I wasn't planning on doing a separate post, but I wanted to be cool like everyone else. We all put a lot of work into these mocks and we all love the draft. So let me know what you think, or tell me to piss off for posting another Recap.
Round 1 Robert Griffin III QB, Baylor – Round 1 was obvious and we picked the franchise QB.
Round 3 Brandon Boykin CB, Georgia – He was the best player available on both boards we were using and he is going to be an excellent corner at the next level. DeAngelo Hall might be on his last year with the Skins if his performance does not match his paycheck again.
Round 4 Jeff Allen OT/OG, Illinois – Offensive Line is 1B to the Secondary’s 1A on our needs list. Jeff Allen was drafted a lot higher than I expected and we were disappointed not have get him. When the Bears offered him up to anyone for Brewster, I offered our second 4th round pick, and amazingly this was accepted straight up. Major steal, extremely happy this trade was made.
Round 4 George Iloka SS, Boise St – With Allen secured we wanted to stick to BPA. I saw Iloka was not picked and he was the top player our list. If you have noticed the dumpster diving the Redskins have been doing at the safety position, you know a top safety like Iloka is still a big need. I feel he could beat out most of the current safeties on the roster, and is a solid addition and great value in the 4th round
Round 5 Jarius Wright WR, Arkansas – Speedy WR runs a 4.4 40, and can stretch the field. The receivers are another area that needs an upgrade. Garcon, Morgan, and Hankerson will all be weapons for RGIII.
Round 6 Nick Foles QB, Arizona – This was a pure value pick, and he was easily the BPA at the top of the 6th round. He will start as the 3rd QB, and will be developed to be a great backup QB. He has footwork issues which Kyle Shanahan will work on. Rex Grossman’s days are numbered if Foles works out as planned.
Round 6 Terrance Ganaway RB, Baylor – A familiar face for RGIII to hand the ball off to. This is a good value at this point in the draft, and Shanny gets his mandatory late round RB to develop. There are only 2 RB’s currently on the roster, and both had injuries near the end of the season, and Hightower has not been resigned.
Round 6 Nate Potter OT, Boise St – Another lineman that fits perfectly for the Redskins offense that was picked before we had a chance to draft him. The Raiders drafted him and put him on the trade block. We were able to grab him for 2 of our acquired 6th rounders in another really good trade.
Round 6 Chris Marve ILB, Vanderbilt – Marve is a project for London Fletcher to take under his wing and develop. My co-GM ENsDad27 is very high on his potential, and it is position of need.
Round 7 Tydreke Powell DT, North Carolina – Pure value pick here. He will go higher than this in the real draft. Will be a good player to develop in Haslett’s defense.
Adam Gettis OG Iowa - He was on our radar starting in the 6th round, but we were hoping he would fall and then Tydreke Powell was available in the 7th. He could develop into a solid player, but will need time. Guard depth is needed badly.
Kevin Koger TE Michigan - Big TE who can catch, but needs to improve his blocking. Could come in and compete with Logan Paulsen for the 3rd TE spot. With Cooley's injuries and age, and Fred "Chong" Davis's off-field activities, it would be good tobring in a developmental TE.
Rokevius Watkins OG South Carolina Another guard for depth, and Watkins has also played RT. Basically going to be a camp body this year, and a practice squad candidate to develop.
Blair Walsh K Georgia I don't consider kicker to be a huge need, but Graham Gano can always use competition. He could also use a line that doesn't allow as many blocked attempts as last year. He has been rated the top kicker, but struggled this year.
Tony Dye SS UCLA Dye didn't play much last year with a lingering neck injury. This was my third replacement UDFA pick and it would be a camp invite to compete with our Longest Yard secondary.
