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


      Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land and guests from social media – we hope you become a member here.

      Today we bring you our latest mock of the 2018 off-season and there are some changes. The Redskins are evaluating more prospects each day and the draft is just over two weeks away. BBQ continues to cover the 2018 offseason now with multiple updates each week. This week we have three mocks (Today, Wednesday, and Friday) and next week we will go to four mocks (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday). The frequency will continue to increase as late April approaches.

      The format for the mocks this off-season 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 minds 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: Da’Ron Payne, DT/DE, Alabama
      Payne is the space eating defensive tackle that Jim Tomsula has been coveting since his arrival at Redskins Park, but the Crimson Tide prospect can play all along the line.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Leighton Vander Esch, OLB, Boise St.
      Minkah Fitzpatrick, CB/SS/FS, Alabama
      Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa
      Roquan Smith, ILB, Georgia
      Derwin James, FS, Florida St.
      Vita Vea, DT, Washington
      Harold Landry, OLB, Boston College
      Derrius Guice, RB, Louisiana St.

      Round Two: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
      Powerful runner. Excellent between the tackles. Difficult to bring down and rarely goes down on the first contact.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Rashaan Evans, ILB, Alabama
      Will Hernandez, OG, Texas-El Paso
      Ronald Jones, RB, Southern California
      Rashaad Penny, RB, San Diego St.
      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 Four: Braden Smith, OG, Auburn
      Overlooked by many pundits, but certainly known to football scouts. Tall frame – will need to add about twenty pounds of bulk. Could start from day one.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Nathan Shepherd, DT, Fort Hays St.
      Dante Pettis, WR, Washington
      B.J. Hill, DT, North Carolina St.
      Wyatt Teller, OG, Virginia Tech
      Josey Jewell, ILB, Iowa
      Uchenna Nwosu, OLB, Southern California
      Korey Robertson, WR, Southern Mississippi
      Dalton Schultz, TE, Stanford
      Kyzir White, SS, West Virginia

      Round Five: Siran Neal, SS/FS/CB, Jacksonville St.
      Neal is a versatile defensive back who could likely step in at the corner slot position immediately.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin
      Siran Neal, SS/FS/CB, Jacksonville St.
      Micah Kiser, ILB, Virginia
      Quenton Meeks, CB, Stanford
      Sean Welsh, G/C, Iowa
      Allen Lazard, WR, Iowa St.
      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 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:
      Taylor Hearn, OG, Clemson
      Brendan Mahon, G/OT, Penn St.
      Greg Stroman, CB, Virginia Tech
      Arden Key, OLB, Louisiana St.
      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 off-season. We will have three mocks this week, a free agency update tomorrow, and a prospects update on Thursday. The draft will be here before you know it, but we have many mocks coming in the days ahead. See you as we go along.
