    • BGO Guest Mock 4/3/19: Jacob Camenker (Riggo's Rag/NBC Sports Boston)


      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 final guest mock of the 2019 off-season and it comes from a sports media analyst/writer/editor/content creator – Jacob Camenker. He is a digital content creator for NBC Sports Boston. He also serves as the editor of Riggo’s Rag. If that is not enough, Jacob has been busy in recent years as a game summary contributor at WalterFootball.com, a videographer for the Amherst College football program, and a fantasy football writer for Sporting News. Jacob is busy indeed, but he found the time to produce the final guest mock of the season.

      I contacted Jacob early last week and he enthusiastically accepted the invitation to share a mock with us this year. After reading his mock last night, I was very impressed with the picks and the detailed scouting reports. He understands the game and knows what the Redskins need. We’re grateful that Jacob has shared some of his vast knowledge with us today.

      BBQ has enjoyed posting these guest mocks with you in recent weeks. It became a popular feature last year and now we can safely say that it is a nice addition to the BBQ off-season blog. Special thanks go to Steve Seufert, Ian Cummings, Dana Sparkman, Matt Valdovinos, Nathan Britton, Mark Tyler, Robbie Duncan, Steve Shoup, and Jacob. Collectively, that is a lot of football knowledge and it has been a pleasure to read these mocks.

      In this mock from Jacob, 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 Jacob’s mock.


      Jacob’s Seven Round Mock:

      Round 1, Pick 15: EDGE Montez Sweat, Mississippi State
      Given the strength in the top-tier of the edge rusher class this year, I’m a fan of the Redskins landing a pass rusher in the first round. The question becomes, which one will be available? Right now, I think that Brian Burns is likely to be on the board, but Montez Sweat could also be available. And if Sweat is on the board, I would take him without hesitation.
      Sweat is a well-rounded edge player who should fit well in the Redskins’ scheme. Sweat had a stellar combine and was much faster than expected in the 40-yard dash and looked good in the drills. On tape, Sweat shows a good combination of strength, athletic ability, and has a very good first step. He has the production (22.5 sacks in two seasons with the Bulldogs) to back up his film and traits. He should be a great player at the NFL level and would be an ideal complement to Ryan Kerrigan.
      I wouldn’t count out a quarterback from being the pick here either, and I think that the team will take a long look at whatever passer is on the board. As of right now, I think that Daniel Jones would be the only quarterback on the board, so depending on their thoughts on him, they could elect to select Jones.

      Round 2, Pick 14: WR Deebo Samuel, South Carolina
      It would be more than ideal to land Deebo Samuel in the second round. Samuel is a great route runner who has excellent speed and terrific separation skills. He was able to grab 11 touchdowns last year and function as a red-zone threat despite his smaller 5-11 frame. And that stems from his great route running ability that should easily translate to the NFL.
      Samuel will be a No. 2 receiver at the very least, and he could end up being a similar player to Pierre Garcon or Anquan Boldin. Adding him would do a lot to improve the ‘Skins’ lackluster receiving corps.

      Round 3, Pick 12: OL Connor McGovern, Penn State
      The Ereck Flowers signing is a nice upside move for the Redskins. That said, they need to add some depth on the interior offensive line. They need someone to challenge Flowers for a starting job and they need a backup center. Connor McGovern could fit the bill here.
      McGovern (6-5, 308 pounds) has been steadily rising throughout the draft process. He was a rock-solid starter while at Penn State and his versatility on the interior line will make him a coveted potential starter on Day 3. He is a well-rounded blocker and should certainly be an upgrade over what the team had at the position last year.

      Round 3, Pick 32: QB Brett Rypien, Boise State
      The Redskins are going to take a quarterback at some point in the draft. Right or wrong, the team needs young depth at the position. Ideally, they’ll wait to address the position until the middle rounds, as they could trade for Josh Rosen or target a top quarterback in the 2020 class as their long-term starter.
      In terms of mid-round players to land at the position, Brett Rypien is a good pickup. Rypien is an underrated passer and possesses good accuracy and field vision. He doesn’t have the strongest arm and may not develop into anything more than a backup at the NFL level, but he does have a high floor. So, he’s unlikely to bust and should have a chance to develop into a decent starter.
      Rypien can challenge Case Keenum and Colt McCoy for the starting job and may have a chance at winning. Rypien also profiles similarly to McCoy as a prospect, so perhaps he could learn how to maximize his skill set from McCoy.

      Round 5, Pick 15: WR Hunter Renfrow, Clemson
      The ‘Skins definitely need multiple receiving weapons in this draft class. After getting a potential burner and outside receiver in Samuel, they’ll target some slot competition in Hunter Renfrow.
      Renfrow is undersized, but he catches almost everything thrown to him. His hands are amazing. There’s no reason to expect that to change in the NFL. Renfrow would challenge Trey Quinn for the starting role in the slot and would give the team much better depth at the position.

      Round 5, Pick 35: TE Foster Moreau, LSU
      The offensive makeover continues. Washington doesn’t necessarily need a tight end, but Vernon Davis and Jordan Reed are both starting to get older and may not be with the team long-term. This is a good tight end class, and Foster Moreau has a lot of upside and potential.
      Moreau could spend a year developing as a receiving option before eventually taking over as the Redskins’ starter at the position. He didn’t get much of a chance to showcase his receiving talent in LSU’s run-heavy offense, so perhaps he can out-produce his draft slot.

      Round 6, Pick 33: S Delvon Randall, Temple
      The signing of Landon Collins really helped to address the issues that the Redskins had at safety. They could opt to target another prospect at the position in the first three rounds but given that they have a couple of former fourth-round picks on the roster (Montae Nicholson and Troy Apke), they may elect to wait. If they do, Delvon Randall would be a good pickup.
      Randall has really good instincts and is a reactive playmaker. Randall has logged four interceptions in each of the past three seasons, so he’s consistent in that regard. He could be an underrated addition to the secondary and would be a good backup at the very least.

      Round 7, Pick 13: CB Clifton Duck, Appalachian State
      Speaking of players with great interception totals, Clifton Duck has also grabbed 12 interceptions in the past three years. He’s a bit undersized (5-10) and played at a lower level, but if his ball skills translate, he could become a solid slot corner. Duck would be a nice upside grab and might be a potential practice squad stash candidate if he can’t beat out the other corners on the Redskins roster (of which there are a lot).

      Round 7, Pick 39: OT Trey Pipkins, Sioux Falls
      Pipkins has a massive frame at 6-6, 309 pounds, with 33 7/8 inch arms. He will be a developmental prospect at the tackle position, especially since he played at a smaller school, but the Redskins could use some youth to develop behind Trent Williams and Morgan Moses. The ‘Skins had some success in turning Ty Nsekhe into a quality swing tackle, so perhaps they could work on developing Pipkins in a similar way (though Nsekhe had a lot more professional experience before landing in Washington).


      BBQ’s Thoughts:

      Thanks to Jacob Camenker 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, Jacob. Feel free to comment on any aspect of what he mocked to the Redskins.

      This is the final guest mock for the 2019 off-season. Again, thanks to all of the experts who contributed to the 2019 series. BBQ will have another mock on Friday and there will be continuing updates on prospects.
