2018 NFL Fanspeak Mock Draft:
I went defensive heavy in this draft. That was mainly due to the fact that defensive talent>offensive talent at very pick. Spoiler Alert: The Redskins would have to re-sign Lauvao or another FA LG option to fill that position or at least another year
RD1: Minkah Fitzpatrick, CB, Alabama.
Minkah would be able to filler Fuller’s role right away, while also being moved around on the defense. He’s very versatile and should be able to play CB, Slot, S, and LB.
RD2: Maurice Hurst, DL, Michigan.
This would be another dream come true. Maybe for some people because of his talent, and to others, he’s a DL. Hurst has good quickness, feet, and bend to get round blockers. He’ll create 1-on-1 matchups for himself and others.
RD4: Uchenna Nwosu, EDGE, USC.
He has some questions about his commitment to the game, but if he stays committed, he could be a steal in the 4th. The #Redskins could get an athletic rusher, that still has a ton of untapped potential.
RD5: Andrew Brown, DL, Virginia.
Homegrown kid who has some untapped potential. His college career didn’t go as he wanted, but he improved his draft stock a ton at the Senior Bowl. High motor with good quickness.
RD5: Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona State.
I didn’t like waiting this long to take an offensive player, but drafting Ballage wouldn’t be a move to complain over. He was under used at ASU and will still have fresh legs with more to show. He’s a big bodied back with great athleticism.
RD6: Dorian O’Daniel, ILB, Clemson.
What a great plan it would be for the #Redskins to replace Special Teams captain Niles Paul with a special teams ace in O’Daniel. He has a ton of production and was PFF’s highest graded player on the Tigers defense last season.
RD7: Damon Webb, S, Ohio State.
Webb was a corner-turned-safety, so he’s still learning the position. He has good instincts that will help him throughout his career.
RD7: Korey Robinson, WR, Southern Miss.
Robertson has great size to play on the outside. He caught 12 touchdowns his senior season too. Physical player who isn’t afraid of contact and to high-point the ball. The #Redskins have shown a lot of interest in the WR.
