    I just hope to God, if we do go after a QB in the draft, that it's someone we really think could step in and start either out of the gate in 2019, or the next season. I'm sick of drafting Nate Sudfeld types, guys that no team believes have true NFL starting potential. If you're going to draft a QB - it better be a guy you fully believe is long-term starter material. And if you can't get that guy, live with it, save the pick, and live with it. We don't need to reach and draft a QB who *might* be able to 'be developed'.

    I agree with this sentiment.

    It's just that I have zero faith that the current regime can find that QB and develop him.

    At least if the Redskins go with 'conventional wisdom' there's a chance it proves correct. It's not always correct. Griffin was an amazing college talent. But either our scouts failed to recognize he would never be above average pocket passer, be able to read defenses at a top level, and whose reliance on his legs would not be sustainable - or they recognized it but were overruled/shouted down by FO leadership. There's zero guarantee we don't repeat that kind of thing no matter who the pick is.

    But at least with a heavily-hyped QB that other teams also covet, there's a chance we hit on someone solid.

    You know what I'd prepare myself for?

    We don't select a QB in the 2019 draft. That would be just like Bruce Allen - because no one tells Bruce Allen what to do.

    If we don't select a QB and instead invest in OL,edge and some Offensive skill positions...I'd be OK with that...especially if they finally fixed LG and TE.

    If the aim is to get a young QB by 2020 and they spend this draft/offseason getting a line and running game to help him, at least it would appear that the Redskins have a plan/direction.

    Let's not forget, when it comes to drafting QB's, even the great and powerful Bobby Beathard drafted Ryan Leaf.

    It's a total crapshoot. Always has been.

    At least RGIII has managed to stay out of jail, even if not out of family court.

    Too soon?

    Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2019


    Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land and guests from social media – we hope you become a member here.

    The 2019 NFL draft is just under three months away, but it will be here before you know it. It’s a bit early in the process, but we do have a few ideas 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.

    Will BBQ match or surpass the success that it had with the 2018 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.

    We will no longer feature two mocks each week. There is no way Alex Smith will play in 2019 and his career is likely over.

    Without any further delays, let’s take our latest look at the 2019 draft with this mock.

    Round One: Trade
    The Redskins trade their first round selection to the Arizona Cardinals and receive a 2020 first round pick and a 2019 third round selection.

    Round Two: J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford
    Arcega-Whiteside could be the most accomplished receiver prospect in the 2019 draft. He has elite skills and is simply a master at all of the tree routes. Routinely makes incredible catches. A true highlight reel. Ability to separate from defenders on a regular basis. A powerful red zone target – fades and slants are a specialty. Long strides give him an advantage over safeties. Often gains good yardage after the catch.

    Other Possible Picks:
    D.K. Metcalf, WR, Mississippi
    Brett Rypien, QB, Boise St.
    Rashan Gary, DE/OLB, Michigan
    Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
    Jaquan Johnson, SS, Miami
    Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St.
    Will Grier, QB, West Virginia
    T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
    Nasir Adderly, FS/SS, Delaware
    DaMarkus Lodge, WR, Mississippi
    Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia

    Round Three: Trade
    The Redskins trade their third round selection from the Arizona Cardinals and their seventh round selection and receive a 2020 second round pick.

    Round Three: Chris Lindstrom, OG, Boston College
    Lindstrom is an all-around solid guard and could be an effective starter on the left side for a decade or more. Fundamentally sound. Solid lead blocker on counter plays and sweeps/jet sweeps. Exceptional in pass protection and the rushing offense. Solid blocker downfield on screens and short passes.

    Other Possible Picks:
    Caleb Wilson, TE, UCLA
    J.R. Reed, SS, Georgia
    Jalen Jelks, OLB, Oregon
    Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa St.
    Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple
    Ryan Finley, QB, North Carolina St.
    Juan Thornhill, SS, Virginia
    Connor McGovern, OC/OG, Penn St.
    David Sills, WR, West Virginia
    Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M
    Michael Deiter, OG, Wisconsin

    Round Three (Comp Pick): Yodny Cajuste, OT, West Virginia
    Taking two offensive linemen may seem like an unusual move, but the team could be in a semi-rebuilding mode and adding this kind of depth here makes sense. Cajuste probably needs a year to learn both tackle positions and could find his way into the starting lineup if injuries become a concern. Some pundits have him listed as a left tackle, but he would probably be a better right tackle in the NFL. He will need to adjust to the speed of pass rushers and improve how he handles blockers at the line of scrimmage. Excellent size for a tackle. He could get the starting nod at right tackle as soon as mid-season.

    Round Five: Foster Moreau, TE, LSU
    Foster Moreau would be a work in progress during his first year in the league, but he is 6’6”, 260. You can’t teach size and he has superb blocking skills. In the “Needs Work” category, the Cajun County Bayou Bengal will need to spend some time learning various routes and putting time into becoming a better receiver. He has flashed potential many times and had a solid week at the Senior Bowl.

    Other Possible Picks:
    Max Scharping, OT/OG, Northern Illinois
    Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern
    Iman Marshall, CB, Southern California
    Darrell Henderson, RB, Memphis
    Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia
    Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama St.
    Juwan Johnson, WR, Penn St.
    Trace McSorley, QB, Penn St.
    Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
    Lester Cotton, OG, Alabama

    Round Five (Comp Pick): Corbin Kaufusi, DE, Brigham Young
    Kaufusi is a bit raw, but has a ton of potential. He stands 6’9” and weighs in at 285. He can add bulk to his frame and be a true defensive end or play edge. He’s strong, powerful, deceptively quick, and would likely need a year to adjust to the NFL. Kaufusi has a 6’1” sister who can likely out-lift you with considerable ease – tallness and strength runs in the family. Matt Ioannidis was a fifth round selection. Can lightning strike twice?

    Round Six (Comp Pick): Olamide Zaccheaus, WR, Virginia
    How would you like a receiver who has running back skills and combines his talents to look like a Larry Centers and Chris Thompson type of player? Highly underrated. Lack of height will hurt him in the draft (5’8”, 200), but he has the speed and power to be a much more durable player than Thompson. He has been the leading receiver for Virginia over the years.

    Other Possible Picks:
    Joe Dineen, ILB, Kansas
    Chuma Edoga, OT, Southern Cal
    Mecole Harman, WR, Georgia
    Jonathan Ledbetter, DE, Georgia
    Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri
    Carl Granderson, OLB, Wyoming
    Kingsley Keke, DE/DT, Texas A&M
    Wes Hills, RB, Slippery Rock

    In Conclusion
    The extra sixth round comp pick that the Redskins had recently was surrendered when Terrelle Pryor was released late in the season by the Jets. The extra seventh rounder that the Redskins were projected to receive will not happen due to the NFL’s Rule of 32. As a result, the Redskins will now receive only three comp picks in the 2019 draft (3rd, 5th, 6th). When free agency opens, the changes to the roster will also have an effect on the draft. Mocks in late January look much different than mocks in the spring. For now, we can only speculate based on current team needs and performance to date.

    There is your latest mock today. 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.

    I like the idea of drafting depth on the lines. Maybe a TE, or safety, or CB. While acquiring more picks for the 2020 draft. Giving the next regime a better chance at drafting their QB.

    And, if it winds up that Gruden isn't Dead Coach Walking, then maybe we can trust him to select a QB in 2020.
    Doubt it. But maybe.

    His record for gaining the trust/respect/loyalty of whomever his QB has been, sucks. Along with most of his few head coaching abilities.

    ok! the new coaching staff arrives after next season is in the books mock draft!

    Pass on a 5'8" receiver. we already have a smallish slot receiver - unless you see Crowder gone.

    separate subject: reports are that BruDan stated Gruden will continue to call offensive plays (pun intended). What a great way to lose another up-coming/young OC and tube another season! BruDan! They're tops in my book!

    Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2019


    Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land and guests from social media – we hope you become a member here.

    Today, we bring you the second guest mock of the off-season and it comes from a familiar friend – Ian Cummings of Riggo’s Rag and twitter. He has provided draft analysis and Redskins analysis for several years now. Ian continues to hone his craft each year during the in-season and off-season as he continues on a path to a career in sports journalism. He is one of the best Redskins analysts out there and it is always an honor and pleasure to feature his work here.

    BBQ now resumes the guest mocks each week until early April and we will feature a Redskins fan/mock specialist. It became a popular feature last year and we are happy to bring it back to BGO.

    In this mock from Ian, he goes in depth and provides what the Redskins could do in the draft – all with detailed analysis. I enjoyed reading it earlier and I hope you enjoy it as well.

    Be sure to follow him on twitter at:
    https://twitter.com/ian_cummings_9

    Without any further delays, let’s take a look at Ian’s mock and free agency prognostication.

    Ian’s Seven Round Mock:

    Hey, guys! Thanks for having me on the site. I recently did a seven-round mock draft over at Riggo’s Rag ( https://riggosrag.com/2019/02/01/red...-embrace-tank/ ), so I’ve intentionally mixed it up a bit in this mock (although there are some similarities). If you want to see that mock, you can check it out on Riggo’s Rag. But for now, here’s my guest mock for BGO:

    Round 1 - Oklahoma OL Cody Ford
    There were a number of worthy options at this juncture, with Jachai Polite, Greedy Williams, D.K. Metcalf, T.J. Hockensen, and two safeties garnering consideration. But after seeing how much the Patriots’ offensive line opened up for them in the Super Bowl, and how imperative that unit was to the offense’s success as a whole, I decided to prioritize the Redskins’ void at left guard by drafting Oklahoma lineman Cody Ford. Ford was a tackle in college, but he should translate well to the interior in the pros. With plus athleticism, mobility, and power, and a hunger for dominance that’s never quenched, Ford’s addition would immediately elevate a Redskins offense that needs a facelift, and fast.

    Round 2 - Iowa State WR Hakeem Butler
    The size-speed combo had a heavy influence on the Redskins first pick in this mock, and that’s no different in Round 2. Washington needs a dynamic playmaker on offense, and Hakeem Butler is exactly that. In his final season with the Cyclones, Butler logged 1,318 yards and nine touchdowns on just 60 receptions, good for an average yards per reception of 22.0. At 6-foot-6, 225, Butler has the frame to be a dominant vertical receiver, but he also has the athleticism to develop other aspects of his game. Coupled with Paul Richardson’s speed (He’s costing $8 million a year so that experiment isn’t done yet), Butler could be a great get.

    Round 3 - Ole Miss TE Dawson Knox
    Call this a “looks the part” pick. You wouldn’t be wrong. Knox wasn’t particularly productive in his collegiate career. With three Day 1-2 caliber receivers competing for catches around him, Knox never came close to being the focal point of the Rebels offense. That said, he flashed a number of traits, such as athleticism and body control, that will bode well for him as a receiving tight end in the NFL. He’s already a decent blocker, which would be an upgrade for the Redskins. And in time, he could develop into a No. 1 tight end.

    Round 3 (Compensatory Pick) - Boston College S Will Harris
    Now to defense. With two starting slots pending at safety, I needed a safety who projected as a starter in the NFL, or at least that kind of upside. At the tail end of Round 3, many of the options were picked clean, and I found myself deciding between Iowa’s Amani Hooker and Boston College’s Will Harris. Hooker is undoubtedly talented; he comes from a pure football player factory in Iowa, and he has the smarts and the on-ball production to intrigue. I wanted a safety with a little more upside, however, and so I decided on Will Harris, a 6-foot-2 defensive back who’s a surprisingly fluid mover for his size. He impressed in the Senior Bowl, and if his on-field traits are confirmed by a good combine performance, he’ll be hard to pass up.

    Round 5 - North Dakota State QB Easton Stick
    I picked Easton Stick in Round 5 in my Riggo’s Rag mock draft as well. Why? Because he’s really the only developmental quarterback prospect I like this late. Brett Rypien is the most attractive option outside of the first two rounds, but he didn’t last this far. Still, Stick has his perks that make him stand out among the remaining prospects. He’s mobile, which is an automatic plus, and almost a necessity, in Jay Gruden’s West Coast scheme. He has a somewhat elastic arm, and he plays with a competitive fire. That said, the intangible aspects of Stick’s game need major refinement. But that’s why he goes here. He’s a project and some young insurance for a Redskins quarterback room that desperately needs it.

    Round 5 (Compensatory Pick) - James Madison CB Jimmy Moreland
    I love some of the mid-round cornerback prospects in this draft, and Jimmy Moreland is no exception. Feisty and flash-like on the field, Moreland transcends his size (5-foot-11, 175) to make an impact on every play. With ball exceptional ball skills, he logged 18 interceptions and 63 pass deflections over the course of his career at James Madison. His size may cause him to drop in the draft, but he has the traits to be an eventual starter, if he can add weight. With Josh Norman only getting older and less cost-effective, this is the kind of investment the Redskins need to make.

    Round 6 - Notre Dame LB Drue Tranquill
    If you ask me, the Redskins need at inside linebacker isn’t really a need at all. Reuben Foster should factor into the starting equation as long as his situation checks out, and Zach Brown, while he wasn’t great last year, still provided starting-quality play. And if the team decides to part ways with both Brown and Mason Foster, Shaun Dion Hamilton not only showed promise, but stayed healthy, which was the biggest concern surrounding his game when he was drafted. The Redskins 2019 starters could very well be on the roster, but depth can still be added. That’s where Notre Dame’s Drue Tranquill comes in. He doesn’t stand out from a traits perspective, and he’ll be 24 in his rookie season. But Tranquill brings energy and awareness, and at the very least, he can be an effective spot-starter or coverage linebacker.

    Round 7 - Northern Illinois EDGE Sutton Smith
    I really wanted to take an offensive tackle at some point in this draft, but it just wasn’t in the cards. By the time I got to this pick, most of the options were gone. So instead, I went with Sutton Smith, the Northern Illinois edge rusher who logged 56.5 tackles for loss and 29.0 sacks in two seasons as a full-time starter. At 6-foot-1, 237 pounds, Smith is drastically undersized as an edge, but he has a tireless motor and has good quickness. The Redskins could play around with Sutton a bit, and use him as a versatile reserve chess piece at linebacker. At worst, he’s a solid special teams contributor.

    BBQ’s Thoughts:
    Thanks to Ian for a highly detailed examination of what the Redskins could do in the draft. He put a lot of thought and work to it. Feel free to comment on any aspect of what he has written here.

    BBQ will have a mock draft tomorrow.

    Again, be sure to follow Ian on twitter at:

    Ian - thanks for the awesome mock - we already appreciate a different perspective!

    Love drafting the big ugly early. That strategy has been working for us and I hope we continue to commit top resources to the trenches!

    But I’m on record as being against drafting a ‘project’ QB and here’s why. The Redskins have a less than stellar record when it comes to assessing QB talent in the modern era. We all know the names so I won’t catalog them. Honestly, the only ‘hit’ we’ve had on recent years is Kirk Cousins. We bungled it with him and couldn’t retain him but he was a steal in the 4th round.

    I’m less than confident we can strike gold drafting a QB based on conventional wisdom with a 1st round pick. But my belief we can find a star/franchise guy beyond the first couple of rounds is non-existent. And I’m not a believer in drafting QBs late unless you really believe you’re seeing things no one else sees and you believe the guy is an NFL starter. In other words, you don’t ever draft a backup QB knowingly. We don’t need Nate Sudfeld or Colt McCoy.

    That general belief of mine is compounded by the fact that finding a hidden gem requires two things. An incredibly savvy scouting team that the top decision makers WILL LISTEN TO and a lot of luck. I don’t believe either of those things are our strong suit.

    Take your chances using a first or second round pick on a guy who is as ‘can’t miss’ as you can find, and select a QB you truly believe is your future starter, or don’t pick one at all.

    Just my 2 cents

    I’d also prefer a true road grader TE. Pass catching is secondary for me. We finally need a TE who strikes fear into defenders hearts when they see him rolling at them. Not sure your guy qualifies but I’ll be looking more closely at him based on your mock. Thanks again for your insight!

    Thanks to Ian for the mock. And to BB for bringing it to us.

    I also like going for the big ugly's. Mainly because I think it's always best to keep the supply line filled with starters and future starters. But also because, if my estimations are right, we'll see the last of Gruden this season, and strong lines will help any new staff coming in.

    Like Boone, I also want to see a TE that can block better than me. Personally, I'd like to see us go back to having a legit FB leading our RB's to the end zone, too.
    Gruden's only chance to keep his job, IMHO, is to go full on Brian Billick. Another "so called" offensive genius, who bowed to a strong running game, and a stout defense, to win a championship.

    With contract discussions with AP in progress, this would be most wise for the upcoming season.

    Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2019


    Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land and guests from social media – we hope you become a member here.

    The 2019 NFL draft is now two and a half months away, but it will be here before you know it. It’s a bit early in the process, but we do 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.

    Will BBQ match or surpass the success that it had with the 2018 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.

    We will no longer feature two mocks each week. There is no way Alex Smith will play in 2019 and his career is likely over.

    Upcoming Dates:
    - Days until the NFL Combine: 18
    - Days until the opening of Free Agency: 34
    - Days until the NFL Draft: 76
    - Days until the 2019 Regular Season Opener: 209

    Without any further delays, let’s take our latest look at the 2019 draft with this mock.

    Round One: Clelin Ferrell, OLB, Clemson
    Grabbing one of the best players from a national champion has been a strategy for the Redskins in recent years, but this time the player comes from Clemson. Clelin Ferrell is an elite talent at edge. He has elite pass rushing skills. He has an elite motor that never stops. His strength is elite. Ferrell will need to adjust from having is hand in the dirt on the line of scrimmage to a stand up 3-4 linebacker, but should make the transition smoothly.

    Other Possible Picks:
    Cody Ford, G/OT, Oklahoma
    T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
    A.J. Brown, WR, Mississippi
    Montez Sweat, Edge/OLB, Mississippi St.
    Jachai Polite, Edge/OLB, Florida
    Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
    Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

    Round Two: Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
    As an established offensive weapon, Deebo Samuel started to catch the attention of scouts by his second year for the Gamecocks. Excellent route running skills. Superior moves against the elite cornerbacks of the SEC cemented his legacy at South Carolina in 2018. Samuel has solid speed to go with his elusiveness – he can gain major chunks of yardage after a catch. If he has a step on any defender, Samuel is a sure bet to reach the end zone.

    Other Possible Picks:
    D.K. Metcalf, WR, Mississippi
    J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford
    Jaquan Johnson, SS, Miami
    Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St.
    Will Grier, QB, West Virginia
    Nasir Adderly, FS/SS, Delaware
    DaMarkus Lodge, WR, Mississippi
    Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia

    Round Three: Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M
    Sternberger could start from day one, but probably needs to add ten to fifteen pounds of bulk and muscle to his long frame. He is an absolute monster after the catch and can drag a defender (sometimes two defenders) twenty or thirty yards with ease. He has a solid receiving skillset and is not afraid to go over the middle. Fantastic red zone target. Routinely goes up high for jump ball catches. Typically wins any contested catch. Very good blocker, but still some room for improvement.

    Other Possible Picks:
    Caleb Wilson, TE, UCLA
    J.R. Reed, SS, Georgia
    Brett Rypien, QB, Boise St.
    Jalen Jelks, OLB, Oregon
    Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa St.
    Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple
    Ryan Finley, QB, North Carolina St.
    Juan Thornhill, SS, Virginia
    Yodny Cajuste, OT, West Virginia
    Chris Lindstrom, OG, Boston College
    Connor McGovern, OC/OG, Penn St.
    David Sills, WR, West Virginia
    Michael Deiter, OG, Wisconsin

    Round Three (Comp Pick): Brett Rypien, QB, Boise St.
    Rypien is probably the most pro-ready player in this draft, but there is still room to grow and learn. Quick release makes him difficult to sack. Solid mechanics. Decent accuracy. Superb pocket passer and solid pocket awareness. Able to go through his progressions quickly, effectively, and cleanly. Good mobility and can extend plays as needed. Hits receivers in stride, thus allowing for extra yards after the catch. Needs to learn how to deal with pressure and should add about ten to fifteen pounds of bulk to his frame.

    Round Five: Max Scharping, OT/OG, Northern Illinois
    Max Scharping is a good tackle, but he has the skills and traits that will likely move him to the inside at the next level. A bit too stiff to play tackle in the NFL, but he would be much better inside. Good in pass protection. Good in the rushing offense. Would need a year in the league in order to adjust to the next level. Could be a reliable left guard after learning the position. Excellent size. Smart player and quick learner – with such traits, he could be a starter by mid-season.

    Other Possible Picks:
    Foster Moreau, TE, LSU
    Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern
    Iman Marshall, CB, Southern California
    Darrell Henderson, RB, Memphis
    Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia
    Carl Granderson, OLB, Wyoming
    Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama St.
    Juwan Johnson, WR, Penn St.
    Corbin Kaufusi, DE, Brigham Young
    Trace McSorley, QB, Penn St.
    Lester Cotton, OG, Alabama

    Round Five (Comp Pick): Devine Ozigbo, RB, Nebraska
    Ozigbo is certainly not the most accomplished running back in the 2019 draft, but he has skills that definitely will serve him well at the next level. At 6’0”, 235, this Cornhusker is strong and powerful. He will not run away from defenders and is not a downhill threat, but Ozigbo will run through those same defenders and can gain five to eight yards with ease. Good receiver on screens and short passes. Typically takes three or four tacklers to bring him down.

    Round Six (Comp Pick): Olamide Zaccheaus, WR, Virginia
    How would you like a receiver who has running back skills and combines his talents to look like a Larry Centers and Chris Thompson type of player? Highly underrated. Lack of height will hurt him in the draft (5’8”, 200), but he has the speed and power to be a much more durable player than Thompson. He has been the leading receiver for Virginia over the years.

    Other Possible Picks:
    Chuma Edoga, OT, Southern Cal
    Mecole Harman, WR, Georgia
    Diontae Johnson, WR, Toledo
    Jonathan Ledbetter, DE, Georgia
    Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri
    Kingsley Keke, DE/DT, Texas A&M
    Wes Hills, RB, Slippery Rock

    Round Seven: Joe Dineen, ILB, Kansas
    Joe Dineen is a tackling machine and is superb in both the rushing defense and pass coverage. However, he will need to make his marks on special teams early in his career. He is deceptively quick and rarely makes mistakes. If Dineen can find his niche as a special teamer and as a quality backup as a linebacker, then his career in the NFL could be a lengthy stay.

    Other Possible Picks:
    Jaylen Smith, WR, Louisville
    Ului Lapuaho, OT, BYU
    Diontae Johnson, WR, Toledo
    Olive Sagapolu, DT, Wisconsin
    Nate Herbig, OG, Stanford
    Ulysees Gilbert, ILB, Akron
    Keelan Doss, WR, California
    Daylon Mack, DT, Texas A&M
    Eric Dungey, QB, Syracuse
    Kendall Blanton, TE, Missouri

    In Conclusion
    The extra sixth round comp pick that the Redskins had recently was surrendered when Terrelle Pryor was released late in the season by the Jets. The extra seventh rounder that the Redskins were projected to receive will not happen due to the NFL’s Rule of 32. As a result, the Redskins will now receive only three comp picks in the 2019 draft (3rd, 5th, 6th). When free agency opens, the changes to the roster will also have an effect on the draft. Mocks in late January look much different than mocks in the spring. For now, we can only speculate based on current team needs and performance to date.

    There is your latest mock today. 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.

    Great mocks Ian, & BB.

    If Cody Ford is sitting there at 15 I'd be shaken to the core shocked.

    I keep seeing Hockenson projected 2nd but you are consistently keeping him in the options for 1sr round pick? You think he's a 1st rounder?

    If so, I'd be very tempted to take him. Look how valuable Gronkowski has been to the Patriots. Word is Hockenson plays every down like Gronk, although Gronk is not every single down anymore...just most snaps in a game when healthy. Still, a bog boy like that helps in the run, and is a nightmare for defenses in pass pro.
