    • Burner's Burning Questions: Thursday 4/20 Mock!

      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 are steadily increasing. The NFL draft arrives one week from today! This week we are featuring four mocks (another one tomorrow) and next week we will have mocks on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. On Thursday BBQ will bring you a list of first round possibilities. For Friday, we will do the same for rounds two and three. Saturday features players who could be targets in rounds four through seven. We will not be featuring mocks that have a trade involving Kirk Cousins – only if and when that actually happens.

      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: Reuben Foster, ILB, Alabama
      A physical specimen and a physical player. The All-SEC linebacker would be a force in the middle. Foster will need to improve by just a small amount in the passing game, but many scouts think he will adapt to the NFL offensive schemes quickly. The Crimson Tide standout has the speed to stay with tight ends and receivers coming over the middle. Zeroes in on running backs with laser like precision. Has a quick step on blitz packages and should get to the quarterback in an instant. An elite talent.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Forrest Lamp, OT/G, Western Kentucky
      Haason Reddick, OLB/ILB, Temple
      Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford
      O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama
      Reuben Foster, ILB, Alabama
      Malik McDowell, DE, Michigan St.
      Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio St.
      Derek Barnett, OLB/DE, Tennessee

      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 for the Wolverines.
      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: D'Onta Foreman, RB, Texas
      The Redskins have been looking for a consistent running game in recent years. Alfred Morris departed after slowing down during his last year in a Redskins uniform. Matt Jones wasn’t the answer. Rob Kelley is a good running back, but only in a relief role. Chris Thompson is a passing down back. D'Onta Foreman from the BIG 12’s Longhorns could be the answer. He’s a big, powerful, bruising, and intimidating back who has a great reputation for picking up major chunks of yardage every time he touches the ball. Incredibly quick. A true goal line threat. Consistently breaks tackles. Very effective on screen passes. A team first player.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson
      Tanoh Kpassagnon, DE, Villanova
      Anthony Walker, ILB, Northwestern
      Sidney Jones, CB, Washington
      Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington
      Nate Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh
      Montravius Adams, DT/DE, Auburn

      Round Four: Brendan Langley, CB, Lamar
      As one of the better athletes to come out of the Southland Conference this season, Langley is a tough defender with genuine football intelligence. Started his collegiate career at the University of Georgia and was moved to safety out of necessity (injuries to other players). Feeling that corner was still his natural position, he transferred to Lamar and had an impressive career with the Cardinals. Good size, solid speed, nose for the football, excellent defender.
      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
      Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M
      Trey Hendrickson, OLB, Florida Atlantic

      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.

      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
      Tyrique Jarrett, DT, Pittsburgh
      Ben Boulware, ILB, Clemson
      Elijah Hood, RB, North Carolina
      Dylan Donahue, OLB, West Georgia
      James Quick, WR, Louisville
      Ben Braden, G, Michigan
      Hardy Nickerson, ILB, Illinois

      Round Seven: Ricky Seals-Jones, WR, Texas A&M
      Ricky Seals-Jones was a five star recruit for the Aggies of the SEC, but has failed to live up to the hype. However, some pundits feel that his best days are still ahead of him as he does flash occasional bouts of greatness. At 6-5 and 240, he would be a definite target in the end zone for jump balls and various fade routes. He likely needs two years to get a feel of the NFL. He ceiling is very high, but can he reach it? The Redskins front office may think so. Could potentially play defense/special teams when the opposing team lines up for a field goal – jumping and raising those long arms would be interesting.
