Re: Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions,

What the Redskins need more than anything else is more foundation players - A list performers who can change games and have to be accounted for by opposing coaches.

At #2 overall we have a rare chance to do that, optimistically believing that Rivera could get this team to around 7-9 even without major upgrades.

So this may be our one chance to draft in the top 5 and in this case quality is more valuable than quantity.

If Kyle Smith and Rivera are left alone we should be able to pick up solid contributors in the balance of rounds and free agency.
Only caveat to this is - we have be able to retain a top 5 pick and garner another high pick in the bargain. I believe there are game-changing players but I'm a lot more skeptical when it comes to the certainty that Young is one of them. We could trade down and luck into a ‘generational player' later in the round while garnering additional picks.

We have lost about 200 posts from the last month or so. We'll just resume where we left off a few days ago. Free agency update coming in a few minutes.

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.

A.J. Green, WR, Bengals

Chris Harris, CB, Broncos

Jack Conklin, OT, Titans

Yannick Ngakoue, Edge/DE, Jaguars

James Bradberry, CB, Panthers

Germain Ifedi, OT, Seahawks

Vic Beasley, OLB/DE, Falcons

Joe Thuney, OG, Patriots

Anthony Harris, FS, Vikings

Robby Anderson, WR, Jets

Bud Dupree, OLB/DE, Steelers


Off-Season Updates

The Redskins cap room currently stands somewhere between $51M and $55M for 2020. Releases and re-structures (if they occur) could continue to increase the cap room considerably.

Head coach Ron Rivera and Trent Williams are now talking and according to Ian Rapoport, the talks are positive. It’s a start.

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.

With Quinton Dunbar poised to not participate in OTAs unless he receives a new contract, it is too early to know what may happen with this new development.

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.

If we could swing it without stupid contracts then they should make a run at Tre Boston and James Bradberry. 2 positions of need and they have played together to know each others tendencies in coverage.

Justin Simmons is another interesting FS prospect from the Broncos as well

If it were me I go after the ex-Panthers Bradbury and Boston in free agency.

Dunbar May return on a new deal but do you want to pay him a lot more than another CB of similar ability if it comes to that in free agency?

The other thing is some of the CB depth we had on the field at the end of the season other than Moreau finally playing on the outside was a disaster.

Aaron Colvin got beaten like a drum and Moreland is small and needs to be protected with certain matchups.

Most of the depth players are #7 picks or street free agents. We need better talent for 2020 in the secondary.

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 two 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.

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 NFL Combine: 3
- Days until the opening of Free Agency: 26
- Days until the 2020 NFL Draft: 62
- Days until the Redskins season opener: 202


Pre Draft
The Redskins are able to convince Trent Williams to return and add two years to a new contract. Also, Quinton Dunbar is given a new three year contract. Donald Penn is also signed to a one year deal and will be the backup to Williams.

The Redskins trade a 2021 first rounder and a 2022 third rounder and acquire a first round selection for this draft.


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 One: Noah Igbinoghene, CB, Auburn
Noah Igbinoghene could have the most upside of any cornerback in this draft. He has been playing the position for only two years and the sky is the limit. Excellent in man and press coverage. Solid in zone coverage. Continued to rapidly improve against the many SEC receivers – certainly the best receivers in the nation each year. Superb athlete. Quick learner. Student of the game. Arrived at Auburn as a highly decorated receiver and now heads to the NFL as a prized corner.


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
Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
Justin Jefferson, WR, Louisiana St.
Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
Austin Jackson, OT, Southern California
Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi St.
Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Pennsylvania St.
Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi St.
Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah


Round Three: Jared Pinkney, TE, Vanderbilt – 6’4”, 260
Very reliable pass catcher over the middle and in tight spaces. Linebackers and strong safeties have difficulties against him. Doesn’t produce many yards after catch (YAC), but does move the chains as needed. Pinkney will need to refine his blocking skills.
Other Possible Picks:
Thad Moss, TE, LSU
Bradlee Anae, Edge/OLB, Utah
Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue
Tyler Biadasz, OC, Wisconsin
Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame
Josh Jones, OT, Houston
Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia
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.
Trey Adams, OT, Washington
Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
Logan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky
Tyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota
Lamar Jackson, CB, Nebraska
Akeem Davis-Gaither, ILB/OLB, Appalachian St.
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: 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 – unless he has an incredible Combine. 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.
Other Possible Picks:
Jacob Breeland, TE, Oregon
A.J. Dillon, RB, Boston College
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
Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame


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
Patrick Queen, ILB, Louisiana St.
K'Von Wallace, SS/FS, Clemson
Cole Van Lanen, OT, Wisconsin


Round Seven: Steven Montez, QB, Colorado – 6’5”, 235
Montez is not the most polished quarterback in this year’s class, but he does have plenty of upside. Can make plays after leaving the pressure of a collapsed pocket. Montez relies a bit too much on his size and limited skillsets instead of trusting the play as it is designed. Better poise in the pocket needs to be learned. Strong arm. Definitely a project, but potentially can be a long term backup.
Other Possible Picks:
Cameron Brown, ILB, Pennsylvania St.
Kyle Dugger, SS/FS, Lenoir-Rhyne
Bryce Perkins, QB, Virginia
James Proche, WR, SMU
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
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 February 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.

We will have a free agency update this coming Tuesday.

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 NFL Combine: Currently in Progress
- Days until the opening of Free Agency: 19
- Days until the 2020 NFL Draft: 55
- Days until the Redskins season opener: 195

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

The Redskins enter into a three way trade with the Dolphins and Lions. The Redskins acquire the Lions second round pick and a Dolphins fourth round selection. The Redskins will now pick third overall and Miami moves to second overall. The Lions pick up a number of draft selections from the Dolphins and will now pick fifth overall.

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.

Solid in zone coverage. Continued to rapidly improve against the many SEC receivers – certainly the best receivers in the nation each year. Superb athlete. Quick learner. Student of the game.

Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi St.
Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Pennsylvania St.
Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi St.
Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah

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
Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
Tyler Biadasz, OC, Wisconsin
Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame
Josh Jones, OT, Houston
Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia
Netane Muti, OG, Fresno 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 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.

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
Lamar Jackson, CB, Nebraska
Akeem Davis-Gaither, ILB/OLB, Appalachian St.
Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford

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 – unless he has an incredible Combine. 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, 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

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.


Tre Boston, FS, Panthers
A.J. Green, WR, Bengals
Chris Harris, CB, Broncos
James Bradberry, CB, Panthers
Austin Hooper, TE, Falcons
Byron Jones, CB, Cowboys
Jacob Hollister (RFA), TE, Seahawks
Kendall Fuller, CB, Chiefs
Shaq Lawson, DE, Bills
Blake Bortles, QB, Rams
Bashaud Breeland, CB, Chiefs
Devin Funchess, WR, Colts
Germain Ifedi, OT, Seahawks
Vic Beasley, OLB/DE, Falcons
Anthony Harris, FS, Vikings
Robby Anderson, WR, Jets

Off-Season Updates
The Redskins cap room currently stands somewhere between $61M and $66M 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.

With Quinton Dunbar poised to not participate in OTAs unless he receives a new contract, it is too early to know what may happen with this development.

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.

BBQ believes these are the names to watch in Redskins free agency: Tre Boston, James Bradberry, Austin Hooper, and Kendall Fuller. BBQ prefers all but Hooper – Hollister and/or Jarwin is preferred.

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.

I like Hollister over Hooper, too. I have to wonder how much of Hooper's production came from being on the same offense as Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones.

I'm just curious how much Hollister would cost us to sign him, he is restricted.

Bell and Peters are players the Redskins are not focused on in free agency - or so it seems. Castonzo is returning to the Colts.
