Washington Redskins: Complete Seven-Round Mock Draft

January 20, 2016 • John Ulecka • D.C., Front Page, Lists, NFC East, NFL Draft, Washington Redskins

1st Round: ILB Reggie Ragland, Alabama

The Redskins have gotten good production from Mason Foster and Will Compton, but Ragland is a top-tier talent that can boost any defense. Ragland provides the Redskins with a playmaker at the inside linebacking position.

2nd Round: CB William Jackson III, Houston

Washington has relied on Will Blackmon and converted WR Quinton Dunbar in the secondary. Jackson can bring a big corner that can help in nickel packages.

3rd Round: DL Chris Jones, Mississippi State

Veteran defensive lineman Jason Hatcher is contemplating retirement, and depth at the position will be much-needed. Jones combines size and speed for a 3-technique, and would be a huge asset in Washington’s 3-4 scheme.

4th Round: S Elijah Shumate, Notre Dame

Dashon Goldson, 31, and DeAngelo Hall, 32, are not getting any younger and Washington will be looking for youth on defense this Spring. Shumate would give Washington a player who can contribute in all phases.

5th Round: C Evan Boehm, Missouri

This selection would give Washington interior OL depth, and Boehm could potentially be a starter on the front line later down the road.

6th Round: WR Devon Cajuste, Stanford

Adding Cajuste, a wideout with deep ball ability who can also be an immediate special teams contributor, would be a smart move for Washington.

7th Round: G Connor McGovern, Missouri

Depth at offensive line is a need for Washington, and adding McGovern here would provide that help for Washington.

7th Round: DL Jihad Ward, Illinois

Ward is a defensive lineman that possesses the ability to play both end positions in a 3-4 defense.
