Redskins Mock Draft Tracker

Posted by Chris Herting on March 6, 2013 – 2:54 pm


The NFL Scouting Combine is complete and national pundits have updated their draft boards to include their most recent evaluations of the prospects. Many of the more well-known draft boards only offer opinions on the first round of the NFL Draft, and considering that the Redskins don’t pick until the second round (51st overall), well, projecting the first thirty two picks simply doesn’t address the interests of Redskins fans.

So, we searched the internet for those next level mock drafts that provide a broader scope and offer complete analysis on how this year’s draft may unfold.

Although opinions on the exact players that the Redskins will draft vary, the common consensus remains that the Redskins will address needs in the secondary when the team selects at number fifty one.

Updated with the most recent projections, here’s the first installment with some of the players who experts around the league predict could be wearing the burgundy and gold come April.

WalterFootball.com – Matt Elam, S, Florida – Updated 3/6/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “Elam is one of the higher profile prospects at his position due to his onfield emotion and energy when lining up big hits in the open field. The junior thrives when his nunmber is called, and Elam was very visible since he frequently lined up in the box at strong safety. However, when looking beyond the splash plays, Elam lacks urgency to his game and can be seen standing around while others make the play. That combined with his tendency to launch himself at ball carriers rather than make form tackles may cause some evaluators to be a bit apprhensive. But, if the Gator can harness the electricity he flashes, Elam could end up being one of the top safeties in this class and is a potential first-round pick.” Click here for Elam’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: Quintin Mikell

Fanspeak.com – Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International – Updated 3/4/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “One of the hardest-hitting safeties in the 2013 draft class, Cyprien offers enough range to be reliable in box coverage while displaying an aggressive mentality againt ball carriers and receivers. He plays smart, and that might be the most improtant trait when looking at safeties. However, despite it being unique, Cyprien doesn’t have a very well known name … yet.” Click here for Cyprien’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: Jordan Babineaux

NFL Draft Geek – Eric Reid, S, LSU – Updated 3/1/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “The next SEC safety on which scouts have their eye, Reid brings the size, athleticism, intelligence and toughness to become an impact player in coverage (14 passes defended in the last two seasons) as well as against the run (91 total tackles) at the next level. The junior can get too overaggressive with his angles, but if Reid can rein in the athleticism, he has plenty of range to make plays all over the field.” Click here for Reid’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: Mark Barron

Football Fan Spot – Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, Connecticut – Updated 3/1/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “Wreh-Wilson is a tall, tough corner, with some ball skills. His length and short area quickness makes him an intriguing prospect, but his inability to quickly flip his hips and his lack of deep, recovery speed will likely limit him to a zone-based scheme.” Click here for Wreh-Wilson’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: Derek Cox

DraftTek – Logan Ryan, CB, Rutgers – Updated 3/6/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “Teams that value physicality and tackling ability from their corners will surely like Ryan. He’s an active, physical player that often finds himself around the football. He’s not the fastest, and will need to clean up his technique in order to be successful at the next level, but he is still likely to be a second-day selection.” Click here for Logan’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: Dunta Robinson

We won’t stop here as this will be the first of weekly mock draft updates as we inch closer to April’s draft.

Out of the players above, who do you think would be a good fit in the Redskins secondary?

    Cyprian is my pick but must admit don’t know alot about those listed. I do trust our draft people though, so will trust we got best available for our team when draft day comes!! #HTTR

    I also like David Amerson. See my Redskins secondary blog to get more details. I like the Honey Badger and Shamarko Thomas at safety. #Sportsweezy

    Pick up DJ Swearinger. He is a natural around the ball and can play both safety positions like our greatly missed Sean Taylor. He’s fast and a four year starter under Steve Spurrier. The kid is a ball hawk and shows a glimpse of Ed Reed’s ability to just appear and intercept passes or make big hits in the backfield. If he is there at 51 I don’t see another safety with his polish or leadership ability being that he was a captain in his senior year.

    Cyprien please. There needs to be a heavy hitter back there to deter WR’s. if Merriweather can stay healthy I think I would be pleased with this duo.

    Just as aprilwalker2013 posted, i don’t know a lot about Jonathan Cyprien but he seems the best choice for now.

    I like that Elam can catch, but I’d like to see Reid in Redskins uniform. If he’s anything like the last safety we got from LSU then I’ll be happy. He’d just have to stay healthy. I would say we should address corner but really they had no help last season. So if Merriweather comes back healthy and we get any of these safeties we’ll be fine next year

    Ithink reid would be a good fit for my skins.Comes from a team that knows how to win.Is aggressive,is a hitter too.We haven’t had a safty like him since the days of Darrel Green.I like this kid!I say,GO FOR IT SKINS!!HTTR!

    I agree. But what about the Honey badger. Tyroin mathis, the guy who sat out for a year from LSU. The playmaker..

  11. By dagrazyo on Mar 7, 2013 | Reply

    I think that Cyprien sounds like a good fit. Truly though, I’m just glad that the Skins would address their biggest need which is improvement in the secondary.

    Agree with Mcconneyhead. If he’s still available at 51 he’s GOT to be the pick!

  13. By mysterick on Mar 7, 2013 | Reply

    I agree we should pick up the Honey Badger – but he should be available in a later round. RGIII called him on the phone: which does not necessarily indicate interest by the team, BUT if he came here I am sure he would work and play hard.

  14. By mysterick on Mar 7, 2013 | Reply

    I agree we should get Honey Badger but not at 51. He will likely still be around 4th-5th round. Too many questions about size and the year off, and the weed. RGIII DID talk to him on the phone, which does not necessarily indicate interes by the team, but I am sure that if he came, he would work and play hard

    ACK! – Thought I was logged out b4 the 1st post! Sorry!

    How about a receiver with good hands that can catch the ball? Stedman Bailey from WVU would certainly fit that description, and should be there at #51.

    Safety, safety, it’s what we really need. The middle of the field and the cross routes are widely open for WR and TE that did hurt us really bad last season. We either get a good draft or any available FA from around the league to fit in with our D and become an elite Safety, you know, just like our beloved and long gone Sean Taylor (R.I.P.) did, which I believe no one ever is going to match. If not, then I believe that “Honey Badger” would be our best pick… …Go Redskins!

    Cyprien might not be there at the 51 but I think Elm will fit well in redskins defense…he can cover catch and hit…not to mention he is a problem in the box and we know how we like to out safeties in the box…but if Elam isn’t there then I say Ried from LSU….I also agree with most that we should take Mathieu but nit til the 4th or one if the picks in 5th other than the weed problem (which I think is behind him) he will be a good wit in slot corner and kick and punt returns…I say third round take a reciever another weapon for RG3…someone like Bailey if he is there or Ryan Swope

  20. By poppyshoes on Mar 25, 2013 | Reply

    Whomever they pick, he needs to have some height. We are too small for the WR and some TE in today’s game. I am back and forth with the honey bager. I think he can cover the slot. His off field acts are risky, but give him a contract simular to that cow player who beat up his mom (name does’nt deserve print) it may work…who knows. We just have to fix this secondary, it was our weakest link.

    KU has a sleeper Hybrid Saftey named Tunde Bakare I’ve done my research and he can ball, Kansas University did not really use him the right way but he made alot of plays when he had opportunitys

    Thank you, I’ve just been looking for info approximately this topic for a long time and yours is the greatest I have came upon till now. However, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you positive about the supply?|What i don’t realize is in truth how you’re not really much more well-appreciated than you might be right now. You are very intelligent.
