      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On LB Su’a Cravens:

      "Yeah, there's not a lot of things that he can't do. He's a playmaker. When you're talking about defensive football nowadays, you want to get people who can do multiple things and be versatile in what they do and figure out ways to get the ball back for your offense. He's one of the top guys at his position. He's got position flex. He's a ball hawk. He's a turnover machine and he's a great player. He'd be effective on special teams obviously. He can play in the box at linebacker, there’s a thought he might be able to play some safety. Once we get him in the building, we will figure out a way to get him on the field."

      On DB Kendall Fuller and his knee:

      "A lot went into that. We feel good about his progression from his injury. We think he's going to miss rookie minicamp but there's a chance he could be back for the OTA's. Worst case scenario we think he will be back for training camp. He's too talented of a player to pass up. He can play nickel obviously. There's a big hope for him. He can play outside. He's got great, natural football instincts at the nickel or corner position. Obviously he's got great bloodlines. I think it's a great pick."

      On the value of versatility and flexibility:

      "It's very important. There are so many sub packages ...

      Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2016 (Continual Updates)

      Greetings from BBQ World Headquarters.

      Happy St. George’s Day to our BGO brothers and sisters in England and Canada.

      Offseason free agency is churning along at a much slower pace, but BBQ is here to keep you informed.

      New mocks are coming next week as we head into draft week.

      There has been a disturbance in the Redskins force. Or an awakening in the Redskins force. ...

      Yes. I liked that.

      The 2015 Redskins season was a gift from the Gods. In 2012, Redskins fans dreamt they’d finally hit pay dirt and found a franchise QB after decades of hapless floundering under center. If that weren’t enough to bring joy to the miserable masses, the Skins had lucked into a 6th round RB gem in Alfred Morris.

      If you’d tried to tell any of us what would transpire after that magical 2012 season, we literally would’ve thought you were crazy, hopped up on meth, or both.

      And yet, the 2012 season was a complete mirage. We had not found our franchise QB. Alfred Morris was never to have the kind of season he had in ...

      Okay here's my stab at a Redskin mock. Nowhere near as good as BB's but....

      1 - Kenny Clark*, NT, UCLA
      Height: 6-3. Weight: 310.
      Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
      Projected Round (2016): 1-2.
      1/16/16: Clark notched 75 tackles with 11 tackles for a loss, six sacks and five passes batted in 2015. He was an impactful defender at the point of attack and was very good at stuffing runs. In the pass rush, Clark isn't terrible, but many teams will probably pull him ...
