Redskins Leaning Towards Oklahoma State OT Russell Okung?

The Redskins hold the fourth pick in the 2010 NFL draft. The pre-draft buzz centers around two positions -- left tackle and quarterback, both of which are perceived to be needs for the team.

Jason Campbell is a capable starter in the interim if the Redskins decide to address the left side of the offensive line.  According to Michael Lombardi of the National Football Post, reports of Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen working out in Washington D.C. could be a smokescreen.

The Redskins seem more intent on drafting a left tackle than a quarterback in the first round, so all those Jimmy Clausen rumors to D.C. might be premature. I'm hearing Oklahoma State's Russell Okung might be the pick.

You can't really argue with this. Sure, the Redskins are likely doing some due diligence with Clausen but unless they're absolutely convinced he's the guy, Okung is a nice, safe pick.
