Burner's Burning Questions

Burner’s Burning Questions – The Mock Draft, Part Two (Continual Updates)

Rate this Entry
Like last year, BBQ will do a series of mock drafts and will provide continual updates based on team needs, free agency additions/losses, and injuries. This is the second mock of the new season and it will be updated weekly. The frequency of mocks will increase as we get closer to the draft and it will be a daily feature in the final week. Feel free to add your own ideas and mocks as we go along.

Team needs are S, CB, RT, TE, and DL. Some of these issues could be settled (somewhat) in free agency, but we will address those potential signings in future mocks.

Round 2:
Trade – The Redskins have done very little in free agency and will rely on the draft to fill some holes. They choose to trade down to the latter stages of the second round and pick up a late third rounder.

Round 2:
Jonathan Cyprien – Free Safety, Florida International
Considered to be one of the top five free safeties in the draft, Cyprien has an all-around skillset and size to succeed.

Round 3:
Darius Slay – Cornerback, Mississippi St.
One of the stars at the combine actually has superior skills at the corner position. He could start sooner rather than later. Slay is an underrated cornerback prospect who had a solid senior campaign. He has phenomenal speed, good coverage skills, and better than average size.

Round 3:
T.J. McDonald – Safety, Southern California
The Redskins waste no time in upgrading a horrible secondary. McDonald has great size and athleticism.

Round 4:
Tyrann Mathieu – Cornerback, Louisiana St.
When you consider that the Redskins were willing to sign Aqib Talib, it should come as no surprise that they are willing to take a chance on a player who has special skills and a buyer beware tag.

Round 5:
Oday Aboushi – Offensive Tackle, Virginia
Aboushi is not a highly rated prospect, but he has the ability and speed to play quite well in a zone blocking scheme.

Round 5:
Trade – The Redskins use their extra fifth round pick to add late picks in the sixth and seventh rounds.

Round 6:
Stefphon Jefferson – Running Back, Nevada
We don’t need a running back? Ok, that’s fine, but Mike Shanahan has this uncanny habit of finding hidden gems at this position and Jefferson fits the bill. Many scouts are calling him this year’s Alfred Morris. Jefferson’s offense ran the pistol and he had a great year. Enough said.

Round 6:
Montori Hughes – Defensive Tackle, Tennessee-Martin
Williams comes from a small school, but could have a big impact at the next level. His stats are impressive and he had a very good showing at the Senior Bowl and Combine.

Round 7:
Joseph Fauria – Tight End, UCLA
Fauria had a great senior season and is an excellent red zone target with his height and athleticism. He needs to improve his blocking skills, but his size is an asset in the passing game.

Round 7:
Dalton Freeman – Center, Clemson
Freeman is a raw prospect, but could do a good job in the zone blocking scheme. He would need some time to learn the system and be the eventual replacement for Will Montgomery.

UDFAs:
1. Lucas Reed – TE, New Mexico
2. Elvis Fisher – OT, Missouri
3. Jeff Braun – OT, West Virginia
4. T.J. Barnes – DT, Georgia Tech
5. Steve Greer – ILB, Virginia
6. Trey Wilson – CB, Vanderbilt
7. Alex Dunnachie - P, Hawaii
8. Ray Ray Armstrong – S, Miami
9. James Wilson – G, Florida
10. Mark Jackson – G, Glenville St
11. Miguel Maysonet – RB, Stony Brook
12. Brandon Kaufman – WR, Eastern Washington
13. Rontez Miles – S, California (PA)
14. Tino Sunseri – QB, Pittsburgh
15. Demetrius McCray – CB, Appalachian St
16. Jeff Locke - P, UCLA
