      Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2015 (Continual Updates)

      Welcome to the 2015 offseason. We are taking a different approach for the new football year as we combine our mocks with the free agency period. We’ll have periodic updates as warranted and will use just this one entry instead of posting multiple blogs.

      Next week we will begin an in depth look at free agency. Today, we have our first mock and then it will be on something of a hiatus until early March. The mocks will slowly increase in number as we get closer to the draft.

      Feel free to offer your own ideas about the draft, free agency, team cuts, coaching changes, and anything else related to these subjects. Too, we’d like to see your mocks if you are so inclined.

      Without any further delays, let’s take a look at the latest developments and the first mock for 2015.

      Round One:
      The Redskins trade down with the Browns and receive Cleveland’s two first rounders.

      Round One: Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami
      Flowers had an excellent 2014 season as a pass protector and opened up major holes in the running game. He can be plugged in immediately on the right side.

      Round One: Eddie Goldman, DE/DT, Florida State
      The Redskins return to the state of Florida in the first round and select the coveted prospect. He is better suited for DE in the league, but can slide inside for certain packages. Fans are excited about adding the nickname of “Goldman Sacks”.

      Round Two: Gerod Holliman, FS, Louisville
      The Redskins select their third straight ACC player. Holliman immediately upgrades the free safety position as Ryan Clark is finished. The Louisville standout has ball hawking skills and should become an instant starter.

      Round Three:
      The Redskins make their second trade of the draft as they move down in the third round and add an extra fourth rounder in the process.

      Round Three: Durell Eskridge, SS, Syracuse
      Although it is only a coincidence, the team makes it four for four in ACC prospects. Eskridge played FS, but many scouts project him as a SS in the NFL. With Holliman and Eskridge, the Redskins will have size, speed, strength, and needed talent at the safety positions.

      Round Four: Devin Funchess, WR/TE, Michigan
      Funchess is more of a tight end who can make all of the catches, but can slide out to the receiver position when needed. Needs to add about ten to fifteen pounds of muscle for blocking assignments, but it shouldn’t be an issue.

      Round Four: Jordan Phillips, DT, Oklahoma
      The Big 12 lineman is a force inside. In a league that emphasizes offense, Phillips more than held his own against quality competition. He has great size and will be a great replacement for Stephen Bowen and (possibly) Barry Cofield.

      Round Five: Jarvis Harrison, G, Texas A&M
      Aggie linemen have been nothing short of spectacular in recent years and Harrison is another in a long line of great tackles and guards from the SEC power. He is massive and some scouts considered him to be the most talented in a group of standouts on A&M’s line.

      Round Six: Jake Smith, C, Louisville
      It’s highly unlikely for Smith to push for a starting role, but he would have good tutors in Bill Callahan and Kory Lichtensteiger. He could be inserted into the lineup in the next year or two.

      Round Seven: Nick Boyle, TE, Delaware
      Boyle can snag his share of receptions, but blocking is his forte. In fact, his superior blocking skillset is better than that of Logan Paulsen’s. Boyle could easily end the stay of the UCLA product.

      There is your first mock of the 2015 offseason and an updated prospect list. That is all for now, but the updates will certainly increase in volume and frequency. See you as we go along.

      Hail To The Redskins!
