Redskins seven-round mock draft 1.0

Apr 4, 2016, 10:52 AM EDT

Let’s dive right in to my first Redskins mock draft of the season, run on the mock draft simulator at Fanspeak.

Round 1—DL A’Shawn Robinson, Alabama

My two favorite players in this draft, DT Andrew Billings of Baylor and WR Laquon Treadwell of Ole Miss, both were gone. It came down to a choice between Robinson and Jarran Reed, his line mate at Alabama. I went with Robinson because I think he’s more versatile. Reed is more of a straight run stuffer and although he’s a good one Robinson has more range and should get to the quarterback more.

Round 2—WR Michael Thomas, Ohio State

I thought about doubling up on the defensive line with either Vernon Butler of Louisiana Tech or Chris Jones of Mississippi State but I decided I liked both Thomas and WR Josh Doctson of TCU better. I went with Thomas because he a bit taller and I like players who have been in big games. But I would have no issue with Doctson at this point in the draft (although I doubt that he’ll be available at this point in reality).

Round 3—C Nick Martin, Notre Dame

If you read me here regularly, you probably know that I’m not with those who think that center is a four-alarm emergency need that must be addressed early in the draft. In fact, I think this spot in the draft is too early for a center. But this is a case of taking the best available player, assuming that Martin has fully recovered from his 2013 knee injury. Martin has to potential to be a solid starter for the next 8-10 years.

Round 4—Alex Collins, RB, Arkansas

Before taking Martin in the third, I pondered taking a running back there. It was between Collins and Jordan Howard of Indiana. Collins seems to be tougher and more durable and he still available so he was the pick. I thought about RB C.J. Prosise of Notre Dame here, too. I like the versatility the former slot receiver brings to the position. I’ll likely find a way to get him in a future mock.

Round 5—CB Maurice Canady, Virginia

I wasn’t really enthusiastic about any of the choices here so I went with Canady, a 6-1 corner who has decent speed but needs a lot of polish.

Round 6—QB Cody Kessler, USC

It was time to get a developmental quarterback and my favorite, Kevin Hogan of Stanford, had just come off of the board. Kessler was the choice over Jeff Driskel of Louisiana Tech and Nate Sudfeld of Indiana. I see Kessler as the best suited to come in and keep things afloat should disaster strike at the quarterback position. He completed 71 percent of his passes from the pocket and he threw 67 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions over his last two years with the Trojans.

Round 7-A—ILB Blake Martinez, Stanford

I’m looking for special teams help at this point in the draft. Martinez is bigger inside backer who hits hard but has limited quickness. Perhaps he will struggle in coverage as an inside backer but I could see him charging downfield in kick coverage.

Round 7-B—S Derrick Kindred, TCU

At 5-10, not as big as you’d like but he broke his collarbone three days before the season started and he played through it. That kind of toughness could make up for a lack of size. Kindred is not a solution at safety, at least not right away, but he could provide depth and special teams help right away.

  1. abanig - Apr 4, 2016 at 11:18 AM

    I’d take a FS like Keanu Neal, Karl Joseph in round 2 or in round 3 take Tyvis Powell or TJ Green.

    WR is a mid to late round selection in my mind. Next year WR will be what we’ll want to take in round 1 or 2 and next years WR class looks better too me.

    • Bryan - Apr 4, 2016 at 11:50 AM

      I understand your thinking about wr next year but many time Wrs take a year or two in order to meet potential unless you grab a stud early in draft. Rich is thinking bout next year when both garçon and Jackson may not be here and Thomas would have year under his belt. I wouldn’t mind Thomas but also wouldn’t mind another young dline men in 2nd also.

      • abanig - Apr 4, 2016 at 2:52 PM

        Well that’s fine. Players do develop as their playing ya know… It’s actually the best way for them to develop.

        Taking a WR #1 and basically giving them a redshirt year means the team didn’t improve this offseason with its 1st round selection for this season which, is the goal of the offseason.

        This team is not built in a way that it can just load up on one position through the draft and leave the others more bare.

        We actually tried that the entire Shanahan era when every season Shanahan basically ignored the defense – except for 2011 – and our defense was never above average. In 2011 we invested heavily in the defense both in the draft and in free agency and we went from 31st to 11th that year. Then, some players got hurt and Shanahan didn’t cut them and replace them. Adam Carriker and Stephen Bowen stayed on the Redskins roster a year too long. We paid them to basically not play for two seasons.

        Yet, everyone blamed Haz because because he couldn’t make chicken soup out of chicken poop.

    • Mr.moneylover - Apr 4, 2016 at 2:44 PM

      Yea I like keanu Neal from Florida they said he moved up on some scout’s board after his pro day

  2. redskinfromanotherstate - Apr 4, 2016 at 11:53 AM

    Love the Alex Collins pick but no way he’s there in the 4th rd

  3. hasasimo - Apr 4, 2016 at 11:54 AM

    Not a bad job overall, but yeah… definitely have to grab our Safety earlier on. Huge, huge hole. Joseph is my preference.

  4. habby80 - Apr 4, 2016 at 12:02 PM

    I like the top three picks, but I think you could have gone RB later in the draft.

    Diondre Hall is a DB that prob would have been available in the 4th. 6-2, 200lbs, 4-year starter with experience at CB, S, and hybrid-LB. Would fit the jack-of-all trades DB mold that the Skins have been using.

    At RB, you prob could have picked up Arkansas RB Jonathan Williams in the 6-7th round. Was out all of 2015 with a foot injury, but came back and play in the Senior Bowl. So he should be relatively fresh assuming the injury is behind him. Good production his Jr year. Quick, with ability to be physical and can catch and block.

  5. hail74 - Apr 4, 2016 at 12:04 PM

    One of the knocks on A’shawn is his motor, not sure he’s what scots looking for. While I worry about Doctson’s ability to get separation at the next level, I’d take him over Thomas everyday of the week. Not a bad draft tho.

    • ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© - Apr 4, 2016 at 12:42 PM

      Agreed on the worries about A’shawn.

      Also, I doubt Billings will go so soon when the real draft rolls around.

  6. skinsfan121 - Apr 4, 2016 at 12:23 PM

    Love 1st round pick. Feel like a WR in 2nd round is a luxury we don’t have right now. Would rather see that in the secondary either a safety or a corner. Still don’t know when Jarrett will be 100% DHall is getting up there in age, Culliver is rehabbing another knee injury. Need some talent back there.

    just feel like their is too much talent in this draft on defense to bypass it in rounds 2 and 3 for offense.

    • Rich Tandler - Apr 4, 2016 at 12:33 PM

      I promise that a second-round WR won’t feel like a luxury when Garcon and Jackson are gone in a year and you have a big WR who has year in the NFL under his belt. :)

      • Mr.moneylover - Apr 4, 2016 at 2:36 PM

        Michael Thomas don’t look that big compared to the other big WRs in the NFL …I think redskins will pick a WR in the draft but it won’t be Michael Thomas…no speed and not a deep threat another Ryan grant … I do believe redskins will pay to keep at least 1 of our WRs I’m leaning towards Djax because he open things up for p.garcon and Jordan reed

    • jonevans511 - Apr 4, 2016 at 1:03 PM

      You make a good point but the draft is not about the upcoming year, it’s about the next 3-5 years and beyond. Passing on a potential game-changing (maybe a stretch for the guys in this range but work with me) WR “early” because we don’t need one right now isn’t a good strategy. You build the team with both short and long-term goals in mind, but you have to weight the long-term goals much more unless you’re right on the cusp of Super Bowl contention. We’re not there yet, so I’d rather stock up on valuable play-makers at any and all positions instead of just worrying about the immediate needs we have to address.

      • John - Apr 5, 2016 at 10:46 AM

        Correct. This team has had a taste of success with more to come but is in desperate need of playmakers on both sides of the ball. They will be feeling their age at WR before to long. Not to mention that they will more than likely lose one over $ in the off season. Time to draft one and work him in with an eye on replacing Garcon. Garcon is still solid but has slowed down and does not seem willing to move re: $. Regarding drafting WRs and a redshirt year, most don’t come in and rock it, the first year, unless their name is AJ Green or Julio Jones.

        The Skins did load up in 2011 on defense, however, the only guy left is Kerrigan? Bowen, Carrier were stopgaps. They played well but the Skins never drafted replacement starters.

  7. renhoekk2 - Apr 4, 2016 at 12:41 PM

    Triedthe Fanspeak Draft sitet myself and this is what I ended up with.

    So many different ways to go. Kind of gives you a better appreciation of the decisions that need to be made. Thought about ILB and QB like Rich did, but there were players I liked better at other positions. I can see why Scot would prefer 10-12 picks. Makes it much easier with more picks.

    • Mr.moneylover - Apr 4, 2016 at 2:28 PM

      Vernon Hargreaves lll will not fall to the redskins and Kenny Clark is a third or 4 fourth round pick because theirs gonna more talented players in front of him…I agree with Sean Davis a third round pick who have first round talent…I think WR Kolby Listenbee from TCU is a sleeper pick because he’s a former track star and he made josh Doctson job more easy I can see him going late in the round

      • renhoekk2 - Apr 4, 2016 at 4:18 PM

        Agree VH won’t be there but that’s the way the draft simulator played out. I wasn’t going to pass him up. Ran it a second time with the same exact criteria and it was a completely different draft. I was drafting for different positions in different rounds (as long as you adhere to some sort of BPA theory). The only player I drafted the same was Glasgow from Mich. Shows how you need two or three contingency plans for how the draft may play out.

      • kenlinkins - Apr 4, 2016 at 4:31 PM

        You really have Sean Davis rated as high as a maybe first round talent (that will go later)? I agree that Randy Edsall mismanaged this kid moving him back and forth from Safety to CB and a full year in the NFL as a FS could find him as a starter before the end of 2016. The risk seems to be that you just can not measure the growth due to the position change. I like the kids skill set and most of the mistakes I saw were “rookie” type things, but I have him as a 4th or 5th round pick. I am not saying you are wrong as I too think he could be a steal (someone who is not anywhere near done getting better) but I am not sold his risk is worth more than a 4th round pick.

        • renhoekk2 - Apr 5, 2016 at 9:43 AM

          This is from a draft simulator where you are involved in a draft scenario and players are coming off the board, like a fantasy football draft. Except it shows a “big board” player ranking. It was obvious that it adheres pretty close to BPA and their ranking. I knew Davis would be available in the 3rd round but not 4th or 5th based on the ranking they gave him and they way players were coming off the board. I ran it two more times and he was never available in the 4th or 5th round.

      Dud there`s no way VH3 is on the board at 21

  8. Mr.moneylover - Apr 4, 2016 at 2:21 PM

    I think nick martin will be gone by the third round and I would rather take Chris Jones in the second round then Michael Thomas only because Chris Jones is capable of starting right away

  9. vtsquirm - Apr 4, 2016 at 2:36 PM

    Thomas doesn’t impress me in the least. I’d prefer we take a CB, S, or another DL here… but if Billings is gone in the 1st, I’d have probably taken my CB there and then a DL in the 2nd.

  10. cbckbrown - Apr 4, 2016 at 2:40 PM

    Rich

    Wondering your thoughts on this. I think Scott is playing everybody. I think he’s gonna move Reed or Paul or both to Wr then take a true dual threat tight end like Hilunter Henry-possibly early. I think they want that unknown factor for the offense to keep the defense guessing. I’m not sure they’re worried about WR at all.

    • Rich Tandler - Apr 4, 2016 at 2:44 PM

      Sorry, but Reed and Paul are TE’s. Reed will continue to line up in the slot but he’s not a wideout.

      • cbckbrown - Apr 4, 2016 at 2:59 PM

        I’m curious what makes them a TE? I keep reading on sights like this-not saying u said it-that Reed can’t block. And we know he can run routes so why not?

        • ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© - Apr 4, 2016 at 3:20 PM

          Niles Paul was a WR. It didn’t work out, so they (and he) made himself into a TE.
          ~

        • Rich Tandler - Apr 4, 2016 at 3:59 PM

          Speed, or lack thereof, for one thing. At 4.72 he’s a reasonably fast tight end and a mismatch against safeties. But that’s very slow for a WR, virtually any CB in the league would be able to cover him.

          Why would not use him exactly the same way you did last year? Find a WR to play WR and let Reed do what has led to great success.

        • cbckbrown - Apr 4, 2016 at 11:23 PM

          Ok I see what Rich is saying.

          As far as Niles Paul he was a great st player who they saw potential. If I remember right they had a lot of WR at the time and few tight ends and they saw potential in him but took a while for him to develop. I believe he ran a 4.4 . Perhaps not quick enough on the outside for nfl

        • redskinsnameisheretostay - Apr 5, 2016 at 8:28 AM

          If you see some of the times ran in this year’s combine, you’d know Paul had the speed for an NFL WR. Not elite speed but enough. He always had questionable hands but was a very physical blocker down field playing wide out.

          It was Shanahan’s choice to move him to tight end. Shanahan envisioned grooming Paul, whom already was plenty physical enough, into a Shannon Sharp type of player to add some speed the TE position. Since he has put on somewhere up around 40 pounds in this transition, I think it’s a bit too much at this point to have him switch back even if the coaches wanted him to.

        • John - Apr 5, 2016 at 10:11 AM

          Think of him as being very much like Clint Didier, when he came out of College. Didier was the big receiver catching passes at Nigel Lomax’s pro day. The Skins thought highly of him and used him as an H-Back, mostly catching passes as he was not much of a blocker. He used to totally torch Bill Bates of Dallas.

          Reed was a tight end coming out of Florida. Has a basketball background which gives him his movement (hips) for route running. Not much of a blocker but willing to and makes the effort but needs to work on it.

          Niles Paul is a decent backup H-Back but I see the extra poundage slowing him down as an inline tight end.

    • John - Apr 5, 2016 at 10:20 AM

      Regarding Reed, the idea is to isolate him against linebackers and safeties. If he is on one side split out and the other side is a bunch, depending on Reeds match up (lb or soft) single coverage, toss it to Reed. If Reed hasa corner on him or a llinebacker with a safety shading a double, then go to one of the bunch receivers on the other side. Its all about mismatches to get the upper hand. Look out in the red zone when Reed is on one side and Davis is in the bunch on the other.

  11. Mr.moneylover - Apr 4, 2016 at 2:51 PM

    If Notre Dame RB CJ Prosise their in the third round redskins should pick him he will be the steal of the draft he can do everything I watch Notre Dame season that guy can take it for a TD at anytime Hes a play maker for sure

    I’m glad most of you have fun with the mock drafts. As for me and since I haven’t voiced my annual opinion/disdain about mock drafts this year, here it goes: ALL mock drafts should be mocked. All criticism of these mock drafts should also be subject to mockery. How is anyone here qualified to say whether so-and-so will be gone or what’s-his-name will be drafted too high that such-and-such spot? Morgan Moses was going to be a late first round, remember? (Within reason, of course. For instance Christian Hackenburg will not be a 1st round pick despite what you may hear on Penn State radio.) All of us base our opinions on this subject off the very subjective analysis of others who are absolute failures in their field. Mel Kiper is probably still trying to sell Jimmy Clausen as a legit NFL QB to anyone who will listen. Predicting players in the late first round is about the equivalent of pinning the tail on the donkey. After the first round, it’s like predicting the amount of jelly beans in a jar. Even with all the insight and knowledge we have about the Redskins’ needs and where the talent is in this year’s draft, I’m taking the field. The Redskins will draft someone not listed on any of the top fifty mock drafts. I imagine we will have mentioned this young man once or twice before then but at the same time I would not be shocked if his name never comes up until then.

    There’s my one and done pooh-poohing of everyone’s favorite carnival game. Have fun continuing in the speculation (which I enjoy on all other things Redskin-related) and good luck with your picks.

    • redskinsnameisheretostay - Apr 4, 2016 at 6:23 PM

      “Within reason, of course. For instance Christian Hackenburg will not be a 1st round pick despite what you may hear on Penn State radio.”

    • John - Apr 5, 2016 at 9:58 AM

      Never, ever, ever, pay attention to what Kiper has to say. He is so wrong, so often, its beyond belief.

        Yep. Just him.

      • bangkokben - Apr 5, 2016 at 10:01 AM

        Kiper is so wrong, so often, and so pompous about it; it’s all part of the entertainment package. The others are just as wrong but not so smarmy about it.

    • renhoekk2 - Apr 5, 2016 at 4:03 PM

      It’s pretty much the only football related thing for football fans to do this time of year. Other than the guys getting paid to be “experts” I don’t think most fans take it very seriously Except for Robert Griffin III I don’t think most fans get emotionally invested in the draft or the players selected. Under normal circumstance it’s usually a wait and see approach with drafted players for most fans. I have positions that I think most fans agree need to be upgraded, but I don’t particularly care what players Scot picks or what round they are selected in.

  14. pyroman99 - Apr 4, 2016 at 5:02 PM

    Above all, guys with the potential to be play makers. More Preston Smiths, fewer Trent Murphys.

  15. Jlb12300 - Apr 4, 2016 at 5:26 PM

    I like Reed better . Can agree on every one very strong choices but the center. I think that we have our center already in camp. I would say another DL or trade down #3 . By the way thanks for the mock . Your opinions are more right than wrong with the skins.

  17. hotpicksblog - Apr 4, 2016 at 9:29 PM

    now that I know what you all think….let me tell you what I think. I think Mock Drafts are pretty silly outside the top 10 picks. Nobody ever gets them even close to the way it goes. And a 7 round mock is way more than silly. i think it serves a more useful purpose to list your top 100-120 players.

    I mean I could say “oh I prefer my cousin Joe Smith, a safety from blah blah college…but who really cares about who I prefer. This is all about who Scott M prefers. And ya ain’t a gonna find out anything from that man because he is a Pro at being tight lipped. He has SHUT DOWN the rumors out of Redskin Park and I love it.

    Good job, Rich. A very good draft. I just don’t like Kessler because he’s shorter than I prefer, but his accuracy is impressive. Safety was addressed too late in your mock. I think they should take a safety in round 3.

  20. cbckbrown - Apr 5, 2016 at 6:25 AM

    I did the draft at fan speak I don’t think it’ll happen like this but if it did!!!
    (Fyi I went for best avail player ESP I. First)

    Round 1 Ezekiel Elliot
    Round 2 Keanu Neal
    Round 3 Sheldon Day
    Round 4 Jihad Ward
    Round 5 Charone Peak
    Round 6 Graham Glasgow
    Round 7 Jaydeze Calhoun
    Round 7 Jayden Mickens

    While I know this is wishful thinking, this draft would be taking arguably the most dynamic playmaker, the hardest hitting impactful safety, 2 starting d linemen, a huge and fast WR that if not for injury would be ranked my vi higher, a starting center, a cb and a lightening quick receiver/returner

    This is how I went on fanspeak, you can only work with what you are given right…..
    VH3 was available so I took him…. and I took Jaylen for the future. I think I managed to address some areas of immediate need (CB – VH3, S – Powell, C – Martin) while also looking to the future (ILB – J Smith and trade chip QBs Cardale and Cody), plus mega sleeper WR Payton from UCLA.

    Fanspeak’s site is an easy way to put yourself in the GM’s shoes during a draft day scenario – as long as you don’t take it too seriously, it is a fun mental exercise!

    Here is my effort as of this morning – tried to avoid making any significant trade backs, just a handful of minor ones to pick up an additional 3rd rounder and two more late round picks (ended up with 11 picks in total). Didn’t intend to take an RB until 4th round or later, but Elliott was there and BPA at the time I picked in the 1st, so I rolled with it…
