    • BGO Guest Mock Draft: Nathon Britton, Riggo's Rag

      Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2019

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

      Today, we bring you the latest guest mock of the off-season and it comes from a Redskins fan and pundit – Nathan Britton of Riggo’s Rag and the Riggo’s Rag Podcast where he is a contributor and analyst. Nathan provides detailed insights on the Redskins and you can catch him cheering for the Nats and Caps.

      I contacted Nathan early last week and he was ready to bring in March like a lion with this latest guest mock. After reading his mock last night, I was very impressed with the picks and the scouting reports. Nathan understands the game and knows what the Redskins need. We’re grateful that he has shared some of his vast knowledge with us today.

      BBQ will continue the guest mocks each week until early next month and we will feature a Redskins fan/mock specialist. It became a popular feature last year and we are happy to bring it back to BGO.

      In this mock from Nathan, he looks across the college football landscape for several prospects that could help the Redskins become a better team. I enjoyed looking at his mock and I hope you will enjoy it as well.

      Without any further delays, let’s take a look at Nathan’s mock.

      Nathan’s Seven Round Mock:

      Round 1; Pick traded for Josh Rosen
      QB Kyler Murray going 1.1 has gained real steam over the past week, and Kyler’s measurables at the combine may have sealed the deal. Washington has no money to go and spend on a free agent QB, and really wouldn’t want too. Having your options of Ryan Tannehill or Nick Foles is a less than ideal situation. The Redskins whiffed on the Alex Smith project and while it wasn’t entirely their fault, it’s where we are. Washington’s FO will be desperate to get a quick fix and put butts in seats for next season. Rosen does that. In a class considered to be weak at the QB position, the Redskins get their man.

      Round 2: Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida
      Polite is a talented pass rusher whose skills should have him in the top half of round one. However, a disastrous combine with bad interviews, workouts, and an injury that some teams are skeptical about, Polite probably takes a tumble. The Redskins benefit and grab the young pass rusher in the second round. He will fill in opposite of Ryan Kerrigan, replacing Preston Smith who will depart via free agency and filling one of the biggest needs on the team. If he can keep his head on straight the Redskins may get a Derrius Guice-esque steal in Polite.

      Round 3: Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, WR, Oklahoma
      This is most likely impossible for Brown to fall to the middle of round three but let’s pretend, shall we? Brown is an explosive wideout from Oklahoma, bringing with him big play potential and quick twitch in the middle of the field that will allow him to gain separation from defenders, and create yards after the catch. Brown is probably a day two talent but recently had surgery to go in and repair a Lisfranc injury, which could push him down some team’s boards. Due to fear of the injury lingering or causing him to miss substantial time, Brown would be a great grab for Washington filling an area of need in Washington’s lackluster offense.

      Round 3, compensatory: Ryan Bates, OG/OT, Penn St.
      Bates is a tall strong lineman who will most likely be pushed inside at the NFL level. He has a smaller frame and is better suited inside rather than out. Washington needs to finally fill the mammoth sized whole beside Trent Williams, and Bates may be the man to do the job. Working with good arm length and strength, he should be able to work nicely alongside one of the league’s best tackles and an intelligent center in Chase Roullier, who has developed into a nice piece for Washington. Bates can also swing out to play tackle should Williams miss time due to another nagging injury. This is a pick for the now, and the future in Washington.

      Round 4: Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix

      Round 5: Lil’ Jordan Humphrey, WR, Texas
      Hell of a name right? Humphrey is tall wideout measuring at 6’4 with 32.5 inch arms and good sized hands. He isn’t a burner but has the frame and hands allow him to go up and over corners to make crucial grabs. He has the size to absorb hits over the middle of the field and the ability to keep moving after first contact. He could really compliment Jordan Reed on second or third and medium plays giving whoever the signal caller for Washington is a wider range of security across the field. I think he would be a great addition to Washington’s underwhelming receiving core.

      Round 5, Comp pick: Savion Smith, CB, Alabama
      Josh Norman has dropped off each year since signing in Washington and has a hefty cap number in 2019. Washington doesn’t have a ton of cap room and does have a ton of holes. It is also rumored the team has eyes on free agent to be Landon Collins. Should New York let the safety hit the market, Washington probably will make him target number one. Collins’ admitted love for the Redskins and idol Sean Taylor could make Washington his number one. That said Norman may be shown the door to make room and thus a new corner must be brought in. Smith is more of a project than a plug and play corner, but his height and speed make him a worthwhile gamble for a team that has had success developing young corners. Smith is a big physical corner who could develop into a nice piece for Washington’s improving defense. Having the tools needed to become a decent press corner, Smith could be a nice piece to bring late round and see if the Dunbar effect could work with him as well. Washington needs more youth in the secondary and Smith is a great place to start.

      Round 6: Foster Moreau, TE, LSU
      Jordan Reed isn’t getting younger or less injury prone, Vernon Davis is a likely cap cut and Jeremy Sprinkle is unproven. Washington needs tight end depth and they find it in LSU’s Moreau. Tall and fast Moreau comes it at 6’4 250 and ran a 4.6 and put up 22 reps on the bench, Moreau can do it all. I don’t know how many of you watch LSU’s infuriating offense but it’s very run heavy, meaning Moreau is a willing and solid blocking tight end, something Washington lacks. Grabbing him late round is great value for an overlooked need on Washington’s low powered offense. Should he be taken, he will become a multi-formational tool for blocking and sneaking out for a quick dump off here and there.

      Round 7: J.R. Reed, Safety, Georgia
      Troy Apke, Montae Nicholson, yep the gang’s all here! Washington needs more safety help and while it would be a wonderful grab to get Collins, it’s far from a guarantee. Reed is a solid in the box run stuffing safety that could come down and help deal with tight ends and spy RBs out of the backfield. Adding a safety help is a must and Reed provides a great rotational help at a weak spot for Washington. At 6’1 and 195 he needs to add some weight to help avoid injuries at the next level, but could serve useful as a utility/ special teams player.

      Round 7 Comp pick: Joe Dineen Jr., ILB, Kansas
      A decent sized backer who can do a little of everything. Finished 2018 with 147 tackles, 14 TFL including 3 sacks, a few broken up passes and one interception. He would fill in nicely at a rotation of middle linebackers that is highlighted by possibly Rueben Foster, if he isn’t suspended and whichever of Mason Foster and Zach Brown that survives being cut, my guess is neither. Dineen is a bigger more athletic Will Compton who will play hard and finish with some noticeable plays. A great get as the team’s final selection in the 2019 draft.

      BBQ’s Thoughts:

      Thanks to Nathan Britton for all of his research and a superb look at what the Redskins could do in the draft. He put a lot of thought and work to this mock – thank you, Nathan. Feel free to comment on any aspect of what he mocked to the Redskins.

      BBQ will have another mock draft on Friday, thoughts on the opening of free agency next week, and reactions to the Combine.
