Washington cleaned up in the first three rounds of the draft, getting three potential starters. Wide receiver Josh Doctson was somewhat of a surprising choice, but a good one in the first round. Some considered him the draft's top wide receiver thanks his ability to go up and grab the ball. Ioannidis is a tough player up front who can work the nose even though he's not the biggest. The coaching staff will love him. Steven Daniels in the seventh round was a savvy pick. Washington needs a middle linebacker and he can bring it on the inside. Running back Keith Marshall could be a nice stash pick on the practice squad. His speed in the open field is impressive.

Josh Doctson brings with him a desire to do do everything it takes to catch the football. He has shown exceptional body control, balance and effort when going to challenge for balls in the air. When you heard Jay Gruden talk about Doctson after the pick was made, you could hear that he was pleased--as any offensive-minded coach would be.
Building on what looks to be another stellar draft by Scot "McLovin" McCloughan, the Redskins have added Su'a Cravens in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Announced by Ken Harvey, the pick is an investment in the defense, as the USC product can contribute in multiple ways.
The defensive back from Virginia Tech figures to play in nickel packages right away, if you believe what Mike Mayock has to say about it. It was just last season when Washington was converting wide receivers to corners and signing players off the street. With the additions of Cravens and Fuller, our secondary is younger and plenty talented.
Based on who is on our roster, and the kind of players McLovin seems to favor, Ioannidis figures to have a real shot to get on the field early and often for the Redskins in 2016, right?
Nate Sudfeld, the quarterback out of IU, will be asked to come in and study behind Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy. We all were pretty sure that McCloughan was going to take a quarterback, and we end up getting the one that Tim Strachan recommended early in the offseason. He has struggled with consistency as a starter, but his arm is pretty legit. His size is going to help him--at 6'6", he is the tallest quarterback on our roster (wait...does that make him a red zone threat? I kid.)
The seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft brings Steven Daniels, the linebacker out of BC, to the Washington Redskins. As fans are trying to size up the draft class that Scot McCloughan has assembled, McLovin is putting the final touches on it. We shall see if Daniels can crack the linebacker depth chart this summer.
Marshall was the fastest running back at the NFL Scouting Combine, with a 4.29-second 40-yard dash.
