    • BBQ Latest Mock: 4/18/19


      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 arrives one week from today and the countdown is now set to maximum heat! 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 bring you a mock that has multiple trades. BBQ believes that the Redskins will seek to make such moves 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 NFL Draft: 7
      - Days until OTAs: 32
      - Days until mandatory mini-camp: 49
      - Days until the first NFL preseason game: 105
      - Days until the 2019 Regular Season Opener: 140

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

      Pre-Draft Trade
      The Redskins trade a 2020 second round pick to the Arizona Cardinals for quarterback Josh Rosen. As part of the deal, the Redskins trade Case Keenum to the Cardinals and receive a 2019 sixth round pick.


      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
      T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
      Clelin Ferrell, OLB, Clemson
      Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
      Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio St.
      D.K. Metcalf, WR, Mississippi
      Montez Sweat, Edge/OLB, Mississippi St. (Health Concern [Heart])
      Jonah Williams, OT/OG, Alabama
      Noah Fant, TE, Iowa


      Round Two: A.J. Brown, WR, Mississippi
      The Redskins need playmakers on offense, especially wide receiver. A.J. Brown is one of the best in the 2019 draft and he would have an immediate and positive effect on the receiving corps. Decent separation from corners and safeties. Effective on all routes. Strong hands. Significantly improved on his drop rate from the previous season. Very smart after the catch and can gain extra yardage. Will actually improve at the next level as the offense at Ole Miss limited a very talented wide receiving corps.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Nasir Adderly, FS/SS, Delaware
      Kelvin Harmon, WR, North Carolina St.
      Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St.
      N'Keal Harry, WR, Arizona St.
      Jaylon Ferguson, OLB, Louisiana Tech
      Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
      Will Grier, QB, West Virginia (Past Character Issues)
      Chris Lindstrom, OG, Boston College
      Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa St.
      Taylor Rapp, FS, Washington
      Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma


      Round Three: Trade
      The Redskins trade down in the third round and obtain a fourth round selection.


      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
      Jachai Polite, Edge/OLB, Florida (Character Issues, Interviews Poorly)
      Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M
      Andy Isabella, WR, Massachusetts
      Irv Smith, TE, Alabama
      Armani Hooker, FS, Iowa
      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: Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama St.
      Howard is a talented, but somewhat raw prospect at the tackle position. He is not a long term starter, but is better suited to being a backup swing tackle in the future. He will need some extra time to adjust to the league, but he could be called upon later in the season for spot duty. Excellent size. A younger version of Ty Nsekhe, but with a higher ceiling. Demonstrates good footwork and creates leverage, but only if he is established in his stance first. Howard will need to learn that speed rushers are much faster in the NFL and realize that weak FCS competition is many steps lower. With good coaching, Howard may carve out a career of ten years or more.

      Possible Picks:
      Jalen Jelks, OLB, Oregon
      Dru Samia, OG, Oklahoma
      Miles Boykin, WR, Notre Dame
      DaMarkus Lodge, WR, Mississippi
      Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn
      Oshane Ximines, OLB, Old Dominion
      Hunter Renfrow, WR, Clemson
      Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia
      Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern


      Round Five: Terry McLaurin, WR, Ohio St.
      McLaurin is overrated by some talent evaluators and underrated by others. He has a limited body of work from his time as a Buckeye, but he could offer good value at this juncture of the draft. Solid route runner on the shorter patterns, but not a burner when the field is stretched. Compares to a younger Pierre Garcon, but will need some time to adjust at the next level. Very good blocking skills on longer runs and various passes downfield. He will likely never be a WR1, but could become a very good WR2.

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


      Round Five (Comp Pick): Lester Cotton, OG, Alabama
      Cotton is a sizable guard that is very strong and rarely makes crippling mistakes. Great presence on the inside. Average speed, but can pull effectively to either side when needed. Has played against quality competition in the SEC and held his own each season. He can have dominant streaks, but is mostly a solid guard who is better in the rushing offense and needs some work in pass protection.

      Round Six: Gardner Minshew, QB, Washington St.
      Remember the last time when the Redskins added two quarterbacks in the same year? It could happen again. Minshew is a product of Coach Mike Leach’s gunslinger program, but the Cougar signal caller could become a reliable backup option and possibly a starter at the next level. Solid pocket presence. He has coachable skills and possesses a good arm along with decent size. Will certainly need time to develop and could be a candidate for the practice squad.

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


      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.


      Round Seven: Olamide Zaccheaus, WR, Virginia
      How would you like a receiver who has running back skills and combines his talents to look like a Larry Centers and Chris Thompson type of player? Highly underrated. Lack of height will hurt him in the draft (5’8”, 200), but he has the speed and power to be a much more durable player than Thompson. He has been the leading receiver for Virginia over the years.

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


      Round Seven (Comp Pick): Joe Dineen, ILB, Kansas
      Joe Dineen is a tackling machine and is superb in both the rushing defense and pass coverage. However, he will need to make his marks on special teams early in his career. He is deceptively quick and rarely makes mistakes. If Dineen can find his niche as a special teamer and as a quality backup as a linebacker, then his career in the NFL could be a lengthy stay.


      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
      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
