      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.

      It’s draft week and the countdown is in its final three days! 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 features a pre-draft trade. BBQ does believe that a trade could happen during the draft – perhaps several trades.

      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: 3
      - Days until OTAs: 28
      - Days until mandatory mini-camp: 45
      - Days until the first NFL preseason game: 101
      - Days until the 2019 Regular Season Opener: 136

      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.

      Round One: Montez Sweat, Edge/OLB, Mississippi St., (Health Concern [Heart], Past Character Issues)
      Sweat is a massively sized edge and most pundits rank him as the third or fourth best OLB in a very loaded class of edge rushers. He is likely to have an immediate impact and an impressive rookie season. Sweat dominated the NFL Combine and established himself as a top tier prospect. The only issue is his health – a heart condition. The Mississippi St. Bulldog is a likely starter from day one and will be a terror to opposing quarterbacks.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Cody Ford, G/OT, Oklahoma
      Devin White, ILB, LSU
      T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
      Brian Burns, OLB, Florida St.
      Clelin Ferrell, OLB, Clemson
      Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
      Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio St.
      D.K. Metcalf, WR, Mississippi
      Jonah Williams, OT/OG, Alabama
      Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

      Round Two: Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
      As an established offensive weapon, Deebo Samuel started to catch the attention of scouts by his second year for the Gamecocks. Excellent route running skills. Superior moves against the elite cornerbacks of the SEC cemented his legacy at South Carolina in 2018. Samuel has solid speed to go with his elusiveness – he can gain major chunks of yardage after a catch. If he has a step on any defender, Samuel is a sure bet to reach the end zone.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Nasir Adderly, FS/SS, Delaware
      A.J. Brown, WR, Mississippi
      Kelvin Harmon, WR, North Carolina St.
      Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St.
      N'Keal Harry, WR, Arizona St.
      Jaylon Ferguson, OLB, Louisiana Tech
      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: Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M
      Sternberger could start from day one, but probably needs to add ten to fifteen pounds of bulk and muscle to his long frame. He is an absolute monster after the catch and can drag a defender (sometimes two defenders) twenty or thirty yards with ease. He has a solid receiving skillset and is not afraid to go over the middle. Fantastic red zone target. Routinely goes up high for jump ball catches. Typically wins any contested catch. Very good blocker, but still some room for improvement.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia
      Caleb Wilson, TE, UCLA
      Jachai Polite, Edge/OLB, Florida (Character Issues, Interviews Poorly)
      Kahale Warring, TE, San Diego St.
      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.
      Deionte Thompson, FS, Alabama
      Connor McGovern, OC/OG, Penn St.
      Mack Wilson, ILB, Alabama (Character Issues)
      Michael Deiter, OG, Wisconsin

      Round Three (Comp Pick): DaMarkus Lodge, WR, Mississippi
      DaMarkus Lodge receives far less attention than his fellow receivers at Ole Miss, but he is very talented and could offer excellent value 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 Ole Miss standouts 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.

      Round Four:
      The Redskins do not have a selection in round four, but we will list players that are possibilities. A trade may occur and a fourth rounder could be a part of that deal.

      Possible Picks:
      Jalen Jelks, OLB, Oregon
      Dru Samia, OG, Oklahoma
      Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama St.
      Miles Boykin, WR, Notre Dame
      Nate Davis, OG/OT, UNC-Charlotte
      Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn
      Oshane Ximines, OLB, Old Dominion
      Hunter Renfrow, WR, Clemson
      Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia
      Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern

      Round Five: Max Scharping, OT/OG, Northern Illinois
      Max Scharping is a good tackle, but he has the skills and traits that will likely move him to the inside at the next level. A bit too stiff to play tackle in the NFL, but he would be much better inside. Good in pass protection. Good in the rushing offense. Would need a year in the league in order to adjust to the next level. Could be a reliable left guard after learning the position. Excellent size. Smart player and quick learner – with such traits, he could be a starter by mid-season.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Iman Marshall, CB, Southern California
      Foster Moreau, TE, LSU
      Christian Miller, OLB, Alabama
      Terry McLaurin, WR, Ohio St.
      Devine Ozigbo, RB, Nebraska
      Stanley Morgan, WR, Nebraska
      Maxx Crosby, OLB, Eastern Michigan
      Lester Cotton, OG, Alabama
      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): Easton Stick, QB, North Dakota St.
      Could the Redskins actually add two quarterbacks in the draft? Absolutely. Easton Stick has been steadily rising on draft boards for several months now. He’s a winner and there have been a few whispers that Stick is a better prospect than another Bison product – Carson Wentz. That’s likely a reach - comparisons aside, Stick can make all the throws accurately. He is also accurate on the run. Consistently goes through his progressions quickly. NDSU utilizes a pro-style system. Very good mechanics. Solid pocket passer, but can effectively scramble when needed – perhaps a bit too much.

      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
      Mecole Harman, WR, Georgia
      Saivion Smith, CB, Alabama
      Gardner Minshew, QB, Washington St.
      David Sills, WR, West Virginia
      Garrett Brumfield, OG, Louisiana St.
      Tre Watson, ILB, Maryland
      Kingsley Keke, DE/DT, Texas A&M
      Shareef Miller, OLB, Penn St.

      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
      Joe Dineen, ILB, Kansas
      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 he has moved on to the Buffalo Bills anyway. 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
      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

      The Redskins comp picks are as follows: Rounds 3, 5, 6, and 7. Comp picks can be traded.
