      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 ...

      Mock My Draft

      Round 1> Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor /// Height: 6-2. Weight: 310. /// Projected 40 Time: 5.14. /// Projected Round: 1-2. In 2015, Billings totaled 39 tackles, 14 for a loss and 5.5 sacks
      About 25 sec's in when he chases down a receiver from behind.

      A'Shawn Robinson, DT, Alabama (I think he's gone before he gets to pick 21. Still think Billings is a better fit.) In 2015, Robinson recorded 46 tackles with 7.5 for a loss and 3.5 ...

      Redskins Park

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      Opening statement:
      “We have got four guys questionable – [Quinton] Dunbar with his quad, Dashon Goldson with his shoulder/rib, Matt Jones with his hip and Perry Riley with his foot. Everybody else will be probable.”

      On RB Matt Jones:
      “Yeah, I’m not ruling him out yet but he didn’t do much today. He did a little bit and ran around just a little bit, we’ll see tomorrow. Not very encouraged, no.”

      On CB Quinton Dunbar and the role CB Cary Williams will play Sunday:
      “Quinton he had a little bit better day today following up yesterday. Again that’ll be how he progresses in the treatment room, we’ll see how he is. As far as Cary is concerned, I think he’s picked up the defense well. I don’t have any ...

      Redskins Park

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      Opening statement:
      “Did not participate was Chris Baker, non-injury. His wife had a baby – baby girl – so congratulations to Chris. Hopefully she looks like his wife [laughter]. Limited was [Quinton] Dunbar with his quad, [Dashon] Goldson with his shoulder and rib, [Jason] Hatcher with his neck and knee, Matt Jones with his hip and Perry Riley with his foot.”

      On CB Quinton Dunbar:
      “He had a good day today. He did some team work today which was good to see. He showed some bursts of speed. Just a matter of how it recuperates and how he does tomorrow and how he feels. I think the signs are pointing in a positive direction with him.”

      On RB Matt Jones:
      “We’re still working through Matt. Matt’s still a little sore, was very limited again today. We’ll look at him again tomorrow and see how he does."

      On QB Kirk Cousins organizing every 15-minute segment of his day and how that compares to others:
      “I don’t know if that’s normal [laughter], but most quarterbacks do have some unique qualities about themselves and that’s ...

      In spite of having a 10-6 record, the Green Bay Packers are suffering through a period during which they are simply not playing up to the level people are accustomed to seeing from them-not their fanbase, sports media or casual observers have failed to notice the cripplking effects of major ijuries (Jordy Nelson's loss looks to be huge-along with Sam Shields but Shields just might be ok to play Sunday)), less than the usual hyper-competent levels of execution-even Rodgers looks less ...

      Redskins Park

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      Opening statement:
      "Limited were Dashon Goldson with his shoulder and his rib, [Jason] Hatcher with his neck and knee, Matt Jones with his hip, Perry Riley with his foot and [Quinton] Dunbar with his quad. Full participation was [Chris] Thompson with his toe, Jeron Johnson with his chest, Trent Williams with his knee, DeSean Jackson with his knee and [Dashaun] Phillips with his neck stinger.”

      On his level of confidence in C Kory Lichtensteiger:
      "I feel good about it. He's been here in all the meetings, obviously, so from a mental standpoint he's good to go. We'll keep him after here today and let him get his pads on a bang around a bit to see how he feels. So that will be telling tale."

      On Lichtensteiger's intangibles:
      "Well, intangibles, he's like another quarterback on the field. Very, very intelligent, not to say Josh [LeRibeus] isn't, but he's got a great handle on the offense – his calls. Obviously his snaps are very good. He's very quick getting up to the second level. You know, it's just a matter of him getting back into football shape and making sure that he's in that position and then physically to make sure he bangs around and feels good with that shoulder and arm, but he looks good so far."

      On if there are long-term health concerns with DB Kyshoen Jarrett:
      "As far as Kyshoen is concerned, we're obviously optimistic, but you never know. That's something that ...

      Week seventeen is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Cowboys. The Redskins continued their winning ways and now they are riding a four game streak. It should be noted that yearly grades and evaluations will be postponed by at least one week as BBQ is in playoff mode. So now it is time to make some sense of it all as BBQ hands out grades and evaluations. Feel free to offer your own grades, evaluations, and opinions. Also, we have some ...
