a great spot. It’ll be a pick between Derrius Guice and Jones, with the slippery style of the former USC star getting him called here.

Kerryon Johnson, RB, Auburn

Bleacher Report(Miller)

The ‘Skins addressed their defensive line woes by taking Da’Ron Payne with the No. 13 pick, but they have to help out new quarterback Alex Smith with a talented running back. Kerryon Johnson is one of the best left on the board, as he has good size at 6’0” and incredible quickness that should also allow him to pitch in on kick returns.

Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State


Goedert very easily could have gone at the tail end of the first round, and will pair well with Jordan Reed.

Bleacher Report(Tansey)

James Daniels, C, Iowa

Very quick and technically proficient, Daniels improves the talent level along the interior line on offense.

USA Today

Another accomplished Hawkeye technician, he’d offer a nice boost to a line that lost C Spencer Long to the Jets in free agency and could also use help at guard.

NFL Trade Rumors

Austin Corbett, C/G, Nevada


Corbett is a collegiate left tackle who is expected to move inside, where he has the potential to quickly develop into an effective starter. His best fit could be at center, where the Redskins have a pressing need.

Isaiah Oliver, CB, Colorado

NFL Mocks

The Redskins had to surrender Kendall Fuller to the Chiefs this offseason, and they also lost Bashaud Breeland to free agency. Isaiah Oliver knows how to get his hands on the football and did it more than anyone else in the country last season, racking up almost 30 pass breakups.

Donte Jackson, CB, LSU

Sporting News

Jackson is a fast player with adequate length, and the Redskins want to add depth to their secondary. Jackson carries high grades from NFL teams.

Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn

Fantasy Pros

At this point, the Redskins are watching cornerbacks fly off the board and don’t want to be left out. They need at least one cornerback, if not two of them in this draft, and Davis should be able to take the place of the departed Bashaud Breeland at RCB.

Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa

NDT Scouting(Marino)

Jackson’s ball skills are a welcome addition opposite of Josh Norman.

Ronnie Harrison, S, Alabama


Alabama strong safety sets tone in Skins secondary.

Jessie Bates, S, Wake Forest
