UPDATE: Redskins Mock Draft Tracker

Posted by Chris Herting on March 27, 2013 – 8:54 am

The team announced last week that they had signed CB EJ Biggers from Tampa Bay reuniting him with Redskins secondary coach Raheem Morris. Morris has high remarks for the fourth year pro out of Western Michigan telling ESPN 980, “He has elite qualities. He’s a fast guy, who could really stick you in coverage.”

Regardless, what the move does mean is that the Redskins addressed some of the need in the secondary with the signing of Biggers, a capable corner who started 12 games last year for the Buccaneers. What still remains is that the team will most likely continue to add depth even if they believe Biggers has the qualities of a prototypical “shutdown” corner in this league.

Fact of the matter is that the NFL nowadays is a passing league and most teams prefer to have three or more cornerbacks on the roster who are capable of covering elite NFL wideouts.

So here’s an updated look at various Mock Draft boards and a few players the experts think the Redskins may have their eye on. Consensus is still with the Redskins selecting secondary help but the players are still in flux with Blidi Wreh-Wilson (CB, Connecticut) as the only player repeated in the mocks below. Keep in mind that this is not an exact science but, according to scouts, there are some very talented players left on the board at number 51.

WalterFootball.com – Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, Connecticut – Updated 3/26/2013

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

DraftTek – Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State – Updated 3/26/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “Slay is an aggressive corner with good length. He is skilled in playing the hands of the receiver and forces incompletions because of it. Slay’s toughness translates when it comes to his run defense and special teams play. He’s going to have to prove his speed at the combine, but he should go in the middle rounds.” Click here for Slay’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: Antoine Cason

Last Week: David Amerson, CB, North Carolina State

Fanspeak.com – Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State – Updated 3/25/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “SEC receivers were hoping Banks would head to the NFL after his second-team All-SEC junior season, but they had to deal with the tall, lean three-year starter’s ball skills and competitive streak for another season before he headed off to challenge pro receivers. He has experience playing a number of spots in the secondary, beginning his career as a safety, before eventually settling on the boundary corner and nickel spots. His skills is man coverage were under-utilized at Mississippi State, and if he can keep adding weight to his long, wiry frame, has the potential to be an excellent press-man corner, a skill that will make get him selected in the top 40 picks.” Click here for Banks’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: Aqib Talib

Last Week: Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State

NFL Draft Geek – Eric Reid, S, LSU – Updated 3/26/2013

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

Last Week: Tony Jefferson, FS, Oklahoma

Football Fan Spot – Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, Connecticut – Updated 3/26/2013

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.
