    • Burner's Burning Questions: Monday 4/24 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.

      The NFL draft arrives in just three days! This week we are featuring four mocks – today, Tuesday, and two on 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: Haason Reddick, OLB/ILB, Temple
      With Junior Galette being another possible injury concern along with character concerns and the sophomore slump of Preston Smith, it could make sense to add an edge rusher. Enter Haason Reddick of the AAC. The Owl could excel on the edge in certain packages, but his size means he would likely move to the inside at the next level. Good speed – can get to the quarterback quickly. Rapidly closes on running backs hitting the open field. Covers tight ends and slot receivers effectively. Would likely become a fan favorite quickly. Could be a better prospect at OLB than Reuben Foster – a player that now has a failed drug test and character concerns.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Forrest Lamp, OT/G, Western Kentucky
      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: Adoree Jackson, CB, Southern California
      The quality of wide receivers in the NFC-East has grown significantly over the last few seasons and it would be a good idea to take a quality corner here. The PAC 12 dynamo is an electrifying player and is arguably one of the best corners in the draft. He also had a fantastic career as a kick/punt returner for the Trojans. Lightning fast – can jump routes with ease. Can also play wide receiver on occasion and effectively so. Does has issues with taller receivers and can get beat on jump balls. Passionate player. Former teammate of Su’a Cravens.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Justin Evans, FS/SS, Texas A&M
      Chris Wormley, DE/DT, Michigan
      Kevin King, CB, Washington
      Budda Baker, FS, Washington
      Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma
      Raekwon McMillan, ILB, Ohio St.
      Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

      Round Three: Tanoh Kpassagnon, DE, Villanova
      The Redskins continue their offseason transformation of the defensive line as they are looking to draft defensive linemen in 2017. While TV announcers could have a fun time trying to pronounce his name, Kpassagnon, a CAA standout, has impressive size (6-7, 280) to go along with impressive skills. In 2016 alone he had twenty-one tackles for a loss and eleven sacks for the Wildcats. Swats passes down with considerable ease. Deceptively quick. Could be a surprise starter his first season, but at the very least he figures to be in the defensive rotation early on and quite often in 2017.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson
      D'Onta Foreman, RB, Texas
      Anthony Walker, ILB, Northwestern
      Sidney Jones, CB, Washington
      Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington
      Nate Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh
      Montravius Adams, DT/DE, Auburn

      Round Four: Jake Butt, TE, Michigan
      The Redskins can’t ignore six concussions to Jordan Reed and he could be one hit away from a career ending injury. Vernon Davis is not a starter and Niles Paul is more of a special teams ace. Enter Jake Butt of the Big Ten’s Wolverines. He was originally rated as one of the draft’s best tight ends, but an unfortunate injury in their bowl game likely means that he won’t be selected early on. He also may not be ready at the very start of the season. However, Butt could still have a solid rookie season. Dependable pass catcher. Great red zone target. Excellent football smarts. Good blocker.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Vincent Taylor, DE, Oklahoma St.
      Isaac Asiata, G, Utah
      Ryan Glasgow, DE/DT, Michigan
      Brendan Langley, CB, Lamar
      Elijah Qualls, DT, Washington
      Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M
      Trey Hendrickson, OLB, Florida Atlantic

      Round Four: Dalvin Tomlinson, DT/DE, Alabama
      The Redskins continue to rebuild their defensive line and look to the Crimson Tide – that perennial powerhouse of the SEC. They produce a lot of talent and Dalvin Tomlinson is another one of their great prospects. His specialty is run stuffing, but he became a better pass rusher later in the 2016 season. He won’t get a lot of sacks, but will bat plenty of passes down. Solid player who gladly puts team goals ahead of his own. Very intelligent. Needs to develop a little bit more of a mean streak attitude. His upside potential is possibly unlimited.

      Round Five: Taylor Moton, G/OT, Western Michigan
      The Redskins need a long term solution at left guard and Taylor Moton could fill that need. The All MAC lineman has the versatility to play tackle, but his size and potential is likely on the inside. The Broncos started him on the right side, but he has the ability to shift to left guard. Excellent in pass protection. Solid in opening holes for the running back. Goes 6-5 and a powerful 330 lbs. Could start by mid-season or possibly by the opening game of 2017.
      Other Possible Targets:
      Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas
      Charles Walker, DE/DT, Oklahoma
      Nico Siragusa, G, San Diego St.
      Jarron Jones, DE/DT, Notre Dame
      John Johnson, FS, Boston College
      DeDe Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma
      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
      Jamari Staples, WR, Louisville
      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
      Ricky Seals-Jones, WR, Texas A&M
      Elijah Hood, RB, North Carolina
      Dylan Donahue, OLB, West Georgia
      James Quick, WR, Louisville
      Ben Braden, G, Michigan
      Hardy Nickerson, ILB, Illinois

      Round Seven: Jehu Chesson, WR, Michigan
      The Redskins add a very talented and highly underrated receiver from the Big Ten. The system Jehu Chesson was in for the Wolverines limited his receptions, but his overall talent probably yields many more catches in a friendlier offense. He will likely need a year to learn the nuances of a Jay Gruden offense, but could contribute some meaningful minutes in the latter part of his rookie season. However, his overall talent could have him on the field a bit sooner. Will need to show some special teams skills as well.

      Undrafted Free Agent Prospects:
      Dayon Pratt, OLB, East Carolina
      Patrick Ricard, DE/DT, Maine
      Erik Austell, G, Charleston Southern
      Connor Bozick, OT, Delaware
      Adam Griffith, K, Alabama
      Chad Williams, WR, Grambling

      Derrick Griffin, TE, Texas Southern
      Will Holden, OT, Vanderbilt
      Vernon Sainvil, OT/G, St. Francis Xavier (Canada)

      Patrick Towles, QB, Boston College
