      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 ended last week in Indianapolis and the Redskins are evaluating more prospects. BBQ will continues to cover the 2018 offseason now with multiple updates each week.

      We will have a new guest mock on Monday – be sure to look for it.

      Free agency arrived this week and the 2018 offseason will now kick into high gear. 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 mock of 2018.

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

      Round One: Vita Vea, DT, Washington
      Jim Tomsula wants a big and powerful body in the middle of his defensive line and gets his wish.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Rashaan Evans, ILB, Alabama
      Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa
      Roquan Smith, ILB, Georgia
      Derwin James, FS, Florida St.
      Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame
      Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama
      Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama
      Tremaine Edmunds, OLB, Virginia Tech

      Round Two: Darius Leonard, ILB, South Carolina St.
      Leonard impressed during his final season in college and is still turning heads with his superior skills and athleticism. Solid against the run and pass.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Ronald Jones, RB, Southern California
      Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville
      Will Hernandez, OG, Texas-El Paso
      Tim Settle, DT, Virginia Tech
      James Washington, WR, Oklahoma St.
      Derrius Guice, RB, Louisiana St.
      Sony Michel, RB, Georgia
      Isaiah Wynn, OG, Georgia

      Round Four: Uchenna Nwosu, OLB, Southern California
      An ultra-versatile edge who knocks down passes often. Can drop back in coverage. Candidate for the hybrid role at strike safety in various packages.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona St.
      Dante Pettis, WR, Washington
      Kyle Lauletta, QB, Richmond
      Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame
      Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn St.
      Korey Robertson, WR, Southern Mississippi
      Kyzir White, SS, West Virginia
      Josey Jewell, ILB, Iowa

      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
      Fred Warner, OLB, Brigham Young
      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
      Michael Gallup, WR, Colorado St.
      K.C. McDermott, G/OT, Miami
      Adonis Alexander, CB, Virginia Tech
      Quin Blanding, SS, Virginia
      Poona Ford, DT, Texas

      Round Seven: Troy Apke, FS, Penn St.
      Speed, speed, and more speed. Should be an excellent special teams player. Can come in on passing downs and provide solid coverage.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Brendan Mahon, G/OT, Penn St.
      Mike White, QB, Western Kentucky
      Jake Wieneke, WR, South Dakota St.
      Greg Stroman, CB, Virginia Tech
      Evan Berry, KR/FS, Tennessee
      Folorunso Fatukasi, DT/DE, Connecticut
      Coleman Shelton, OG/C, Washington
      Darren Carrington, WR, Utah

      Round Seven: Brandon Facyson, CB, Virginia Tech
      For the second year in a row the Redskins select a cornerback in the final round. An all around good player who has regressed a bit, but is a good prospect.

      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
