4/25/20 - Final BBQ 2020 Mock

Burner's Burning Questions: 4/25/20 - Final BBQ 2020 Mock


Greetings from BBQ to everyone here at BGO. We hope you are having a good weekend. 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.

Rounds one through three of the 2020 NFL draft are complete! Rounds four through seven will commence in a few hours.

Today, we bring you the final 2020 mock. The mocks have varied throughout this offseason and now we try to put forth a final partial round prognostication for you. The Redskins currently have picks in rounds 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!

The chase of a dream for a special young man takes a new course. A franchise has renewed hope. A new front office and coaching staff has started a journey together. The fan base is excited once again. BBQ has enjoyed this offseason with everyone here. Thank you for making this voyage together a fun adventure. Let’s do it again next year!

Upcoming Dates
- Days until the virus passes: Hopefully, very soon

- Days until the Redskins season opener: 141

*****Official Selections*****

Here is the draft analysis from BBQ

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.

Round Three: Antonio Gibson, RB/WR/KR, Memphis – 6’0”, 228
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. Does Gibson remind Ron Rivera of Christian McCaffrey?

Without any further delays, let’s take a look at rounds four through seven.

A trade market never materializes with Trent Williams and the left tackle could now be returning to the Redskins.

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:
Collin Johnson, WR, Texas
Troy Pride, CB, Notre Dame
Tyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota
Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn
Ben Bartch, OT, St. John
Solomon Kindley, OG, Georgia
K'Von Wallace, SS/FS, Clemson

Round Four, Comp Pick: Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue – 6’5”, 245
Hopkins is an excellent receiver and can run any route you assign to him. He is superb in shorter and intermediate routes, but is generally not a deep threat. Decent hands, but does need to secure the ball quickly after a catch. Hopkins will likely need to add about ten pounds of muscle to his frame. Decent blocker on sweeps, screens and downfield passes, but not in short yardage situations. This Boilermaker will not be a starter for much of the season as he will need time to adjust to the defenses of the NFL, but Hopkins should see plenty of playing time. Upside is very good.

Round Five: Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia – 6’1”, 200
Bryce Hall was a very talented wide receiver in high school, but he was recruited as a defensive back. From day one, he was a star at Virginia and made a huge impact all four years. Ideal size for an outside corner. A devastating ankle injury ended his senior season. The lack of contact with teams due to the coronavirus has dropped his stock, but he should be ready this season. A solid second round talent. Very cerebral. Dedicated student of the game. A move to free safety is very possible and he could have an excellent career there.
Other Possible Picks:
Jacob Breeland, TE, Oregon
Julian Blackmon, SS/FS, Utah
K.J. Hill, WR, Ohio St.
Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford
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
Shaquille Quarterman, ILB, Miami
Charlie Heck, OT, North Carolina
Terence Steele, OT, Texas Tech
Joe Reed, WR, Virginia
Cheyenne O'Grady, TE, Arkansas

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.
Other Possible Picks:
Alex Taylor, OT, South Carolina St.
Myles Dorn, FS/SS, North Carolina
James Proche, WR, SMU
Jared Pinkney, TE, Vanderbilt
Reggie Floyd, FS, Virginia Tech
Steven Montez, QB, Colorado

Round Seven: Cameron Clark, OG/OT, North Carolina-Charlotte – 6’4”, 310
Cameron Clark is one of those hidden small school gems that has managed to gain only minimal notoriety as an NFL prospect. However, the Redskins seem to be very interested in his services. They had meetings with him at the East-West Shrine game and there was a virtual connection recently. Clark was considered by some to be a bit slender for an offensive linemen, but he has added thirty pounds of muscle in recent months. He dominated the line of scrimmage against Clemson early in the 2019 season. Some analysts believe Clark could be a guard at the next level, but don’t be surprised if he is a starting right tackle within a year or two.

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
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.

What a ride it has been. Thank you for all the kind words of support and encouragement this offseason. We have a while to go until the offseason becomes the inseason. See you as we go along.
