Round one- DE JJ Watt Wisconsin- He is a physical specimen at 6ft5 290 lbs who was a tackling machine while in school he is scheme diverse but fits best in the 3-4 scheme ideally. The Redskins need help on the line and he would be perfect opposite Adam Carriker and open up lanes for Brian Orakpo to go after the QB.

Round two-QB Andrew Dalton TCU- He fits perfectly in the Shanahan version of the west coast offense and is very accurate both in the pocket and on the move he doesn't have the strongest arm but its good enough to make all the throws. He has good leadership skills being a big time play maker and leader for the Horned Frogs the last four seasons. He may have to sit for most of his first year to learn, but with the Skins O line that is probably a good thing.

Round five-WR Austin Pettis Boise State- Malcolm Kelly must go he has done nothing for the Skins and is injury prone. Pettis is a big physical receiver at 6ft3 209 lbs who is a very good route runner and has good hands , his only draw back is that he is not a burner but he is the perfect possession receiver and could develop into a good number two.

Round five-OG Keith Williams Nebraska-Keith Williams is a mountain of a man at 6ft 5 315 lbs. He is great as a run blocker but may need work in pass protection but this due more to the system he played in at Nebraska which was run heavy. He is very athletic for his size and would be a nice addition to the Redskins line competing with Will Montgomery/Artis Hicks for a starting guard spot.

Round six-OLB/DE Ricky Elmore Arizona-This guy is a great pass rusher off the edge and would make a great tag team partner for Brian Orakpo. He is a physical freak at 6ft5 255 and seems like he could stand up and play rush OLB in a 3-4 , his college teammate Brooks Reed gets all the attention but this guy is very much just as good and would look great in Burgundy and Gold.

Round seven-ILB Akeem Dent Georgia- A tackling machine Dent is great against the run and displays great technique when tackling his weakness however is in coverage he is not very fast and may have trouble with TE's or RB in the flat, however he would be a great a special teams guy who could be groomed to replace London Fletcher .


Round Seven-CB Loyce Means Houston- With the pick the Redskins got from the Colts for Justin Tryon they should select this very athletic corner who is decent in coverage and has good recovery ability. He has decent hands and very good speed and could be a kick/punt returner as well . He could make the team but seems more of a practice type guy but the potential is there for future success.



We need a NT. Maybe Anthony Gray of So. Miss. in the 5th.

Blaine SUmner in the 5th if your looking for a NT prospect. Kids going to be a stud
Mike/Bruce - If your going to spring big this year in Free Agency, please spring big on offensive lineman! I cant watch Rabach anymore!

I haven't really looked into a bunch of these players but all in all your Draft 2.0 > Draft 1.0

I like Dalton and we would have to use our 2nd on him because he probably wouldn't be there by the 5th.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

Summer will probably be available after the draft. He's far more likely to make PS than roster. While he is extremely strong, his technic is poor because:
1) he could dominate D2 OL's with brute force.
2) He had D2 level coaching.

He's a project at best.
