      Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mock Drafts, Camps, Roster Predictions, 2018


      Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land.

      Today we bring you our latest mock of the 2018 offseason and there are some changes. The combine arrives in less than two weeks and the Redskins will be evaluating more prospects. BBQ will cover the combine with periodic updates.

      We hope you enjoyed the guest mock earlier in the week. It was nice of Nathan Britton to share some of his thoughts with us and give more insights from another perspective. We will have another mock next week from a surprise guest.

      Free agency is inching closer and the 2018 offseason is now gaining some steam. The format for the mocks this offseason will feature shorter descriptions this year for each player. Time constraints from the fall and early winter have forced us to cram a lot of research into a smaller period of time.

      Feel free to offer your own ideas about the draft, free agency, team cuts, team additions, and anything else related to these subjects. Too, we’d like to see your mocks if you are so inclined.

      An extra note: These mocks may not necessarily be what BBQ wants or what the members at BGO may prefer. These mocks are designed to try and get into the mind of the Redskins brain trust and see what they will do.

      Without any further delays, let’s take a look at the latest mocks of 2018.

      Team Needs:
      Running Back (?)
      Wide Receiver
      Tight End (?)
      Left Guard
      Defensive Tackle
      Inside Linebacker (?)
      Strike Safety (?)

      Round One: Minkah Fitzpatrick, CB/SS/FS, Alabama
      Last year a special player from Alabama magically dropped to the Redskins in round one. Could it happen again? Fitzpatrick is very special and if he drops, then the team should be sprinting to the podium.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Rashaan Evans, ILB, Alabama
      Billy Price, OG/C, Ohio St.
      Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame
      Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama
      Roquan Smith, ILB, Georgia
      Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama
      Tremaine Edmunds, OLB, Virginia Tech

      Round Two: Will Hernandez, OG, Texas-El Paso
      The powerful left guard fills a major need as Hernandez could be a mainstay for a dozen years or more.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Ronald Jones, RB, Southern California
      James Washington, WR, Oklahoma St.
      Derrius Guice, RB, Louisiana St.
      Tim Settle, DT, Virginia Tech
      Sony Michel, RB, Georgia
      Isaiah Wynn, OG, Georgia

      Round Four: Dante Pettis, WR, Washington
      Pettis could go a round higher, but he would be a good value pick here. Good receiving skills, but is also a superb kick returner.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Justin Jones, DT, North Carolina St.
      Wyatt Teller, OG, Virginia Tech
      Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona St.
      Frank Ragnow, OC/OG, Arkansas
      Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn St.
      Korey Robertson, WR, Southern Mississippi
      Uchenna Nwosu, OLB, Southern California
      Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota St.
      Kyzir White, SS, West Virginia

      Round Five: Siran Neal, SS/FS/CB/ST, Jacksonville St.
      A versatile defensive back who could likely step in at the corner slot position immediately.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin
      Allen Lazard, WR, Iowa St.
      Micah Kiser, ILB, Virginia
      Riley Ferguson, QB, Memphis
      Greg Stroman, CB, Virginia Tech
      B.J. Hill, DT, North Carolina St.

      Round Six: Chase Litton, QB, Marshall
      A bigger/taller prospect that would have the luxury of learning behind a seasoned veteran. Long term starter potential.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Brad Bozeman, C, Alabama
      Kyle Lauletta, QB, Richmond
      Michael Gallup, WR, Colorado St.
      Adonis Alexander, CB, Virginia Tech
      K.C. McDermott, G/OT, Miami
      Quin Blanding, SS, Virginia
      Poona Ford, DT, Texas

      Round Seven: Jake Wieneke, WR, South Dakota St.
      Coming from a lesser known program and conference, Wieneke actually has excellent skills and is an underrated prospect.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Darren Carrington, WR, Utah
      Brendan Mahon, G/OT, Penn St.
      Mike White, QB, Western Kentucky
      Brandon Facyson, CB, Virginia Tech
      Cam Phillips, WR, Virginia Tech
      Coleman Shelton, OG/C, Washington

      Round Seven: Folorunso Fatukasi, DT/DE, Connecticut
      A late round prospect who was a defensive tackle for the Huskies, but could also see time at end on the next level.

      Undrafted Free Agent Prospects:
      Andrew Trumbetti, OLB, Notre Dame
      Cole Reyes, SS, North Dakota
      Jester Weah, WR, Pittsburgh
      Jordan Thomas, CB, Oklahoma
      Donovan Wilson, CB, Texas A&M
      Ryan Finley, QB, North Carolina St.
      Reggie Carter, ILB, Georgia
      Eddy Peneiro, K, Florida
      Drew Bailey, DE/DT, Louisville
      Cody O’Connell, OG, Washington St.
      Walter Brady, OLB, Middle Tennessee St.
      Jeb Blazevich, TE, Georgia
      Bruce Hector, DE/DT, South Florida
      Evan Berry, KR/FS, Tennessee

      There is the latest mock of the 2018 offseason. We will have another guest mock early next week and return with a mock of our own late next week. The draft will be here before you know it, but we have many mocks in the weeks and months ahead. See you as we go along.

      Hail To The Redskins!
