      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 two 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 and one other 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: 2
      - Days until OTAs: 27
      - Days until mandatory mini-camp: 44
      - Days until the first NFL preseason game: 100
      - Days until the 2019 Regular Season Opener: 135

      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 third round pick to the Arizona Cardinals for quarterback Josh Rosen.


      Round One: Trade
      The Redskins trade down in round one and gain second and sixth round selections.


      Round One: D.K. Metcalf, WR, Mississippi
      The star of the 2019 NFL Combine. The impressive showing in Indianapolis has skyrocketed his status as a probable elite receiver. Has drawn some comparisons to Calvin Johnson. Had a limited final season at Ole Miss due to injury. Tree route was somewhat limited from time spent in an offense that curtailed the receivers. Rated consistently as the number one receiver in the draft. Solid blocker. Superior strength for contested catches. Superb red zone target, especially on fade routes and “jump” balls. Earns highest marks for change of direction skills, yards after catch, and footwork.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Cody Ford, G/OT, Oklahoma
      Montez Sweat, Edge/OLB, Mississippi St., (Health Concern [Heart], Past Character Issues)
      Devin White, ILB, LSU
      T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
      Brian Burns, Edge/OLB, Florida St.
      Clelin Ferrell, Edge/OLB, Clemson
      Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
      Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio St.
      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
      A.J. Brown, WR, Mississippi
      Kelvin Harmon, WR, North Carolina St.
      Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St.
      Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
      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 Two: Jachai Polite, Edge/OLB, Florida (Character Issues, Interviews Poorly)
      Jachai Polite will fall due to some of his interviews and his perceived attitude, but he seems to be fully focused when playing football. He is truly elite and could have an immediate impact opposite Ryan Kerrigan. So why is he not a first rounder? Again – attitude, interviews poorly, and character concerns are an issue. Good speed. Takes several angles towards the quarterback. A likely double digit sack edge rusher in his first year. Big and strong at 6’2”, 260. Deceptive moves can throw a left tackle off at times. He does have a bull rush, but relies more on the way he moves. Very good spin moves. Solid body control and excellent mental focus. Highly competitive at all times.


      Round Three: Kahale Warring, TE, San Diego St.
      A Jack of all trades and a master of none describes Warring, but don’t let that deter you. 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
      Andy Isabella, WR, Massachusetts
      Irv Smith, TE, Alabama
      Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple
      Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M
      J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford
      Ryan Finley, QB, North Carolina St.
      Brett Rypien, QB, Boise St.
      Deionte Thompson, FS, Alabama
      DaMarkus Lodge, WR, Mississippi
      Connor McGovern, OC/OG, Penn St.
      Mack Wilson, ILB, Alabama (Character Issues)
      Michael Deiter, OG, Wisconsin


      Round Three (Comp Pick): Armani Hooker, FS, Iowa
      The Redskins find the perfect complement to Landon Collins. While Collins is a beyond the box strike/strong safety, Hooker is a strictly traditional free safety who has good speed, but lacks an initial quick burst to the ball. However, he makes up for it with superb football instincts. Prefers to play fifteen or twenty yards off the line of scrimmage, but could be a bit closer to the box with Collins present. Superb in the rushing defense when playing closer to the line. Defends fly routes effectively when in zone, single high, and prevent coverages.


      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: Maxx Crosby, Edge/OLB, Eastern Michigan
      Maxx Crosby doesn’t have the elite pass rushing skills that would put him amongst the best, but he does have a steady motor that never quits. He is comparable to Ryan Kerrigan and will need some time to learn the level of intensity that the pro game requires. Good in the rushing defense. Needs some work in the pass rush, but should come with good coaching and determination. Great attitude. Could be a solid player for a decade or more.

      Other Possible Picks:
      Easton Stick, QB, North Dakota St.
      Iman Marshall, CB, Southern California
      Max Scharping, OT/OG, Northern Illinois
      Christian Miller, OLB, Alabama
      Foster Moreau, TE, LSU
      Terry McLaurin, WR, Ohio St.
      Devine Ozigbo, RB, Nebraska
      Stanley Morgan, WR, Nebraska
      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: Saivion Smith, CB, Alabama
      The Redskins head back to the Tuscaloosa supply line and add a late round cornerback. Smith is raw, but has plenty of potential. Will need to make his mark on special teams early in his career, but could be a starter in the slot within a year. Does not have blazing speed and likely will never transition beyond being in the slot. However, as a slot corner Smith should be able to cover tight ends and running backs with varying degrees of success. Good against the rushing offense. Solid tackling skills.


      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
      Ului Lapuaho, OT, BYU
      Keelan Doss, WR, California, Davis
      Daylon Mack, DT, Texas A&M
      Joe Dineen, ILB, Kansas
      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
