A look at a possible Redskins mock

draft scenario"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Looks Like Someone Has A Sixpack Of The MondaysDaily SlopRedskins RecapsEDTShareTweetShareShareRedskins Mock Draft Scenario: Trading for RosenKelvin Kuo-USA TODAY SportsFor this Mock Draft Scenario using On the Clock Simulator I decided to combine two possible concepts for the Redskins. First I decided to trade the Redskins 2nd round pick and any additional selections in 2020 to the Cardinals for QB Josh Rosen. I then decided to trade back in the first round to add some extra key selections to round out the Redskins roster.As always you can follow along with the draft here: G CHRIS LINDSTROM Su’a Cravens Jersey , BOSTON COLLEGE-This is not the flashy pick ost people are looking for, but Lindstrom is a strong combination of safety and upside. He has All-Pro potential and could give the Redskins the best offensive line in the league. He’s a plug and play guy, who will help both Rosen and the Redskins run game from day 1. Trade: QB Josh Rosen--Redskins have to address their QB need and if they can land Rosen for just their 2nd and a lesser piece or two next year they have to take it. Rosen had a rough rookie campaign, but the upside is there and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him have a strong 2nd season.56: WR PARRIS CAMPBELL, OHIO STATE-Redskins are desperate for weapons and that becomes an even greater concern if they trade for Rosen. Currently the Redskins receiver group is among the bottom 5 of the league. Adding a dynamic playmaker like Campbell would be an immediate injection into their offense. He still needs to improve as a route runner, but when the ball is in his hands good things happen. He can create big plays any time he touches it, and he should easily take on the number 1 role on the team. 76: EDGE OSHANE XIMINES, OLD DOMINION-Ximines isn’t the top EDGE the Redskins are hoping for, but he’s a guy who can be productive and offer the Redskins a quality option. Ximines is generally a raw talent, but he has a solid athletic profile and impressive first step. He should push for a starting role (or at least the majority portion of a platoon) as a rookie and and can develop into a full time player down the road. 96: CB ISAIAH JOHNSON, HOUSTON-Johnson is an impressive 2nd tier corner in this class who should go somewhere in the 50-100 pick range. He ran a 4.4 at the Combine and offers impressive size and length. He’s still developing at the position, but he would be a natural successor to Josh Norman in 2020.101: TE KAHALE WARRING Brandon Scherff Jersey , SAN DIEGO STATE-Warring is quickly rising up draft boards as a raw prospect, with the upside to be a number 1 TE for a team in a couple of years. He has really good size and impressive athletic ability. His technique and route running need some work, but he showcases himself as a natural pass catcher. With the Redskins keeping both Reed and Davis this year, they wouldn’t have to force Warring into a large role and could let him develop over time. 123: S MARQUISE BLAIR, UTAH-I made a trade up into the 4th round to land a safety. With passing on a safety with some earlier picks, options were running thin on guys who can contribute. Blair has good athleticism and is a heavy hitter on the backend. While he wouldn’t necessarily start as a rookie, but he should push Nicholson for the role. Blair could carve out a solid amount of playing time as a rookie, and has the chance to start long term. 153: WR STANLEY MORGAN JR., NEBRASKA-Morgan is getting overlooked in this talented receiver group, but that could end up making him a steal in this draft. Morgan doesn’t stand out in any one area, but is solid across the board. He’s one of the safer receivers in this class and should quickly be able to contribute, both in the slot and on the outside. 227: OT TREY PIPKINS Preston Smith Jersey , SIOUX FALLS-Pipkins is a long tackle with intriguing developmental upside. He’s likely a long term project, which is why he will probably slide to the 6th or 7th round. While there is a chance he could make the 53 man roster, he might need a year on the practice squad. If the Redskins are patient with him though he could turn out to be s surprise sleeper.253: RB JALIN MOORE, APPALACHIAN STATE-While the Redskins are set at RB this year, that could change by 2020 with Peterson, Perine and potentially Thompson all off the roster. Moore is a solid RB prospect who is coming off an injury filled season. He’s the type of player the Redskins can probably stash on the practice squad for a year and hope he reaches his potential. Overview:This is the ideal draft strategy and class for the Redskins to quickly compete. Rosen gives them a young franchise QB, who already has had his growing pains. While he might not have the sophomore year of Patrick Mahomes, it wouldn’t be surprising if produced like Jared Goff did his 2nd season. To help out Rosen early the Redskins add a pair of high upside starters in Lindstrom and Campbell. Both should be key cogs in the Redskins offense as rookies and fill major needs. They also both can develop into top level players at their positions in future seasons. Stanley Morgan is another offensive player who should be able to help contribute as a rookie. While Warring is a bit more raw, his long term upside is impressive and he could be the team’s top TE by 2021. Defensively the Redskins don’t land any studs, but Ximines should see plenty of playing time as a rookie. I see mixed results early on, but he has 10+ sack potential. Johnson and Blair should also both contribute as rookies and could be starters by next season. What do you think? If they trade for Rosen, would you then trade back as well? Hogs Haven takes a look at 2019 NFL Draft prospects who could contribute to the Redskins"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Looks Like Someone Has A Sixpack Of The MondaysDaily SlopRedskins RecapsTo Make Plays At LSU; How Could He Help The Redskins?New Case Keenum Jersey ,1commentHogs Haven takes a look at 2019 NFL Draft prospects who could contribute to the RedskinsEDTShareTweetShareShareJohn Battle’s Versatile Skillset Allowed Him To Make Plays At LSU; How Could He Help The Redskins?Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsJohn Battle IV, SSchool: LSU | Conference: SECCollege Experience: RS Senior | Age: 23?Height / Weight: 6-0 / 201 lbsProjected Draft Status: 5th RoundNFL Comparison: Adrian PhillipsCollege ExperiencePlayer OverviewLSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond was able to secure John Battle’s commitment to the program after a long recruitment process where NC State, USC, Tennessee among lots of other schools where trying to lure Battle to their programs. Raymond’s “DBU” pitch, citing how the program has developed secondary prospects and how many make it to the NFL won over Battle. Battle also really wanted to play in the SEC citing that it had “big boy football”. Battle joined a secondary that had future 1st round picks Tre’Davious White and Jamal Adams so he didn’t see much action until after the 2016 season. Once he stepped into the starting role he became a solid contributor to the LSU secondary. He’s was tasked with more responsibilities under defensive coordinator Dave Aranda. It required him to study more and to be more vocal on the field as he came up to the front and called checks for the defensive linemen. Battle posted below average scores at the NFL combine so I’m sure he’s hoping that people go back to the tape to assess his play. Battle figures to be a late day 3 selection who can come in and contribute on special teams to start off his career and potentially get some time on the field on defense as a 3rd safety. StrengthsGood size, physicality, hands and length for the position.Has ability to come downfield in a hurry to help with run support. Read and react ability is good and he takes good pursuit angles. He is successful more times than not when he’s one on one in open space and needs to make a stop. Has the ability to come up and play close to the LOS a la a nickel linebacker. Shows decent fluidity and change of direction ability in coverage. Shows decent range when playing deep zone coverage. Shows good ability to track the ball and shows good hands.Has worked to add strength and weight to take on lineman and work through blocks. Tasked with ability to relay key communication of adjustments to the defensive line.LSU defensive scheme allowed for versatile interchangeable safeties. Battle has experience playing in the box and at free. WeaknessesHigh tackler who sacrifices leverage and power for contact. Looks like more of a big speed bump than powerful authoritative tackler.Eyes can deceive him and he can bite on set up moves from receivers. Once he gets turned around he has trouble resetting his position locating the ball and recovering. Can get lost out there when the play is extended by the QB. Loses where he is on the field in relation to the closest receiving threat and where the ball is. Coverage awareness is lacking.Lacks second gear in his acceleration and agility you want to see at the position.Let’s see his work:More John Battle IV videosHow He Would Fit On The RedskinsBattle’s path to making an NFL roster is going to be through special teams. He is going to have to clean up his tackling technique, hand placement and leverage so he can get off blocks, awareness, and overall sense of urgency to make the final 53. I think a lot of his deficiencies are coachable but coming from DBU with proven position coaches I err on the side of that he has a clear ceiling in some of these areas. He lacks natural coverage instincts which is slightly surprising considering his background as a corner. I’m not sure how much this area can improve but if he could remain more disciplined with his eyes and learn some more technique work in coverage I’m willing to bet he would place himself in a lot of good positions when the ball comes in his area. When it does come to him he’s proven he can finish plays with takeaways. This could take several seasons though and I’m not sure I see him in any other role than a 3rd safety who plays in the box on sub package. The Redskins could still use a player like this to fill out the bottom of the depth chart and it would allow them some more versatility in certain sub packages. I still question if the Redskins want to expand their defensive play calling from the box it’s currently in so it’s quite possible a lot of these well built interchangeable safeties may not be that high on the board for them. Battle disappointed at the combine with his testing numbers but he’ll have a change to improve them so the look more in step with his game film at his pro day. If he can do that he can recapture the attention of a lot of teams including the Redskins.
