In his Mock Draft version 1.0, NFL.com’s draft analyst Lance Zierlein has four quarterbacks going in the top 10, including the polarizing Kyler Murray, who is the first QB chosen at pick number four overall to the Raiders.
The Redskins are a team in dire need of a quarterback, but Zierlein does not have them receiving help in this area in the first round.
Below are his picks leading up to the Redskins selection at number 15.
Cardinals - Josh Allen EDGE Kentucky
49ers - Rashan Gary EDGE Michigan
Jets - Nick Bosa EDGE Ohio St.
Raiders - Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma
Buccaneers - Quinnen Williams DT Alabama
Giants - Daniel Jones QB Duke
Jaguars - Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio St.
Lions - Montez Sweat EDGE Miss St.
Bills - D.K. Metcalf WR Miss
Broncos - Drew Lock QB Missouri
Bengals - Jawaan Taylor OT Florida
Packers - Jeffery Simmons DT Miss St.
Dolphins - Greedy Williams CB LSU
Falcons - Jonah Williams OT Alabama
Redskins - Jachai Polite Edge Florida
School: Florida | Year: Junior
With the Redskins expecting Alex Smith to miss all of next season, they could opt to find a QB in free agency before bolstering their pass rush with this pick. Polite is slightly undersized, but he offers elite burst and above-average tools to help Washington attack the pocket.
Assuming the draft fell this way, grade this pick for the Redskins.
