      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, including a trade. The Redskins are evaluating more prospects each week and the draft is just over three weeks away. BBQ continues to cover the 2018 offseason now with multiple updates each week. Next week we will go to three mocks (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) and the frequency will increase as late April approaches.

      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: Trade
      The Redskins trade down several positions in round one and gain third and sixth round selections in the process.

      Round One: Derrius Guice, RB, Louisiana St.
      Taking a running back in round one hasn’t been the norm for the Redskins in a long time. Then again, the rushing attack has been anemic for too many years.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Leighton Vander Esch, OLB, Boise St.
      Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa
      Roquan Smith, ILB, Georgia
      Derwin James, FS, Florida St.
      Vita Vea, DT, Washington
      Harold Landry, OLB, Boston College
      Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama
      Derrius Guice, RB, Louisiana St.

      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:
      Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville
      Rashaan Evans, ILB, Alabama
      Ronald Jones, RB, Southern California
      Harrison Phillips, DE/DT, Stanford
      Darius Leonard, ILB, South Carolina St.
      Tim Settle, DT, Virginia Tech
      James Washington, WR, Oklahoma St.
      Sony Michel, RB, Georgia
      Isaiah Wynn, OG, Georgia

      Round Three: Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota St.
      Guess who will not be ready for OTAs? Or mini-camp? Or training camp? Possibly the 2018 season? Guess who may move on from that player?
      Other Possible Targets:
      R.J. McIntosh, DE/DT, Miami
      Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn St.
      Malik Jefferson, ILB, Texas
      Duke Ejiofor, DE, Wake Forest
      Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
      Frank Ragnow, OC/OG, Arkansas
      Lorenzo Carter, OLB, Georgia
      Andrew Brown, DE, Virginia

      Round Four: Nathan Shepherd, DT, Fort Hays St.
      Matt Ioannidis turned out to be a huge steal in the fifth round two years ago. Shepherd will turn out to be a huge steal in the fourth round this year.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Dante Pettis, WR, Washington
      B.J. Hill, DT, North Carolina St.
      Josey Jewell, ILB, Iowa
      Kyle Lauletta, QB, Richmond
      Uchenna Nwosu, OLB, Southern California
      Korey Robertson, WR, Southern Mississippi
      Dalton Schultz, TE, Stanford
      Kyzir White, SS, West Virginia

      Round Five: Micah Kiser, ILB, Virginia
      The Redskins venture down the road and find a good inside linebacker who can also play special teams.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin
      Siran Neal, SS/FS/CB, Jacksonville St.
      Sean Welsh, G/C, Iowa
      Allen Lazard, WR, Iowa St.
      Riley Ferguson, QB, Memphis
      Fred Warner, OLB, Brigham Young
      Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame

      Round Five: 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.

      Round Six: K.C. McDermott, G/OT, Miami
      Having depth and a great deal of flexibility along the offensive line helps the Hurricanes prospect.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Brad Bozeman, C, Alabama
      Dorian O’Daniel, ILB, Clemson
      Adonis Alexander, CB, Virginia Tech
      Michael Gallup, WR, Colorado St.
      Quin Blanding, SS, Virginia
      Poona Ford, DT, Texas

      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.

      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:
      Brendan Mahon, G/OT, Penn St.
      Mike White, QB, Western Kentucky
      Greg Stroman, CB, Virginia Tech
      Teo Redding, WR, Bowling Green
      Brandon Facyson, CB, Virginia Tech
      Darren Carrington, WR, Utah

      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.

      Undrafted Free Agent Prospects:
      Andrew Trumbetti, OLB, Notre Dame
      Cole Reyes, SS, North Dakota
      Jester Weah, WR, Pittsburgh
      Evan Berry, KR/FS, Tennessee
      Jordan Thomas, CB, Oklahoma
      Coleman Shelton, OG/C, Washington
      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

      There is the latest mock of the 2018 offseason. We will have another mock on Friday, three mocks next week, a prospects update on Thursday, and a free agency update on Monday. The draft will be here before you know it, but we have many mocks coming in the weeks ahead. See you as we go along.
