A Burgundy and Gold Obsession
    Happy Birthday BGO!

    10 years ago...

    BGO was born! Out of desire to build a different kind of Redskins fan community, one for 'Redskins fans who appreciate adult sensibilities like common sense, reason, and the fact that passion and civility need not be mutually exclusive', BGO opened it's doors on Wednesday, July 15th, 2009. We promised you three things then: to provide a comprehensive, satisfying experience for fans of the Washington Redskins, to foster and encourage a sense of community and tone of mutual respect, and to give our members good old-fashioned customer service. We hope we've lived up to our end of the bargain. You all - our wonderful members, have certainly lived up to yours! Cheers, Happy Birthday BGO, and above all else...Hail! - The BGO Staff

    • BGO Mock Draft 4/5/19

      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.

      The 2019 NFL draft is just under three weeks away and it will be here before you know it! Free agency has entered a dormant phase and should pick up again after May 7. We now have a few ideas about what the team needs in later this month. The process of team building never ends and BBQ is about to take a look at what could happen this spring and summer.

      Today we feature a mock that has a trade. BBQ believes that the Redskins will seek to make such a move in the draft – perhaps several moves.

      Will BBQ match or surpass the success that it had with the 2018 mocks? It will be difficult and very challenging, but it is a task that we embrace. With that kind of success, we truly believe it helps the members of BGO to focus on the players who are prospects that the Redskins are seeking. It feels good to provide everyone here with the kind of service you expect from BBQ.

      Upcoming Dates:
      - Days until the first Redskins workouts: 10
      - Days until the NFL Draft: 20
      - Days until OTAs: 45
      - Days until mandatory mini-camp: 60
      - Days until the first NFL preseason game: 118
      - Days until the 2019 Regular Season Opener: 153

      Without any further delays, let’s take our latest look at the 2019 draft with this mock.

      Round One: Trade
      The Redskins trade down in round one and gain a second and fourth rounder.

      Round One: Brian Burns, OLB, Florida St.
      Brian Burns has been steadily climbing the charts since the end of the 2018 season. Excellent burst off the edge – often leaving left tackles and guards behind. Able to use his hands effectively when pushing aside offensive linemen. Has an array of explosive moves to the quarterback and often forces running backs back to the inside. Collapses pockets regularly. His motor never stops. Quickly notices what the offensive play is designed to do and immediately disrupts it. Ability to play with a hand in the dirt or standing up, thus making Burns able to compete in 3-4 and 4-3 packages.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Cody Ford, G/OT, Oklahoma
      Devin White, ILB, LSU
      Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
      T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
      Clelin Ferrell, OLB, Clemson
      D.K. Metcalf, WR, Mississippi
      Montez Sweat, Edge/OLB, Mississippi St. (Health Concern [Heart])
      Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio St.
      Jonah Williams, OT/OG, Alabama
      Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
      Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma (Interviews Poorly)

      Round Two: N'Keal Harry, WR, Arizona St.
      N'Keal Harry has the size, athleticism, strength, speed, and cerebral qualities to excel at the next level. He can create separation from corners on a consistent basis. Harry is a true red zone target and often wrestles the ball away from any defender. Able to make impressive catches along the sideline, in the open field, and in plenty of traffic. Able to gain significant chunks of yardage after the catch. Above average speed and maneuverability on short routes and slants. Decent blocking skills.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Nasir Adderly, FS/SS, Delaware
      Kelvin Harmon, WR, North Carolina St.
      Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St.
      A.J. Brown, WR, Mississippi
      Jaylon Ferguson, OLB, Louisiana Tech
      Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
      Round Two: Will Grier, QB, West Virginia (Past Character Issues)
      Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa St.
      Jachai Polite, Edge/OLB, Florida (Character Issues, Interviews Poorly)
      Taylor Rapp, FS, Washington

      Round Two: Chris Lindstrom, OG, Boston College
      Lindstrom is an all-around solid guard and could be an effective starter on the left side for a decade or more. Fundamentally sound. Solid lead blocker on counter plays and sweeps/jet sweeps. Exceptional in pass protection and the rushing offense. Solid blocker downfield on screens and short passes.

      Round Three: Kahale Warring, TE, San Diego St.
      A Jack of all trades, but a master of none describes Warring. However, he is a solid tight end and rarely makes mistakes. Strengths include solid blocking skills, decent speed, very good route tree, superb pass protection, situational awareness, and excellent work ethics/positive attitude. Warring’s size (6’5”, 255) and determination make it difficult for defenders to bring him down immediately after a reception.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia
      Caleb Wilson, TE, UCLA
      D’Andre Walker, OLB, Georgia
      Armani Hooker, FS, Iowa
      Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M
      Andy Isabella, WR, Massachusetts
      Irv Smith, TE, Alabama
      Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple
      J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford
      Ryan Finley, QB, North Carolina St.
      Brett Rypien, QB, Boise St.
      Connor McGovern, OC/OG, Penn St.
      Mack Wilson, ILB, Alabama (Character Issues)
      Michael Deiter, OG, Wisconsin

      Round Three (Comp Pick): Deionte Thompson, FS, Alabama
      No Redskins draft is complete without a draftee from Alabama. The Redskins have a need at free safety. The Crimson Tide has one available this off-season and he could be a natural fit for the burgundy and gold. Thompson is an aggressive free safety, but he can over pursue at times. Having Landon Collins as a mentor should help him to improve greatly, but Thompson will need to overcome the poor decision making that he is known for at times. Good height, but should add about fifteen pounds of bulk to his frame. Good speed. Solid range in the open field, but needs to improve footwork just a bit. As a single high safety, Thompson will need to become more disciplined at the next level.

      Round Four: DaMarkus Lodge, WR, Mississippi
      DaMarkus Lodge receives far less attention than his fellow receivers at Ole Miss, but he is very talented and he could be an absolute steal at this juncture. Mississippi has a limited offense playbook and the receivers suffered to a certain degree. Lodge should be in the conversation for one of the better receivers in a very stacked class, but A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf grab more attention from draft analysts. Solid receiver. Good speed. Great blocker. Excellent size. Easily creates separation. Legitimate red zone target. Able to gain extra yardage after a reception. Could have a better career than Metcalf and Brown.

      Possible Picks:
      David Sills, WR, West Virginia
      Jalen Jelks, OLB, Oregon
      Miles Boykin, WR, Notre Dame
      Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn
      Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama St.
      Hunter Renfrow, WR, Clemson
      Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia
      Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern

      Round Five: Devine Ozigbo, RB, Nebraska
      Ozigbo is certainly not the most accomplished running back in the 2019 draft, but he has skills that definitely will serve him well at the next level. At 6’0”, 235, this Cornhusker is strong and powerful. He will not run away from defenders and is not a downhill threat, but Ozigbo will run through those same defenders and can gain five to eight yards with ease. Good receiver on screens and short passes. Typically takes three or four tacklers to bring him down.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Foster Moreau, TE, LSU
      Christian Miller, OLB, Alabama
      Easton Stick, QB, North Dakota St.
      Iman Marshall, CB, Southern California
      Max Scharping, OT/OG, Northern Illinois
      Stanley Morgan, WR, Nebraska
      Maxx Crosby, OLB, Eastern Michigan
      Khalen Saunders, DT, Western Illinois
      Terry Godwin, WR, Clemson
      Lester Cotton, OG, Alabama
      Carl Granderson, OLB, Wyoming
      Corbin Kaufusi, DE, Brigham Young
      Austin Bryant, OLB, Clemson
      Devine Ozigbo, RB, Nebraska
      Juwan Johnson, WR, Penn St.
      Trace McSorley, QB, Penn St.

      Round Five (Comp Pick): Corbin Kaufusi, DE/OLB, Brigham Young
      Kaufusi is a bit raw, but has a ton of potential. He stands 6’9” and weighs in at 285. He can add bulk to his frame and be a true defensive end or play edge. He’s strong, powerful, deceptively quick, and would likely need a year to adjust to the NFL. Kaufusi has a 6’1” sister who can likely out-lift you with considerable ease – tallness and strength runs in the family. Matt Ioannidis was a fifth round selection. Can lightning strike twice?

      Round Six (Comp Pick): Blake Cashman, ILB, Minnesota
      Cashman is a talented and highly underrated inside linebacker. He played in obscurity in the great white north and while the Golden Gophers are not followed closely in the football world, Cashman quietly made a name for himself against quality competition. A bona fide tackling machine. Always around the football and making plays. Solid against the run, but struggles somewhat in coverage. Good speed – can close on the ball quickly. Will need to make his mark initially as a special teams ace.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Khalil Hodge, ILB, Buffalo
      Chuma Edoga, OT, Southern Cal
      Saivion Smith, CB, Alabama
      Mecole Harman, WR, Georgia
      Gardner Minshew, QB, Washington St.
      Nate Davis, OG/OT, UNC-Charlotte
      Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri
      Garrett Brumfield, OG, Louisiana St.
      Tre Watson, ILB, Maryland
      Kingsley Keke, DE/DT, Texas A&M
      Shareef Miller, OLB, Penn St.

      Round Seven: Ulysees Gilbert, ILB, Akron
      If you’re looking for a late round gem that is the model of consistency and with plenty of upside, then Ulysees Gilbert is a perfect selection here. At 6’1” 235, he has prototypical size for an inside linebacker. Gilbert has started since his sophomore year and contributed in every game as a true freshman in 2015. A tackling machine. Solid in coverage (averages several interceptions a year), solid in the rushing defense, solid in the pass rush. Superb athleticism allows him to excel in all three facets, including sacking the quarterback a few times each year. The only knock on him is the lack of quality D1 competition faced.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Jaylen Smith, WR, Louisville
      Ryan Pope, OT, San Diego St.
      Renell Wren, DT, Arizona St.
      Olamide Zaccheaus, WR, Virginia
      Joe Dineen, ILB, Kansas
      Sean Bunting, CB, Central Michigan
      Sione Takitaki, ILB, Brigham Young
      Jalen Hurd, WR, Baylor
      Dakota Allen, ILB, Texas Tech
      Nate Herbig, OG, Stanford
      Keelan Doss, WR, California, Davis
      Daylon Mack, DT, Texas A&M
      Kendall Blanton, TE, Missouri
      Eric Dungey, QB, Syracuse

      Round Seven: Ului Lapuaho, OT, BYU
      It’s no secret that Ty Nsekhe struggled this past season in backup duty and will be in his mid-thirties this year. Ului Lapuaho at 6’7”, 330 is similar in size to Nsekhe and would bring a youthful infusion to the tackles. Hailing from the state of Utah, the massive lineman has served his Mormon mission (Australia) and is likely ready to be a quality backup at the next level.

      UDFA Prospects
      Kevin Wilkins, DT, Rutgers
      Cody Thompson, WR, Toledo
      Nick Linder, OC/OG, Indiana
      Chris Slayton, DT, Syracuse
      Preston Williams, WR, Colorado St. (Character Issues)
      Jimmy Moreland, CB, James Madison
      Dru Samia, OG, Oklahoma
      Sterling Sheffield, OLB, Maine
      Trevon Wesco, TE/FB, West Virginia
      KaVontae Turpin, WR/KR, Texas Christian
      Cole Herdman, TE, Purdue
      Chris Peace, OLB, Virginia
      Tyler Roemer, OT, San Diego St. (Character Issues)
      Jack Fox, P, Rice
      Olive Sagapolu, DT, Wisconsin

      In Conclusion
