2013 Redskins 7 Round Mock Draft

Initial Redskins 7 Round Mock Draft

Round 2: Kenny Vaccaro FS Texas

Reason: Vaccaro is the definition of a versatile S. He can play as a nickel back, play the deep half and even play some in the box as a SS. What he does best is make plays and provide an extra spark to the team. If Brandon Merriweather can stick at SS, then Vaccaro can handle the FS position and put this team in a lot better position moving into 2013

Round 3: Brennan Williams OT UNC

Reason: Brennan is one of my favorite OT’s in the 2013 class. A big and athletic OT who gets to the second level easily. What Williams will bring to the O is what is missing now, and that’s a guy who can seal off the edge and provide a little extra time for RG3. Adding Williams to young OL players like LeRibeus and Gettis provides a bright future for the Redskins OL.

Round 4: Rod Sweeting CB GT

Reason: Washington needs a ton of help in the Secondary and this year Sweeting has elevated his game to being a top 100 pick. With good size and solid technique so far, Sweeting can come in early and provide a spark as a nickel CB. Sweeting projects as a starting caliber CB when its all said and done

Round 5: Brandon Williams NT Missouri Southern State

Reason: I was tipped off on Williams during the offseason but really didn’t pay much attention to it. As the season started the NT need began to show and I watched Williams finally. What I saw was a guy who hasn’t played against the best competition, but absolutely dominated who he played against. Possesses a strong anchor, and will surprise you with his pass rushing arsenal. A guy who has high character by all reports and can very well be a starting NT in the NFL

Round 5(From NE): Marquess Wilson WR Washington State

Reason: This is the typical risk pick that Mike makes in certain drafts. He did it in 2010 with Trent Williams, and did it in the past with guys like Maurice Clarett. Now they don’t always work out, but with a guy like Wilson who has beyond high upside, it would be tough to pass up on him with the potential to have a #1 WR. Wilson has suspect hands, but will always make the ridiculous catch. Character concerns with Wilson, but if he plays like he can, the Redskins will have a huge steal on their hands

Round 6:  Ray Ray Armstrong SS Faulkner College

Reason: Again another risky pick, but one that if it pays off could provide huge dividends for the Washington D. Armstrong is a SS in the NFL and is extremely raw as a player, but if a coach can refine his technique and get him to play the game smart he could be a pro bowl caliber player. Without playing this year teams wont have any film on him this year and the risk is certainly high with Armstrong and his off the field issues, but I think in the 2013 draft we see Mike make more risky picks

Round 7: Chris Thompson: RB Florida State

Reason: Okay I’ll stop with the risky picks with this one, but Thompson when healthy would be the perfect dynamic RB to pair with Alfred Morris. If you all thought our O was potent now adding a guy like Thompson in the backfield with RG3 would make it that much more dangerous. Thompson has the speed to take it to the house every play, but has had injury concerns with the back injury last year and now the ACL injury this year. With a coach on the proverbial hot seat next year, Mike will look to add dynamic players on both the O and D and Thompson certainly provides that.

Final look at the draft:

The 2013 mock here provides a solid mix of playmakers on O and D to help rebuild the Washington Redskins into a playoff caliber team. If this draft were to happen and the picks for the most part work out, Mike Shanahan might have just rebuilt a team from a basement level team into one that can compete for the playoffs every year. While there certainly on risk picks and we can’t assume all will work out, a guy like Wilson at WR could be the best pick of every one of them. Vaccaro at FS would provide stability and leadership and a versatility any coach would love.

Yeah. Baggage like Tanard Jackson- year long suspensions. No good to us of they can't see the field

I wouldn't say not drafting Tyrann would be catastrophic Craig. Intriguing player but comes with baggage and limited film. Toss up for me at this point, I see boom or total bust.

It'd be a wasted draft to take Honey badger till they make weed legal

If they don't make a move for the "Honey Badger", that will be a catastrophic MISTAKE!!!!!! ALthough the character issues are much publicized, HE STILL IS THE BEST PROSPECT IN THE WHOLE DRAFT!!!!!!!!!!

Chris Thompson would be a steal in the 6th/7th rd (assuming he fully recovers from ACL surgery).

I like both Mocks, but I think I like Nomaan's a little more. 1. i don't think Vacarro will be available to us in round 2 2. Chris Thompson I think will be undrafted.

I dont think Vaccaro will still be there at the redskins 2nd round pick. 2nd Jordan Poyer CB Oregon State 3rd T.J. McDonald FS Southern California 4th Brennan Williams OT North Carolina 5th Kevin Reddick ILB North Carolina 5th Tavarres King WR georgia 6th Sanders Commings CB Georgia 7th Quanterus Smith DE/OLB Western Kentucky Poyer can imediately start at CB giving the Redskins ability to move D Hall around in nickel and move him to safety in certain packages. Hall can be a ball hawk, while we provide solid outside coverage with Poyer and Wilson. T.J McDonald Will start at FS alongside SS Brandon Meriweather solidifying our secondary further. Brennan Williams may be exactly what we need at RT and we will see what Tom Compton will do next year. Reddick will provide us another talented ILB behind Fletcher, Riley, and Robinson. Fletch may soon retire so it would be good to have depth behind Riley and Robinson Tavvaris King is a playmaker and will be a nice addition with Hankerson, Garcon. Robinson, and it will give them a young WR core to develop and become really good with RG3 Sanders Commings is a big 6-1 CB who can cover and make plays. Good depth with Poyer, Wilson, Hall, Crawford and Minnifield Quanterus Smith is a passrushing menace. He had 12.5 sacks this past year before tearing an ACL. Let him heal for a year and you will have another awesome passrusher, Behind Orakpo, Kerrigan, Jackson In FA we resign our own Fred Davis and Rob Jackson ect. See if there are any reasonable additions we can make. No need to splash for anyone.
