#RapidMock Grades: Washington Redskins

WAS 1 18 SD   @roccoskins Jake Locker – QB – Washington
WAS 2 48 OAK   @roccoskins Chrisian Ballard – DL – Iowa
WAS 2 50 SD   @roccoskins Ryan Williams – RB – Va Tech
WAS 3 81 OAK   @roccoskins Rodney Hudson – OG – Florida State
WAS 6 177     @roccoskins Thomas Keiser – OLB – Stanford
WAS 6 181 OAK   @roccoskins Terrance Tolliver – WR – LSU
WAS 7 213     @roccoskins Ricky Lumpkin – DT – Kentucky
WAS 7 224 IND   @roccoskins Will Yeatman – OT – Maryland
WAS 7 253     @roccoskins Aldrick Robinson – WR – SMU


Coming into the draft the Skins needs were the following. QB, OG, WR, DB, DL. They addressed every need seemingly checking them off one by one. Trading down to get an extra second who turned out to be Ryan Williams, while still getting the starting QB they targeted almost was un-skin like. Locker’s biggest issue will be his accuracy but with McNabb certain to be playing elsewhere was a must have. Ballard has first round talent and will be an immediate starter. Ryan Williams when healthy is one of the best RB’s in this class. Hudson can play C or G and was the top rated Center on my board. 4 picks 4 needs met and 4 starters. In rounds 6 and 7 they got good value with Tolliver and Robinson adding size and speed to the WR corps. Yeatman has a chance to to learn and has te Athleticism to contribute. The first 4 picks make this draft and the last 5 add some depth at need positions.

Overall A
