UPDATED: Redskins Mock Draft Tracker

Posted by Chris Herting on April 24, 2013 – 8:15 am

AP120428155424-(1)

Please note that these posts do not indicate any plans for the draft, yet is simply a look, for your enjoyment, at potential prospects at pick No. 51.

Two newcomers (D.J. Swearinger and D.J. Hayden) along with one name repeated twice (Johnthan Banks) headline our last and final mock draft tracker. (Yesterday, Redskins Blog profiled Banks’ teammate Darius Slay)

Here’s a quick recap of who the experts have picked over the course of our eight mock draft tracker installments (click on the name for each players’ complete combine profile). Listed in order of position, there have been eight different cornerbacks, six different safeties, one defensive end and one defensive tackle linked to your Redskins this spring – this is just in the five mock drafts that we’ve tracked. Many more names have popped up over the last few months.

Now, obviously there are no guarantees come draft time. In fact, last year Robert Griffin III at number two was probably as close to a guarantee that you will ever see.

However, what we can guarantee you is that the coaches and front office have a plan, one that to some extent most likely involves all of the players listed above. Next step is seeing where the chips fall on Thursday and Friday night and how teams drafting above them value this talented crop of guys. Is there a trade in the cards? You never know, crazier things have happened.

Regardless, here’s an updated look at the Mock Draft boards including some recognizable names who experts think could be wearing the burgundy and gold by the time the second round concludes next Friday night.

WalterFootball.com – Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State – Updated 4/23/2013

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 are 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.

Last Week: Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State

DraftTek – D.J. Hayden, CB, Houston – Updated 4/23/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “Hayden helped Navarro Junior College win a national championship in 2010, and then aided the Cougars 13-1 finish in 2011 as Conference USA’s Defensive Newcomer of the Year as a junior (11 pass break-ups, five forced fumbles). He was having a fantastic senior campaign until a life threatening injury cut it short. How he checks out medically will play a major role in his draft status.” Click here for Hayden’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: Richard Marshall

Last Week: David Amerson, CB/S, NC State

Fanspeak.com – D.J. Swearinger, S, South Carolina – Updated 4/22/2013

Scouting Combine Bio: “This tenacious hitter originally planned on going to Tennessee, but the resignation of Phillip Fulmer sent him into the arms of Steve Spurrier at South Carolina. He’s played in every game since he arrived on campus, except for the 2012 matchup against Missouri, for which he was suspended after a hit on a defenseless receiver. He has played both free and strong safety, and his good performances as a spot duty at corner against big receivers suggests he has the potential to cover NFL tight ends in coverage well. He projects to be a day two pick.” Click here for Swearinger’s complete combine profile.

NFL Comparison: T.J. Ward

Last Week: Margus Hunt, DE, SMU

Football Fan Spot – Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State – Updated 4/22/2013

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.

NFL Draft Geek – David Amerson, CB/S, NC State – Updated 4/23/2013

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: David Amerson, CB/S, NC State

    I’m liking the SC guy.. Sounds like a good fit for the SKINS!! I’m hoping for a S with the first pick but we have a pretty good name for drafting well so will be happy with whoever we choose! #HTTR

    Would love to see a fellow UConn guy with the Redskins, but the LSU safety (Reid) and the Boise State guy would do nicely. Real question is who will be left at #51? I look for Washington to trade back for some extra picks again this draft, but hoping they hold onto their first pick in the 2nd rd. Can we get another Hankerson-type WR in this draft, or is secondary just too big a hole to ignore? How is Chase Minnefield doing, btw? Anybody out there heard anything lately? HTTR!

    I would take Terrance Williams @ 51, then take Rambo, Amerson or Shawn Williams in Rd 3.

    Williams has chemistry with RG3 and would give defenses problems with Garcon on the opposite side. I would not trade back for extra picks, we already have 2 5th rounders. I’d also go after Devin Taylor and Kenjon Barner in the later rounds.

    Tyrann Mathieu Honey Badger @51

    1. If Cyprien (SS) is available I take him at 51 then Rambo (FS) in the 3rd and a receiver or corner in the 4th.

    2. If Cyprien is gone I take Terrance Williams at 51 then rambo (FS) in 3rd and then Shawn williams (SS) in 4th. Rambo and williams played together at Georgia.

    IDEAL SITUATION: Trade Kirk Cousins for a high second round pick. With that pick take Johnthan Banks (CB), then at 51 Start the process of my previous #2. This completely revamps our backfield and gives RG3 a target he will surely use as an endzone threat and who he already has experience playing with.
