I can't read the article as it's a pay site. But I disagree with the premise he starts with (if I'm reading the direction of the article correctly). Sounds like he's advocating for the Redskins to 'take what they can get' now that it's gotten even uglier. I'm a vindictive SOB and there's no way they should settle for anything less than a 2nd rounder or a 3rd/4th combo. Screw Williams. He can either suit up and shut up, or lower his salary demands. Wildcard would be a player for player swap, but I am adamantly opposed to giving Williams away for a 4th or 5th just to 'move on'. We don't have to move on - the SOB is under contract.

And to piggy back on this...if he plays for us this year, he kinda has to give us his best or he'll never get another big payday. His best is likely the best we can get at LT this year when we draft Chase Young.

Having him and Scherff on that OL is the best case scenario for Haskins to have a better chance to succeed given the resources we have to add talent.

Wonder if f the skins are demanding a 2nd THIS year only? A 2nd or equivalent works for next year too and if offered they should sprint a hell yes to the fax machine

He's the Wuhan virus. He can't be allowed to come near the locker room.

Wait as long as possible. But sometime before the team reports to training camp, he has to go.

Possible Free Agent Targets
We are bringing back this feature for 2020 and BBQ has enlisted the help of several Redskins pundits as well as input from yours truly. We have three people who have contributed thus far – Ian Cummings of Riggo’s Rag, Nathan Britton of Riggo’s Rag, and Mark Tyler of Hogs Haven. Obviously, the Redskins simply can’t sign all of these players. This list is simply some players who could fill a need and possibly be available in March.


Blake Bortles, QB, Rams
Damarious Randall, FS, Browns
Cordy Glenn, OT, Bengals
Bashaud Breeland, CB, Chiefs
Demarcus Robinson, WR, Chiefs

Off-Season Updates
The Redskins cap room currently stands somewhere between $28M and $36M for 2020. Releases and re-structures (if they occur) could continue to increase the cap room considerably.

The Trent Williams saga is coming at us with all kinds of news and it is difficult to know what is true and untrue. Stay tuned.

We still know absolutely nothing about Alex Smith, but he wants to continue his playing career. Will he be ready for the 2020 season? Is his career over? Will he retire? Will he give the Redskins any cap relief? No one knows, but we’ll stay on top of it.

The injury to Reuben Foster is much more serious than previously known. It is unlikely he plays in 2020.

Bryce Love, Jordan Brailford, and Caleb Wilson are hoping to see action on the football field for the first time in their Redskins careers. Love could be in line for a lot of quality playing time. Brailford and Wilson have uphill climbs to make the final roster of fifty-three.

On the first page of this offseason thread and the second entry, we have the latest updates on coaching hires and football front office positions being filled. That entry will be updated as needed.

Personal Thoughts
Here are some players that must have a superb offseason if they hope to be on the roster this fall according to BBQ: CB Greg Stroman, FS/ST Troy Apke, OT Morgan Moses, TE Jeremy Sprinkle, CB Fabian Moreau, OT Geron Christian, WR Trey Quinn, and ILB Josh Harvey-Clemons.

With Ron Rivera as the coach, look for a more disciplined team and a locker room that has more accountability. It sounds like the “luxury resort” atmosphere is a thing of the past.

In Conclusion
The free agency updates will continue as new information is available.

Why Moreau ?

1) We're EXTREMELY low on CB's right now.
2) We have no 2nd round pick.
3) Moreau filled in arguably quite well last year.
4) Currently he's arguably one of our Top 2 Corners
5) He's a home grown talent

Why give up on him now ? Where has he erred ?

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 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, it is time to look at the prospects!

We will feature a mock each 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: 27
- Days until the Redskins season opener: 170

Pre-Draft: Trade
The Redskins trade Trent Williams for a third 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 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
Austin Jackson, OT, Southern California
Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton
Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn
Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor

Round Three: Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah – 6’0”, 193
Jaylon Johnson could’ve risen a bit with a solid pro day, but the league has ended everything prior to the draft. Slightly slow 40 speed hurts his stock. Johnson is an impressive corner with decent quickness to the ball and he has solid coverage skills. Good one on one ability and solid in zone coverages. Johnson’s jumping skills affords him the opportunity to eliminate “jump ball” situations, especially in the red zone. He focuses on the quarterbacks a bit too much at times and loses sight of the receiver. This also leads to being vulnerable to play action passes on occasion.

Round Four: Trade
The Redskins trade down in round four and they gain a fifth rounder and a sixth rounder.

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.
Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue
Michael Pittman, WR, Southern Cal
Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame – 6’4”, 230
K'Von Wallace, SS/FS, Clemson
Lamar Jackson, CB, Nebraska

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: 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.
Other Possible Picks:
Jacob Breeland, TE, Oregon
Collin Johnson, WR, Texas
Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford
Matthew Peart, OT, Connecticut
Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia
Thad Moss, TE, LSU

Round Five: Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri – 6’5”, 260
A year ago, many pundits thought Albert Okwuegbunam would enter the draft and he was immediately labeled as a second rounder – higher by a few of those pundits. Yes, “Chuks” was overrated, but the recent combine re-opened the eyes of those who were critical of him in 2019. He has blazing speed and good receiving skills, but needs work with blocking skillsets. Okwuegbunam needs to work on his routes, but his potential is sky high. He could bust as well.

Round Six: Tanner Muse, FS, Clemson – 6’2”, 230
Somewhat underrated. Muse can cover a lot of ground in the defensive secondary with his 4.4 40 speed, but lacks flexibility to be an impact free safety at the next level. He could move to inside linebacker or play a hybrid role (or both) – two areas where he could do very well. Muse has the ability to shine on special teams and that is where he would need to excel early in his career.
Mitchell Wilcox, TE, South Florida
Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty
A.J. Dillon, RB, Boston College
Joe Reed, WR, Virginia
Cheyenne O'Grady, TE, Arkansas
Cole Van Lanen, OT, Wisconsin

Round Seven: Myles Dorn, FS/SS, North Carolina – 6’2”, 205
Myles Dorn is a three year starter for the Tar Heels and that could serve him well at the next level. Prototypical size for a free safety, but a bit slender for a box player. He plays well closer to the line, but has varying degrees of success as a deep safety. Good speed, but can take poor angles further away from the line. Would need to make the team as a special teams player. Practice squad candidate.
Other Possible Picks:
James Proche, WR, SMU
Trey Adams, OT, Washington
Jared Pinkney, TE, Vanderbilt
Alex Taylor, OT, South Carolina St.
Devin Asiasi, TE, UCLA
Patrick Taylor, RB, Memphis

Round Seven: 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. Practice squad candidate, but could shine on special teams.

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
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 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 next Friday. The mocks will continue to be posted this spring, then the volume of mocks will increase during the week of the draft.

We could bring back Parham.
He was in camp last year.
We're desperate for TE's...and here's what he did in a shortened XFL season

305 yards and 4 touchdowns for the Dallas Renegades, which ranked third in the league and was 174 more yards than any other tight end.
Great size at 6’8’, 240 pounds

There's always a solid chance I'm not, but if I'm reading this correctly we're due around $100M in cap space in 2021. That would explain why we went with cheaper FA's THIS year for the most part. We can basically resign our guys that will be due and then go apeshit next offseason.

The new cap numbers that will come out next February or March is expected to increase the current cap by $40M to $45M. The Redskins should have around $140M of cap space next spring, perhaps as much as $145M.

Any money that they carry over from this year will apply to next season. That could push the Redskins cap to $150M at a minimum and perhaps as much as $165M. Some of this depends on if Brandon Scherff signs an extension in the coming months. Alex Smith will likely be released next year and that would be a cap savings of $13.6M. That could push the 2021 cap space well above $170M.

Under these scenarios, they can offer new contracts to Jon Allen, Daron Payne, Chase Roullier, and Matt Ioannidis. And with plenty of room to spare. Yes, they could add several new, very good free agents - maybe as many as six to eight solid players. The Redskins would also have plenty of room to take on a bloated contract from another team in exchange for their second rounder. Not saying that would happen, but it is possible.

So yes, the 2021 offseason is very interesting.

My first stab at a mock via first-pick.com.(no trades)
A guy that's an interesting prospect to me is Jeremy Chinn out of SIU.
A 6'3 220 lb FS that has 4.4 speed. Some refer to him as Derwin James-light.Wouldn't mind the Skins taking a chance on a guy like that. :)

Round 1 Pick 2: Chase Young, DE/OLB, Ohio State (A+)
Round 3 Pick 2: Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame (A+)
Round 4 Pick 2: Ezra Cleveland, OT, Boise State (A+)
Round 4 Pick 36 (COMP): Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame (A+)
Round 5 Pick 2: Jeremy Chinn, FS/SS, Southern Illinois (A+)
Round 7 Pick 2: Donell Stanley, OG, South Carolina (A+)
Round 7 Pick 15: Richard Moore, OLB, SMU (A+)

I'd love for us to draft Chinn, if only because I will be the one to determine his nickname.

I give you ... the Crimson Chinn
