Mock Draft 3/7/20

Burner's Burning Questions: Mock Draft 3/7/20

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 later next month, but 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 in late April. The process of team building never ends and BBQ is about to take a look at what could happen later this spring.

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, enough of the self-aggrandizing. It is time to look at the prospects!

We will feature a mock each week and the number of mocks will increase as we get closer to the draft.

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

Upcoming Dates
- Days until the opening of Free Agency: 11
- Days until the 2020 NFL Draft: 47
- Days until the Redskins season opener: 190

Pre Draft
The Redskins trade Trent Williams for a second rounder. Donald Penn is also signed to a one year deal.

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 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.
A.J. Epenesa, Edge, Iowa

Round Two: Lucas Niang – 6’6, 315
Lucas Niang is a student of the game and prepares accordingly. However, the NFL is far different than the BIG 12 and he will need to use that time in the video room wisely. Superb in the rushing attack, but needs work with pass protection. Very good, solid tackle who could start from day one. Could reach All-Pro potential by his third season. Solid frame – could add about five pounds of muscle.
Other Possible Picks:
Justin Jefferson, WR, Louisiana St.
Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
Noah Igbinoghene, CB, Auburn
Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi St.
Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Pennsylvania St.

Round Three: Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue – 6’5”, 245
Hopkins is an excellent receiver and can run any route you assign to him. Decent hands, but does need to secure the ball quickly after a catch. Needs to add about ten pounds of muscle to his frame. Decent blocker on sweeps, screens and downfield passes, but not in short yardage situations. Upside is very good.
Other Possible Picks:
Bradlee Anae, Edge/OLB, Utah
Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah
Tyler Biadasz, OC, Wisconsin
Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame
Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia
Austin Jackson, OT, Southern California
Netane Muti, OG, Fresno St.

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.
Other Possible Picks:
Lloyd Cushenberry, OC, Louisiana St.
K.J. Hill, WR, Ohio St.
Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame
Thad Moss, TE, LSU
Logan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky
Tyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota
Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton
Lamar Jackson, CB, Nebraska
Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford

Round Four, Comp Pick: Solomon Kindley, OG, Georgia – 6’4”, 335
Highly underrated guard – the tackle next to him garners more attention (Andrew Thomas), but Kindley is much better than advertised. Superb athleticism in the ground attack and a better than average pass protector, but the latter could use some improvement. A reduction of his weight by ten pounds while maintaining muscle mass could help.

Round Five: Trey Adams, OT, Washington – 6’8”, 318
Could start immediately at the right tackle position. If he is considered for the left tackle position, Adams will need a year 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. He does come with an injury history.
Other Possible Picks:
Jacob Breeland, TE, Oregon
Justin Strnad, OLB, Wake Forest
Cheyenne O'Grady, TE, Arkansas
Tipa Galea'i, Edge, Utah
Charles Snowden, OLB/Edge, Virginia
Jacob Phillips, ILB, Louisiana St.
Reggie Floyd, FS, Virginia Tech

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.
Antonio Gibson, RB, Memphis
Mitchell Wilcox, TE, South Florida
Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty
A.J. Dillon, RB, Boston College
Patrick Queen, ILB, Louisiana St.
K'Von Wallace, SS/FS, Clemson
Cole Van Lanen, OT, Wisconsin

Round Seven: Bryce Perkins, QB, Virginia – 6’3”, 215
Bryce Perkins will probably never be a starter in the NFL, but his role could be a “Taysom Hill” situation at the next level. He has superb rushing skills. His athleticism would allow him to shine on special teams and occasionally line up at tight end, wide receiver, and at quarterback where he could sling the ball or pick up key yardage on designed rushes. Interesting note: Taysom Hill’s head coach at BYU was Bronco Mendenhall, the current Virginia head coach.
Other Possible Picks:
Cameron Brown, ILB, Pennsylvania St.
Kyle Dugger, SS/FS, Lenoir-Rhyne
Steven Montez, QB, Colorado
Naquan Jones, DT, Michigan St.
James Proche, WR, SMU
Brian Lewerke, QB, Michigan St.
LaBryan Ray, DT, Alabama
Patrick Taylor, RB, Memphis

Round Seven: Alex Taylor, OT, South Carolina St. – 6’81/2”, 308
Alex Taylor is a project that is worth a flyer in the seventh round. Has very good upside. Needs to add twenty-five pounds of muscle (or more) to his frame. He could be a candidate for the practice squad over the first couple of years and slowly work his way to a roster spot. He will need to work on all aspects of the tackle position.

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
Alex Taylor, OT, South Carolina St.
Jeremiah Dinson, FS, Auburn
Shea Patterson, QB, Michigan
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
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.

Mocks in early March look much different than mocks in the spring. Free agency could 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 next Friday. The mocks will continue to be posted this winter and early spring, then the volume of mocks will increase as we get closer to the draft.
