Burner's Burning Questions: 4/10/20: Latest Mock Draft


Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2020

Greetings from BBQ to everyone here at BGO. We hope your week has been a good one. Hello to everyone on social media. We’d love to have you as a member here and become part of the family. You are our honored guests, so sit back and enjoy.

The 2020 NFL draft is thirteen days away and it will be here before you know it. We’re getting closer in this process and we have a few ideas about what the team needs later this month. The process of team building never ends and BBQ is about to take a look at what could happen in the coming days.

Today, we bring you the latest mock of the 2020 offseason. The mocks will vary throughout the offseason and we will add/subtract players to/from the list as any relevant information becomes available. The Redskins currently have picks in rounds one, three, four, five, and seven. They also have a compensatory pick in the fourth round and an extra seventh round pick via a trade.

Will BBQ match or surpass the success that it had with the 2019 mocks? It will be difficult and very challenging, but it is a task that we embrace. With that kind of success, we truly believe it helps the members of BGO to focus on the players who are prospects that the Redskins are seeking. It feels good to provide everyone here with the kind of service you expect from BBQ. Ok, it is time to look at the prospects!

We will now feature two mocks this week/next week and the number of mocks will increase during the week of the draft.

Without any further delays, let’s take our latest look at the 2020 draft with this mock.

Upcoming Dates
- Days until the virus passes: Hopefully, very soon
- Days until the 2020 NFL Draft: 13
- Days until the Redskins season opener: 156

Pre-Draft: Trade
The Redskins trade Trent Williams for a fourth round selection.

Round One: Chase Young, Edge/DE, Ohio St. – 6’5, 265
Arguably the best overall player in the draft is there for the taking and the Redskins turn in the (virtual) card. Young is the next great pass rusher in a program that has produced some incredible talent at the edge position in recent years. The impact would be immediate. A quarterback’s nightmare. Excellent run defender. Perfectly tailored for a 4-3 defense.
Other Possible Picks:
Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
Isaiah Simmons, ILB, Clemson
Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa
Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Ohio St.
Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama

Round Two: Possible Prospects
The Redskins lack a second round selection, but here is a list of players who could be targeted if they can acquire a pick in this round.
Noah Igbinoghene, CB, Auburn
Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson
A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson
Justin Jefferson, WR, Louisiana St.
Damon Arnette, CB, Ohio St.
Lucas Niang, OT, Texas Christian
Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi St.

Round Three: Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame – 6’6”, 260
Cole Kmet has been rising up draft boards in recent months and even more so after a solid showing at the Combine. Ideal size for an NFL tight end. Excellent pass catcher who will produce additional yardage after a reception. His blocking skills need a bit of work. Kmet will need time to develop as an all-around player, but his football IQ is high and the potential is unlimited.
Other Possible Picks:
Isaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia
Jeremy Chinn, FS, Southern Illinois
Austin Jackson, OT, Southern California
Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton
Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn
Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue
Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah

Round Four: Saahdiq Charles, OT, Louisiana St. – 6’4”, 320
Saahdiq Charles has been busy this offseason. He has added twenty pounds of bulk and muscle to his frame. The biggest knock on Charles was his lack of strength, but his offseason regimen has scouts re-assessing that claim now. He is mobile and while some of his techniques need minor adjustments, this Cajun County Bayou Bengal is definitely ready for life at the next level. Could become a starter by mid-season, maybe sooner.
Other Possible Picks:
K.J. Hill, WR, Ohio St.
Matthew Peart, OT, Connecticut
Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame
Solomon Kindley, OG, Georgia
K'Von Wallace, SS/FS, Clemson
Ben Bartch, OT, St. John
Lamar Jackson, CB, Nebraska

Round Four: Michael Pittman, WR, Southern Cal – 6’4”, 220
The son of former NFL running back by the same name, Pittman is a physically strong receiver and imposes his will on defensive backs from the X position. Superb blocker at all levels. Not the fastest receiver, but tends to win contested passes and his size makes for the perfect “jump ball” situations. Solid red zone target. Ability to shine on special teams duties.

Round Four, Comp Pick: Antonio Gibson, RB/WR/KR, Memphis – 6’1”, 225
So anyway, is he a running back, wide receiver, or kick returner? Gibson was decent at each position a few years ago in community college. Two seasons ago, he saw little action in his first season as a Tiger. Then, 2019 happened. 38 receptions at 19 yards a catch with eight touchdowns. 33 carries at 11 yards per run and four touchdowns. 28 yards per return and one touchdown. How about his 4.39 40 speed? Explosive in all three phases – his versatility is scary good. Only one season of production hurts his stock, but Gibson would provide good value here.

Round Five: Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford – 6’7”, 255
Looking for another sizable tight end? Look no further than Colby Parkinson. He can play the Y, H, and F positions effectively. Fundamentally sound blocker – good mechanics and flexibility, but needs to finish those blocks a bit better. Positions himself well between the defender and the quarterback. Excellent red zone and “jump ball” target. Slow 40 time (4.77) will limit his draft stock. In certain passing schemes, he can line up in the slot and outside for slants and various hook patterns. This versatility will keep him from dropping into the late rounds.
Other Possible Picks:
Jacob Breeland, TE, Oregon
Collin Johnson, WR, Texas
Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty
Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri
Thad Moss, TE, LSU

Round Six: Possible Prospects
The Redskins lack a sixth round selection, but here is a list of players who could be targeted if they can acquire a pick in this round.
Mitchell Wilcox, TE, South Florida
Charlie Heck, OT, North Carolina
Tanner Muse, FS/ILB/Hybrid, Clemson
Terence Steele, OT, Texas Tech
Joe Reed, WR, Virginia
Cheyenne O'Grady, TE, Arkansas
Cole Van Lanen, OT, Wisconsin

Round Seven: Trey Adams, OT, Washington – 6’8”, 318
Adams could start eventually at either tackle position, but any team drafting him needs to consider the injury history. Drafting him for potential here provides good value. If he is considered for the left tackle position, Adams will need a year or two to adjust to the position at this level. A true mauler in the rushing scheme. Very good pass protector. Should add about ten to fifteen pounds of muscle to his frame. Again, he does come with an injury history and could be an IR candidate or a practice squad member in his first season.
Other Possible Picks:
Alex Taylor, OT, South Carolina St.
James Proche, WR, SMU
Myles Dorn, FS/SS, North Carolina
Jared Pinkney, TE, Vanderbilt
Reggie Floyd, FS, Virginia Tech
Devin Asiasi, TE, UCLA
Tyre Phillips, OT/OG, Mississippi St.

Round Seven: Steven Montez, QB, Colorado – 6’5”, 235
Montez is not the most polished quarterback in this year’s class, but he does have plenty of upside. With only two healthy quarterbacks on the roster, the Redskins add the late round prospect. Montez can make plays after leaving the pressure of a collapsed pocket. He relies a bit too much on his size and limited skillsets instead of trusting the play as it is designed. Better poise in the pocket needs to be learned. Strong arm. Definitely a project, but potentially can be a long term backup.

Undrafted Free Agent Prospects
This list will continue to evolve and change in the coming weeks as the Redskins meet with many players who will not be drafted.
Gage Cervenka, OG, Clemson
Rico Dowdle, RB, South Carolina
Mohamed Barry, ILB, Nebraska
Jeremiah Dinson, FS, Auburn
Shea Patterson, QB, Michigan
Naquan Jones, DT, Michigan St.
John Penisini, DT, Utah
Robert Hunt, OG, Louisiana-Lafayette
John Hightower, WR, Boise St.
Riley Neal, QB, Vanderbilt
Cameron Clark, OT, North Carolina-Charlotte
Keith Washington, CB, West Virginia
Charlie Taumoepeau, TE, Portland St.
Kelly Bryant, QB, Missouri
Jordan Glasgow, ILB/SS, Michigan
Lawrence Cager, WR, Georgia
Jabril Cox, ILB, North Dakota St.

Additional Notes
The fourth round comp pick comes from the deal that sent Jamison Crowder to the Jets. All other possible comp picks have been canceled out.

Free agency could continue to change some of the targets that we see in current mocks. For now, we can only speculate based on current team needs and pertinent information.

There is your latest mock of the 2020 offseason. We will have another mock on Monday. The volume of mocks will increase during the week of the draft.
