Just as the The Redskins Blog did yesterday with ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay, today we take a look at what NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah has in mind for the Redskins at the fifth-overall selection in this year’s NFL Draft.
And just like Kiper Jr. and McShay who believe Randy Gregory and Shane Ray are fits for the Redskins, Jeremiah is thinking defensive end at this pick, only he sees USC’s Leonard Williams donning burgundy and gold one day.
In three full seasons at USC, Williams recorded 247 tackles and 20 sacks according to CFBstats.com.
As a freshman, Williams, playing defensive tackle, recorded 64 tackles, eight sacks and one interception to earn Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year honors.
In his sophomore season, Williams recorded 74 tackles and six sacks while also recovering two fumbles,

Then, as a junior, he recorded 80 tackles with seven sacks while being selected as an All-American by several media outlets.
After the 2014 season concluded, Williams announced his intentions to enter the NFL Draft on Dec. 29.
