      Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2017 (Continual Updates)


      Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land.

      Today we bring you the latest mock as we get closer to the draft of 2017 and it features ten draft choices. The roster will be full of new prospects before you know it.

      As we get closer to the draft the frequency of mocks will increase. We are just over two weeks away. This week we will feature three mocks and next week will bring four. During the week of the draft, we will have a mock each day. Along the way we will feature mocks that have trades. Too, we will not be featuring mocks that have a trade involving Kirk Cousins – only if and when that actually happens.

      One special note: Wednesday will bring the only mock that features multiple trades.

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

      An extra note that we will continually post throughout the mocking process: These mocks may not necessarily be what BBQ wants or what the members at BGO may prefer. These mocks are designed to try and get into the mind of the Redskins brain trust and see what they will do. It’s not an easy task, but we’ll try to do our best.

      Without any further delays, let’s take a look at the latest mock for 2017.

      Team Needs:
      Free Safety
      Defensive Line
      Inside Linebacker
      Left Guard
      Running Back

      Round One: Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford
      The hype is there. You have seen the games. You have watched his YouTube videos. Is he just an internet sensation - another Lache Seastrunk - or can he thrive in a pass happy offense with occasional runs off tackle? So much intrigue comes with Christian McCaffrey. No doubt that he helped the Cardinal excel in the PAC 12 and nationally, but can he truly make it in the NFL? He is tougher than many may think, but he can’t be a constant between the tackles runner. To fully utilize his skillset, the Redskins could line him up in the backfield, at tight end, in the slot, and at wideout. As a multi-faceted talent, McCaffrey would be a very dangerous player against opposing defenses.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama
      O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama
      Reuben Foster, ILB, Alabama
      Malik McDowell, DE, Michigan St.
      Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio St.
      Haason Reddick, ILB/OLB, Temple
      Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan

      Round Two: Chris Wormley, DE/DT, Michigan
      The Redskins waste no time in repairing the defensive line and grab the All-Big Ten defensive lineman. The commitment to the line is real and genuine. Wormley is tenacious and very consistent – rarely makes mistakes. Extremely intelligent. He is a 3-Tech who will probably line up on the outside on most plays, but will kick to the inside at times. Very disruptive in the running game and gets occasional pressure on the quarterback. Probably needs to add about ten pounds of bulk and muscle. A dedicated team player.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Justin Evans, FS/SS, Texas A&M
      Kevin King, CB, Washington
      Budda Baker, FS, Washington
      Adoree Jackson, CB, Southern California
      Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma
      Raekwon McMillan, ILB, Ohio St.
      Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

      Round Three: Sidney Jones, CB, Washington
      Let’s get rid of the bad news first. Sidney Jones had a serious leg injury at the Huskies pro day and he will likely miss the 2017 season. The good news? The Redskins can possibly grab the best corner (arguably, before injury) in this draft right here. So what can the Redskins expect from the All PAC 12 standout in 2018? Tough competitor. Rarely allows separation from receivers. Consistently shuts down his side of the field. Superior speed. Elite agility. Should be a shutdown corner for a decade or more. Moderate to low risk, but very high return.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson
      Tanoh Kpassagnon, DE, Villanova
      Anthony Walker, ILB, Northwestern
      D'Onta Foreman, RB, Texas
      Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington
      Nate Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh
      Montravius Adams, DT/DE, Auburn

      Round Four: Isaac Asiata, G, Utah
      This very strong and powerfully built guard could be a target for the Redskins. Asiata has played tackle and center, but mostly out of necessity due to injuries along the Utes offensive line. The PAC 12 lineman has the prototypical size to play inside and left guard is his natural position. Excellent in the rushing offense, but will need some work in the pass protection schemes. This four year starter could crack the starting lineup by mid-season, maybe sooner.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Dalvin Tomlinson, DT/DE, Alabama
      Vincent Taylor, DE, Oklahoma St.
      Ryan Glasgow, DE/DT, Michigan
      Elijah Qualls, DT, Washington
      Jake Butt, TE, Michigan
      Brendan Langley, CB, Lamar
      Trey Hendrickson, OLB, Florida Atlantic

      Round Four: Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M
      With the trade that produced an extra fourth rounder, the Redskins use this flexibility to choose a wide receiver from the Aggies of the SEC. Steady, dependable, reliable. Not flashy, but can be a Pierre Garcon type of player who is able to provide steady production. Good route runner. Typically wins contested passes. Deceptively fast. Able to create separation much of the time. Not necessarily a red zone or home run threat, but can get you plenty of catches and yards in the open field.

      Round Five: Jarron Jones, DE/DT, Notre Dame
      Jones is a productive force at defensive tackle and end. He has superb athleticism for a man his size and figures to play more at the end, but could slide inside at times. Jones has the potential to dominate offensive linemen when he is in a groove and can live in the backfield. The ACC (Affiliated) standout uses his length to block passes and possesses a respectable pass rush. He can disappear at times during a game, but Jim Tomsula will likely provide good coaching and motivation.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas
      Charles Walker, DE/DT, Oklahoma
      Nico Siragusa, G, San Diego St.
      John Johnson, FS, Boston College
      Taylor Moton, G/OT, Western Michigan
      Eddie Vanderdoes, DT/DE, UCLA

      Round Six: Josh Tupou, DT, Colorado
      There are some humongous, towering, massive mountains in Colorado – Telluride, Pikes Peak, Mount Elbert, Crestone Peak, Josh Tupou. He’s big! He eats only one meal a day – it last about eight hours. Ok, enough of the lame one liners. Let’s get to the obvious – Very strong. Plays with a passion. Good at the point of attack. Handles double teams with ease. A major cog in the middle. Excels in the rushing defense. Provides a decent pass rush. Can play in both a 3-4 and a 4-3 defense. At 6-3 and 355, the PAC 12 standout can actually run a 5.3 forty. A true Buffalo indeed.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Delano Hill, SS/FS, Michigan
      Jordan Morgan, G, Kutztown
      Josh Augusta, DT, Missouri
      Jordan Evans, ILB, Oklahoma
      Jehu Chesson, WR, Michigan
      C.J. Beathard, QB, Iowa
      Richie Brown, OLB/ILB, Mississippi St.

      Round Six: Jay Guillermo, G/C, Clemson
      Jay Guillermo is versatile and can play either guard or center. That’s a good reason for the Redskins to take a flyer on him. Also, there is a need to have a backup at center. He would be drafted for depth purposes, but could actually be a starter within a year or two. The ACC lineman has the massive size that is favored in the NFL for inside positions on the offensive line. Good pass protector, but would need to work on the running game.

      Round Seven: David Jones, FS, Richmond
      David Jones is a really special athlete. He was selected the preseason defensive player in the CAA, but an early season injury derailed part of his senior season. He returned a few weeks later and was still able to capture second team All-American honors. Last summer, Jones was projected as a second or third rounder and considered to be one of the top five free safeties available in the 2017 draft. If the Redskins are looking for a major steal, Jones would fit that profile. Decent speed. A special teams standout. Goes 6-3, 215. Plays the middle of the field like a boss. Wins “jump” balls consistently. Excellent attitude. Diligent student of the game. Graduated early (December).
      Other Possible Targets:
      Pharaoh Brown, TE, Oregon
      Ben Boulware, ILB, Clemson
      Elijah Hood, RB, North Carolina
      James Quick, WR, Louisville
      Ben Braden, G, Michigan
      Hardy Nickerson, ILB, Illinois

      Round Seven: Tyrique Jarrett, DT, Pittsburgh
      The Redskins continue their commitment to stocking defensive linemen in 2017. Jarrett will need time to develop, but the All-ACC standout from Pitt would be a good addition late in the draft. Clogs up the middle very well. Would be solid in the running game, but does not bring much of a pass rush. Needs to develop a little more of a mean streak. . Good attitude and dedicated teammate. Could develop into a fine rotational player in the next year or two.
