At least for right now, the Washington Redskins still sit at the 4th slot in the draft. There are rumors that Washington may indeed try and trade up with the Rams at No. 1 so they can take Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford. I can not possibly imagine how much the Redskins would have to give up. My other concern with that is, don't the Redskins have several needs, I mean, several, not just a few. How does trading multiple picks help? Second, who will block for Sam Bradford? Chances are, QB Jason Campbell would be included in the deal. Does that mean, ummmm, Rex Grossman will start? Or would the Redskins throw Bradford right in the mix?
Only one real thing is very clear. The Washington Redskins front office may have changed, but the Draft is going to be far, far from boring.
The Weekly Mock Munch of the web's most updated NFL Mock Draft Database included munching together the 114 most updated mock drafts, all updated between March 24th and March 31st. You can read the latest Mock Munch article on the Top 9 leaders and trends we have noticed, right HERE.
Here are what the mock draft writers are projecting for the Redskins at No. 4. OT Russell Okung leads with 41%. That is down 8% from last week. Why? Because several mock drafts are projecting Okung to go No. 2 to Detroit. In fact, both the Rams and Lions selections greatly impact what Washington does at No. 4. The Bucs will have little impact on the Redskins.
Things get real interesting if the Top 2 picks are Sam Bradford and Russell Okung, the two guys the Redskins likely have 1 and 2. Do they go OT with Bryan Bulaga or Trent Williams? What if Ndamukong Suh falls to #4? Do you really pass him up? Is the Eric Berry visit serious or just smoke?
Here are the breakdowns:
OT Russell Okung (47 mocks)
QB Jimmy Clausen (40 mocks)
OT Bryan Bulaga (5 mocks), QB Sam Bradford (5 mocks
DT Ndamukong Suh (4 mocks)
OT Trent Williams (3 mocks)
