UPDATE: Redskins Mock Draft Tracker

Posted by Chris Herting on March 19, 2013 – 3:45 pm


Last year, the impact player of the draft was quarterback Robert Griffin III, who joined forces with running back Alfred Morris for immediate rookie impact.

This year, the Redskins will again be looking for a player that can come in and contribute right away. The difference this year is the team will have to wait until the second round to find said player. But have no fear: a playmaker can be found at number 51.

With the release of CB DeAngelo Hall, it goes without saying that the roster is pretty slim in the secondary which means the team will certainly need to address the position in the draft, barring any trades or free agent signings.

The good news for Redskins fans is that this year’s draft is incredibly deep in the secondary with talented players across the board. Consensus among NFL experts is that this draft class has upwards of double-digit safeties and cornerbacks with NFL-starter caliber skills whom could have an immediate impact and should be available deep into the second round.

The uncertainty is what order they will come off the board. So let’s go ahead and take a look at our updated Mock Draft Tracker and a few players the experts think the Redskins may have their eye on.

DraftTek – David Amerson, CB, North Carolina State – Updated 3/17/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “Amerson is one of the more interesting prospects in the draft. His play making and ball skills are reminiscent of Asante Samuel. However, unlike Samuel, Amerson isn’t nearly as fluid out of his breaks or as technically sound in the fundamentals of the position. Amerisont is tall, physical, and some may project him to free safety because of his size, but it is likely that some team will take a chance on Amerson as a cornerback if he can prove that his foot quickness and fluidity are up to par.” Click here for Amerson’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: Sean Smith

Last Week: Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State

Fanspeak.com – Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State – Updated 3/18/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “Taylor is a physical and athletic cornerback looking to be the sixth Boise State defensive back to be drafted by NFL teams over the last eight years. He missed most of the second half of 2011 with a stress fracture in his leg, but returned with a vengeance during his senior year by excelling in man coverage on downfield routes. Since he remained helathy during his senior year, Taylor is poised for a second day or mid round selection, but he would be wise to improve his play against the run when in space.” Click here for Taylor’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: Drayton Florence

Last Week: Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International

NFL Draft Geek – Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma – Updated 3/19/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “Though shorter than most top safety prospects, Jefferson’s leadership skills, physicality around the line of scrimmage and his coverage skills will entice teams to pick him early in the 2013 draft.” Click here for Jefferson’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: T.J. Ward

Last Week: Eric Reid, S, LSU

WalterFootball.com – Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, Connecticut – Updated 3/19/2013

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

Last Week: Matt Elam, S, Florida

    Get your stud safety on board first. Thats your last line of defense if all else goes wrong. We need D.J. Swearinger but Ill take Baccari Rambo if he keeps his head straight.

    I actually just wrote an interesting article about the Redskins 4th round pick last year, Kirk Cousins. I think it’s an easy and enjoyable read. 🙂
