Burner's Burning Questions: Today’s Mock 3/13/20


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: 5
- Days until the 2020 NFL Draft: 41
- Days until the Redskins season opener: 184

Pre Draft
The Redskins trade Trent Williams for a pair of third round selections. 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: 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.
Justin Jefferson, WR, Louisiana St.
Noah Igbinoghene, CB, Auburn
Lucas Niang, OT, Texas Christian
Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi St.
Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Pennsylvania St.

Round Three: Austin Jackson, OT, Southern California – 6’5”, 322
Austin Jackson is a bit raw, but he provides good value here. Good rushing blocker and above average pass blocking skills, but still needs some work. He would benefit by sitting in his first year or at least half a season. Jackson has added fifteen pounds of bulk and muscle to his frame in recent months. Has a good, positive attitude that will serve him well at the next level. Some scouts tend to think Jackson would do better as a right tackle.
Other Possible Picks:
Bradlee Anae, Edge/OLB, Utah
Jacob Eason, QB, Washington
Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah
Tyler Biadasz, OC, Wisconsin
Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia
Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue
Netane Muti, OG, Fresno 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.

Round Three: Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton – 6’5”, 250
As one of the “darlings” from fans early in the draft process, Adam Trautman is an intriguing prospect. He is not an early round possibility, but with extra picks, the Redskins make this selection. Hasn’t been playing tight end for long (originally a quarterback), but can fill the Y, H, and F roles effectively and as needed. 4.7 40 speed hurts him, so don’t expect Trautman to play X or Z. Lack of elite competition in college also hurts him, but he does have enormous potential.

Round Four: Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame – 6’4”, 230
A few years ago, Chase Claypool was playing football in British Columbia and received little to no attention. He started to post videos on social media and the rest is history. After a solid career with the Fighting Irish, Claypool increased his stock at the Combine. Good red zone target, but has trouble getting separation from corners in the open field.
Other Possible Picks:
Lloyd Cushenberry, OC, Louisiana St.
K.J. Hill, WR, Ohio St.
Thad Moss, TE, LSU
Michael Pittman, WR, Southern Cal
Logan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky
Tyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota
Solomon Kindley, OG, Georgia
Lamar Jackson, CB, Nebraska
Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford

Round Four, Comp Pick: Ben Bartch, OT, St. John – 6’6”, 310
Who? Ben Bartch. From where? St. John – in Minneapolis. He’s good and is highly underrated. Bartch will need some time to learn the nuances of being a left tackle in the NFL, but he has all of the intangibles to succeed. He wasn’t highly recruited out of high school (in Oregon) and started out as a tight end. Could be a legitimate starter at left tackle by mid season or sooner. Quick learner and is still growing into his frame. In fact, he will likely add another ten pounds or so of muscle to his frame.

Round Five: Reggie Floyd, FS, Virginia Tech – 6’0”, 220
Ideal size for a free safety. Superb in deep coverage with above average speed and decent ball hawking skills. He can cover wide areas of the field or cheat up in short passing downs and against the run. Can take a poor angle occasionally and needs to process such plays much better as they unfold.
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.

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: Trey Adams, OT, Washington – 6’8”, 318
Could challenge for a starting assignment 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 and this has affected his draft status.
Other Possible Picks:
Cameron Brown, ILB, Pennsylvania St.
Kyle Dugger, SS/FS, Lenoir-Rhyne
Bryce Perkins, QB, Virginia
Steven Montez, QB, Colorado
James Proche, WR, SMU
Alex Taylor, OT, South Carolina St.
Brian Lewerke, QB, Michigan St.
LaBryan Ray, DT, Alabama
Patrick Taylor, RB, Memphis

Round Seven: Naquan Jones, DT, Michigan St. – 6’4”, 325
His reps were somewhat limited at Michigan St. because there were several DTs ahead of him on the depth chart. When Jones did see the field, he was an absolute beast. Very strong. Plays with a mean streak. Ideal size for a DT. Very disruptive against the rushing offense. He is a bit slow and will need to work on conditioning at the next level.

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
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 March look much different than mocks in late April. 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.
